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.

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.

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.

Doug McDermott came out of nowhere on Friday and erupted for 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting with a full stat line to help defeat the Bulls.
McDermott added four rebounds, two triples, two assists, one steal and one block to round out his line for the night. Wow. Yep, that was out of left field, considering McBuckets had been scoring in single digits for five straight games prior to this outburst. Leave him on the wire until he's able to string together more games like this.

Doug McDermott logged 22 minutes in Friday's win over the Kings, putting up 13 points (5-for-9 shooting), six rebounds, three triples and an assist.
It was a decently productive night for McDermott, who doesn't really factor into anything other than the deepest of leagues as a points and threes streamer. He and T.J. McConnell, who had 15 points, eight assists, two triples and a steal, were the top producers off the bench with the extra time opened up by the injury to Jeremy Lamb.

Doug McDermott chipped in 16 points while shooting 6-of-11 from the field and 3-of-4 from deep on Saturday.
McDermott caught fire in the second half against the Knicks on Saturday and has now had double digit points in three straight games. Despite this recent stretch McDermott is outside the top-200 on the season and can be left on the wire in standard-leagues.
November 16, 2019, 1:31 pmMalcolm BrogdonPG, Indiana Pacers
Malcolm Brogdon (back spasms) is listed as doubtful ahead of Saturday's game against the Bucks.
Brogdon left Friday's game early and did not return. He has risen to All-Star status this season so hopefully this is not long-term but the silver lining is that he has not been ruled out. With T.J. McConnell (groin) listed as questionable, Aaron Holiday could potentially see all the minutes he can handle at point guard with either Justin Holiday or Doug McDermott starting at shooting guard.

The Pacers were paced by Doug McDermott's 18 points on Friday night.
McDermott has scored 14 or more points in four of his last five games now, and tonight he chipped in five boards and three triples. McDermott deserves a look in 14-teamers if you're hunting points these days. Expect him to lose time when Indiana gets back to full health, however.

Doug McDermott continued displaying his shooting prowess on Sunday against the Magic, as he dropped 18 points (7-of-13 FGs) and three 3-pointers over 26 minutes.
McDermott is a reliable bomber from deep and he chipped in six rebounds tonight as well. He is a useful short-term boost if you have someone to drop on your roster, but Myles Turner and Jeremy Lamb will undoubtedly bump him down the pecking order, and out of a realistic fantasy role, soon enough.

Doug McDermott had his second consecutive strong game on Friday, scoring 14 points with a pair of 3-pointers in 19 minutes.
McDermott has scored 33 points over his last two games and can be considered a short-term scoring boost in deeper formats. We imagine his opportunities will shrink quickly once Myles Turner and/or Jeremy Lamb returns.
November 7, 2019, 2:45 pmJeremy LambSG, Indiana Pacers
Jeremy Lamb (sprained left ankle) will remain out for Friday's game against the Pistons.
Lamb has performed very well early on this season as the starting shooting guard in the absence of Victor Oladipo. Since the Pacers are dealing with a lengthy injury report, it will once again be Malcolm Brogdon, Domantas Sabonis, and TJ Warren who will do most of the heavy lifting. Doug McDermott played 30 minutes of the bench on Wednesday and posted 19 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists.

Doug McDermott dropped a season-high 19 points in Wednesday's win over the Wizards, going 6-of-10 from the field while adding seven rebounds, four assists, a steal and four 3-pointers.
McDermott logged 31 minutes with Domantas Sabonis dealing with foul trouble and Jeremy Lamb missing the game due to injury. It was a big night for anyone who picked McDermott in DFS, but we wouldn't consider him a potential add off this outside of extremely deep leagues.

Doug McDermott (sore left foot) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Hornets.
McDermott is only useful in very deep leagues, and his value will drop again once the starting front court returns.
October 31, 2019, 2:55 pmEdmond SumnerPG, Indiana Pacers
Edmond Sumner has a non-displaced fracture of the right third metacarpal, and he will be re-examined in three weeks.
The good news is that he doesn't need surgery. His 22 mpg will be soaked up by Aaron Holiday and Doug McDermott, with Holiday being the more appealing option in deeper leagues.

Doug McDermott played 32 minutes off the bench in Wednesday’s win over the Nets, but only finished with six points, two triples and five rebounds.
He and Justin Holiday took the lion’s share of Myles Turner’s (right ankle sprain) minutes and neither was that impressive (Holiday finished with five points, seven boards and a steal in 24 minutes). Head coach Nate McMillan looks like he’ll take a committee approach to handling Turner’s workload and neither appear to be intriguing adds in his absence.
