Brooks is no longer listed on the team's injury report. Brooks was recently dealing with soreness in his right knee. After being taken off the injury report, Brooks will most likely be a full go for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.
Brooks suffered an injury to his right knee during Monday's game and is questionable to return. Early reports are that Brooks is dealing with a sore right knee. If he can't return to the hardwood, both Monta Ellis and Lance Stephenson could be called on to pick up the slack.
Brooks recorded 18 points (6-15 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one steal over 28 minutes in Wednesday's 110-97 loss to the Grizzlies. It looked like Brooks wanted to win the game on his own in the first half, as the journeyman point guard drained all four of his 3-pointers and another 2-point shot in the first two quarters. He usually only averages 13.3 minutes of usage behind Jeff Teague, but the team exhausted itself trying to keep up with Mike Conley and as a result, Brooks saw some more time and took advantage of the opportunity. Despite this exceptional outing, Brooks is essentially a role player who has little fantasy value. Unless something happens to Teague, he should remain on the waiver wire.
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.
