Malcolm Brogdon replacing Caris LeVert (protocols) in Pacers' lineup Tuesday

Indiana Pacers shooting guard Malcolm Brogdon will start on Tuesday against the Charlotte Hornets in place of Caris LeVert (health protocols).

What It Means:

Brogdon likely would have replaced Justin Holiday in the lineup if LeVert hadn't been surprisingly ruled out. Brogdon will play in 5-6 minute stints in his first game since the end of April due to a hamstring injury. Edmond Sumner (knee) and Aaron Holiday (toe) could benefit if Brogdon's conditioning is lacking.

numberFire’s models project Brogdon for 31.2 FanDuel points versus the Hornets and he has a $7,300 salary on Tuesday.
