David West misses shootaround with respiratory infection, will play
David West is dealing with an illness and missed the shootaround before Game 6 Saturday. He's expected to play for the Indiana Pacers.
From the Indiana Pacers:
David West was absent from Pacers shootaround today with an upper respiratory infection. He will play in tonight's Game 6. (via @pacersdmb)— Indiana Pacers (@Pacers) June 1, 2013
West is averaging 18.2 points and 8.4 rebounds against the Heat, but the Pacers have been outscored by eight points with him on the floor. In a series this close that feels huge but the bigger issue is how bad the Pacers' bench has been. If West is limited at all, that means more minutes for Tyler Hansbrough and ... yeah, that's pretty much it for the Pacers' power forward corps.
We'll see if West has a "flu game" in him or if the illness winds up having a negative impact on the Pacers as they try to avoid elimination in Game 6 Saturday night.
