Duane Washington (hip) ruled out Monday for Pacers

Indiana Pacers shooting guard Duane Washington Jr. (hip) has been ruled out for Monday versus the Atlanta Hawks.

What It Means:

Washington was previously considered questionable, but he will be out for a second straight game. The Pacers will also remain without Malcolm Brogdon (rest), Chris Duarte (toe), and T.J. McConnell (wrist), so Lance Stephenson, Terry Taylor, and Keifer Sykes could take on additional minutes. The offense should mostly run through Tyrese Haliburton and Buddy Hield.

numberFire’s models project Haliburton for 37.3 minutes and 40.0 FanDuel points, and he has a $7,500 salary on Monday’s nine-game slate. Hield ($6,200) is projected for 35.4 minutes and 30.8 FanDuel points.
