Fantasy News

  • Thaddeus Young - F - Indiana Pacers

    Thaddeus Young managed 18 points, 10 rebounds and a pair of 3-pointers in Saturday's loss to the Nuggets.

    Young continues to sail along with middle-round value and is a great glue guy for most fantasy rosters. The highlight of the night was probably Thad giving Tony Brothers a pat on the butt after his quick-trigger double technical on Nikola Jokic. Indiana's other pillar of consistency, Bojan Bogdanovic, tallied 16 points and missed a good look at a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

  • Domantas Sabonis - F - Indiana Pacers

    Domantas Sabonis finished Saturday's tight loss with 16 points, seven rebounds, two assists and a steal.

    Sabonis hit 6-of-10 shots but just 4-of-8 free throws. He's got two nice games in a row after two substandard games in returning from a left ankle sprain, so Sabonis officially looks safe to get back into lineups. Myles Turner had 15 points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 36 minutes. It's a great sign that a line like that has become ho-hum.

  • Tyreke Evans - G - Indiana Pacers

    Tyreke Evans returned from a three-game absence (two personal, one for an illness) on Saturday night and posted five points, five rebounds and three assists in 16 minutes off the bench.

    Even with Wesley Matthews prone to some shooting funks (7-5-5 on 2-of-5 shooting tonight), Evans has almost no shot at taking on a role that would beget serious fantasy value.

  • Tyreke Evans - G - Indiana Pacers

    Tyreke Evans (personal) is available to play against the Nuggets on Saturday night.

    Aaron Holiday gets his minutes bumped here but you can still leave Evans on the wire since he has no fantasy impact.

  • Tyreke Evans - G - Indiana Pacers

    Tyreke Evans (personal) has returned to the Pacers and will play on Saturday night.

    Evans' return should bump Aaron Holiday from the rotation. There's no fantasy impact.

  • Tyreke Evans - G - Indiana Pacers

    Tyreke Evans (personal) is expected to play on Saturday vs. the Nuggets.

    Evans hasn't been able to get anything going this season even with Victor Olapido (knee) out until next year. He can be left on the wire.

  • Wesley Matthews - G/F - Indiana Pacers

    Wes Matthews scored 16 points, hit four triples and turned the ball over four times on Thursday night.

    We're interested in Matthews for the outside shooting that he brings. The loss of Victor Oladipo has opened up a lot of scoring opportunities for the Pacers' wings, and Matthews should have free reign to jack up threes the rest of the way.

  • Myles Turner - F/C - Indiana Pacers

    Myles Turner had a quiet night with just 10 points, six rebounds and one blocked shot on Thursday night against the Thunder.

    This is the game we fear from Turner where the offense is lacking (as it is maybe too often) and we don't even get to bank on the defensive side of the ball. This should just be a blip on the radar as a top-25 player. Back to the office in the next one.

  • Bojan Bogdanovic - F - Indiana Pacers

    Bojan Bogdanovic had a decent line on Thursday night with 23 points, four rebounds and five assists.

    Bogdanovic has been a very reliable scorer for this Pacers squad. The defensive stats won't be there but this is some fairly consistent production from a solid all-around NBA player. He should be a lock as a must-start option the rest of the way.

  • Domantas Sabonis - F - Indiana Pacers

    Domantas Sabonis led the Pacers with 26 points and seven boards off the bench in a win over the Thunder on Thursday night.

    Sabonis scored efficiently and well in this game as the Pacers rallied to a victory. The profile on Sabonis remains the same. He can be an efficient producer of some scoring and rebounds, just don't get too excited for a wide array of stats.

  • Tyreke Evans - G - Indiana Pacers

    Tyreke Evans (personal) will not be in uniform on Thursday against the Thunder.

    Coach Nate McMillan declined to elaborate on the situation, but we do know that Evans will not be suiting up for at least one more game. Cory Joseph and Aaron Holiday should continue to see additional playing time while Evans is out.

  • Tyreke Evans - G - Indiana Pacers

    Tyreke Evans (personal) is doubtful for Thursday's game against the Thunder.

    Evans missed Tuesday's win for personal reasons as well. We hope that everything is alright with his family. Aaron Holiday should see additional playing time for as long as Evans is away.

  • Myles Turner - F/C - Indiana Pacers

    Myles Turner filled up the box score in Tuesday's 103-98 home victory over the Knicks despite 5-of-15 shooting from the field, producing 15 points, nine rebounds, four assists, two steals, two blocks and two threes over 37 minutes.

    Field goal percentage aside, this was a great game for teams relying on Turner. He's been producing as a second-round player for the last two months.

  • Bojan Bogdanovic - F - Indiana Pacers

    Bojan Bogdanovic dropped another 24 points on 9-of-16 field goals in Tuesday's win over the Knicks, including three triples, four boards and two dimes in 36 minutes.

    Tyreke Evans missed this game, but this has been a scoring trend for quite a while now. Bogdanovic is averaging over 22 points per game for the past month. He's a rare source of points and threes that also hits around 50 percent of his shots.
