Pacers forward West to sit out against Magic


Posted Mar 19, 2013 7:31 PM

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indiana Pacers forward David West will not play Tuesday night against the Orlando Magic because of a sprained lower back.

The Pacers' second-leading scorer will be replaced in the starting lineup by Tyler Hansbrough. Coach Frank Vogel says he hopes West will be back in time for Friday's game at Milwaukee.

Vogel also says injured swingman Danny Granger has been increasing his workload in practice and could return to action sometime next week. Granger has missed most of this season with patellar tendinosis in his left knee.
