Young compiled 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt), 14 rebounds, three assists and one block across 39 minutes in Thursday's 119-114 loss to the Cavaliers in Game 3 of the series.

EDGE Analysis

Young outperformed his counterpart at power forward, Kevin Love (13 points, six boards in 27 minutes), but with LeBron James (41 points, 13 rebounds, 12 assists) going supernova for the Cavaliers, the Pacers fell into a 3-0 series hole. Coach Nate McMillan has shortened his bench through each of the first three games of the series and that's unlikely to change in Game 4 on Sunday, so expect Young to see another 35-plus-minute workload.

Young scored 16 points (7-11 FG, 2-6 FT) with six steals, three rebounds and one assist across 33 minutes in Monday's 117-111 Game 2 loss to the Cavs.

EDGE Analysis

Young's six steals tied the season-high that he achieved on three previous occasions this year, and set a new benchmark in the category through the first three days of the postseason. Young has been efficient scoring the ball through the Pacers' first two playoff games, shooting 66.7 percent from the field, but he could stand to be more aggressive on offense as he's only averaging 7.5 shot attempts per game.

Young had 20 points (10-15 FG), eight rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 33 minutes during Monday's 120-111 win over the 76ers.

EDGE Analysis

Young has scored in double figures during eight straight contests, this after failing to do so in 11 of the first 16 games following the All-Star break. Al Jefferson (ankle) has missed these last eight bouts, and Young has seen 31.8 minutes per night during Jefferson's absence. Jefferson has reportedly been cleared to play since last Thursday, but he has remained out nonetheless. Young and the Pacers need a win on Wednesday versus the Hawks in order to guarantee their place in the postseason.

Young collected 12 points (6-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 11 rebounds, three assists and one steal across 35 minutes during Thursday's 104-89 victory over the Bucks.

EDGE Analysis

Young has taken on an expanded role for the Pacers since March 28, the first game that Al Jefferson (ankle) missed due to injury. During the five games leading up to Thursday in that stretch, Young averaged 15.2 points and 9.2 rebounds per game compared to his season averages of 10.8 points and 5.9 rebounds per game. Owners in year-long formats are likely pleased with Young's uptick in production, considering he's seen a dropoff from last season, and DFS players could probably benefit by keeping an eye on Al Jefferson's health moving forward.

Young scored 15 points (7-15 FG, 1-1 FT) while adding 11 rebounds and two steals in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 108-90 win over the Raptors.

EDGE Analysis

He's scored in double digits in five straight games, averaging 15.2 points and 9.0 boards over that stretch. With the Pacers currently clinging to the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference, they'll need Young to continue producing like he did for the Nets last season if they're going to make it to the playoffs.

Young posted 16 points (8-12 FG), 13 rebounds, three assists and one steal over 33 minutes in Wednesday's 110-97 loss to the Grizzlies.

EDGE Analysis

It's been a rough road for Young since he returned from injury after the All-Star break, as he simply hasn't looked like his old self. Wednesday's double-double was his first since late December and it was also his highest rebound total of the year, so there's some hope that he's finally turned the corner. Though Young has seen his output dip since joining the Pacers this year, he's still provided decent output, as he's the third-leading rebounder on the team despite missing almost a month. Although there's cause to be cautious about plugging Young into your lineups, Wednesday's outing proves there is plenty of gas in the tank for a surprise surge in the final weeks of the season.

Young finished with two points (0-7 FG, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 13 minutes during Sunday's 107-94 victory over the 76ers.

EDGE Analysis

Young was awful from the field, and ended up only seeing 13 minutes as a result -- quite the dip from his season average of 30.2 minutes per game. While he managed to accumulate some other stats in limited action, coach Nate McMillan seemingly couldn't justify keeping him on the floor for an extended period of time. He'll look to bounce back against his former team Tuesday against the Timberwolves.

Young accumulated 16 points (7-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal across 26 minutes during Sunday's 116-91 loss to the Raptors.

EDGE Analysis

Young regained his touch from the field Sunday after going a combined 3-for-10 over the previous two outings. While he isn't known for his scoring -- averaging just 10.7 points across 30.3 points per game on the season -- Young provides a solid combination of rebounds (5.8 per game) and steals (1.7 per game) while nailing 38.9 percent of his 1.9 three-point attempts per game.

Young tallied four points (2-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist and one steal across 37 minutes in a 87-81 loss to the Knicks on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Despite receiving a huge swath of minutes, Young was practically invisible during his time on the court, at least on the offensive end. His four shot attempts were tied for his third-fewest of the season, preventing him from extending his streak of double-digit scoring to four games. Even after the poor showing, it's encouraging to at least see Young surpass 30 minutes for the third time in four games. The forward has largely struggled after returning from a wrist injury following the All-Star break, but his 60 percent mark from the field over the last four games suggests he's turned a corner.

Young scored 18 points (9-14 FG, 0-2 FT) with eight rebounds and one steal across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 115-98 win against the Pistons.

EDGE Analysis

It was Young's most productive outing since he dropped 19 points in Salt Lake City against the Jazz back on Jan. 21. He entered Wednesday's game with just 22 total points over his past five outings. He'll need a lot more games like Wednesday before he re-gains the trust of fantasy owners again.
