    Fun Facts for the season

    -The Pacers are on track to make the playoffs for the fifth consecutive season but have not made it out of the first round since the 2014 playoffs when Paul George, David West, Roy Hibbert, George Hill and Lance Stephenson lost to the “Heatles” in the 2014 Eastern Conference Finals

    -Pacers fans only got to see the formidable starting lineup of Malcolm Brogdon (17 missed games), Victor Oladipo (52 missed games), Domantas Sabonis (3 missed games), Myles Turner (10 missed games) and T.J. Warren (4 missed games) five times this season due to several injuries. However, all of these players are under contract for next season so fans will hopefully get to see how their starters perform when fully healthy.

    -In his first season in an expanded role with the Pacers, Malcolm Brogdon got off to a torrid start as he produced 3rd/3rd round per game value until December 13 (22 games, November 15th game removed due to in-game injury that limited him to just nine minutes of action) while Brogdon’s value plummeted to 14th/17th round per-game value since December 14 (26 games) as the guard wore down as the season went along and saw his production slip in almost every statistical category

    -Those who drafted Victor Oladipo and held on to him for the entire season were extremely disappointed as the All-Star guard appeared to round into form right when the league was suspended as his last game on March 10 was reminiscent of his 2018-19 performance when he was a 5th/5th round per-game value. In his first 12 games back from a knee injury, Oladipo was clearly still shaking off the rust as he was returning 21st/27th round per-game value.

    -After three consecutive seasons in which Myles Turner ranked ahead of Domantas Sabonis in fantasy value in 8/9-cat formats, Sabonis changed the narrative in 2019-20 as he led the entire team in fantasy value.

    -T.J. Warren had excellent field goal and free throw percentage numbers this season (.529 from the field and .812 from the line) and that can help explain how the forward was ranked four-to-five rounds higher in category leagues than he was in points formats
