The Pacers didn't catch the same attention that the other top teams in the East did, but had the looks of a team that could make some noise before an unfortunate injury to their star.…

Cory Joseph led the Pacers in scoring with 14 points on 5-for-9 shooting with two boards and an assist in Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Celtics.
Joseph, who has never missed the playoffs in his entire career, seemed like the only Pacer who was mildly ready to play in this one. He was the only player to shoot above 50% (other than Aaron Holiday's 1-for-1). The Pacers are going to have a rough time if Joseph is their leading scorer going forward.

Cory Joseph played 21 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's close win over the Hawks, finishing with six points, two assists and two steals.
Many expected Joseph to be a guy who could see more opportunity after Victor Oladpio left a star shaped hole in the Pacers’ backcourt following his injury. Interestingly enough though, the veteran guard saw no additional playing time and had a noticeable drop in fantasy value after Oladpio was out of the lineup, going from being a top-160 player in 9-cat and 8-cat to being outside the top-200 in value in the games since the injury. He will be a free agent this offseason, but even if he finds a new home, we don’t see him making much of a fantasy impact.

Cory Joseph had seven points, eight assists, four rebounds and one steal on Friday night.
Joseph got the start with Darren Collison out and didn't do much other than the assists. It was a rough night overall for the Pacers, but Nate McMillan mentioned they may rest starters moving forward which could mean added opportunities for Joseph in the final games.
April 5, 2019, 6:10 pmDarren Collison - G - Indiana Pacers
Darren Collison (sore groin) will not play on Friday vs. the Celtics while Wes Matthews (right hamstring strain) will be available to play.
Cory Joseph is looking at a start with Collison out but he’s not the best option considering the Celtics remain one of the best NBA defenses.

Cory Joseph had 12 assists to go along with six rebounds, six points, a steal, and a turnover in Wednesday's road win against the Pistons.
Joseph started at PG for the Pacers with both Darren Collison and Wes Matthews sitting this one out. Joseph has had trouble scoring the ball this season, but he was able to pad the counting stats tonight. Collison may return for Friday's big matchup against the Celtics, but if he should sit, Joseph is likely to get another start.

Cory Joseph will start on Monday vs. the Pistons.
Joseph is starting next to Tyreke Evans due to both Darren Collison (groin) and Wesley Matthews (hamstring) being out. He'll obviously handle the ball more and get more opportunity with those two out and should serve as an interesting pickup if you need some help at the PG position.

Cory Joseph finished Wednesday's loss scoreless in 25 minutes, missing all four of his shots and finishing with four rebounds and three assists.
Joseph was a decent low-end point guard while Darren Collison was out but can be downgraded to deep-league asset once again.
March 22, 2019, 12:56 amCory Joseph - G - Indiana Pacers
Cory Joseph scored two points on 1-of-7 shooting while adding two rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block.
Joseph didn't get anything going on offense, but none of the Pacers' starters outside of Thaddeus Young could. The key stats to look at here are the steals and dimes. If Collison misses more time, Joseph is a low-end streamer for dimes and swipes.

Cory Joseph will remain in the starting lineup against the Warriors on Thursday.
Joseph played just 20 minutes as the starter on Tuesday against the Clippers, as he was overshadowed by Tyreke Evans' big game. Evans is the preferred play between the two, but Joseph is still worth a look as he has averaged two steals over the last two weeks, and is capable of playing playing better than he has recently.

Cory Joseph claimed four steals and had five points, four assists and one 3-pointer over 20 minutes in a start on Tuesday.
Joseph took over for Darren Collison (right quad contusion) tonight and it went about how it usually goes for CoJo: underwhelmingly. Tyreke Evans was the ball-handler that came up big as he went for 19 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in 29 minutes.
March 1, 2019, 3:50 pmTyreke Evans - G - Indiana Pacers
Tyreke Evans (food poisoning) questionable for Saturday vs. the Magic.
Evans has missed the last two games to food poisoning and if he can’t suit up on Saturday, look for Cory Joseph to assume a larger role off the bench.
February 9, 2019, 9:12 pmCory Joseph - G - Indiana Pacers
Cory Joseph was stellar in 31 minutes off the bench for the Pacers in Saturday's win over the Cavs with 10 points (5-of-7 shooting), nine rebounds, 10 dimes and one steal.
The game was under control early so CoJo got some extra burn tonight. It was also notable that he outplayed Tyreke Evans (six points, seven rebounds, three assists, 17 minutes) in this one. Joseph has managed to stay just outside the top-150 in 9-cat on the season, so he's more of an end-of-bench guy in standard leagues at this point.
February 4, 2019, 10:24 pmCory Joseph - G - Indiana Pacers
Cory Joseph started on Monday and scored five points on 2-of-7 shooting with a 3-pointer, five rebounds, four assists and a steal.
Joseph started even with Tyreke Evans healthy and he put up a decent line in 31 minutes, but it's not enough juice for standard leagues.
