Top Buddy Hield News

  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: Middle-of-the-road effort in return

    Hield had 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, five assists and two steals across 24 minutes during Friday's 121-117 win over the Thunder.

    Hield's return from a two-game absence didn't yield any exceptional results, but it wasn't bad, either. Hield notched five of his 13 points early in the fourth quarter to give the Pacers a bit of an offensive boost, but he wasn't part of the team's late-game equation. Hield appears bound to play off the bench the remainder of the way after starting the first 73 contests of the season, but that amounts to just four more games at this point.

    Hield (illness) isn't on the injury report for Friday's game versus the Thunder.

  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: Practices Thursday

    Hield (illness) participated in Thursday's practice session, Tony East of reports.

  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: Ruled out Wednesday

    Hield has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Bucks due to a non-COVID illness.

    Hield was initially left off the Pacers' injury report after missing Monday's game against Dallas due to his illness, but he'll sit for a second consecutive matchup. Andrew Nembhard and Bennedict Mathurin are candidates to see increased run once again.

  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: Left off injury report

    Hield (illness) isn't on the injury report for Wednesday's game versus the Bucks.

  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: Ruled out with illness

    Hield won't play Monday versus the Mavericks due to an illness.

    Hield's next chance to play will be Wednesday against the Bucks. The Pacers could also be without Tyrese Haliburton (ankle), so we could see a lot of Jordan Nwora, who is coming off a 33-point eruption against the Hawks on Saturday.

  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: Moves to bench role Friday

    Hield will appear off the bench Friday versus the Celtics.

    Hield had started every game since joining the Pacers prior to Friday's affair, but the coaching staff has apparently decided to shake things up and will bring the sharpshooter off the bench. Hield should still play a healthy minute total and could actually be counted on more heavily for scoring in the second unit, so it remains to be seen how the role change will affect his fantasy value.

  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: Efficient outing in win

    Hield closed with 20 points (8-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, six assists and two steals over 34 minutes during Thursday's 139-123 victory over the Bucks.

    Hield bounced back from a seven-point performance last time out to notch his first 20-point outing since March 2. The sharpshooter also dished out at least six assists for just the sixth time this season and recorded multiple steals for the third time over his past four appearances. As long as Tyrese Haliburton (knee), Bennedict Mathurin (ankle) and Chris Duarte (ankle) are sidelined, Hield figures to continue garnering increased offensive usage.

  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: Available Thursday

    Hield (foot) is available Thursday against the Bucks, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    Hield was questionable ahead of Thursday's matchup but will be able to suit up despite his sore left foot. He's been held to single-digit scoring totals in two of his last five appearances and has averaged 13.0 points and 7.2 rebounds in 27.2 minutes per game during that time.

  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: May sit Thursday

    Hield (foot) is questionable for Thursday's matchup against the Bucks.

    Despite a sore left foot, Hield played 22 minutes against the Pistons on Monday, though he scored just seven points on 3-for-12 shooting. Indiana's injury report is lengthy, so fantasy managers should check in before tipoff to see who may be in line for bigger roles if Hield sits out.

  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: Available Monday

    Hield (foot) is available for Monday's game against Detroit.

    Hield was questionable for Monday's matchup due to a sore left foot, but he'll be able to suit up against the Pistons. He's scored at least 15 points in four of his last five appearances and has averaged 17.0 points and 6.4 rebounds in 29.6 minutes per game during that time.

  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: Could sit Monday

    Hield is listed as questionable for Monday's game in Detroit with a sore left foot

    Hield has yet to miss a game this season, and with the Pacers within shouting distance of the Play-In Tournament, there's some more incentive for him to push through the pain. A final call on Hield's status likely won't arrive until closer to Monday's 7 p.m. ET opening tip, but if he's forced to join Tyrese Haliburton (foot), Bennedict Mathurin (ankle) T.J. McConnell (back) and Myles Turner (back) on the sideline, extensive minutes would open up for a number of the Pacers' fringe rotation players.

  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: Status quo in win

    Hield finished Saturday's 121-115 victory over Detroit with 17 points (7-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt), eight rebounds, two assists and two steals over 27 minutes.

    Hield fell right in line with his season average of 17.3 points per game. He's been especially consistent over his last three contests, averaging 16.3 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals per contest.

  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: Posts game-high 27 points

    Hield notched 27 points (12-17 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, four assists and three steals across 34 minutes during Thursday's 110-99 loss to San Antonio.

    Hield had his shot working in this one and ended the evening with his best scoring performance since Feb. 15. The Oklahoma product also continues to showcase his quick hands on the defensive end, as he's racked up three steals in two of his last three matchups.

  • Pacers' Buddy Hield: Hits only one three

    Hield ended with 10 points (1-2 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 7-9 FT), five rebounds, four assists and one steal over 28 minutes during Tuesday's 124-122 victory over the Mavericks.

    Hield's point totals have had extreme variance recently, producing as many as 27 and as little as eight in the last five games. Hield did reach double figures Tuesday thanks to seven made free-throws, but his value comes from three-point shooting, and Hield hit just one triple. It was the only time the 30-year-old didn't make multiple threes in a game in February. Hield still leads the NBA in made three-pointers, and he is hitting them at a 42.6 percent rate.
