The Indiana Pacers announced earlier this week that Caris LeVert would miss Tuesday night’s play-in game against the Charlottte Hornets — a contest they won — due to health and safety protocols.

LeVert also will miss Thursday night’s play-in game against the Washington Wizards and multiple playoff games if the team wins Thursday. Multiple outlets reported LeVert would be sidelined 10 to 14 days.
