Paul George scored 25 points during a 109-94 win over the Suns on Wednesday, adding 13 rebounds, one assist, three steals and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

The Pacers were really attacking during this game for a season-high 41 attempts from the line. George himself made 8-of-10 and after the game he said he wanted to put pressure on the refs to make the calls. He also had an interesting comment on the heels of a blowout loss with Klay Thompson's 60 points. "We're the opposite of the Warriors. We got drivers," George said on the Suns TV broadcast. Now that George is back and healthy, expect him to fill up the box score.

Jeff Teague scored 19 points with five rebounds, 11 assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday.

The was his first productive game since Paul George returned to the lineup on Sunday. Teague thrived without George on the year and probably won't be as good now that he's back. On the year, Teague's usage rate is 3.0 higher without George while his efficiency is up 7.6 true shooting percentage points, as well. Still, he should flirt with top-50 value going forward.
Dec 8 - 1:01 AM

Myles Turner made a career-high three 3-pointers against the Suns on Wednesday, finishing with 20 points, four rebounds, one steal and two blocks.

He's never made more than one 3-pointer in any game in his career, so this output was a surprise. On the other side of things, Turner has been very consistent with his blocks with at least one in all but three games. Turner is tied with Giannis Antetokounmpo for fourth in the NBA on blocks per game and he's actually been solid for fantasy owners in both free throw and field goal percentage. He's posted top-30 value in standard leagues on the year.
Dec 8 - 12:56 AM

Georges Niang has been sent down for a D-League stint.

Niang rarely gets meaningful minutes in Indiana, so there aren't any fantasy implications here.
Dec 6 - 3:00 PM

Myles Turner hit 3-of-8 shots for six points, five rebounds and two blocks in 24 minutes on Monday.

The Warriors literally ran circles around the Pacers in this one, finishing with an 11-point lead after one, a 20-point lead at halftime and a final score of 142-106. Turner has been a little disappointing at times this season, but is still getting it done for his owners. Don't let this game worry you, as it was basically a practice session for the Warriors in front of 20,000 fans.
Dec 6 - 1:06 AM

Paul George had 21 points and 10 rebounds in 31 minutes Monday, but hit just 4-of-12 shots and didn't do much else.

He did hit 13-of-13 free throws, but the Pacers were embarrassed by the Warriors after shocking the Clippers on Sunday. The fact PG played in both games and played pretty well in them is a great sign. He missed three games with a sprained ankle before returning on Sunday.
Dec 6 - 1:03 AM

Paul George (ankle) and C.J. Miles (knee) will play Monday vs. the Warriors.

George returned from a three-game absence on Sunday and logged 34 minutes, while Miles got back from a six-game stint on the sidelines and was limited to 15 minutes. PG-13 will likely again be without a minutes limit tonight, while Miles should be able to get closer to the 20-minute mark.
Dec 5 - 4:15 PM

Paul George (sore left ankle) returned to action on Sunday with 16 points on 6-of-13 shooting, seven rebounds, five assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

George missed six of the Pacers' past seven games and he showed some rust early, going scoreless in the first quarter, but he quickly found his groove in an impressive road win. The offense ran through him extensively as the Pacers fended off the Clippers down the stretch, and the fact that he logged 34 minutes proves that he doesn't have any medical restrictions.
Dec 5 - 12:27 AM

C.J. Miles (sore left knee) came off Indiana's bench with 12 points and five rebounds on Sunday, making 4-of-7 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs in just 15 minutes.

"You can go as hard as you can, but it’s still going to take you a little bit more of game playing to get into actual game shape," Miles said before tonight's contest. He didn't seem to miss a beat, however, and is worth grabbing if you need an efficient scorer and 3-point shooter who won't turn the ball over. His playing time should increase over Indy's next few games.

Kevin Seraphin (sore left knee) picked up a healthy DNP-CD on Sunday.

Sunday's game marked the first time all season that the Pacers didn't have anyone inactive due to injuries, but Seraphin couldn't crack the rotation. He won't be worth fantasy owners' attention while Myles Turner and Al Jefferson are active.
Dec 5 - 12:25 AM

Glenn Robinson III played 14 scoreless minutes off the Pacers bench on Sunday, finishing with just one rebound, one steal and two personal fouls.

GR3 could carve out a spot in the rotation due to his excellent play as a fill-in starter, when he averaged 15.2 points, 2.2 threes and 6.4 rebounds in five games. With Paul George and C.J. Miles both active, however, there may not be enough minutes to go around. If you want to cut him for a hot free agent, go ahead.
Dec 5 - 12:24 AM

Rodney Stuckey lit up for 16 points in 21 minutes on Sunday, hitting 7-of-10 shots to go along with three rebounds, three assists and two turnovers.

Stuckey has been nowhere near fantasy relevance this season, in part because he's averaging just 8.7 points on 42.9 percent FGs and 62.5 percent FTs (3.6 attempts). The fact that his mini-eruption coincided with the return of C.J. Miles and Paul George seems inconsequential, and nearly all owners should leave him on the wire.
Dec 5 - 12:24 AM

Pacers coach Nate McMillan cautioned before Sunday's game, "You don’t want to just throw [Paul George and C.J. Miles] out there and play them a bunch of minutes."

George (ankle) and Miles (knee) are both returning from extended absences in a tough road matchup vs. the Clippers tonight. Assuming they both play reduced minutes, Glenn Robinson III should be the primary beneficiary.
Dec 4 - 8:59 PM

C.J. Miles (sore left knee) will play Sunday vs. the Clippers.

Miles will be returning from a six-game absence, and Nate McMillan hinted that he could be working with a minutes limit in his first game back, so he's not a great DFS target tonight. However, he was playing really well prior to going down, so he's worth a speculative add in standard leagues. Rodney Stuckey and Glenn Robinson III will take a hit with Miles back on the active roster.
Dec 4 - 7:05 PM

Kevin Seraphin (knee) is available to play vs. the Clippers on Sunday.

Seraphin missed three games with the injury and his return doesn't have big fantasy implications. He'll take away some playing time from Al Jefferson, but that's about it.
