  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Ruled out Sunday

    McConnell (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Knicks.

    McConnell will miss back-to-back contests to end the 2022-23 campaign. Across 75 appearances (six starts), the veteran point guard averaged 8.7 points, 5.3 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 20.3 minutes per game.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Questionable for season finale

    McConnell is questionable for Sunday's game against the Knicks with right hip soreness.

    McConnell is one of six Pacers players to nab a questionable tag for the contest and could be in line for a massive workload if he's able to suit up. In his last 11 games, McConnell has averaged 13.5 points, 7.1 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.1 steals over 23.9 minutes. If he sits, George Hill and Gabe York would likely handle the brunt of the point guard work.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Ruled out Friday

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Status uncertain Friday

    McConnell (hip) is questionable for Friday's game versus the Pistons.

    McConnell is in danger of missing his first game since March 13 due to his hip injury. If he is ruled out, Andrew Nembhard, George Hill and Gabe York could see extended minutes, with Tyrese Haliburton (ankle) unavailable Friday.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Secures double-double off bench

    McConnell totaled 18 points (7-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 12 assists, five rebounds and two steals in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 138-129 loss to the Knicks.

    Tyrese Haliburton (ankle) has missed five straight games and could be done for the rest of the season, which has opened the door for McConnell's fantasy value to spike back up. He tied a season high with 12 assists Wednesday and helped out defensively with a couple of steals. Despite coming off the bench, the point guard is averaging 16.4 points and 7.6 assists per game in Haliburton's absence.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Just shy of triple-double off bench

    McConnell amassed 21 points (10-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt), nine rebounds, eight assists and one steal over 29 minutes during Friday's 121-117 win over the Thunder.

    McConnell took the offense upon himself Friday, finishing the night with a near-season-high 15 attempts from the field. When he wasn't scoring, he was doing his thing, distributing the ball to the tune of eight dimes, and he also crashed the glass, falling one board shy of reaching double-digits for just the second time in 2022-23. He should maintain a valuable role as long as Tyrese Haliburton (ankle) remains out, and the lottery-bound Pacers have little incentive to rush the star point guard back.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Thrives off bench in loss

    McConnell contributed 15 points (7-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt), seven assists, five rebounds and two steals across 28 minutes in Monday's 127-104 loss to the Mavericks.

    Though he didn't enter the starting five in place of Tyrese Haliburton (ankle), McConnell still picked up the largest share of minutes at point guard while starter Andrew Nembhard shifted over to the wing when the two shared the floor together. The Pacers haven't clarified their plans for Haliburton moving forward, but with the team currently sitting 3.5 games behind the Bulls for the final spot in the Eastern Conference Play-In Tournament, it wouldn't be surprising if Haliburton ended up being shut down to some degree. With that in mind, McConnell looks to be a strong speculative pickup for fantasy managers in need of steals and assists in particular.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Solid night off bench

    McConnell amassed 14 points (5-12 FG, 4-4 FT), one rebound, seven assists, one block and two steals across 22 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 118-114 victory over the Raptors.

    The Pacers relied on a balanced offense as six different players scored in double digits, but McConnell led the second unit. The veteran guard has scored 10 or more points in five of his last eight games, chipping in a double-double along the way, and he's supplying consistent fantasy value by averaging 11.4 points, 7.1 assists, 3.8 boards and 2.0 steals over that stretch in 24. minutes a night.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Posts double-double off bench

    McConnell (back) amassed 19 points (9-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt), three rebounds, 12 assists and one steal in 30 minutes during Thursday's 139-123 victory over Milwaukee.

    McConnell was excellent in his return from a two-game absence due to a back issue and took advantage of expanded offensive usage with Tyrese Haliburton (knee) sidelined. The veteran point guard's 12 assists tied his season high and his 19 points tied his third-highest scoring outing of the campaign. Over his past five appearances, McConnell is averaging 12.6 points, 6.6 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 2.0 steals in 25.0 minutes. He should continue to see a sizable role with Haliburton expected to miss at least two more contests.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Available Thursday

    McConnell (back) is good to go for Thursday's game against the Bucks, Jeremiah Johnson of Bally Sports Indiana reports.

    McConnell is back following a two-game absence. With Tyrese Haliburton (knee) out at least three games, the veteran should see an expanded role. In his six starts this season, McConnell has averaged 12.7 points, 8.8 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 31.3 minutes.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Iffy for Thursday's contest

    McConnell (back) is questionable for Thursday's matchup against the Bucks.

    McConnell has missed back-to-back games due to back soreness, but he returned to practice Wednesday and appears to be trending in the right direction ahead of Thursday's matchup. Tyrese Haliburton (ankle) is in the same boat as McConnell, but if both point guards are downgraded to out and join Bennedict Mathurin (ankle) and Chris Duarte (ankle) on the sidelines, Andrew Nembhard, Jordan Nwora and George Hill would all be candidates for significant roles in the Pacers' backcourt.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Practices Wednesday

    Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle said McConnell (back) practiced Wednesday, but the backup point guard's status for Thursday's matchup in Milwaukee remains to be determined, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    McConnell has missed back-to-back games due to back soreness, but he's getting closer to returning to game action. However, his official status for Thursday's matchup likely won't be known until the Pacers release their next injury report, which should drop sometime Wednesday afternoon.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Not playing Monday

    McConnell (back) has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Pistons, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    McConnell, Tyrese Haliburton (knee) and Myles Turner (back) will all be sidelined for the second game in a row after the trio sat out Saturday's 121-115 win over Detroit. In the absence of Haliburton and McConnell, expect Andrew Nembhard -- who posted 19 points and eight assists in 33 minutes Saturday -- to serve as Indiana's primary facilitator out of the backcourt in the rematch with the Pistons.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Ruled out Saturday

    McConnell will miss Saturday's contest against Detroit with a sore back, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    Indiana will also be without Tyrese Haliburton (knee), leaving the Pacers very thin in the backcourt. The absence of Indiana's top two point guards will pave the way for Andrew Nembhard and Chris Duarte to play extended minutes in what projects to be a great matchup for fantasy purposes.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Questionable Saturday

    McConnell is questionable for Saturday's tilt against the Pistons due to a sore back.

    Indiana may be especially shorthanded in the backcourt Saturday. In addition to McConnell being iffy, Tyrese Haliburton (knee) is questionable, and Bennedict Mathurin (ankle) has already been ruled out. Coach Rick Carlisle may have to give more prominent roles to Andrew Nembhard, George Hill and Chris Duarte.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Makes impact in steals category

    McConnell tallied 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, four assists and three steals across 22 minutes in Monday's 147-143 loss to the 76ers.

    Even with starting point guard Tyrese Haliburton logging 37 minutes, head coach Rick Carlisle was still able to carve out a 20-plus-minute role for McConnell, whose lack of a perimeter game typically makes him a poor fit as an off-ball player. McConnell managed to produce well during his time on the floor, but considering he played fewer than 20 minutes in four of the past five games, fantasy players can't yet count on him seeing enough playing time alongside Haliburton to replicate Monday's stat line regularly.
