Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Sticking with Indiana
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sampson signed a one-year, fully guaranteed minimum contract with the Pacers on Sunday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Sampson was solid in a bench role for Indiana last season, averaging 4.6 points and 2.6 rebounds in 13.9 minutes while shooting 59.1 percent from the field. The 27-year-old figures to fill a similar role during the 2020-21 campaign.

Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Productive in bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sampson scored 10 points (5-6 FG) while adding three rebounds, an assist and a steal in 17 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 113-101 Game 1 loss against the Heat.

Sampson was one of four Pacers who scored in double digits during Tuesday's loss, but the small forward made the most of his limited time on the court since he logged the second-fewest minutes in the team during the playoff opener. Sampson only averaged 4.6 points during the regular season, however, so he's not expected to post these scoring figures on a regular basis moving forward.

Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Starting in place of Warren
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sampson will start Wednesday's contest against the Rockets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

With T.J. Warren (foot) out, Sampson will draw the start next to Myles Turner in the frontcourt. In Sampson's previous 10 starts this season, he's averaged 6.2 points and 3.5 rebounds across 20.4 minutes.

Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Set to scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sampson (back) said Tuesday that he's been cleared to participate in scrimmages, J. Michael of the Indy Star reports.

Sampson was dealing with a lower-back injury that limited him in recent practices, but all indications are that he'll be ready to play in the Pacers' first scrimmage on Thursday against Portland. Sampson played double-digit minutes in each of the Pacers' final four games before the shutdown in March.

Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Dealing with soft-tissue injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sampson has been limited in the Pacers' recent practices with what head coach Nate McMillan called a soft-tissue injury, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.

Sampson missed a few sessions last week due to the issue, but he was able to get back on the court Sunday in some capacity. The Pacers are likely just taking it easy with Sampson with the hope of avoiding a more serious setback before the team resumes its regular season in Orlando on Aug. 1 versus the 76ers. He should gradually ease back to full work in practice within the next few days to clear up any concern about his status for the resumption of the NBA season.

Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Excellent per-minute production
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sampson posted 14 points (5-6 FG, 4-6 FT), five rebounds, three assists and one steal across 17 minutes during Friday's 108-102 victory over the Bulls.

With T.J. Warren (lower leg), Malcolm Brogdon (quad) and Doug McDermott (toe) all sidelined, Sampson was given extra minutes. He responded well, putting together one of his best games of the season, tying his season-high 14 points and setting a season-high with three assists. With Victor Oladipo (knee) and Warren questionable for Sunday's game against the Mavericks, plus McDermott doubtful and Brogdon out, Sampson could once again be called on to play a bigger role than usual.

Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Available Friday vs. Bulls
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sampson (hip) is available for Friday's game against the Bulls, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Sampson was previously deemed questionable due to a hip injury, but he'll end up taking the court. With Doug McDermott (toe) out and T.J. Warren (lower leg) a game-time call, Sampson could see more action than usual.

March 5, 2020 04:28 PM
Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Questionable Friday vs. Bulls
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sampson is questionable for Friday's action against the Bulls due to a hip injury, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Sampson played 17 minutes Wednesday against the Bucks as Malcolm Brogdon (hip) left early due to a hip injury. Brogdon is doubtful for Friday's game, so if Sampson ends up being available, it's possible he'll have his number called again.

Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Logs seven minutes versus Raptors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sampson had zero points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and one rebound in seven minutes during Sunday's 127-81 loss to the Raptors.

Sampson saw his first action since Feb. 1 and has earned single-digit minutes in six of nine appearances since the beginning of January. The 26-year-old forward clearly isn't a mainstay in the rotation and can be avoided for fantasy purposes.

February 1, 2020 06:24 PM
Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Coming off bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sampson will come off the bench Saturday against the Knicks.

With Myles Turner (illness) healthy and back in the starting five, Sampson will resume his usual reserve role. In seven appearances off the bench this season, he's averaging 2.0 points and 1.0 rebound in 5.3 minutes.

January 29, 2020 05:28 PM
Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Starting again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sampson will make another start Wednesday against Chicago, Jeremiah Johnson of Fox Sports Indiana reports.

Sampson made a spot start Sunday against Portland in place of Myles Tuner (illness), and he'll do the same Wednesday as Turner remains on the shelf. Sampson ended up playing only 17 minutes Sunday, finishing with two points and three rebounds.

January 27, 2020 01:44 PM
Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Does little in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sampson (ankle) started at power forward and produced two points (0-3 FG, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds across 17 minutes in Sunday's 139-129 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Entering the lineup in place of the ill Myles Turner, Sampson received his second-most minutes since late November, but offered little production during his time on the floor. If Turner is declared ready to go for Wednesday's game against the Bulls, Sampson may fall out of the Pacers' rotation entirely.

January 26, 2020 08:04 PM
Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sampson will start Sundays's game against Portland, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.

Sampson was nursing an ankle injury, but he's been cleared to play and will be in the starting five with Myles Turner sidelined. As such, Sampson should be set for an increased workload. In his last start on Jan. 10 against Chicago, Sampson played 20 minutes.

January 25, 2020 07:12 PM
Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Could return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sampson (ankle) will be a game-time call for Sunday's matchup against Portland, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Sampson missed Friday's victory over Golden State due to a sprained left ankle, but he may be able to make a return Sunday. This month, he's appeared in five contests, averaging 3.2 points and 1.4 rebounds across 6.8 minutes.

January 24, 2020 09:08 PM
Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sampson (ankle) won't play Friday against Golden State, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.

Sampson was initially deemed questionable due to a left ankle sprain, and he's since been ruled out for the contest. This shouldn't have much of an impact on Indiana's rotation.

January 24, 2020 05:40 PM
Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Questionable with ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sampson is questionable for Friday's game against Golden State due to a left ankle sprain.

Sampson wasn't previously listed on the team's injury report, so it's unclear as to when he picked up this injury. The team figures to re-evaluate him during pregame warmups before another update emerges.

January 10, 2020 07:28 PM
Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sampson will draw the spot start at power forward for Friday's game against the Bulls, Jay Allen of Rip City Radio 620 reports.

Sampson will replace Domantes Sabonis (knee) in the starting lineup. He has averaged 6.6 points and 3.1 rebounds across 21.2 minutes in 7 starts this season.

Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sampson (back) will be available Tuesday against the Lakers, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.

A back issue has been hindering Sampson, and he hasn't appeared in a game since Nov. 16. However, he's overcome his injury and will be able to take the court if needed Tuesday.

December 17, 2019 01:52 PM
Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Questionable for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sampson is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Lakers due to lower back soreness.

Sampson was recalled from the G League earlier in the day, but a back issue may keep him out of Tuesday's action. He'll likely need to go through pregame warmups before a decision on his availability is made.

December 17, 2019 01:40 PM
Pacers' JaKarr Sampson: Brought back from G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pacers recalled Sampson (back) from the G League's Fort Wayne Mad Ants on Tuesday.

After missing nearly a month with a sore back, Sampson saw his first game action since Nov. 16 with Fort Wayne on Monday. The veteran forward looked plenty healthy in his 29-minute outing for the Mad Ants, putting up a team-high 24 points (10-18 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go with 11 boards, three blocks and two assists in a 125-124 win over the Wisconsin Herd. His promotion back to the NBA level implies that he'll be ready to go for the Pacers' game Tuesday versus the Lakers, though he's not guaranteed to be one of the 13 players Indiana makes active for the contest.
