The Scoop:It'll be his second straight game out of the lineup and the Pacers will throw Donald Sloan in the rotation again tonight. They also used a backcourt of Evan Turner and Lance Stephenson on Wednesday, but Turner probably won't have garbage time to help his stats again.
The Scoop:Watson was listed as day-to-day by the Pacers on Thursday with the injury to his shooting elbow. Donald Sloan saw eight minutes off the bench with Watson out Wednesday night and would be in line to see more time if Sloan is out Friday, but Evan Turner and Lance Stephenson would get the larger value boost from Watson's absence.
The Scoop:The injury is to his shooting elbow and not to his left elbow, which was a problem back in 2012. Watson sitting out means Donald Sloan will likely crack the rotation while the Pacers could also run with a backcourt of Evan Turner and Lance Stephenson on occasion tonight. There are not many fantasy implications here.
