McConnell registered 10 points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight assists, three rebounds and two steals in 17 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 127-121 win over the 76ers. McConnell didn't log many minutes, but he needed limited time to make a positive impact on the offensive side of the ball -- he registered the team's second-highest assist total, only behind Aaron Holiday. McConnell might not deliver 10-point or eight-assist performances often, but he provides decent value as a solid bench player for the Pacers.
McConnell finished with 14 points (6-9 FG, 2-2 FT), 11 assists, four rebounds and one steal in 15 minutes during Tuesday's 118-111 scrimmage loss to the Spurs. McConnell paced the team in dimes and delivered a superb stat line in limited minutes. With the statuses of Victor Oladipo (knee) and Domantas Sabonis (foot) up in the air and Jeremy Lamb (knee) out for the rest of the season, McConnell might be more heavily involved going forward if the aforementioned duo doesn't suit up.
McConnell had six points (3-4 FG), six assists, three rebounds and one block in 13 minutes during Sunday's 118-111 scrimmage win over the Mavericks. McConnell didn't see that many minutes, with fellow backup guard Edmond Sumner earning four more minutes than the veteran. Nevertheless, McConnell is likely to remain the team's primary backup at point guard given that Aaron Holiday, Malcolm Brogdon and Victor Oladipo are all among the starting five in the aftermath of the potentially season-ending injury to Domantas Sabonis (foot).
McConnell finished with 12 points (6-10 FG), five assists and one rebound across 15 minutes during Sunday's win over the Mavericks. McConnell reached double digits for the second time in three games while providing his usual steady hand running point for the second unit. Although he's one of the better bench players in the league, McConnell's contributions of 6.6 points, 5.0 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 18.9 minutes per game aren't enough to warrant him a roster spot in most formats.
McConnell will come off the bench Friday against the Bulls, Mike McGraw of the Chicago Daily Herald reports. With Malcolm Brogdon (hip) out and Victor Oladipo (knee) in, Aaron Holiday will get the nod next to Oladipo in the backcourt. McConnell could still see plenty of action for the shorthanded Pacers, however.
