    I don't know man, the season is 3 months away, he will get the surgery now and be in a cast and heal by then. The big part will be rehab and getting into game shape that could take another 3 months or so but yeah Indiana will definitely lose momentum and probably won't be in the top 4 team in the east as a result.

    I would say Chicago was way worse off with rose being out and they still made it to the playoffs. We'll just have to see. Personally I hope they at least rally together and get chemistry going again after such a horrible injury to their teammate.

    Chicago has a much better coach and Noah is miles better than Hibbert (even when Hibbert wasn't shitting the bed every night).

    With Lance gone too, I don't know how Indiana is going to break 85 points on average.

    Vogel has been doing just fine and has been spearheading the pacers upwards since he got the job. Thibodeau being a "much better coach" is debatable. Obviously were gonna have to wait and see what happens, but if that Chicago team still managed to score a measly 90 points a game last season with dj augustin as your pg, I'm sure the pacers can figure out something.

    Or maybe they'll end up tanking. Who knows.

    How is this debatable! Look at the rosters that Thibs has been dealing with, and look at what he's done! The man should have won a nobel prize by now!

    Thibs might be too hard on his players, but he's a top 5 coach in this league hands down
    Last year, he took a really injured Bulls team with Deng in hospital, Noah on one leg, and NATE ROBINSON as the starting PG to the 2nd round in the playoffs.

    Just reported that PG will likely miss the entire season. So yeah we can officially cound Indy out of the playoffs.

    They do still have some talent there though. Hibbert, West, Hill, Watson and Scola are all pretty good but I guess it isn't enough.

    That's nowhere near enough. Knicks have a better chance of making the playoffs now than Indy. Unless Hibbert turns into the next Kareem Abdul Jabbar lol.

    where do you think vogel would fit in the coach rankings? keeping in mind he also got the honours to coach the all star game which is obviously a nod to what hes done with the pacers.

    Technically it's only because they had the best record at the break, and if you're going to look at that, you also have to look at the fact that they completely went into the shitter in the second half of the season.

    Indy's absolutely screwed. even if PG somehow plays say, half the season, they're screwed. with him out and lance gone who's scoring? david west? george hill? give me a break.

    hibbert has to essentially go back to playing above and beyond back when he was actually good. it's not far fetched but it's also not something i see really happening

    And even if Hibbert comes back a changed player it's gonna be tough.

    With a compound fracture like his there is no reason to believe he will have long term effects. It looks worse than it is. A knee injury effects performance more. Unless he gets an infection or is spooked by leaping he shoiulkd be OK. He'll probably miss most or all of next season but be OK 2015-16.
