Andrew Nembhard will not be returning for the Indiana Pacers in their matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks. The athletic guard was going full throttle on a fastbreak ahead of Damian Lillard when he injured his right knee while going for a layup. Nembhard missed the shot, but Tyrese Haliburton was there to put the ball back in. He stayed on the floor for a few minutes before teammates carried him to the locker room.
The ESPN’s team covering the game announced that Nembhard hyperextended his knee. It was unfortunate, as he was playing well for the Pacers. He exited after having played 14 minutes, tallying eight points, two assists, one steal and one block.
