Donald Sloan G IND 6 Days

Sloan logged 18 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday. He was able to score six points (2-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added one assist, one steal and he turned the ball over two times.

This is two games in a row where Sloan has seen around 20 minutes of action. We will see what kind of fantasy relevance Sloan can have when only given around 20 minutes of playing time. Much of Sloan's early season success revolved around the fact that he was getting at least 30 minutes a night.

Sloan received another DNP-CD Friday as the Pacers lost to the Kings.

Sloan has sat the last two games with a coach's decision DNP. His value continues to diminish. His play has struggled lately and now he has sat out the last two games. It's not looking good for Sloan.

Sloan received a DNP Thursday as the Pacers lost to the Trail Blazers.

Rodney Stuckey started at point guard, and Chris Copeland saw time at shooting guard while Sloan fell out of the rotation. However, C.J. Watson, C.J. Miles and Copeland combined to shoot just 6-for-29 in the contest. In 18 starts this season, Sloan was averaging 11.3 points, five assists and 4.2 rebounds but was shooting just 37.9 percent from the floor. The poor performances elsewhere on the Pacers could easily move Sloan back into the rotation again.

Sloan will likely be out of the rotation Thursday against the Trail Blazers, the Indianapolis Star reports.

Sloan was expected to start, but will now likely receive little to no minutes in the contest. Instead, Rodney Stuckey will draw the start with C.J. Watson as the backup point guard.

Sloan is expected to draw the start at point guard Thursday against the Blazers, Candace Buckner of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Sloan hasn't scored more than six points in each of his last four contests, and with Rodney Stuckey seeing recent practice time at point guard, there had been rumblings of a prospective switch being made. Coach Frank Vogel expects to stick with his additional starting five, however, so Sloan's role appears to be secure for now. With George Hill (quad) likely out another week or so, there should be plenty of minutes for Sloan and Stuckey to share for the foreseeable future.

Sloan scored 29 points (10-14 FG, 3-5 3P, 6-9 FT) with five assists, two rebounds and a steal in 38 minutes during Monday's win over the Mavericks.

He's been quiet recently, averaging just 9.0 points a game over his previous six contests, so don't expect Sloan to repeat this kind of performance very often.

Sloan scored 31 points (10-21 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 7-10 FT), with seven assists, and six rebounds in 43 minutes during Wednesday's overtime loss to the Wizards.

Sloan realistically had no one backing him up in this game, and it showed in his minutes. Fortunately for the Pacers, they got more than they could have asked from the young point guard. He not only lead the team in minutes, but also in points and assists. Sloan's fantasy value continues to grow, but when C.J. Watson or Rodney Stuckey return we'll have to watch how head coach Frank Vogel handles his minutes.

Sloan scored 12 points (5-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go along with five rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 35 minutes during the Pacers' 97-89 loss versus the Grizzlies on Friday.

Sloan delivered another quality showing on Friday after posting a double-double versus the 76ers in the season opener. So long as George Hill (knee) is out and Sloan continues to play at this level he should start and play sufficient minutes. As far as short-term options go, there aren't many better options than Sloan. However, once Hill does return it's unclear how prominent of a role Sloan will be able to maintain.

Sloan scored 16 points (6-13 FG, 1-4 3P, 3-4 FT) with 10 rebounds and six assists in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 103-91 win over the 76ers.

It was an impressive first start of the season for Sloan, who should see plenty of action while the guards ahead of him on the depth chart recover from various injuries. He won't get to face the woeful Sixers every night, but he should still make a good pickup off your league's waiver wire.

Sloan will start Wednesday's opener against the Sixers.

With George HIll (knee) and C.J. Watson (foot) both out for multiple weeks, it appears Sloan will have a chance to prove he's capable of handling the reins for a depleted Pacers squad. The Texas A&M product started two preseason games and led the Pacers in exhibition scoring at 13.3 points per game. David West (ankle) and Paul George (leg) are also out of action, so Sloan could put up solid numbers as the short-term starter, as he figures to see plenty of minutes at scoring opportunities.
