#Pacers, minus most starters, fall to Timberwolves indy.st/1wjtSqA via @indystar

Scott Agness

#Pacers Frank Vogel on George Hill’s left knee contusion: “It swelled up pretty good so we’ll see how he is tomorrow and take it day to day”

Chris Singleton

I'll really have ppl mesmerized if I started calling them instead of texting. They'll probably think the world is coming to an end

Candace Buckner

Twitter temperance here bc my stuff is acting like it's dial-up. #Pacers score 63 thru 3 quarters and oh btw, starting PG is out for the gm

Scott Agness

One starter remains… #MakeItStop RT @PatBoylanPacers: Bruised left knee for George Hill will not return tonight.

Candace Buckner

To be precise, it's a left knee contusion for George Hill per @Indiana Pacers. He won't return.

Candace Buckner

#Wolves up 72-55 with 2:51 to go in 3rd Q. Hibbert and G. Hill both up to 14 but just announced that Hill has a knee contusion and is out.

Candace Buckner

Realization: Ricky Rubio can shoot. He's 4-8 after knocking down another midrange jumper. 16 points and only 3 assists

Candace Buckner

Roy Hibbert at 10 points and 8 rebounds here with 5:16 to go in the third quarter but #Pacers down 69-48

Candace Buckner

The tweet deck struggle is real. Running real slow, gang.

Candace Buckner

Anthony Bennett puts #Wolves ahead 52-37 at end of the first half by getting inside and tipping in a miss. #Wolves have 16 pts in the paint

Candace Buckner

#Pacers be like…" Lemme call you back, I'm bout to shoot this 3 right fast." (Now 4 for 13)

Candace Buckner

#Pacers have already attempted 12 3-pointers to little success (4 makes) while #Wolves have 12 points in paint

Candace Buckner

G. Hill had tied the game at 37-37 but the fouling on the end rearing its head. #Wolves' Anthony Bennett gets fouled & completes 3 pt play

Candace Buckner

"Dank" is who my iPhone thinks "Damo" should be by the way

Candace Buckner

Dank can't buy a three at this point

Candace Buckner

And yes, I watch way too many home improvement reality shows. and if you got that last reference, so do you.

Candace Buckner

In other news, Vanilla Ice is taking a break from building homes with the Amish and playing the #Wolves home opener next week.

Candace Buckner

Vogel quick with substitution trigger. G. Hill back on the floor again and #Wolves lead 32-28 with 8:31 to go in 2nd Q

Candace Buckner

Next possession: Copeland sees mismatch with Mo Williams guarding him, so immediately posts him from baseline and draws foul.

Candace Buckner

Copeland back in the game at the start of the 2nd Q, comes in hitting his second 3-pointer of the game. Has 6 pts

Candace Buckner

After 1st Q: #Wolves lead 21-19. Birthday boy Ricky Rubio leads Minny with 6 points.

Candace Buckner

Sloan pops a jumper near end of buzzer but #Pacers nearly give up an alley oop at the rim. #Wolves botched it but trans D fell asleep

Candace Buckner

Hibbert is looking for his guards, this time tries to dish inside to cutting S. Hill but pass was too far ahead of where he was parked. TO

Candace Buckner

Only one there under rim to get em RT @st3vie_: @Candace Buckner Is Hibbert fighting for all those boards or are they just "falling" to him?

Candace Buckner

"...at the end of the day, when everybody’s healthy, what will happen then?" - Donald Sloan

Candace Buckner

Sloan: "Just trying to earn my keep. I’m trying 2 get out there on the court….

Candace Buckner

The Original "Jack Boy" Donald Sloan now in. Talked to him b/4 the game, he's cautiously positive abt his preseason...

Candace Buckner

#Wolves with 6 points int he paint and three fast break points so far. That was an issue the first time #Pacers played them

Candace Buckner

#Pacers call timeout with 2:42 remaining in 1st Q as #Wolves take over lead 16-15.

Candace Buckner

Bingo! Thanks, Tony! RT @dukedynamite: @Candace Buckner tap on the gear on your main feed, then tap your account. http://t.co/hXB4x9F2p2

Tried that, only option is to show "5 recent Items" I do want some. Not all.RT @st3vie_: @Candace Buckner Settings > Notifications > Twitter

Candace Buckner

After timeout, Solomon Hill joins the floor in place of Chris Copeland.

Candace Buckner

during this break, iPhone users, tell me how to turn off all notifications of favorites and RTs on my phone... pretty please.

Candace Buckner

At first timeout, after jumping ahead 9-0, #Pacers now only up 13-12. Miles and G. HIll both with 4 points a piece

Candace Buckner

#Pacers have picked up fourth team foul at 6:51 mark. #Wolves settling in and going to the line now to cut into 11-8 lead

Candace Buckner

Along with good signs of #Pacers ball movement, would love to see body movement. Guys aren't moving till ball finds em.

Candace Buckner

#Wolves have missed first four shots while #Pacers have started 4 of 5 and lead 9-0

Candace Buckner

Nice possession down, Hibbert finds George Hill inside for his second bucket. Then Copeland drains a 3. #Pacers lead 7-0

Candace Buckner

Miles decided to take the pull up shot over K Martin instead of passing to Roy open on baseline.Missed but still think that's rt decision

Candace Buckner

#Wolves Flip Saunders says national media has it wrong abt team's inexperience. So why is POD's "Youth Of the Nation" played during intros?

Candace Buckner

Hunger makes us do some crazy things - like eat this mess of burnt yellow stuff & convince my brain it's sustenance http://t.co/hqj65hF0tW

Candace Buckner

#Pacers looking for 2nd, and 3rd, effort under the glass. Also, guards need to help on weak side. So, more crashing all around

Candace Buckner

#Pacers second to last preseason test. Stuff to watch: rebounding, especially on offensive glass. Indy ranking dead last in that category

Candace Buckner

Not televised today, gang. I'll tweet more. Gotta get in regular season mode RT @MichandaMossor: is this game on fox sports indiana

Candace Buckner

But no cutting and running for Stuckey "just yet." He said the foot was bothering him b/4 CLE gm last Wed. But didn't pay attn to it.

Candace Buckner

But Stuckey isn't just collecting food money on this trip. He's able to lift & do cardio in pool. Also mentioned he can do spot shooting

Candace Buckner

Was surprised to see that Stuckey, who's been ruled out of preseason, traveled with the team. He joked: "I got to get that per diem!"

Candace Buckner

On another injured #Pacer who will actually come back soon, Stuckey, said he expects to get another MRI this weekend on bone bruise on foot

Candace Buckner

It was suggested today in media session that PG's shooting was encouraging. Vogel responded: "He’s on one foot, he’s not really close."

Candace Buckner

After after new pic/video clip of Paul George taking shots or looking very spry, #Pacers coach Frank Vogel will have to squelch enthusiasm

Candace Buckner

#Pacers starters vs MIN: G. Hill Miles, Copeland, Scola, Hibbert

Michael Pointer

Plus, being off the grid tonight means no Fleetwood Mac tweets. Seems all my "older' friends are going. Have a good time.

I'm off to @CrackersComedy in Broad Ripple for Open Mike Night. Would love to have you join me. No #Butler jokes.

#Butler mailbag will be up in the morning, but we still have room for a question or two. Tweet me.

there's no greater sense of accomplishment than transcribing a 49-minute interview an hour ahead of pre game availability. Where's my medal?

Both West and Vogel described it as a "pretty good" sprain, which Dr. Bruno interprets as pretty bad.

West MRI shows nothing more than ankle sprain. He hopes to be ready for #Pacers opening night.
