Caris LeVert (health protocols) ruled out for Pacers' play-in game Tuesday

Indiana Pacers shooting guard Caris LeVert will not play in Tuesday's play-in game against the Charlotte Hornets due to health and safety protocols, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.

What It Means:

LeVert is expected to remain sidelined if the Pacers advance. He left Sunday's game early due to a migraine, but LeVert was fully expected to play in Tuesday's matchup. T.J. McConnell and Justin Holiday should take on larger roles with LeVert sidelined. Doug McDermott could also be more involved on offense. Malcolm Brogdon (hamstring), Domantas Sabonis (quad), Aaron Holiday (toe), and Edmond Sumner (knee) all remain questionable.

Sumner is now numberFire's top overall point-per-dollar value among all players Tuesday. He has a $3,900 salary and our models project him for 25.6 FanDuel points. McDermott is second, with a $4,700 salary and 25.5-point projection.
