    Doug McDermott has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Clippers because of a rib injury.

    That will be McDermott's third straight game on the sidelines. His absence doesn't change much of anything for fantasy owners.

    Doug McDermott (ribs), already ruled out on Monday, has also been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Lakers.

    McDermott also sat out on Saturday. His absence will hurt Indiana's floor spacing and forward depth but doesn't have much impact on fantasy leagues.

    Doug McDermott (ribs) has been ruled out ahead of Monday's matchup with the Pelicans.

    This will be McDermott's second straight game on the sidelines. While he's out we see some more consistent cameos from T.J. Leaf but there's not much fantasy value to be had here.

    Doug McDermott (bruised ribs) is listed as inactive for Saturday's game against the Heat.

    With McDermott averaging 17.5 minutes per game, this may mean a slightly bigger workload for Bojan Bogdanovic and Thaddeus Young. T.J. Leaf could see a bump as well.

    Doug McDermott is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Heat with bruised ribs.

    McDermott was forced out of the last game with the injury. His absence would mean a whole lot of nothing for fantasy purposes, so we can probably move forward without him.

    Doug McDermott is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Magic with bruised ribs.

    McDermott may or may not come back in this game, but we know that it doesn't matter, because he may or may not be a fantasy factor… ever.

    Doug McDermott (ankle) was able to practice on Thursday and is expected to play on Friday.

    Additionally, happy birthday to McDermott if he happens to be reading this. He sat out Wednesday's practice but this never seemed to be a serious injury. It'll be business as usual for the Pacers rotation tomorrow.

    Doug McDermott (ankle) was not able to practice on Wednesday.

    McDermott rolled his ankle in Indiana's last game but still has another day to rest up with the Pacers off until Friday. His presence or absence won't do much for fantasy purposes.

    Tyreke Evans (right knee bruise) has been ruled out of Friday’s game vs. the Nets.

    Evans’ absence means more run for Cory Joseph while rookie Aaron Holiday should rejoin the rotation. Doug McDermott is also a possible beneficiary.

    Tyreke Evans (right knee bruise) is a true game-time decision for Friday’s game against the Nets.

    Evans was previously listed as questionable so he’ll see how he feels after pregame warmups. If he can’t go, Aaron Holiday and maybe Doug McDermott look to pick up his usage.

    Doug McDermott went 5-for-5 from the field for 12 points, four rebounds and two triples in Wednesday's home win.

    McDermott outplayed Tyreke Evans today, which is noteworthy with a number of players likely to see their minutes cut now that Victor Oladipo is back. He's only a deep-league asset but if he's leapfrogged Evans in the pecking order it'll stabilize his floor.

    Doug McDermott led Indiana's bench with 14 points in Saturday's loss, going 5-for-8 from the field with a pair of threes in 22 minutes.

    McDermott has gotten a little more room to operate with Victor Oladipo sidelined but isn't much of a fantasy asset. Tyreke Evans continues to start in Oladipo's spot and put up 12 points, two rebounds, four assists, a steal and two triples in 29 minutes tonight. He's definitely the better player to own (by a wide margin) but has been a major disappointment this year. Hopefully Oladipo can return quickly and spare owners from having to deal with this mess.

  • Victor Oladipo

    The Pacers have listed Victor Oladipo (knee) as out indefinitely.

    We assume this means he won’t play on Saturday against the Kings. Dipo has already missed six games and he is on record that he’ll only return when he’s 100 percent. Until he gets back it’ll be Tyreke Evans and Cory Joseph that stand to benefit the most while Aaron Holiday and Doug McDermott are options for deeper formats.

    Doug McDermott scored 25 points on 7-of-12 shooting with five treys in 24 minutes off the bench on Tuesday against the Suns.

    McDermott has one of the worst stat sets in the league and has no standard league value.

    Pacers president of basketball operations Kevin Pritchard thinks Doug McDermott can be an elite player away from the ball with his movement and cutting.

    Pritchard was really gushing about McDermott, "moving and occupying defenders' minds, and then you've got a two-man game of Tyreke and Domantas on one side and Doug coming off screens. You have to dial into that. If you're not dialed into Doug, he's going to shoot and we want him to shoot a lot." It seems like Pritchard is a big fan of McDermott's game and that might translate into him being quite sleeper come draft day.
