Bitadze (ankle) will not play in Monday's game against the Wizards, Scott Agness of Fieldhouse Files reports.

While the Pacers did note that Bitadze has progressed to 1-on-1 work with contact, he's not quite ready to return to game action yet. Monday will mark his seventh straight absence, which comes at a difficult time for the Myles Turner-less Pacers. Expect Domantas Sabonis and Oshae Brissett to handle most of the minutes up front Monday.
