What a scare for Tyrese Haliburton! But Pacers can breathe a sigh of relief

Tyrese Haliburton in these first 36 games of the season is playing MVP: the point guard of the Indiana Pacers, fourth in the East tied-merit with Orlando and Miami, is maintaining 23.6 points and 12.5 assists average, best assistman of the season. Last night, however, in a hard-fought victory over Boston (with much controversy), Haliburton suffered what looked like a bad injury. The player fell to the ground during a penetration and was carried by arms by teammates off the field.

The initial suspicion was that he had injured some ligament, a circumstance that would force him into a long layoff just shortly after the NBA had already lost Ja Morant for the rest of the season. Instead, fortunately, Haliburton suffered “only” a muscle injury and will be reevaluated in 2 weeks.. In short, the Pacers will lose him for a while, but surely they can get him back, probably in late January.
