Indiana Pacers franchise star Tyrese Haliburton is set to participate in the team’s practice in the upcoming week, coach Rick Carlisle announced Sunday (h/t Jeremiah Johnson).

The said update can only be rejuvenating for the Pacers fans, as the club went tumbling down with a 1-9 record in the absence of Haliburton, who has been holding the keys of their offense.

Haliburton has been out since Jan. 11 after sustaining a knee and elbow injury against the New York Knicks. T.J. McConnell replaced him as the temporary point man of Carlisle in the starting unit.

This season, Haliburton is averaging 20.2 points and 4.0 boards. He is also leading the league in assists average, tallying 10.2 per contest.
