ESPN reported that a PCR test confirmed Carlisle's condition, and that assistant coach Lloyd Pierce will take over on an interim basis.

Carlisle, 62, returned to the Pacers this season after 13 seasons with the Mavericks (2008-21), who are now under the direction of Jason Kidd.

Carlisle guided Dallas to an NBA championship in 2010-11 and departed as the winningest coach (555-478) in franchise history.

He previously coached the Detroit Pistons (2001-03) and Pacers (2003-07) and owns a career record of 847-705, including 11-16 this season.
