News: Hibbert scored four points (1-7 FG, 2-2 FT) and grabbed seven rebounds in 17 minutes against Orlando on Wednesday night.
Impact: It was known beforehand that Hibbert would play half the game Wednesday, but outside of staying healthy, it was another disaster of a game for the big man. In April, he's averaging just 5.6 points and 2.4 rebounds per game and is shooting an abysmal 25 percent. He excelled during last year's postseason, but even this feels a bit too risky for daily contests as far as buy-low options go.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Turner scored 14 points (5-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT) grabbed eight rebounds and had six assists in 34 minutes against Orlando on Wednesday night.
Impact: With much of Indiana's lineup resting for either the second half or the entire game, Turner played a fairly significant role for the Pacers Wednesday night. That of course will not continue on in the playoffs, as Turner will be coming off the bench, playing roughly 15-20 minutes per game.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mahinmi (rest) will miss the Pacers' season finale against the Magic, the Indianapolis Star reports.
Impact: Mahinmi will take the night off on Wednesday to rest before the playoffs begin. There is no injury to Mahinmi to cause this decision. With Roy Hibbert likely to play just the first half and Mahinmi sitting, backup Lavoy Allen could see a good run of minutes on Wednesday.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: George (rest) will not play Wednesday against the Magic, the Pacers' official site reports.
Impact: George will get an extra day to rest before the playoffs. Evan Turner will likely start at small forward, with Chris Copeland also getting some extra minutes.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Watson (rest) will not play Wednesday against the Magic, the Pacers' official site reports.
Impact: Watson will get a day off to prepare for the playoffs, with the Pacers already having secured the No. 1 seed in the East. George Hill will play the first half, and Donald Sloan will get most of the minutes at point guard in the second half.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Stephenson (rest) will not play Wednesday against the Magic, the Pacers' official site reports.
Impact: Stephenson will sit out the team's regular season finale in preparation for the playoffs. Rasual Butler will likely get the start and most of the minutes at shooting guard.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: West (rest) will not play Wednesday against the Magic, the Pacers' official site reports.
Impact: West will receive an off day in preparation for the playoffs. Look for Luis Scola and Lavoy Allen to get most of the minutes at power forward.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hibbert will play the first half of Wednesday's regular season finale against the Magic, the Pacers' official site reports.
Impact: Hibbert may still be of use to fantasy owners in need of blocks Wednesday, but Ian Mahinmi will get more run at center and may be a decent option for those in desperate need of a fill in.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hill will play in Wednesday's regular season finale in Orlando, though he will likely only play in the first half, the Pacers' official site reports.
Impact: With the Pacers securing the one seed in the East, they will be able to take it easy and rest their regular players Wednesday as they choose. Expect Donald Sloan to run the point in the second half.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bynum will be brought back slowly, but the Pacers hope he will be available to help them in the playoffs, the Indianapolis Star reports. "Obviously we brought him in for one reason and that's the playoffs," team president Larry Bird stated.
Impact: Bynum has played just two games since being acquired by the Pacers, and has been on the inactive list since mid-March due to his ailing knees. The Pacers hope the swelling that flared up can be managed in time for the playoffs, but will continue to proceed cautiously, with the hopes of having the big man available for a deep playoff run. Bird added further comments on Bynum in his interview, stating that "People don't remember but two years ago, he's probably the best center in the league. So if we can get anything out of him, 15-18 minutes a game, he can play. We know he can play, it's just getting him out there." It's clear Bird intends to use his $1 million asset, but the exact timing of Bynum's return to action remains to be seen.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mahinmi had 11 points (4-4 FG, 3-4 FT) to go along with five rebounds, one assist and a block over 21 minutes off the bench.
Impact: Mahinmi actually outperformed Roy Hibbert on Sunday afternoon, as Hibbert failed to record a point and had just one more rebound than the Frenchman. Mahinmi won't be cutting into Hibbert's playing time anytime soon, but it's worth noting that he was a perfect 4-for-4 from the field, and has reached double-digit scoring in half of his April games. With the condition of Andrew Bynum (knees) uncertain heading into the playoffs, Mahinmi looks to be in line to shoulder the reserve big man minutes.
Sun. Apr 13, 2014 | STATS
News: Hibbert was awful again Sunday against the Thunder.
Impact: Hibbert was kept scoreless and finished 0 of 9 from the field. It's his second scoreless effort sandwiched around a five-point no-show against the world champion Heat. Hibbert has clearly lost his mojo.
Sun. Apr 13, 2014 | STATS
News: George had 20 points and 12 rebounds Sunday against the Thunder.
Impact: George wraps up his fantasy season in the regular-season finale at Orlando.
Sun. Apr 13, 2014 | STATS
News: Stephenson set a new franchise record with his fifth triple-double of the season Sunday against the Thunder.
Impact: Stephenson finished with 17 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds. Detlef Schrempf set the previous mark with four in 1992-93.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Stephenson recorded his fifth triple-double of the season Sunday by finishing with 17 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists and one block in 41 minutes of action.
Impact: The Pacers were able to get a much needed win against the Thunder on Sunday and Stephenson was a big part of that success. His production had slipped over the past few games, but it looks like he and the Pacers are back on track.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hibbert had an abysmal Sunday outing against the Thunder. He went scoreless (0-9 FG) but managed to record six rebounds, one steal and one block during his 27 minutes on the court.
Impact: Hibbert brought destruction to his owners' field-goal percentage during his poor performance Sunday. There's only one game left for the Pacers on Wednesday and Hibbert will try to bounce back. However, if your team is not in need of blocks, then it might not be a terrible idea to look for other options on the waiver wire, depending on the depth of league.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Watson had a great game off the bench Sunday in the 25 minutes that he played. He finished with 20 points (6-10 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-6 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal.
Impact: Watson's problems with his hamstring seem to be long behind him now. He provides a punch off the bench for the Pacers and can be used as a flier in deeper leagues for the final two games of the season.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | STATS
News: Hibbert was nearly invisible for Indiana on Friday night, with just five points and one rebound in nearly 34 minutes of playing time. Not surprisingly, the Pacers lost the game, falling to Miami 98-86.
Impact: In four games this season between the teams, Hibbert has averaged 14.0 points and just 3.0 rebounds per game. When Indiana and Miami met in the Eastern Conference finals last year, he recorded 22.1 points and 10.4 rebounds per game.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: George had 22 points (7-17 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 5-7 FT) with five rebounds and five assists in 40 minutes in the loss to the Heat on Friday.
Impact: George has continued to put up decent numbers despite his second half slump. Once again, he did not shoot well, but his overall numbers have been good enough for fantasy owners not to fret too much.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hibbert had a quiet game - five points (2-7 FG, 1-2 FT), one board, two blocks - in the loss to the Heat on Friday.
Impact: While the Pacers starters were rested Wednesday against the Bucks, they still looked out of sync in the loss to the Heat. In his last four games, Hibbert has only made 31.4 percent of his field goals and has not topped three rebounds.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hill (rest) doled out four assists, but did not take a shot in 33 minutes in the loss to the Heat on Friday.
Impact: Hill was almost invisible on the court in the loss. He, along with the rest of the Pacer starters, were rested Wednesday, but he did not find any shots to take. Look for him to be more aggressive Sunday against the Thunder.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Stephenson (rest) had 11 points (4-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with four rebounds and three assists in 35 minutes in the loss to the Heat on Friday.
Impact: Stephenson and the rest of the Pacer starters were rested Wednesday. He played his normal complement of minutes against Miami, but did not take on too much of the offense.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: West (rest) returned from a one-game absence and scored 18 points (7-13 FG, 4-4 FT) with eight boards in 26 minutes in the loss to the Heat on Friday. He fouled out.
Impact: West's minutes were limited because of foul trouble, but he was able to get his offense in. He has played at least 33 minutes in his previous three games and has scored accordingly.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hill (rest) will return to the starting lineup Friday, ESPN reports.
Impact: Hill was held out Wednesday to rest up for the playoff push that the Pacers hope to make. He'll be joined by the other regular starters that also sat out for rest in Wednesday's game against the Bucks.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Stephenson (rest) will return to the starting lineup Friday, ESPN reports.
Impact: Stephenson was held out Wednesday to rest up for the playoff push that the Pacers hope to make. He'll be joined by the other regular starters that also sat out for rest in Wednesday's game against the Bucks.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hibbert (rest) will return to the starting lineup Friday, ESPN reports.

Impact: George was held out Wednesday to rest up for the playoff push that the Pacers hope to make. He'll be joined by the other regular starters that also sat out for rest in Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

News: West (rest) will return to the starting lineup Friday, ESPN reports.
Impact: West was held out Wednesday to rest up for the playoff push that the Pacers hope to make. He'll be joined by the other regular starters that also sat out for rest in Wednesday's game against the Bucks.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Allen had eight points (3-9 FG, 2-4 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block over 28 minutes on Wednesday night.
Impact: Allen was accustomed to this type of playing time while he was with the Sixers, but this was the most minutes he's seen since coming over to Indiana via trade in February. The Pacers rested all of the regular starters on Wednesday, which gave Luis Scola the starting nod, and allowed Allen to be his primary backup off the bench. He actually led the Pacers' bench in playing time, but don't expect this trend to continue the rest of the way out, unless the Pacers choose to rest their starters once again.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Sloan had eight points (4-11 FG, 0-1 3 Pt, 0-2 FT) to go along with eight assists and four rebounds over 32 minutes Wednesday against the Bucks.
Impact: Sloan received the starting nod at point guard on Wednesday, as George Hill, along with the rest of the Pacers' starters, took a seat for a day of rest. This allowed Sloan to see 32 minutes of action, shattering his previous season-high of 21 minutes played. With C.J. Watson returning from a hamstring injury, there won't be many minutes remaining for Sloan over the Pacers' final three games, unless George Hill gets another full game to rest.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hill returned from a three-game absence to play 23 minutes Wednesday against the Bucks. He had two points (0-2 FG, 0-2 3 Pt, 2-2 FT) to go along with two rebounds, an assist and a steal.
Impact: Hill has been bothered by a sore back lately, but it's gone unnoticed for the most part, as he didn't have a big role on the team to start with. With the Pacers resting all five of their starters on Wednesday night however, Hill was able to take the court for a season-high 23 minutes. His playing time didn't translate to increased production though, so there's really not much value to find here over the team's final three games.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Copeland had 18 points (7-8 FG, 4-5 3 Pt) to go along with three assists, two rebounds and a block over 17 minutes in Wednesday's victory over the Bucks.
Impact: Copeland posted a season-best scoring effort Wednesday night, but the highlight of the evening was his game-winning basket with 1.2 seconds remaining. Despite all of the Pacers' starters taking a seat for a day of rest against the lowly Bucks, Copeland was unable to break his way into the starting lineup, although he was the teams' most effective contributor off the bench. The Pacers have just three remaining games in the regular season, and despite Wednesday's breakout performance, Copeland likely won't play a big role unless the Pacers decide to once again rest all of their starters. If there's anything major to gain from this performance, it's that the Pacers perhaps will have more confidence in Copeland's ability to come through beyond the arc when the playoffs arrive.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Turner played 41 starting minutes Wednesday, when he finished with 23 points (9-18 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), nine assists, and seven rebounds versus Milwaukee.
Impact: Turner's fantasy production Wednesday was inflated because the Pacers opted to rest their entire starting lineup. As such, Turner assumed a role similar to the one he enjoyed with the Sixers previously this season: an offensive catalyst for a team mostly deficient in the department. When handed the minutes, Turner is definitely capable of strong fantasy contributions across the board, but since arriving in Indiana, his reserve role is clearly not as conducive to fantasy success. With the Pacers' starters likely to return next game, Turner should come off the bench moving forward.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Scola tallied a season-high 24 points (11-17 FG, 2-2 FT) and nine rebounds in 31 minutes Wednesday against the Bucks.
Impact: Scola was bound to experience a boost in production with Indiana resting its starters Wednesday night; however, to his credit, Scola ended up going for a season-best 24 points. He also flirted with a double-double by claiming nine boards. Against an atrocious Bucks team, fantasy owners opting to plug Scola into their teams Wednesday certainly reaped the benefits of coach Frank Vogel's lineup decision. With that in mind, it's unlikely Vogel will sit his starters again, so Scola's fantasy stardom Wednesday could prove to be a one-time thing.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Watson (hamstring) played 17 minutes in his return to action Wednesday, scoring eight points (3-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt) along the way.
Impact: Watson re-entering the fold likely means more to the Pacers than it does for potential fantasy owners. The point guard adds stability off Indiana's bench, but doesn't really offer much to be a difference-maker in fantasy formats.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | STATS
News: The slumping Indiana Pacers will rest all five starters Wednesday night against Milwaukee, even as they chase the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.
Impact: Coach Frank Vogel told reporters at the Pacers' shootaround that none of his top five had worked out and they would all sit out the game. He says it's a chance for George, David West, Roy Hibbert, George Hill and Lance Stephenson to get some minor injuries healed, and for the bench players to get back on track by playing extended minutes.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mahinmi will get the start for the Pacers on Wednesday in Milwaukee, the team's official site reports.
Impact: With the Pacers electing to rest all five of their starters on Wednesday against the lowly Bucks, Mahinmi will be inserted into the starting lineup.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Scola will get the start at forward for the Pacers on Wednesday in Milwaukee, the team's official site reports.
Impact: With the Pacers electing to rest all five of their starters on Wednesday against the lowly Bucks, Scola will get the start at forward. Along with Rasaul Butler, Scola should see plenty of run at forward on Wednesday in Milwaukee.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Butler will get the start at forward for the Pacers on Wednesday in Milwaukee, the team's official site reports.
Impact: With the Pacers deciding to rest all five of their starters on Wednesday against the lowly Bucks, Butler will get the start. Along with Luis Scola, Butler should see plenty of run at forward for the Pacers on Wednesday.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Turner will get the start at shooting guard for the Pacers on Wednesday in Milwaukee, the Pacer's official site reports.
Impact: Turner will start as the Pacers decided to rest their five starters on Wednesday against the lowly Bucks. He could be a nice daily games play as he returns to the starting lineup. Turner averages 14.2 points, 5.1 points, and 3.1 assists per game, with most of those coming as a starter in Philadelphia, so he has the potential to have a solid performance on Wednesday against the Bucks.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Sloan will get the start at point guard for the Pacers on Wednesday in Milwaukee, the Pacer's official site reports.
Impact: With the Pacers resting their five starters against the lowly Bucks on Wednesday, Sloan will get the start at point guard. C.J. Watson will play limited minutes against the Bucks, so Sloan should see his fair share of playing time Wednesday.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Watson will suit up, but play limited minutes Wednesday against the Bucks, the Indianapolis Star reports.
Impact: The Pacers will be rest all five of their starters, so Watson will likely see a good chunk of playing time, but likely not enough to be a must start in most fantasy formats. Expect somewhere in the range of 15-20 minutes.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hill (rest) will sit out Wednesday's game in Milwaukee, the Pacers' official site reports.
Impact: Hill will get an off day to keep his legs fresh for the playoffs. Donald Sloan will get the start at point guard against the Bucks.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Stephenson (rest) will sit out Wednesday's game in Milwaukee, the Pacers' official site reports.
Impact: Stephenson will get an off day to rest up. Rasual Butler will get the start a shooting guard against the Bucks.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: George (rest) will sit out Wednesday's game in Milwaukee, the Pacers' official site reports.
Impact: George will get an off day to rest. Evan Turner will get the start at small forward. Keep an eye on George for the rest of the season, as he will likely get another game off at some point to rest up for the playoffs.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: West (rest) will sit out Wednesday's game in Milwaukee, the Pacers' official site reports.
Impact: West will get an off day Wednesday. Expect Luis Scola to start in his absence. Keep an eye on his status for the remainder of the season on a day-to-day basis, as he may get some more rest before the playoffs.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hibbert (rest) will sit out Wednesday's game in Milwaukee, the Pacers' official site reports.
Impact: Hibbert may sit out more than just this one game to finish the season. Keep an eye on his status on a day-to-day basis. Ian Mahinmi will likely get the start at center.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Watson (hamstring) practiced with the team on Tuesday, and is hoping to return for Wednesday's game against the Bucks, the Pacers' official site reports.
Impact: This doesn't come as a surprise, as Watson had been eyeing a return on Wednesday since last week. Consider him a game-time decision for now, but it appears he'll be ready to go.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hibbert and the rest of the Pacers' starters may get a game or two off during the remaining four games of the team's regular season schedule, the Pacers' official site reports.
Impact: This report was loose with its details, so we're not fully aware if the team's planned rest will merely mean time off from practice, like the starters received Tuesday, or if the team will actually give some of the players a full game off.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Stephenson and the rest of the Pacers' starters may get a game or two off during the remaining four games of the team's regular season schedule, the Pacers' official site reports.
Impact: This report was loose with its details, so we're not fully aware if the team's planned rest will merely mean time off from practice, like the starters received Tuesday, or if the team will actually give some of the players a full game off.

Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: George, along with teammate David West, have discussed the amount of rest they have been receiving recently with head coach Frank Vogel, the Pacers' official site reports.
Impact: As the Pacers' franchise player, George has taken it upon himself to team up with the Pacers' veteran leader, David West, to address a concern currently happening in the Pacers' locker room. The feedback seems to be well-received so far, as the Pacers' starters received the day off from practice on Tuesday. It looks as if the Pacers are starting to see the big picture, and may have shifted their original goal of earning the East's top seed to something more attainable, such as heading into the playoffs healthy and well-rested. It's tough to imagine the 23-year-old George on the bench when the game is on the line, but this report suggests that he may have his minutes monitored more closely for the remainder of the regular season.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: West, along with teammate Paul George, have discussed the amount of rest they have been receiving recently with head coach Frank Vogel, the Pacers' official site reports.
Impact: West has served as the Pacers' leader both on the court and in the locker room this season, so it's only sensible that he would be involved in making a reasonable player request. It seems as if the Pacers, who were originally dead set on earning the East's number one overall seed, are starting to shift their priorities, with a regained understanding of the importance of being fresh heading into the playoffs. West has been on the floor nearly 31 minutes per game this season, and although it's not what fantasy owners want to hear, the 33-year-old could be a candidate for routine days of rest during the final part of the regular season.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hill had 12 points (3-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-6 FT) to go along with seven rebounds and two steals over 37 minutes in Sunday's loss.
Impact: Hill and the Pacers have gone ice cold lately, and when the starting point guard has just seven assists in his past four games, it definitely can't be a good sign. Fantasy owners knew what they were getting into with Hill, as the 27-year-old has never described himself as a conventional point guard, and his 3.5 assists per game average confirms this. The one bright spot for Hill in Sunday's stat line was the seven rebounds he accumulated, which happened to tie Paul George for the team lead.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Stephenson had just three points (1-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go along with five rebounds and three assists over 30 minutes on Sunday.
Impact: Stephenson's mere three points is his second lowest total of the season, as he just couldn't seem to get his shot working on Sunday. Stephenson wasn't the only Pacer to struggle however, as the team put up just 23 points in the entire first half. With time running out heading into the playoffs, Stephenson and company will look to start turning things around Wednesday in Milwaukee.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | STATS
News: Bynum remains out indefinitely with a right knee injury.
Impact: It's possible that he won't return until the playoffs.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hibbert played just nine minutes in Sunday's contest, and shot 0-for-5 from the field with no points or rebounds. According to coach Frank Vogel, Hibbert was limited due to rest. Vogel went on to say, "He looks to me to be worn down. He's a 7-2 center who has played every game."
Impact: This appears that this will be just a one-time deal and owners shouldn't worry about this being an issue for the final games of the regular season.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Watson (hamstring) hopes to return to action Wednesday versus Milwaukee, the Pacers' official website reports.
Impact: Watson has missed almost a month after straining his right hamstring Mar. 14 in Philadelphia, but is edging closer to a return, which will likely come this week. With Watson healthy, Donald Sloan would figure to see less time off the bench, with Evan Turner and Lance Stephenson being featured less as ball handlers as well.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Sloan had nine points (3-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go along with three assists and a rebound over 13 minutes on Friday night in Toronto.
Impact: Sloan hasn't seen a lot of minutes lately, despite backup point guard C.J. Watson (hamstring) being out, but Friday's performance matched a season high in scoring. There's no need to rush to the waiver wire to get him, however, as the 26-year-old has yet to crack double-digit scoring on the year.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: West had 21 points (9-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT) to go along with seven rebounds, four assists and two steals in Friday's loss to the Raptors.
Impact: West finished right behind Paul George in scoring with 21 and now has 36 points in his last two games. The rebounding has also been solid of late, as the veteran has corralled seven or more boards in six of his last seven contests. West's consistent play will continue to be a key factor for the Pacers down the stretch.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: George scored a team-high 26 points (7-17 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 9-10 FT) with six rebounds and three assists in 40 minutes, as the Pacers lost in Toronto on Friday.
Impact: George has scored 53 points in his last two games, after failing to score 20 in three straight. He's still shooting inefficiently and hasn't topped 50 percent from the floor in any game since Mar. 14.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hill (back) will not play Friday, the Pacers report.
Impact: Hill has had little fantasy value or impact on the team as he has only played seven minutes in the past five games.
Thu. Apr 3, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Watson, who has made little progress with his right hamstring, rode an elliptical machine for 10 minutes after Thursday's practice, the Pacers' official site reports.
Impact: Watson has now been sidelined in 15 of the last 16 contests due to the ailment, which is threatening his status for the final six games of the regular season. The Pacers have stumbled to a 7-9 record during that span, meaning his presence would likely aid in stabilizing the backcourt rotation.
Thu. Apr 3, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mahinmi had 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-4 FT) to go along with five rebounds, three blocks, an assist and a steal over 19 minutes on Wednesday night.
Impact: Mahinmi tied his season-high in scoring with an efficient performance from the field, leading the Pacers' bench with 10 points. Mahinmi saw a few extra minutes Wednesday, and was able to step in and perform admirably when Roy Hibbert (neck) had to temporarily leave the game. Hibbert appears to be good to go moving forward though, so it still doesn't seem likely that Mahinmi will be headed for an expanded role.
Wed. Apr 2, 2014 | STATS
News: George had his highest-scoring game in more than two weeks on Wednesday, finishing with 27 points in the team's win over Detroit. He also added 13 rebounds and seven assists.
Impact: The All-Star had been averaging 16.1 points on 31.8 percent shooting over the team's last eight games, which Indiana was 2-6 in.
Wed. Apr 2, 2014 | RotoWire
