Jim Ayello: Sabonis said he weighed himself this morning and is still 7-8 pounds below his normal playing weight. Food poisoning sucks.
Mark Montieth: Nate McMillan says it was the shrimp in Orlando that made him and @Domantas Sabonis ill. McMillan nearly didn't make the game last night. Sabonis is a game-time decision. No truth to the rumor that @Kyle O'Quinn ws the one who recommended the shrimp to Sabonis.
J. Michael Falgoust: Sabonis is IN tonight. Not surprising given he was out here this time working out #PacersKings
Scott Agness: Domantas Sabonis will NOT play tonight in Orlando due to food poisoning. You know it must be bad if it’s keeping him out. That will open up minutes for Kyle O’Quinn, who spent his first three years with the Magic.
J. Michael Falgoust: Sabonis (sick) is questionable for tonight. There was just an optional shoot around this morning. Oladipo (knee) who is still OUT was participating fwiw #PacersMagic
J. Michael Falgoust: Turner (ankle) is OUT and Sabonis (ankle) is IN for tonight's game and the likely starter. That pushes O'Quinn into the 1st center off the bench role #PacersSpurs
J. Michael Falgoust: McMillan says knee to knee contact with Giannis caused Sabonis’ to “stiffen up” overnight so O’Quinn is the backup 5 tonight. Leaf (ankle) remains out #NetsPacers
Scott Agness: Pacers center Domantas Sabonis won’t play tonight. Nets without DeMarre Carroll, Alan Williams, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Shabazz Napier and Treveon Graham.
Scott Agness: Domantas Sabonis twisted his left ankle pretty good during pre-game shooting. McMillan hopeful that he’ll be able to play on four-game road trip.
Domantas Sabonis suffered a left ankle sprain Tuesday night in Philadelphia and X-rays were negative, according to Pacers head coach Nate McMillan. Sabonis went back to the locker room and did not return to the floor.
Scott Agness: Nate McMillan wasn’t sure whether Sabonis (right calf) would travel to Detroit. He’s day-to-day, like all of us.
Domantas Sabonis posted a video to his Twitter account last week that showed the Thunder rookie unpacking a new mattress in Oklahoma City. Also in the video: A fat bandage around his left index finger. On Monday, Sabonis told The Oklahoman he cut his finger while lifting weights. The cut required stitches, but Sabonis said he'll be ready for the start of training camp on Saturday.

For something like a partial ACL tear, diagnosing that was important. What are the differences between knee sprains that affect the ACL ligament? DR. NGUYEN: So the grading scale is more of a guideline. Grade ones and grade threes are relatively straightforward in terms of treatment. The grade ones, usually non-operative, the grade threes are typically operative for elite athletes. Basketball players and soccer players, football players, are required to do a lot of cutting and pivoting.
