Jeremy Lamb nets 11 in win

By Michael Telek

Pacers guard Jeremy Lamb scored 11 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3PT, 2-2 FT) in Friday night's win over the Atlanta Hawks. He tacked on four assists and four steals as well.

Fantasy Impact: After being held to single-digits for the first time on Wednesday night, Lamb was able to find his stroke in Atlanta. Lamb, who signed as a free agent this off-season, has been holding the fort down while Victor Oladipo remains out. Lamb is averaging 14.9 points per game, 4.9 rebounds and 2.6 assists this season.

Pacers sharpshooter Doug McDermott notched 16 points (6-7 FG, 3-3 3PT, 1-1 FT) in Friday's 110-100 win in Atlanta. He also tacked on two assists and two rebounds in his 29 minutes of action.

Fantasy Impact: A nice turnaround for McDermott after a rough performance Wednesday night against the Celtics (8 points on 3-11 FG, 0-2 3PT, 2-4 FT). McDermott has been a key cog off the bench this season. He looks to continue his strong shooting Sunday when the Pacers welcome the Hornets to town.

TJ Warren compiled 18 points (8-18 FG, 1-4 3PT, 1-1 FT) four rebounds, one assist and two steals across 31 minutes in Friday's 110-100 win over the Hawks.

Fantasy Impact: Warren has scored at least 12 points and logged one steal in his last four games. He has scored double figures in 11 straight contests. Warren continues to be a viable option with Victor Oladipo sidelined, averaging 18.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 1.1 steal and 1.3 triples across 26 games this season. The Pacers next scheduled game is Sunday, home against the Hornets.

Myles Turner generated 11 points (5-10 FG, 0-4 3PT, 1-2 FT) five rebounds, one assist and two turnovers across 26 minutes in Friday's 110-100 win over the Hawks.

Fantasy Impact: Turner has scored double figures for the second consecutive game, but did not block a shot for the first time since December 4th. He hasn't lived up to his draft status this year, averaging 10.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 2.2 blocks across 18 games this season. Turner is a buy-low candidate and will look to get things going in Sunday's matchup against the Hornets.

Category: Game Recaps

Domantas Sabonis provided 12 points (6-11 FG) 14 rebounds, two assists, one steal and six turnovers in Friday's 110-100 win over the Hawks.

Fantasy Impact: Sabonis has now posted his 11th consecutive double-double, giving him a total of 21 on the year. The six turnovers in Friday's win were a season-high. Sabonis continues to provide top-40 value, averaging 18.0 points, 13.5 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.5 blocks across 24 games this season. The Pacers next scheduled game is Sunday, home against the Hornets.

Category: Game Recaps

Malcolm Brogdon scored a team-high 19 points (7-16 FG, 1-3 3PT, 4-6 FT) with 12 assists and eight rebounds across 32 minutes in Friday's 110-100 win over the Hawks.

Fantasy Impact: Brogdon was two rebounds shy from logging his first triple double of the season. He's been on a tear recently, averaging 24.0 points, 10.0 assists, 5.0 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 1.5 triples in his last two games. Brogdon will look to continue his strong play in Sunday's matchup against the Hornets.

Aaron Holiday totaled 18 points (8-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, two steals and one assist across 27 minutes in Wednesday's 122-117 win over the Celtics.

Fantasy Impact: Holiday was second in the team in scoring and has now scored double figures in three of his last six games. He can be used a streamer and can be owned in deep-league formats. Holiday is averaging 9.1 points, 2.6 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 0.9 steals across 23 games this year. The Pacers next scheduled game is Friday, away against the Hawks.

Category: Game Recaps

Justin Holiday contributed 17 points (7-14 FG, 3-6 3PT), six rebounds and three steals across 32 minutes in Wednesday's 122-117 win over the Celtics.

Fantasy Impact: Holiday has only scored double figures for the second time in his last five games. He did play the second most amount of minutes in Wednesday's win. Holiday can be used a streamer and can be owned in deep-league formats. He is averaging 8.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.6 blocks across 25 games this year. The Pacers next scheduled game is Friday, away against the Hawks.

T.J. McConnell compiled six points (3-3 FG), 11 assists, two rebounds and one steal across 20 minutes in Saturday's 104-103 win over the Knicks.

Fantasy Impact: McConnell dished out a season-high 11 assists in Saturday's win. With Malcolm Brogdon ruled out in Saturday's game, McConnell logged 20 minutes for the time in his last seven games. He doesn't play enough minutes to be considered anything more than a deep-league option. The Pacers next scheduled game is Tuesday, home against the Clippers.

Fantasy Impact: Sampson will miss his third straight game as continues to recover from a back injury. TJ Leaf would see an increase in minutes with Sampson sidelined.

Goga Bitadze will be available Friday against the Rockets after missing three games with a concussion. (Source: J. Michael on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Myles Turner (ankle) out, Bitadze could draw the start at center. In his two starts this season, the rookie big has averaged 7.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 4.0 blocks and 3.5 assists.

Victor Oladipo was sent to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants on Tuesday as he continues to rehab from a torn quad tendon suffered last season. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Oladipo has reportedly been coming along nicely in his recovery, and he'll now get some time to practice in the G League before making his return to the NBA. According to Charania, there is still "no timetable" for his return. Keep rolling with Malcolm Brogdon as Indiana's high-usage stat-stuffer in the meantime.

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.

Fantasy Impact: 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.

Edmond Sumner has been diagnosed with a "non-displaced fracture in his right hand" and is likely to miss multiple weeks with the injury. (Source: Indiana Pacers on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It's a relatively serious injury, and the guard may not see the court again until December, depending on the severity. Sumner has averaged 7.0 points, 2.0 assists and 1.7 steals in three appearances this season.

Davon Reed signs with Miami

Wed, Sep 4th 9:39pm EDT
By Shaan Hoda

Davon Reed, who last played for the Pacers, has signed with the Miami Heat. He will be back in Miami where he played for the Hurricanes in his collegiate career. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Reed could certainly crack the roster if he puts up strong numbers in preseason, but is well off the fantasy radar.

Wesley Matthews and the Bucks have agreed to terms on a contract. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Matthews will help fill the void left by Malcolm Brogdon's departure. He should see quality minutes, and there's a chance he could be the everyday starting shooting guard. Matthews averaged 12.2 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.8 steals, and 2.2 triples made in 69 games for the Knicks/Mavericks/Pacers last season.

Kyle O'Quinn agreed to a one-year contract with the Philadelphia 76ers. (Source: Keith Pompey on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: O'Quinn was added to the 76ers for depth purposes, and will play a small role off the bench. He averaged 3.5 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 45 games for the Pacers last season.

Bojan Bogdanovic and the Jazz have come to terms on a four-year, $73 million contract. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bogdanovic is coming off a career year with the Pacers, and his signing could spell the end of Derick Favors tenure with Utah. If the Jazz elect to go with a small starting lineup, he could be used as a stretch four. Bogdanovic averaged 18.0 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 2.0 triples in 81 games for Pacers last season.

Thaddeus Young has signed a three-year, 41 million dollar deal with the Chicago Bulls. (Source: Chris Haynes on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Young signing with the Chicago Bulls is great for his fantasy value, since he'll have the same kind of role he had with the Pacers.

Darren Collison announced on Friday that he intends to retire after a 10-year career. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Collison was set to secure an estimated $10-$12 million annually in free agency, but ultimately decided to call it a career. Collins, 31, was drafted by the New Orleans Hornets in 2009, and played for Pacers, Mavericks, Clippers, and Kings. He will retire with a career average of 12.5 points, 5.0 assists, and 1.2 steals in 708 games.
