    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo (left eye) has been sent for further testing after receiving a poke in the eye during Tuesday's loss to the Heat, according to Nate McMillan.

    Oladipo left the game early and was unable to return. Despite not being officially ruled out of the contest, Oladipo was never a chance to get back out there and his status for Thursday's Game 2 has to be up in the air. Should he miss any additional games, Justin Holiday and Edmond Sumner should receive a small bump.

    Victor Oladipo (left eye) was poked in the eye during Tuesday's game against the Heat and is questionable to return.

    Oladipo left the game after only nine minutes of playing time and is yet to return to the court. There has been no official word on his status but if he is unable to get back out there, Edmond Sumner and Justin Holiday will continue to pick up the slack.

  • Alize Johnson
    PF, Indiana Pacers

    Alize Johnson grabbed the first double-double of his career in Friday's start, corralling 11 points, 17 rebounds, four assists, a block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes of action.

    Johnson has done most of his work in the G League through his first two professional seasons but took full advantage of his opportunity today. He's known for his motor and rebounding prowess and put both to good use in this one, so congrats if you had him in a DFS lineup. Fellow replacement starter Edmond Sumner was less successful with seven points and six assists in 31 minutes.

    The Pacers will start Malcolm Brogdon, Edmond Sumner, Justin Holiday, Alize Johnson and JaKarr Sampson on Friday.

    Friday's games will all be glorified scrimmages with starters resting all over the place, and this one is no exception. DFS players have plenty of cheap options to choose from on today's slate.

  • 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.

  • Aaron Holiday
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Aaron Holiday started at point guard in Sunday's scrimmage, posting eight points, two assists, a steal and a block in 27 minutes of action.

    The Pacers look like they'll lean on smaller lineups with Domantas Sabonis out indefinitely and Holiday could be one of the big beneficiaries. He'll be a low offensive priority but could emerge with late-round value due to his contributions in steals and assists. Edmond Sumner (12 points in 17 minutes) was elevated into the backup PG role today and would likely hold that role if this is how Indiana chooses to attack the restart, though TJ McConnell will still get his share of work too.

    Despite the injuries to Victor Oladipo and Malcolm Brogdon, Edmond Sumner unable to play in more than 25 games for the Pacers.

    The arrival of T.J. McConnell gave the Pacers the backup PG they wanted, pushing Sumner completely out of the rotation. In the games he did manage to get sent out onto the floor, Sumner averaged 13.8 minutes and averaged 4.8 points, 1.6 assists and 0.6 steals per game to finish barely inside the fantasy top-350.

  • Doug McDermott
    SF, Indiana Pacers

    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.

  • 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.

    Edmond Sumner (sore left hip) is available for Saturday's game.

    Sumner might get into the mix if Victor Oladipo sits out but he's a longshot for value outside of anything other than 30-team leagues. Injuries took him out of the rotation after a promising start to the year.

    Edmond Sumner (sore left hip) will be a GTD against the Cavs on Saturday.

    Sumner has been out with the injury for all four games since the All-Star break, picking up some DNP-CD's before that. He has only appeared in 20 games this season at 13.4 minutes but might get into the rotation some more now that Jeremy Lamb is out for the year. He can be left on waivers nonetheless.

    Edmond Sumner (sore left hip) will not play on Thursday against the Blazers.

    Sumner's been out for a week now and there's no sign of when he'll return. He was in the rotation to begin the year and could find a few minutes available now that Jeremy Lamb is out, but Sumner is unlikely to reemerge as a fantasy option.

    Edmond Sumner (sore left hip) is considered questionable for Thursday's game against the Blazers.

    Sumner hasn't played since February 8. He's not worth owning in fantasy.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo (sore lower back) and Edmond Sumner (sore hip) are being ruled out ahead of Tuesday's game against the Hornets.

    Both Oladipo and Sumner were able to get in a light practice but ultimately weren't able to give it a go. Aaron Holiday is expected to draw another start and makes for a quality streaming option with Jeremy Lamb (ACL) also out of the lineup.

    Edmond Sumner (sore left hip) is questionable to play vs. the Raptors on Sunday.

    With Sumner out, T.J. McConnell and Aaron Holiday should soak up the extra minutes at the backup PG spot.
