Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Hands out season-high 11 helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Shoots blanks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Quality showing in Monday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McConnell (groin) will be available Saturday against the Magic, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.

As expected, McConnell will be making his return following a two-game absence resulting from groin soreness. Across his past four appearances, he's averaged 11.8 points, 6.8 assists and 3.3 rebounds in 22.0 minutes.

Pacers' T.J. McConnell: On track to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McConnell (groin) said he expects to play Saturday against the Magic, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports.

McConnell has missed the past two games due to a groin injury, but he's on track to return Saturday after participating in Thursday's practice. Assuming he suits up Saturday, McConnell could be in line for an increased workload with Malcolm Brogdon tending to a back issue.

Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Ruled out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McConnell (groin) has been ruled out for Monday's game against Brooklyn, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports.

McConnell will join both Jeremy Lamb (ankle) and Malcolm Brogdon (back) on the pine. His next opportunity to return from groin soreness is Saturday against Orlando.

Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Labeled questionable for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McConnell (groin) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Nets, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.

McConnell's sore groin prevented him from playing in Saturday's 102-83 loss to the Bucks, marking his first absence of the season. With Malcolm Brogdon (back) also sitting out that contest, Aaron Holiday shifted over to point guard and logged a season-high 34 minutes. Holiday would be looking at another sizable workload Monday if both McConnell and Brogdon are sidelined again.

Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McConnell (groin) is out Saturday against the Bucks, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.

With Malcolm Brogdon (back) also out, Aaron Holiday should see a dramatic increase in playmaking responsibilities. Naz Mitrou-Long may also see game action.

Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Questioanble Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McConnell is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Bucks due to a sore groin.

McConnell is dealing with groin soreness in the wake of Friday's loss to Houston. With Malcolm Brogdon (back) doubtful, McConnell could see significant minutes if he's deemed healthy enough to play. In 12 games this year, the 27-year-old's averaging 6.7 points, 4.7 assists and 2.8 rebounds in 17.5 minutes.

Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Dishes out seven assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McConnell had 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-3 FT) and seven assists in 22 minutes during Friday's 111-102 loss at Houston.

McConnell has scored in double digits in three of his last four outings while dishing out seven or more assists thrice over that span. Considering Malcolm Brodgon's uncertain status for Saturday's matchup against Milwaukee, McConnell could he see an uptick in both minutes and production in the short term.

Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Shines off bench in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McConnell provided 12 points (6-9 FG), eight assists, three rebounds and one block in 20 minutes off the bench Sunday in the Pacers' 109-102 win over the Magic.

With 29 points and 17 assists over his past two contests, McConnell may have vaulted himself into the driver's seat for the top backup role behind starting point guard Malcolm Brogdon. There will be room for both McConnell and Aaron Holiday in the rotation while Jeremy Lamb (ankle) is out, but Holiday is the more likely candidate to have his role reduced or move out of the rotation entirely once Lamb returns.

Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Scores season-high 17 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McConnell finished with 17 points (8-10 FG, 1-1 FT), nine assists, five rebounds, and one block in 22 minutes during Friday's 112-106 victory over the Pistons.

McConnell stepped up for the undermanned Pacers, falling just one assist short of a double-double. He has always had the ability to put up fantasy-relevant numbers when afforded the opportunity and that shone through in this performance. There is no word on whether Jeremy Lamb (ankle) will return for the next game, however, if that is the case, McConnell could have streaming value if you need assists.

Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Hands out six assists in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McConnell recorded five points (2-4 FG, 1-1 FT) and six assists in 15 minutes during Friday's 102-95 win over the Cavaliers.

McConnell seems to have leapfrogged Aaron Holiday for the primary backup point guard gig. McConnell has earned more minutes in four of the first five games of 2019-20, and Holiday has only appeared in three games thus far. However, McConnell isn't exactly filling up stat sheets beyond the assist column (4.0 per tilt), so he's not all that useful outside of much deeper leagues.

Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Nears double-double in 20 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McConnell managed 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-2 FT), eight assists, three rebounds, two steals, and one block in 20 minutes during Tuesday's 119-111 loss to the Timberwolves.

McConnell has proven himself to be a scrappy backup point guard who can create for himself and others, albeit with limited shooting range. He's likely battling with Aaron Holiday for the backup role behind Malcolm Brogdon, though either way McConnell shouldn't be expected to hold value outside of the deepest leagues.

Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Joins Pacers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McConnell has agreed to a two-year, $7 million deal with the Pacers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

McConnell has been a reliable backup for the 76ers across the past four seasons, but he'll move on to Indiana. With Malcolm Brogdon presumably starting at point guard, McConnell will fight for reserve minutes alongside Aaron Holiday.

76ers' T.J. McConnell: Well-rounded stat line in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McConnell totaled 18 points (9-10 FG), six assists, two rebounds and a block across 23 minutes in the 76ers' win over the Bulls on Wednesday.

McConnell produced a well-rounded line on Wednesday, drawing a spot start with the 76ers resting starters having already locked up the third seed in the Eastern Conference. It was a big night for McConnell but one that won't be replicated unless Ben Simmons is forced to miss time.

76ers' T.J. McConnell: Starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McConnell will start Wednesday's contest against the Bulls, Paul Hudrick of NBCS Philadelphia reports.

The Sixers are resting most of their key players, prompting McConnell to draw the start. In two previous starts this season, he's averaged 3.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists in 28.0 minutes.

76ers' T.J. McConnell: Productive in limited minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McConnell finished with 15 points (7-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt), three rebounds, two blocks, one assist, and one steal in 17 minutes during Monday's 122-102 loss to the Mavericks.

McConnell played just 17 minutes Monday but was able to put up numbers across the board in what was a nice outing for the backup point guard. A scoring night like this doesn't come around too often and in fact, this is the most he has scored in almost three months. If Ben Simmons were to ever miss extended time, McConnell would have value in 12-team formats but at this stage even streaming him in is difficult on most nights.

76ers' T.J. McConnell: Will start at point guard
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McConnel is starting Monday's game against Orlando, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Ben Simmons has been ruled out with a stomach bug, so McConnell will draw the start at point guard. He's entered the starting lineup only one other time this season, scoring five points over 27 minutes Jan. 26 against Denver.

76ers' T.J. McConnell: Perfect from field in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McConnell recorded 13 points (6-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt), three assists, three steals, and one rebound in 19 minutes during Sunday's 143-120 win over the Lakers.

McConnell was magnificent, enjoying a perfect shooting night while also taking care of the ball (zero turnovers) and contributing in every category except blocks. McConnell hasn't shared the court with Ben Simmons in either of the last two tilts, which doesn't bode well for McConnell's role going forward. Nevertheless, that's likely optimal for the team given that neither spaces the floor well.
