    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.

    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.

  • T.J. McConnell
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    T.J. McConnell came off the bench on Wednesday and turned 30 minutes of playing time into 14 points (7-13 FG), four rebounds, six assists and two steals.

    McConnell saw an uptick in minutes with Malcolm Brogdon (sore left hip) leaving the contest. McConnell could be in for more minutes if the injury is serious. Aaron Holiday, who started with Victor Oladipo out, would likely be the primary beneficiary, but only scored five points to go with five rebounds, one assist and two steals.

  • Malcolm Brogdon
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    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.

  • T.J. McConnell
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    T.J. McConnell scored 12 points, dished out seven assists and grabbed six rebounds while logging 21 minutes in Friday's loss to the Raptors.

    McConnell had seen his volume dip dramatically with the return of Victor Oladipo, especially when the latter began starting games in their last one Wednesday. McConnell is hovering right around top 200 value on the year so he's definitely an option in deeper leagues. If any one of Indiana's guards get injured (or re-injured) expect the steady McConnell to step in. It's worth noting he got nine more minutes than fellow backup PG Aaron Holiday.

    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Malcolm Brogdon has two more steps to complete in the concussion protocol but stated that he is optimistic about returning to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

    If Brogdon can go, we'll get a glimpse of what the Pacers backcourt will look like going forward, as Victor Oladipo will be making his season debut. Brogdon has battled a multitude of injuries this year, so it is not a given that he will return. If Brogdon can't go, T.J McConnell and Aaron Holiday would see extra minutes.

  • T.J. McConnell
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    T.J. McConnell compiled 12 points (5-for-9 shooting), eight assists, a rebound, a steal and a block in 30 minutes in Friday's win.

    Both McConnell and Jeremy Lamb, who finished with 16 points, four assists, four rebounds, two triples, a steal and a block, took advantage of Malcolm Brogdon continuing to miss time. Don't hesitate to explore sell-high offers for Lamb after nice games like this as his value could quickly deteriorate when Brogdon and eventually Victor Oladipo return.

    PG, Indiana Pacers

    T.J. McConnell will start for Malcolm Brogdon (concussion) on Friday night.

    McConnell should be a solid choice for a boost in assists and the occasional three and/or steal. He's not much of a scorer but the Pacers' offense will be in capable and experienced hands tonight.

    PG, Indiana Pacers

    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
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    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.

  • Aaron Holiday
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Aaron Holiday was shifted to a reserve role on Friday but was unfazed as he posted 19 points on 8-of-9 shooting, adding three rebounds, two 3s and eight dimes.

    The Pacers opted to start T.J. McConnell, who was uninspiring with four points, three rebounds, four dimes and one steal in 26 minutes. Aaron Holiday continues to be the PG to own between the two and should still have a strong rotation presence when Malcolm Brogdon returns.

  • Malcolm Brogdon
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    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.

    Malcolm Brogdon (lower back soreness) is being listed as questionable to play against the Heat on Wednesday.

    If Brogdon is forced to sit out another game, T.J. McConnell and Aaron Holiday will continue to soak up extra minutes and usage.

    Malcolm Brogdon (back) did not participate in the live portions of practice on Tuesday and is a game-time decision on Wednesday against the Heat.

    Brogdon is in danger of missing another game after making it through just a handful of minutes after returning from hamstring soreness. Aaron Holiday and T.J. McConnell will continue to get extended run if Brogdon is unable to suit up.
