Trevor Booker (sprained right ankle) played four scoreless minutes off the bench vs. L.A. on Sunday.

Booker returned from a one-game absence but didn't see much daylight in the rotation -- instead, it was Domantas Sabonis (two points, four boards) logging 19 minutes. Neither guy is worth owning while Myles Turner is healthy.

Trevor Booker (right ankle sprain) is available to play vs. the Clippers on Sunday.

Booker doesn't have much fantasy value himself, outside of very deep leagues, but his presence means fewer minutes for Domantas Sabonis.
Apr 1 - 3:18 PM

Trevor Booker (sprained right ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Clippers.

Booker sprained his ankle after just two minutes of action in Tuesday's victory over Golden State. He limped off the court and did not return. Booker was also sidelined for Thursday's contest. Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner will soak up additional minutes if Booker is ruled out of Sunday's game as well.

Trevor Booker (sprained right ankle) is out for Thursday against the Kings.

He was called questionable yesterday, but we weren't expecting him to play despite the questionable tag. With him out, the Pacers may pull out more two-center lineups with Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner, or they could choose to go small with more Lance Stephenson.

Trevor Booker (sprained right ankle) is questionable to play Thursday against the Kings.

Booker needed to be helped off the court on Tuesday, so it would be surprising if he did play tomorrow. We should get official confirmation on his status after shootaround, but if he's out, it'll be Thaddeus Young and Domantas Sabonis divvying up his minutes.
Mar 28 - 7:03 PM

Trevor Booker (ankle) will not return on Tuesday vs. the Warriors.

He had to be helped off the court and it sounds like he could miss additional time. Luckily for the Pacers, Domantas Sabonis made his return to the floor tonight. Look for Thaddeus Young to get a few extra minutes while Booker is out.
Mar 27 - 11:47 PM

Trevor Booker left Tuesday's game with a right ankle injury and was helped to the locker room in the first quarter.

We're hoping it's nothing more than an ankle sprain, but he was grabbing the back of his ankle and didn't exactly leave under his own power. If he's going to miss time, Myles Turner, Thaddeus Young and Domantas Sabonis would all see a few more minutes each night. The way Booker was helped off the court leads us to believe he won't return tonight.
Mar 27 - 11:08 PM

Trevor Booker scored seven points with five rebounds in 13 minutes against the Clippers on Friday.

He slid over to play some center minutes behind Myles Turner and did get a few PF minutes. Domantas Sabonis should be back soon, but you weren't counting on Booker in most leagues anyway.
Mar 23 - 9:40 PM

Trevor Booker got hot early on Wednesday, finishing with 10 points on 5-of-8 shooting, four rebounds and one steal in 17 minutes.

Domantas Sabonis (ankle) could be targeting a return on Friday, although we've yet to see him back on the practice court. That leaves some extra room in the frontcourt, but it's also absorbed by Al Jefferson as a backup center -- Booker hasn't played more than 19 minutes since joining Indiana. He can be left on the wire while Thaddeus Young is healthy.
Mar 21 - 11:34 PM

Trevor Booker scored eight points with five rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

The center spot is nothing new for the one they call Cook Book, and he had to play it tonight. That may also be the case on Monday against the Lakers in what would be a better matchup for him, so he could be an option in DFS. Although, that would change if Myles Turner (ankle) or Domantas Sabonis are back.
Mar 17 - 9:57 PM

Trevor Booker went scoreless in 19 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday, adding five rebounds and one assist.

He did see minutes at center in this game and that may continue because Myles Turner (ankle) also got hurt. If Turner can't play on Saturday, Booker may be worth a look in deeper leagues because Al Jefferson can't play 48 minutes. Well, at least we don't think he can.
Mar 15 - 9:37 PM

Trevor Booker (ankle) is available against the Raptors on Thursday.

He should be getting the vast majority of the backup center minutes and maybe he gets some center minutes with Domantas Sabonis (ankle) out. Booker did play down the stretch at times on Tuesday, so he'll get run if he's close to healthy.
Mar 15 - 6:01 PM

Trevor Booker (ankle) is a game-time call against the Raptors on Thursday.

He would be looking at more minutes tonight with Domantas Sabonis (ankle) already out. If Booker can't go, we'll see more small-ball lineups while Al Jefferson would be a lock for the backup C minutes.
Mar 15 - 5:33 PM

Trevor Booker (sprained right ankle) is questionable for Thursday against the Raptors.

He was out there down the stretch for some defensive possessions on Tuesday night, so this likely is minor. Booker would also be looking at more minutes because Domantas Sabonis (ankle) is already out. If Booker can't go, Thaddeus Young may get more run while Al Jefferson, Glenn Robinson III and Bojan Bogdanovic could play slightly more.
