    TJ Leaf (illness) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game.

    Leaf plays a very minor role for the Pacers, but JaKarr Sampson could see a couple of extra minutes if Leaf cannot play against the Raptors.

    Jakarr Sampson drew the start for an ill Myles Turner on Sunday and saw just 17 minutes with an unremarkable three rebounds and two points on 0-for-3 shooting from the field.

    Sampson obviously is not worth your time right now, so move on.

    Jakarr Sampson will get the starting nod, in place of the ill Myles Turner, for Sunday's tilt against the Blazers.

    While Sampson will get some opening minutes it is unlikely the Pacers have to lean upon him heavily. He had been barely getting action, and the Pacers will have Goga Bitzade coming off the bench to backup Domantis Sabonis at center. Doug McDermott could also see a boost in minutes coming off the bench.

    Jakarr Sampson will be unable to play for the Pacers on Friday due to an illness.

    Sampson is on the fringes of the Pacers' rotation and that's when he was healthy. He can be left on the wire and Justin Holiday should soak up as many minutes on the wing as he can tonight.

    Jakarr Sampson is questionable to face the Warriors on Friday due to his left ankle sprain.

    Sampson is barely cracking the Pacers' rotation. Whether he is healthy or injured, it does not make much of a difference for his status in fantasy.

  • Domantas Sabonis
    C, Indiana Pacers

    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.

    Domantas Sabonis (sore left hip) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game versus the Bucks.

    The Pacers could really use another body in the frontcourt, but if Sabonis is unable to go JaKarr Sampson would most likely draw the start and is worth a look in DFS as a punt play.

    Domantas Sabonis (sore left hip) is being listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Bucks.

    Sabonis picked up the injury during Friday's game versus the Kings. If he is forced to sit out JaKarr Sampson would most likely draw the start, while Myles Turner and Malcolm Brogdon see a boost in usage.

    Sampson is an afterthought on the Pacers and does not need to be rostered in fantasy basketball.

    JaKarr Sampson (back) has been upgraded to questionable for Friday.

    Sampson has been out for about three weeks now, so it's good to see him finally make some progress. He doesn't have any fantasy value while the Pacers are healthy.

    Jakarr Sampson (sore lower back) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

    Sampson saw an increased opportunity when the Pacers suffered several injuries earlier in the year but still didn't do enough to provide standard league value. He is off the radar when the team is fully healthy, even in deep leagues.
