    Justin Holiday will move into the starting power forward position for the Pacers against the Sixers on Saturday.

    Holiday comes into the starting lineup after the Pacers were left without Malcolm Brogdon (neck) and Domantas Sabonis (plantar fasciitis). Certainly not known for his all-around fantasy game, Holiday finds himself in a nice situation and could be a sneaky source of steals and 3-pointers should you be able to find room for him in your fantasy team.

    Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Domantas Sabonis is dealing with a "significant" foot injury, and will be leaving the bubble to see a specialist for treatment.

    Sabonis had been dealing with plantar fasciitis that had kept him out for about a week, but the diagnosis must have seriously worsened to force his exit from the Orlando bubble. He'll be forced to quarantine before he is able to reappear in games for the Pacers. We need to learn more about the situation, but the cryptic tweet from Wojnarowski is a serious cause for concern. For however long Sabonis is absent the Pacers will turn to Myles Turner (calf), who should receive a significant boost for as long as Sabonis is out. The team will also shift more minutes to Goga Bitadze (knee), and scoring opportunities will pour into TJ Warren and Malcolm Brogdon. JaKarr Sampson started the first scrimmage and has a fair shot at the starting slot when the games matter, but we could also see minutes heading towards Doug McDermott and TJ Leaf.

    Myles Turner will sit out Thursday's scrimmage with a calf injury.

    Turner has calf soreness and will sit out today's scrimmage as a precaution as the Pacers get ready for the resumption of the season. Domantas Sabonis (foot) and Goga Bitadze (knee) will also sit which means the Pacers are down to T.J. Leaf at the center spot.

    Myles Turner was limited in practice on Wednesday with calf soreness.

    This is a step in the right direction for Turner as he sat out the entirety of Tuesday's practice with the injury. Expect Turner to be ready for action once the Pacers play meaningful games on August 1 and he could see a larger share of the workload in the frontcourt if Domantas Sabonis (plantar fasciitis) has to miss time.

    Domantas Sabonis is suffering from plantar fasciitis and is considered day-to-day.

    It is positive news that the Pacers believe that Sabonis can heal in the matter of days as opposed to weeks. It is still unknown if he will be able to suit up for the Pacers' first contest on August 1 as it was also reported that Sabonis has not even touched a basketball for six days. Continue to monitor as we will learn more when he is able to participate in some portion of practice. More news should come by the end of the week.

    Domantas Sabonis has been unable to put weight on his foot over the last few days and has been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis.

    Nate McMillan delivered the news to reporters on Monday and said that Sabonis will miss the next few days of practice at a minimum. While it's unknown whether the issue will cause him to miss game action, Doug McDermott could be in line for more minutes.

    Domantas Sabonis is dealing with soft-tissue foot pain, which is limiting his ability to participate in practice at this time.

    Sabonis has missed the past two practices and is day-to-day as he works his way back into playing shape after the league-wide shutdown put a stop to his top-50 campaign. The Pacers will be counting on him to serve as the hub of their offense when play resumes, and in all likelihood they are just making sure he is ready for when the real games begin. Just monitor the situation in case the foot issue gets worse.

    Domantas Sabonis took his game to another level in 2019-20, registering an across the board improvement, allowing him to emerge as the Pacers' best player in fantasy as a top-50 player in 8/9-cat per game value and a top-30 player in total value in both formats.

    Sabonis proved that his promising game was legit and took it up several notches. He was a double-double machine, recording averages of 18.5 PPG, 12.4 RPG and 5.0 APG on .541 shooting from the field. The second-year big man proved to be an amazing facilitator in the post with his five dimes per night. It is worth noting, however, that he made this jump while Victor Oladipo was injured for most of the season and Malcolm Brogdon dealt with a myriad of injuries.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Domantas Sabonis recorded a double-double in the Pacers' 108-102 victory over the Bulls on Friday, putting up 24 points, 12 rebounds and three assists in 36 minutes.

    His value has dropped a couple of rounds during the back half of the season but he's still a fantasy all-star most nights. Keep running him out there in all formats.

    Domantas Sabonis had another double-double on Wednesday night, picking up 15 points (6-16 FG, 1-2 3PT), 10 rebounds and seven assists but did yield six turnovers.

    Sabonis seems to be settling in nicely around the top-50 mark on the season. It'd be nice to see more defensive stats and fewer turnovers in the next contest, but there's nothing to be worried about here.

    Domantas Sabonis stuffed the stat sheet on Monday with 14 points, 11 rebounds, five dimes, a steal and a block.

    Sabonis got his usual double-double and added defensive stats for more flavor. He's rolling right now and has had no problems putting up value alongside Myles Turner.

    Domantas Sabonis picked up yet another double-double on the season with 20 points, 11 rebounds and four assists in Thursday's close win over the Blazers.

    Sabonis is an All-Star and that's all there is to it. He contributes every night and should continue to do so as the Pacers make a charge for home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.
