Pacers' Daniel Theis: Out Friday
Theis (knee) is out for Friday's game against the Bucks.
Theis is closing in on a season debut, but it won't come Friday. His next chance to suit up arrives Sunday against the Grizzlies. It's possible he's not an every-game player once available, though coach Rick Carlisle is struggling to find reliable backup center minutes.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Aaron Nesmith: Nabs questionable tag Friday
Nesmith holds a questionable designation for Friday's game versus the Bucks due to right wrist soreness.
Nesmith was deemed questionable with the same issue ahead of Wednesday's affair versus the Magic before being given the green light, so he could be more on the probable side of questionable leading up to Friday. Either way, it will be worth monitoring the wing's status ahead of the 7 PM ET opening tip.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Myles Turner: Questionable Friday
Turner is questionable for Friday's game against Milwaukee due to a right ankle sprain.
Turner has appeared in the Pacers' last six matchups and has averaged 19.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 3.0 blocks in 30.0 minutes per game during that time. If he's unavailable against the Bucks, Jalen Smith, Isaiah Jackson and Terry Taylor would be candidates to see increased minutes.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Andrew Nembhard: Listed as questionable
Nembhard (illness) is questionable for Friday's game against the Bucks.
Nembhard has missed the last two games due to an illness, and it's not yet clear whether he'll be able to return Friday. If he's sidelined once again, Chris Duarte and T.J. McConnell should continue to see increased run for Indiana.... See More ... See Less
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' Buddy Hield: Posts 21 points, four steals
Hield closed Wednesday's 126-120 loss to the Magic with 21 points (7-13 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, five assists and four steals in 39 minutes.
Hield was in the zone over the first two quarters, knocking down six of seven field goal attempts, including all five shots from three, for 17 points. Things didn't go so well in the second half, however, as the shooting guard went just 1-of-6 from the field for another four points as the Pacers fell to Orlando on the road. Despite the rough second half, he still shot 53.8 percent from the field in the contest and connected on six three-pointers, which tied Garry Harris for a game high. Hield has now scored at least 20 points in two of his last three contests and has recorded four steals in two straight.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Myles Turner: Grabs game-high 13 boards
Turner racked up 22 points (7-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 13 rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 126-120 loss to the Magic.
Turner had a first half to forget, going 2-of-9 from the field for eight points while collecting just three rebounds. However, the Pacers' big man came out strong after the break, knocking down four of five shot attempts for 10 points in the third quarter to go along with eight rebounds -- three of which came on the offensive end. He finished with a game-high 13 boards on the night to notch his third double-double this month and knocked down three triples for the second time in his last three games.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Game-high 26 points off bench
Mathurin recorded 26 points (7-18 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 10-12 FT), three rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal over 33 minutes during Wednesday's 126-120 loss to the Magic.
Mathurin had a solid first half with 14 points on 4-of-7 shooting from the field to go along with four assists before going just 3-of-11 over the final two quarters as the Pacers fell to the Magic. The shooting guard also sank 10 of his 12 free-throw attempts to finish with a game-high 26 points, while his four assists were the most he's recorded in a contest since Nov. 7. Mathurin has now scored at least 20 points in three straight, shooting 44.2 percent from the field over that stretch.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Aaron Nesmith: Good to go Wednesday
Nesmith (wrist) is available and will start Wednesday's game against the Magic.
Nesmith was considered questionable for Wednesday's contest, the second half of a back-to-back set, due to a sore right wrist, but he's ultimately been cleared for action. Over his past six appearances, the third-year forward has averaged 7.3 points and 3.5 rebounds in 24.8 minutes but is shooting just 25.5 percent from the field during that stretch.... See More ...

Pacers' Andrew Nembhard: Out Wednesday
Nembhard (illness) is out for Wednesday's matchup at Orlando.
The rookie will miss a second straight game due to an illness. In his absence, Chris Duarte is likely to draw another start, while T.J. McConnell should handle the most significant share of playmaking duties.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Daniel Theis: Still out Wednesday
Theis (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against Orlando.
Although coach Rick Carlisle said Monday that Theis would be available "soon," the 30-year-old will remain sidelined for the second half of a back-to-back set Wednesday. While he's been progressing well in practice recently, he's unlikely to have a consistent spot in the frontcourt rotation once he's deemed healthy.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Aaron Nesmith: Considered questionable Wednesday
Nesmith is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Magic due to a sore right wrist.
Nesmith has appeared in the last six games but is dealing with a wrist issue ahead of the second half of a back-to-back set. If he's unavailable against the Magic, Oshae Brissett and Jalen Smith are candidates to see increased playing time.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Andrew Nembhard: Questionable Wednesday
Nembhard (illness) is questionable for Wednesday's game against Orlando.
Nembhard sat out Tuesday's game against the Bulls due to a non-COVID illness, but he'll be in the mix to return to action for the second half of the back-to-back set. Over his last six appearances, he's averaged 7.8 points, 6.3 assists and 2.7 rebounds in 27.3 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Buddy Hield: Well-rounded contributor in win
Hield posted 19 points (5-14 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five rebounds, four assists, four steals and three blocks across 39 minutes during Tuesday's 116-110 win over the Bulls.
Held wasn't particularly efficient from the floor during Tuesday's victory, but he had plenty of shot volume and scored at least 19 points for a second consecutive game. The 30-year-old also contributed in other areas, and his four steals and three blocks both marked his highest totals of the season. He's scored in double figures in all but one of his appearances in which he's played at least 30 minutes, averaging 19.6 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.2 steals in 34.5 minutes per game over 36 such outings....
