Indiana Pacers Fantasy Spin

Bojan Bogdanovic scored a season-high 31 points against the Heat on Saturday during a 95-88 win, adding seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes. The Pacers needed this one badly to get their first win since the Victor Oladipo injury. Bogdanovic was rolling for the second most points he's scored in his career (44 in 2016). In the five games without Vic, Bogdanovic averaged 20.0 points, 4.2 boards, 1.6 dimes and 2.0 treys on a 49/37/94 shooting line. The scoring could be legit and he should be owned in standard leagues.

New Orleans Pelicans Fantasy Spin

Elfrid Payton (right ankle sprain) will not play vs. the Pacers on Monday. Frank Jackson has been starting in Payton's absence and is coming off a career-high 25 points, though he's offered little beyond scoring. Payton was really struggling prior to his injury, and there's no clear return date, so fantasy owners in 'win-now' mode should look elsewhere for value.
