Top Chris Duarte News

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Records career-high six steals

    Duarte ended Wednesday's 126-120 loss to Orlando with 16 points (4-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-8 FT), two rebounds, five assists and six steals in 39 minutes.

    Duarte has started the past two games in the absence of Tyrese Haliburton (knee, elbow) and Andrew Nembhard (illness). During Tuesday's win over Chicago, Duarte tied his career-high nine rebounds, and he followed that up one day later by setting a new career mark with six steals. The second-year wing's poor efficiency -- 34.0 percent from the field and 29.7 percent from three -- is becoming a serious concern regarding his career trajectory, but it's encouraging that he's finding other ways to contribute when called upon.

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Season high in rebounding in start

    Duarte accumulated 11 points (2-11 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and one steal in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 116-110 victory over Chicago.

    Duarte got his first start since Jan. 13, and he led the Pacers with a season-high rebound mark while finishing one board shy of a double-double. Duarte has tallied at least 10 points and five rebounds on two occasions this season.

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Starting against Chicago

    Duarte is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Bulls, Tony East of SI.com reports.

    Duarte will start for the first time since Jan. 13, when he posted seven points and two rebounds across 26 minutes in a loss to the Hawks. The former Oregon standout has played off the bench most of the season, and he's averaging 9.2 points per game across six starts in the current campaign. He will start in place of Andrew Nembhard (illness).

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Pops for 18 points off bench

    Duarte finished with 18 points (5-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 7-8 FT), two steals, one rebound and one assist in 17 minutes in Friday's 134-111 loss to the Nuggets.

    Duarte came through with his second big scoring game off the bench in less than a week, but his downward-trending playing time makes it difficult to trust him to turn in these kinds of performances moving forward. The eight trips to the free-throw line he made Friday likely aren't replicable for a lower-usage player like Duarte, who is averaging just 1.7 free-throw attempts per game for the season. And when Duarte isn't scoring, he isn't bringing much to the table on the defensive end; prior to Friday, he hadn't recorded a steal in his last 12 games, and he's averaging only 2.1 rebounds and 0.2 blocks per game in January.

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Goes for team-high 25 points

    Duarte closed Saturday's 130-112 loss to the Grizzlies with 25 points (7-15 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 7-7 FT), three rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes.

    Duarte has hit double figures in scoring in just four of his 23 appearances this season, but he's now gone for 25 or more points in two of those contests. Despite briefly exiting from Saturday's contest with a hand injury, Duarte proceeded to return to the game and finished with an excellent line while playing his most minutes since Oct. 31. Duarte's hot shooting likely played a factor in him garnering extended run, and while he should benefit from a slight uptick in playing time while Tyrese Haliburton (knee) is out, the second-year wing may see his minutes fall closer to the 20-to-25 range in most games moving forward.

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Slides back to bench

    Duarte will return to the second unit for Saturday's matchup with the Grizzlies, Tony East of SI.com reports.

    Duarte saw a spot start last time out with Aaron Nesmith (illness) absent, but he will return to the bench with Nesmith healthy Saturday. Duarte has failed to earn fantasy relevance since returning from injury, averaging just 4.2 points and 2.1 rebounds in 13 appearances.

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Lands on injury report Tuesday

    Duarte is questionable for Tuesday's matchup against Atlanta due to left ankle soreness.

    Duarte was a late addition to the injury report Tuesday morning, which is always a concerning development. The extent of the issue remains unclear, but if he doesn't suit up, Bennedict Mathurin and T.J. McConnell would be candidates for increased roles off the bench.

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Sinks four threes off bench

    Duarte logged 14 points (5-10 FG, 4-5 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 117-112 win over the Celtics.

    In just his second game back from a lengthy absence due to an ankle injury, Duarte found his three-point stroke in a big way. The Pacers appear to be easing him back into action, but with rookie Andrew Nembhard struggling to make an impact as the starting shooting guard, it may not be long before Duarte is back in the starting five.

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Middling numbers in return

    Duarte (ankle) finished with six points (2-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-5 FT) and two rebounds across 15 minutes in Sunday's 109-106 loss to the Knicks.

    Though he was on a playing-time restriction Sunday while he made his first appearance for Indiana in more than a month and a half due to a left ankle sprain, Duarte may not see his minutes pick up dramatically while Indiana has all of its key rotation players available. Prior to getting hurt, Duarte averaged 19.7 minutes per game over his first nine appearances of the 2022-23 campaign. A 2021-22 NBA All-Rookie Second Team selection a year ago, Duarte has seen his playing time and output impacted by the arrivals of Bennedict Mathurin and Andrew Nembhard via the draft and Aaron Nesmith via trade over this past summer.

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Inefficient in G League win

    Duarte (ankle) totaled 17 points (4-15 FG, 2-11 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 34 minutes during Friday's 122-118 win over Santa Cruz.

    Duarte, who's rehabbing from an ankle injury, made his second rehab appearance in the G League on Friday. While he finished with solid production, the 25-year-old struggled mightily with his shot. He's listed as questionable for the Pacers' matchup against the Knicks on Sunday, so it appears his stint in the G League has come to an end.

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Returning on minutes restriction

    Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle said Duarte (ankle) will play in Sunday's game against the Knicks.

    Though he'll be cleared for his first NBA action since Nov. 4, Duarte may have a smaller minutes load than usual, according to Tony East of WTHR Channel 13 Indianapolis. Prior to suffering his left ankle sprain, Duarte had averaged 8.9 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.4 three-pointers and 1.0 assists in 19.7 minutes per contest over nine appearances. Duarte most recently made two appearances with the G League's Fort Wayne Mad Ants to get ramped up, so he won't be coming into Sunday's contest completely cold.
