Andrew Nembhard News
Indiana Pacers guard Andrew Nembhard (back) continues to deal with back spasms, which have caused him to miss the last three consecutive games. Back problems are one of the hardest injuries to predict in terms of a return timetable. The good thing is that he hasn't been ruled out ahead of time and he remains listed as questionable on Friday morning. If he's unable to get on the court, however, Tyrese Haliburton will see as many minutes as possible, while T.J. McConnell will likely be the primary backup.
Indiana Pacers guard Andrew Nembhard (back) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's matchup against the Hawks. He's having trouble with his lower back, and it kept Nembhard off the court for the first time this season on Sunday versus Orlando. Nembhard's fantasy stock has taken a big hit this season, as he has gone from averaging close to 28 minutes a night to only getting around 18 minutes. The 23-year-old has contributed 7.5 points and 4.0 assists. If Nembhard is out, T.J. McConnell will get more work as the backup point guard behind Tyrese Haliburton.
Indiana Pacers guard Andrew Nembhard (kidney stone) will miss the team's third preseason contest while he still deals with the kidney stone that has ailed him for most of the preseason now. He has been ramping up to hopefully play in their final game of the preseason on Friday though. Nembhard is currently looking at a reserve guard role, but could potentially rise in the depth chart based on his performance throughout the season. He's only going into his second year in the league and showed some very good flashes last season. As of right now, he's not on the radar in fantasy drafts, but could become a solid waiver wire addition later on in the season.
Indiana Pacers guard Andrew Nembhard (neck) participated in Thursday's practice. Nembhard didn't travel with the team for their two-game road trip to kick off the preseason due to a neck injury as well as a kidney stone but he appears to be improving after getting in a limited session. Indiana isn't back in action until Monday versus the Atlanta Hawks, so the 23-year-old combo guard has some time to return to the court. T.J. McConnell has started at the 1 in both of Indy's exhibition affairs so far, though franchise cornerstone Tyrese Haliburton hasn't appeared yet, either. It remains to be seen if Nembhard, who received 63 starts in his rookie year, will regularly play with the first unit after the Pacers signed Swiss Army knife Bruce Brown this past offseason.
