Malcolm Brogdon suffered a concussion after getting hit in the head on Wednesday and will not play vs. thee Warriors on Thursday.
Brogdon can't seem to catch a break. Concussion timelines are tough to gauge because they vary from player to player and case-to-case basis. Expect Aaron Holiday to start but he should split those PG minutes with T.J. McConnell.

Malcolm Brogdon suffered a laceration on Wednesday and did not return after seeing 16 minutes where he posted five points on 2-of-4 shooting with three assists and one triple.
Brogdon has gotten more than his fair share of bumps, nicks, and assorted other injuries this season. While he's not going to miss a lot of time with this one, likely being held out due to the blow-out nature of the game. T.J. McConnell stepped up in this one as he was able to record a 10-point, 11-assist double-double with three steals and one block in 27 minutes. McConnell is an add in deep leagues if Brogdon sits a game or two.

Malcolm Brogdon will not return on Wednesday after getting stitches in his forehead.
Brogdon finished the game with five points on 2-of-4 shooting and three assists in 16 minutes. Brogdon owners can't catch a break with his injuries this season. He was listed questionable to return in this game before officially being ruled out, so hopefully that is a sign that he won't miss multiple games. The Pacers have a cake matchup with the Warriors on Friday so be sure to check for an update on Brogdon before then.

Malcolm Brogdon headed to the locker room on Wednesday to get stitches in his forehead and is questionable to return.
The injury bug has plagued Brogdon all season. This is a fluky injury and it doesn't appear like he will miss extended time since he is questionable to return.

Malcolm Brogdon continued his strong play on Sunday vs. the Nuggets, going for 22 points (8-of-17 FG, 4-of-4 FT), eight assists, three rebounds, two 3-pointers and two turnovers.
Brogdon has been excellent since returning from strep throat and lower back soreness. He is resembling the early-season production that had him returning early-round value, and while that may be too much for Brogdon to do over an 82-game campaign, he is going to be a mid-round asset, even when Victor Oladipo rejoins the fold for the Pacers. Justin Holiday had a decent line off the bench, going for 14 points, four rebounds, three 3-pointers and one block. The Pacers have a number of options off the bench, making Holiday more of a 16-team play.

Malcolm Brogdon put up 12 points, four rebounds, 10 assists, a block and two 3-pointers in Friday's win over the Wolves.
Brogdon hit a clutch floater to put the Pacers up late in the game and he's been nothing short of spectacular for Indiana this season. Victor Oladipo's eventual return will undoubtedly hurt a little bit, but Brogdon should be able to easily maintain middle-round value. Myles Turner was also solid if unspectacular tonight with eight points, six rebounds, a steal and three blocks.

Malcom Brogdon finished Wednesday's contest with 21 points (9-of-18 shooting), six rebounds and six assists.
Brogdon has adjusted quickly to life back in the starting lineup. Even when Victor Oladipo returns, Brogdon should have a strong presence on the floor. He currently sits at fifth-round value, and likely will hover around that for the season.

Malcolm Brogdon's second attempt at returning to the Pacers' lineup went much better than the first as Brogdon starred with 21 points (5-for-15 FGs, 8-for-9 FTs), seven rebounds, nine assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes in a home win over the Sixers on Monday.
Brogdon had played just eight minutes over the last nine games, and it's great to see him jump right in with 34 minutes. While he's not quite the top-20 player he looked like to start the season, Brogdon is an excellent high-floor point guard and should remain that way even once Victor Oladipo returns (which still doesn't seem imminent).

Malcolm Brogdon (illness) will start Monday's game.
Brogdon had been considered questionable but is good to go. Aaron Holiday has filled in recently but will move back to a lesser role. Despite a dip in 3-point shooting, Brogdon has had a strong season with Victor Oladipo sidelined.

Malcolm Brogdon (strep throat) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the 76ers.
Brogdon's suffered injuries to his hand, hamstring and lower back, so of course he comes down with a case of strep throat as soon as he's nearing a return from back spasms. If anything, maybe this allows his bout with muscle spasms to subside, but take this as a reminder that Brogdon has battled injuries throughout his career. His hot start to the season is a distant memory and Victor Oladipo (knee) is nearing a return, which will curtail Brogdon's upside significantly in due time. That said, the Pacers are angling for the playoffs and their fortunes rest on Brogdon's brittle shoulders, so we'd expect him to be counted on to have a strong second half of the season. As soon as he turns it on, however, you'd have to think about selling high given his track record with injuries. Expect Aaron Holiday to hog minutes at PG in the mean time.

Malcolm Brogdon (illness) will not play on Friday night.
Brogdon was set to return to action from his lower back issue, but a bout of strep throat will keep him sidelined. TJ McConnell and Aaron Holiday will benefit the most and make for decent DFS options.

Suffering from strep throat, Malcolm Brogdon has been listed as questionable for Friday's matchup with the Bulls.
This is a new issue for Brogdon and it looks like we are heading for a game-time decision on Brogdon's status. It is unlikely he receives a starters dose of minutes in his first game back. Whether or not Brogdon takes the floor, Aaron Holiday will still have some nice value on Friday, and TJ McConnell also remains in the conversation in deeper leagues.

Brogdon has missed the last seven games as a result of the injury. If he can return, even in a limited capacity, Aaron Holiday, TJ McConnell and Edmond Sumner will lose some time. Brogdon is officially listed as questionable.
