Pacers coach Frank Vogel says David West (back) is likely out for Friday and Saturday's games.

West is having trouble walking and has already missed two games with the injury, which is apparently much worse than originally thought. Fantasy owners in weekly leagues can't be happy with missing four games this week, but the Pacers' primary goal is likely to be making sure West is as healthy as possible for the playoffs. Tyler Hansbrough has been averaging a beastly 16 points and 12.5 rebounds in West's place the last two games.
