The Scoop:It's worth noting that Pacers head coach Frank Vogel said that Watson would be able to play if it were the regular season. While Watson isn't the best option in standard fantasy leagues, he should see enough minutes at both guard spots to be a worthy late-round flier in deeper leagues.
C.J. Watson made four 3-pointers in 26 bench minutes to finish Sunday's road loss with 16 points, three rebounds, five assists and one steal.
The Scoop:The Pacers need Watson to be aggressive this season, and he's likely to have a green light offensively whenever he steps on the court. Deep-league owners should keep an eye on him as a dirt-cheap source of points, 3-pointers, assists and steals.
The Scoop:The Pacers played Solomon Hill as their sixth man as the first sub on Tuesday, replacing Rodney Stuckey. It should be interesting to see how Watson fits in and whether or not he gets run at shooting guard.
