Pacers' Myles Turner: Questionable for Wednesday
Turner is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hornets due to a sprained left ankle.
Turner suffered the ankle sprain in the first half of Monday's win over Utah but was ultimately able to return. Despite playing through the pain, Turner is still likely going to end up being a game-time call for Wednesday's game. Should Turner be ruled out, Domantas Sabonis would likely be thrust into the starting lineup and see a significant portion of the minutes at center in Charlotte.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Victor Oladipo: Questionable for Wednesday
Oladipo (knee) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.
Oladipo sat out Monday's same while continuing to deal with soreness in his right knee, and while it is not believed to be anything serious, he could be sidelined for a second straight game. Look for an update on Oladipo's status following shootaround Wednesday morning, but if he is unable to play, Tyreke Evans would be in line for his second straight start.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Aaron Holiday: Scores 19 points in 21 minutes
Holiday had 19 points (7-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-5 FT), seven rebounds, and one assist in 21 minutes during Monday's 121-94 win over the Jazz.
Holiday was stellar for the second straight game, and he has combined for 31 points (11-16 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 4-7 FT), 10 boards, and three assists in just 36 minutes during these last two tilts. With Victor Oladipo dealing with knee soreness, the rookie hasn't been timid, this after earning just 16 minutes through his first five appearances and not seeing the court since back on Oct. 27. Holiday is making a strong case that he deserves a spot in the regular rotation, but the team's guard depth could be a road block. As a result, Holiday is still a speculative add in most leagues....

Pacers' Domantas Sabonis: Teases triple-double in 26 minutes
Sabonis poured in 19 points (7-9 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-6 FT), nine rebounds, nine assists, and two steals in 26 minutes during Monday's 121-94 win over the Jazz.
Sabonis has been putting his guard skills on display all year, but he took it up a notch in this one, handing out a career high assist total while finishing one dime and one board shy of a triple-double. It's unclear whether Victor Oladipo (knee) will remain sidelined for Wednesday's matchup with the Hornets, but if so Sabonis would likely be among those to benefit. Regardless, Sabonis has proven he's a valuable commodity across all formats.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Darren Collison: Season highs in assists and boards
Collison contributed nine points (4-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt), seven assists, six rebounds, and one steal in 27 minutes during Monday's 121-94 win over the Jazz.
Collison stepped up with Victor Oladipo (sore knee) sidelined and provided his most well-rounded effort of the campaign, posting season highs in assists and rebounds. It's unclear whether Oladipo will be ready to go for Wednesday's matchup with the Hornets, but if not Collison could once again shoulder additional responsibility in the playmaking department....

Pacers' Tyreke Evans: Dishes five dimes in Monday's win
Evans had eight points (3-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt), five assists, three rebounds, and two steals in 27 minutes during Monday's 121-94 win over the Jazz.
Evans drew the start in place of Victor Oladipo (knee) but struggled from the field. It's unclear whether Oladipo's sore knee will keep him sidelined for Wednesday's matchup with the Hornets, but if so Evans would likely draw another start. Those considering Evans in daily leagues will want to keep an eye on Oladipo's status.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Myles Turner: Returns to game following injury

Turner briefly went to the locker room for further evaluation after suffering an ankle injury, but he came back onto the court and managed to log 26 minutes on the night. He appears good to go for now but may pop up on the injury report for Wednesday's matchup in Charlotte depending on if he experiences any soreness.... See More ... See Less

Turner exited Monday's contest against the Jazz with a left ankle injury and is questionable to return, Pat Boyland of the Indiana Pacers Radio reports.

Pacers' Tyreke Evans: Enters starting lineup Monday
Coach Nate McMillan said Evans is starting Monday against the Jazz.
With Victor Oladipo unavailable due to a knee injury, Evans will enter the starting lineup for the first time all season and should benefit from an increased role. Through 15 games, Evans is averaging 11.2 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists across 20.4 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Victor Oladipo: Ruled out Monday
Oladipo (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Jazz.
As expected, Oladipo will sit out Monday as he continues to nurse a sore right knee. Fortunately, the issue isn't believed to be anything more than general soreness. Tyreke Evans and Aaron Holiday are candidate to see increased run in his absence. Oladipo's next chance to play will come Wednesday against the Hornets.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Victor Oladipo: Doubtful for Monday
Coach Nate McMillan said Oladipo (knee) is doubtful for Monday's game against the Jazz.
It looks like Oladipo will miss Monday's contest as he continues to nurse a sore right knee, though the Pacers will wait until closer to tipoff to make a final decision regarding his status. Fortunately, the issue doesn't appear to be anything long term, according to J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star. Tyreke Evans is a candidate to see increased run if Oladipo is unable to play....

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....
