Top Bennedict Mathurin News

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Positive contribution in spot start

    Mathurin registered 15 points (5-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), six rebounds, five assists and one steal over 35 minutes during Thursday's 129-115 victory over the Pistons.

    With Aaron Nesmith sidelined due to a lower leg injury, Mathurin was inserted into the starting lineup Thursday. Mathurin wasn't efficient with his shot but was able to contribute in other ways and bounced back nicely from his zero-point performance against the Hornets on Feb. 12. He should reprise his bench role once Nesmith returns to action, though it's unclear when that'll be.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Starting against Detroit

    Mathurin is in the starting lineup to face the Pistons on Thursday.

    Mathurin has seen most of his minutes off the bench this season, as he's far from productive when playing with the second unit, but he'll get the nod here since Aaron Nesmith (lower leg) is out. Mathurin is averaging 14.9 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game when deployed in a starting role this season.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Shines in Rising Stars event

    Mathurin (knee/illness) claimed Rising Stars MVP honors Friday after scoring four points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and adding two assists and one steal in 7:20 of court time in Team Jalen's 26-13 win over Team Detlef in the final.

    Team Jalen relied on a more balanced scoring effort to clinch the win in the finale, but Mathurin did more of the heavy lifting in a 40-35 win over Team Tamika in the semifinal earlier Friday, pouring in 18 points (7-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-5 FT) to go with two rebounds over 13 minutes. Mathurin had missed the Pacers' final game before the All-Star break Wednesday in Toronto due to a bruised right knee and an illness, but his ability to compete in two abbreviated exhibitions Friday as well as the hometown Team Pacers' win Saturday in the skills challenge implies that he'll be good to go when Indiana returns to action Feb. 22 versus the Pistons.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Out for Wednesday

    Mathurn has been ruled out for Wednesday's game in Toronto due to a bruised right knee and an illness, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    Mathurin will miss Indiana's final game heading into the All-Star break, giving him a full week to rest up until the Pacers' next game Feb. 22 versus the Pistons. With Mathurin sidelined Wednesday, the Pacers could lean more heavily on Ben Sheppard and Doug McDermott off the bench.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Battling bruised knee

    Mathurin is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game in Toronto due to a bruised right knee.

    Mathurin likely suffered the injury at some point in Monday's 111-102 loss to Charlotte, and the bruised knee may explain in part why he was held to 15 minutes; he had played at least 20 minutes in all but one of his previous 17 outings. Though Mathurin looks as though he'll travel with the Pacers to Toronto, a decision on his status for the game may not be made until after the medical team has a chance to assess him during shootaround Wednesday morning.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Fading significantly

    Mathurin finished Monday's 111-102 loss to the Hornets with zero points (0-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes.

    Mathurin found no rhythm and was scarcely incorporated into the offense Monday. Across three games since the exodus of Buddy Hield to Philadelphia, Mathurin has combined for 15 points on 4-for-21 shooting. Mathurin can boom on any given night, but he may be the odd man out in Indiana.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Available for Thursday

    Mathurin (illness) will be available to play Thursday against the Warriors.

    Mathurin will return from a one-game absence, which will likely result in fewer minutes for Ben Sheppard. Mathurin may have gotten a little boost at the trade deadline with the departure of Buddy Hield, so it'll be interesting to see if he's more aggressive in the second unit moving forward.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Iffy against Golden State

    Mathurin (illness) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game versus the Warriors.

    Mathurin is in danger of missing his second straight game Thursday due to a stomach ailment. If Mathurin is ultimately ruled out, Andrew Nembhard, Buddy Hield and Ben Sheppard should continue to receive increased playing time.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Ruled out Tuesday

    Mathurin (illness) will not play Tuesday versus Houston, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    Mathurin will be sidelined due to a stomach ailment. Mathurin has come off the bench for seven of his past eight appearances, but his void will likely be filled by extra usage for Andrew Nembhard, Buddy Hield and Ben Sheppard.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Battling an illness

    Mathurin is questionable for Tuesday's game against Houston due to an illness.

    Mathurin's addition to the injury report within three hours of Indiana's 7 p.m. ET game versus the Rockets makes his status extremely murky. He is joined by Tyrese Haliburton (hamstring) and Jalen Smith (back) as questionable on the Pacers' injury report.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Coming off bench

    Mathurin isn't starting Sunday's game against the Hornets.

    Mathurin has been cleared to suit up for a second consecutive game Sunday, but he'll retreat to the bench after joining the starting lineup for Friday's loss to Sacramento. Over 33 bench appearances this year, he's averaged 14.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 26.4 minutes per game.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Cleared for action

    Mathurin (toe) will play Sunday versus Charlotte.

    Mathurin will suit up for a second consecutive game following a two-game absence due to a toe sprain. He logged a full 37-minute workload in Friday's loss to Sacramento, putting him on track for no restrictions Sunday. Tyrese Haliburton (hamstring/back) is a game-time decision, which is a swing factor for the upside of Indiana's offense holistically.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Questionable against Hornets

    Mathurin is questionable to face the Hornets on Sunday due to a right toe sprain.

    Mathurin has been battling a toe issue since the end of January, missing two games as a result. However, he was able to play 37 minutes Friday against the Kings and erupted for 31 points (10-14 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 9-10 FT), five rebounds, four assists and two steals.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Leads all scorers in loss

    Mathurin had 31 points (10-14 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 9-10 FT), five rebounds, four assists and two steals across 37 minutes during Friday's 133-122 loss to Sacramento.

    Mathurin moved back into the starting lineup, leading all scorers with 31 points in 37 minutes. The Pacers made several changes to their opening unit, with Mathurin joined by T.J. McConnell and Isaiah Jackson. It is unclear whether Mathurin will stick as a starter moving forward, but given his ability to be a high-volume scorer, he is worth grabbing if he was dropped in your league.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Cleared to play Friday

    Mathurin (toe) is available for Friday's game against Sacramento, Tony East of SI.com reports.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Questionable for Friday

    Mathurin (toe) is questionable for Friday's game against the Kings.

    Mathurin has missed the last two games due to a toe injury, and it's not yet clear whether he'll be available for the second half of a back-to-back set Friday. If he's sidelined, Andrew Nembhard will likely see additional run for Indiana.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Won't play Thursday

    Mathurin (toe) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Knicks, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.
