This is a jab at the other thread but it's also a legit question seeing as how the Pacers have lost 4 games in a row since his injury against Golden State (he only played 13 minutes due to injury in that game).
Even when CJ's not hitting his shot, he usually plays good defense and he provides spacing on the floor that the Pacers just don't have with Donald Sloan. Evan Turner running the point has been pretty disastrous as well, especially from a defensive standpoint. C.J. really is the best on the team at staying in front of his man defensively. George Hill is good at closing out on jump shooters but he gets beat off the dribble on a regular basis when he has to play someone quick like Steph Curry or Patrick Beverley.
I'm hoping there's nothing seriously wrong with his elbow.
