Top Chris Duarte News

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Out with ankle injury

    Duarte has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Cavaliers due a sore left ankle, Scott Agness of FieldhouseFiles.com reports.

    Despite being healthy, Duarte didn't see any minutes during Friday's win over the Kings and saw just six minutes against the Lakers on Thursday. In his absence, Bennedict Mathurin and T.J. McConnell should continuing operating as the top two guards behind Tyrese Haliburton, Andrew Nembhard and Buddy Hield.

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: DNP-CD vs. Kings

    Duarte was a DNP-Coach's Decision during Friday's win over the Kings.

    Duarte joined the starting five for four games as the Pacers dealt with injuries to Tyrese Haliburton and Andrew Nembhard. The results were solid for Duarte, as he averaged 13.3 points, 4.5 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 2.0 steals in 31.3 minutes, though he shot just 31.8 percent from deep on 5.5 attempts. Three-point shooting has been a major issue for the second-year wing. He shot 36.9 percent as a rookie but is down to 29.5 percent this season, and he's not a talented enough passer or defender to make up for that deficiency. With Haliburton returning Thursday against the Lakers, Duarte came off the bench and played just five minutes, followed by his DNP-CD on Friday. The Pacers struggled with Haliburton out, but the team is still 25-29 and firmly in the play-in mix. There's a chance Indiana will let things play out this season rather than trading off veterans for a rebuild. If that's the case, coach Rick Carlisle will likely continue to shorten his rotation, as he's been doing throughout the season. It appears Duarte may now be on the outside looking in.

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Coming off bench Thursday

    Duarte isn't starting Thursday against the Lakers, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.

    Duarte started the last four games and averaged 13.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.0 steals in 31.3 minutes per game during that time. Andrew Nembhard will reclaim his starting role during Thursday's matchup.

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Records career-high six steals

    Duarte ended Wednesday's 126-120 loss to Orlando with 16 points (4-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-8 FT), two rebounds, five assists and six steals in 39 minutes.

    Duarte has started the past two games in the absence of Tyrese Haliburton (knee, elbow) and Andrew Nembhard (illness). During Tuesday's win over Chicago, Duarte tied his career-high nine rebounds, and he followed that up one day later by setting a new career mark with six steals. The second-year wing's poor efficiency -- 34.0 percent from the field and 29.7 percent from three -- is becoming a serious concern regarding his career trajectory, but it's encouraging that he's finding other ways to contribute when called upon.

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Season high in rebounding in start

    Duarte accumulated 11 points (2-11 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and one steal in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 116-110 victory over Chicago.

    Duarte got his first start since Jan. 13, and he led the Pacers with a season-high rebound mark while finishing one board shy of a double-double. Duarte has tallied at least 10 points and five rebounds on two occasions this season.

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Starting against Chicago

    Duarte is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Bulls, Tony East of SI.com reports.

    Duarte will start for the first time since Jan. 13, when he posted seven points and two rebounds across 26 minutes in a loss to the Hawks. The former Oregon standout has played off the bench most of the season, and he's averaging 9.2 points per game across six starts in the current campaign. He will start in place of Andrew Nembhard (illness).

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Pops for 18 points off bench

    Duarte finished with 18 points (5-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 7-8 FT), two steals, one rebound and one assist in 17 minutes in Friday's 134-111 loss to the Nuggets.

    Duarte came through with his second big scoring game off the bench in less than a week, but his downward-trending playing time makes it difficult to trust him to turn in these kinds of performances moving forward. The eight trips to the free-throw line he made Friday likely aren't replicable for a lower-usage player like Duarte, who is averaging just 1.7 free-throw attempts per game for the season. And when Duarte isn't scoring, he isn't bringing much to the table on the defensive end; prior to Friday, he hadn't recorded a steal in his last 12 games, and he's averaging only 2.1 rebounds and 0.2 blocks per game in January.

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Goes for team-high 25 points

    Duarte closed Saturday's 130-112 loss to the Grizzlies with 25 points (7-15 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 7-7 FT), three rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes.

    Duarte has hit double figures in scoring in just four of his 23 appearances this season, but he's now gone for 25 or more points in two of those contests. Despite briefly exiting from Saturday's contest with a hand injury, Duarte proceeded to return to the game and finished with an excellent line while playing his most minutes since Oct. 31. Duarte's hot shooting likely played a factor in him garnering extended run, and while he should benefit from a slight uptick in playing time while Tyrese Haliburton (knee) is out, the second-year wing may see his minutes fall closer to the 20-to-25 range in most games moving forward.

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Slides back to bench

    Duarte will return to the second unit for Saturday's matchup with the Grizzlies, Tony East of SI.com reports.

    Duarte saw a spot start last time out with Aaron Nesmith (illness) absent, but he will return to the bench with Nesmith healthy Saturday. Duarte has failed to earn fantasy relevance since returning from injury, averaging just 4.2 points and 2.1 rebounds in 13 appearances.

  • Pacers' Chris Duarte: Sinks four threes off bench

    Duarte logged 14 points (5-10 FG, 4-5 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 117-112 win over the Celtics.

    In just his second game back from a lengthy absence due to an ankle injury, Duarte found his three-point stroke in a big way. The Pacers appear to be easing him back into action, but with rookie Andrew Nembhard struggling to make an impact as the starting shooting guard, it may not be long before Duarte is back in the starting five.
