Brooks (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in an 87-81 loss to the Knicks on Tuesday. Brooks hasn't played in any of the Pacers' last three games, and has made only two appearances in March. When both Jeff Teague and Rodney Stuckey are healthy, it looks as though Brooks will find himself out of the rotation more often than not.
Brooks (coach's decision) didn't leave the bench in Monday's 93-90 win over the Thunder. With Rodney Stuckey (ankle) returning from a two-game absence, coach Nate McMillan didn't have room in his rotation for Brooks, who fell to third on the depth chart at point guard. Brooks also failed to play in the previous contest where Stuckey was available, so it appears that when the Pacers backcourt is at full strength, Brooks won't see the floor outside of garbage time.
Brooks (ankle) logged 13 minutes in a 109-103 win over the Timberwolves on Thursday, providing zero points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and three rebounds. Following a one-game hiatus due to a sore knee, Brooks resumed his usual role on the Pacers' second unit, but didn't offer much of an impact during his time on the court. The veteran point guard will struggle to see meaningful minutes as long as starter Jeff Teague remains healthy, and could even lose out on court time when Rodney Stuckey (hamstring) returns to action.
Brooks (knee) is probable for Thursday's matchup against Minnesota. Brooks missed Monday's game against the Knicks after playing just six minutes in the prior matchup against Utah, but it appears the reserve guard will be available again off the bench heading into the back-to-back set that begins Thursday.
Brooks will not play Monday against the Knicks due to a sore right knee. Brooks' minutes have been up and down, but he's averaging 13.4 minutes per game over the past five contests. In those five games, he's provided 4.8 points on 43.5 percent shooting to go along with 2.4 assists. Monta Ellis will likely pick up some of Brooks' usage during Monday's contest.
