Competition Heats Up for Pacers Starting Power Forward Spot

With training camp underway, the competition for a the starting power forward spot in Indiana is heating up.

The Breakdown
Heading into camp, Tyler Hansbrough is the favorite to earn the starting role. He'll have to prove, though, that he's over the vertigo and ear problems he's dealt with over the last few months. Josh McRoberts, Solomon Jones, and Jeff Foster are also vying for that starting gig.

This is an interesting situation to watch as the man who comes out on top could get big minutes and be a nice fantasy contributor this year. With Hansbrough's injury problems last season, it may be a good idea to pick up Josh McRoberts in deeper leagues just in case Tyler sustains another injury. While Foster and Jones are in the mix, the likely starter will be either Hansbrough or McRoberts.
