Pacers forward David West is expected to play Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals at Miami, despite an injured right leg.
    
Team doctors held West out of Monday's practice with what coach Frank Vogel described as a calf strain or lower leg strain. He did shoot around with his teammates after practice ended. Vogel said doctors thought it would be best to give West a day off.
    
Pacers center Roy Hibbert had his right thumb taped after getting hit in practice. He finished the workout and it is not expected to keep him out of the Miami game on Wednesday night.
    
Backup forward Jeff Pendergraph did not attend Monday's workout to attend the birth of his daughter.
    
Indiana is making its first conference finals appearance since 2004.
