The Pacers will be without four starters when they play Atlanta on Monday night.
David West will miss his fifth consecutive game with a lower back strain. Danny Granger still has not returned from a sore left knee.
And the Pacers have added Lance Stephenson and point guard George Hill to the injury list. Stephenson has a strained right hip flexor, Hill has a strained left groin.
Coach Frank Vogel says it's possible all four could play Wednesday at Houston though team doctors are more concerned about Hill's injury than Stephenson's.
Indiana's revamped lineup will have D.J. Augustin, Paul George and Gerald Green in the backcourt, Tyler Hansbrough at forward and Roy Hibbert at center.
Dahntay Jones is expected to start for Atlanta, which will be without Lou Williams and Zaza Pachulia.

There is no question that the Indiana Pacers are one of the league's deepest teams, but the Central Division leaders would prefer to have their entire roster available at once.
They could move closer to full strength Wednesday night if Lance Stephenson and David West return for the start of a four-game trip that kicks off against a resurgent Houston Rockets team.
The Indiana Pacers did fine initially without David West, but the power forward's absence may be starting to catch up to them.
It's hard to say, though, how missing West will affect Monday night's matchup with an Atlanta Hawks team seeking a third straight road victory.
Indiana (43-27) won its first three games without the power forward before falling 87-84 at Chicago...

PLAY THE BALL
Nate Robinson was ejected during the third quarter of Saturday night’s game vs. the Bulls Central Division rival Pacers after flagrantly fouling Lance Stephenson. After having the ball stolen from him, Robinson chased Stephenson down and grabbed him above the neck forcing him to the floor. Initially it was called a Flagrant 1, but after review Robinson was ejected when the call...
Really, there's no excuse for Nate Robinson's foul last night. The Chicago Bulls' guard was trying to prevent an uncontested dunk by Indiana Pacers' guard Lance Stephenson. Rather than fouling as if he were trying to reach for the ball, Robinson made it very clear that he simply had no intentions of allowing Stephenson to reach the hoop. He grabbed Stephenson...
