The Indiana Pacers will welcome star free agent addition Malcolm Brogdon to the lineup after playing without him for the majority of the past four games. The 27-year-old injured his back over a week ago, left that game after nine minutes, and has been out of action since.

Brogdon’s injury put the brakes on a solid start to the 2019-20 campaign. The former Rookie of the Year has averaged 19.2 points and 8.2 assists per game and been a big part of a Pacers team that figures to compete once again in the Eastern Conference.

Brogdon will not have a minute restriction in his return to action, Jeremiah Johnson of Fox Sports reports.

Brogdon considers himself to be back at 100% strength but, as Mark Montieth of the Pacers’ team site writes, doesn’t know exactly what caused the back strain in the first place.
