As the Indiana Pacers face a daunting 3-0 series deficit against the Boston Celtics, concerns loom over the availability of their star guard Tyrese Haliburton.

Haliburton, who has been sidelined with a left hamstring injury, faces uncertainty regarding his return for the remainder of the series.

NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski shed light on Haliburton’s situation, suggesting that the Pacers may prioritize caution with his injury.

Given Haliburton’s history of hamstring issues, including a 10-game absence during the regular season, the Pacers are wary of risking further injury by rushing his return.

“The Pacers are going to err on this side of caution with his left hamstring injury,” Wojnarowski said on ESPN’s NBA Countdown. “For that reason you may have seen Tyrese Haliburton for the last time in this series. They’re not going to put him in a position where if he went out and played it’s going to look like it did with OG Anunoby in Game 7 for the Knicks against Indiana where he was so limited in what he could do.

“Remember, this is the same played who missed 10 games during the regular season with that same left hamstring, came back early to join Pascal Siakam in his debut for the Pacers for the Pacers and then was out for a stretch of time again. He’s past of the US Olympic team this summer, Grant Hill selected him ass one of Team USA’s guard.

“They’re going to reassess this on Monday ahead of Game 4, but I think there’s real doubt that Tyrese Haliburton would be back in Game 4 and perhaps even again in this series.”

With Game 4 looming, the Pacers will reassess Haliburton’s status, but doubts linger over his potential availability.
