  • Domantas Sabonis

    Domantas Sabonis posted 28 points (13-of-23 FG, 0-for-2 3PT), nine rebounds and eight assists in a loss to the Celtics on Tuesday.

    Sabonis is as steady as they come, ranking inside the top-50 on the year. He has been a key cog for the Pacers' front court all season long and has been healthy essentially the whole year.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo finished with a season-high 27 points (9-of-16 FG, 5-of-7 3 PT), seven rebounds and four assists in 28 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Celtics.

    Remarkably, this was the first time he cracked the 20-point mark this year (13 games). Oladipo has been decent over the last two weeks, ranking inside the top-75. He really inside a preferable starting point guard option for fantasy managers but if he's all you have, you're going to have to roll with him.

  • TJ Warren
    SF, Indiana Pacers

    TJ Warren racked up 22 points (9-of-18 FG, 1-of-2 3PT) and five rebounds in 24 minutes of action on Tuesday as the Pacers fell to Celtics 114-111.

    He has snuck his way into the top-30 over the last two months and can safely deployed in fantasy lineups. He had his leg stitched up last week but seems to be over that completely, posting two productive lines since missing a game with the injury.

  • Myles Turner
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Myles Turner was efficient in a loss to the Celtics on Tuesday, finishing with 16 points (7-for-11 FG), eight rebounds and four blocks in 36 minutes.

    Myles Turner is very comparable to Rudy Gobert in that they both do phenomenal on the defensive end but lack a fully polished offensive game. Turner actually averages more blocks than Gobert, sitting at 3.3 BPG over the last two weeks compared to Gobert's 2.7 BPG. Turner is inside the top-50 in his last 24 games. He is a steady contributor, leave him in your lineups.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo (sore right knee) will be available to play against the Celtics on Tuesday.

    This will be Oladipo's third straight game as he looks to finish the season off strong. The Pacers are going to need even more production than they thought from Oladipo with Malcolm Brogdon week-to-week and Jeremy Lamb out for the season. Oladipo has an immense upside as long as he can stay on the court and get comfortable.

  • Doug McDermott

    Doug McDermott will miss his third straight game on Tuesday as he is battling a sore right big toe.

    McDermott was at least able to get some shots up this morning so he should be back soon. With Malcolm Brogdon sidelined and Victor Oladipo still questionable, the Pacers will have to rely more on the Holiday brothers.

  • Domantas Sabonis

    Domantas Sabonis tweaked his foot and his ankle against the Mavs on Sunday but he has no lingering effects and he is expected to play against the Celtics on Tuesday.

    This is great news for a team that will be missing Malcolm Brogdon and Doug McDermott while Victor Oladipo remains questionable. Sabonis has been battling a few injuries this year but that hasn’t kept him from returning top-50 value for fantasy owners and he should continue to thrive in a starting role.

  • Doug McDermott

    Doug McDermott (right big toe soreness) is doubtful for Tuesday's matchup vs. the Celtics.

    McDermott will likely miss a third straight game on Tuesday. He is a three-point specialist off the bench for the Pacers and is not relevant in standard leagues. Justin Holiday and Edmond Sumner will continue to see additional minutes with McDermott sidelined.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo (sore right knee) is officially listed as questionable heading into Tuesday's tilt vs. the Celtics.

    Oladipo has been able to suit up for the Pacers' last two contests despite being listed as questionable ahead of time. The same can be assumed for Tuesday's game barring any setback. Oladipo has struggled this season but is worth rostering across all formats in the hopes that he can put it all together over the last month of the season. Monitor the wire as we will learn more about Dipo's availability ahead of tip-off tomorrow.

    C, Indiana Pacers

    Domantas Sabonis beat up the Mavs on Sunday for 20 points (8-of-13 FG), 17 rebounds, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Sabonis continues to do what he does best, pile up points and rebounds on sturdy percentages. His free-throw shooting has slid and that his dragging down his overall value, but he is still a top-50 player that you can rely upon every night of the season.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Despite dealing with right knee soreness, Victor Oladipo played in his second straight game on Sunday vs. the Mavs, going for 16 points, seven assists, four rebounds and one block.

    Oladipo had some warts with 6-of-18 shooting, no 3-pointers, zero steals and three turnovers, but he made some key plays to win this game and the Pacers will turn to him as a creator while Malcolm Brogdon is out. While Oladipo's shooting is a cause for concern, the picture is looking more promising as he attempts to regain his prior form.

  • Myles Turner
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Myles Turner was great against the Mavs on Sunday, posting 16 points (6-of-9 FG), 13 rebounds, two 3-pointers, three blocks and two steals.

    Turner has put together seven consecutive games with at least two blocks, and he is a solid rebounder and 3-pointer shooter. It is not always pretty when Turner goes quiet as a scorer, but he remains a very nice mid-round value that has the potential to do even more when he takes on a larger offensive role. While he went back to the locker room he appears to be just fine for the Pacers' next game on Tuesday with the Celtics.

  • TJ Warren
    SF, Indiana Pacers

    TJ Warren (left leg laceration/stitches) returned from a one-game absence on Sunday against the Mavs, putting together 16 points (7-of-13 FG), eight rebounds and one block.

    Warren had his hands full trying to defend Luka Doncic, and Warren simply lacks the defensive principals to avoid falling for Doncic's bag of tricks. Defensive chops aside, Warren was still able to get his own and appeared to be fully recovered from the injury. You can continue relying on his mid-round production. Justin Holiday was solid off the bench with 14 points and four 3-pointers and can serve as a useful streamer in standard leagues.

    Myles Turner was able to re-enter Sunday's game during the second quarter against the Mavs.

    It's good to see Turner was quickly able to return to action. It is still a mystery as to why he went back into the locker room, we'll provide an update after the game once we've learned more.

  • Myles Turner
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Myles Turner went to the locker room for an unknown reason on Sunday at the end of the first quarter against the Mavs.

    It's not clear why Turner needed to leave the bench, but we'll keep an eye on it and provide further information down the line. He has been playing better lately, blocking shots with more regularity than he had been earlier in the season. Hopefully, this is a quick fix.
