Tyler Hansbrough Limited to Non-Contact Drills

According to the Indianapolis Star, Tyler Hansbrough is still only being allowed to participate in non-contact drills. There's currently no timetable for him to return to contact drills.

The Breakdown
With the trade of Troy Murphy, this is Hansbrough's chance to become the Pacers starting power forward. Unfortunately, he's been moved cautiously as he recovers from vertigo. Hopefully Hansbrough is good to go by training camp or he could open the door to other players getting minutes at power forward. The Pacers are very shallow at the 4, so they could end up having to play small fowards like Danny Granger, Mike Dunleavy, and Paul George at the power forward spot as long as Hansbrough is out. Keep an eye on him as your draft approaches, but Tyler remains a strong sleeper pick this coming year.
