Slick Leonard remains hospitalized after fall on ice over the weekend

Hall of Famer Slick Leonard is still in a local hospital with a leg injury after he took a “nasty tumble” on the ice over the weekend. The longtime analyst on the Pacers Radio Network has missed the last two game broadcasts and is expected to be out at least through the end of the week.

Mark Boyle, in his 30th season as the Radio Voice of the Pacers, has generously provided several updates and intends to provide more in the coming days.

The latest update was shared on Twitter at halftime of the Pacers’ dominant win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday.

From Boyle: “Spoke with Slick this afternoon. Still in the hospital, in pain but in good spirits, with a lot of visitors in and out and a number of phone calls, too, lifting his spirits. Still hoping to go home soon.”

According to Boyle, Slick is appropriately in room B529 (as seen below) — the same number of wins he had as Pacers head coach from 1968-1980. He’s the winningest coach in franchise history.

Leonard is in his 32nd season on the Pacers Radio Network. He provides color commentary beside Boyle for all home games.
