Lance Stephenson fills the stat sheet in loss (Nov 19 12:00 ET )
Lance Stephenson returned to Indiana on Wednesday night in a losing effort, scoring 10 points with eight rebounds, seven assists and two blocks.
Lance Stephenson played 30 minutes in a 107-80 loss to the Mavericks on Monday, scoring six points with six rebounds and seven assists.
The Scoop:It's pretty clear he's still dealing with his groin issue and he was grimacing throughout this game. Stephenson is going to have to play through it and it might be a while until he's 100 percent. We do expect him to play on Wednesday against the Pacers, his former team.
Lance Stephenson scored 16 points on 7-of-10 shooting in a loss to the Warriors on Saturday, while adding four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.
The Scoop:He came into the game with a questionable tag due to his ailing groin, but he appeared fine throughout the game. Born Ready did however fail to register a single rebound on the night after he had been one of the league's leading rebounders in the beginning of the season. He will likely bounce back sooner rather than later and owners can continue to deploy him as usual.
The Scoop:Stephenson told beat writer Rick Bonnell after the game that his groin strain "flairs up intermittently in a way you really can't predict." Bonnell added that "the only treatment would be rest, and Stephenson doesn't care to miss any more games." It's a good news/bad news situation where you can comfortable with the effort to stay on the floor, but hope he doesn't push too hard or suffer from efficiency issues as a result.
