After getting injured on Monday night, Pacers guard Tyrese Haliburton reportedly will miss next Thursday's game against the Kings.

The team said Tuesday that an MRI revealed Haliburton suffered a left hamstring strain after slipping in Monday's game against the Celtics.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Haliburton will be re-evaluated in approximately two weeks, which would force him to miss the Jan. 18 game in Sacramento.

Haliburton, the former Kings guard, is in the midst of a breakout season. He's averaging 23.6 points, 12.5 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game while leading the Pacers to a 21-15 record.

While it's unfortunate for Haliburton to miss time, the positive side is that he appears to have avoided a serious long-term injury.
