McConnell finished Saturday's 133-120 loss to Philadelphia with 12 points (4-8 FG, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, six assists, one block and one steal across 25 minutes. After returning from a wrist injury Tuesday and coming off the bench, McConnell got the start Saturday and supplied solid production alongside Tyrese Haliburton in the Pacers backcourt. Whether in the starting five or on the second unit, McConnell will likely split the work again with Duane Washington during Indiana's season finale Sunday in Brooklyn.
McConnell is starting Saturday's game against the 76ers, Tony East of WTHR Channel 13 Indianapolis reports. McConnell will make his seventh start of the year during the second-to-last game of the regular season. Across his first six starts, he averaged 11.5 points, 4.3 rebounds and 5.2 assists in 32.3 minutes per game.
McConnell (wrist) played 15 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's 131-122 loss to the 76ers, finishing with two points (0-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists and four rebounds. Though the Pacers entered play Monday at 29 games under .500, McConnell avoided becoming the fifth player to be ruled out for the final three games of the season. Instead, he made his surprise return from a 55-game absence, garnering only a small role behind starting point guard Tyrese Haliburton. So long as Haliburton is able to play in the Pacers' final two games of the season, McConnell isn't expected to see his playing time ramp up dramatically from Tuesday.
McConnell (wrist) is available for Tuesday's game against the 76ers, Tony East of WTHR Channel 13 Indianapolis reports. Surprisingly, the Pacers will opt to bring McConnell back for the final three games of this season after he last played Dec. 1. He's not expected to see significant minutes, as the Pacers are still focusing on developing younger players.
McConnell (wrist) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the 76ers. McConnell hasn't suited up since Dec. 1, but he appears to be making progress and may return for the final week of the regular season. However, even if he is available, it's unclear how much playing time he'd garner, as the Pacers have already been eliminated from the playoffs and have younger guards (Tyrese Haliburton, Duane Washington, Keifer Sykes) to give minutes to.
