Pacers' Thaddeus Young: To start at power forward
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Coach Nate McMillan confirmed Monday that Young will open the season as the Pacers' starting power forward, Nate Taylor of the Indianapolis Star reports.

McMillan revealed his entire projected lineup, noting that, unsurprisingly, Young will start alongside Myles Turner, Paul George, Monta Ellis and Jeff Teague. Young enjoyed one of the best individual seasons of his career as a member of the Nets last season, averaging 15.1 points, 9.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.5 steals in 33.0 minutes per game. As he enters a much better basketball situation, Young's statistical output may take a slight dip, but he's been one of the more consistent forwards in the league over the last several seasons, and that's unlikely to change.

Pacers' Thaddeus Young: Traded to Pacers for 20th pick in 2016 NBA Draft
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Young was traded Thursday to the Pacers in exchange for the 20th pick in the 2016 NBA Draft and a future second-round pick on Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Young should immediately slot in as the Pacers' starting power forward, a position they struggled to receive consistent production from a season ago. As a member of the woeful Nets last season, Young averaged 15.1 points, a career-high 9.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.5 steals across 33.0 minutes per game in his 73 appearances. His scoring may take more of a backseat now that he has to compete with Paul George and Jeff Teague for primacy in the offense, but Young figures to remain an useful fantasy contributor in the defensive categories. Young's acquisition paves the way for promising second-year big man Myles Turner to move over to his more natural center spot with Ian Mahinmi set to become a free agent this offseason.

Nets' Thaddeus Young: Ruled out for rest of season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Young (rest) has been ruled out for the final six games of the Nets' season, Mike Mazzeo of ESPN.com reports.

With the Nets eliminated from the playoffs and without anything to play for at this point, there's little need to risk further strain on their franchise cornerstones. As a result, both Young and Brook Lopez will sit out for maintenance-related reasons the rest of the way, affording more court time for Thomas Robinson, Henry Sims, and Chris McCullough down the stretch. Young finishes the campaign with one of the best showings of his career, as he turned in averages of 15.1 points (on 51.4% shooting), a personal-best nine boards, 1.9 assists, and 1.5 steals.

Nets' Thaddeus Young: Resting Friday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thaddeus Young will sit out of Friday's tilt with the Knicks in order to rest, Andy Vasquez of The Record reports.

Friday marks the second time in three games that Young will take the night off. The trend could continue through the rest of the season as the Brooklyn Nets have only six games left on the docket after Friday night. Thomas Robinson will grab the start in the veterans absence.

Nets' Thaddeus Young: Will start in Thursday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thaddeus Young (rest) will start in Thursday's game against the Cavaliers.

Young was rested and did not play in Tuesday's game against the Magic. His return means that Thomas Robinson will return to his role off the bench. He should be expected to resume a normal minutes load.
