Pacers modify expectations after George's injury

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Pacers forward David West brought a reality check to media day.

Instead of discussing championship aspirations, playoff chances or goals, West carefully and continually steered the conversation toward what he sees as Indiana's biggest challenge: life without Paul George and Lance Stephenson, the Pacers' top two scorers last season.

"Paul's loss is big, Lance's loss is big. Obviously, you can't anticipate what happened with Paul," West said Monday, referring to the gruesome broken right leg George sustained in early August. "But you've got to give yourselves a realistic starting point. You can't be talking about being a championship contender or whatever right now. We've got to talk about getting the best guys on the floor to compete."
