Cavs without Isaiah Thomas, Dwyane Wade, among others vs. Pacers

INDIANAPOLIS -- Isaiah Thomas and Dwyane Wade were out of the lineup for the Cleveland Cavaliers' 97-95 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Friday night.

Thomas has not yet been cleared to play on consecutive nights as he continues to play his way back from an injured right hip. Wade was resting.

Two other guards, Iman Shumpert and Derrick Rose, were also unavailable for the Cavs, who have lost seven of their past nine games.

Shumpert missed his 20th consecutive game since having arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. Rose hasn't played since early December because of a sprained left ankle.

Domantas Sabonis made his second straight start at center for the Pacers as Myles Turner sat with an injured right elbow. Sabonis finished with 12 points and 15 rebounds in 28 minutes.

The Central Division-leading Cavaliers are 0-3 against the Pacers this season.
