TJ Leaf scored 13 points (6-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt), with 15 rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 22 minutes during Sunday's 108-95 win over the Bulls.
Leaf finished with a career high in rebounding while pitching in across every statistical category. It's unclear whether Sabonis (calf) will be ready to return for Tuesday's contest against the Hornets (while Turner will be out a while longer), but if not Leaf may be an intriguing option for daily leagues. The Pacers next scheduled game is Tuesday, away against the Hornets.
T.J. Leaf will start at power forward in place of the injured Myles Turner, Scott Agness reports.
It’s a surprising turn of events, given Leaf’s spot on the depth chart, but he’ll enter the starting five in place of the injured Myles Turner. Even with a starting role, the 2017 first-round pick isn’t a thrilling fantasy option, considering he’s averaged just 3.4 points and 1.9 rebounds across 8.9 minutes per game in three seasons.
T.J. Leaf scored 28 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, and dished out two assists in Wednesday's win against the Atlanta Hawks.
Leaf recorded his first double-double for the season, and posted a career-high with his 28 point game. Leaf doesn't have any fantasy value unless someone is injured.
With Domantas Sabonis out for the second straight game due to a sprained left ankle, T.J. Leaf made the most of his opportunity by scoring a career-high 18 points in 22 minutes off the bench.
Leaf has played well in Sabonis' absence. He brings some interest in daily leagues when Sabonis is out, but with Sabonis due back in the very near future, Leaf doesn't have any fantasy value despite this career night.
TJ leaf was ruled out before the Pacers' loss against Minnesota on Monday evening. This is the third straight game that Leaf has missed due to his left ankle sprain.
TJ Leaf was expected by some to make big strides in 2018. He has an unquestionable shooting ability that could be very valuable, but defensive deficiencies are the main concern for giving Leaf much time on the floor.
