INDIANAPOLIS -- The Pacers will be without forward Lance Stephenson for Friday's home game against Portland.

Stephenson, who has four triple-doubles this season, injured his lower back in Indiana's 89-85 win over Atlanta on Tuesday.

Stephenson, who is averaging 14.1 points and 7.2 rebounds, has started every game he's played in this season. He missed the game against Atlanta where Danny Granger started in his place.

Granger will start for Stephenson against the Trail Blazers.
