Pacers' head coach Nate McMillan said that Aaron Brooks will draw the start at point guard if Jeff Teague (ankle) can't play Tuesday vs. the Pistons.
Teague is headed for a game-time call, but it's worth noting that McMillan said he's hopeful that Teague can get out there. However, if he is forced to the sidelines, Brooks could be worth a dart throw in DFS with a favorable matchup against Detroit. Paul George would also see a spike to his usage rate sans Teague, and Monta Ellis would have the opportunity for some more minutes. Stay tuned. Jan 3 - 6:10 PM

Aaron Brooks scored 14 points in 18 minutes off the bench on Sunday, hitting 6-of-9 shots with two 3-pointers, two boards, two assists and a rare blocked shot.

This was Brooks' fifth double-digit scoring game of the season, and he got more action than usual with Rodney Stuckey (hamstring) sidelined and Monta Ellis (ankle) still getting up to speed. Jeff Teague survived an injury scare tonight, which means Brooks should stay on the waiver wire.
Jan 1 - 9:22 PM

Aaron Brooks got hot on Monday, hitting 6-of-8 shots and three 3-pointers for a season-high 19 points, four rebounds, seven assists and a block in a 90-85 loss to his former team, the Bulls.

Brooks hadn't scored more than six points in any December game and the revenge factor may have been at work here. Rodney Stuckey left early after aggravating his hamstring injury and Monta Ellis is out with a groin injury. Brooks could make some noise the rest of the week, but given that he'd done almost nothing before this game means the odds are not in his favor for the to happen.

Aaron Brooks scored a season-high 16 points against the Blazers on Wednesday with three rebounds and three 3-pointers in 21 minutes.

College homecoming narrative? Probably not. The University of Oregon product played 10 minutes in the fourth quarter with this game getting out of hand. He won't have value most nights.

Aaron Brooks played 14 minutes against the Bucks on Thursday with eight points, five assists and one steal.

It was his second game of the season and he seems to have the backup point guard job ahead of Joe Young. Brooks doesn't have much fantasy value.

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.
Tue, Nov 1, 2016 05:47:00 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.
Mon, Oct 31, 2016 03:20:00 PM

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.
Mon, Oct 31, 2016 01:09:00 PM

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

With Brooks out, we'll see some Joe Young in the rotation and possibly a little Monta Ellis at the point. Although, there won't be too, too, too much Monta.

Aaron Brooks (knee) is questionable to play against the Bulls on Saturday.

He might not be in the rotation anyway, so Brooks has no fantasy value right now.
Sat, Oct 29, 2016 02:10:00 PM

Aaron Brooks (knee) will not play against the Nets on Friday.

He is behind Joe Young for the backup minutes anyway, so Brooks has no fantasy value right now.
Fri, Oct 28, 2016 06:33:00 PM

Aaron Brooks was a DNP-CD on Wednesday.

He is currently behind Joe Young for the backup point guard spot. Brooks has no fantasy value right now.
Wed, Oct 26, 2016 10:53:00 PM

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.
Tue, Oct 25, 2016 02:49:00 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.
