David West (back) will not play in games on Friday or Saturday, and he is also doubtful for Monday's game against the Hawks.

That gives Tyler Hansbrough a three-game ramp for owners and from there it's anybody's guess at this time. West is a tough guy that the Pacers will want healthy for the playoffs, so one can make competing arguments about how fast he will rush back into action, though we'd expect the team to play it safe. Give Hansbrough a long look right now, and note that the Pacers finish up with a 4-3-3 schedule after this week.
