G - IND - DTD
According to Tony East, T.J. McConnell will play on a minutes limit Tuesday vs. the 76ers.
McConnell will suit up for his first appearance since December 1st with a wrist injury. It is reported that he will be on a "low" minutes limit. With Goga Bitadze and Malcolm Brogdon out of the lineup, we project him to be in the 12 minute range on Tuesday against the 76ers.
Per the official NBA Injury Report, Pacers G T.J. McConnell has been upgraded to questionable for Tuesday's game against Philadelphia.
T.J. McConnell has been out since undergoing surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right wrist in early December. This marks the first time since the surgery that McConnell has seen the questionable tag. If he does indeed return Tuesday, the already eliminated Pacers will likely limit the veteran's minutes. Monitor his availbility closer to Tuesday's tipoff if you are running McConnell out for low risk, high reward value in your DFS lineups.
Per Woj, T.J. McConnell had surgery to repair torn ligaments in his right hand and is expected to miss several months.
This may be a longer term injury than just months as it seems possible he may be out for the rest of the season. McConnell can be dropped in any league that he is rostered at this point.
T.J. McConnell is in a cast and will be out for “weeks, not days,” according to head coach Rick Carlisle.
With McConnell being absent for a few weeks, expect third-string point guard Brad Wanamaker to see a significant role moving forward.
TJ McConnell scored 18 points with seven boards, four dimes and a swipe this sunday against the kings.
With Malcolm Brogdon out, McConnell posted another solid game to remind us what he can do if he gets big minutes. He is one of the best hand cuff players to own in fantasy.
