INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Indiana Pacers point guard Jamaal Tinsley sat out Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers due to a left thigh bruise.
Tinsley took a knee to the leg late in the win over Miami last Saturday. He played against New York on Monday and finished with two points on 1-for-8 shooting and 12 assists.
``I tried to play through it,'' he said before the game against Philadelphia.
Tinsley is averaging 14.8 points, 8.7 assists and 4.4 rebounds for the Pacers. He said the injury shouldn't keep him out for long.
