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.

Aaron Brooks (sore right knee) is doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

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.

Aaron Brooks (sore right knee) will not play on Friday vs. the Magic.

He was bothered by a hip injury earlier in preseason, so this is a new concern. Brooks hasn't played well at all with his new team, so he's in danger of losing some minutes to Joe Young. Brooks is not worth targeting in most fantasy leagues.
Oct 14 - 11:27 AM

Aaron Brooks (hip) contributed six points, three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 22 minutes off Indy's bench on Wednesday.

The Pacers went on a 33-10 run in the second quarter to blow the game open, and Brooks won't be playing 20+ minutes this year while Jeff Teague is healthy. The career 41.3 percent shooter is a combined 2-of-14 from the field through two preseason games, without a single made 3-pointer.
Oct 12 - 10:18 PM

Aaron Brooks (hip) will be available on Saturday vs. the Bulls.

Revenge game? Probably not. Brooks isn't 100 percent and coach Nate McMillan said that his minutes are "undetermined." Brooks will not be a fantasy option while Jeff Teague is healthy.
Oct 8 - 1:15 PM

Aaron Brooks (hip) is probable to play against the Bulls on Saturday.

He did not play on Thursday due to a minor hip ailment. Brooks will compete for the backup point guard minutes.
Oct 7 - 5:33 PM

Aaron Brooks (hip) won't play against the Bulls on Thursday.

Brooks is still dealing with a hip injury and head coach Nate McMillan said he'll need a few more days. Brooks doesn't have much fantasy value when healthy, and can be left undrafted in standard fantasy leagues. Jeremy Evans (shoulder) will also miss Thursday's game.
Oct 6 - 12:09 PM

Aaron Brooks (hip) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.

Brooks is dealing with a very minor injury, but Indiana doesn't want to push the 31 year old for a meaningless game. The Pacers would need to suffer some devastating injuries for Brooks to establish himself as a worthwhile asset in most leagues.
Oct 4 - 7:05 PM

Aaron Brooks (hip) and Rakeem Christmas (knee) are both questionable for Tuesday's preseason game against the Pelicans.

Both players look to be game-time decisions as Brooks is dealing with a minor hip issue and Christmas is nursing a minor knee problem. Brooks is much more likely to be in the Pacers rotation than Christmas, but neither will have much fantasy value in 2016-17.
Oct 4 - 10:36 AM

Aaron Brooks (hip) did not practice on Monday.

It doesn't sound serious, but he could miss Tuesday against the Pelicans. Brooks will be fighting for a rotation spot in the preseason.
Oct 3 - 3:15 PM

Pacers sign G Aaron Brooks.

As expected, the Pacers have officially signed Brooks to a one-year, $2.5 million deal. Brooks will have to battle Joe Young for backup point guard minutes, so his fantasy value is extremely limited as long as Young and starter Jeff Teague are healthy.
Jul 21 - 10:42 AM

Aaron Brooks has agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million deal with the Pacers.

The Pacers starters look a lot different this year, but they do need some depth. Brooks should battle Joe Young for the backup point guard minutes, but they both won't have fantasy value.
Jul 18 - 2:56 PM

Free agent Aaron Brooks is in "advanced discussions" with the Pacers, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

The deal is reportedly for one year and it's likely to be at or near the minimum, giving the Pacers a likely replacement for Ty Lawson. Brooks' arrival would be bad news for Joe Young's role next season, but neither guy is appealing in fantasy leagues while Jeff Teague is soaking up minutes at PG.
Jul 10 - 9:07 PM

The Bulls are not expected to re-sign Aaron Brooks.

While the Bulls could use some help at point guard, they are expected to move on from the 31-year-old as they attempt to get younger through the draft. Brooks will likely land on an NBA roster as a backup point guard, but he won't be worth drafting in standard fantasy leagues at this point in his career.
