Brandon Bass played just five minutes with two rebounds and one foul against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

He was picking up steam last weekend, but the Clippers have gone small 1-4 perhaps more than any team in the NBA in the last two. Bass' minutes will depend on the matchup, which obviously isn't valuable for a short-term guy. He likely won't be used much on Friday against the Kings.
Jan 5 - 1:42 AM

Brandon Bass scored a season-high 18 points with six rebounds and one block in 24 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

While he did play all 12 minutes in the fourth, this wasn't a garbage time special with just two points in that frame. He's been somewhat sneaky over his last five, averaging 10.4 points, 3.8 boards, 1.0 assists, 0.4 blocks and 0.4 steals. The Clippers haven't really found an answer at power forward and these 24 minutes were a season high, so maybe coach Doc Rivers leans on Bass a little more. He's only worth a look in deep league.
Jan 1 - 12:07 AM

Brandon Bass contributed five points, four rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 13 minutes off the bench vs. OKC on Wednesday.

It doesn't look like much but this is easily Bass' biggest regular-season contribution since joining the Clippers. He looked good in a bench unit that included Marreese Speights and should see his role increase after a few DNPs to start the season, but Bass still isn't worth owning outside of the deepest leagues.

Brandon Bass played two minutes in his season debut on Sunday.

The Clippers have the luxury of depth this season, and Doc Rivers has opted to use Marreese Speights as his backup center with plenty of small lineups. We should see Bass in the rotation at some point, but there's obviously no incentive to own him in fantasy.

Brandon Bass double-doubled in 37 minutes as a fill-in starter on Monday, scoring 12 points with 10 rebounds, two assists and one steal.

The Clippers rested Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan tonight, so let's keep this performance in perspective. Bass, an 11-year veteran, hasn't averaged more than 28 minutes in the past four seasons and it would take an injury to Griffin for him to approach that playing time this year. He'll go undrafted in nearly all leagues.

The Clippers and Brandon Bass agreed on a one-year deal.

The Clippers get some extra depth to their power forward spot, which is interesting due to Blake Griffin's leg possibly being an issue. Bass should get some minutes in the second unit, but he won't have much fantasy value.

Unrestricted free agent Brandon Bass is on the Wolves' radar.

The Wolves just let Greg Smith go, so they'll be looking for some bench depth. If Kevin Garnett decides not to come back and the Wolves can't bring in another big man, Bass could be looking at minutes. Given the durability of Karl-Antohny Towns and Gorgui Dieng last year, there's not much to like about Bass' fantasy value with Minnesota.

Brandon Bass will turn down his player option for the 2016-17 season.

This will make him an unrestricted free agent on July 1. He was due to make just over $3.1 million, but he should be able to do better with the rising salary cap. While it's still possible that Bass could re-sign with the Lakers, don't be surprised if tries to join a contender.
Sat, Jun 18, 2016 12:26:00 PM

Brandon Bass will reportedly decline to pickup his player option for the 2016-17 season.

Bass is bound for unrestricted free agency, which is far from surprising given that he was not a great fit with the rebuilding Lakers. Bass will likely try and sign a deal to be a reserve with a contender this offseason, which will render him a non-option in most leagues.

Brandon Bass was a healthy DNP-CD on Sunday.

Fantasy owners should cut the line on Bass, who will likely decline his $3.1 million player option for the 2016-17 season. The 30-year-old PF shot a career-high 54.9 percent from the field this year, and he's always been a terrific FT shooter at 83.9 percent. Ryan Kelly and Larry Nance gain a bit in his absence, but the biggest winner is Julius Randle.

Brandon Bass matched his season high with 18 points vs. the Grizzlies on Tuesday, adding six boards, one assist and two steals in 27 minutes.

He was 7-of-10 from the field and once again played better than Roy Hibbert. Bass has a player option for next season, so he certainly has some motivation to play well down the stretch in case he wants to look for a bigger deal. He's still only on the radar in deeper leagues for now.
Wed, Mar 23, 2016 01:36:00 AM

Brandon Bass hasn't decided if he will exercise his player option for next season.

"I don’t know what I’m going to do," Bass said. "I’m a special type of player and person to be around this type of group. I think I can help develop these young guys. I want them to be successful. I would love to see them grow and would love it to be here. But you never know what happens." Bass has taken on a larger role since the break and is averaging 10.2 points, 4.8 boards and 1.1 blocks in that span, so he's doing enough to help out owners in deeper leagues.

Brandon Bass (eye) logged 24 minutes off the bench in his return from a one-game absence on Friday, tallying 10 points, six rebounds and one block.

Bass is the exact opposite of exciting, but he also doesn't really hurt you anywhere. Since the All-Star break, he's registered averages of 10.2 points, 4.8 boards, 1.1 blocks and just 0.6 turnovers per contest on 60.5 percent shooting from the field and 81.6 percent from the stripe. He's worth owning as a low-end big in deep leagues.

Brandon Bass (eye) will play against the Suns on Friday.

He should be good to go after putting in a full practice on Thursday. Bass should see minutes in the mid 20s, which takes minutes from Tarik Black and Robert Sacre.
