Description: Hornets SG Lance Stephenson is dealing with a groin injury that is slowing his preseason, but he's probable for the opener.
Insight: Stephenson broke out for the Pacers in 2013-14, averaging 13.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game though he' sometimes out of control. It will be interesting to see how he, PG Kemba Walker and SF Gerald Henderson get along.
 
7/16/2014 3:46:00 PM
Description: The Hornets have signed Lance Stephenson to a three-year, $27 million contract.
Insight: The third year is a team option. Stephenson broke out for the Pacers in 2013-14, averaging 13.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game, though he played out of control at times and rubbed some people the wrong way with his on-court antics. He'll replace Gerald Henderson (14 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 2.6 apg) in the starting lineup.

Description: Pacers guard Lance Stephenson has been fined $10,000 for flopping in Wednesday's win over Miami. SOURCE: Scott Agness, Pacers.com
Insight: It's his second violation of the playoffs. Stephenson (13.8 ppg this postseason) is well-known for his quirks but even for him his behavior in Game 5 was pretty bizarre. Stephenson's high jinks included wandering into Miami's huddle and blowing into LeBron's ear. We'll see what kind of antics Stephenson has in store for Game 6 on Friday night.
 
5/25/2014 9:22:00 AM

5/22/2014 6:57:00 PM
Description: The league has fined Pacers shooting guard Lance Stephenson $5,000 for flopping in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals. SOURCE: Sports Illustrated
Insight: Stephenson makes $930,000 a year so that's less than one percent of his salary. He's played well recently, averaging 19.7 ppg over his last three contests. The series is tied at one heading into Saturday's Game 3 in Miami.
 
Hot5/21/2014 9:41:00 AM
Description: Indiana guard Lance Stephenson had his best game of the playoffs Tuesday in a loss to the Heat.

4/15/2014 8:56:00 PM
Description: The Pacers will rest all their starters Wednesday against the Magic and that includes shooting guard Lance Stephenson.
Insight: Indiana was able to clinch home court advantage when Miami lost to the Wizards on Monday night. That renders Wednesday's regular season finale meaningless. Stephenson will finish the year with averages of 13.8 ppg, 4.6 apg and 7.2 rpg in 78 contests. He was the NBA's leader in triple-doubles this season with five.
 
4/13/2014 4:14:00 PM
Description: Pacers guard Lance Stephenson (17 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists) got his swagger back Sunday in a win over Oklahoma City.

4/9/2014 4:46:00 PM
Description: Indiana shooting guard Lance Stephenson will miss Wednesday's game against the Bucks to rest, according to Candace Buckner of the Indianapolis Star.

3/5/2014 10:41:00 PM
Description: Pacers guard Lance Stephenson may have re-injured his groin Wednesday against Charlotte.
