  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Won't play Sunday

    Smith (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Knicks.

    Smith will miss back-to-back contests to end the 2022-23 campaign. Across 68 appearances (31 starts), the third-year big man averaged 9.4 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 18.8 minutes per game.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Questionable for finale

    Smith (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Knicks.

    Smith didn't participate in Friday's game versus the Pistons due to some knee soreness, though it's also possible he was getting some late-season rest on a Pacers squad that has been eliminated from the playoffs for a bit. Should he return to action in the finale, Smith could play a larger role than usual, depending on the status of other regulars in Indiana's rotation.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Won't play Friday

    Smith (knee) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Pistons, Tony East of reports.

    Smith banged his knee during Wednesday's loss to the Knicks and will sit out at least one matchup. It's unclear whether Myles Turner (back) will be available, but Isaiah Jackson and Daniel Theis could see some additional minutes in Smith's absence.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Questionable Friday

    Smith is questionable for Friday's game against the Pistons due to right knee soreness.

    Smith has started three of the last five matchups, averaging 14.2 points and 7.6 rebounds in 25.2 minutes per game. It's unclear whether his knee injury will prevent him from suiting up, but if he's available, his role will depend on whether Myles Turner (back) is able to return from his six-game absence.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Posts strong two-way line

    Smith ended with 19 points (8-11 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, three blocks and two steals across 26 minutes during Wednesday's 138-129 loss to the Knicks.

    With Myles Turner (back) sitting out six straight games, Smith and Isaiah Jackson have split duties on the top unit, making three starts at center apiece. Neither center has topped 30 minutes in this stretch, but both have managed to maintain fantasy relevancy. Smith's 19 points led the Pacers on Wednesday, and he has scored in double figures in six straight games. The 23-year-old is shooting 55.7 percent from the field over that stretch and has also chipped in 7.5 boards, 1.2 blocks, 1.2 three-pointers, 1.2 assists and 0.7 steals per contest.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Back in starting lineup

    Smith will start Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

    As expected, Smith and Isaiah Jackson continue to split starts at center with Myles Turner (back) sidelined. However, it doesn't really matter who's in the starting unit, as they both play around 20 minutes a night. Over the past five games (two starts), Smith has averaged 12.6 points and 8.4 rebounds in 25.0 minutes per game.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Strong production off bench

    Smith finished Sunday's 115-105 loss to Cleveland with 12 points (5-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds and two blocks in 27 minutes.

    With Myles Turner (back) out, Smith and Isaiah Jackson continue to split time at center. However, despite coming off the bench Sunday, Smith saw more minutes than Jackson and significantly outproduced him. Over his past five appearances (two starts), Smith has averaged 12.6 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.2 steals-plus-blocks in 25.0 minutes.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Retreats to bench

    Smith isn't starting Sunday against Cleveland.

    Smith started two of the last three games, but Isaiah Jackson will draw the start at center Sunday with Myles Turner (back) out once again. Smith should still see ample playing time off the bench.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Posts double-double as starter

    Smith finished Friday's 121-117 victory over the Thunder with 12 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-3 FT), 15 rebounds, one assist and one block in 29 minutes.

    Smith made the most of his second start in the last three games, leading the game in rebounds en route to his eighth double-double of the campaign. Smith continues to receive increased run with Myles Turner (back) sidelined, averaging 12.8 points and 8.5 boards over 24.5 minutes in that four-game span. The Pacers have minimal incentive to get Turner back on the floor, so Smith could continue to see heavy usage over the final four games of the regular season.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: All-around game in return to bench

    Smith contributed 17 points (8-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt), six rebounds, four assists and one steal across 20 minutes before fouling out of Wednesday's 149-136 loss to the Bucks.

    Smith returned to the bench with Isaiah Jackson getting the starting nod, leading the second unit in scoring and shots made while finishing with the second-most rebounds on the team. Smith has posted at least 10 points and five rebounds in three straight contests.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Not starting Wednesday

    Smith isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

    Smith and Isaiah Jackson continue to alternate starts, with Jackson getting the nod versus Milwaukee. However, both centers continue to see similar workloads, which limits each players' overall fantasy value.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Starting Monday

    Smith will be in the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Mavericks, Dustin Dopirak of the Indianapolis Star reports

    Smith is getting the spot start with Myles Turner (back) unavailable, and he'll be joined in the first unit by Andrew Nembhard, Jordan Nwora, Bennedict Mathurin and Aaron Nesmith. As a starter this season, Smith has registered averages of 10.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.1 triples, 0.8 blocks and 1.3 turnovers per contest on 42.6 percent shooting from the field and 80 percent at the stripe.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Strong performance off bench

    Smith had 14 points (4-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), eight rebounds and four assists across 23 minutes during Thursday's 139-123 victory over the Bucks.

    Smith operated as the primary backup big man and played at least 20 minutes for the fourth time over his past five appearances. During that stretch, he's averaging 10.8 points, 6.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.2 blocks in 21.6 minutes. Smith appears to have a firm grasp on the top frontcourt reserve gig, but his minutes will likely start to fall as Myles Turner works his way back to 100 percent following a two-game absence from a back injury.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Scores game-high 20

    Smith contributed 20 points (7-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), nine rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 25 minutes during Saturday's 121-115 victory over the Pistons.

    Head coach Rick Carlisle's usage of his backup center had been somewhat unpredictable of late, but with starter Myles Turner (back) sitting out Saturday, the door was open for both Isaiah Jackson and Smith to split minutes at the position. Though Jackson garnered the start, both he and Smith produced well during their time on the floor. With Carlisle already ruling Turner out Monday's rematch with the Pistons, Smith and Jackson both shape up as strong streaming options once again.
