Bitadze (knee) is available off the bench Friday against the Heat, Tony East of the West Indianapolis Community News reports. Despite dealing with a sore knee, Bitadze will continue seeing action. In his four bubble appearances, he's averaged 4.0 points, 1.8 rebounds and a combined 1.6 blocks-plus-steals across 11.3 minutes.
Bitadze is considered questionable for Friday's game against the Heat due to a sore left knee. The same issue kept Bitadze out of the Pacers' first three seeding games, so it's something to keep an eye on as Friday's contest approaches. If Bitadze is cleared to play, he could be set for increased minutes with Myles Turner resting.
Bitadze put up three points (1-4 FG, 1-2 FT), one rebound and one block in 11 minutes during Thursday's 114-99 loss to the Suns. Bitadze took to the court for the first time in Orlando but failed to have much of an impact. Despite flashes of upside this season, Bitadze is simply a situational player on most nights and can be left on the wire in the majority of fantasy formats.
Bitadze (knee) will be available for Thursday's game against the Suns, and coach Nate McMillan will "try to get him minutes," J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports. Bitadze will be active for the second game in a row, though he didn't see action the first time around. Coach McMillan seems likely to try out Bitadze as the backup five Thursday, however. With Domantas Sabonis (foot) sidelined, that's a spot in the frontcourt that needs some help.
Bitadze (knee) is questionable for Thursday's contest against the Suns. Bitadze was available for Tuesday's contest against the Magic, but he didn't get off the bench. Even if he's cleared again Thursday, it's unclear if he would play.
