2022 Fantasy Outlook
On Draft night, it looked as though Mathurin would be joining a fairly crowded backcourt, but the Pacers swiftly shipping Malcolm Brogdon to Boston seemingly clears the way for the No. 6 overall pick to start alongside Tyrese Haliburton. If the Pacers end up moving one or both of Myles Turner and Buddy Hield -- a distinct possibility -- then Mathurin would have an even clearer path to elevated usage in Year 1. The Arizona product was one of the standouts of Summer League, where he cobbled together averages of 19.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.7 made threes in just 22.4 minutes per game (three appearances). A very good athlete with prototypical size, Mathurin should be able to adapt well to the NBA game, and playing alongside a strong playmaker in Haliburton will only ease the transition. Like any rookie guard, Mathurin will have to prove that he's not a drag on field goal percentage, and ideally, his frame and aggressiveness would translate to a higher steal rate. But as long as Mathurin can shoot the ball even relatively efficiently, he'll be in an excellent position to play a ton of minutes and push for a top-100 finish. Read Past Outlooks

Summer League over as precaution

July 14, 2022
Mathurin will not appear in the remaining Summer League contests due to a sore left big toe.
Mathurin made his mark on the three Summer League contests he appeared in, racking up 19.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals per game. The rookie will rest his toe to ensure it doesn't turn into anything worse and will likely be ready to go when training camp kicks off.
