After holding Malcolm Brogdon out the last two games, the Indiana Pacers will be shutting down their starting point guard for the next 10 days. Pacers Coach Rick Carlisle announced that Brogdon would be undergoing a rehab program for his right Achilles.

The last time Brogdon saw any action was against the Los Angeles Lakers last week when he contributed 19 points, six assists, and four rebounds in 26 minutes in a Pacers win.

The Lakers game is one of only two games Brogden has been able to play in the past month, along with the January 12 game against the Boston Celtics when he played only 17 minutes. A stint in the NBA’s health and safety protocols kept him out of the lineup as well.

Brogdon’s upcoming absence is just the latest of a long list of injury problems to key players for the Pacers. Indiana is missing Domantas Sabonis who is out due to an ankle injury suffered in the Lakers game last week, Myles Turner (stress fracture in foot), T.J. McConnell (hand surgery) and T.J. Warren, who has yet to suit up because of a broken foot.

Brogdon is averaging 18.5 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 5.9 assists in 28 games. The Pacers (17-30) are on the road toplay the Pelicans (17-28) on Monday
