This is going to be fun...The Indiana Pacers, who are on a three-game losing streak, could be without forward Troy Murphy against the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday.
Murphy, who is third in the league in rebounds, is doubtful with a left calf contusion.
Murphy injured his calf when teammate Brandon Rush accidentally kicked him in it in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 23-point loss to the Toronto Raptors.
“I’ll decide that tomorrow,” Pacers coach Jim O’Brien said when asked who would start if Murphy doesn’t play. “We have options to go small. We’ll make that adjustment and worry about it when they tell us Murph can’t go.”
Murphy is 14.1 points and 11.9 rebounds a game this season.
