The veteran will get the day off before the team travels to Vegas for Friday's game against the Bulls.

Joe Young: Taking talents to China
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young is expected to finalize a one-year, $1.3 million contract with the Nanjing Monkey King of the Chinese Basketball Association in the coming days, Sportando reports.

Young becomes the second player from the Pacers' 2017-18 roster to bolt for China this offseason, following in the footsteps of center Al Jefferson, who inked a deal with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers in July. The combo guard, who appeared in 59 games for the Pacers and averaged 3.9 points and 1.2 rebounds in 10.5 minutes per contest during his third NBA campaign, could look to return to North America once Nanjing's season ends in February or March.

Joe Young: Will enter free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young had his team option declined by the Pacers on Friday and will become a free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

In three years as Pacers, Young never managed to break into the regular rotation, starting in just one game over the course of his young career and never averaging more than 10 minutes per game over the course of a season. He'll now be on the open market as a free agent, where he will look to latch onto a team's roster before the start of training camp.

Pacers' Joe Young: Questionable for Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young is dealing with a sinus infection and is listed as questionable for Friday's Game 3 against the Cavaliers.

Considering it's not injury related, Young shouldn't be on the sidelines for long, though there's certainly a chance he doesn't feel healthy enough to take the court in Game 3. Look for his status to be updated after Friday's morning shootaround and even if Young is unable to play, his absence wouldn't have an impact on the regular rotation. Young has yet to see the floor across two playoff games.

Pacers' Joe Young: Three points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young recorded three points (1-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and two assists during Friday's 92-73 loss to the Raptors.

Young's two assists Friday were his highest total since dishing out two dimes on Mar. 4. The former Oregon Duck is averaging 3.8 points and 0.7 assists over 52 games played this season.

Pacers' Joe Young: Healthy scratch again during Wednesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young did not see the floor during Wednesday's 96-92 loss to the Pelicans.

Young has not played a single minute in five of the last six games. After averaging 5.3 points, 1.9 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 1.1 threes, and 0.6 steals in 16.7 minutes per game during February, Young has mostly been buried on the bench here in March.

Pacers' Joe Young: Knocks down five treys versus Wizards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young scored 17 points (6-10 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 0-1 FT) to go along with two rebounds and one steal across 28 minutes during Monday's 111-102 loss to the Wizards.

Young saw a vastly increased role with Victor Oladipo (illness) and Darren Collison (knee) both sidelined, finishing with his second-highest scoring output of the season. He as particularly deadly from beyond the arc, setting a new career high with five treys. Young's role should shrink when Olidapo returns, but perhaps this performance will earn him some extra ruin during Collison's expected absence of at least two weeks.

Pacers' Joe Young: Heading back to bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young will come off the bench for Friday's contest against the Cavaliers, Jeremiah Johnson of Fox Sports Indiana reports.

Young drew a spot start Wednesday due to Darren Collison being absent from the game as a result of a personal matter. With Collison back, Young will seemingly regress back into his normal role. On the season, he's averaging 4.0 points across 9.7 minutes per game.

Pacers' Joe Young: Set for first career start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young will pick up his first career start Wednesday against the Suns, freelance journalist Mark Montieth reports.

The Pacers are going to be without Darren Collison (personal) on Wednesday and while Cory Joseph was the favorite to start in his place, it will actually be Young that gets the call with the first unit. Young has averaged just 8.9 minutes so far this season, so he should see a sizable increase in miutes with the promotion to the top unit. He'll be a risky punt-play option for Wednesday's slate, though with both Joseph and Lance Stephenson available off the bench, that will likely severely limit Young's upside.

Pacers' Joe Young: Scores career-high 20 in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young scored 20 points (7-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding five rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 107-90 loss to the Timberwolves.

The scoring was a career high, while the court time was a season high for the little-used 25-year-old. Unless Young finds a steadier role in the Pacers' backcourt, don't expect a repeat performance any time soon.

Pacers' Joe Young: Scores three points Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young collected three points (1-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt) across nine minutes during Sunday's game against the Spurs.

Young's nine minutes were the most he's played in a single game this season. He averaged 4.1 minutes last season and will likely receive similar minutes this season since he's buried on the depth chart.

Pacers' Joe Young: Fails to play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 87-81 loss to the Knicks on Tuesday.

Young has failed to play in any of the Pacers' last four games and looks to be no better than fourth on the depth chart at point guard, which will continue to keep him out of the rotation most nights. It will take at least an injury or two for Young to even see consistent minutes off the bench.

Pacers' Joe Young: Doesn't crack rotation Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (coach's decision) failed to see the court in a 110-106 loss to the Spurs on Monday.

Young is fourth on the depth chart at point guard behind Jeff Teague, Rodney Stuckey and Aaron Brooks, which has limited him to only four low-minute appearances since being recalled from the D-League's Fort Wayne Mad Ants in late January. As long as at least two of the players above him on the depth chart are healthy, Young won't regularly crack coach Nate McMillan's rotation.

Pacers' Joe Young: Recalled from D-League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was recalled Monday from the D-League's Fort Wayne Mad Ants.

A fringe rotation player for the Pacers this season, Young received an extended opportunity to log some in-game action last week as part of the D-League Showcase. The second-year point guard is now back with the Pacers, but since he looks like the fourth-string option at the position right now behind Jeff Teague, Aaron Brooks and Monta Ellis, Young isn't likely to see the floor Monday against the Knicks if that game is competitive.

Pacers' Joe Young: Assigned to D-League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young was assigned Monday to the D-League's Fort Wayne Mad Ants, Nate Taylor of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Young has held only a minor reserve role for the Pacers this season, so heading to the D-League -- if only for a brief time -- will afford him some much-needed minutes. It's the first D-League assignment of the season for Young, who is averaging 5.4 minutes per game over his 20 appearances this season with the parent club.

Pacers' Joe Young: Available to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (illness) will be available to play in Monday's matchup with the Bulls, Nate Taylor of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Young is dealing with the stomach flu, but after going through pregame warmups, feels good enough to take the court. That said, Young has seen just three minutes over the Pacers' last 10 games and is not a part of the team's regular rotation, so he can continue to be avoided in the majority of fantasy leagues until he earns a bigger role.

Pacers' Joe Young: Questionable Monday with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young is dealing with an illness and is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Bulls.

Young is battling a stomach virus, so the Pacers may wait until later in the afternoon before reaching a resolution on the second-year player's status. Even if he's deemed available Monday, Young isn't a part of coach Nate McMillan's rotation, so don't expect him to see the court if the game is competitive.

Pacers' Joe Young: Scores 12 points in garbage time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young put up 12 points (5-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three steals and two rebounds across 10 minutes in Monday's 142-106 loss to the Pacers.

Young hit double figures in the scoring column for the second time this season, but all of his production came in garbage time, as the Pacers fell behind big by the second quarter. With the Pacers at full health in the backcourt, Young will struggle to see the court outside of blowouts like Monday.

Pacers' Joe Young: Questionable Wednesday due to illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hawks due to illness.

The Pacers will likely wait until closer to game time to officially rule Young in or out. The second-year point guard hasn't been a major factor in the rotation through the first month of the season, playing double-digit minutes in just one game since the start of November. If Young is held out Wednesday, it likely wouldn't affect the manner in which coach Nate McMillan distributes the minutes in the backcourt.

Pacers' Joe Young: Plays 20 minutes in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young received 20 minutes in Saturday's 118-101 loss to the Bulls, producing 11 points (4-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three assists and two rebounds.

With Aaron Brooks (knee) and Rodney Stuckey (hamstring) sidelined, Young stepped in as the backup to starting point guard Jeff Teague. Though Teague was held scoreless in the contest and is shooting just 20 percent from the field to begin the season, he's at little risk of losing significant playing time, and the 20 minutes Young received Saturday figure to represent the upper bound of what the second-year point guard will play while Brooks and Stuckey are out. Young benefited from extended run largely because the Pacers were down double digits at halftime.
