  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: Extension contracts stall

    Shams Charania of The Athletic reports that contract extensions between Hield and the Pacers have stalled, so Indiana has begun trade conversations.

    Hield started 73 of 80 games for Indiana last season, averaging 16.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.2 steals in 31.0 minutes per game. He shot 42.5 percent from deep, the second-highest mark of his career. However, the Pacers added Bruce Brown, Jarace Walker and Obi Toppin to their wing group this offseason, and it appears Hield is the odd man out. Hield has one year remaining on the four-year, $94 million extension he signed with the Kings in 2019.

  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: Middle-of-the-road effort in return

    Hield had 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, five assists and two steals across 24 minutes during Friday's 121-117 win over the Thunder.

    Hield's return from a two-game absence didn't yield any exceptional results, but it wasn't bad, either. Hield notched five of his 13 points early in the fourth quarter to give the Pacers a bit of an offensive boost, but he wasn't part of the team's late-game equation. Hield appears bound to play off the bench the remainder of the way after starting the first 73 contests of the season, but that amounts to just four more games at this point.

  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: Left off injury report

    Hield (illness) isn't on the injury report for Friday's game versus the Thunder.

    Hield appears good to go Friday after missing the previous two games with a non-COVID illness. His return will likely result in decreased minutes Bennedict Mathurin and Jordan Nwora.

  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: Ruled out Wednesday

    Hield has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Bucks due to a non-COVID illness.

    Hield was initially left off the Pacers' injury report after missing Monday's game against Dallas due to his illness, but he'll sit for a second consecutive matchup. Andrew Nembhard and Bennedict Mathurin are candidates to see increased run once again.

  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: Ruled out with illness

    Hield won't play Monday versus the Mavericks due to an illness.

    Hield's next chance to play will be Wednesday against the Bucks. The Pacers could also be without Tyrese Haliburton (ankle), so we could see a lot of Jordan Nwora, who is coming off a 33-point eruption against the Hawks on Saturday.
