Josh McRoberts' Playing Time Increasing

Indiana Pacers big man Josh McRoberts has started to see his minutes rise lately. In the month of December, he's playing 27.3 minutes a game and he's averaging 12 points, 6.7 rebounds, 4.7 assists, and 1.7 blocks in that three-game stretch.

The Breakdown
In the preseason, it was thought that Tyler Hansbrough would get the bigger share of the playing time but Tyler is barely getting off the bench. McRoberts is seeing good minutes, he's been productive, and doesn't appear to have anyone threatening him for playing time now. In standard-sized leagues, Josh is a player fantasy owners should take a serious look at if you're in need of a big man. Even before his recent outburst, he was sitting just outside our top 150 because the Pacers have played the fewest games in the league. He's owned in just 3% of leagues at this time, but that number is sure to increase in the coming days.
