    Doug McDermott scored a team-high 23 points in Friday's 109-92 win over the Heat, hitting 8-of-16 shots from the field and five 3-pointers to go along with four boards and a steal.

    McDermott got some extra room to operate with Indiana sitting three of its normal starters today, though he will be in line for some postseason minutes given Domantas Sabonis' absence. McBuckets won't hold serious fantasy appeal unless TJ Warren's foot injury causes further absences, though that's not expected to happen.

  • Edmond Sumner
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Edmond Sumer led the bench on Wednesday with 17 points (6-of-11), four rebounds, four assists, one block, two treys and one turnover in 25 minutes.

    Sumner and Doug McDermott were the two bench players to score in double-figures in the contest as McDermott shot the ball very well, going 6-of-7 on his way to 16 points, two rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block, one turnover and three 3-pointers. McDermott was a perfect 3-of-3 from long range and is turning into one of the more underrated 3-point shooters in the league. Sumner continues to operate as an athletic guard off the bench but probably saw some additional minutes with Malcolm Brogdon (neck) sidelined. The Pacers will finish their 2019-20 season on Friday against the Heat.

  • TJ Warren

    T.J. Warren (sore right foot), Myles Turner (left ankle sprain) and Doug McDermott (sore right knee) will all be available for the Pacers on Saturday, but that could change, according to head coach Nate McMillan.

    After apparently suffering the injury during Thursday's loss to the Suns, Warren had been deemed questionable prior to this latest update. The fact he could be available would indicate the injury is nothing too serious. Likewise, Turner and McDermott also appear ready to go and barring any setbacks during pre-game shootaround, all three should be active.

    T.J. Warren is listed as questionable to face the Lakers on Saturday due to right foot soreness.

    Warren has been an absolute stud in the bubble and it would be a real shame to see him miss any games at this point. While he cooled off slightly on Thursday, he is still looking like a consistent 20 FGA per game option for the Pacers, and he's going to generate tons of points as a result. Doug McDermott is also questionable for this one due to a sore right knee. If Warren were to miss this game the Pacers would turn to Victor Oladipo and Malcolm Brogdon as their leading scoring options.

    Doug McDermott will miss Thursday's game against the Suns with a sore right knee.

    McDermott is a late surprise scratch from Thursday's game. He's only missed three games this season prior to today so it comes as a bit of a surprise.

  • Domantas Sabonis
    C, Indiana Pacers

    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.

    Pacers sharpshooter Doug McDermott shot his way to top-250 value in 9-cat in 2019-20, recording averages of 10.4 points, 1.9 threes and 2.5 rebounds on .491 shooting from the field and .827 shooting from the line in 20 minutes per game through 62 games.

    McDermott, who has pretty much defined himself as a true one-trick pony across his four-year NBA career, stayed that way last season. Thanks to the solid play of Justin Holiday off the bench, McDermott was not able to produce a reliable splash, both in real-life and fantasy.

    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.

    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.
