Donald Sloan G IND 1 Month

Sloan scored 11 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3PT, 2-2 FT) and added three rebounds and five assists in 23 minutes against the Pistons on Friday.

Sloan has had an up and down season this year. The third year point guard started the season by earning more than 30 minutes a night, while producing as a top 15 point guard in fantasy. He was a great pickup for fantasy owners. Then the third year player found himself on the bench for poor play and because starter George Hill returned. Now the point guard is finding 20 minutes a night over his last five games while producing 9.6 points and 4.0 assists while shooting 51.4 percent from the field. It is unlikely Sloan will return to the production he had early in the season, but if he continues to share the ball while not turning the ball over, he should continue to find minutes for the Pacers.

Sloan had five points in 22 minutes coming off the bench Monday against. He added three assists and two rebounds in the contest.

Sloan had averaged 34.5 minutes as a starter, but still saw 22 minutes Monday. His production dropped off significantly, however, as he only attempted two field goals after taking at least 11 shots in his two previous games.

Sloan got the start at point guard for the ailing Pacer's backcourt Friday. He finished with 10 points (4-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt) eight rebounds, six assists and one steal in 33 minutes.

Sloan's production is based on the health of the players in front of him. When George Hill (groin) and C.J. Watson (foot) come back from injuries, Sloan is almost certain to return to his reserve role off the bench. Hill started and played 31 minutes Wednesday but was unable to go Friday.

Sloan scored nine points (4-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt) with seven rebounds, four assists and one steal in 36 minutes in a start with C.J. Watson (illness) ailing.

Sloan has dropped out of fantasy relevance with the return to the lineup of Watson and will continue to fall further into obscurity when George Hill (quad) returns, but if owners were able to stream him in when Watson was announced as out, his line was solid, but not spectacular.

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.
