      Pacers' Chase Budinger: Moves back to reserve role

      Budinger moved back to a reserve role in Tuesday's win over the Wizards. He accumulated five points (2-2 FG, 1-1 3Pt), one rebound, one assist, and one steal over his 15 minutes. Budinger had seen 30-plus minutes and scored double-digit points in both of the Pacers' previous two games, but the return of George Hill (illness) to Thursday's lineup resulted in Budinger's playing time being cut in half. The swingman will continue to be one of the first players off the bench and should see time at both shooting guard and small forward, but he'll need another injury to hit the Pacers' backcourt before he enjoys a more featured role.

      Pacers' Chase Budinger: Starting Saturday

      Budinger will start at shooting guard Saturday against the Bucks. George Hill (illness) is only available off the bench in an emergency, so Monta Ellis will technically be the Pacers' point guard Saturday. Look for Budinger to see 20-30 minutes as the starter.

      Pacers' Chase Budinger: Scores 15 points off bench Wednesday

      Budinger returned to the bench Wednesday against the Sixers, but had his best game of the season, scoring 15 points (5-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT) to go with six rebounds, two blocks, an assist, and a steal. Budinger may not have started, but he still saw more minutes than all the starters except for Paul George thanks to this performance. Both the point and rebound totals were season highs as well. This performance may warrant another look in the starting lineup, but it appears that the Pacers will base his minutes off of his in-game performance each night regardless of whether he's starting or not.

      Pacers' Chase Budinger: Shifting to bench

      Budinger will shift back to the bench Wednesday against the 76ers, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports. The George Hill-less Pacers will mix things up and go with LaVoy Allen in the starting lineup Wednesday, and he'll be joined by CJ Miles, Paul Goerge, Ian Mahinmi and Monta Ellis.

      Pacers' Chase Budinger: Quiet in Monday's start

      Budinger was held scoreless (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and contributed four rebounds and a steal over 18 minutes in Monday's 96-95 loss to the Bulls. Though he received his first start of the season Monday with George Hill (illness) and Rodney Stuckey (ankle) sidelined, Budinger's performance didn't deviate much from what he usually provides off the bench. Rather than seeing his own role increase with the move to the starting lineup, it was deep reserves Joe Young (12 minutes) and Solomon Hill (13 minutes) who seemed to be the main beneficiaries for extra playing time. With that in mind, Budinger shouldn't attract much interest even if he's able to maintain a spot in the starting lineup for another game or two.

      Pacers' Chase Budinger: Will start Monday versus Chicago

      Pacers' Chase Budinger: Scores four points Wednesday

      Budinger scored four points and snagged four rebounds in Wednesday's 100-98 win over the Celtics. Budinger is the backup small forward behind CJ Miles (ankle), however he's only playing 14.4 minutes per game and hasn't been much of a scoring threat. He did see a slight spike in minutes (19) in Wednesday's game, which is likely the result of Miles nursing his right ankle. Until Miles regains his full health, Budinger may see an increased role but he doesn't offer a lot when it comes to most fantasy formats.

      Pacers' Chase Budinger: Scores 17 against Hornets

      Budinger tallied 17 points (7-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and two steals across 25 minutes in a preseason win over the Hornets on Thursday. Budinger has always shown some scoring ability, but has had a rough time finding a home in the NBA. He'll likely have trouble finding another big role here in Indiana, simply because the roster is full of talented players who have earned more playing time than Budinger. His talent could shine through though and he could play a nice role off the bench, if things fall his way.

      Pacers' Chase Budinger: Returned to practice Sunday

      Budinger (hamstring) returned to practice Sunday and plans to play in Tuesday's matchup with the Pistons, Nate Taylor of the Indystar reports. Budinger has missed three straight preseason games due to the hamstring injury, but he's back at practice and should be ready to play come Tuesday. Don't be surprised if he's on a minutes restriction, though, as it's only preseason and the Pacers don't want to risk a further aggravation. He'll slot in as the backup to C.J. Miles at small forward.

      Pacers forward Chase Budinger ruled out Thursday

      Pacers forward Chase Budinger (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday's preseason game against Orlando, Candace Buckner of the Indy Star reports. Budinger will miss a third straight preseason matchup due to the hamstring ailment, and he's currently without a return timetable. While the injury isn't considered overly serious, the fact that he's already been ruled out for Thursday's game, rather than being listed as questionable or doubtful, may be an indication that he's currently not close to 100 percent.
