Pacers coach Rick Carlisle calls T.J. Warren's latest foot scan 'favorable'
INDIANAPOLIS — Before the Pacers hosted the Hawks on Wednesday night, Indiana coach Rick Carlisle provided an update on T.J. Warren, who has yet to play this season due to a left foot fracture. The same injury sidelined him for all but four games last season.
"T.J. Warren did have a scan (Wednesday) morning. It appears that the results are favorable and that there is continued healing," Carlisle said. "However, I can't give you any information on a timetable or anything because the doctor who did the surgery, there's gonna be a conference call in the next day or so for him to look at it to determine what the next step is and how aggressive the next step will be."
Warren is in his third season with Indiana. He averaged a career-high 19.8 points per game during his last healthy season in 2019-20 and has averaged 15.5 points per game on 50.7% shooting for his career.
The 6-foot-8 forward scored a career-high 53 points in a win over the 76ers inside the NBA's COVID-19 bubble in Orlando, Florida, in August 2020.
"The news continues to be gradually good," Carlisle said.
