Top T.J. McConnell News

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Provides spark off bench Thursday

    McConnell registered 16 points (7-11 FG, 2-2 3Pt), six rebounds, five assists, one block and two steals over 18 minutes during Thursday's 129-115 victory over Detroit.

    McConnell paced the Pacers bench in scoring, assists and steals while co-leading in rebounds and blocks with Obi Toppin. McConnell played a key role for the Pacers when All-Star Tyrese Haliburton missed time with a hamstring injury, and the former will continue to provide meaningful minutes off the bench down the stretch. McConnell is averaging 10.3 points on 59.4 percent shooting, 3.3 rebounds, 5.6 assists and 1.0 steals over 19.0 minutes per game in February.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Productive from second unit

    McConnell ended Saturday's 125-111 victory over the Knicks with 16 points (8-10 FG), four rebounds, six assists and one steal over 18 minutes off the bench.

    Tyrese Haliburton appears to be fully recovered from his hamstring injury, but McConnell is still providing solid numbers from the Pacers' backcourt. Over four games since returning to the second unit, the veteran guard is averaging 10.8 points, 6.3 assists, 3.3 boards and 0.8 steals in 20.0 minutes a contest.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Back to bench

    McConnell won't start Sunday's game against the Hornets.

    Tyrese Haliburton will return to the starting lineup after coming off the bench for the second night of a back-to-back set Friday. However, Haliburton remains limited while working his way back to full strength following a lengthy absence due to a hamstring injury, so McConnell should still see a decent role off the bench.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Starting at point guard

    McConnell will start at point guard in Friday's game against the Kings, Scott Agness of FieldhouseFiles.com reports.

    Tyrese Haliburton (hamstring) is expected to be available off the bench, but it remains to be seen how many minutes he'll log. As a result, McConnell figures to see an expanded workload at point guard.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Has seven assists in start

    McConnell finished Friday's 133-122 loss to Sacramento with nine points (3-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, seven assists and two steals over 23 minutes.

    McConnell returned from injury, sliding into the starting lineup at the expense of Tyrese Haliburton. The Pacers continue to do weird stuff with their lineup, making streaming a hard task. Haliburton remains on a minutes limit, and while he should probably not even be playing, it appears he will remain limited for the foreseeable future. If McConnell gets the starting nod again Sunday, he makes for a viable stream option for anyone needing assists and steals.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Available Thursday

    McConnell (illness) will be available to play Thursday against the Knicks, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    McConnell is set to return from a two-game absence, and he'll help back up Tyrese Haliburton, who remains on a minutes limit for Thursday evening. With the main guys in Indiana's backcourt healthy, McConnell isn't the most attractive target in standard fantasy leagues.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Questionable for Thursday

    McConnell (illness) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Knicks.

    McConnell was unavailable for Tuesday's game against the Celtics after missing Sunday's win over the Grizzlies due to personal reasons. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available for the first half of a back-to-back set Thursday, but Andrew Nembhard is a candidate to see increased run if McConnell is sidelined once again.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Out sick Tuesday

    McConnell won't play Tuesday against Boston due to an illness.

    After sitting out Sunday's 116-110 win over the Grizzlies due to a personal matter, McConnell returned to practice Monday, but he'll end up missing a second straight game after falling ill. With Tyrese Haliburton (hamstring) tentatively on track to return from a five-game absence Tuesday, Andrew Nembhard will likely move to the bench and should inherit McConnell's role as the team's backup point guard.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Off injury report

    McConnell (personal) no longer carries an injury designation for Tuesday's game against the Celtics.

    McConnell missed Sunday's matchup with the Grizzlies due to personal reasons, but he should be good to go Tuesday. Over his last 16 games, McConnell is averaging 8.8 points, 6.5 assists, 2.4 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 0.1 blocks through 19.9 minutes.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Ruled out Sunday

    McConnell (personal) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.

    McConnell was a late addition to the injury report Sunday morning due to a personal matter and will ultimately join Tyrese Haliburton (hamstring) as unavailable. Andrew Nembhard should continue to start at point guard, but Indiana will lack ball-handling depth behind him, leaving Bennedict Mathurin, Ben Sheppard and Buddy Hield as candidates for increased roles.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Iffy to play Sunday

    McConnell is dealing with a personal matter and is questionable to play Sunday versus Memphis.

    McConnell being a late addition to the injury report doesn't bode well for his availability leading up to Sunday's 3:30 p.m. ET opening tip. Tyrese Haliburton (hamstring) remains out, so Andrew Nembhard could be due for an extensive workload as the Pacers' starting point guard if McConnell isn't available Sunday.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Pops for 17 off bench

    McConnell closed with 17 points (7-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound and seven assists over 21 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 114-109 loss to the Nuggets.

    With Tyrese Haliburton (hamstring) unavailable, Andrew Nembhard got the start in the Pacers' backcourt, but McConnell saw a healthy workload and produced his best scoring night from the second unit since he dropped 20 versus the Heat back on Dec. 2. The 31-year-old has lost confidence in his three-point shot, however -- Tuesday's make was his first from beyond the arc since Nov. 22, and he attempted only 11 threes in the 25 games between those buckets.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Returns to bench

    McConnell will come off the bench Tuesday against Denver, Scott Agness of FieldhouseFiles.com reports.

    McConnell will lead the second unit, while Andrew Nembhard and Buddy Hield start in Indiana's backcourt Tuesday. McConnell has averaged 19.6 minutes per game in his last five appearances off the bench.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Gets starting nod

    McConnell will be in the starting lineup Sunday against the Suns, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    McConnell will return to the starting lineup for the second time in three games due to Tyrese Haliburton (hamstring) being sidelined. In his two starts this season, McConnell has averaged 15.0 points, 8.0 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 29.5 minutes per game.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Moves to bench

    McConnell will move back to the bench for Friday's game against Portland, Tony East of SI.com reports.

    No surprises here, as Tyrese Haliburton (hamstring) is back in the mix for the Pacers. However, with Andrew Nembhard (back) sidelined, McConnell will likely have a sizable role with the second unit. McConnell was terrific in Thursday's win over the Kings, scoring 20 points (9-14 FG, 2-3 FT) with one rebound, 10 assists and one steal across 33 minutes.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Posts double-double in spot start

    McConnell chipped in 20 points (9-14 FG, 2-3 FT), one rebound, 10 assists and one steal across 33 minutes during Thursday's 126-121 victory over Sacramento.

    Indiana was without Tyrese Haliburton (hamstring) and Andrew Nembhard (back) on Thursday, leaving McConnell as the club's only true point guard. The veteran stepped up with a season-high 33 minutes in just his second start of the campaign, and he finished with his third double-double and second contest of 20-plus points. McConnell will almost certainly slide back to a reserve role when Haliburton and/or Nembhard are ready to return, at which point his fantasy appeal will rest almost entirely on his ability to hand out assists and pick up a steal or two most nights.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Moves into first unit

    McConnell will start Thursday's game against the Kings.

    Tyrese Haliburton (hamstring), Pascal Siakam (trade pending) and Aaron Nesmith (shins) are all sitting out Thursday, so McConnell is likely looking at a massive workload for the shorthanded Pacers. He's made only one start this season so far, and he produced 10 points, four rebounds, six assists, one block and two steals in that contest.
