Rest For Heavily Utilized Players

Let’s be honest, there are some players in Indiana who were playing roles that they had never played before. Domantas Sabonis was one of those players.

After coming off of the bench for the first couple of years with the Pacers, Sabonis became a full-time starter this season. He was averaging 34.8 minutes per game, which is a raise of 10 minutes per game from the 2018-19 season.

This break in action has given Sabonis and other Pacers’ players time to rest. Every team is getting that same luxury, but Indiana needed it.

Sabonis and company will be able to come back rested and ready to rumble if the NBA returns. Him being fresh and full healthy will help Indiana compete with a team like the Heat. It is a small plus in a very negative situation for the wide world of sports.
