Top Pacers News

  • Pacers' Tyreke Evans: Questionable with knee bruise

    Evans is questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Knicks due to a bruised right knee.

    Evans presumably picked up the injury during Friday's game against the 76ers. With the return of Victor Oladipo over the past two games, Evans' role has been reduced, seeing a total of 34 minutes. If he ends up sidelined Sunday, Darren Collison, Cory Joseph and Aaron Holiday could all see upticks in workload.

  • Pacers' Thaddeus Young: Leads Pacers with 26 points

    Young accounted for 26 points (9-19 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 8-9 FT), four rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 30 minutes Friday as the the Pacers topped the 76ers.

    Young has absorbed the lions share of Victor Oladipo's offensive workload while he was on the mend, and his stretch of strong play continued Friday with Oladipo being eased back into the lineup. The veteran big man led the way Friday in a classic revenge game against the team that drafted him. MVP chants were raining down from the rafters (for 76ers star Joel Embiid) as Young was establishing himself as a fantasy option that should be on any owners radar who needs immediate production, although his role might dim ever so slightly as Oladipo takes back over.

  • Pacers' Domantas Sabonis: Posts double-double in 31 minutes

    Sabonis registered 14 points (7-14 FG), 16 rebounds, and two assists in 31 minutes Friday as the Pacers topped the 76ers.

    Sabonis is a throwback big who cleans up around the rim and take's advantage of every opportunity that comes his way. He isn't the most explosive athlete but his finesse and technicality have made him one of the most efficient scoring bigs in the NBA. Entering tonight, Sabonis was averaging a staggering 20.6 points, 14.1 rebounds, and 4.5 assists on a per-36 minute basis. He is only averaging 8.7 shots per game, but he is connecting on 63-percent of his attempts from the field. The third-year big is the top bench option on a deep Pacers squad, and it's reasonable to expect that there is more production to come should an opportunity for more minutes ever present itself.

  • Pacers' Kyle O'Quinn: Available to play Friday

    O'Quinn (illness) is available to play in Friday's game against the 76ers.

    O'Quinn popped up on the injury report due to an undisclosed illness, but it looks like it won't be an issue for the big man. O'Quinn, however, hasn't played in seven of the last eight games and will remain a deep bench option unless the Pacers' frontcourt becomes riddled with injuries.

  • Pacers' Kyle O'Quinn: Added to injury report

    O'Quinn (illness) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the 76ers.

    O'Quinn is dealing with an undisclosed illness, leaving his status murky for Friday's contest. Even if the big man suits up, he doesn't figure to see any significant playing time behind Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis.

  • Pacers' Victor Oladipo: Feeling good after return

    Oladipo said Thursday morning that he feels fine after returning to action Wednesday night against Milwaukee, Jeremiah Johnson of Fox Sports Indiana reports.

    Oladipo was back in the starting lineup Wednesday night and saw 29 minutes of action, finishing with 12 points, 10 rebounds and six assists, while shooting 5-of-11 from the field. Considering the lengthy layoff, he didn't look overly rusty, and his comments Thursday suggest that he should be good to go for Friday's game in Philadelphia. The Pacers then play Sunday against New York before a home/road back-to-back set Tuesday and Wednesday.

  • Pacers' Domantas Sabonis: Double-doubles off bench

    Sabonis registered 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds and three assists across 24 minutes in Wednesday's 113-97 win over the Bucks.

    Having exceeded 30 minutes just three times, people know what to expect from Sabonis: a tough-working bench player who doesn't need a whole lot of time to produce a solid statistical effort. His size and post play allow for him to maintain his role as a backup forward, while his youthful energy allows for quick production from the bench.

  • Pacers' Myles Turner: Drops 23 points Wednesday

    Turner recorded 23 points (9-22 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and three blocks across 31 minutes in Wednesday's 113-97 win over the Bucks.

    Turner didn't quite have the game he had last time out against the Wizards, but his production was still impressive nonetheless despite Victor Oladipo's return to action. Over the last three games, Turner has averaged 19.3 points, 12.3 rebounds, and four blocks, numbers he will hope to sustain with Oladipo's return.

  • Pacers' Victor Oladipo: Double-doubles in return

    Oladipo tallied 12 points (5-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds and six assists across 29 minutes in Wednesday's 113-97 win over the Bucks.

    After a lengthy 11-game absence, Oladipo was cleared of a knee injury to play in Wednesday's game. His return to action was promising, registering a double-double, something he only did three times prior to the injury. Wednesday night's game was Oladipo's second game under 30 minutes all season, so expect his minutes and production to rise quickly as he gets his feet back under him.

  • Pacers' Thaddeus Young: Leads team to win Wednesday

    Young contributed 25 points (9-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 11 rebounds, five steals, four assists and one block across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 113-97 win over the Bucks.

    Young surpassed his season-high scoring Wednesday night while also getting it done on the defensive end, tying his steals season-high. His two-way talent is what makes him a factor and allows him to see plenty of minutes, and games like Wednesday's serve as a reminder to that statement.

  • Pacers' Tyreke Evans: Heads to bench Wednesday

    Evans will come off the bench Wednesday against the Bucks.

    With Victor Oladipo (knee) returning to the starting lineup Wednesday, Evans will be pushed to the bench. The veteran guard still figures to play a large role considering Oladipo is under a minutes restriction for the time-being. Through 26 games, including 11 starts, Evans is averaging 10.8 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 22.3 minutes.

  • Pacers' Victor Oladipo: Starting, has minutes limit

    Oladipo (knee) will start Wednesday against the Bucks and has an undisclosed minutes limit, Malika Andrews of ESPN.com reports.

    It seems the Pacers will ease Oladipo back into action, but it's unclear how many minutes the All-Star will be allotted. Aside from the game where he suffered his knee injury, Oladipo has played fewer than 30 minutes just once this season. It was the season opener against Memphis, and he posted 16 points, five rebounds and five assists in 26 minutes.

  • Pacers' Victor Oladipo: Cleared to play Wednesday

    Oladipo (knee) will play Wednesday against the Bucks.

    Oladipo will jump back into action Wednesday. The news is a bit surprising considering Oladipo just practiced for the first time Tuesday, playing 4-on-4. He will probably re-join the starting five, but it's not immediately clear if he'll garner his usual 30-plus minutes.
