The Pacers plan to interview Heat assistants Dan Craig and Chris Quinn before narrowing their search to a few finalists that they will have in-person interviews next week before making their ultimate decision.
The Pacers have taken their time in interviewing many candidates including Chris Finch of the Pelicans, Nate Bjorkgren of the Raptors, Chauncey Billups and Dave Joerger. Expect the Pacers to make their final decision sometime within the next two-three weeks.

Ex-Thunder head coach Billy Donovan interviewed for the Pacers' head coaching vacancy last week and the team will begin conducting final in-person interviews soon, according to The Athletic.
Donovan is one of the biggest names on the market and will likely be interviewing for many of the teams looking for a new coach. The Pacers have been attached to several other names including Chauncey Billups and Warriors' assistant coach Mike Brown. Multiple teams appear to be heading into the final round of interviews with head coaching candidates, so expect to see a volley of headlines in the coming weeks as final decisions are made.

Malcolm Brogdon played a whopping 43 minutes during Saturday's Game 3 loss, leading all scorers with 34 points to go with 14 assists, seven rebounds, four triples and two steals.
Brogdon was clearly the Pacers' best player and almost orchestrated a miraculous comeback. After trailing by 18 points at the half, they were able to close to within three points late but fell short as the Heat push out to a 3-0 series lead. This was Brogdon's best game in quite a while and demonstrates why he was a highly touted fantasy target coming into the season.

Malcolm Brogdon handed out a game-high nine dimes to go with 17 points (4-for-14 FG), five rebounds and two 3-pointers in Thursday's Game 2 loss to the Heat.
Brogdon had an awful shooting night, but his playmaking was still on point as he handed out a game-high nine dimes. He's a much better shooter than this, so he'll bounce back, but nothing is easy when you play the Heat's stingy defense.

Malcolm Brogdon recorded his first career playoff double-double during Tuesday's 113-101 loss to the Heat, amassing 22 points and 10 assists in 39 minutes.
Brogdon looked great during the loss and the Pacers are going to need much more of this if they are to emerge victorious. Brogdon has had a somewhat disappointing season after being viewed by many as a potential breakout candidate. He is no stranger when it comes to injuries and the Pacers will be hoping he can maintain his health moving forward.

Malcolm Brogdon was one of the few Pacers starters to play on Friday, and he responded with 16 points, six rebounds, six assists and four threes in 25 minutes of work.
Brogdon had a typical line in a quick outing, so anyone who rolled the dice in DFS should be very happy with these results. He's been battling a neck injury in the bubble but has looked good whenever he's been on the floor. Feel free to target Brogdon in the middle rounds of your playoff league drafts.

The Pacers will start Malcolm Brogdon, Edmond Sumner, Justin Holiday, Alize Johnson and JaKarr Sampson on Friday.
Friday's games will all be glorified scrimmages with starters resting all over the place, and this one is no exception. DFS players have plenty of cheap options to choose from on today's slate.

Malcolm Brogdon is not listed on the injury report and we should expect him to play in the team's season finale against the Heat on Friday.
Brogdon has missed some games in the restart due to a neck issue but appears to be healthy at the right time. Brogdon will be the only usual starter on Friday and will likely see fewer than his normal allotment of minutes. There is some value on the wire with silly season in full-swing. Justin Holiday, Doug McDermott, T.J. McConnell and Aaron Holiday are some of the players to look at on the Pacers.

Malcolm Brogdon (sore neck) will miss Wednesday's game.
Brogdon had been considered questionable, and the Pacers will give him the game off. Aaron Holiday will see more court time against the Rockets.

Malcolm Brogdon (sore neck), Victor Oladipo (sore left ankle) and Myles Turner (sore neck) are all viewed as questionable heading into Wednesday's battle with the Rockets.
All three were able to log decent minutes against the Heat on Monday and the Pacers may simply be electing to play it safe in preparation for the playoffs. If they are given the night off, fantasy managers will want to be targeting players like Aaron Holiday, T.J. McConnell and Goga Bitadze.

Malcolm Brogdon scored 12 points on 4-of-12 shooting while adding eight rebounds and six assists against the Heat on Monday.
Brogdon went 0-for-3 from deep and the poor shooting from the field says more about the Heat defense than it does about Brogdon as a player. He'll be fine moving forward.

Malcom Brogdon knocked down four triples in the Pacers' victory over the Lakers on Saturday, finishing with 24 points (8-for-13 FG), five rebounds, six assists and a steal.
Brogdon was on the floor for 39.2 minutes in this one, well higher than his season average of 30.9 mpg. The Pacers' are still battling for playoff position as they are in the middle of the pack in the East. The Lakers were noticeably and expectedly laying off the accelerator with their playoff seed atop the West set in stone. The biggest concern for Brogdon is avoiding an injury.

Malcolm Brogdon finished Thursday's loss to the Suns with a team-high 25 points on 9-of-16 from the field to go with six rebounds, six assists, one block, four 3-pointers and three turnovers in 31 minutes.
Brogdon and Myles Turner were the only starters who shot well on Thursday as Turner pitched in with 17 points (7-of-12), eight rebounds, two assists, one steal, three blocks, one trey and four turnovers in 32 minutes. Brogdon has been dealing with some neck pain as he has consistently been on the injury report but has been able to play in all but one of the Pacers' seeding games. Turner continues to see an increased workload with Domantas Sabonis (plantar fasciitis) sidelined. The Pacers will look to turn the tide as they face the Lakers on Saturday.
August 6, 2020, 3:44 pmMalcolm BrogdonPG, Indiana Pacers
The Pacers will have both Malcolm Brogdon (cervical strain) and Victor Oladipo (management) available for Thursday's matchup against the Suns.
Thursday marks the second time that the Pacers will have both Brogdon and Oladipo together since the seeding games began. Oladipo has a pretty juicy price tag on some DFS sites and could have some value against the Suns while both should be played where rostered.

The Pacers may have to face the Suns without Malcolm Brogdon (cervical strain) on Thursday as he is listed as questionable on the injury report.
Brogdon has been on the injury report with this neck issue for the duration of the resumption league, but has only had to miss one game so far. We will find out his availability ahead of tip-off tomorrow. If he is ultimately ruled out, expect more playing time for Aaron Holiday and T.J. McConnell.
