Though Pacers hoped he could move into the starting lineup when acquired from Sacramento prior to the 2003-04 season for Brad Miller, he never quite found a home in the rotation, but that should change this season as the veteran reported to camp in much better shape and more mentally prepared for a backup role. The goal is to rebuild his reputation as a high-energy, physical hustle player that made him a locker-room and fan favorite in Sacramento. The Pacers need a player of his size, strength and experience in the frontcourt, but it remains to be seen if Pollard will find a way to regain his edge.
Had his two biggest scoring games since joining the Pacers with 12 against Boston 11/23/04, followed by 13 against Minnesota 11/25/04. Those were his first back-to-back double-figure scoring games since 2002.
In the final game of '03-04, had a season-high eight points on 4-4 FGS against Chicago, 4/14
Made three playoff appearances, totaling 13 minutes, two points and four rebounds
Missed 40 games in 2002-03 with a lower back stress fracture, and 14 games due to a fractured right hand.
Had three double-doubles in '02-03, including 13 points and 16 rebounds at Indiana (4/1).
Posted a career-high 23 points against Golden State (4/16/02)
Ranked tied for 35th in rebounding in the NBA in 2001-02

Corralled a career-high 18 rebounds against the Clippers (3/2/01)
