Top Pacers News

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Questionable versus Minnesota

    Johnson (elbow) is questionable to play in Wednesday's matchup with the Timberwolves.

    Johnson was also deemed questionable ahead of Monday's game before being ruled out due to a right elbow sprain. If Johnson isn't able to play Wednesday, his next opportunity will be Friday's game against the Wizards.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Listed questionable for Wednesday

    McConnell (illness) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup against Minnesota.

    McConnell has already missed back-to-back games due to an illness. Tyrese Haliburton (groin) is also questionable, so if both point guards remain sidelined, Andrew Nembhard, Aaron Nesmith and Bennedict Mathurin would be candidates for increased roles once again.

  • Pacers' Tyrese Haliburton: Questionable for Wednesday's game

    Haliburton (groin) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves.

    Haliburton missed both games of Indiana's recent back-to-back set due to a groin injury, but he'll have a chance to return Wednesday. The Pacers would have no reason to rush the point guard back if he wasn't 100 percent, so if he's available, Haliburton will be a must-start player in nearly every fantasy format. He's posting 19.1 points, 10.9 assists, 4.7 rebounds and 1.8 steals in 33.2 minutes per game.

  • Pacers' Myles Turner: Questionable Wednesday

    Turner (hamstring) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves.

    Turner sat out Monday's upset victory over the Warriors, which led to increased minutes for Jalen Smith and Oshae Brissett. Those two would presumably see more run again if Turner is out Wednesday.

  • Pacers' Oshae Brissett: Produces in expanded role

    Brissett ended with 14 points (5-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal across 32 minutes during Monday's 112-104 victory over Golden State.

    Brissett saw some extended run in this one, with Myles Turner (hamstring) ruled out for the game after being a late addition to the injury report. Brissett was unusually productive in the contest thanks to the extended run, drawing close to his first double-double of the campaign. While it's an excellent showing, Brissett shouldn't be counted on to consistently produce at this level. However, he could warrant a look in daily fantasy and season-long formats with daily changes if Turner misses additional action.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Nears double-double Monday

    Smith had 15 points (6-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and three blocks over 28 minutes during Monday's 112-104 victory over Golden State.

    Smith's efforts have been well above the season rate recently, and he delivered again Monday in a big win over the Warriors. Smith has been particularly effective as a rim protector recently, registering seven blocks over the last three games. If he continues to produce near that level, Smith could find his way into some fantasy lineups.

  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: Flirts with double-double

    Hield supplied 17 points (6-19 FG, 4-13 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, five assists and one steal in 40 minutes during Monday's 112-104 win over the Warriors.

    Hield's shooting performance was only so-so, but his shot volume and secondary numbers got him to a respectable fantasy total. Monday's stat line represented a second excellent result after faltering against the Jazz last week.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: FInally lands starting role

    Mathurin racked up 14 points (4-16 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 6-8 FT), two rebounds and one assist over 40 minutes during Monday's 112-104 victory over the Warriors.

    The rookie has served as an efficient sixth man in Indiana's offense, and he finally got his opportunity to join the starting five amid the Pacers' numerous absences. While this move is probably temporary, Mathurin still has considerable fantasy value off the bench, averaging 18.3 points and 3.8 rebounds through 24 games.

    ... See More ... See Less
  • Pacers' Andrew Nembhard: Masterful performance in win

    Nembhard registered 31 points (13-21 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 0-1 FT), eight rebounds, 13 assists and one steal in 41 minutes during Monday's 112-104 victory over Golden State.

    The 2022 second-round pick was on fire Monday and was also effective as a ball distributor, netting a season-high 13 assists. His production uptick is directly tied to Tyrese Haliburton's (groin) absence, so while we should see encouraging stat lines for Nembhard in relief, his numbers will drop back to earth when Haliburton returns, which should be sometime this week.

    ... See More ... See Less
  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Draws first NBA start

    Mathurin is starting Monday's game against the Warriors.

    Mathurin will get a chance with the first unit due to the absence of both Tyrese Haliburton (groin) and T.J. McConnell (illness). Mathurin is averaging 16.7 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.1 steals in his last seven contests off the bench.

  • Pacers' James Johnson: Listed out for Monday

    Johnson (elbow) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Warriors, Jeremiah Johnson of Bally Sports Indiana reports.

    Johnson wasn't expected to play much of a role Monday, so his absence won't be a huge loss. He'll have a chance to return to action Wednesday in Minnesota.

    ... See More ... See Less
  • Pacers' Myles Turner: Won't play Monday

    Turner (hamstring) won't play in Monday's game against Golden State, Jeremiah Johnson of Bally Sports Indiana reports.

    The center was a late addition to the injury report ahead of Monday's matchup and will miss his first game since Oct. 29 with apparent right hamstring soreness. With Turner sidelined, Isaiah Jackson will presumably garner the start and see increased run versus the Warriors.

    ... See More ... See Less
  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Out Monday

    McConnell (illness) won't play in Monday's game against Golden State, Jeremiah Johnson of Bally Sports Indiana reports.

    McConnell will miss a second straight matchup while dealing with an illness. Expect Andrew Nembhard to see increased run with McConnell sidelined again.

    ... See More ... See Less
  • Pacers' Myles Turner: Now questionable Monday

    Turner has been added to the Pacers' injury report ahead of Monday's game at Golden State due to a sore hamstring.

    It's unclear what led to Turner's inclusion on the latest injury report, but suddenly his status will be something to monitor closely over the next couple of hours. The big man is coming off of a 24-point, nine-rebound, two-assist showing in Sunday night's 116-100 loss to the Trail Blazers. If he's ultimately unable to go, Isaiah Jackson would likely be the primary beneficiary.

    ... See More ... See Less
  • Pacers' James Johnson: Listed as questionable

    Johnson is questionable for Monday's game against the Warriors due to a right elbow sprain.

    Johnson played four minutes against the Trail Blazers on Sunday but is dealing with an elbow issue prior to the second half of the back-to-back set. His status shouldn't significantly impact the Pacers' rotation.

    ... See More ... See Less
  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Questionable Monday

    McConnell (illness) is questionable for Monday's game against the Warriors.

    McConnell sat out Sunday against the Trail Blazers due to a non-COVID illness, and it's not yet clear whether he'll be able to suit up for the second half of the back-to-back set. Bennedict Mathurin and Andrew Nembhard should continue to see increased run if McConnell remains out.

    ... See More ... See Less
  • Pacers' Andrew Nembhard: Excels as starting point guard

    Nembhard contributed 16 points (7-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt), eight assists, six rebounds and one steal over 37 minutes during Sunday's 116-100 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    Nembhard had started on the wing in the Pacers' previous two games, but he moved over to point guard Sunday in place of Tyrese Haliburton (groin), who is set to remain out through Monday's game at Golden State. Though the Pacers were on the losing end of the front end of the back-to-back set, Nembhard excelled as a distributor and shot efficiently from the field. Nembhard should be a valuable streaming option while Haliburton is out, though he could lose out on some ball-handling responsibilities if T.J. McConnell (illness) is able to return for Monday's contest.
