Top Keifer Sykes News

  • Keifer Sykes: Waived by Indiana

    Sykes was waived by the Pacers on Wednesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Sykes averaged 5.6 points, 1.9 assists and 1.4 rebounds in 17.7 minutes across 32 appearances this season. In a corresponding move, the Pacers converted Terry Taylor and Duane Washington's two-way deals to multi-year contracts.

  • Pacers' Keifer Sykes: Moves back to bench

    Sykes will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

    Sykes contributed 16 points, four assists, one rebound and a steal across 34 minutes as a starter in Monday's loss to the Hawks, but he'll shift back to a reserve role on Wednesday as Terry Taylor joins the starting five. He's averaging 5.7 points, 2.0 assists and 1.5 rebounds in 18.4 minutes per game this season.

  • Pacers' Keifer Sykes: Set to start

    Sykes will start Monday's game against the Hawks, Scott Agness of Fieldhouse Files reports.

    The Pacers initially issued an incorrect lineup featuring Terry Taylor, but it will in fact be Sykes who gets the nod. Indiana will roll with Sykes, Tyrese Haliburton, Buddy Hield, Justin Anderson and Goga Bitadze.

  • Pacers' Keifer Sykes: Coming off bench

    Sykes will come off the bench Friday against the Cavaliers.

    As expected, Sykes heads to the bench as the Pacers debut a backcourt of Tyrese Haliburton, Buddy Hield and Chris Duarte. Sykes will presumably occupy a much smaller role going forward, especially once Malcolm Brogdon (Achilles) is healthy.

  • Pacers' Keifer Sykes: In starting five Sunday

    Sykes will start Sunday's game against the Cavaliers.

    The Pacers are already down Malcolm Brogdon (Achilles), but the team also agreed to trade Caris LeVert to the Cavs earlier Sunday, so Sykes will move into the lineup at one guard spot next to Chris Duarte. Both Sykes and Duane Washington could be set for increased roles going forward, particularly if Brogdon remains sidelined and the Pacers don't bring in another guard before the trade deadline. The only player Indiana landed in the LeVert deal is Ricky Rubio, who is out for the season due to a torn ACL.

  • Pacers' Keifer Sykes: Heads to bench

    Sykes isn't starting Monday's game against the Pelicans, Tony East of the West Indianapolis Community News reports.

    Sykes will shift to a bench role after starting each of the last two games for the Pacers. Caris LeVert enters the starting five at point guard in his place while Malcolm Brogdon (Achilles) continues his rehab.

  • Pacers' Keifer Sykes: Comes through in clutch Thursday

    Sykes chipped in 10 points (4-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt), four rebounds and three assists in 31 minutes during Thursday's 121-117 overtime win over the Warriors.

    Sykes was pressed into a starting role with Malcolm Brogdon (Achilles) and Caris LeVert (calf) both out of action. The rookie was relatively quiet in regulation, but he produced five points within the final two minutes of overtime to help the Pacers grab the upset victory. Both Brogdon and LeVert could return for Indiana's next game, so Sykes' late-game heroics shouldn't push him onto the fantasy radar.

  • Pacers' Keifer Sykes: Set to start Thursday

    Sykes is starting in Thursday's game against the Warriors.

    Sykes will start in his seventh game of the season as Malcolm Brogdon (Achilles) and Caris LeVert (calf) will miss Thursday's contest. As a starter, Sykes is averaging 12.0 points, 3.8 assists and 3.2 rebounds in 30.8 minutes.

  • Pacers' Keifer Sykes: Will come off bench

    Sykes will come off the bench for Monday's game against the Clippers, Mirjam Swanson of Southern California News Group reports.

    Sykes started Friday's loss against Phoenix but struggled through 18 minutes of action, finishing with just four points on 2-of-6 shooting. With Malcolm Brogdon (Achilles) out again Monday, the Pacers will go with Caris LeVert at point guard while Duane Washington gets the nod at shooting guard. Sykes should still be involved off the bench, but his minutes could be limited.

  • Pacers' Keifer Sykes: Returns to starting five

    Sykes is starting Friday's game against the Suns.

    Sykes came off the bench in Wednesday's loss to Boston and totaled two points in five minutes. However, he'll start for the sixth time in the last seven games since Malcolm Brogdon (Achilles) is unavailable Friday.

  • Pacers' Keifer Sykes: Moving back to bench

    Sykes will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against Boston, Celtics play-by-play man Sean Grande reports.

    With both Caris LeVert (COVID-19 protocols) and Malcolm Brogdon (Achilles) finally back in the lineup, Sykes' five-game run as the Pacers' starting point guard will come to an end. He made a name for himself with a couple of standout performances -- most notably, a 22-point, six-assist, four-three-pointer outing against the Knicks on Jan. 4 -- but Sykes will likely see a steep downturn in minutes going forward so long as Brogdon can stay healthy. Over his five starts, Sykes posted averages of 13.6 points, 4.6 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 2.0 three-pointers to go with an impressive 46/35/89 shooting line.

  • Pacers' Keifer Sykes: Ice cold from three

    Sykes had 11 points (5-13 FG, 1-8 3Pt), two rebounds, three assists and one steal in 23 minutes during Monday's 101-98 overtime loss to Boston.

    Sykes coughed up more playing time to Lance Stephenson and various wings Monday, as he struggled with his jumper. Despite back-to-back quiet games, Sykes has been a playmaker for the Pacers recently. The 28-year-old is averaging 13.6 points across five January contests.

  • Pacers' Keifer Sykes: Leads Pacers with 22 points in loss

    Sykes totaled 22 points (8-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six assists, four rebounds and one steal in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 104-94 loss to the Knicks.

    Sykes was fantastic in his second career start, putting up career-high numbers across the board. One positive over the past few weeks has been seeing the young players stepping up into larger roles. Of course, this kind of production has a very firm shelf-life, especially given both Malcolm Brogdon and Chris Duarte could be back on the court very soon. Until that happens, feel free to continue streaming Sykes if in need of some assists and triples.

  • Pacers' Keifer Sykes: Logs first start of career

    Sykes closed with 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-7 3Pt), three rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal over 35 minutes during Sunday's 108-104 loss to the Cavaliers.

    The rookie turned heads in the Summer League during the offseason, and with many teams seeking to shore up their rosters during the COVID-19 surge, the 27-year old is getting his shot in the bigs. He'll make an impact while Malcolm Brogdon (COVID-19 Protocols) and Caris LeVert (COVID19 Protocols) are sidelined.

  • Pacers' Keifer Sykes: Unable to make impact

    Sykes provided zero points (0-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt), one rebound and two assists across 10 minutes during Wednesday's 116-108 loss to the Hornets.

    Skyes was recently signed in place of Brad Wanamaker, as the Pacers look for a traditional point guard for the second unit. Unfortunately, Sykes failed to capitalize Wednesday. The 28-year-old Green Bay product is far removed from fantasy circles.

  • Pacers' Keifer Sykes: To sign with Pacers

    Sykes will sign with the Pacers on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    The Pacers will part ways with veteran guard Brad Wanamaker in order to clear a roster spot for Sykes, who parlayed a strong Summer League showing into a training camp invite from Indiana. While he was ultimately waived prior to the start of the regular season, the former Green Bay standout will now get the chance to make an impact at the NBA level. Sykes has appeared in 13 games for the G League's Fort Wayne Mad Ants, averaging 16.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 7.5 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.5 threes (on 35.1 percent shooting from beyond the arc) in 34.3 minutes per contest.

  • Keifer Sykes: Dishes out six dimes

    Sykes recorded 12 points (4-16 FG, 1-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six assists, three rebounds and a steal in 36 minutes during Sunday's G League loss to the Blue Coats.

    Sykes was quite inefficient from the floor in Sunday's defeat and converted just 11.1 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc. However, he still scored in double figures due to his high shot volume, and he led the Mad Ants in assists during the loss.

  • Keifer Sykes: Paces Mad Ants on scoreboard

    Sykes tallied 23 points (10-19 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in 32 minutes during Tuesday's G League win over Grand Rapids.

    Sykes didn't have any success from beyond the arc in Tuesday's victory, but he still dropped a team-high 23 points due to his ample shot volume. Although the 27-year-old was limited to just two points in Saturday's loss to the Wolves, he's now scored in double figures in nine of his first 10 appearances this year.

  • Keifer Sykes: Posts double-double in win

    Sykes logged 11 points (3-10 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 assists, five rebounds and three steals in 37 minutes during Saturday's G League win over the Skyforce.

    Sykes wasn't very efficient from the floor in Saturday's victory, but he still scored in double figures and led the Mad Ants in assists to post his second double-double of the season. He's had double-digit field-goal attempts in each of his first seven appearances of the year and is averaging 15.9 points, 8.3 assists and 3.6 rebounds in 34.4 minutes per game.

  • Keifer Sykes: Dishes out nine dimes

    Sykes generated 20 points (8-14 FG, 4-6 3Pt), nine assists, two steals and a rebound in 30 minutes during Tuesday's G League win over the Charge.

    Sykes fell just short of recording a double-double in Tuesday's blowout win, but he still tied for the second-highest scoring total on the team. He's now averaging 18.3 points, 8.7 assists and 3.7 rebounds in 32.6 minutes per game this season.
