It is very tiring to average 4.6 rebounds a game as Hibbert did in March (1.7 boards a game in April), so he believes it would be best for the Pacers to rest up.
Here is what he had to say courtesy of Pacers.com.
“Getting our health right, resting our minds and our bodies is probably the best thing,” said Hibbert. “We had a lot of games last month so fatigue might have been a problem. We’re just going to get our mind’s ready for the playoffs.
“A couple days off will probably be good for us.”
We will see if this is just a bandaid or something that the Pacers really needed. The entire starting five is getting the night off against the Bucks.
