Malcolm Brogdon Is Back To Full Health

Prior to the suspension of the NBA season, Malcolm Brogdon went down with a hip injury. There was an expectation that he would be unable to return for much of the regular season if any of it. Now, he is back to full health and would be available to play whenever the season resumes.

Brogdon had been a huge part of the Pacers’ success all season long. He was averaging 16.3 points per game to go along with 7.1 assists and 4.7 rebounds. In addition to those numbers, he shot 43.9 percent from the field and knocked down 31.3 percent of his three-point attempts.

Obviously, his three-point percentage was a bit disappointing after shooting 42.6 percent from the arc with the Bucks in 2018-19. However, his presence was huge for the Pacers’ offense.

Having him back on the court if the season resumes is a massive plus for Indiana.
