Indiana Pacers forward Thaddeus Young (left wrist) and forward/center Lavoy Allen (right knee) are probable to play against the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday. What It Means: Young missed the Pacers' last eight games before the break, but he's not expected to have any sort of minutes limit. He's averaging 11.5 points, 6.1 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.8 steals in 31.1 minutes per game this season. The return of both Young and Allen means Kevin Seraphin will lose his fantasy relevance. Young is projected for 11.4 points, 6.1 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.2 3-pointers in...

Indiana Pacers forward Thaddeus Young (left wrist) and forward/center Lavoy Allen (right knee) are probable to play against the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday.

Thaddeus Young’s absence is underscoring the Pacers’ real problem

Thaddeus Young’s absence is underscoring the Pacers’ real problem

Hint: It isn’t Paul George. Thaddeus Young’s injured wrist matters. It matters a lot. Consider, for instance, that the starting lineup that fueled Indiana’s seven-game win streak - Jeff Teague, C.J. Miles, Paul George, Young, and Myles Turner - has outscored opponents by 10.6 points per 100 possessions in 193 total minutes this season, a mark that ranks 8th in the league among 44 lineups that have played at least 190 minutes. By comparison, their lineup with Glenn Robinson III replacing Miles and Kevin Seraphin in place of Young is minus-3.9 points per 100 possessions in 61...

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

Thaddeus Young (wrist) will miss seventh straight Wednesday for Pacers

Indiana Pacers forward Thaddeus Young (left wrist) will not play Wednesday versus the Cleveland Cavaliers. What It Means: Young has missed the past six games, and he may not see the floor again until after the All-Star break. Kevin Seraphin could draw another start if Lavoy Allen (knee) is also ruled out. He turned in 12 points, 4 rebounds and 1 block in 27.3 minutes on Monday night. Allen is averaging 8.0 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.6 blocks in 25.5 minutes across five starts this season, so he would be a middling fantasy option if...

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,...

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....

Pacers rule out Thaddeus Young (wrist) against Oklahoma City

Indiana Pacers forward Thaddeus Young (wrist) will not play on Monday versus the Oklahoma City Thunder. What It Means: Young will miss his second straight game due to a "lot of swelling," and he's unlikely to make it for Wednesday's matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Lavoy Allen earned his first of the year on Saturday, and he finished 18 points, 11 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals and 1 block in 32 minutes. He's worth a look if you need a big. Myles Turner (illness) is also questionable. The Pacers are currently tied for 14th in numberFire's NBA Team Power Rankings. Young is...

Pacers Injury Update: Thaddeus Young day-to-day with sprained wrist

The Pacers are awaiting further evaluation of Thad Young to determine status for Saturday night. Thaddeus Young had another solid game cut short when he sprained his left wrist in the second half of the Pacers win over the Nets on Friday night. Obviously, the injury could be worse and the fact x-rays ruled out a broken wrist was good news, as reported by Nate Taylor. But considering Young is a lefty, his day-to-day status will be put to the test with the Pacers playing on a back-to-back against the Pistons in Indy on Saturday night. Hopefully, MRI results are positive, as well even if Young...
