Joe Young scored 11 points on 56 percent shooting from the field during the Pacers' Sunday win. Young added three rebounds and one assist in 31 minutes of floor time.
Young continues to see extended minutes, averaging 24 per game over his past three games. A couple of games ago Young showed just how good he could be when he went 5-for-6 from deep, but he's cooled off a little bit since then. Generally though, Young's been taking advantage of his extended opportunities, averaging 10.7 points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.0 treys on 59 percent shooting from the field over his past three contests.
Joe Young will assume starting point guard duties with Darren Collison (personal) out versus the Kings Wednesday night.
Young can be considered a punt option Wednesday night in DFS. Corey Joseph might be the better start as he will probably play more minutes than Young over the course of the game.
In 19 minutes, Young contributed 11 points (4-for-10 field-goal, 1-for-2 three-point, 2-for-3 free-throw), five assists, three rebounds, and two steals.
Young has put up some solid numbers serving as the backup point guard in George Hill's absence the past few games. In the last two games, Young has averaged 13.0 points. 6.0 assists, and 1.0 steal in 18.0 minutes of time. If Hill continues to miss time, it could open up some more opportunities and minutes for Young.
