    Malcolm Brogdon is the latest NBA player to test positive for COVID-19.

    Brogdon said that he'll still be with his teammates in Orlando, and that he's feeling good and progressing well. That makes it seem like he wasn't asymptomatic but it does sound as though he's on his way to a full recovery. Expect more positive tests in the coming days.

    Malcolm Brogdon says he's back at 100% after suffering a torn left rectus femoris.

    Brogdon's torn quad had him week-to-week when he first got hurt in early March, but it sounds like he'll be ready to go when/if the NBA can resume its season. The former Rookie of the Year was outstanding to kick off his Pacers tenure but faded a little down the stretch, though fantasy GMs have very little to complain about on the whole.

    Malcolm Brogdon has been diagnosed with a torn left rectus femoris (quad, basically) and will be listed as week-to-week going forward.

    It's a huge blow to the Pacers, who are jockeying for seeding in the playoffs. Brogdon started the year off tremendously and has slowed down to more of a middle-round level of late but is still a massive part of Indiana's attack. Aaron Holiday, TJ McConnell, Edmond Sumner and Justin Holiday should all get additional minutes as a result of this injury, and each brings different things to the table. Aaron is the better Holiday for scoring upside while Justin should be the most consistent producer of steals and threes. McConnell is a light FG% boost with assists, while Sumner has the best all-around game for deep-league GMs who want to bet on upside. Victor Oladipo is another big winner, as he's going to take on a lot of extra ball-handling work. Hopefully that can get him sorted out, as it's been a rocky campaign for Dipo to this point. Fantasy GMs without IR spots who are scrapping for a playoff spot might have to consider dropping Brogdon given this nebulous timeline.

    Malcolm Brogdon (hip) will miss Friday's game against the Bulls.

    This appeared to be Brogdon's destination for Friday. The injury-prone label he carried with him into Indiana has stuck throughout the season. Doug McDermott (toe) is also out on Friday, which means minutes will open up for the likes of T.J. McConnell and Justin Holiday.

    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.

    Doug McDermott (toe) and Jakarr Sampson (hip) are both questionable ahead of Friday's matchup vs. the Bulls.

    McDermott is an efficient three-point specialist for deeper leagues but doesn't do enough outside of those categories to warrant standard league relevance. He does have appeal in 14-team leagues as a specialist for as long as Malcolm Brogdon (hip) and Victor Oladipo (knee) are out. Sampson is not relevant in fantasy circles outside of the deepest of leagues.

    Malcolm Brogdon is scheduled to have an MRI done on the hip that he injured in Wednesday's game and is considered doubtful for Friday's contest vs. the Bulls.

    It seems highly unlikely that Brogdon will play on Friday. Expect Justin Holiday, Doug McDermott and T.J. McConnell to see additional opportunity while he remains sidelined. Holiday is the only player of the three that is worth using in standard leagues at this time.

    Malcolm Brogdon (sore left hip) will not return on Wednesday vs. the Bucks.

    Brogdon has battled with injuries throughout the season and owners can only hope this injury doesn't sideline him for too long with the fantasy playoffs approaching in most formats. T.J. McConnell started the second half and can be used as an assists streamer until Brogdon returns. Aaron Holiday started with Victor Oladipo out and is worth rostering in standard leagues until the Pacers get healthy.

    Malcolm Brogdon (sore left hip) is questionable to return on Wednesday vs. the Bucks.

    Brogdon has struggled with a myriad of injuries throughout the season. If he misses time Aaron Holiday would benefit the most and would be worth a look in standard leagues for owners needing a PG.

    Malcolm Brogdon led the Pacers to a 116-11 win on Monday with a game-high 26 points to go with six rebounds, seven assists and two triples.

    Brogdon's buy-low window is shut as he's now back in form. Victor Oladipo (right knee swelling) sat this one out and makes things a bit messy on offense, but Brogdon was never in real danger of slipping in value as he's been one of the engines in the Pacers' offense.

    Victor Oladipo returned to action for the Pacers on Saturday but it did not stop Malcolm Brogdon from delivering an excellent performance providing the Pacers with 22 points on 9-of-13 shooting from the field and 4-of-4 at the line.

    Brogdon also added one rebound, eight dimes and one steal with just one turnover to round out his line for the night. The return of Dipo was not able to slow him down and the hope here is that both stars will be able to share the backcourt and remain productive as the season winds down.

    Malcolm Brogdon struggled from the floor on Thursday, shooting 7-of-20 en route to 17 points, six rebounds, eight assists and two cash counters in a team-high 38 minutes.

    The percentage dip has really pushed Brogdon down the board this season and he's currently sitting right on the edge of top-100 value after a disappointing and injury-riddled past two months. He should be decently productive the rest of the way and should improve as Victor Oladipo gets back to full strength and takes away more defensive attention.

    Victor Oladipo (sore lower back) is questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Oladipo was injured on Friday and missed Sunday's matchup. With Jeremy Lamb injured, Malcolm Brogdon will really be in the driver's seat for the Pacers especially if Oladipo is out longer.

    Malcolm Brogdon had an off night against the Raptors on Sunday, totaling nine points (4-of-15 FG), five rebounds, four assists and two steals.

    Brogdon still received over 30 minutes despite the Pacers losing by a 44-point margin, which allowed him to produce some rebounds and assists to salvage the night. The shooting woes have become an issue, as Brogdon has shot under .420 for the past month, and sits at just .435 field goal percentage for the season.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo (back) will sit out Sunday's road contest vs. the Raptors.

    Coach Nate McMillan was not very optimistic about Dipo's chances of suiting up for the Pacers' game Sunday after he missed practice, so this is not a surprising development. He had been upgraded to questionable prior to being ruled out, however, so it sounds like he won't be on the shelf for too long. Oladipo's return to the court has gone anything but smooth so far. Jeremy Lamb will likely receive the start in his place and Malcolm Brogdon will run the offense with Oladipo out of the lineup.
