    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.

    JaKarr Sampson (sore lower back) is being listed as questionable to take on the Knicks on Saturday.

    Sampson has missed the last nine contests with the back issue after starting seven of the Pacers' first nine games this season with Myles Turner missing time. There have been minimal updates regarding Sampson's recovery but he shouldn't have any fantasy value anyway as long as Turner and Domantas Sabonis are both healthy.

    Jakarr Sampson is doubtful ahead of Friday's matchup against the Pistons as he is dealing with a sore lower back.

    Sampson was very solid in the seven starts that he made while the Pacers dealt with several injuries to their frontcourt players as he played with a lot of energy. However, when the team is fully healthy, he doesn't have enough minutes to warrant fantasy relevance.

    The Pacers have ruled JaKarr Sampson (back) and Edmond Sumner (right hand fracture) out for Monday.

    Both players remain sidelined, though Sumner was improving as of the last reports issues by the team. There's limited fantasy appeal with Indiana at full strength these days.

    JaKarr Sampson (back soreness) is doubtful for Friday's game.

    JaKarr Sampson will not play on Monday due to back soreness.

    Sampson was already regarded as doubtful, so this is not surprising news. Sampson doesn't hold much fantasy value while Myles Turner is healthy.

    JaKarr Sampson (back) is listed as doubtful ahead of Monday's tilt with the Grizzlies.

    Sampson also sat out on Saturday but was coming off a DNP-CD now that Myles Turner has returned to the lineup. It was a good run (for deeper formats), but Sampson can be cut loose in just about all leagues.

    Sampson's role has been limited since the return of Myles Turner and there is no real value for any player in his absence and Sampson should be considered day-to-day going forward.
