Indiana Pacers Player News: All Positions

News: McDermott (toe) has healed from his right toe soreness, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.
Impact: McDermott missed the Pacers' final three games leading up to the suspension of the season. From February onward, he's averaged 10.1 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 16.6 minutes.
News: Oladipo suggested in a recent interview with Michael Lee of The Athletic that he was only at "80 percent" after returning from a ruptured quadriceps tendon in his right knee in late January.
Impact: The injury ended Oladipo's 2018-19 season last January and sidelined him for a full year before he made his 2019-20 debut in a Jan. 29 win over the Bulls. He clearly struggled initially upon returning, shooting 33.3 percent from the floor through his first eight games. However, Oladipo began to turn things around after that, averaging 18.6 points on 47.1 percent shooting during his final five contests before the NBA suspended its season. Oladipo is likely even closer to 100 percent thanks to the league's lengthy hiatus, so he could be primed for a big finish when the season resumes.
News: Lamb (knee) has resumed walking, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Lamb underwent surgery seven weeks ago to address a torn ACL and meniscus. It's still the early stages of his rehab, and he won't be able to return until next season, but it's encouraging that he's been able to resume walking.
News: Brogdon (quadriceps) revealed in a video Saturday that he's "100 percent" healthy.
Impact: In early March, Brogdon was deemed week-to-week with a torn quad, so this timeline matches up. He notes that he's been doing rehab, riding his exercise bike and running hills in his backyard. If the season starts back up, he'll be able to take the court.
News: Lamb (knee) underwent a successful surgery Wednesday.
Impact: A timeline has yet to emerge regarding Lamb's recovery from a torn ACL and meniscus, and he's been labeled out "indefinitely." Presumably, the hope is that he'll be able to return during the second half of next season.
News: Warren had 22 points (9-18 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and five rebounds in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 114-111 loss to the Celtics.
Impact: Warren was solid from a scoring perspective and provided some help on the glass. However, he didn't contribute anything in terms of assists, steals or blocks and committed three turnovers. Warren continues to be a consistent source of points, but his production in most of the other counting stat categories usually leaves plenty to be desired.
News: Turner totaled 16 points (7-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, four blocks, one assist and one steal in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 114-111 loss to the Celtics.
Impact: Turner posted an impressive stat line, providing efficient offensive production and dominant defense. He has reached double figures in scoring in six of the last seven games, and he has accumulated 40 blocks across the past 13 matchups (3.3 per night).
News: Sabonis went off for 28 points (13-23 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, eight assists and one steal in 41 minutes during Tuesday's 114-111 loss to the Celtics.
Impact: Sabonis helped lead an impressive comeback attempt that fell just short, and he came awfully close to logging another triple-double. He already has more double-doubles (50) and triple-doubles (four) in this season alone than he did through his first three campaigns combined (47 double-doubles, zero triple-doubles).
News: Oladipo (knee) offered 27 points (9-16 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 114-111 loss to the Celtics.
Impact: Oladipo (knee) had been listed as questionable but appeared in his third straight game. This was by far his best performance thus far this season, as he finished with season highs in scoring and threes while matching his season high in minutes. He has made at least 50 percent of his shot attempts in four of his last seven showings, this after failing to do so once through his first six contests.
News: Oladipo (knee) will play Tuesday against Boston.
Impact: After being listed as questionable, Oladipo will take the floor for a third straight game as he continues to work his way back to full strength. In his last game -- a win over Dallas on Sunday -- Oladipo went for 16 points, four rebounds and seven assists.
News: Lamb (knee) is scheduled to undergo surgery Wednesday to repair his torn ACL and meniscus, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.
Impact: A timeline for Lamb's recovery should emerge shortly after the procedure is completed, but the 27-year-old's rehab seems likely to extend into the 2020-21 season. During his first season in Indiana, Lamb appeared in 46 games and averaged 12.5 points, 4.3 boards, 2.1 assists, 1.2 three-pointers and 1.2 steals in 28.1 minutes.
News: McDermott (toe) remains out for Tuesday's game against the Celtics, J. Michael of the Indy Star reports.
Impact: McDermott was able to go through shootaround, but the team will play it safe and hold him out of a third consecutive game. Following Tuesday's game, the Pacers have three days off before playing in Philadelphia on Saturday.
News: Oladipo (knee) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against Boston.
Impact: Whether he's on the injury report or not, Oladipo will essentially be questionable on a game-to-game basis until he proves to be fully past the injury that sidelined him for roughly a full calendar year. He's played in each of the last two games, though Oladipo's minutes continue to be capped in the range of 26 to 29 on most nights. Oladipo sat out the Pacers' first two games last week before playing both Friday at Chicago and Sunday at Dallas. He finished the latter contest with 16 points, four rebounds and seven assists in 27 minutes.
News: McDermott (toe) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game versus Boston.
Impact: If he does sit, it will be the third straight absence for McDermott, who is dealing with soreness in his right big toe.
News: McConnell finished with 12 points (6-10 FG), five assists and one rebound across 15 minutes during Sunday's win over the Mavericks.
Impact: McConnell reached double digits for the second time in three games while providing his usual steady hand running point for the second unit. Although he's one of the better bench players in the league, McConnell's contributions of 6.6 points, 5.0 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 18.9 minutes per game aren't enough to warrant him a roster spot in most formats.
News: Oladipo supplied 16 points (6-18 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven assists, four rebounds and a block in 27 minutes during Sunday's win over the Mavericks.
Impact: While Oladipo's 33.3 percent mark from the field was disappointing, he was able to manage a season-high seven assists and finished with a plus-8 net rating in the win. While the 27-year-old, who recently returned from a nearly year-long absence due to a knee injury, continues to show his rust, he's reached double figures in each of his past four appearances and is averaging 16.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.5 steals in 27.0 minutes per game over that span.
News: Turner recorded 16 points (6-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 13 rebounds, three blocks and two steals in 33 minutes during Sunday's win over Dallas.
Impact: The 23-year-old pieced together a solid game, providing his usual excellent defensive effort while notching his third double-double in the past six games. Although Turner's taken a back seat to Domanatas Sabonis on the offensive end in the Pacers' frontcourt, he remains a valuable all-around fantasy asset. On the whole, Turner's posting 11.8 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.1 blocks, 1.4 threes and 1.1 assists in 29.5 minutes per contest.
News: Sabonis tallied 20 points (8-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 17 rebounds, six assists and a steal in 41 minutes during Sunday's win over the Mavericks.
Impact: Sabonis, whose 17 boards marked his best night on the glass since Dec. 23, led the Pacers in both points and rebounds during Sunday's close win. Moreover, he notched his 50th double-double of the season, continuing his excellent season. Through 61 games, the fourth-year center is averaging 18.3 points, 12.5 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 34.7 minutes per game, all of which are career bests.
