  • Wesley Matthews - G/F - Indiana Pacers

    Wesley Matthews had a rough outing in Game 2 against the Celtics, finishing with just six points (2-of-8 from the field), five assists, three rebounds and two turnovers in 28 minutes.

    Matthews committed a costly turnover on the in-bounds play in the final 12 seconds of regulation, all but ending Indiana's chances of tying the game. This sort of line has been pretty par for the course in his brief tenure as a Pacer. They will need him to play more efficiently if they are to get back into this series.

    Wesley Matthews (sore right toe) scored just eight points on 3-for-8 shooting in in Sunday's 84-74 loss against the Celtics.

    No, that score is not a typo despite it being 2019. Matthews got his points early on and faded as the game progressed. The Pacers need a better effort from everyone if they don't want to get run off the floor for the rest of the series.

    Wesley Matthews (sore right toe) did not play in Wednesday's close win over the Atlanta Hawks, ending a rough regular season for the veteran wing.

    Matthews joined the Pacers after being waived by New York and assumed Victor Oladipo’s playing time of 31 mpg. As a Pacer, Matthews averaged 10.9 points and 2.1 3-pointers per game at an inefficient .384 rate from the field. He was top-190 value in Indy, which was almost identical to his full-season value. With no real fantasy value outside of his 3-point shot Matthews doesn’t figure be rostered too frequently next year.

    The Pacers are listing Wesley Matthews (sore right toe) as out ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Hawks.

    Cory Joseph, Aaron Holiday and Tyreke Evans, assuming he can return, are all looking at a few extra minutes. Each is worth a look as a streaming option in what is a good matchup against the fastest-paced team in the league.

    Wesley Matthews played his second game back from injury (right hamstring strain) on Sunday but struggled again, scoring three points with a steal in 25 minutes.

    It's not great but it is definitely a step up from Matthews' first game back on Friday, when he delivered 10 points with two 3-pointers in 22 minutes. With his playing time capped heading into the postseason and Indiana locked into the five spot, there's no need to hang on for Matthews' low-end 3-and-D numbers. There should be higher-upside options available on the wire.

    Wesley Matthews will be a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Celtics with a strained right hamstring.

    Matthews seems like he may suit up and do his normal duty of some points and 3-pointers on the cheap. Without him, we'll keep seeing the Bojan Bogdanovic show.

    Wesley Matthews (right hamstring strain) has been listed as questionable ahead of Friday's tilt against the Celtics.

    Wesley Matthews and fellow guard Darren Collison returned to practice on Thursday. Out of the two, Matthews has the best chance of helping his team beat the Celtics on Friday night. If Matthews can't go, look for Tyreke Evans and Aaron Holiday to pick up more minutes while Bojan Bogdanovic will be asked to pick up an even greater scoring load.

    Wesley Matthews (hamstring) returned to practice on Thursday.

    Matthews was joined by backcourt mate Darren Collison, who also returned to practice on Thursday. With a big matchup looming against the Celtics with home-court advantage on the line look for Matthews to try to play through the groin injury. His return would be a dent in the values of Cory Joseph, Tyreke Evans and Aaron Holiday.

    Matthews joins Darren Collison on the injured list ahead of Wednesday's game. Cory Joseph, Tyreke Evans and Aaron Holiday will see an uptick in playing time in a rematch from Monday night. Each is worth a look as cheap DFS plays.

    The Pacers will also be without starting point guard Darren Collison. Cory Joseph and Tyreke Evans would be the likely candidates to draw the start making them solid streaming and DFS options.

    Wes Matthews scored 16 points, hit four triples and turned the ball over four times on Thursday night.

    We're interested in Matthews for the outside shooting that he brings. The loss of Victor Oladipo has opened up a lot of scoring opportunities for the Pacers' wings, and Matthews should have free reign to jack up threes the rest of the way.

  • Wesley Matthews - G/F - Indiana Pacers

    Wesley Matthews hit three triples on Thursday night, finishing with 12 points.

    Matthews is absolutely a fantasy asset at least as a 3-point specialist the rest of the way. He's going to get burdened with a lot of shots and scoring responsibilities, so there should be enough points and threes to make him viable into the fantasy playoffs.
