    Doug McDermott will miss his third straight game on Tuesday as he is battling a sore right big toe.

    McDermott was at least able to get some shots up this morning so he should be back soon. With Malcolm Brogdon sidelined and Victor Oladipo still questionable, the Pacers will have to rely more on the Holiday brothers.

    Doug McDermott (right big toe soreness) is doubtful for Tuesday's matchup vs. the Celtics.

    McDermott will likely miss a third straight game on Tuesday. He is a three-point specialist off the bench for the Pacers and is not relevant in standard leagues. Justin Holiday and Edmond Sumner will continue to see additional minutes with McDermott sidelined.

    Doug McDermott (right big toe soreness) has been ruled out on Sunday.

    This will be McDermott's second straight absence. Look for Justin Holiday to pick up some extra minutes, with JaKarr Sampson possibly getting into the mix as well. Only deep-league GMs should be chasing output off the Indiana bench for now.

    Doug McDermott (sore right big toe) is doubtful for Sunday.

    McDermott also missed Friday's game with the injury. He's only a deep-league target for modest output in points and threes on a solid percentage from the field. Expect his minutes to be spread across Indiana's second unit with no clear winner in terms of playing time.

    Doug McDermott's toe injury will force him to miss Friday's game vs. the Bulls

    The Pacers will be missing some key offensive contributors in McDermott and Malcolm Brogdon. If T.J. Warren (left leg laceration/stitches) also can't play a lot of the bench will be relied upon. Justin Holiday and T.J. McConnell would receive big boosts.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo is questionable to face the Bulls on Friday as he continues to work his way back from a knee injury.

    The Pacers are currently dealing with a lot of injuries to key rotation players. Oladipo has missed the previous two games and it is now even more important for the team to get him back with Malcolm Brogdon (hip) now doubtful. Justin Holiday, Doug McDermott, T.J. McConnell and Edmond Sumner could be in line for additional opportunity if Oladipo is ruled out. It is worth noting that Doug McDermott is also questionable with a toe injury.

  • TJ Warren

    T.J. Warren (left leg laceration/stitches) is officially listed as questionable for Friday's tilt vs. the Bulls.

    Warren appeared to have injured his leg at during Wednesday's game and may be forced to miss time as a result. If Warren misses Friday's game, Doug McDermott and Justin Holiday will see an increase in minutes.

    Doug McDermott (toe) and Jakarr Sampson (hip) are both questionable ahead of Friday's matchup vs. the Bulls.

    McDermott is an efficient three-point specialist for deeper leagues but doesn't do enough outside of those categories to warrant standard league relevance. He does have appeal in 14-team leagues as a specialist for as long as Malcolm Brogdon (hip) and Victor Oladipo (knee) are out. Sampson is not relevant in fantasy circles outside of the deepest of leagues.

  • Malcolm Brogdon
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Malcolm Brogdon is scheduled to have an MRI done on the hip that he injured in Wednesday's game and is considered doubtful for Friday's contest vs. the Bulls.

    It seems highly unlikely that Brogdon will play on Friday. Expect Justin Holiday, Doug McDermott and T.J. McConnell to see additional opportunity while he remains sidelined. Holiday is the only player of the three that is worth using in standard leagues at this time.

    Doug McDermott went 4-for-6 in 14 minutes off the bench on Friday, finishing with 14 points and two triples.

    McDermott has one role on this team and that is to shoot threes, which he did quite efficiently on Friday night. Leave him on the wire unless you need threes in a deep league.

  • TJ Warren
    SF, Indiana Pacers

    T.J. Warren (concussion) is being ruled out ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Raptors.

    Warren left Sunday's game after a collision, and it looks like he will miss at least one game while he attempts to pass through the concussion protocol stages. Doug McDermott and Jeremy Lamb are in line for extra minutes while Warren is sidelined.

    Doug McDermott caught fire for the Pacers on Sunday night, making six triples en route to a 19-point performance on 7-of-11 shooting with one rebound and one assist.

    Streaky 3-point shooting specialists like McDermott are almost always worth riding out until their hot streak ends. He's making it rain over his last couple of games, so keep rocking him for a boost in that specific category.

    Doug McDermott was unconscious from distance in Friday's win, finishing with 24 points (9-for-10 shooting), six triples, two rebounds, an assist and a steal.

    Even though it's the second time in the last week McDermott has caught fire like this, don't overreact. He is simply a threes specialist and one that is clearly capable of filling it up quickly when he's feeling it like he was tonight.

    Doug McDermott caught fire down the stretch on Sunday against the Nuggets, leading the Pacers' comeback with 24 points (9-of-10 FG), six 3-pointers, two rebounds and two assists.

    This was McDermott at his finest as a sharp-shooter from long range, but we also saw the emptiness he is known for as he did barely anything beyond the 24 points and six 3-pointers. He is still just a 3-point specialist on a deep Indiana roster. He was able to snatch some minutes from Jeremy Lamb tonight thanks to his hot streak.

  • TJ Warren
    SF, Indiana Pacers

    T.J. Warren collected 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting, while tallying six rebounds, two assists and a steal on Wednesday night.

    T.J. Warren continues to shoot the ball well and at a decent volume. It was nice to see a bump in rebounds as well. His small forward counterpart, Doug McDermott was also able to capitalize in his 18 minutes of play, racking up 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting.
