F - IND - DTD
The Indiana Pacers are expected to pick up the $1.8 million team option for Oshae Brissett for the 2022-23 season according to the Indy Star’s James Boyd.
Brissett made 25 starts for the Pacers last season. The forward has averaged 9.6 points and 5.4 rebounds over parts of the last two seasons in Indiana. Brissett will become an unrestricted free agent following the 2022-23 season.
Oshae Brissett finished with 20 points (7-14 FG, 4-6 3-PT, 2-2 FT), ten rebounds, five assists and a steal on Sunday.
Brissett posted his fifth double-double of the season on Sunday, adding a steal for the 4th straight game. The third-year pro is up over 30 minutes per game in six-of-seven contests, taking advantage of the vacant role that Domantas Sabonis left behind with his departure. Brissett has produced some decent fantasy nights during that stretch, and will look to stay hot in a tough matchup against the Sixers on Tuesday.
Oshae Brissett totaled 17 points (4-12 FG, 4-7 3PT, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, one assist, and two steals in the Pacers’128-123 loss to the Celtics on Friday.
Brissett scored 17.0 points in the Pacers loss to the Celtic putting together another solid scoring performance, extending his streak of double-digit scoring performances to six. With Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis no longer in the picture Brissett has an opportunity to solidify his role in the starting rotation. Although he can be one dimensional in his contribution, his price-point, role, and upside, albeit non-existent at times, can make and attractive last piece flier for your fantasy lineups.
Pacers F Oshae Brissett is listed as questionable for Friday's game against Boston according to The Indy Star's James Boyd.
Brissett missed Wednesday's game against Denver with soreness in his lower back but could return as early as Friday against the Celtics. If Brissett cannot go Friday, Jalen Smith should again see an increased role off the bench.
Pacer’s F Oshae Brissett is officially out for Wednesday’s game against Denver according to Forbes Sports’ Tony East.
Brissett will miss his second straight contest dealing with this back soreness. Jalen Smith should see increased usage, especially if Goga Bitadze (foot/questionable) cannot go against Denver.
