The Indiana Pacers guard Tyrese Haliburton suffered a left hamstring strain during his team’s 133-131 win over the Boston Celtics on Monday night. Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle revealed that Haliburton would undergo an MRI on Tuesday in order to diagnose the issue.

During the second quarter, Haliburton was driving to the hoop before halting in his tracks and slipping. He subsequently did the splits and grabbed at his left thigh before being carried to the locker room by his teammates with 3:10 left in the half. At halftime, the Pacers ruled Haliburton out for the remainder of the game.

The team will be highly concerned for Haliburton given the major impact that he has had on their season. Averaging a team-high 24.2 points and a league-high 12.7 assists across 32 games, he also played a role in leading the Pacers to the Finals of the inaugural NBA in-season tournament.
