Amid a year of difficulties with players and staff, first-year Indiana Pacers coach Nate Bjorkgren’s future with the franchise is uncertain, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
Bjorkgren reportedly has work to do on relationships with key players in his locker room and has thus far shown a willingness within the organization to try to address those issues, Wojnarowski also notes.
There’s a lot of issues inside the locker room that need to be addressed, as it’s been an unusual year, but things have been bumpy, notes Scott Agness of Fieldhouse Files.
The Pacers have dealt with several injuries to key players throughout the season including Myles Turner (missed 17 games and counting), Jeremy Lamb (missed 28 games and counting), Caris LeVert (missed 24 games due to renal cell carcinoma of his left kidney) and TJ Warren who will have missed 68 games by the end of the season.
The Pacers currently have a record of 30-34 and sit in ninth place in the Eastern Conference.
