Pacers' Bojan Bogdanovic: Fills up box score in Sunday's loss
Bogdanovic posted 20 points (6-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six rebounds, six assists, and three steals in 37 minutes during Sunday's 115-103 loss to the Rockets.
Bogdanovic scored at least 20 points for the third time this season while reaching double figures for the fifth straight contest. Moreover, he dished out a season high assist total and matched his season highs in rebounding and steals. Bogdanovic has also drained three treys in each of the last three games, giving him six showings with at least three triples through the first 14 games. Bogdanovic is still most reliable in deeper leagues given that his contributions outside of scoring and threes tend to be minimal, but he continues to earn 30-plus minutes on most nights as the team's top perimeter shooter....

Pacers' Victor Oladipo: Another double-double in Sunday's loss
Oladipo had 22 points (7-24 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 10 rebounds, seven assists, and two steals in 40 minutes during Sunday's 115-103 loss to the Rockets.
Oladipo has delivered consecutive double-doubles, with four over the last six games as well. Oladipo also saw a season high minute total in this one, and while he was far from efficient offensively, the 26-year-old star continues to carry a massive load for his team. Oladipo and company now have several days to rest and recover for Friday's matchup with the Heat.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Domantas Sabonis: Scores 11 points in Sunday's loss
Sabonis recorded 11 points (4-4 FG, 3-6 FT), six rebounds, two assists, and one block in 22 minutes during Sunday's 115-103 loss to the Rockets.
Sabonis was listed as questionable but was ultimately removed from the injury report prior to Sunday's tilt. It was a quiet statistical outing given that fantasy owners are getting accustomed to Sabonis contributing double-doubles on an almost nightly basis. Nevertheless, he was efficient offensively (as usual), and he'll now have several days to rest up for Friday's matchup with the Heat.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Domantas Sabonis: Available to play Sunday
Sabonis (ankle) is available to play Sunday against Houston.
Sabonis was listed as questionable earlier Sunday and per reports, doesn't carry any injury designation prior to the contest against the Rockets.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Domantas Sabonis: Questionable Sunday vs. Rockets
Sabonis is questionable Sunday against the Rockets due to a sprained right ankle.
Sabonis may have picked up the injury during Friday's game against the Heat, in which he played 24 minutes and posted 17 points, 11 rebounds, one block and one assist. An update on his availability may arrive following Sunday's morning shootaround.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Cory Joseph: Scores season-high 14 points in Friday's win
Joseph managed 14 points (6-7 FG, 2-2 3Pt), five rebounds, and two assists in 32 minutes during Friday's 110-102 win over the Heat.
Joseph contributed a season high in scoring and saw more minutes than every Pacer except starting guards Victor Oladipo and Darren Collison, who earned 37 and 36 minutes respectively. Joseph's statistical drop-off has not been nearly as substantial as one would've expected following the offseason addition of Tyreke Evans, who hasn't earned more minutes than Joseph since the second game of the season....

Pacers' Darren Collison: Bounces back in Friday's win
Collison collected 17 points (6-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-8 FT), four assists, three rebounds, two blocks, and one steal in 36 minutes during Friday's 110-102 win over the Heat.
Collison was coming off a scoreless performance plus two more single-digit efforts prior to that, so it was good to see him bounce back in this one. Given the team's depth at point guard, with Corey Joseph and Tyreke Evans fighting for reserve minutes and Oladipo also capable of handling the ball, Collison will likely find it difficult to deliver the same consistency that he provided last season....

Pacers' Domantas Sabonis: Yet another double-double in Friday's win
Sabonis supplied 17 points (6-7 FG, 5-8 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist, and one block in 24 minutes during Friday's 110-102 win over the Heat.
Sabonis has posted consecutive double-doubles, and he has made at least 50 percent of his field-goal attempts in 10 of 12 appearances thus far this season. Starting power forward Thaddeus Young has seen season low minute totals in back-to-back bouts as well, as Sabonis continues to earn plenty of time thanks to his highly efficient play.... See More ...

Pacers' Victor Oladipo: Posts double-double in Friday's win
Oladipo finished with 22 points (9-22 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 10 assists, five rebounds, and four steals in 37 minutes during Friday's 110-102 win over the Heat.
Oladipo tweaked his knee during Wednesday's loss to the 76ers, but he was still able to give it a go in this one. Moreover, he shook off a slow start to deliver his third double-double in the last five games while contributing a season high assist total. Oladipo and company will look to avenge a recent home loss to the Rockets when they play in Houston on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Victor Oladipo: Expected to play vs. Heat
Oladipo (knee) is going through his normal pregame routine and is likely to play Friday against Miami, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.
Oladipo tweaked his left knee in Wednesday's contest with the 76ers, but he managed to go through morning shootaround and his usual routine closer to tipoff without issue. He should be in the starting lineup without restriction for Friday's matchup in Miami.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Victor Oladipo: Listed as questionable Friday
Oladipo is listed as questionable due to a bruised left knee for Friday's game against the Heat.
Oladipo likely suffered the injury during Wednesday's game against the 76ers. If he ends up being ruled out, Tyreke Evans would presumably see more run and could draw a start at shooting guard.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Domantas Sabonis: Records fourth double-double of 2018-19
Sabonis registered 16 points (7-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and one block across 32 minutes Wednesday in the Pacers' 100-94 loss to the 76ers.
The double-double was Sabonis' fourth of the season, but his first since Oct. 24. Sabonis certainly wasn't slacking during his six-game double-double drought, however, as he averaged 14.8 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.8 assists while shooting a blistering 73.3 percent from the field. The presence of Myles Turner continues to relegate Sabonis to the bench, but it hasn't had negative consequences on the latter's playing time. Sabonis has cleared 30 minutes in both of the past two games as coach Nate McMillan has shown more of a willingness to use the two big men alongside one another for brief spurts.... See More ...

Pacers' Kyle O'Quinn: Plays two minutes in Wednesday's loss
O'Quinn had zero points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), one rebound, and one assist in two minutes during Wednesday's 100-94 loss to the 76ers.
O'Quinn had been a healthy scratch in each of the last three contests, and he has earned only three minutes in each of his last three appearances. With Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis both firmly ahead of O'Quinn on the depth chart, the 28-year-old veteran can be left on waiver wires in most leagues.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Darren Collison: Scoreless in Wednesday's loss
Collison had zero points (0-3 FG), one rebound, one assist, and one steal in 18 minutes during Wednesday's 100-94 loss to the 76ers.
Collison delivered a dud, spending most of the game on the sidelines as Corey Joseph earned 31 minutes and Tyreke Evans earned 21 minutes. Coach Nate McMillan has proven willing to ride the hot hand among the three, and Joseph remains the team's best defensive point guard. Overall, Collison is typically a passable low-end starter in standard leagues, though the addition of Evans and continued presence of Joseph does complicate things a bit.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Thaddeus Young: Plays 21 minutes in Wednesday's loss
Young provided six points (3-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt), five rebounds, and two steals in 21 minutes during Wednesday's 100-94 loss to the 76ers.
Young struggled to make an impact in this one, finishing with four turnovers while scoring in single digits for the fourth straight game. Moreover, Young saw a season low minute total, with backup big man Domantas Sabonis delivering yet another double-double across 32 minutes of action. Young remains one of the team's most versatile defenders as well as a capable cog offensively, but he's off to a quiet start here in 2018-19.... See More ... See Less
