|Tristan Thompson: Should suit up Friday|
Thompson is expected to be available to make his Pacers debut Friday against the Cavaliers, Tony East of the West Indianapolis Community News reports.
The Scoop: All three of Thompson, Tyrese Haliburton and Buddy Hield were at practice Thursday, and coach Rick Carlisle said he anticipates that the three ex-Kings will be available Friday night. Haliburton and Hield figure to play major roles right away, but it remains to be seen whether Thompson will be a part of the regular rotation. The veteran doesn't exactly fit the rebuilding Pacers' timetable, so it wouldn't be surprising if Carlisle favors younger options like Goga Bitadze, Isaiah Jackson (ankle) and Oshae Brissett down the stretch.
