Indiana Pacers point guard C.J. Watson will not play tonight against the Mavericks due to a sprained right elbow. Watson will miss his third straight game due to the injury, according to Scott Agness on Twitter.In Watson's two game absence, the Pacers got hammered on the road against the Bobcats and Rockets, losing by 22 and 26 points. Watson plays a big role for Pacers - his experience and knowledge takes pressure off George Hill and Paul George. And without him in the lineup, it's fair to say those two are feeling it a little.Sam Forencich/Getty ImagesIn 59 games this season, Watson is averaging 6.3 points and 1.7 assists in 19.1 minutes.The Pacers have been have been struggling of late, but fortunate for them - so have the Heat. They will look to end their longest losing streak of the season (three games) tonight when they head into Dallas.Indiana currently sits first in the Eastern Conference with a record of 46-16.
