Kyle O'Quinn took his forearm to Trae Young's head in Wednesday night's game, earning him an ejection in the 2nd quarter.
O’Quinn ended his night with six points, two rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 10 minutes. Owners have always had reason to keep one close eye on O’Quinn throughout an NBA season, as any opening in playing time could yield fantasy gold with the type stat-set he brings to the table. Unfortunately, O’Quinn saw little opportunity to crack the Pacers’ rotation this year, averaging just 8.2 minutes per game while finishing outside the top-350 in value. He’ll be a free agent this offseason, and if he finds himself in the right situation he could again return to being a source for low-end value.

Domantas Sabonis (left ankle sprain) has been ruled out for Saturday’s game vs. the Cavs.
This wasn’t unexpected as Sabonis was projected to miss a couple games with the injury. Kyle O’Quinn and T.J. Leaf have another shot to produce.

Kyle O'Quinn started for Myles Turner (left hip contusion) again on Saturday night and tallied eight points, six rebounds, five assists and a steal in 21 minutes.
It's a shame that O'Quinn is stuck on a team that doesn't have him in the regular rotation. He and his sneaky stat set have the green light for as long as Turner is out, but he's an easy drop when the Pacers are at full strength.

Kyle O'Quinn started for an injured Myles Turner (bruised right hip) on Friday and delivered eight points (3-of-6 shooting), 10 rebounds, three assists and two steals.
Domantas Sabonis also feasted in Turner's absence with 18 points (7-of-9 shooting) with 13 rebounds, four assists and one block. O'Quinn was not in the rotation prior to this spot start but is worth adding in deep leagues while Turner is on the mend.
February 22, 2019, 5:22 pmMyles Turner - F/C - Indiana Pacers
Myles Turner (bruised left hip) will miss Friday’s game vs. the Pelicans while Tyreke Evans (sore left ankle) will play.
Domantas Sabonis gets a but more usage while Kyle O’Quinn could be a nice, cheap DFS play as he’s expected to start for Turner. Evans has been outside the top-200 in 9-cat for most of the season and isn’t a good option in most formats.

Kyle O'Quinn put up nine points with seven rebounds and four blocks in 17 minutes against the Raptors on Sunday.
He shot 3-of-8 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line. He is outside the top-300 on the season and that is likely due to the lack of room for him in the Pacers' rotation. He would provide late-round value or better if someone in the Pacers' frontcourt gets hurt, but for now it is best to leave him on the wire.

Kyle O'Quinn (illness) is available to play on Friday night.
O'Quinn was upgraded quickly after being listed as questionable yesterday. It's possible that he sees the court if Joel Embiid gets any of Indy's other bigs into foul trouble but unfortunately O'Quinn isn't a regular member of the rotation.

Kyle O'Quinn (illness) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game.
O'Quinn is a elite insurance policy as a third center but he's simply not in the rotation on most nights. It's a shame that such a fantasy talent is going to waste, but the Pacers simply have too much talent in the frontcourt.

Kyle O'Quinn returned to the Pacers' rotation in Friday's 112-90 win over the Magic with Domantas Sabonis out with food poisoning and was able to shine with 12 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 27 minutes.
O'Quinn last took to the hardwood for the Pacers on November 26th where he logged just five minutes. The combined four steals and blocks were nice for DFS purposes but it's advisable to stay away from him in season-long leagues for now.
December 7, 2018, 5:39 pmDomantas Sabonis - F - Indiana Pacers
Domantas Sabonis (illness) has been ruled out of Friday’s game against the Magic.
Well, that stinks. There’s nobody even close on the roster that can step in to fill his mid-round 9-cat value so aside from Myles Turner getting some extra run, it’ll be Thad Young and Kyle O’Quinn picking up the slack.

Myles Turner (sore left ankle) will not play on Friday vs. the Spurs.
Well that stinks, so hopefully those of you in daily formats can make a switch before the game starts. Domontas Sabonis (right ankle) is available to play and should looking at as much usage as he can handle while Kyle O’Quinn should also get some run off the bench.

Kyle O'Quinn played three minutes on Wednesday against the Spurs.
O'Quinn had a big night with 16 points, eight boards, one steal and two blocks on Saturday and predictably crashed since then. Unless he has a consistent role in the rotation, he belongs on the wire.
October 20, 2018, 9:38 pmKyle O'Quinn - C - Indiana Pacers
Kyle O'Quinn scored 16 points on 7-of-12 shooting with eight rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 19 minutes off the bench on Saturday against the Nets.
O'Quinn does this all the time but hasn't been guaranteed a nightly rotation slot and that's typically the problem — consistency. Give him a look if you need a big man but remember that this is risky territory outside of deeper formats.

In an interview with NBA.com, Pacers’ President Kevin Pritchard said that Kyle O'Quinn was not promised a place in the rotation during his recruitment.
Here is the exact quote: "We don't know if you're going to play a minute or 500 minutes, but there's a role that Al Jefferson held last year that was a tremendous role for us that's so important." This makes the O’Quinn signing even more interesting as it appears that he signed up to be the back up man in an already crowed frontcourt. Big Al managed to play 13.4 minutes across 36 appaerances last season and that was mainly due to Myles Turner missing multiple games due to injuries. KOQ usually has late-round value even in standard leagues but with him being stuck behind Turner, Sabonis and Young there won’t be many minutes left for him.
