Pacers' Domantas Sabonis: Double-doubles off bench in Rising Stars Challenge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sabonis generated 13 points (6-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 0-1 FT), 11 rebounds and three assists across 19 minutes during Team World's 155-124 win over Team USA in the Rising Stars Challenge.

Sabonis made the most of his modest time on the court, turning in a perfect tally from the field. The 21-year-old has been revelation in his second season, with the move to the Pacers from the Thunder opening up considerably more opportunity. Sabonis has drastically improved the majority of his numbers across the stat sheet while logging 19 starts due to injuries to Myles Turner, and his strong scoring and rebounding numbers should persist during the balance of the regular season despite what projects to be a second-unit role.

Pacers' Alex Poythress: Another DNP-Coach's Decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poythress did not see the floor in Wednesday's 108-103 win over the Nets.

Poythress is providing meager averages of 1.0 point (42.9 FG, 37.5 3Pt, 0.0 FT), 0.6 rebounds, 0.1 assists, and 0.1 steals in 4.3 minutes per game through 21 appearances this season. Since the former two-way contract player was signed for the remainder of the year in late December, he has seen the court in just 10 of the 23 contests while averaging even less playing time (3.9 minutes per game) than before. He also hasn't shot a free throw yet in 2017-18.

Pacers' Al Jefferson: Scores 13 points in eight minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferson turned in 13 points (6-7 FG, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, two blocks, and one assist in eight minutes during Wednesday's 108-103 win over the Nets.

Jefferson earned the least amount of playing time among the nine Pacers who saw the floor. However, the 33-year-old veteran simply couldn't be stopped during his brief stint on the court, managing his fifth double-digit scoring effort through 29 appearances this season. Moreover, Jefferson has recorded two rejections in each of the last two games. He's making the most of the minutes leftover by starting center Myles Turner and backup Domantas Sabonis, but Jefferson is a shell of his former self at this stage of his career.

Pacers' Myles Turner: Matches season high with 14 boards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turner totaled 11 points (2-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 14 rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 108-103 win over the Nets.

Turner matched his season high in rebounding while posting his sixth double-double through 42 appearances in 2017-18. Having contributed 15 double-doubles in 81 appearances last year as a sophomore and four through 60 games as a rookie in 2015-16, it's safe to say this season has been a struggle for the third-year center. Nevertheless, half of his double-doubles this year have taken place during the last seven games, so perhaps Turner is finally starting to trend upward.

Pacers' Cory Joseph: Grabs career-high 11 boards in Wednesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph collected 15 points (5-12 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-7 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, two steals, and two blocks in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 108-103 win over the Nets.

Joseph hauled in a career-high rebound total while filling up the box score and contributing nicely on both ends of the court. Darren Collison was ruled out for at least a couple weeks following surgery on his left knee earlier this month, but his time on the injury shelf could soon be coming to an end. With that being said, it's possible Joseph will pick up a few more starts, as Collison won't be rushed back before he's ready to return to action. The Pacers now have eight days off thanks to the All-Star break, with their next matchup scheduled for Feb. 23 versus the lowly Hawks.
