Lance Stephenson made 1-of-5 from the field for four points with two rebounds, two assists and no turnovers in 20 minutes against the Blazers on Friday. He fired away with 19 shots against the Nets on Wednesday, but coach Nate McMillan reined him in for this game. Stephenson is still going to be a primary ball handler for the second unit and the Pacers need him to play over 23 minutes when garbage time isn't a factor, so he's a decent guy to own in standard leagues.

Lance Stephenson launched 19 shots in 24 minutes on Wednesday, making six of them to finish with 16 points, three assists, one rebound, one steal and one block. Lance was ice-cold to begin the game, but of course he didn't let that impact his usage rate. He made two 3-pointers tonight and could carve out low-end value, but as usual he's much more appealing in points leagues.

Lance Stephenson scored 17 points off the bench against the Bucks on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, six assists, two steals and three 3-pointers. With the Pacers currently gutted on the wing, Stephenson is poised to have a solidified role. He was on fire at the end of the first half tonight with the Pacers' final eight points before recess. He also handled the ball a lot and created most of the offense in the second unit. He'll be coming off the bench, but there's a decent chance he'll be closing out games and getting minutes in the upper 20s. He's a name to watch as a last-round flier.

Lance Stephenson is 100 percent healthy after battling ankle and knee issues late in the 2016-17 season. Coach Nate McMillan plans to use Stephenson as the sixth man, but added that he could still see starter minutes. "I hope he can establish [that role]," McMillan said. "A sixth man is like a starter, and he can be a guy who can do a lot of things with that second group with his ability to handle the ball, score the ball. He's an unselfish player." Stephenson averaged 7.2 points, 4.2 assists and 4.0 rebounds in six games with the Pacers last season and is likely looking at a similar role with minutes in the 20s.

Nate McMillan intends to use Lance Stephenson as a sixth man for the Pacers this season, according to Scott Agness of Vigilant Sports. Stephenson will help backup Darren Collison and Victor Oladipo in Indiana this season, but it's unlikely he'll be able to establish himself as a standard league contributor in fantasy hoops as a member of the second unit with the Pacers.

Lance Stephenson will not be a primary ball handler for the Pacers next season. There was talk back in June that Pacers' president of basketball operations, Kevin Pritchard, was tinkering with the idea of utilizing Stephenson at point guard, but that was before Darren Collison, Victor Oladipo and Cory Joseph were on the roster. Born Ready might be able to flirt with minutes in the 20s next season, particularly if Rodney Stuckey isn't retained, but he won't be on the floor enough to make an impact in fantasy hoops.
