Updating a previous report, Aaron Brooks (knee) will play Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

He won't be on a minutes limit, but he won't play much with Jeff Teague and Monta Ellis healthy. Brooks can't be considered a viable fantasy target in any setting.

Aaron Brooks (sore right knee) is expected to make his regular-season debut Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

He got in a full practice on Monday and went through Tuesday morning's shootaround, so he should be available for limited minutes tonight. He's not a fantasy option anywhere, though.
Nov 1 - 5:47 PM

Aaron Brooks (sore right knee) is questionable for Tuesday's game.

Brooks was a full participant in Monday's practice, so his status will hinge on how his knee reacts. The Pacers could certainly use him with Rodney Stuckey (knee) already ruled out, but his availability has no real fantasy impact.

Aaron Brooks returned to full practice on Monday.

It sounds like he will be available for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers, but he's not a lock to be in the rotation. Leave him on the wire.

Aaron Brooks (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday.

Aaron Brooks (knee) will be available to play Wednesday vs. the Mavericks.

Nate McMillan said he will only play Brooks in limited stints, which will likely be a trend that holds true throughout that year assuming the guys in front of him are healthy. Brooks isn't a fantasy option in any setting.
Oct 25 - 2:49 PM

Aaron Brooks (knee) has been practicing in full over the past two days, but he remains "a ways away" from where he'd like to be.

Brooks is going to be used sparingly behind Jeff Teague and Monta Ellis this season, so there's no reason to pay him any mind in any scenario.
Oct 24 - 1:58 PM

Aaron Brooks (knee) did not practice on Friday and could miss the opener.

He's been out since Oct. 14 due to this knee issue. Brooks should be getting the backup minutes behind Jeff Teague, but he's not going to play next to Teague. If he's out, Joe Young would get in the rotation.

Aaron Brooks (knee) will remain sidelined for Wednesday's preseason game against the Bucks.

He was listed as doubtful heading into this one, so it's not surprising at all to see him opt-out of Wednesday's meaningless game. Brooks isn't going to have any fantasy value this season while the Pacers are at full strength.

Brooks had been battling a hip injury throughout the preseason, but his knee injury is relatively new. While Brooks may be ready for the regular season opener, he doesn't have any fantasy value at this point.
