Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey is doubtful for Sunday's game against Golden State after spraining his left ankle late Friday night.

Luis Scola, F2/9/2015 11:40:00 AM
Description: Pacers power forward Luis Scola's fantasy value Monday will rest on whether Ian Mahinmi (ankle) returns to the court.
Insight: Scola had 15 points and 14 rebounds as he notched his fifth double-double of the season on Sunday, but Mahinmi's possible return would cut into his 26 minutes of court time.

Description: Indiana backup center Ian Mahinmi (sprained right ankle) has been upgraded to questionable for Monday's game against San Antonio.

Description: Pacers power forward Luis Scola should also see time at backup center with both Lavoy Allen and Ian Mahinma sidelined.

Description: Indiana backup center Ian Mahinmi (sprained right ankle) isn't expected to play for a while.
Insight: Mahinmi's x-rays were negative, but it's a severe sprain and he's a big guy. Lavoy Allen will also miss Friday's game, so Roy Hibbert should be in for a lot of minutes. Luis Scola figures to get the backup work.
Roy Hibbert, C2/4/2015 9:36:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert posted a double-double during Wednesday's victory versus Detroit.
Insight: He was very efficient, going 8-of-11 from the field for 16 points, 12 boards, three assists, three blocks, and two turnovers. Hibbert is a top 100 option.
George Hill, G2/4/2015 9:34:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill scored a team-high 20 points during Wednesday's win over the Pistons.
Insight: Hill went 8-of-12 from the field, but just 3-of-8 from the line. He did have six assists, three rebounds, one 3-pointer, and one block as well. Hill is now starting and should be owned everywhere.
Paul George, SF2/3/2015 1:02:00 PM
Description: Pacers president Larry Bird said Paul George could return this season according to the team's twitter page.
Insight: All this really means is that the team will not hold George out of the lineup if he is healthy. No matter what position the Pacers are in this spring, George will return if he can. The likelihood he returns, however, is still very much in doubt.
George Hill, G2/2/2015 3:18:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill is expected to be the starter on Wednesday.
Insight: Hill has been limited in minutes, but that's up to 28 now and he is going to be installed back in the starting lineup. Despite averaging under 20 minutes over the past five games he's averaging 13 ppg. He's now a viable fantasy option.
Roy Hibbert, C1/29/2015 9:18:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert posted a double-double in Thursday's victory over the Knicks.
Insight: Hibbert had 18 points and 10 rebounds in what was his most impressive performance for some time. He shot 9-of-11 from the field and also had an assist, a block and a steal. If only he could consistently produce these kinds of numbers.
Rodney Stuckey, G1/29/2015 9:14:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey had 22 points to lead Indiana over New York, 103-82, on Thursday.
Insight: Stuckey was 8-of-13 from the field with five rebounds and three assists. The 22 points were a team-high.
Lavoy Allen, C1/29/2015 8:32:00 PM
Description: Pacers backup center Lavoy Allen left Thursday's game with a sore right knee versus the Knicks.
Insight: Allen walked into the locker room under his own power with a slight limp according to Pacers reporter Scott Agness. He had eight points, five rebounds and one assist in nine minutes before leaving.
George Hill, G1/29/2015 5:49:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill will be on a minutes cap on Thursday versus the Knicks.
Insight: Hill has been limited to 20 minutes per game over the last three games and will be held to the same limit. He has still produced in the reduced court time, however, averaging 14.3 ppg, 2.7 apg, 1.0 spg and 1.0 3-pointers per game over that stretch.
C.J. Miles, G1/29/2015 5:40:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles will play on Thursday versus the Knicks.
Insight: Frank Vogel is likely going to ease him back into the rotation by playing him in spots according to Pacers reporter Scott Agness. He is a risky play in daily fantasy because it is unclear how much he will actually play.
George Hill, G1/29/2015 11:38:00 AM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill missed Wednesday's practice session, but could still play Thursday against the Knicks.
Insight: It's possible the team was just protecting him. Hill has played exactly 20 minutes in each of the last three games and is averaging 14.3 ppg, 2.6 rpg, 2.6 apg. Don't expect him to see any more minutes as the Pacers are expected to limit his court time for the rest of the season.
C.J. Miles, G1/29/2015 11:34:00 AM
Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles did not play on Sunday or Tuesday and is questionable for Thursday, but he was seen working at the morning shootaround.
Insight: That's good news for Miles owners (12.4 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 1.3 apg). Bad news is that George Hill has played well the past three games which cuts down on available guard minutes.
Rodney Stuckey, G1/27/2015 9:32:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey had a nice line during Tuesday's loss to the Raptors.
Insight: Stuckey went 8-of-16 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line for 22 points, seven rebounds, two assists, and three turnovers. The 22 points were a team-high.
George Hill, G1/27/2015 4:21:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill will be on a minutes limit for the foreseeable future.
Insight: He will likely top out around 20 minutes per game, but even with that, Hill is still worth owning in all leagues. He will be the starting point guard, and will eventually get the restriction lifted.
C.J. Miles, G1/27/2015 1:23:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles did not play on Sunday and is expected to miss Tuesday as well.
Insight: Miles (12.4 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 1.3 apg) is dealing with a left groin strain. Rodney Stuckey will likely start with C.J. Watson also seeing more minutes.
Roy Hibbert, C1/25/2015 9:00:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert posted a double-double in the, 106-99, victory over the Magic on Sunday.
Insight: Hibbert barely had a double-double with 11 points and 13 rebounds. He also had a block. There are better options at the center position.
David West, F1/25/2015 8:57:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward David West scored a team-high 20 points in Sunday's victory over the Magic.
Insight: West was 8-of-15 from the field with four rebounds, three assists and two steals. West only averages about 12.6 ppg and 7.0 rpg but those are big numbers for the offensively starved Pacers.
C.J. Miles, G1/25/2015 5:24:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles will not play on Sunday.
Insight: Miles is dealing with a left groin strain. Rodney Stuckey will likely start with C.J. Watson also seeing more minutes.
C.J. Miles, G1/25/2015 10:23:00 AM
Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles is doubtful for Sunday's game against Orlando due to a strained left groin.
Insight: Miles had been scoring well over the past few games, so this hurts fantasy owners. He averaged 20.5 ppg in his two previous outings and had eight points in seven minutes before the injury on Friday.
George Hill, G1/25/2015 10:21:00 AM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill played Friday's game against Miami (strained left groin) and although reportedly is sore is expected to play Sunday.
Insight: He had 13 points in 20 minutes Friday and is an upgrade from C.J. Watson and Donald Sloan. He just has to stay healthy.
Luis Scola, F1/23/2015 10:08:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward Luis Scola scored a team-high 14 points off the bench during Friday's loss against the Heat.
Insight: He did so in just 15 minutes of action, and also had seven rebounds. Scola went 5-of-8 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line, but is really not much of an option these days.
George Hill, G1/23/2015 11:23:00 AM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill is questionable for Friday's game against Miami due to his strained left groin.
Insight: The tag is an upgrade as he's miss the last 11 games. C.J. Watson and Donald Sloan fill in for Hill and are both low-end options.
C.J. Watson, G1/21/2015 9:57:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard C.J. Watson scored a team-high 13 points during Wednesday's loss to the Hawks.
Insight: He also had four rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer, two steals, and three turnovers. Watson is barely worthy of a roster spot.
David West, F1/21/2015 9:36:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward David West scored 17 points during Saturday's loss against the Kings.
Insight: West also had five rebounds, three assists, three blocks, one steal, and one turnover.
George Hill, G1/21/2015 11:48:00 AM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill will miss Wednesday's game versus the Hawks.
Insight: This isn't much of a surprise. Hill has missed 11 straight games, and he has only played five games this season. C.J. Watson and Donald Sloan will continue to fill in for Hill.
C.J. Miles, G1/19/2015 8:17:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles came off the bench and led the team with 23 points versus the Rockets.
Insight: Miles shot 50 percent from the field, including 4-for-11 from the 3-point line. He also had six rebounds, five steals and two assists.
Roy Hibbert, C1/17/2015 9:41:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert posted a double-double, along with six blocks on Saturday night.
Insight: He had 12 points and 14 rebounds, as well as three assists and three turnovers. Hibbert is still barely a top-100 player.
David West, F1/17/2015 9:39:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward David West scored a team-high 19 points during Saturday's overtime loss to the Hornets.
Insight: He also had eight boards, two assists, two steals, two blocks, and three turnovers. West is a top-85 option.
Roy Hibbert, C1/16/2015 10:29:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert led Indiana with 14 points versus the Pistons.
Insight: Indiana continues to have trouble scoring with Hibbert leading the way with just 14 points. He was 7-of-11 from the field. He has two blocks too but just three rebounds.
C.J. Miles, G1/13/2015 9:38:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles scored a team-high 22 points during Tuesday's loss to the Timberwolves.
Insight: He also had five rebounds, two 3-pointers, and one steal. Miles is still risky option, with owners never knowing the amount of playing time that he will receive.
Roy Hibbert, C1/13/2015 8:52:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert received a flagrant 2 foul, and officials ejected him for Tuesday's game versus the Timberwolves.
Insight: Hibbert threw Gorgui Dieng to the ground, so there was no debate about the ejection. The NBA suspended Kevin Garnett a game for his ejection from Monday, and the league might do the same for Hibbert. He had 10 points, eight rebounds, one assist and one block in 21 minutes before leaving Tuesday.
Rodney Stuckey, G1/13/2015 2:06:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey is questionable for Tuesday's game against Minnesota due to a case of food poisoning.
Insight: Stuckey has been a solid contributor this season averaging 11.6 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 3.0 apg. C.J. Miles could see big minutes if Stuckey is unavailable.
George Hill, G1/12/2015 4:51:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill (groin) is out on Tuesday.
Insight: Donald Sloan and Rodney Stuckey will continue to hold down the fort at the point guard position.
David West, F1/10/2015 10:16:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward David West exploded for 28 points and nine rebounds against the 76ers on Saturday.
Insight: The 28 points was a season-high for West, and the nine rebounds was the most for West since Dec. 26. He is averaging 12.0 ppg and 6.7 rpg this season.
Roy Hibbert, C1/9/2015 9:57:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert posted a double-double during Friday's overtime victory against Boston.
Insight: He had 19 points and 11 boards, along with five blocks, four assists, and two turnovers. Hibbert is a top-100 option, but owners have expected more.
Rodney Stuckey, G1/9/2015 11:09:00 AM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey is questionable for Friday's game against Boston due to a groin injury.
Insight: Stuckey could see plenty of work if he can get on the coaurt with George Hill and C.J. watson likely sidelined, but he did miss Wednesday's game, so is more than likely a game-time decision.
C.J. Watson, G1/9/2015 11:07:00 AM
Description: Pacers point guard C.J. Watson is questionable for Friday's game against Boston due to a sore left foot.
Insight: The Pacers are very short on guards with George Hill out and Rodney Stuckey also dealing with an injury.
George Hill, G1/9/2015 11:05:00 AM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill (groin) will not play Friday.
Insight: Donald Sloan should see all the minutes he can handle as Hill will likely be joined by C.J. Watson (sore left foot) and Rodney Stuckey (sore right groinn) on the sidelines.
Lavoy Allen, C1/9/2015 11:03:00 AM
Description: Indiana backup center Lavoy Allen could see 30 plus minutes Friday if Riy Hibbert can't recover from his sprained ankle.
Insight: Allen played 33 minutes in relief Wednesdy, posting a very respectable 12 points and nine rebounds. He's could be a nice value Friday versus Boston.
Roy Hibbert, C1/9/2015 10:59:00 AM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert is questionable for Friday's game against Boston due to sprained right ankle.
Insight: He could barely walk after the game Wednesday, according to those in the clubhouse, so he's probably a lot closer to a doubtful tag. Lavoy Allen would see big minutes if Hibbert can't go.
C.J. Watson, G1/7/2015 4:51:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard C.J. Watson said he expects to play on Wednesday against the Warriors according to Indy Star Sports.
Insight: We would normally say check back at gametime, but the Pacers are on the west coast, so little can be done at 10:30 EST if he is out. Fantasy owners should take him for his word and place him in the lineup for Wednesday unless they have a far better fantasy option.
Donald Sloan, GHot1/5/2015 10:38:00 AM
Description: Pacers point guard Donald Sloan racked up 16 points, seven rebounds and nine assists in Sunday's game against the Lakers.
Insight: Sloan is playing a nice all-around game and fantasy owners probably don't want George Hill or C.J. Watson to return anytime soon. Sloan has averaged 13 ppg, 7.5 rpg, 7.5 apg over the last two contests.
Donald Sloan, GHot1/4/2015 10:28:00 AM
Description: Pacers point guard Donald Sloan could see a lot of playing time Monday with George Hill sidelined and C.J. Watson questionable.
Insight: Sloan posted a nice 10 point, eight rebound, six assist night Friday in 33 minutes and is a viable fantasy option.
C.J. Watson, G1/4/2015 10:26:00 AM
Description: Pacers point guard C.J. Watson (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the LA Lakers.
Insight: Watson just can't get and stay healthy. With George Hill also sidelined by a groin injury, Donald Sloan should see as many minutes as he can handle. Sloan posted a nice 10 point, eight rebound, six assist night Friday and is a viable fantasy option.
George Hill, G1/3/2015 6:28:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill (groin) will miss the next three games.
Insight: Donald Sloan and C.J. Watson will fill the void during Hill's absence.
C.J. Miles, G1/2/2015 10:55:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles came off the bench and led Indiana with 22 points.
Insight: That should sound familiar because Miles came off the bench to lead Indiana with 25 points on New Year's Eve. He made six 3-pointers on Friday, and he is now 11-for-19 from the 3-point line over the last two games. But since Miles will not be able to maintain that pace, he is not worth picking up in most leagues, however, keep an eye on him.
C.J. Miles, G12/31/2014 5:32:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles came off the bench and led Indiana with 25 points.
Insight: Miles made five 3-pointers in 10 attempts and shot 8-of-10 at the free-throw line. He also had seven rebounds, four assists, a block and steal in what was his best fantasy output in a week.
George Hill, G12/31/2014 5:28:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill shot 50 percent from the field and scored 20 points against the Heat.
Insight: Hill was also 50 percent from the 3-point line as he led all Pacers starters in scoring. Hill came into the game averaging 12.8 ppg, 4.3 rpg and 2.8 apg this season.
Chris Copeland, F12/29/2014 9:34:00 PM
Description: Pacers small forward Chris Copeland came off the bench to lead the team in scoring against the Bulls.
Insight: The Pacers offense continues to be sporatic, receiving contributions from everywhere, which makes it hard to determine who to go with in fantasy. On Monday, Copeland shot 7-of-10 and made two free throws on his way to 17 points.
C.J. Miles, G12/29/2014 12:12:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles is dealing with a respiratory infection and missed Saturday's game.
Insight: Miles has limted fantasy value even when healthy with a 10.9 ppg average and little contributions elsewhere.
C.J. Watson, G12/27/2014 10:44:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard C.J. Watson came off the bench to score 17 points and grab nine rebounds on Saturday.
Insight: Watson didn't start but still played 30 minutes. He also had five assists and three steals while shooting 70 percent from the field and 75 percent from the 3-point line.
Rodney Stuckey, G12/27/2014 10:29:00 AM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey suffered a facial contusion during the third quarter of Friday's game and is questionable for Saturday's game against Brooklyn
Insight: Andre Drummond hit him in the face and maybe poked Stuckey in the eye and he never returned. He is averaging 12.0 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 2.9 apg. George Hill and C.J. Watson would gobble up his playing time if he can't see well enough to play Saturday.
Roy Hibbert, C12/26/2014 9:52:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert led Indiana with 19 points in Friday's loss.
Insight: The scoring is nice, but Hibbert only grabbed five rebounds. Hibbert did have a tough matchup against Andre Drummond, but with no assists, steals or blocks, it would have been nice to see Hibbert get close to a double-double with points and rebounds. On a positive note, he did make 9-of-10 free throws.
Rodney Stuckey, G12/26/2014 9:34:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey suffered a facial contusion during the third quarter of Friday's game and went to the locker room according to Indy Star Sports.
Insight: Andre Drummond hit him in the face and maybe poked Stuckey in the eye. He had to be helped to the locker room. Stuckey is out for the game. Before he left, Stuckey had nine points, five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes.
Damjan Rudez, F12/25/2014 10:36:00 AM
Description: Pacers backup forward Damjan Rudez is questionable for Friday's game against Detroit due to an upper respiratory infection.
Insight: He's buried deep on the depth chart, averaging 4.0 ppg, so this shouldn't effect any fantasy owners.
George Hill, G12/23/2014 9:36:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill came off the bench and scored 15 points on Tuesday.
Insight: Hill shot 5-of-8 overall and 2-for-3 from the 3-point line in 21 minutes versus the Pelicans. The 15 points led Indiana in scoring. Without a go-to scorer, Hill has a chance to be the guy on any given night if he gets enough minutes.
George Hill, G12/23/2014 4:06:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill is expected to make his season debut Tuesday,
Insight: Hill has missed Indiana's first 28 games with a left knee contusion he sustained in a preseason contest against Minnesota on Oct. 21. He averaged 10.3 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists last season. He's going to play limited minutes.
David West, F12/21/2014 10:52:00 AM
Description: Pacers power forward David West scored a team-high 19 points during Saturday's loss against the Nuggets.
Insight: West posted a double-double with 10 rebounds as well. He went 8-of-22 from the field and 2-of-5 from the line, so his percentages do not look great from Saturday. He is averaging 12.8 ppg and 6.8 rpg on the season.
Rodney Stuckey, G12/15/2014 9:20:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey continued his strong play against the Lakers on Monday night.
Insight: He finished with 20 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists, and went 6-of-14 from the floor and 8-of-10 from the stripe. Stuckey needs to be owned everywhere.
C.J. Miles, G12/15/2014 4:14:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles left Friday's game with a bruised left knee, but is probable for Monday's game against the LA Lakers.
Insight: Miles has limted fantasy value with just a 9.1 ppg average and little contributions elsewhere.
C.J. Watson, G12/13/2014 9:38:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard C.J. Watson scored a season-high 23 points on Saturday.
Insight: Watson has seen a lot more opportunities to see an increase in fantasy value. He is averaging 10 ppg and 4.7 apg this month. In the last two games, Watson has played over 30 minutes in each game and is shooting 52 percent from the floor and 60 percent at the 3-point line while averaging 18 ppg.
Solomon Hill, F12/12/2014 10:05:00 PM
Description: Pacers forward Solomon Hill lost his starting job, but scored a team-high 16 points in Friday's loss to the Raptors.
Insight: He played 30 minutes, partly do to the injury to C.J Miles. Hill went 5-of-8 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line. He also had three rebounds, three assists, three blocks, and two turnovers.
C.J. Miles, G12/12/2014 9:01:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles left Friday's game with a bruised left knee.
Insight: Miles will not return. Solomon Hill will see more action.
C.J. Miles, G12/10/2014 9:50:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles scored a team-high 30 points during Wednesday's loss to the Clippers.
Insight: He drained seven 3-pointers and also had four rebounds, two assists, one steal, and four turnovers. Miles is still not relevant option.
Rodney Stuckey, G12/8/2014 9:36:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey led the team in scoring on Monday as Indiana continues to have trouble scoring.
Insight: Stuckey scored 15 points, which was tied with C.J. Miles as the team-high versus the Hawks. Stuckey also had four rebounds, three assists and a steal.
Ian Mahinmi, C12/8/2014 1:53:00 PM
Description: Indiana backup center Ian Mahinmi suffered a torn plantar fascia Friday and will miss the next up to two months.
Insight: Lavoy Allen should see additional minutes as Roy Hibbert's backup or the team could go "small" and play more with Luis Scola.
David West, F12/6/2014 9:01:00 AM
Description: Pacers power forward David West scored 16 points on Friday.
Insight: The problem for Indiana is West continues to lead the Pacers in scoring during most games despite not reaching the 20-point mark. It was nearly enough, but Indiana lost to Sacramento, 102-101. West also had eight rebounds and an assist.
Roy Hibbert, C12/3/2014 9:28:00 AM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert posted a double-double in Tuesday's loss to the Suns.
Insight: He had 15 points and 10 rebounds, along wiith one assist, two steals, one block, and two turnovers. Hibbert is a top-40 fantasy player.
George Hill, G12/2/2014 11:52:00 AM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill's "left knee contusion" actually also included a left quad tear.
Insight: Now we know why the rehab is taking so long and the mid-December return seems more reasonable. C.J. Watson, just back from injury himself, and Donald Sloan will hold down the fort until then.
Roy Hibbert, C12/2/2014 11:45:00 AM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert (sprained left ankle) made it through Monday's practice and coach Frank Vogel says he expects him to play against the Suns.
Insight: With Hibbert (13.1 ppg, 7.8 rpg, 1.8 apg, 2.8 bpg) out of the lineup the minutes went to Ian Mahinmi and Lavoy Allen, but neither proved to be fantasy worthy.
David West, F11/29/2014 9:57:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward David West scored 14 points on Saturday against the Cavaliers.
Insight: Sadly, that was the team-high in the 109-97 loss in Cleveland. Hill chipped in three rebounds, three assists and a block as well.
Rodney Stuckey, G11/29/2014 9:23:00 AM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey scored a team-high 24 points in Friday's win over the Magic.
Insight: Stuckey went 9-of-15 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line, and also had two rebounds, one assist, one block, and three turnovers.
David West, F11/29/2014 9:22:00 AM
Description: Pacers power forward David West played 24 minutes in his first game of the season.
Insight: West was not gun-shy, as he attempted a team-high 17 shots, and made eight of them for 18 points. He also had six rebounds, four assists, one steal, one 3-pointer, and one turnover. He will be a solid option for owners.
David West, F11/28/2014 2:16:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward David West (sprained right ankle) will make his season debut Friday versus Orlando.
Insight: West practiced in full on Tuesday. He averaged 14.0 ppg, 6.8 rpg, 2.8 apg, but with all the Pacers injuries, he would have a chance to improve on those numbers if he can just stay on the floor. He's scheduled to start Friday night.
Roy Hibbert, C11/28/2014 2:15:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert (sprained left ankle) has been downgraded to out for Friday's game against Orlando.
Insight: Ian Mahinmi will in during Hibbert's absence, but all you can normally expect to get from him is rebounds. Lavoy Allen is actually a better offensive player, but neither is a fantasy worthy replacement to Hibbert (13.1 ppg, 7.8 rpg, 1.8 apg, 2.8 bpg).
C.J. Watson, G11/28/2014 2:10:00 PM
Description: Indiana point guard C.J. Watson is expected to play Friday night.
Insight: It will be his first action this season. He'll likely backup Donald Sloan, but we aren't sure of the PG minutes distribution.
David West, F11/28/2014 11:59:00 AM
Description: Pacers power forward David West (sprained right ankle) hopes to make his season debut Friday versus Orlando.
Insight: West practiced in full on Tuesday. He averaged 14.0 ppg, 6.8 rpg, 2.8 apg, but with all the Pacers injuries, he would have a chance to improve on those numbers if he can just get on the floor.
Roy Hibbert, C11/28/2014 11:55:00 AM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert (sprained left ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against Orlando.
Insight: Ian Mahinmi would fill in during Hibbert's absence, but all you can normally expect to get from him is rebounds. Lavoy Allen is actually a better offensive player, but neither would be fantasy worthy to replace Hibbert (13.1 ppg, 7.8 rpg, 1.8 apg, 2.8 bpg).
Rodney Stuckey, G11/26/2014 10:53:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey scored a team-high 22 points in Wednesday's loss to the Spurs.

David West, F11/25/2014 12:09:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward David West (sprained right ankle) went through a tough workout Saturday and could be close to returning to the court.
Insight: Luis Scola will continue to start until that point, but will return to the bench when West is ready to play.
George Hill, G11/25/2014 12:05:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill was expected to miss three weeks due to a left knee contusion, but that now appears to be a huge underestimate.
Insight: Beat writer Candace Buckner isn't expecting him back until sometime in December and not likely the first week. Donald Sloan shouls continue to see a heavy load for a couple of more weeks.
Paul George, SF11/25/2014 11:58:00 AM
Description: Pacers forward Paul George recently said his goal was to return and play this season.
Insight: We still don't think he'll play this season, but we like his work ethic.
Donald Sloan, G11/24/2014 10:59:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard Donald Sloan had a big night during Monday's win over the Mavericks.
Insight: He was 10-of-13 from the field and 6-of-9 from the line for 29 points. Sloan also had five assists, three 3-pointers, two rebounds, one steal, and one turnover. He will not score this much on a nightly basis, but will have a chance to contribute all season.
Ian Mahinmi, C11/24/2014 2:31:00 PM
Description: Indiana backup center Ian Mahinmi will get a start with Roy Hibbert's ankle injury already knocking him out of Monday's game.
Insight: Mahinmi did post a solid 12 points and 10 rebound on Saturday, but you can't depend on his scoring ability.
Roy Hibbert, C11/24/2014 2:27:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert (sprained left ankle) has been ruled out of Monday's game against Dallas.
Insight: Ian Mahinmi will fill in during Hibbert's absence, but all you can normally expect to get from him is rebounds. he did score 12 in Saturday's game after Hibbert left, so he could be worthy watching.
Rodney Stuckey, G11/24/2014 2:26:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey has been upgraded to probable for Monday after getting through the shootaround.
Insight: Stuckey is dealing with a left-wrist problem. Given all the injuries to the Pacers, if he could stay healthy he could produce fantasy-worthy numbers.
Roy Hibbert, C11/22/2014 8:10:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert is doubtful to return Saturday with a sprained left ankle.
Insight: He left the game with two points, two rebounds, two, assists, and one block. Ian Mahinmi will fill in during Hibbert's absence.
C.J. Miles, G11/22/2014 2:55:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles will not play on Saturday against the Suns due to a calf injury.
Insight: Miles has played just four minutes in Indiana's last seven game because of his calf injury and a migraine. When he returns, he still isn't a great fantasy option for standard leagues.
Roy Hibbert, C11/19/2014 9:27:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert had his fourth double-double of the season on Wednesday against the Hornets.
Insight: Hibbert had 18 points and 11 rebounds, while shooting 50 percent from the field. He also dished two assists and had a block. Hibbert came into the game averaging 13.6 ppg and 8.1 rpg this season.
Solomon Hill, F11/19/2014 9:21:00 PM
Description: Pacers forward Solomon Hill tipped in the game-winning shot as Indiana defeated Charlotte, 88-86, on Wednesday.
Insight: As for fantasy numbers, Hill posted numbers below his season averages on Wednesday. He had six points and five rebounds to go with three turnovers.
Luis Scola, F11/16/2014 10:33:00 AM
Description: Pacers power forward Luis Scola made 10-of-12 shots from the field to help record his second double-double this season.
Insight: Scola had 21 points and 11 rebounds while also contributing a steal and two blocks. His only blemish was his 1-for-4 at the line.
Solomon Hill, F11/15/2014 10:59:00 PM
Description: Pacers forward Solomon Hill scored 21 points on 6-of-14 shooting Saturday against the Bulls.
Insight: Three different Pacers players, Hill, Luis Scola, and A.J. Price, all scored 21 points each. Hill also had 12 rebounds, a season-high, to record his first double-double of the season.
Solomon Hill, F11/14/2014 9:26:00 PM
Description: Pacers forward Solomon Hill scored 12 points in Friday's loss to Denver.
Insight: He was 5-of-16 from the field, and also chipped in five rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer, and one turnover, in 37 minutes of action. Hill is worthy of being on fantasy rosters.
C.J. Miles, G11/14/2014 10:40:00 AM
Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles is probable for Friday's game against Denver.
Insight: Miles has been dealing with a migraine which has caused him to miss the last four games. He's been much too inconsistent to use for fantasy owners, scoring 10 points one night and zero the next.
Luis Scola, FCold11/13/2014 3:50:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward Luis Scola had a poor outing Saturday versus Washington.
Insight: Scola has had a chance to show he's worthy of more minutes, but has come up short. He's averaging 6.9 oog, 7.3 rpg while starting for David West in 23 mpg. That's not enough to unseat the starter when he returns from his ankle injury.
David West, F11/13/2014 3:49:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward David West (sprained right ankle) will not play for at least two more games, according to Indy Star reporter Autmn Allison.
Insight: Luis Scola will continue to start, while Lavoy Allen will see more minutes, during West's absence.
Roy Hibbert, C11/12/2014 10:03:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert recorded a double-double in Wednesday's victory against the Heat.
Insight: He had 16 points, 15 rebounds, two assists, three blocks, but also five turnovers. Owners will deal with the turnovers if Hibbert continues to produce in other categories.
A.J. Price, PG11/10/2014 9:35:00 PM
Description: Pacers guard A.J. Price scored 22 points off the bench versus the Jazz.
Insight: Price played 25 minutes and made 8-of-12 shots from the field, including 3-for-4 from downtown. Price is an intriguing fantasy play in the injury-plagued Pacers. He isn't a must-add but keep an eye on him.
Roy Hibbert, C11/10/2014 9:28:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert scored 21 points on Monday against the Jazz.
Insight: The 29 points is his season-high. Hibbert shot 11-of-21 and made all seven of his free-throw attempts. He also had five rebounds, an assist, steal and block.
Luis Scola, F11/9/2014 11:08:00 AM
Description: Pacers power forward Luis Scola had a poor outing Saturday versus Washington.
Insight: He had only five points, eight rebounds, and four turnovers, but if Roy Hibbert misses an extended period of time, Scola will have a chance for increased production.
Solomon Hill, F11/8/2014 9:24:00 PM
Description: Pacers' Solomon Hill had a great night in Saturday's loss to the Wizards.
Insight: He ws 10-of-19 from the field and 7-of-11 from the line for his 28 points. Hill also had six rebounds and three steals. With all the injuries Indiana is dealing with, Hill should continue to be a decent option.
Roy Hibbert, C11/8/2014 8:43:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert left Saturday's game with a bruised left knee and will not return.
Insight: Hibbert being out for an extended period of time would kill the Pacers. We will update the extent of the injury once we know more.
Roy Hibbert, C11/8/2014 7:58:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert left Saturday's game with a bruised left knee.
Insight: Hibbert is questionable to return, but this is just awful news for the Pacers and Hibbert-owners. We will update his status once we know more.
Roy Hibbert, C11/7/2014 10:11:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert tied a season-high with 22 points versus the Celtics on Friday.
Insight: Hibbert also had 11 rebounds and has shot 8-of-16 from the field and 6-for-6 at the line. He also had 11 rebounds and four blocks.
Rodney Stuckey, G11/5/2014 6:43:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey is out with a foot injury agaisnt the Wizards on Wednesday according to the team's twitter page. UPDATE: Stuckey will miss at least three games.
Insight: Even in the games he has played, Stuckey is averaging below 20 minutes per game because of his foot ailment. With Stuckey out, C.J. Miles will receive more minutes at shooting guard.
Roy Hibbert, C11/4/2014 9:27:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert had a solid game in Tuesday's loss to the Bucks.
Insight: He was 7-of-10 from the field for 16 points. Hibbert also had seven rebounds, one assist, two turnovers, but five blocks as well. Owners would like to see the tunovers go down and the rebounds go up, but nobody can complain about the amount of blocked shots.
Rodney Stuckey, G11/4/2014 11:16:00 AM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey was limited in Monday's practice and is questionable for Tuesday's game against Milwaukee
Insight: Stuckey has been dealing with soreness in his foot for quite some time. Even if he plays, it will be limited minutes and his fantasy value is minimal.
Roy Hibbert, C11/1/2014 10:06:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert scored a double-double on Saturday, but it wasn't enough as Atlanta beat Indiana, 102-92, on Saturday.
Insight: Hibbert led the way as Indiana was missing George Hill and Rodney Stuckey on top of Paul George, who is, of course, out with his major leg injury. Hibbert had 14 points and 12 rebounds.
Rodney Stuckey, G11/1/2014 9:00:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey left Saturday's game against the Hawks with a sore foot.
Insight: Stuckey has been dealing with soreness in his foot for quite some time, so he may have aggravated the injury. This is not good news for Indiana, who was already missing George Hill and C.J. Watson on Saturday.
C.J. Miles, G10/31/2014 9:29:00 PM
Description: Shooting guard C.J. Miles scored 13 points in Friday's loss to Memphis.
Insight: He chipped in four assists, three rebounds, one steal, one block, and also had three turnovers. Miles will have some fantasy relevance, with the uncertainty on the Pacers' roster.
David West, F10/31/2014 4:15:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward David West (sprained right ankle) will not play Friday against Memphis.
Insight: He is expected to miss the first three games, and this will be Indiana's second game of the season. Luis Scola will continue to start, while Chris Copeland and Lavoy Allen will see minutes, during West's absence.
Roy Hibbert, C10/31/2014 12:08:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert put up exciting numbers for his fantasy owners in the opener - 22 points, eight rebounds, seven blocks.
Insight: Hibbert was 10-of-13 for 22 points, but it was against the Sixers, so his fantasy owners should temper their expectations. Let's see how he does against Marc Gasol Friday night.
Roy Hibbert, C10/29/2014 9:45:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert carried Indiana to an opening night victory over the 76ers.
Insight: Hibbert was 10-of-13 for 22 points, while adding eight rebounds and an impressive seven blocks. If Hibbert produces like this all season, fantasy owners will have hit the jackpot.
C.J. Watson, G10/27/2014 3:20:00 PM
Description: Indiana point guard C.J. Watson will not play for the next two weeks according to the team's site.
Insight: Watson will join George Hill on the sidelines. This can't be good for pacers fans or fantasy owners.
George Hill, G10/27/2014 3:18:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill is expected to miss three weeks due to a left knee contusion
Insight: This is going to hurt every Pacers player as their point guard won't be available. Neither will his backup C.J. Watson, so the offense will likely run by Donald Sloan.
Luis Scola, F10/27/2014 3:15:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward Luis Scola could be a double-double threat for the first week of the season as starter David West is expected to miss at least three games due to a sprained ankle.
Insight: It's only temporary, so don't overvalue his first week's production.
David West, F10/27/2014 3:13:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward David West (sprained right ankle) is expected to miss the first three games of the seasopn, according to the team.
Insight: West is an underrated fantasy option after a 14 ppg, 6.8 rpg, 2.8 apg 2013-14. Luis Scola figure to be reap the benefits in the first week of play.
Rodney Stuckey, G10/25/2014 4:14:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey said he has not done on-court work lately and is unsure if he will be ready to start the season according to Scott Agness of VigilantSports.com.
Insight: Stuckey has been out since Oct. 18 and the injury is taking longer to heal than the Pacers said they thought it would. Stuckey is going to be a major part of the offense without Paul George, but he is a better fantasy player in points leagues rather than roto because of his lack of 3-pointers.
George Hill, G10/25/2014 2:27:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill said he will not know if he will be ready for the season opener on Wednesday until a couple days ahead of time.
Insight: Someone should tell Hill it's already Saturday. Even with the minor injury, Hill is going to be a major part of the Pacers team and should be targeted earlier in drafts.
David West, F10/24/2014 1:43:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward David West is questionable for Wednesday's game against Philadelphia due to a sprained right ankle.
Insight: West is an underrated fantasy option heading into the season after a 14 ppg, 6.8 rpg, 2.8 apg 2013-14. Let's hope he gets and remains healthy which can be a question at 34-years-old.
Luis Scola, F10/23/2014 6:43:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward Luis Scola is a double-double threat when he plays.
Insight: Indiana has openings in the starting lineup with Lance Stephenson leaving via free agency and Paul George breaking his leg. Scola, however, does not play either position those two guys play. Scola could actually see fewer minutes since the Pacers will need more from Roy Hibbert and David West.
Paul George, SF10/23/2014 6:41:00 PM
Description: Pacers forward Paul George should not be selected in redraft formats.
Insight: Everyone knows by now George suffered a gruesome leg injury playing for Team USA on Aug. 1. He is not expected to play this season. For those of you in dynasty leagues, George should be targeted in the middle rounds.
Roy Hibbert, C10/23/2014 6:38:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert still has tremendous potential even at 27-years-old.
Insight: It is the old sports saying, players only have "potential" because they have yet to prove they are good. Hibbert is 7-foot-2, 290 pounds, yet only averaged 6.6 RPG and made just 43.9 percent of his shots. It is hard to trust him, but if he falls to a middle round, it is worth taking him on his potential.
David West, F10/23/2014 6:34:00 PM
Description: Pacers power forward David West will be heavily relied upon for scoring this season without Paul George.
Insight: That is music to most fantasy owners ears, but at 34-years-old, there are questions of whether West will be able to remain durable on a team that relies so much on him. He has been durable throughout his career and is capable of averaging close to 16 points and over seven rebounds per game. West is an underrated fantasy option heading into the season. Let's hope he remains healthy.
Solomon Hill, F10/23/2014 6:30:00 PM
Description: Pacers' Solomon Hill will likely come off the bench in a sixth-man type role for Indiana this season.
Insight: Hill has not looked as good as C.J. Miles or Rodney Stuckey. Both those players offer better offensive numbers and fantasy potential. Hill is being considered for a starting role because of his defense, so even if he starts, he wouldn't hold as much value as Miles or Stuckey.
C.J. Miles, G10/23/2014 6:27:00 PM
Description: Shooting guard C.J. Miles is expected to start the season at the small forward position.
Insight: Coach Frank Vogel is "leaning toward" starting Miles at SF and Rodney Stuckey at SG. That's the best case scenario for fantasy owners as Miles will hit his fair share of 3-pointers. We would like to see him in the starting lineup. David West and Roy Hibbert owners would like to see Miles in the lineup too because Miles' 3-point shooting will open up offensive opportunities for West and Hibbert.
Rodney Stuckey, G10/23/2014 6:22:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey is worth a look in fantasy leagues, but not in roto leagues.
Insight: Stuckey does not hit 3-pointers or get many steals, so at the guard position, he is basically useless in roto leagues. He will start for Indiana, though, so he could hold some late-round value in points leagues, where output matters more than individual categories.
George Hill, GHot10/23/2014 6:19:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill should offer solid numbers for your flex guard spot.
Insight: Hill has never shot below 44.2 percent from the floor in any season. He is also a 80 percent free throw shooter and 37. 1 percent 3-point shooter in his career. Hill averaged 14.2 PPG and 4.7 APG two seasons ago, and without Paul George this season, he has sleeper potential in fantasy drafts.
Evan Turner, G/F10/18/2014 7:13:00 PM
Description: Celtics' Evan Turner is a candidate to start at point guard on opening night.
Insight: Turner has gained the trust of coach Brad Stevens and with Rajon Rondo out a few weeks, Turner could start at the point. Rookie Marcus Smart is the long-term answer at point guard for Boston, but if Stevens elects to go with experience, Turner will be the guy.
Solomon Hill, F9/30/2014 9:20:00 PM
Description: Pacers' Solomon Hill joined George Hill, Rodney Stuckley, David West and Roy Hibbert on the floor for a portion of Tuesday's practice according to Scott Agness of VigilantSports.com.
Insight: The biggest reason for why Hill was out with the starters in practice Tuesday is probably because C.J. Miles was out with a calf injury. Hill does have sleeper potential as he shot 39 percent from 3-point land the last two years at Arizona, but he is still only fantasy relavant in very deep leagues.
Paul George, SF9/29/2014 10:01:00 PM
Description: Pacers forward Paul George said he is hoping to return for the playoffs as long as Indiana makes it according to NBA.com.
Insight: George fractured his leg while playing for Team USA on Aug. 1. He was walking around without a walking boot on Monday, which is encouraging, but it is still very unlikely he plays at all this year. Do not draft him in any fantasy leagues.
Paul George, SF8/1/2014 10:43:00 PM
Description: Pacers forward Paul George suffered a horrific leg injury Friday night during the Team USA Showcase game.
Insight: George landed awkwardly after a block attempt and his leg bent completely at the shin. It was similar to the injury suffered by Louisville player Kevin Ware in March 2013. George could miss the entire 2014-15 season after the gruesome injury.
Rodney Stuckey, G7/17/2014 2:12:00 PM
Description: Rodney Stuckey has landed with the Indiana Pacers on a one-year deal.
Insight: He'll replace Lance Stephenson, who signed with the Charlotte Hornets this week. Stuckey is 25 pounds lighter than Stephenson and nowhere close to the defender Stephenson is, but he can handle the ball and play both guard spots. Stuckey's minutes have been inconsistent the past two years with the Pistons and he's never been a strong fantasy option because he's a career .286 shooter on threes.
C.J. Miles, G7/2/2014 4:48:00 PM
Description: Shooting guard C.J. Miles has agreed to a four-year, $18 million contract with the Pacers, according to cbssports.com.
Insight: Miles averaged 19.3 minutes, 9.9 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.6 threes per game with the Cavaliers last season but missed the last seven weeks of the season due to an ankle injury. He could potentially start for Indiana if Lance Stephenson departs in free agency.
Roy Hibbert, C5/31/2014 5:19:00 PM
Description: Indiana center Roy Hibbert is open to being traded. SOURCE: Marc Stein, ESPN
Insight: Hibbert's head just wasn't in it during the second half of the season (8.9 ppg, 4.7 rpg in 29 appearances) and it could be time for a change of scenery. With Hibbert's future uncertain and Lance Stephenson slated to become a free agent, the Pacers' starting five could have a drastically different look in 2014-15.
Roy Hibbert, C5/29/2014 8:49:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert was given a $5,000 fine for flopping Wednesday against the Heat. SOURCE: Associated Press
Insight: After being held scoreless on Monday, Hibbert was much better in Game 5, contributing ten points, 13 rebounds and two assists in 38 minutes of action. Indiana's season will be on the line Friday in Game 6.
Lance Stephenson, G5/29/2014 8:41:00 PM
Description: Pacers guard Lance Stephenson has been fined $10,000 for flopping in Wednesday's win over Miami. SOURCE: Scott Agness, Pacers.com
Insight: It's his second violation of the playoffs. Stephenson (13.8 ppg this postseason) is well-known for his quirks but even for him his behavior in Game 5 was pretty bizarre. Stephenson's high jinks included wandering into Miami's huddle and blowing into LeBron's ear. We'll see what kind of antics Stephenson has in store for Game 6 on Friday night.
