Pacers' Victor Oladipo: Questionable for Monday
Oladipo (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Jazz, Tony Jones of The Athletic reports.
Oladipo's right knee issues flared up in Saturday's game against the Hawks and he was forced to exit prematurely. While it's encouraging that he hasn't been immediately ruled out of Monday's game, his viability during morning shootaround will give a better idea of if he'll actually be able to play....

Pacers' Myles Turner: Quiet double-double against Hawks
Turner scored 10 points (4-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 0-2 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, three blocks and two assists in 25 minutes during Saturday's 97-89 win over the Hawks.
Remarkably, it was Turner's first double-double of the season. The 22-year-old's minutes and overall production have both been down, in large part due to the emergence of Domantas Sabonis on the Pacers' bench, but Turner is still making an impact defensively. He's recorded multiple blocks in six straight games and 11 of the last 12, and he's now fourth in the league with a career-high 2.5 blocks per game.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Bojan Bogdanovic: Drops team-high 22 in win
Bogdanovic scored 22 points (7-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT) while adding four rebounds in 28 minutes during Saturday's 97-89 win over the Hawks.
A sore knee limited Victor Oladipo to only five minutes in Saturday's game, but Bogdanovic was once again able to step up and lead the Pacers in scoring. The 29-year-old is averaging 15.3 points and 2.4 made three-pointers a game so far in November, but if Oladipo ends up missing more time with the knee injury, look for Bogdanovic's usage to increase even further -- making him an intriguing DFS option in the short term....

Pacers' Victor Oladipo: Will not return Saturday
Oladipo (knee) will not return to Saturday's game against the Hawks, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Oladipo was nursing right knee soreness heading into Saturday's game, but decided to play. After apparently feeling more pain than anticipated during the first quarter, he went back to the locker room and will not return.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Victor Oladipo: Heads to locker room
Oladipo went to the locker room during the first quarter of Saturday's game against the Hawks, freelance sports writer Mark Montieth reports.
Oladipo was nursing right knee soreness and was originally questionable heading into Saturday's game. It's possible he's aggravated the issue.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Victor Oladipo: Cleared to play Saturday
Oladipo (knee) will play Saturday against the Hawks, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Despite right knee soreness, Oladipo will take the floor. Since the beginning of November, he's averaged 23.6 points, 8.1 rebounds, 5.6 assists and 1.9 steals in 36.1 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Victor Oladipo: Questionable with sore knee
Oladipo is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against Atlanta due to a sore right knee.
This is the first we've heard of the injury, which likely occurred during Friday's game against Miami, in which Oladipo was held to just eight points on 3-of-12 shooting. The hope is that he'll be able to take the court Saturday, but it's possible the Pacers could exercise caution against an inferior opponent on the second night of a back-to-back.... See More ...

Pacers' Bojan Bogdanovic: Scores 16 in win over Heat
Bogdanovic scored 16 points (6-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding six rebounds and a steal in 33 minutes during Friday's 99-91 win over the Heat.
He led all Pacers starters in scoring on a night when Victor Oladipo was uncharacteristically flat, Bogdanovic's sixth straight game with double-digit points. The 29-year-old is averaging a career-high 2.1 three-pointers a game so far, providing some key complementary scoring for Indiana, but his 51.6 percent shooting from beyond the arc seems ripe for regression....

Pacers' Domantas Sabonis: Double-double off bench
Sabonis scored 15 points (7-10 FG, 1-1 FT) while adding 12 rebounds and three assists in 25 minutes off the bench during Friday's 99-91 win over the Heat.
On a night when Victor Oladipo was uncharacteristically flat, the Pacers' bench came to the rescue, as Sabonis recorded his third double-double in the last four games and sixth of the season. The third-year big man continues to be incredibly efficient on the offensive end, shooting 68.4 percent from the floor, and he's also averaging career highs in boards (9.1), assists (2.5) and blocks (0.6) despite seeing essentially the same workload he did last year....

Pacers' Tyreke Evans: Drops team-high 23 in win over Heat
Evans scored 23 points (6-13 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 6-6 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, two assists and a block in 25 minutes off the bench during Friday's 99-91 win over the Heat.
On a night when Victor Oladipo was uncharacteristically flat, the Pacers' bench came to the rescue, as Evans led the team in scoring while recording his first double-double of the season. The 29-year-old isn't seeing enough court time to have consistent fantasy value in most formats, but should an injury push him into a larger role, Evans still seems capable of making an impact....

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
