The Indiana Pacers’ decline as of has been well documented.
They have lost seven of their last nine games, including an embarrassing 107-88 defeat at the hands of the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday.
Pacers’ head coach Frank Vogel told reporters on Tuesday that he was going to be giving his team more rest and would be sitting a few starters on Wednesday night when they traveled to Milwaukee to take on the Bucks.
“Not everybody will play,” Vogel explained. “We’ll pick our spots over the final four games to get the guys that need rest some rest.”
Apparently, when Vogel said “not everybody” would play, he meant that nobody would play.
According to Candace Buckner of The Indianapolis Star, none of the Pacers’ five regular starters will will take the court Wednesday.

That means the Pacers will be without Roy Hibbert, David West, Paul George, Lance Stephenson and George Hill.
