Indiana Pacers point guard Tyrese Haliburton suffered a Grade 1 strain in his left hamstring in the second quarter of Monday night’s victory against the Boston Celtics, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The All-Star hopeful is reportedly expected to be reevaluated in two weeks.

Haliburton suffered the injury when his pivot foot slid, splitting his legs on a drive to the basket before halftime. Multiple players had slipped on the Gainbridge Fieldhouse floor prior to Haliburton’s injury.

Haliburton is averaging 23.6 points (on 50/40/87 shooting splits) and a league-best 12.5 assists per game for the Pacers, who completed a comeback against the Eastern Conference-leading Celtics in his absence.

Indiana owns a 21-15 record, tied with four other teams behind the Celtics, Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers. A two-week timeline would cost Haliburton seven games, including the entirety of a brutal six-game road trip through Atlanta, Denver, Salt Lake City, Sacramento, Portland and Phoenix.

In January of last season, the Pacers were 23-19, sixth in the East, when Haliburton suffered a bone bruise in his left knee. They finished 1-9 in his 18-day absence, fell to 11th place and never climbed from the hole.
