Domantas Sabonis DeMarcus Cousins

Domantas Sabonis has been ruled out for the game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday with a quad injury.

Sabonis is dealing with a bruised left quad and will not be in the Pacers lineup vs the Lakers.

Apart from the Lithuanian center, another five Pacers players are out for the contest, with the team being extremely short-handed against the defending champions.

Indiana has clinched its spot in the play-in tournament. They are currently tied with the Charlotte Hornets for eighth in the East (33-37).

On the other hand, the Lakers (40-30) want to remain undefeated in their last two regular season games in order to improve their chances to avoid the play-in tournament.
