  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo (back) has been upgraded from doubtful to questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Raptors.

    Oladipo is nursing a sore back and it appears to be improving. Check back closer to tip off to see if he's able to give it a go.

  • Edmond Sumner
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Edmond Sumner (sore left hip) is questionable to play vs. the Raptors on Sunday.

    With Sumner out, T.J. McConnell and Aaron Holiday should soak up the extra minutes at the backup PG spot.

    Victor Oladipo (sore back) is doubtful to play on Sunday against the Raptors.

    Oladipo left Friday's game and is still feeling some tightness, so the Pacers will probably give him all the time he needs to get right. Look for everyone to get more touches and shots with Dipo on the shelf, though Jeremy Lamb figures to be the biggest winner.

  • Domantas Sabonis
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Domantas Sabonis notched 24 points (8-for-16 shooting), 13 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 37 minutes as the Pacers beat the Knicks 106-98.

    Sabonis is a safe bet for points, rebounds and assists almost every night and Friday was no different. While some choose to nitpick at the lack of threes and defense, just enjoy the consistent baseline of counting stats he gives you if he's on your roster.

  • TJ Warren
    SF, Indiana Pacers

    T.J. Warren scored 27 points (10-for-21 shooting), eight rebounds, three assists, two triples, two steals and a block across 37 minutes on Friday.

    Warren was questionable to play in this one but came through with a huge performance. There's a chance Victor Oladipo cramps Warren's style a bit but so far so good. Keep him rolling if healthy.

  • Malcolm Brogdon
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Malcolm Brogdon scored 11 points (4-for-14 shooting), eight rebounds, six assists and a steal across 34 minutes on Friday.

    It was an ugly night from the field for Brogdon but he filled the stat sheet up in other areas salvaging a solid fantasy line. It remains to be seen if the extended time off during the all star break will help him capture his early-season form.

  • Doug McDermott
    SF, Indiana Pacers

    Doug McDermott went 4-for-6 in 14 minutes off the bench on Friday, finishing with 14 points and two triples.

    McDermott has one role on this team and that is to shoot threes, which he did quite efficiently on Friday night. Leave him on the wire unless you need threes in a deep league.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo (sore back) left Friday's game against the Knicks with concerns over his back.

    This is not good news. Oladipo has not looked particularly healthy since returning from injury in late January. That injury, however, was to his right knee, so the news about his back is not a welcome sight. An update should be provided after the game.

  • TJ Warren
    SF, Indiana Pacers

    TJ Warren's sore back will not stop him from taking the floor on Friday against the Knicks.

    Many have been skeptical that Warren could maintain mid-round value all season for the Pacers, but everyone is healthy around him and he continues to put up strong top-50 production. Victor Oladipo could spoil this in a few weeks, but it has not happened yet, and at this point, you should feel okay riding Warren all the way to the end of the season.

  • Edmond Sumner
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Edmond Sumner (sore hip) is questionable to face the Knicks on Friday.

    Sumner started the year as Indiana's backup PG but a right hand fracture put him at the back of the line. Healthy or otherwise, Sumner isn't much of a fantasy asset these days.

  • TJ Warren
    SF, Indiana Pacers

    The Pacers are listing TJ Warren (sore back) as questionable for Friday's game.

    Warren was healthy heading into the break, and on a nice little run to boot. Victor Oladipo hasn't been good enough to start affecting Warren's offensive output just yet but that time will come. He should still hold middle-round value either way. If he's unable to play tomorrow, look for Doug McDermott to be the big beneficiary.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo will no longer be subject to a minutes restriction, but still he will not play back-to-back contests.

    Nate McMillan announced the change to reporters on Wednesday. Oladipo has averaged 11.1 points and 2.9 assists in 25.0 minutes per game so far. Just be prepared for the days of rest when the Pacers have a heavy schedule.

  • Domantas Sabonis
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Domantas Sabonis had an off night on Wednesday, uncharacteristically going 4-for-15 from the field and 7-of-10 from the line for 15 points, eight rebounds and four assists.

    This was just a hiccup, a slight correction. There's no reason to think Sabonis won't be able to bounce back and finish the season strong.

  • Malcolm Brogdon
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Malcolm Brogdon had a sweet revenge-game win over the Bucks on Wednesday, producing 17 points (6-of-13 FG, 4-of-4 FT) with 13 assist, five rebounds and one 3-pointer.

    Brogdon is having quite the volatile season, with tonight's gem coming on the heels of a forgettable six-point performance on Monday. He's fallen outside of the top-150 (192) over the last month but is still someone who can swing his pendulum in the right direction.

  • TJ Warren
    SF, Indiana Pacers

    T.J. Warren led the Pacers to 118-111 win over the Giannis-less Bucks on Wednesday with 35 points on 16-of-19 shooting, adding seven rebounds, one triple, one assist and four steals.

    Warren, not normally known for his effort and results on the defensive end, gave his owners a pleasant surprise with those four swipes. He is more of an efficiency-based scorer and has the volumes to keep him in the top-50 ROS.
