T.J. Warren's rehabilitation continues, but not at the pace the Indiana Pacers had hoped.
The Pacers provided this update on Warren's status Tuesday: "Indiana Pacers forward T.J. Warren’s stress fracture in his left foot is healing during the rehabilitation process; but not at the pace previously anticipated. He remains out indefinitely, and further updates will be provided as warranted."
After the update was announced, Warren tweeted that he is rehabbing as fast as he can without rushing the process.
Warren, 28, played the first four Pacers games last season before suffering a small navicular stress fracture in his left foot that eventually required surgery in January and cost him the rest of the 2020-21 season. He averaged 15.5 points over those four games.
Warren was stellar in his first season with Indiana in 2019-20, leading the team with 19.8 points per game while averaging 4.2 rebounds and 1.5 assists. He was particularly impressive when the NBA season restarted inside the bubble in Orlando, Florida, in August, averaging 31.0 points and 6.3 rebounds over six regular-season games, then 20.0 points and 6.3 rebounds during the Pacers’ four-game playoff series with the Miami Heat.
