Pacers' Wesley Matthews: Plays 30 minutes in Monday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews managed eight points (2-10 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, and three assists in 30 minutes during Monday's 99-90 win over the Hornets.

Matthews drew the start in his Pacers debut, which is perhaps no surprise based on his strong fit with the starting five and history with coach Nate McMillan. The 32-year-old veteran will mostly be relied on for his defensive effort and perimeter shooting, and he remains a low-end option in standard leagues.

Pacers' Wesley Matthews: Confirmed starter Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews will start Monday's game against the Hornets, J. Michael of the Indy Star reports.

As expected, Matthews will move into the lineup at shooting guard, which will send Tyreke Evans back to the bench. The expectation is that Matthews will serve as the starter from here on out, as the veteran noted that the opportunity for an expanded role was the driving force in his decision to choose Indiana over other opportunities on the buyout market.

Pacers' Wesley Matthews: Slated to start for new squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Nate McMillan confirmed Sunday that Matthews would likely serve as a starter for the Pacers in his team debut Monday against the Hornets, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports. "He didn't come here to [sit on the bench]," McMillan said. "He had opportunities and that was part of it -- being a starter. We felt that we could bring him in as a starter."

After failing to find a team willing to take on the remaining salary on Matthews' contract prior Thursday's trade deadline, the Knicks waived the swingman, who quickly agreed to join the Pacers. Since he didn't officially clear waivers until Saturday, Matthews was formally added to the roster Sunday and took part in practice with his new team the same day. McMillan's comments suggest he feels comfortable deploying Matthews in a high-minute role with the top unit right away, meaning Tyreke Evans is set to reprise the bench role he's filled for much of the season. Evans, Cory Joseph, Edmond Sumner and Aaron Holiday are all candidates to notice playing-time reductions on some level now that Matthews is in the fold.

Pacers' Wesley Matthews: Officially joins Indiana
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews officially signed with the Pacers on Sunday.

The two sides agreed in principle shortly after Matthews was bought out by the Knicks on Thursday, but the signing didn't become official until after he cleared waivers Saturday. Matthews, who has started 44 of 45 games this season for Dallas and New York, practiced with the Pacers on Sunday and should be in uniform for Monday's game versus the Hornets. He's expected to eventually settle in as the team's starting shooting guard, though it's uncertain if he'll receive that assignment in his Pacers debut.

Pacers' Wesley Matthews: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews won't play in Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.

Matthews has cleared waivers, but hasn't officially signed with the Pacers. Assuming all goes as planned, he'll have a chance to make his Pacers debut on Monday against the Hornets.
