Mere weeks after signing a two way contract with Indiana Pacers, Ghana Center Amida Brimah is on the verge of competing in the NBA Playoffs.
Indiana Pacers could progress to the playoffs should the team win two games in the Play In Tournament; the team ranks 10th in the Eastern Conference and secured the final ticket to the Play In competition.
Pacers are in line to play ninth seed Washington Wizards in the Play In Tournament; a win sets them up against the loser of the seventh and eighth seeded teams presently occupied by Boston Celtics and Charlotte Hornets respectively.
The Pacers play Toronto Raptors at 17:00 GMT today in the final Regular Season game and could rest multiple starters paving the way for Brimah to play after a lengthy period of inactivity.
The 6 foot 10 defender was as an emergency signing following a slew of injuries that hit several Pacers front court players. However, the likes of Domantas Sabonis and Goga Bitadze have returned from injury forcing to miss out on games.
He had a bright start after signing his contract registering seven points, four rebounds, two blocks and an assist in 12 minutes against Oklahoma City Thunder.
