McConnell finished with 12 points (6-10 FG), five assists and one rebound across 15 minutes during Sunday's win over the Mavericks.
McConnell reached double digits for the second time in three games while providing his usual steady hand running point for the second unit. Although he's one of the better bench players in the league, McConnell's contributions of 6.6 points, 5.0 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 18.9 minutes per game aren't enough to warrant him a roster spot in most formats.
McConnell will come off the bench Friday against the Bulls, Mike McGraw of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
With Malcolm Brogdon (hip) out and Victor Oladipo (knee) in, Aaron Holiday will get the nod next to Oladipo in the backcourt. McConnell could still see plenty of action for the shorthanded Pacers, however.
McConnell collected 14 points (7-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt), six assists, four rebounds and two steals in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 119-100 loss to the Bucks.
McConnell stepped up with Malcolm Brogdon exiting due to a sore hip and Victor Oladipo missing his second straight showing with knee soreness. McConnell was one of four Pacers to play 30-plus minutes and may see a bunch of minutes during Friday's bout versus the Bulls if Brogdon and/or Oladipo remain sidelined.
McConnell managed eight points (4-8 FG), two rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 19 minutes during Monday's 106-105 loss to the Nets.
McConnell provided a little bit of everything while fellow backup guard Aaron Holiday (coach's decision) didn't see the floor at all. McConnell continues to provide efficient scoring and plenty of playmaking considering his modest minutes average, and he's a viable option in deep leagues.
McConnell will come off the bench Wednesday against the Bulls.
With Malcolm Brogdon returning to the starting five after missing time due to a concussion, McConnell will resume his usual role off the bench. When coming off the bench this month, McConnell is averaging 5.9 points, 6.3 assists and 2.5 rebounds in 20.6 minutes.
McConnell is starting at point guard Friday against Golden State, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports.
McConnell will draw just his second start of the season, with his last opportunity to run with the first unit dating back to Jan. 10 against Chicago. He finished with four points, four assists, three rebounds and a steal over 26 minutes.
McConnell generated 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 FT), 11 assists, four rebounds, three steals and a block in 27 minutes Wednesday night during the Pacers' 112-87 victory versus the Suns.
Malcolm Brogdon exited midway through the second quarter after being elbowed in the head by Myles Turner and eventually required stitches. In his absence, McConnell matched his season-high in assists while recording his second double-double of the year. If the game had been close there is a chance Brgdon would have returned, so odds are McConnell will return to his typical role Thursday in Golden State.
McConnell finished with six points (3-6 FG), 10 assists, two rebounds, two steals and one block in 23 minutes Monday in the Pacers' 118-88 loss to the Jazz.
Coach Nate McMillan limited the minutes for most of his starters in the blowout loss, which played at a major part in McConnell reaching double digits in assists for the third time this season. The Pacers' previous five games had been decided by 11 or fewer points, and McConnell averaged 4.8 points, 4.4 assists, 2.4 rebounds and 0.6 steals in that stretch. Those numbers are a better representation of what he'll provide on most occasions.
McConnell tallied four points (2-3 FG), eight assists, two rebounds and one steal in 19 minutes during Wednesday's 104-99 win over the Timberwolves.
McConnell continues to be a very solid source of assists, plus he's maintaining solid shooting percentages. The looming return of Victor Oladipo (knee), who is set to make his season debut on Jan. 29, may very well affect McConnell, among others. Still, McConnell has been a spark plug off the bench and could continue to operate in a pretty similar role for the remainder of the campaign.
McConnell will start Friday's game against the Bulls, Jeremiah Johnson of Fox Sports Indiana reports.
McConnell is averaging 6.3 points and 6.6 assists over his last seven matchups off the bench, and the Pacers have elected to change things up by slotting him into the starting five. Aaron Holiday will come off the bench as a result.
McConnell had seven points (3-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt), three rebounds, and seven assists in 21 minutes of a 115-104 win against Charlotte on Monday.
McConnell was the most effective option running point with Malcolm Brogdon (back) missing the contest. The fourth-year player has now put up seven assists in two of his team's three games since the new year, as he continues to be a prime distributor. If Brogdon continues to miss time, McConnell should continue to see an increased share of minutes.
McConnell (ankle) has been cleared to play Monday against Charlotte, Jeremiah Johnson of Fox Sports Indiana reports.
McConnell was previously considered questionable due to an ankle sprain, but the team has given him the green light for Monday's matchup. He's averaging 6.9 points and six assists in his last seven contests off the bench.
McConnell (ankle) is questionable for Monday's game at Charlotte.
The 27-year-old sustained the right ankle sprain during Saturday's loss to the Hawks, but he still has a chance to suit up Monday. The Pacers would take another hit to their depth at point guard if McConnell can't play, since Malcolm Brogdon (back) has been ruled out.
McConnell sustained a right ankle sprain during Saturday's game against the Hawks, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports.
McConnell played 17 minutes and totaled two points (1-4 FG), five assists and one steal before going down with the injury. Aaron Holiday figures to handle the bulk of the point work in the closing stages of Saturday's contest.
McConnell amassed 11 points (3-7 FG, 5-6 FT), 10 assists and four rebounds in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 115-97 victory over the 76ers.
McConnell produced his first double-double of the season and could be in line for additional minutes moving forward. Malcolm Brogdon (back) was unable to return after exiting with a back injury. If he is forced to miss time both McConnell and Aaron Holiday should benefit. Holiday would likely move into the starting lineup leaving McConnell as the primary backup. He is not a must-roster player but could provide short-term value if you need assists.
McConnell generated 15 points (7-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt), eight assists, three rebounds and a steal in 21 minutes Friday against the Kings.
McConnell continued his streak of sizzling shooting, topping double figures for the third-straight contests. While he's always been a consistent source of assists, the fifth-year guard's now made 18 of 25 shots from the field over his past three games and appears to be exceptionally dialed in. While McConnell isn't expected to maintain this level of scoring for the duration of the season, he may be worth a flier in DFS lineups for Sunday's game against Milwaukee, as there's a fair chance he'll be able to string together another solid scoring performance.
McConnell ended with 12 points (6-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt), eight assists and two rebounds in 23 minutes during Sunday's 107-85 victory over the Hornets.
McConnell took advantage of the blowout, falling two assists shy of a double-double. Both he and Aaron Holiday put up decent performances in this one, something McConnell has the demonstrated ability to do. When the playing time is there, McConnell will typically deliver assists by the bunch, however, that opportunity is rare at this point.
McConnell produced six points (3-3 FG), 11 assists, two rebounds and one steal in 20 minutes during Saturday's 104-103 win over the Knicks.
McConnell amassed a season high in assists while snapping a seven-game streak in which he failed to earn at least 20 minutes once. Furthermore, he was perfect from the field, albeit on only three shots. If Malcolm Brogdon (hand) remains sidelined for Monday's contest versus the Clippers, McConnell could once again be in line to see a decent load of minutes while being relied upon to make things happen for himself and others offensively.
McConnell had zero points (0-4 FG), three assists and a rebound during Friday's 108-101 win in Detroit.
It didn't take long for the 27-year-old to realize he'd be better off not shooting, missing three shots in the first quarter before proceeding to attempt just one moving forward. The fifth-year point guard had yet to produce a game with zero points this season, which means this instance could be a one-off. However, McConnell will need to prevent this kind of performance moving forward if he wants a spot in the rotation once Victor Oladipo (knee) returns.
McConnell totaled 11 points (5-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt), six assists and five rebounds in 19 minutes during Monday's 126-114 win over the Grizzlies.
McConnell had his five-game streak of at least 20 minutes snapped, but he was still able to have an impact on the box score. The return of Malcolm Brogdon (back), who missed the last three tilts, didn't fluster McConnell in terms of his production, as he has now handed out at least six dimes in five of the last six contests.
