UPDATE: Jan. 29, 5:22 p.m. — Brogdon is in and Turner is out vs. the Bulls. Oladipo will be limited to around 24 minutes.

The Indiana Pacers and Chicago Bulls are playing some basketball in Indiana on Wednesday night and 15 — yes 15 — players have popped up on the injury report. Granted most of them are either out or probable for the Bulls, it’s still a ton of players worth noting.

The Pacers have the most notable names with Victor Oladipo set to return to the lineup. Malcolm Brogdon and Myles Turner are questionable, but look more like game-time decisions. Zach LaVine rolled his ankle on Monday vs. the Spurs, but is probable and it doesn’t look like he’s in danger of missing tonight.

Fantasy basketball analysis

We’ll focus on the Pacers. With Dipo back, he should take some minutes away from some rotation players, but he’s also not expected to play a ton of minutes. If say Brogdon and Turner are ruled out, Sabonis ($9,400) and Aaron Holiday ($4,800) are attractive plays in tournaments. Sabonis is an OK cash-game staple, but I like the high-priced guards on this slate. TJ Warren ($5,800) also in GPP consideration since Dipo will be limited and the Bulls have a short rotation.
