UPDATE: March 6, 6:33 p.m. — Brogdon has been ruled out vs. the Bulls. Oladipo is available. McDermott is out. Warren is out. Jakarr Sampson is available. I think that pretty much covers the Pacers injury report. Aaron Holiday will start in place of Brogdon and is a good value play on DraftKings at $4,000. With Warren sidelined, even better for Holiday, but I also think Dipo ($5,500) could end having a decent game. Brian Bowen will start in place of Warren. He’s an interesting value at $3,000 on DK, but really hasn’t gotten any sort of playing time lately.

UPDATE: March 5, 4:19 p.m. Brogdon is doubtful to play in Friday’s game vs. the Chicago Bulls. T.J. Warren is questionable along with Doug McDermott. Victor Oladipo is also questionable to play. He’s been sidelined the past few games.

Indiana Pacers guard Malcolm Brogdon is dealing with yet another injury. He left Wednesday’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks because of left hip soreness and is questionable to return, according to The Athletic’s Scott Agness.

Brogdon tallied four points, two rebonds and two assists in 11 minutes before exiting the contest. He’s being backed up by T.J. McConnell, who has 10 points, four rebounds, and two assists at the half. McConnell will likely run the offense for the remainder of the night if Brogdon doesn’t return.

Brodgdon has dealt with several injuries this year and has missed 14 games so far in 2019-20. The Pacers have still managed to rank fifth in the Eastern Conference standings though.
