Indiana Pacers All-NBA guard Tyrese Haliburton is unlikely to play in Game 3 on Saturday night vs. the Boston Celtics because of a left hamstring injury, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Haliburton left the third quarter of the Pacers' Game 2 loss in Boston after aggravating the injury. 

Haliburton missed 10 games with a left hamstring strain suffered Jan. 8 against the Celtics, and the injury has limited him at points this season. 

After posting 25 points and 10 assists in Game 1, Haliburton finished with 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting (2-of-6 from 3-point range) and eight assists. The Pacers outscored the Celtics by one point with Haliburton on the floor in Game 2 but were outscored by 17 when he was off it.

The Pacers enter Game 3 in Indianapolis down 2-0 in the series.
