McDermott scored 14 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT) in 14 minutes off the bench during Friday's 106-98 win at the Knicks.
McDermott didn't contribute in any other category aside from scoring and that has been case during most of the season. Even though he's a regular member of the rotation with a firmly entrenched role off the bench, McDermott needs to find a bit more consistency with his scoring touch. During his last 10 games, he has posted five double-digit efforts and five single-digit performances, averaging 11.2 points while shooting 49.4 percent from the field during that stretch.
McDermott scored 19 points (6-10 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding four rebounds in 23 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 119-118 loss to the Raptors.
The journeyman forward continues to provide the Pacers with a consistent shooting threat from the outside. McDermott has drained multiple threes in seven of the last 13 games, averaging 14.2 points, 2.9 boards, 2.5 threes and 1.3 assists over that stretch, but his minutes could dwindle as Victor Oladipo shakes off his rust.
McDermott supplied 19 points (6-11 FG, 6-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), one rebound and one assist in 29 minutes Sunday against Portland.
McDermott's now scored in double digits in six of his past seven games and is averaging 3.0 threes per contest at a 58.5 percent conversion rate during that span. While his shooting has certainly been impressive, McDermott remains unable to produce much elsewhere. His season-long averages of 10.5 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.0 threes and 1.1 assists per game make him a borderline play at best in standard formats.
McDermott posted 25 points (9-10 FG, 6-7 3Pt), two rebounds, an assist and a steal across 24 minutes in Friday's 129-118 win over the Warriors.
McDermott sunk six three-pointers for the second time this month, which helped crank the forward's scoring total up a notch. McDermott's found his way to 25 minutes on the court consistently throughout the season and is rounding out the month of January with some excellent stat lines due to his three-point prowess.
McDermott racked up 24 points (9-10 FG, 6-7 3Pt), two rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes during Sunday's 115-107 win over the Nuggets.
McDermott finished with a career high in made threes and a season high in scoring. Furthermore, he has gotten significantly better at attacking the basket and finishing in close when the occasion calls for it, making himself much more dangerous. Having scored in double figures in four of the last five games, McDermott will try to stay hot heading into Monday's matchup versus the Jazz.
McDermott posted 13 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt) and eight rebounds in 23 minutes during Friday's 116-114 win over the Timberwolves.
McDermott finished with a season high in rebounding while scoring in double figures for the third time in the last four tilts. He's only a viable option in deeper leagues, but McDermott has been much more effective in this his second year with the Pacers, posting a career high in threes per game.
McDermott posted 16 points (7-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 22 minutes during Friday's 116-105 victory over the Bulls
Friday marked one of McDermott's best games of the season, as he's scored 16 or more points just seven times this season. Plus, it was his first performance all year with one steal and one block. He's been a solid source of threes, with 24 performances with multiple triples, but that's about the only value he provides to a fantasy team on a regular basis.
McDermott posted 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-7 3Pt), six rebounds and an assist in 21 minutes during Friday's win over Sacramento.
McDermott drilled multiple threes for the 17th time this season while recording double figures for the 11th time. While he doesn't offer much besides his scoring prowess, the Creighton product's an efficient source of threes and could be worth a look in formats where long-distance shooting is relevant. Through 28 games, McDermott's averaging 9.4 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.8 threes and 1.1 assists while shooting 46.7 percent from the field, a career-best 47.2 percent from behind the arc and 77.3 percent from the line in 20.9 minutes.
McDermott scored 17 points (6-9 FG, 5-8 3Pt) while adding six rebounds in 30 minutes off the bench during Monday's 110-99 loss to the Clippers.
The five three-pointers were a season high for the 27-year-old journeyman, who's on his fifth club in six seasons. McDermott has scored in double digits in four straight games and is averaging a career-high 1.8 threes a game this year, but his lack of consistent production in other categories puts a firm cap on his fantasy value.
McDermott managed 14 points (5-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and two rebounds in 18 minutes during Wednesday's 107-100 win over the Thunder.
McDermott snapped a five-game streak of single-digit scoring, reaching double figures for the sixth time through 21 appearances. All six of those showings have been across the last 14 tilts, but McDermott isn't earning enough minutes or producing enough points to warrant attention outside of deeper formats.
McDermott produced just eight points and one block in 15 minutes during Friday's 105-104 victory over Atlanta.
McDermott nailed a pair of three-pointers Friday, ending with eight points in only 15 minutes. As long as the Pacers are even remotely healthy, McDermott is unlikely to see meaningful minutes outside of garbage time. Those in deeper formats could consider him as a potential three-point streamer but that is really going to be his ceiling across the board.
McDermott had 18 points (7-15 FG, 3-6 3PT, 1-1 FT) and five rebounds in 32 minutes during Friday's 111-102 loss at Houston.
McDermott is yet to start a single game for the Pacers this season, but he has turned things around after a slow start to the campaign. He has scored in double figures in four of his last five outings, emerging as a reliable scoring threat on Indiana's second unit.
McDermott compiled 18 points (7-13 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds and one assist in 26 minutes Sunday in the Pacers' 109-102 win over the Magic.
After topping out at eight points in the Pacers' first seven games, McDermott has found his touch from the field in the team's past three contests. He's reached the teens in scoring in each of those games, shooting 55.9 percent from the field and 56.3 percent from three-point range. McDermott will struggle to sustain either of those efficiency rates moving forward and may also lose minutes once Jeremy Lamb (ankle) is back in the fold, making it difficult to view him as anything more than short-term streaming option in fantasy.
McDermott tallied 14 points (6-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt), and one assist in 19 minutes during Friday's 112-106 victory over Detroit.
McDermott reached double-digits again Friday but added just one assist in 19 minutes of court time. He can be a nice source of three-pointers when he gets the playing time but is typically one of the more underwhelming fantasy players, even on his best nights. As soon as the Pacers start getting their players back, McDermott is likely to see a reduction in his playing time and those in 12-teams leagues need not waste any time thinking about picking him up.
McDermott produced 19 points (6-10 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and one steal in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 121-106 win over the Wizards.
McDermott matched Aaron Holiday for the third-most minutes on the team behind Malcolm Brogdon and T.J. Warren. Indiana switched things up and went small in this one, with Domantas Sabonis and Goga Bitadze splitting time at center and Myles Turner (ankle) still sidelined. As a result, combo forwards such as McDermott were a bit more involved than usual. It's unclear whether the Pacers will stick with a similar strategy if Turner isn't ready to return for Friday's matchup with the Pistons, but if the big man can't give it a go McDermott could once again be a sneaky option in daily leagues.
McDermott (foot) played 19 minutes off the bench and contributed eight points (3-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist Tuesday in the Pacers' 122-120 overtime loss to the Hornets.
McDermott's availability was uncertain leading up to tipoff after he carried a questionable tag into the contest, but he ended up seeing a normal minutes load off the bench. The forward's place in coach Nate McMillan's rotation looks secure at the moment, but he's not producing at a level that makes him particularly interesting for fantasy purposes. Through seven games, McDermott is averaging 5.4 points (on 34.1 percent shooting from the field), 1.9 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.1 triples in 17.7 minutes.
McDermott is questionable for Tuesday's game against Charlotte due to a sore left foot.
McDermott's name didn't pop up on the injury report until Monday night, so he appears to have come away with some soreness following Sunday's matchup against Chicago. He'll likely test his foot during shootaround before his availability is determined.
McDermott posted seven points (2-7 FG, 1-4 3PT, 2-3 FT), three rebounds and three assists in Sunday's 108-95 win against the Bulls.
In the first six games of the season, McDermott is currently converting on 32.4 percent of his field goals and 33.3 percent of his three-point shots, both well below his career averages (45.7 FG percentage and 40.3 three-point percentage). If the 27-year-old keeps up the poor shooting it is possible that the team might decrease his minutes in favor of other players including T.J. Leaf, who recorded a double-double (13 points, 15 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block) in the game Sunday.
McDermott compiled 14 points (5-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), and two rebounds in 16 minutes during Friday's 105-87 preseason victory over the Bulls.
McDermott took advantage of an understrength opponent, comming away with 14 points in 16 minutes. This is certainly not going to be the norm for McDermott who is unlikely to feature heavily in the Pacers rotation. Even when he is on the floor he really only contributes in two categories making him hard to roster, even in deeper formats.
McDermott will start Wednesday's game against Atlanta, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
McDermott will get the start at small forward in Wednesday's season finale against Atlanta. In 76 games this season, the Creighton product's averaging 7.3 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.1 threes in 17.2 minutes.
