  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Decent results off bench

    McConnell produced seven points (3-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt), two rebounds, five assists and one steal across 14 minutes during Wednesday's 132-131 loss to the Raptors.

    McConnell was held below 10 points for the third time in his last five appearances Wednesday, but he matched his second-highest assist total of the season during the narrow loss. Over his last five appearances, he's averaged 7.8 points, 3.6 assists and 2.2 rebounds in 15.8 minutes per game.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Leading scorer off bench

    McConnell ended Wednesday's 155-104 loss to the Celtics with a team-high 18 points (8-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and one steal across 28 minutes off the bench.

    The game got away from the Pacers very early, and the team was without Tyrese Haliburton (ankle), leading to a season-high workload for McConnell and production to match. The veteran guard managed only 12 total points in his first two games of the campaign, but if Haliburton isn't ready to return Friday against Cleveland, McConnell figures to be a popular DFS target.

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

    McConnell (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Knicks.

    McConnell will miss back-to-back contests to end the 2022-23 campaign. Across 75 appearances (six starts), the veteran point guard averaged 8.7 points, 5.3 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 20.3 minutes per game.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Questionable for season finale

    McConnell is questionable for Sunday's game against the Knicks with right hip soreness.

    McConnell is one of six Pacers players to nab a questionable tag for the contest and could be in line for a massive workload if he's able to suit up. In his last 11 games, McConnell has averaged 13.5 points, 7.1 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.1 steals over 23.9 minutes. If he sits, George Hill and Gabe York would likely handle the brunt of the point guard work.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Secures double-double off bench

    McConnell totaled 18 points (7-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 12 assists, five rebounds and two steals in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 138-129 loss to the Knicks.

    Tyrese Haliburton (ankle) has missed five straight games and could be done for the rest of the season, which has opened the door for McConnell's fantasy value to spike back up. He tied a season high with 12 assists Wednesday and helped out defensively with a couple of steals. Despite coming off the bench, the point guard is averaging 16.4 points and 7.6 assists per game in Haliburton's absence.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Just shy of triple-double off bench

    McConnell amassed 21 points (10-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt), nine rebounds, eight assists and one steal over 29 minutes during Friday's 121-117 win over the Thunder.

    McConnell took the offense upon himself Friday, finishing the night with a near-season-high 15 attempts from the field. When he wasn't scoring, he was doing his thing, distributing the ball to the tune of eight dimes, and he also crashed the glass, falling one board shy of reaching double-digits for just the second time in 2022-23. He should maintain a valuable role as long as Tyrese Haliburton (ankle) remains out, and the lottery-bound Pacers have little incentive to rush the star point guard back.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Thrives off bench in loss

    McConnell contributed 15 points (7-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt), seven assists, five rebounds and two steals across 28 minutes in Monday's 127-104 loss to the Mavericks.

    Though he didn't enter the starting five in place of Tyrese Haliburton (ankle), McConnell still picked up the largest share of minutes at point guard while starter Andrew Nembhard shifted over to the wing when the two shared the floor together. The Pacers haven't clarified their plans for Haliburton moving forward, but with the team currently sitting 3.5 games behind the Bulls for the final spot in the Eastern Conference Play-In Tournament, it wouldn't be surprising if Haliburton ended up being shut down to some degree. With that in mind, McConnell looks to be a strong speculative pickup for fantasy managers in need of steals and assists in particular.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Solid night off bench

    McConnell amassed 14 points (5-12 FG, 4-4 FT), one rebound, seven assists, one block and two steals across 22 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 118-114 victory over the Raptors.

    The Pacers relied on a balanced offense as six different players scored in double digits, but McConnell led the second unit. The veteran guard has scored 10 or more points in five of his last eight games, chipping in a double-double along the way, and he's supplying consistent fantasy value by averaging 11.4 points, 7.1 assists, 3.8 boards and 2.0 steals over that stretch in 24. minutes a night.
