Hibbert will see a reduced role if he opts into his contract for next season, Candace Buckner of the Indy Star reports.

Hibbert has a lucrative, $15.5 million player option for next season, a number he's unlikely to approach on a per-year basis if he were to hit the open market. Pacers' president Larry Bird sounded frustrated with Hibbert's declining production, particularly his pedestrian rebounding for his size. While Indiana would certainly find a role for Hibbert next season, it seems like the team is prepared to move forth without him.

Hibbert scored 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 FT) with 11 rebounds, four assists and a block in just 16 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Knicks.

The soft Knicks' frontcourt allowed Hibbert to produce decent numbers despite his lack of court time. With Pacers coach Frank Vogel currently splitting minutes in the middle three ways, don't expect Hibbert to turn things around before the regular season draws to a close.

Hibbert did not score, shooting 0-6 from the field, with five rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Wizards.

Two days after posting a strong double-double against the Rockets, Hibbert puts up this dud of a line. On the surface his 11.3 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.6 blocks this month look good, but his inconsistency is maddening for owners.

Hibbert recorded a double-double in 32 minutes Monday against the Rockets as he scored 18 points (8-12 FG, 2-2 FT) to go along with 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.

The Pacers are trying to make a playoff push and Hibbert is stepping up his game as he is averaging 18.0 points and 8.0 rebounds over his last three games. He continues to provide value on the defensive side as well as he has at least one block in each of his last 10 games. He might be heating up at the right time for fantasy owners.

Hibbert (elbow) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Bucks, Candace Buckner of the Indy Star reports.

Hibbert was held out of Wednesday's practice, but coach Frank Vogel noted he expects the center to play Thursday night. However, he's battling an infection in his elbow, so at this point it remains unclear whether he'll be able to take the court. If Hibbert is held out, Ian Mahinmi will likely get the start.
