Elfrid Payton (sore right ankle) will not play on Friday against the Pacers.
Payton has been on fire of late so this is a tough development coming out of the All-Star break. Frank Ntilikina and Dennis Smith will split the point guard work for as long as Payton is out, though neither is a standard-league option. Smith has more upside as a scorer while Ntilikina might be safer as a simple steals specialist.
