INDIANAPOLIS — One of the Pacers’ star players will undergo season-ending surgery, the team announced on Saturday.

The team says he is expected to make a full recovery before the 2024-25 season.

Mathurin has been averaging 14.5 points per game and shooting 44.6% from the field this season.

The Pacers have not announced who will be taking his place on the starting roster for the remainder of the season.
