Buddy Hield (illness) not on Pacers Friday injury report

Indiana Pacers shooting guard Buddy Hield (illness) is not on the injury report for Friday against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

What It Means:

Hield is on track to return from two-game absence, but it's worth noting that he was held out Wednesday after not being included on the initial injury report. Bennedict Mathurin and Jordan Nwora will have fewer minutes available if Hield does return.

numberFire's models project Hield for 27.1 minutes and 25.6 FanDuel points on Friday.
