Aaron Nesmith Cleared For Sunday's Action

Indiana Pacers forward Aaron Nesmith (shoulder) will be good to go for Sunday's Game 4 against the Knicks. He hurt his right shoulder in the previous contest, which gave Nesmith a questionable tag ahead of Game 4. But the team has upgraded Nesmith to available ahead of tip-off. The 24-year-old typically provides a little bit of everything, averaging 10.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 0.9 blocks, and 0.7 steals for the 2024 playoffs.

Aaron Nesmith Back For Pacers Wednesday

Indiana Pacers forward Aaron Nesmith (knee) will rejoin the action on Wednesday versus Chicago. He's back after missing one game with a bruised knee. Nesmith's form has been a bit up and down lately, but he's still had a decent month by posting 10.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.0 blocks. Meeting a defensively mediocre team like the Bulls could help Nesmith break out of his shooting slump -- the 24-year-old has hit only 40.8 percent of his shots in March.

Aaron Nesmith Listed As Questionable Versus Dallas

Indiana Pacers forward Aaron Nesmith (quadriceps) could come out of the lineup again on Tuesday versus Dallas. He's played the last two games after returning from an ankle sprain, but Nesmith is now dealing with a bruise on his left quadriceps. Nesmith has been a good glue guy for the Pacers in the starting unit, registering 12.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.0 steals across the season. Bennedict Mathurin had a run as a starter during his most recent absence and appears poised to fill Nesmith's spot again if he's unavailable. The 2024 NBA Rookie Challenge MVP has finally found some consistency lately and boasts solid numbers as a starter, with 15.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.9 assists.

Aaron Nesmith Available Friday

On Friday, Indiana Pacers forward Aaron Nesmith (ankle) will be in the lineup against the New Orleans Pelicans. The 24-year-old hasn't played tending to a right ankle sprain in the team's last four games. Andrew Nembhard and Bennedict Mathurin have been a part of the starting five. With Nesmith in, Nembhard will likely move to the bench. In 51 games, Nesmith averages 12.6 points and 1.4 assists while playing 27.1 minutes per contest this season.

Aaron Nesmith Draws Questionable Tag Friday

Indiana Pacers forward Aaron Nesmith (ankle) has been tagged as questionable against the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday. The 24-year-old wing hasn't played in the team's last four games while he tends to a sprained right ankle, and he may be forced to miss a fifth. He'll likely test it out during shootaround and warmup to see if he can fully give it a go. Andrew Nembhard and Bennedict Mathurin have joined the starting five in his absence and have both contributed some solid stat lines. Nembhard would be the more likely candidate to move to the bench once Nesmith returns, but for now, they're both solid fantasy plays regardless of the league or format.

Aaron Nesmith Listed As Questionable

Indiana Pacers forward Aaron Nesmith (ankle) is regarded as questionable for Wednesday's tilt against New Orleans. He would be out for a fourth straight game if Nesmith can't return from a right ankle sprain. Bennedict Mathurin has taken over from Nesmith in the starting lineup and could be in for another big night on Wednesday if he continues to receive extra minutes. The newly crowned NBA Rookie Challenge MVP matched his career high with a 34-point effort against Toronto on Monday.

Aaron Nesmith Downgraded To Out

The Indiana Pacers have downgraded forward Aaron Nesmith (ankle) from doubtful to out for Monday's game versus the Toronto Raptors. Nesmith sprained his right ankle in Indy's final game before the All-Star break and still isn't ready to play, but he'll hope to return in Wednesday's matchup with the New Orleans Pelicans. Bennedict Mathurin and Andrew Nembhard are both worthwhile streamers in a contest with the highest implied point total (245.5) on Monday's four-game slate.

Aaron Nesmith Won't Play Thursday

Indiana Pacers forward Aaron Nesmith (ankle) will not be available for Thursday's game against the Detroit Pistons. The 24-year-old sustained the injury in the team's last game before the All-Star break against the Raptors. Fortunately, the injury is not as severe as initially feared, but Nesmith is still expected to miss some time, although it shouldn't sideline him for an extended period. T.J. McConnell and Bennedict Mathurin will likely see increased minutes until his return. Nesmith has been averaging 12.6 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 1.4 assists in 27.1 minutes per game this year.

Aaron Nesmith Limited In Practice But Injury Not As Bad As Feared

Indiana Pacers forward Aaron Nesmith (lower leg) appears to have escaped serious injury. He hurt his right leg on an awkward fall following a dunk attempt in the team's final game before the All-Star break. Nesmith was limited in Tuesday's practice but could still be an option for Thursday's matchup against Detroit. "No update really other than not as bad as originally feared," Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle said on Tuesday. "He was limited today. He's making significant progress each day. We'll see how he's doing in a couple days." If Nesmith can't play on Thursday, Doug McDermott and Bennedict Mathurin will have to step up.

Aaron Nesmith Hurts Right Leg In Wednesday's Win

Indiana Pacers forward Aaron Nesmith injured his right leg on Wednesday versus Toronto. He exited the contest early in the third quarter after landing awkwardly on a dunk attempt. Nesmith needed help to get to the locker room. The team called it a shin injury, but Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle suggested postgame that it could actually be an ankle injury. Nesmith reportedly walked out of the arena, so it's possible he managed to avoid serious injury. However, we won't know for sure before Indiana provides further updates. If he can't recover over the All-Star break, Carlisle will need to tweak his starting five, with Bennedict Mathurin (knee) and Doug McDermott getting more opportunities.
