    Domantas Sabonis worked the Suns in a 112-87 win on Wednesday, tallying 24 points on 8-of-11 shooting from the field and the line, adding 13 rebounds, one block and four dimes.

    Sabonis has had 34 double-doubles this season, which is sick, considering he tallied 30 in the whole of 2018-19. He's been a beast and looks to be a strong candidate to finish the season flirting with top-25 value on and off.

    Domantas Sabonis scored 10 points on 5-of-12 shooting with eight boards and two assists on Monday.

    Considering how this game went, Sabonis' night could have been much worse. His stat line was on the upper end of the spectrum for the Pacers which is all you need to know about this match.

    Domantas Sabonis had a great performance to lead the Pacers to victory over the Nuggets, notching 22 points (10-of-16 FG), 15 rebounds, 10 assists and five turnovers.

    The left knee soreness does not appear to be much of a factor right now for Sabonis, and it is a relief to see a swift bounce-back from the stinker he had against the Wolves on Friday. He played nearly 41 minutes against Nikola Jokic in this one and put up a nice imitation of the triple-double performances we've come to expect from the Serbian. Keep deploying Sabonis with confidence.

    In a recent interview, Domantas Sabonis expanded on earlier reports from this week that he could not hurt his left knee anymore by playing through the pain.

    “I’ve been told it’s a bone bruise, so there’s swelling in the bone that all doctors say it can’t get worse unless you get hit in that same spot,” he said. “It’s the same thing if I get hit in my healthy knee,” Sabonis said, pointing to his right knee. “There’s the same chance. It’s not a muscle or anything, so by doing more stuff, you can’t technically get it worse.” He said he met with team doctors and two outside specialists, all of whom reiterated that playing on the knee would not damage it anymore, beyond normal ways one could injure their knee. The clarity helps alleviate some concerns about him playing through potential structural damage, though it remains to be seen how playing through constant pain will effect him on a game-to-game basis.

    Domantas Sabonis finally had an off game this season, finishing with eight points, five rebounds, four assists, a block, five turnovers and five fouls in 26 minutes on Friday night.

    Sabonis just couldn't get things going and picked up three fouls relatively quickly. Considering his elite production all season long, it's easy to overlook this one. A night of light minutes may not even be a bad thing considering his recent bout with left knee soreness — that's said to be an external bruise that simply hurts, as the Pacers have been adamant that Sabonis playing through it is not a risk for further injury.

    Domantas Sabonis had a huge night for the Pacers, dropping 29 points (13-for-17 from the field) and tacking on 13 rebounds, six assists, a steal and a block on Wednesday night.

    Sabonis has dealt with the injury bug recently, but shows that when he takes the court, he has the ability to dominate. Currently a fourth-round value, Sabonis is well outplaying his ADP and looks the be the favored frontcourt option when healthy.

    According to head coach Nate McMillan, Domantas Sabonis (sore left knee) will play and start on Wednesday vs. the Wolves

    Sabonis has been dealing with some knee pain for some time but has only missed one game as a result. He should be locked in lineups across formats but will likely match up against defensive stalwart, Robert Covington, on Wednesday.

    Domantas Sabonis (sore left knee) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Wolves.

    Earlier on Tuesday, coach Nate McMillan said that Sabonis would continue to play through the pain with no restrictions as he can't hurt the knee any further, so it seems likely that the big man will suit up despite the questionable tag. Check back in for another update on Wednesday.

    Myles Turner double-doubled with 14 points on 4-of-10 shooting, 10 rebounds, one assist, one triple and three blocks in 33 minutes in a home win over the Sixers on Monday.

    Turner has had mild ups and down this season, and he's currently having a good stretch as the number 45 player in 9-cat over the past month. Domantas Sabonis also double-doubled, but did it on just 3-of-12 shooting, providing 10 points, 16 rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes.

    Domantas Sabonis (sore left knee) will start Monday's game against the Sixers.

    Sabonis had been listed as questionable previously. This dampens any value Goga Bitadze would have had in this game. Sabonis has delivered top-50 value so far.

    Domantas Sabonis (sore left knee) didn't practice on Sunday and is being listed as questionable for Monday.

    Sabonis' knee soreness became a cause for alarm on Saturday when it was announced that he'd undergo an MRI, the results of which have yet to be made public. It was said that the testing was merely precautionary in nature, but these sorts of tests are only performed as last resorts so this news is worth monitoring. If he missed the game, Goga Bitadze may rejoin the rotation or perhaps Jakarr Sampson will feature in small ball lineups. Regardless, your best bet is to tune into the injury reports over the next day.

    Domantas Sabonis (sore left knee) is scheduled to undergo MRI on Saturday.

    J. Michael adds Sabonis' MRI appears to be strictly precautionary and Sabonis himself thinks he will be able to play on Monday so no reason to be overly concerned but one should check back another update today anyway. Sabonis was held out on Friday which led to Myles Turner having his best game of the season with 27 points and 14 rebounds. JaKarr Sampson, Goga Bitadze and Doug McDermott would all soak up Sabonis' minutes if he does end up missing more time.

    The Pacers have reversed course and will not have Domantas Sabonis (sore left knee) available on Friday.

    Alas. Sabonis has been able to play through his injuries for the most part but there's nothing wrong with resting him against the Bulls. Goga Bitadze should be able to get back in the mix and is a deep-league stream for blocks as a result.

    Domantas Sabonis (sore left knee) will suit up for Friday's matchup with the Bulls.

    Sabonis played through the ailment to great effect against Miami on Wednesday, so fantasy GMs just have to hope for more of the same. The big man has been dynamite this season and is looking like one of the better middle-round picks from draft season.
