'I did everything that I could do': Keifer Sykes reflects on Pacers stint, hosts Indy camp

INDIANAPOLIS — Keifer Sykes knew the Pacers' season was ending. What he didn't know was that he wouldn't be a part of it. On April 5, the 5-11 guard was autographing mini basketballs and tossing them into the crowd on Fan Appreciation Night after Indiana's last home game of the season. The next day, as the Pacers prepared for...

Pacers' Keifer Sykes: Set to start

Sykes will start Monday's game against the Hawks, Scott Agness of Fieldhouse Files reports. The Pacers initially issued an incorrect lineup featuring Terry Taylor, but it will in fact be Sykes who gets the nod. Indiana will roll with Sykes, Tyrese Haliburton, Buddy Hield, Justin Anderson and Goga Bitadze.

Pacers' Keifer Sykes: Coming off bench

Sykes will come off the bench Friday against the Cavaliers. As expected, Sykes heads to the bench as the Pacers debut a backcourt of Tyrese Haliburton, Buddy Hield and Chris Duarte. Sykes will presumably occupy a much smaller role going forward, especially once Malcolm Brogdon (Achilles) is healthy.

Pacers' Keifer Sykes: In starting five Sunday

Sykes will start Sunday's game against the Cavaliers. The Pacers are already down Malcolm Brogdon (Achilles), but the team also agreed to trade Caris LeVert to the Cavs earlier Sunday, so Sykes will move into the lineup at one guard spot next to Chris Duarte. Both Sykes and Duane Washington could be set for increased roles going forward, particularly if Brogdon remains sidelined and the Pacers don't bring in another guard before the trade deadline. The only player Indiana landed in the LeVert deal is Ricky Rubio, who is out for the season due to a torn ACL.

Answering the Call(Up): How Keifer Sykes Has Made the Most of His Omicron Opportunity

On Dec. 27, the NBA broke the record for players to appear in a season. This is particularly striking considering the regular season was only approaching 40% completion at the time. This uptick in player appearances was out of necessity as 247 players entered the league’s health and safety protocols throughout the month of December.

Pacers' Keifer Sykes: Heads to bench

Sykes isn't starting Monday's game against the Pelicans, Tony East of the West Indianapolis Community News reports. Sykes will shift to a bench role after starting each of the last two games for the Pacers. Caris LeVert enters the starting five at point guard in his place while Malcolm Brogdon (Achilles) continues his rehab.

Pacers' Keifer Sykes: Comes through in clutch Thursday

Sykes chipped in 10 points (4-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt), four rebounds and three assists in 31 minutes during Thursday's 121-117 overtime win over the Warriors. Sykes was pressed into a starting role with Malcolm Brogdon (Achilles) and Caris LeVert (calf) both out of action. The rookie was relatively quiet in regulation, but he produced five points within the final two minutes of overtime to help the Pacers grab the upset victory. Both Brogdon and LeVert could return for Indiana's next game, so Sykes' late-game heroics shouldn't push him onto the fantasy radar.

Pacers' Keifer Sykes: Will come off bench

Sykes will come off the bench for Monday's game against the Clippers, Mirjam Swanson of Southern California News Group reports. Sykes started Friday's loss against Phoenix but struggled through 18 minutes of action, finishing with just four points on 2-of-6 shooting. With Malcolm Brogdon (Achilles) out again Monday, the Pacers will go with Caris LeVert at point guard while Duane Washington gets the nod at shooting guard. Sykes should still be involved off the bench, but his minutes could be limited.
