  • Pacers' Daniel Theis: Out Friday

    Theis (knee) is out for Friday's game against the Bucks.

    Theis is closing in on a season debut, but it won't come Friday. His next chance to suit up arrives Sunday against the Grizzlies. It's possible he's not an every-game player once available, though coach Rick Carlisle is struggling to find reliable backup center minutes.

  • Pacers' Daniel Theis: Still out Wednesday

    Theis (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against Orlando.

    Although coach Rick Carlisle said Monday that Theis would be available "soon," the 30-year-old will remain sidelined for the second half of a back-to-back set Wednesday. While he's been progressing well in practice recently, he's unlikely to have a consistent spot in the frontcourt rotation once he's deemed healthy.

  • Pacers' Daniel Theis: Closing in on season debut

    Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle said that Theis (knee) won't be ready to play in Tuesday's game against the Bulls, but the veteran center is progressing well in practice and will be available "soon," Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    Theis has been sidelined all season while recovering from the surgery he underwent in November on his sore right knee, but he's been taking part in on-court work for the past month and appears to have ramped up his activity during the Pacers' recent practices. Though Carlisle's comments suggest Theis is considered day-to-day rather than week-to-week at this stage, the 30-year-old is unlikely to have a spot in Indiana's rotation whenever he's ultimately cleared to make his 2022-23 debut.

  • Pacers' Daniel Theis: Practices, but lacks clear timeline

    Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle said Tuesday that Theis (knee) has been cleared to take part in more activities during practice, but the center remains without a clear timeline to make his season debut, Tony East of SI.com reports.

    Since Carlisle didn't specify that Theis has been cleared for full-contact, 5-on-5 work, the 30-year-old big man will presumably need at least a few more days to ramp back up after undergoing surgery in November to address persistent soreness in his right knee. Expect Theis to remain out for both ends of the Pacers' home back-to-back set this weekend against the Hawks and Grizzlies, but a return at some point during the team's four-game road trip next week that kicks off Monday in Milwaukee could be realistic.

  • Pacers' Daniel Theis: Begins ramping up again

    Theis (knee) said Dec. 21 that he's been cleared for on-court work but remains on a week-to-week timeline for making his 2022-23 debut, Tony East of SI.com reports.

    After undergoing surgery on his right knee seven weeks ago, Theis has begun what will likely be a lengthy ramp-up process before he's cleared to suit up for the Pacers. Until Theis progresses to full-court, 5-on-5 work in practice, his season debut shouldn't be viewed as imminent. Even once he's deemed available, Theis may not have a spot in the rotation waiting for him if all of Myles Turner, Aaron Nesmith, Jalen Smith, Isaiah Jackson, Oshae Brissett and Goga Bitadze are healthy.

    Theis has undergone surgery on his sore right knee and is considered out indefinitely, Tony East of WTHR Channel 13 Indianapolis reports.

    Theis has been battling knee soreness since before EuroBasket during the summer and has yet to make his debut. The decision to undergo surgery means he will be sidelined for an extended period, though this should benefit his knee situation in the long run.
