Indiana’s ace, second in assists in the league, will return to the court within this week


Halliburton is ready to return to the court.

Indiana Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said in an interview with the local media after team training on the 1st (Korean time) that Tyrese Halliburton will return soon.

Coach Carlisle said of Halliburton, “I have improved a lot. I digested all the training schedule with other players today. I can return within this week,” he said, announcing the ace’s imminent return. 메이저놀이터

Halliburton, who debuted in Sacramento in the 2020-2021 season, transferred to Indiana through a trade during last season. Immediately after taking the position of the team’s main ball handler, he clearly revealed his presence in every game and established himself as the center of the team’s rebuilding.

Halliburton was making a big success this season as well, having a career high season with an average of 20.2 points, 4.0 rebounds and 10.2 assists in 40 games. In particular, his stable reading ability shone enough to rank second in assists average in the league following James Harden.

But his injuries got in the way. Halliburton suffered a knee and elbow injury on January 12 and was out of power, and Indiana, which maintained a good mood with him, only won one game in 10 games after Halliburton was removed, and the rankings plummeted.

Still, another welcome reinforcement will arrive with Halliburton. Backup big man Daniel Theis, who joined Indiana through a trade before the season opener but couldn’t even make his season debut due to a knee injury, is also almost ready to return. With Halliburton and the Thais back and the rotation solid, Indiana will again emerge as the dark horse of the Eastern Conference.
