  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Expected to play

    Coach Rick Carlisle said Smith (ankle), who's listed as questionable, is expected to play Sunday against the Hawks, Tony East of SI.com reports.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Questionable for Sunday

    Smith is questionable for Sunday's game against the Hawks due to a left ankle sprain.

    There's a chance the Pacers end up being quite thin in terms of frontcourt depth, as Isaiah Jackson (hamstring) and Obi Toppin (ankle) are also questionable for the season finale Sunday. Smith has scored in double digits in three of his last five appearances off the bench.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Good to go

    Smith (ankle) is available for Sunday's game against the Heat, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    Smith sprained his left ankle during Friday's win over the Thunder, but he'll shake off a questionable tag and suit up Sunday. Over his last eight appearances (one start), Smith has averaged 8.3 points, 6.1 rebounds and 0.9 blocks in 15.0 minutes per game.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Gets questionable tag

    Smith (ankle) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Heat.

    Smith sprained his left ankle in Friday's 126-112 win over the Thunder. Prior to getting injured, he recorded 12 points (3-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-7 FT), six rebounds and two assists in 13 minutes. More clarity on his status against Miami should come once he tests out his ankle during pregame warmups, but Isaiah Jackson would likely be the prime beneficiary as frontcourt depth if Smith does not get the green light.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Injures left ankle

    Smith suffered a left ankle sprain during Friday's 126-112 win over the Thunder. He finished with 12 points (3-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-7 FT), six rebounds and two assists in 13 minutes.

    Smith was deemed questionable to return after checking out of the contest with 5:55 remaining in the third quarter, but he never re-entered the game and the Pacers didn't release another update on his status. If he's forced to miss Sunday's game against Miami, Isaiah Jackson would replace Smith in the rotation as the top backup to Myles Turner.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Not starting Friday

    Smith won't start Friday's game against the Thunder.

    With Myles Turner (finger) out, Smith drew a spot start Wednesday and posted eight points, nine rebounds and two blocks in 22 minutes. However, the former has been cleared to suit up Friday, so the latter will return to his usual bench role. Over his last 10 appearances off the bench, Smith has averaged 8.7 points and 6.2 rebounds in 15.9 minutes per game.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Joining first unit

    Smith will start Wednesday's game against the Nets, Tony East of SI.com reports.

    Smith will step into the starting lineup in place of Myles Turner (finger) on Wednesday. In 13 starts this season, Smith is averaging 11.3 points and 6.5 rebounds over 22.6 minutes.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Steps up off bench in double-double

    Smith contributed 17 points (7-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds and one block in 16 minutes before getting ejected from Monday's 133-111 victory over the Nets.

    Smith stepped up off the bench with Myles Turner (finger) exiting Monday's contest, leading all Indiana players in rebounds while ending as one of three Pacers players with 15 or more points in a double-double performance. Smith has hauled in 10 or more boards in five games this season, posting at least 15 points and 10 rebounds in four outings.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Ejected from Monday's game

    Smith was ejected in the second half of Monday's game against the Nets after being assessed with a Flagrant 2 foul, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

    There was a scuffle between Smith and Dennis Schroder, and after a six-minute review from the referees, Smith ended up being ejected. This poses problems for a Pacers team that's already missing Myles Turner (finger), meaning Isaiah Jackson should see plenty of action in the second half.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Strong per-minute production

    Smith totaled 11 points (3-9 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 3-6 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block across 19 minutes during Monday's 108-103 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Smith is averaging 21.0 points, 11.4 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per 36 minutes this season, although that statistic should be viewed in a vacuum given Smith has not exceeded 30 minutes in any contest thus far. Smith's defensive principles and in-between status as a subpar rim protector while also being exploitable on the wings limits his workload, but he is certainly capable of pounding the glass and scoring effectively when given the usage.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Removed from injury report

    Smith (illness) isn't listed on the Pacers' injury report for Tuesday's game against Oklahoma City.

    Smith sat out Sunday's matchup against the Magic due to illness, but he should be good to go for Tuesday. He's averaging 9.5 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 15.3 minutes over four March appearances.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Sits out with illness Sunday

    Smith (illness) didn't play in Sunday's 111-97 win over the Magic.

    Just after tipoff, the Pacers announced that Smith was questionable to play due to an illness, despite having not appearing on the injury report beforehand. He ultimately didn't see the court in the win, with Isaiah Jackson entering the rotation in Smith's stead as the backup center. Smith should be considered day-to-day and questionable for Tuesday's game at Oklahoma City.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Considered questionable

    The Pacers have given Smith a questionable designation shortly after tipoff Sunday against the Magic due to an illness.

    Smith was not on the injury report prior to the game. Isaiah Jackson would likely be the primary beneficiary in terms of center depth should Smith ultimately be unable to return.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Solid production off bench

    Smith supplied 14 points (5-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-6 FT), two rebounds, four assists and one block in 20 minutes during Thursday's 113-111 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Smith, who was sidelined for nearly two weeks in mid-February due to back spasms, has scored in double figures in back-to-back games and played 20 minutes for the first time since Feb. 4. When at 100 percent, Smith has provided strong production behind Myles Turner, but the former still doesn't need to be on fantasy radars in standard leagues.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Available Monday

    Smith (back) is available for Monday's game against the Raptors.

    Smith will suit up for a second straight game after missing four consecutive contests due to low back spasms. On Sunday, he played 15 minutes and finished with two points (1-6 FG), six rebounds and two assists in 15 minutes during a blowout win over Dallas.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Listed questionable for Monday

    Smith (back) is questionable for Monday's game against the Raptors.

    After missing four straight games due to low back spasms, Smith returned to action for Sunday's 133-111 win over Dallas, finishing with two points (1-6 FG, 0-4 3Pt), six rebounds and two assists in 15 minutes. He played all of the backup center minutes behind starter Myles Turner while the game was competitive, as third-stringer Isaiah Jackson didn't check into the contest until the Pacers held an 18-point lead with 2:57 remaining in the fourth quarter. Smith didn't suffer any reported setbacks Sunday, but he could still end up sitting Monday for maintenance purposes. If that's the case, Jackson would likely re-enter the rotation as Turner's backup.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Available Sunday

    Smith (back) is available for Sunday's game against Dallas.

    Smith is cleared to make his first appearance since Feb. 8. However, it's unclear how large of a role he'll have, as Myles Turner and Isaiah Jackson are both healthy and playing well.
