    Default What happens if too many Pacers get suspended?

    What if we don't have enough guys to suit up? Do we have to forfeit games?

    You only have to have 5 guys to play. The league can also grant an exemption allowing a team to temporarily add players but that's generally in the case of everyone being injured, not 4 guys injured and 3 suspended. I believe the league can still allow that. The Warriors got one several years ago because everyone was hurt.

    Let's assume JO, Ron, and Jax all get suspended. That leaves:

    C - Harrison/Edwards
    PF - Cro
    SF - JJ
    SG - Freddie
    PG - Tins/Gill

    7 players.

    A number of years ago it happened where a bunch of pacers came off the bench in a malee. The way it works is that you have to dress 8. So, the Pacers that were suspended were done in alphabetical order until their time ran out and then the next group would be suspended, but the Pacers were allowed to dress 8.

    It's conceivable that they'll also suspend Gill, Freddie and Harrison since they left the area of the bech by going into the stands, even though it was to break things up. It would be stupid, but that hasn't stopped the NBA before...

    As far as I know, that's still the rule.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Well, this is now the reality. We only have 7 active players. This is insane.

    It doesn't look like the NBA is going to allow that this time, so what happens now? Do we have to "activate" a player from the IR? Will they allow us to only dress 7 players?

    We've got nine. One of Bender/ Pollard will have to put on a uniform and sit on the end of the bench.
