Pacers guard Lance Stephenson is “fine,” a team spokesman said, following his involvement in a minor two-vehicle traffic accident Monday evening.
“He’s practicing today,” said David Benner, the team spokesman.
Police ticketed the driver of the other vehicle for driving without a license, according to an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department report.
The basketball player was headed to a “Shop with the Pacers” event at Greenwood Park Mall shortly before 6 p.m., a team spokesman said, when he rear-ended another vehicle driven by Tameisha Hinton, 30, Indianapolis, in the 7800 block of U.S. 31 South.

It's not often that we get a family affair in the NBA but for this season at least, the Indiana Pacers have two Hansbrough brothers on their team.During tonight's Pacers/Cavaliers game, Ben Hansbrough unfortunately got hit in the face by Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson.Watch as his older brother Tyler comes to aid and starts to jaw with Thompson:
In case you didn't know, Tyler Hansbrough's little brother Ben plays on the Pacers. He recently got promoted to back-up point guard over D.J Augustin after Augustin struggled for the first month in limited minutes. Bens getting an opportunity to show the Pacers that he can co-exist not only with this second unit but his brother as well.
Ben is lucky that out of all...
Let's face it, it's now only going to be a matter of time before the Indiana Pacers capture their maiden NBA title, because coach Frank Vogel has announced that Ben Hansbrough, the baby brother of Tyler "Psycho-T" Hansbrough, is about to become the Pacers' back-up point guard. Starting (well, coming off the bench) tonight in their game against the Cavaliers...
Roy Hibbert has had plenty of struggles this season.credit: blogimages.thescore.com
Since earning a massive contract with the Indiana Pacers in the offseason, Roy Hibbert has had his fair share of troubles on the court. He is averaging a pedestrian 10 points and 9 rebounds per game, while his Player Efficiency Rating(PER) is still under 15, considered the league average. He’s shooting...
Roy Hibbert sad face
Background: Roy Hibbert, he of the Indiana Pacers, said to Yahoo! Sports' Marc J. Spears that he wil be the best center in the NBA one day. Apparently, this means he does not realize that Dwight Howard, Marc Gasol, Greg Monroe, Anderson Varejao, Andrew Bynum, Kevin Love, Brook Lopez, Al Horford, etc. are all centers in the NBA right now and are pretty...
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook displayed his impressive athleticism with a clean block of a dunk attempt by Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert during the fourth quarter of Sunday's NBA game at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
The block is more impressive given that Russell stands only 6-foot-3, nearly a foot shorter than Hibbert, who stands 7-foot-2.
Ben Hansbrough has been elevated to backup point guard of the Pacers ahead of D.J. Augustin.
Roy Hibbert‘s quest to become the best center in the NBA is not going so well. The 7-foot-2 Indiana Pacers big man may be coming off a career season, but on Sunday against the Oklahoma City Thunder he posted another disappointing stat line with 10 points and six rebounds.
Oh, yeah. And this happened, courtesy of 6-foot-3 point guard Russell Westbrook:
INDIANAPOLIS -- It took nearly a full half for the Indiana Pacers to play the way they expected to while facing one of the worst teams in the NBA. When they found their form, the Pacers were off and running. Indiana used an 18-0 run that stretched from the end of the second quarter into the third quarter to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 96-81 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Wednesday...
The Thunder took down the Pacers 104-93 on Sunday, but Russell Westbrook did much more than that with just one block. Westbrook met the 7′ 2″, 280 lbs Roy Hibbert at the rim and let him know he was not welcome. Westbrook stuffed a Hibbert dunk attempt with a ridiculous amount of enthusiasm. The result was the loss of all self-esteem and balance for Hibbert.
Russell Westbrook got up last night. He earned the block of the night against Pacers center Roy Hibbert. Hibbert stands nearly a foot taller than Westbrook(6'3) at 7'2. This speaks a lot for the ups that Westbrook has as a point guard. Check out the block of the night in the video below.
The Indiana Pacers didn't stand much of a chance against the first...
