NBA basketball is a highly competitive sport that demands players sprint as hard as they can, jump as high as they can and stay in tip-top shape at all times. Unfortunately, these extreme physical stresses result in occasional injuries.

Because these players need to get back in the game as soon as possible, they require top experts in orthopedics. That is why the Pacers have Dr. Timothy Hupfer, OrthoIndy sports medicine specialist on the sidelines and ready to treat them when they need it most.

The role of the team physician

Dr. Hupfer evaluates players during the week and is on the sidelines during games to take care of injuries. During the game, he evaluates players who may have sustained injuries to determine whether they can safely get back in the action.

Post-game, Dr. Hupfer may provide further evaluations to help plan the players’ treatments and rehabilitation for the week. He also takes care of necessary surgeries or referring players to other OrthoIndy physicians as needed.

“Being the team physician of the Pacers has allowed me to work with a great group of talented athletes,” said Dr. Hupfer. “These guys are determined to work hard and get back in the game as soon as possible after an injury. It’s a rewarding experience to see an elite athlete return to the court after an injury.”
