Hoosiers in the NBA: Jackson-Davis surging as regular season nears completion - Inside the Hall

Under 10 games remain in the NBA regular season and it’s time for our fourth “Hoosiers in the NBA” update.

Here’s an updated look at how each of the seven Hoosiers in the NBA are performing through more than 70 games of the 2023-24 campaign:

Eric Gordon – Phoenix

2023-24 stats (63 games): 11.4 points, 2.1 assists, 1.9 rebounds, .9 steals in 28.4 minutes per game

Over the last 10 games, Gordon is shooting a stellar 41.3 percent on 3s in 22.4 minutes per game. He’s shooting 38.4 percent on 3s for the season and 80 percent from the free throw line.

A 15-year NBA veteran, the 6-foot-3 Gordon is still valuable as a rotation piece who can space the floor and provide veteran leadership on and off the floor.

Playoff outlook: The Suns are currently tied with New Orleans for sixth in the Western Conference. Securing at least the sixth seed would keep Phoenix out of the play-in games for the seventh or eighth seed.

O.G. Anunoby – New York

2023-24 stats (44 games): 14.9 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.3 steals in 34 minutes per game

Injuries have derailed Anunoby’s season. He returned on March 12 after an absence of more than a month but played just three games before going back on the shelf as his elbow injury flared up.

According to Tom Thibodeau, there’s currently no timetable for Anunoby to return to the lineup.

“You deal with it day-to-day,” the Knicks coach recently told reporters. “When he’s strong enough, he gets out there.”

Playoff outlook: The Knicks are currently the No. 5 seed in the Eastern Conference, just a half-game behind Orlando for fourth and a game behind Cleveland for third.

Victor Oladipo – Free Agent

2023-24 stats (0 games): Has not played due to injury

Oladipo is out of the NBA after being waived in early February by Memphis.

Due to his injury history, Oladipo will likely be looking at a non-guaranteed deal next season as he tries to work his way back into the league.

Thomas Bryant – Miami

2023-24 stats (37 games): 5.4 points, 3.5 rebounds in 11.3 minutes per game

Bryant recently recorded his first double-double of the season in a 142-82 win against Portland on March 29.

The 6-foot-10 big man finished with 26 points, 12 rebounds, two blocked shots, two steals and one assist in 22 minutes off the bench in the victory.

Over his last 10 games, Bryant has averaged 9.1 points and 5.2 rebounds in 14.3 minutes per game.

Playoff outlook: The Heat, winners of three straight, are currently tied…
