Haliburton suffered two injuries in Thursday’s loss. First, he received imaging on his chest during halftime and was declared available to return. Then he missed the final 16 minutes of Game 2 with what was originally declared a sore left leg and was later labeled a sore left hamstring. It’s the same hamstring that caused him to miss all but one game over three weeks in January -- he returned early to play in Pascal Siakam’s Pacers debut before missing more time.
