Washington has started the season with four straight losses, losing to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics (twice), and Milwaukee Bucks. While Washington has only surrendered 95 points per game, the offense has been lackluster, averaging just 88.8 points per game -- 28th in the league.
Indiana enters Saturday's contest with a 2-4 record, but have dropped three straight games after starting the season 2-1. Indiana's strength so far this year has been rebounding, as the Pacers average 48.5 rebounds per game -- third in the league.
The Pacers will be without small forward Danny Granger, who will miss the next three months. Granger needed an injection into his left knee to treat patellar tendonosis.
Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET from Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Televised coverage can be found on CSN HD.
