Donald Sloan G IND 17 Days

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.

Sloan will have his 2014-15 option picked up, ESPN reports.

Sloan had a successful Orlando Summer League which likely played a big part in his contract being picked up by the Pacers. Despite the updated contract status, Sloan will likely have a hard time seeing any action this season while playing behind George Hill, C.J. Watson, and Rodney Stuckey.

Donald Sloan scored a team-high 21 points in Saturday's 101-81 Orlando Pro Summer League loss to the Nets to go with four boards, three assists and one steal.

He made 9-of-11 at the line and was Indiana's best player today. Sloan wasn't very good last season even when George Hill needed to miss time, so he's not likely to be a major part in the rotation.

Donald Sloan will start at point guard vs. the Bucks on Wednesday with the regular starters getting rest.

The Pacers won't have C.J. Watson all the way back, so Sloan could see all the minutes he can handle tonight. His numbers obviously aren't very impressive at 7.3 minutes per game, but his per-36-minute averages are decent at 9.7 points, 3.9 boards, 4.3 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.0 triples. It's a decent matchup for him, so Sloan isn't the worst option at point guard for owners who are feeling saucy.

Donald Sloan returned from a personal absence on Monday, logging 12 minutes on his way to five points, two rebounds and a steal.

Sloan is filling in for C.J. Watson and the Pacers have plenty of guys to play backup point guard in a pinch. He has no fantasy value.

Pacers guard Donald Sloan is expected to return from a personal absence on Monday.

He should absorb 10+ minutes in a backup role with C.J. Watson (elbow, hamstring) still questionable to play, but fantasy owners can ignore him as long as George Hill is healthy.

Donald Sloan is not with the team for this weekend's games for personal reasons.

He will not play on Friday and Saturday. The Pacers have C.J. Watson back from an elbow injury, so there's no need for Sloan on the second unit.
