Sabonis supplied 19 points (5-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 8-9 FT), eight rebounds, and five assists in 27 minutes during Monday's 121-109 win over the Magic.
Sabonis torched the team that selected him in the draft, and the sophomore big man continues to exceed expectations. Sabonis and Myles Turner are still figuring out how to co-exist, but the former was the lone backup big to see the floor on Monday, with Al Jefferson and T.J. Leaf both healthy scratches. Expect Sabonis to continue earning plenty of minutes despite coming off the bench, as Pacers' coach Nate McMillan often seems content to keep his rotations short.
Sabonis scored 17 points (5-13 FG, 1-2 3 PT, 6-6 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, one assist and one steal over 30 minutes in Saturday's 108-98 loss to Boston.
Sabonis led all Indiana bench scorers with 17 points on Saturday. Since being sent to the bench, the center is averaging 12.2 points and 7.2 rebounds in eight games. While he did not set any records for shooting efficiency (38.4 percent), Sabonis took more chances offensively in his 30 minutes, shooting 13 times versus his 8.5 field goal attempt average. Still, Sabonis is carving out a comfortable niche for himself as a source of bench scoring and rebounding.
Sabonis tallied 12 points (4-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds and one steal in 24 minutes during Friday's 107-100 victory over Detroit.
Sabonis was questionable coming into the game with an illness, however, he looked good in his 24 minutes on the floor. He actually finished the game over Myles Turner, providing plenty of energy during the comeback. Coach Nate McMillan has said that he wants to find minutes for Sabonis, as evidenced by his efforts tonight. If he was dropped in your league, he is worthy of a spot if you need points and boards at the end of your roster.
Sabonis (illness) will play Friday against the Pistons, Jeremiah Johnson of Fox Sports Indiana reports.
Sabonis is battling an illness, but is seemingly feeling well enough to play. Over the past three contests, he's posted 12.7 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game.
Sabonis (illness) is going through pre-game warmups in advance of Friday's game against the Pistons but should still be considered questionable, Jeremiah Johnson of Fox Sports Indiana reports.
More word should arrive on Sabonis' availability as tipoff nears, though his status is still relatively up in the air until then. The fact that he's going through warmups is a good sign, however. If he's ultimately held out, Al Jefferson would likely be the main beneficiary.
