With less than 10 games remaining in the schedule, the Pacers’ grip on a playoff spot is precarious and injuries to Al Jefferson, Glenn Robinson III, and Rodney Stuckey have forced them to change things up a bit.
Monta Ellis, 27.1 minutes per game in his last four, is starting to see more time and is averaging 11.0 points over that stretch. He perhaps benefits the most with all of the injury problems the Pacers are having. He provides a solid veteran presence for Nate McMillan’s team and from a fantasy perspective most of his value in threes and steals. If you need help in those categories, he’s worth a look. He’s only owned in 50 percent of Yahoo leagues at the moment, so you could potentially pick him up for a boost.
