Indiana Pacers forward/center Lavoy Allen (knee) will not play against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday. What It Means: That means it should be Kevin Seraphin starting again. Allen should be considered as questionable for Thursday night. Our models project Seraphin for 10.3 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.0 assists, and 21.9 FanDuel points on 25.4 minutes tonight.

Indiana Pacers forward/center Lavoy Allen (knee) is doubtful to play against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday. What It Means: Assuming Allen is ruled out after warmups, Kevin Seraphin becomes an attractive DFS play as the probable starter. He turned in 12 points, 4 rebounds and 1 block in 27.3 minutes on Monday in his first start of the year. Seraphin costs the minimum $3,500 price tag on FanDuel Wednesday night, and he is numberFire's top-rated value play for a deep 14-game slate. Our models project him for 10.3 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.0 blocks in 25.4...

Lavoy Allen (knee) ruled out Thursday for Pacers

Indiana Pacers forward/center Lavoy Allen (knee) will not play against the Washington Wizards on Thursday. What It Means: Kevin Seraphin will draw a third straight start against his former squad. Expect Allen to be back after the break, but he won't be much of a factor with Thaddeus Young (wrist) also set to return. Seraphin, C.J. Miles and Glenn Robinson III all make for middling fantasy options in the NBA's Thursday night two-pack of games before the All-Star break. Seraphin is averaging 8.0 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists over 26.9 minutes in his two starts this...

Pacers won't have Thaddeus Young (left wrist) in matchup with Washington

Indiana Pacers forward Thaddeus Young (left wrist) will not play on Thursday versus the Washington Wizards. What It Means: This will be seven straight missed games for Young, but hopefully he will be ready to return after the All-Star break. Lavoy Allen (knee) is questionable, so Kevin Seraphin could earn a third straight start. Seraphin is averaging 8.0 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists over 26.9 minutes in his two starts this season. His -0.2 nERD is eighth on the Pacers. Source: Rotoworld.com

Pacers likely without Lavoy Allen (knee) again on Wednesday night

Indiana Pacers forward/center Lavoy Allen (knee) is doubtful to play against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday. What It Means: Assuming Allen is ruled out after warmups, Kevin Seraphin becomes an attractive DFS play as the probable starter. He turned in 12 points, 4 rebounds and 1 block in 27.3 minutes on Monday in his first start of the year.

Kevin Seraphin making first start of season for Pacers

Indiana Pacers forward/center Kevin Seraphin will move into the starting lineup for Monday's game against the San Antonio Spurs, with both Thaddeus Young (wrist) and Lavoy Allen (knee) unavailable. What It Means: The Pacers don't have a lot to work with in the frontcourt with Young and Allen both out, so Seraphin gets the nod. It will be his first start since the 2013-14 season when he was with the Washington Wizards. Glenn Robinson will also replace C.J. Miles in the starting lineup. numberFire's models love Seraphin as a value play on DFS, and we project him for 9.8 points,...

Lavoy Allen (knee) not playing for Pacers against San Antonio

Indiana Pacers forward/center Lavoy Allen (sore right knee) will not suit up for Monday's game against the San Antonio Spurs. What It Means: Thaddeus Young (wrist) is also out, meaning Kevin Seraphin may be called upon to join the starters. Expect Paul George to play more at the four, but Al Jefferson could wind up being a decent value play with some extra opportunity on Monday night. Our models project Jefferson for 11.1 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 18.9 minutes versus the Spurs. Source: Rotoworld.com

Pacers' Thaddeus Young (left wrist) will not play Monday versus the Spurs

Indiana Pacers forward Thaddeus Young (sprained left wrist) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the San Antonio Spurs. What It Means: Young will now have missed six consecutive games with the wrist injury and is likely to sit out the rest of the week with the All-Star break looming. Lavoy Allen ahs played well in his place and will continue to do so at least on Monday night. Our models project Allen for 5.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 1.4 assists in 22.2 minutes on Monday night.

Pacers rule out Thaddeus Young for Saturday

Indiana Pacers forward Thaddeus Young (wrist) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. What It Means: Young's sprained wrist has cost him five straight games now and with Indiana only having three more games after Saturday before the All Star Break, Young has a chance to be shut down until after the break. Kevin Seraphin had the hot hand on Friday, but Lavoy Allen and C.J. Miles are both candidates to see extended minutes with Young out. The problem is figuring out which one Nate McMillan will lean on. Our models project Seraphin as the best value...

Pacers' Thaddeus Young expected to miss both Friday, Saturday

Indiana Pacers forward Thaddeus Young (wrist) is not expected to play Friday against the Washington Wizards or Saturday against the Milwaukee Bucks, according to head coach Nate McMillan. What It Means: Lavoy Allen has picked up three straight starts with Young out, but he's not much more than a short-term streamer. C.J. Miles turned in 23 points on Wednesday and makes for the more attractive add. Miles is averaging a season-high 26.5 minutes per game across five February contests, and he's responded with 13.8 points, 3.2 3-pointers and 3.6 rebounds -- all of which are also the...

Thaddeus Young is out again on Wednesday in Indiana

Indiana Pacers forward Thaddeus Young (sprained left wrist) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. What It Means: Young will miss his third straight game on Wednesday, so Lavoy Allen should see another start. Allen put up a double-double in his first start for Young, but had just a marginal game on Monday against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Still, he is a viable value play in NBA DFS against Cleveland. Our models expect Allen to post 6.0 points, 7.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 0.8 blocks over 29.4 minutes on Wednesday against the Cavs....
