November 19, 2018, 11:49 amIke Anigbogu - C - Indiana Pacers
The Pacers have announce they have assigned Ike Anigbogu to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.
The center has barely sniffed the court for the Pacers this season and is taking his fourth trip back to the G-League. There is no reason to have any shares of Anigbogu in even the deepest of leagues.

Victor Oladipo (knee) has been ruled out of Monday's game versus the Jazz.
Oladipo has been dealing with some knee soreness over the past week and was forced to exit Saturday's game early due to it. Oladipo said the issue is not a serious one and doesn't expect a lengthy absence. Look for Oladipo's massive usage to be distributed amongst the starters, while Tyreke Evans becomes an attractive DFS option.

November 18, 2018, 4:19 pmVictor Oladipo - G - Indiana Pacers
Victor Oladipo (knee) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Jazz.
Oladipo was a game-time call for Saturday and left about five minutes in after taking a spill on the baseline. The Pacers can't risk anything with their franchise centerpiece so he probably won't be back until the team is sure he's 100 percent. It leaves owners in a tough bind for the upcoming week. Tyreke Evans had one great game and followed it up with a disappointing line on Saturday, while Darren Collison was a little more assertive, Bojan Bogdanovic led the team in scoring and Aaron Holiday cracked the rotation. If you're picking up anybody it's Evans (Collison and Bogdanovic should probably be owned already) but it's not a great spot for newfound value.

November 17, 2018, 10:23 pmAaron Holiday - G - Indiana Pacers
Aaron Holiday played 15 minutes on Saturday and chipped in 12 points, three rebounds, three triples and two dimes.
Holiday was able to make an impact in limited minutes and could be in for some extra run if Victor Oladipo, who left the game early in the first quarter with a sore leg, misses games. Tyreke Evans struggled with his shot in this one, making just 4-of-12 from the field to finish with 11 points, two boards and two threes. Holiday is a potential deep-league add if he earns steady minutes.
November 17, 2018, 10:18 pmDomantas Sabonis - F - Indiana Pacers
Domantas Sabonis did some good work on the glass on Saturday as he recorded a season-high 16 rebounds that came with nine points, six assists, one steal and one blocked shot.
He tied his career-high with those 16 rebounds and Sabonis has been a reliable source of rebounding, field goal percentage (.684), and assists this season.
November 17, 2018, 10:14 pmMyles Turner - F/C - Indiana Pacers
Myles Turner took advantage of a good matchup against the Hawks frontcourt on Saturday and delivered 10 points, 11 boards, two 3-pointers, two assists and three blocks.
Take this game with a grain of salt as the Hawks defense tends to make opposing players look better than they actually are on a regular basis. Turner made just 4-of-12 shots from the field, which ended souring an otherwise solid performance. He's still more of a low-end big man at the moment and has seen his stock fall dramatically early this season.
November 17, 2018, 10:11 pmBojan Bogdanovic - F - Indiana Pacers
Bojan Bogdanovic stepped up for the injured Victor Oladipo on Saturday and anchored the Pacers' offense with his 22 points on 7-of-12 shooting, three triples and four boards.
While he does appear to be just a points-and-threes guy on the surface, Bogdanovic does not hurt your field goal percentage with his .517 shooting clip. He also went 5-for-5 from the line making this more of a solid four-cat performance than just a scoring tirade.
November 17, 2018, 7:29 pmVictor Oladipo - G - Indiana Pacers
Victor Oladipo has been ruled out for the remainder of Saturday's game against the Hawks.
This comes as no surprise as the Pacers will play it cautious with their star guard. Expect to see Tyreke Evans step up in his absence in this game.

Victor Oladipo was in clear discomfort when he asked to be subbed out of Saturday's game against the Hawks and headed to the locker room.
Oladipo was dealing with the sore knee prior to this game and it appears to be bothering him enough that it's keeping him off the floor. Hopefully, it's nothing serious but we wouldn't be surprised if the Pacers sit him in this easy matchup.

Victor Oladipo will play on Saturday despite dealing with right knee soreness.
Expect the Pacers to take it easy on Oladipo tonight, especially if they can get out to a big lead against the Hawks. He's been playing through knee soreness lately and it hasn't slowed him down at all, so fantasy owners can continue to expect big things from the young star.

November 17, 2018, 5:25 pmVictor Oladipo - G - Indiana Pacers
Victor Oladipo is a game-time decision on Saturday and the Pacers will see how his sore knee feels after pregame warmups before making a decision.
If Oladipo can't play tonight we'll see Tyreke Evans reprise his role from last season, and he's sure to be a popular DFS guy tonight coming off his best game of the year. Bojan Bogdanovic might get more shots and we'll likely see the Pacers use multi-PG groups.

Victor Oladipo is questionable for Saturday's game because of a sore right knee.
Oladipo shot just 3-of-12 last night, so perhaps this explains his subpar performance. Indiana draws the Hawks tonight, so they might feel comfortable giving Dipo the night off to heal up. Tyreke Evans had his best game of the season last night and would be the big winner if Oladipo isn't able to play.

November 16, 2018, 9:47 pmMyles Turner - F/C - Indiana Pacers
Myles Turner was productive for the Pacers on defense on Friday as he tallied 12 points, seven boards, four assists, one trey, one steal and three blocks.
His cash counters were a welcome sight but his line was marred by his inefficient scoring from the field as the big man went 4-for-11 from there. He's on the bubble as top-100 guy right now and has largely disappointed managers who held a candle for a potential bounce-back campaign from him in 2018-19.
November 16, 2018, 9:44 pmDomantas Sabonis - F - Indiana Pacers
Domantas Sabonis went 7-for-10 from the field and 1-for-1 from the line to finish Friday's game with 15 points, 12 rebounds and three asissts.
Sabonis is at it again, recording his third double-double performance in his last five games. He continues to outperform Myles Turner every once in a while and is a solid bet to finish the season with mid-round value, making him one of the better sleeper picks of 2018-19.
November 16, 2018, 9:40 pmVictor Oladipo - G - Indiana Pacers
Victor Oladipo struggled with his shot on Friday as he was limited to scoring eight points on 3-of-12 shooting with four rebounds, five dimes, two treys and one blocked shot.
Oladipo's struggles were mitigated by the performance of the Pacers' bench which allowed them to still come away with the win. Dipo is still a top-25 player in 9-cat at the moment with a solid floor so owners need not worry too much about this poor showing.
