Sabonis accrued 19 points (8-15 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 11 rebounds, 10 assists and two steals across 32 minutes in Thursday's 142-115 loss to the Wizards.
Although Sabonis turned in an excellent performance, it wasn't enough to offset the Wizards' overwhelming offensive output. Without Caris LeVert, the Pacers simply didn't have enough offensive potency in the play-in tournament, and Sabonis couldn't handle the load on his own.
Sabonis recorded 14 points (7-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt), 21 rebounds, nine assists, a steal and a block across 33 minutes in Tuesday's play-in win over the Hornets.
Sabonis picked up where he left off in the regular season, as he pulled down at least 20 boards for the second time in his last five games and also notched his fifth double-double in his last six appearances. Expect Sabonis to play a pivotal role for the Pacers in their decisive play-in matchup at the Wizards on Thursday.
Sabonis (quad) will suit up for Tuesday's play-in game versus the Hornets, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Sabonis seemed likely to make every effort to avoid missing postseason action, and it appears he will do just that. Look for him to play his usual role anchoring the Pacers' frontcourt as he looks to back up his 25-point, 16-board effort in the regular-season finale against Toronto with another strong showing Tuesday.
Sabonis is questionable for Tuesday's play-in game against the Hornets with a bruised left quadriceps.
The 25-year-old was questionable for Sunday's season finale with a knee injury and ended up putting up 25 points (12-18 FG, 1-2 3Pt), 16 rebounds, five assists and three steals in 39 minutes, but he apparently picked up the quadriceps injury. It's difficult to imagine Sabonis not making an attempt to play Tuesday with Indiana's season on the line.
Sabonis (knee) tallied 25 points (12-18 FG, 1-2 3Pt), 16 rebounds, five assists and three steals in 39 minutes during Sunday's 125-113 win over the Raptors.
The 25-year-old returned from a one-game absence due to a knee injury to post his 48th double-double of the season. He finished his fifth NBA campaign with career-best averages in points (20.3), assists (6.7), steals (1.2) and three-pointers (0.8) across 62 games. Sabonis will look to roll over his regular-season success into the postseason when the Pacers take part in the play-in tournament beginning Tuesday.
Sabonis (knee) will play Sunday against the Raptors, Jeremiah Johnson of Bally Sports Indiana reports.
Sabonis will return from a one-game absence for Sunday's finale. His return will likely mean a decreased role for Goga Bitadze.
Sabonis (knee) is a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Raptors, Tony East of the West Indianapolis Community News reports.
Sabonis missed Saturday's front of the back-to-back, but he has a chance to play Sunday. If he does return, Goga Bitadze would likely see a decreased workload.
Sabonis (knee) is out for Saturday's contest against the Lakers, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.
With Sabonis sidelined for the first time since April 29, Goga Bitadze will draw the start. Sabonis has one more chance to return during the regular season Sunday against the Raptors.
After leaving Thursday's game early with a knee injury, Sabonis is officially listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Lakers, Scott Agness of FieldhouseFiles.com reports.
Since coming back from injury May 1, Sabonis has been on a tear, averaging a triple-double with 22.8 points, 13.9 rebounds, 11.4 assists and 1.6 steals. Expect Goga Bitadze to receive a start and additional minutes if Sabonis is forced to sit out of Saturday's game.
Sabonis (knee) is questionable to return to Thursday's game, Pay Boylan of Indiana Pacers Radio reports.
Sabonis had struggled with his shot prior to leaving with the injury, scoring 10 points on 5-for-19 shooting. Despite that, he had added 14 assists to go along with six rebounds and one steal across 26 minutes. Indiana has two regular season games remaining, and it's unclear if Sabonis will be available for those games.
Sabonis collected 16 points (7-9 FG, 2-2 3Pt), 15 assists and 13 rebounds in a 103-94 victory over the 76ers on Tuesday.
Sabonis' dominant stretch continued, as he picked up his third triple-double in his last seven games. Over that span, the center has averaged 24.6 points (on an impressive 68.0 percent shooting from the field and 50.0 percent shooting from three), 15.0 rebounds and 11.0 assists per game. Sabonis joins Russell Westbrook as the only two players to record multiple triple-doubles and also average a triple-double over that stretch.
Sabonis scored 21 points (8-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT) to go along with 20 rebounds, nine assists, four blocks and two steals across 39 minutes in Monday's win over the Cavaliers.
Sabonis delivered another massive performance in all aspects of the box score. Particularly noteworthy was his four blocks, a number he managed for only the second time on the season. He was also very active on the glass, racking up 20 boards or more for the second time on the campaign. Since a six-game absence caused by a back injury, Sabonis has played at least 37 minutes in five of his last six contests, and he appears in line to finish the season in strong form.
Sabonis recorded 30 points (12-21 FG, 0-3Pt, 6-7 FT), 13 rebounds, 13 assists and three steals across 43 minutes in Saturday's 133-132 OT loss to the Wizards.
As expected, Sabonis had his way with Washington's weak frontcourt, but his stellar play wasn't enough to close the deal, as Russell Westbrook ultimately sealed the deal in a must-win game for both teams. After his six-game absence, Sabonis has owned the frontcourt with Myles Turner (toe) out, averaging 26.3 points, 14.8 rebounds, and 10.0 assists over the past four games. The Pacers are currently on track to make the play-in sequence, but they'll need to keep pace with the Bulls, who are hot on their heels for the final spot.
Sabonis tallied 30 points (12-14 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 3-5 FT), nine assists, eight rebounds and one steal in 41 minutes during Thursday's 133-126 win over the Hawks.
The 25-year-old has been on a tear since returning from a six-game absence due to a back issue, averaging 26.3 points, 14.8 rebounds, 10.0 assists and 1.8 steals over his past four games. Sabonis is averaging 40.5 minutes over his past three games, which is a good indicator that he's completely over his injury. The fifth-year center will look to keep it going Saturday at home against the Wizards.
Sabonis mustered 17 points (7-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 13 rebounds, eight assists and two steals across 37 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Kings.
Sabonis might have missed six straight games between April 19 and April 29, but that hasn't slowed him down as he has recorded nine straight double-doubles -- he ended just two assists shy of a triple-double in this one. The All-Star forward has been excellent on both ends of the court this season and should undoubtedly remain as Indiana's go-to player throughout the end of the season.
Sabonis compiled 32 points (14-22 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 19 rebounds, nine assists and three steals in 43 minutes during Monday's 154-141 loss to Washington.
Sabonis dominated again Monday, playing a whopping 43 minutes in the loss. He appears to have moved on from his recent back injury and with the team down on players, he is simply their go-to guy at the moment. Fantasy managers who waited out his recent absence have to be loving what Sabonis is bringing to the table, and to say he could be a potential league winner is an understatement.
Sabonis posted 26 points (10-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 19 rebounds and 14 assists in Saturday's win over the Thunder.
Making his return from a six-game absence due to a back issue, Sabonis showed no signs of rust, putting up his seventh triple-double of the season in dominant fashion. The Pacers outscored Oklahoma City 82 to 46 at halftime, but Sabonis still saw 30 minutes of action, which bodes well for his status ahead of Monday's game at Washington.
Sabonis (back) is available for Saturday's game against the Thunder, Tony East of the West Indianapolis Community News reports.
After a six-game absence due to back issues, Sabonis will return to the court Saturday. It's unclear whether he'll be on any sort of minutes restriction, but with Goga Bitadze (ankle) ruled out, Oshae Brissett could see an increased role in the Pacers' frontcourt if Sabonis is limited in any fashion. Sabonis is averaging 19.9 points, 11.6 rebounds and 6.0 assists across 35.7 minutes per game this season.
The Pacers have listed Sabonis (back) as questionable for Saturday's game against the Thunder.
Sabonis has missed the Pacers' previous seven games due to back issues, and the team continues to handle it on a game-to-game basis. His status Saturday will presumably be determined by how he is feeling closer to tip-off. Should he ultimately get the green light, do not be surprised if he faces a minutes restriction.
Sabonis (back) will not play Thursday against the Nets.
Sabonis continues to battle back issues that will keep him out of a sixth consecutive contest. The Pacers are handling his status on a game-by-game basis, but it's not encouraging that he's already been ruled out well in advance of Thursday's matchup.
