Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Pours in 29 in loss
Mathurin closed Wednesday's 149-136 loss to the Bucks with 29 points (11-21 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 6-9 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and two steals across 41 minutes.
With each of the Pacers' top three players (Myles Turner, Tyrese Haliburton and Buddy Hield) sitting out with injuries or illnesses, Mathurin once again took on heavy minutes and served as the centerpiece of the offense. He's now put up 55 points on 50 percent shooting from the field and 75 percent shooting from the free-throw line over the Pacers' past two games, and he supplemented the offensive output Wednesday with solid numbers in the rebounds and steals categories. Considering he's averaging 4.0 boards and 0.6 steals per game on the season, Mathurin can't be counted on to regularly contribute in either area, but he should be a strong source of points down the stretch with the likelihood that all of Turner, Haliburton and Hield continue to miss more time....

Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Puts up 26 points in loss
Mathurin ended Monday's 127-104 loss to the Mavericks with 26 points (9-19 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 6-7 FT), four rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal across 38 minutes.
Mathurin was one of the few bright spots in Indiana's blowout loss, as the rookie was the lone Pacers player to clear 20 points. With all of Tyrese Haliburton (ankle), Buddy Hield (illness) and Myles Turner (back) sitting out, Mathurin got all the usage he could handle, and he could continue to see more offensive responsibility down the stretch. The Pacers currently sit 3.5 games behind the Bulls for the final spot in the Eastern Conference Play-In Tournament, meaning all of Haliburton, Hield and Turner could be candidates to miss more time over the final two weeks if Indiana decides to pack it in for the season....

Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Offers little in loss
Mathurin contributed four points (2-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 24 minutes during Saturday's 143-130 loss to the Hawks.
Outside of Chris Duarte, Mathurin was the only other Pacer not to score in double digits Saturday. Despite rolling with the opening unit, Mathurin was barely visible, turning in another underwhelming performance. He continues to play through an ongoing ankle injury, and perhaps sitting out Saturday would have been a better option. He remains a viable asset, even in 12-team formats, although we saw here that when his shot isn't falling, he has very little else to fall back on.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Good to go Saturday

After a poor two-point outing against the Celtics on Friday, there was a chance the rookie would rest his sore ankle. However, Mathurin will give it a go Saturday, hoping to bounce back.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Expected to play
Mathurin (rest) is expected to play in Saturday's game against the Hawks, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.
There was a chance the rookie would rest his ankle during the second game of the back-to-back set, but he'll likely see the floor. Mathurin's coming off a terrible performance in Friday's loss to the Celtics, where he posted just two points, two assists and one rebound in 25 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Questionable at Atlanta
Mathurin is questionable for Saturday's tilt against the Hawks due to right ankle sprain injury management.
Mathurin struggled during Friday's loss to the Celtics, posting just two points, two assists and one rebound in 25 minutes. He could rest on the second night of the back-to-back along with Tyrese Haliburton (rest), Chris Duarte (ankle) and Myles Turner (back), who are also all questionable.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Efficient in return
Mathurin (ankle) amassed 18 points (7-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 30 minutes during Monday's 115-109 loss to the Hornets.
Head coach Rick Carlisle inserted Mathurin in the starting five after missing the Pacers' previous four games, and the rookie didn't exhibit any rust while taking on a healthy minutes load. The Pacers are running low on bodies with Tyrese Haliburton (knee) and Chris Duarte (ankle) having both missed multiple games, so Mathurin looks as though he could be in store for an expanded role on offense in the contests to come now that he's moved past his own injury....

In a corresponding move, Jordan Nwora will shift to a bench role.... See More ... See Less
Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Cleared for action
Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle said Mathurin (ankle) will play Monday against the Hornets, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.
Mathurin participated in the team's morning shootaround and has been cleared to return following a four-game absence due to an ankle injury. It's unclear how many minutes he'll play in his first game since March 9, but his presence will likely mean fewer minutes for Jordan Nwora. Before his injury, Mathurin had scored in double figures in eight of his previous 10 appearances, averaging 15.5 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.1 steals-plus-blocks in 28.3 minutes during that stretch....

Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Participates in shootaround
Mathurin (ankle) remains questionable for Monday's game against in Charlotte, but he participated in Indiana's morning shootaround, Jeremiah Johnson of Bally Sports Indiana reports.
Mathurin is certainly trending in the right direction and could return to action following a four-game absence, but his official availability likely won't be known until closer to the 7:00 p.m. ET tipoff. His potential return would likely impact Jordan Nwora's minutes.... See More ... See Less

Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Ruled out Thursday
Mathurin (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Bucks, Tony East of SI.com reports.
Mathurin will miss a third consecutive game and doesn't yet have a clear timetable to return, but coach Rick Carlisle said Thursday that the 20-year-old is doing better and could travel with the Pacers for their road trip next week.

Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Likely to sit Thursday
Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle said Monday that Mathurin (ankle) is "making some real positive strides with his rehab," but the coach declined to offer a timeline for the rookie to rejoin the lineup, Tony East of SI.com reports. "The hope is that he won't be out for long," Carlisle added.
Mathurin missed his second straight game in Monday's 117-97 loss to the Pistons while he recovers from the right ankle sprain he sustained in last Thursday's win over Houston. Given that Mathurin didn't make the trip with the Pacers to Detroit on Monday, he appears unlikely to be available for the final game of the road trip Thursday in Milwaukee. However, the Pacers have yet to provide an official update on his status for that contest.... See More ... See Less

Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle said after Thursday's 134-125 loss to the Rockets that he's not expecting Mathurin (ankle) to be available Saturday or Monday in Detroit, Scott Agness of FieldhouseFiles.com reports.
Carlisle didn't provide much clarity regarding the severity of the sprained right ankle Mathurin sustained early in Thursday's contest, but the rookie wing looks as though he'll miss at least a couple of games. Assuming Mathurin ends up sitting out the Detroit series, Andrew Nembhard, Chris Duarte and T.J. McConnell could all be in store for expanded playing time.... See More ... See Less
