"If he does come back, it's going to be awhile," Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said. "We've got to go on the idea that this may be it as far as who we have available. There's a very slight chance he could return before the season is over."

Tinsley has been sidelined for nearly two months with a foot injury that doctors have yet to diagnose. Tinsley has spent nearly a week in Manhattan seeing a specialist, Dr. William Hamilton. The Pacers are expected to talk with Hamilton today.

Yeah, I don't expect to see Tinsley before the playoffs. And with the way AJ has been playing, I'm okay with that. I hope that if Tinsley does come back for the playoffs that AJ still gets a chance to start, at least for the first few games or for the first series.

This is really confusing, a couple of weeks ago they were saying that he should be returning soon, and now it looks like he's going to miss the rest of the season and quite possibly the playoffs. But as you said StephenJackson, AJ has been playing great of late, and they need to keep a good thing going.

Well, I think the bottom line is that they never really diagnosed his injury correctly. So I think they we were under the assumption that it was something much less severe than it really turned out to be.

I was just reading on Yahoo that they finally found out the problem.

Mar 30 The Pacers finally figured out what is wrong with point guard Jamaal Tinsley's injured left foot on Tuesday, and the answer is not good. Pacers coach Rick Carlisle told the Indianapolis Star that a bone scan revealed a sprain and stretched ligament in the middle of Tinsley's foot and his season could be over. "He's out for at least another two weeks…We'd love to get Jamaal back, but at this point we have to assume it's going to be awhile if we get him back at all," Carlisle said.
