Tony East: “TJ Warrens situation is one that’s going to take a little longer than we had hoped,” Carlisle says. He’s had a pair of scans in recent weeks, and the one last week revealed “good news,” Carlisle said. “It’s going to take some time,” he added they don’t have a concrete timetable
TJ Warren: Pacer fans. Just wanted you to hear this straight from me. I’m making sure I do this rehab process right so that I can get back on the court as soon as I can and be the best that I can.
Indiana Pacers forward T.J. Warren’s stress fracture in his left foot is healing during the rehabilitation process; but not at the pace previously anticipated. He remains out indefinitely, and further updates will be provided as warranted.
Scott Agness: NEW: The Pacers finished the season without Myles Turner, and T.J. Warren’s season didn’t last one week due to injuries. Both are progressing in their rehab and sat together today. Here’s the latest on their health: fieldhousefiles.substack.com/p/turner-warre…
J. Michael Falgoust: When TJ Warren was declared out, there was a slim chance that he'd return. I was told after the plug was pulled #Pacers wanted to keep him in engaged w/rehab on the long shot he could return. Asked a person w/knowledge of the situation if he wanted a trade. Response: "That's BS."

J. Michael Falgoust: Warren and Turner are “good to go,” per Bjorkgren #PacersKnicks
The Indiana Pacers could open this season without forward T.J. Warren, their top scorer from last season. The team said Thursday that Warren has plantar fasciitis in his right foot and will be listed as week to week. It's the same injury that kept All-Star forward Domantas Sabonis from returning to action in the NBA's bubble in August. Indiana also will be without backup guard Brian Bowen II for 6-8 weeks because of a partially torn groin muscle.
T.J. Warren practiced Sunday. Barring something unforeseen, he will play on Tuesday in Game 1 of the Pacers' first-round playoff series with the Miami Heat.
“I’m just taking care of it every day," Warren said. "Anybody who’s familiar with plantar fasciitis, it’s pretty tough but the trainers have been doing a good job of getting me up for treatment and just being proactive with it. I’m gonna be good either way. I’m gonna be ready.”
Sabonis left the bubble to deal with the same injury and remains away from Orlando. Coach Nate McMillan said Sunday there still isn't a timetable for his return. Warren's case is obviously milder. It's unclear whether he participated fully in practice Sunday, as McMillan said some players were limited.
J. Michael Falgoust: McMillan on TJ Warren's plantar fasciitis: "He has been experiencing that really throughout the season. Been able to play on it." #PacersRockets

Indiana Pacers forward T.J. Warren left Saturday's game against the New York Knicks in the third quarter due to a head injury and was taken to a local hospital for evaluation, according to coach Nate McMillan. Warren left after falling under the basket where it appeared he hit his head on the floor. A few possessions prior, Warren appeared to collide with teammate Domantas Sabonis and was shaken up, remaining down for nearly an entire possession before staying in the game.
Scott Agness: T.J. Warren, who has missed 56 games over the last two seasons, says he’s completely healthy. “I’m feeling great. The trainers are doing a great job of keeping my body great.” His goal is to play a full season for the first time in his career.
Gerald Bourguet: BTW, here's what T.J. Warren had to say about the injury that kept him out for the final 33 games and not being able to come back: pic.twitter.com/mlRsCsaxun
Gerald Bourguet: Suns confirm Deandre Ayton and T.J. Warren are out tomorrow, along with Devin Booker, Tyler Johnson and Kelly Oubre
Duane Rankin: "He's still rehabbing. He did even more conditioning yesterday. He's close to getting back and playing." Igor Kokoskov on if #Suns are shutting down TJ Warren. Hasn't played since Jan. 22 with right ankle soreness/bruise. Will miss 29th straight game tonight vs. #Cavs. #Suns

Gina Mizell: Per #Suns, T.J. Warren (right ankle soreness) is OUT tonight at New Orleans. Tyler Johnson (right knee soreness) and Richaun Holmes (right quad strain) are both questionable.
Warren would feel even better if he was preparing to play for tonight’s matchup against Houston, but this will be the 21st consecutive game he’s missed with what Phoenix has called right ankle soreness. As Warren confirmed after shootaround, it’s more than that. “Mentally, it’s been tough,” Warren said. “It’s one of those things that’s kind of tricky. It’s like a bone bruise. Sometimes you feel it. Sometimes, it gets better. Sometimes it doesn’t. It’s one of those things that’s on or off. I just want to make sure I’m myself before I’m back.”
Warren’s been out since Jan. 22 when he reinjured it in the first half of a loss to Minnesota. Those bruises have been known to take up to two months to heal. “I just want to make sure I’m all the way back,” Warren added. Warren also made it clear he wants to play before the season ends. The Suns will have 12 games left after Friday's game.
Gerald Bourguet: Suns list Tyler Johnson (sore right knee) as questionable for tomorrow's game against Houston. T.J. Warren still out.

Duane Rankin: Igor Kokoskov said he has a limit restriction on TJ Warren coming back from the ankle injury, but didn't give the number when asked. "They shouldn't know." I'm thinking 15, 20 minutes. Kokoskov also said how the game goes won't impact his minutes. We'll see about that. #Suns

Gerald Bourguet: Tyson Chandler is out again tonight, but Warren should be good to go. Will replace Josh Jackson in the starting lineup. #SunsVsThunder

October 25, 2021 | 4:00 pm EDT Update
Marc Stein: The Sixers have stopped fining Ben Simmons for missed games and practices given that he is now out for personal reasons, one source close to the situation says, confirming a report this afternoon from @Ramona Shelburne on the NBA Today. More from me: marcstein.substack.com
I had the Hawks at No. 6 in my Power Rankings heading into training camp, which I think was higher than most preseason prognostications. Then I got some grief from a reader saying that I should have had you guys lower because the new rules designed to cut down on free throws awarded to players who initiate contact would affect your game greatly. How are you adjusting so far to the way games are being called?
Trae Young: I think it’s a more an adjustment on both sides, but also just me playing my game. I’ve been in a lot of meetings with [NBA head of referee training and development] Monty [McCutchen], trying to make sure of what’s a foul and what’s not. A lot of the [contract I draw] is a foul. Me going in front and stopping on a dime and defenders continuing to run into me, that’s still a foul. The league is good at that — being open to communicating about anything. Especially if a guy has questions. It’s not just me. I’m sure a lot of other guys have called and just tried to get more clarification on what’s a foul and what’s not.
So you’re not worried about a different sort of whistle this season affecting your game? Trae Young: Nah. I’m not, to be honest with you, even thinking about the refs and the foul calls. I can score without the free throws. But I’m a smaller guy, so a lot of guys like to be physical with me. I like using their aggression to my advantage. That’s really what it is.
