Sabonis supplied eight points (3-8 FG, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, and one block in 17 minutes during Monday's 101-91 loss to the Timberwolves. Sabonis (ankle) returned from a one-game absence to deliver a near double-double in limited minutes. Sabonis had seen 29 and 22 minutes in the first and second games, respectively, and he was averaging 13.0 points, 14.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 0.5 steals in 25.5 minutes, so Monday's showing was merely mediocre. With that being said, fantasy owners should at least take comfort in the fact that his injury didn't linger and he was able to give it a go.
Sabonis (knee) will play in Monday's game against the Timberwolves, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports. Sabonis' absence from a knee injury will not extend beyond one game after he was sidelined for Saturday's outing against the Bucks. Kyle O'Quinn saw additional frontcourt minutes off the bench in Sabonis' absence Saturday, so he will likely return to playing minimal minutes off the bench.
Sabonis is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Timberwolves, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports. Sabonis missed the Pacers' last game after suffering an ankle injury Friday against the Bucks. If Sabonis is unable to go, Thaddeus Young and Myles Turner could see a larger workload than usual. More information on Sabonis' status should come out on Monday.
Sabonis (ankle) is out Saturday against the Nets. Sabonis suffered an ankle injury during Friday's game against Milwaukee. In Sabonis' stead, Thaddeus Young, Doug McDermott and Kyle O'Quinn could all see extra run.
Sabonis is listed as questionable for Saturday's matchup with the Nets due to a left ankle sprain. Sabonis followed an impressive season debut with another solid outing off the bench Friday. The third year big man posted 12 points (4-6 FG, 4-4 FT), 13 boards, two assists, and a steal across just 22 minutes. When healthy he is going to start pushing for some more minutes sooner than later. However, his status for Saturday's game remains uncertain. If he ultimately sits out look for Thaddeus Young and Myles Turner to be even more relied on, while Doug McDermott could get some more run in small-ball situations. Expect an update on his status closer to game-time.
