Tyrese Haliburton is on his way to his first All-Star appearance — the coaches will have to vote him in as a reserve, but that’s unquestionably going to happen — in the wake of him taking another step forward leading the surprising Pacers toward the postseason.

Now Indiana will have to get by without him for a few weeks.

The injury happened in the third quarter of the Pacers’ loss to the Knicks on Wednesday, when Haliburton used a hesitation move to drive to the rim, then an up-and-under move to get the shot off, only to land awkwardly. He stayed on the ground, left the game not to return, and left the arena on crutches.

Haliburton averages 20.2 points a game shooting 39.9% from 4, a league-leading 10.2 assists plus four rebounds a night as well. With him out, expect to see more Andrew Nembhard and T.J. McConnell minutes, but it won’t be the same.
