  • Pacers' Obi Toppin: Gets first double-double of season

    Toppin produced 23 points (10-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal over 33 minutes during Friday's 133-131 victory over Phoenix.

    Toppin lead the Pacers' bench in scoring Friday and registered his first double-double of the season and the fourth of his four-year career. It's the first time since Dec. 21 against the Grizzlies that Toppin has scored 20-plus points in a game, but he continues to score efficiently, as he's shooting 56.9 percent from the field (including 43.5 percent from three) in January.

  • Pacers' Obi Toppin: Available to play

    Toppin (calf) is available to play in Thursday's game against the Kings, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    Toppin was unable to practice Wednesday and was carrying a questionable tag prior to this update. The Pacers are going to be very shorthanded Thursday, so Toppin could see a healthy amount of minutes if he's able to power through his calf issue.

  • Pacers' Obi Toppin: Cleared to play

    Toppin (calf) will play in Friday's game against the Trail Blazers, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Starreports.

    Toppin will play through a second straight questionable tag and has yet to miss a game this season. With Pascal Siakam making his debut Friday, Toppin's minutes could trend down going forward.

  • Pacers' Obi Toppin: Iffy against Portland

    Toppin (calf) is listed as questionable for Friday's game versus the Trail Blazers.

    Toppin has yet to miss a game this season but could sit out the second leg of Indiana's back-to-back Friday due to a left calf strain. If Toppin is unable to suit, Jalen Smith and Jarace Walker are candidates to receive increased playing time.

  • Pacers' Obi Toppin: Officially questionable

    Toppin (calf) is listed as questionable ahead of Thursday's matchup with the Kings.

    Toppin missed Wednesday's practice with a left calf strain and is at risk of missing Thursday's contest. Considering the game is the opening leg of a back-to-back, the Pacers could exercise caution with Toppin's injury. If that's the case, Jalen Smith and Jarace Walker could see more action.

  • Pacers' Obi Toppin: Dealing with calf issue

    Toppin didn't practice Wednesday due to a calf issue, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    The extent of the injury remains unclear, but Toppin will likely wind up on the Pacers' injury report for Thursday's game in Sacramento, which should drop Wednesday night. Despite being moved to the bench at the end of December, Toppin has still played well in a reserve role, averaging 10.3 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 22.3 minutes over his last 12 appearances (one start).

  • Pacers' Obi Toppin: Bumped to second unit

    Toppin will move to the bench for Friday's game against Atlanta, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    This is an expected move for the Pacers, with Jalen Smith (back) returning from a two-game absence. Toppin has fared well in January, posting averages of 12.2 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 2.3 three-pointers.

  • Pacers' Obi Toppin: Will start sans Smith

    Toppin will start Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    Jalen Smith (back) was a late scratch, so Toppin will start at power forward. Toppin has started 27 games this season, averaging 11.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.1 steals-plus-blocks in 23.7 minutes.

  • Pacers' Obi Toppin: All-around game off bench

    Toppin totaled 15 points (5-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and one steal in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 142-130 win over the Bucks.

    Toppin put forth a balanced showing off the bench, leading the team in rebounds while ending as one of seven players with a double-digit point total in a winning effort. Toppin has hauled in eight or more rebounds in four games this year and has surpassed the 15-point mark on 10 occasions.

  • Pacers' Obi Toppin: Joins second unit

    Toppin will come off the bench for Tuesday's game against Houston.

    Toppin exits the starting lineup for just the second time this season, giving way to Jalen Smith. Smith ramping up is a central factor in Toppin heading to the second unit, but Indiana could also be seeking a different look defensively, as Andrew Nembhard and Aaron Nesmith join Tyrese Haliburton and Myles Turner to round out Tuesday's lineup.

  • Pacers' Obi Toppin: Top scorer in loss

    Toppin amassed 22 points (8-14 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist and two steals over 28 minutes during Thursday's 116-103 loss to Memphis.

    Toppin led all Pacers in scoring and shots made while hauling in a handful of rebounds and notching a pair of steals in a losing effort. Toppin has surpassed the 20-point mark on five occasions this year, doing so for the first time since scoring 20 points Dec. 2 against Miami. Toppin has hauled in five or more rebounds in four contests this year.

  • Pacers' Obi Toppin: Solid in lopsided defeat

    Toppin logged 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three rebounds, four assists and two blocks over 30 minutes during Monday's 151-127 loss to the Clippers.

    Toppin was efficient and balanced in his scoring Tuesday, albeit in the context of a blowout and crutched by playing in Indiana's league-best offense. Nonetheless, Toppin has failed to hit double-digit scoring in three of his last five games, so he remains one of the less flashy components of the Pacers' rotation despite his athleticism.

  • Pacers' Obi Toppin: Limited impact Saturday

    Toppin notched 13 points (5-11 FG, 3-7 3Pt) and two rebounds over 29 minutes during Saturday's 123-109 loss to the Lakers.

    Toppin scored in double digits for the fifth straight game despite the fact he wasn't particularly efficient with his shot, and as has been the case in most contests, he didn't do much in other categories. He remains a decent fantasy asset across all categories due to his starting role and offensive contributions, but his lack of productivity in other areas certainly limits his upside.
