  • Young recorded 17 points (8-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt), five rebounds, three steals, and two assists in 37 minutes during Monday's 105-97 win over the Magic. Young continues to be a pretty consistent contributor, albeit with a couple duds thrown in recently against the Rockets and Grizzlies. He is providing well-rounded production, with decent numbers in every area except blocks and free-throw percentage (while averaging less than one attempt for the first time in his career). As long as the Pacers remain relevant in the playoff race, Young seems poised to continue playing a major role.

  • Young posted 26 points (12-18 FG, 2-4 3Pt), six rebounds and four steals across 38 minutes during Wednesday's 124-107 win over the Cavaliers. After an average start to the season, with his best game coming during the team's season-opener, Young was excellent on both sides of the rock Wednesday. While his shots haven't been falling that well in general this year (46.3 percent after being over 50.0 percent the past two seasons), he's now averaging 12.5 shots per contest compared to just 9.3 during 2016-17. That volume should seemingly guarantee he eclipses last year's 11.0 points per game, assuming he can shoot at a respectable clip.

  • Young tallied 17 points (7-16 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks across 33 minutes during Wednesday's 140-131 win over the Nets. Though Young's output was likely inflated due to the extremely high-scoring nature of Wednesday's game, his production is certainly encouraging for fantasy owners who took a chance on Young this season. He's shown to be a solid two-way player in the past capable of grabbing boards and hitting threes -- a mold he stuck to Wednesday.

  • Young will sit out Monday's preseason matchup against the Pistons for rest, Pacers play-by-play announcer Scott Agness reports. Young will be joined on the sidelines by Victor Oladipo, Bojan Bogdanovic and Myles Turner, as the Pacers attempt to get a look at some of the younger guys on the roster ahead of regular-season cuts. All four players are likely to be back in the starting lineup for Tuesday's preseason finale vs. Maccabi Haifa.

  • Young posted nine points (4-6 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, two steals and an assist across 21 minutes in Friday's 106-102 preseason win over the Cavaliers. Young finds himself surrounded by new faces in the starting lineup, with only Myles Turner returning to his role from 2016. While Indiana's new-look lineup screams 'rebuild', it should be good news for Young owners, as he'll be relied upon to lead the team. the Pacers didn't give Young al whole lot of time on Friday, as they wanted to see what they had in new acquisition Domantas Sabonis and rookie T.J. Leaf, but Young's starting role isn't in jeopardy.
