Corey Brewer finished with four points and seven assists over 29 minutes in Friday's 99-86 win against Indiana.
Brewer hit just 2-of-6 from the field, including 0-of-2 from behind the 3-point line, while adding two steals. He is averaging 20.3 minutes per game over his past three outings, but he is posting just 3.7 points, 4.0 rebound and 1.3 steals per game during the span. Despite the fact he was in the starting five on Friday, he is only a low-end asset in the deepest of fantasy leagues while starting for Brandon Ingram (ankle). He can be left to the waiver wire in most formats. Jan 20 - 2:07 AM

Corey Brewer played 31 minutes off the bench on Sunday, posting nine points on 4-of-8 shooting, six rebounds, four assists, one block and one 3-pointer.

Brewer is embodying the concept of 'revenge games' -- in his past two games vs. Houston, he's averaging 15.0 points, 1.5 triples, 5.5 boards, 2.5 assists and 1.5 steals. He's been nowhere near holding fantasy value in L.A.'s first 35 games, though, and he belongs on the wire.

The Lakers' three-game losing streak ended in Houston on Wednesday, with Corey Brewer erupting for a season-high 21 points, five rebounds, three steals, two 3-pointers and one assist vs. his former team.

Brewer nailed 7-of-9 field goals and 5-of-7 free throws in 25 minutes tonight, before eventually fouling out with 1:02 left in the game. He took full advantage of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (personal) being unavailable, and said explicitly after the game that he was out for revenge: "It feels amazing. [The Rockets] didn't want me, so why not come win?" With KCP due back on Friday, however, Brewer's big game doesn't have lasting implications.

Corey Brewer failed to score in 11 minutes off the bench on Sunday, contributing two steals and one assist in a loss to the Rockets.

Brewer was playing in his 300th consecutive game, and he's an unheralded iron-man in the NBA. That might encourage coach Luke Walton to give him token minutes most nights, but it's not enough for Brewer to help fantasy owners.

Corey Brewer scored a season-high 13 points with one rebound, one steal and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes against the Suns on Monday.

Coach Luke Walton is back to playing Brewer over Josh Hart, but that probably won't be the case all year.
Tue, Nov 14, 2017 12:22:00 AM

Corey Brewer headed back to the Lakers' bench on Sunday, where he finished with two points and two rebounds in nine minutes.

Brewer was a placeholder for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who returned from a suspension tonight. The 10-year veteran doesn't have any fantasy appeal.
Mon, Oct 23, 2017 12:54:00 AM

Corey Brewer moved into the starting lineup against the Suns on Friday, finishing with five points, two rebounds, two assists and three steals in 33 minutes.

His energy is his calling card and he brought it on the defensive end tonight. However, with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope returning from his suspension, Brewer is only going to get a handful of minutes going forward.

Corey Brewer will start against the Suns on Friday, moving Luol Deng to the bench.

Luke Walton said a change was coming, but this isn't one that fantasy owners will be excited about. Both Brewer and Deng will be irrelevant when Kentavious Caldwell-Pope returns from his suspension.

Corey Brewer scored two points with three rebounds in 16 minutes against the Clippers on Thursday.

The Lakers need some help on the wing with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope out for the first two, so it's possible Brewer loses most of his minutes after Friday.

Corey Brewer is focused primarily on improving his perimeter shooting this offseason, according to Mark Medina of the O.C. Register.

"It’s a work in progress," Brewer said of his shooting. "I feel like by the time the season starts next year, I’ll be ready to go." The 31-year-old veteran hasn't shot better than 29.6 percent from deep since 2010-11, despite recent seasons with a Rockets team that emphasized 3-pointers, so a perimeter renaissance is doubtful. It's hard to envision him having a fantasy impact in L.A.
Wed, Jul 26, 2017 10:23:00 PM

Corey Brewer scored five points with one rebound, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday.

He started the second half because Brandon Ingram (knee) had a restriction on his minutes. Brewer could get minutes on Friday, but his upside isn't worth stashing in almost any league.
Thu, Apr 6, 2017 12:03:00 AM

Corey Brewer returned to the bench on Saturday vs. the Clippers and scored six points with three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 10 minutes.

Brandon Ingram (knee) looked healthy in his return with 18 points, so Brewer will be irrelevant the rest of the way if the rookie holds up.
Sat, Apr 1, 2017 07:09:00 PM

Corey Brewer will move to the bench with Brandon Ingram back in the starting lineup.

After playing just 18 minutes in the starting lineup on Thursday, Brewer might be falling all the way out all the rotation. David Nwaba has played well enough to be earn more minutes and could still hit the 24-minute mark.
Sat, Apr 1, 2017 02:42:00 PM

Corey Brewer will remain in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against Washington, with Brandon Ingram (knee) unavailable.

Brewer put up three points, two boards, one assist, one steal, one triple and two blocks through 19 minutes as a starter his last time out, so he can't be considered a viable target in most leagues.
Tue, Mar 28, 2017 02:16:00 PM

Corey Brewer started Sunday's game in place of Brandon Ingram (right knee), finishing with three points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one 3-pointer and two blocks in 19 minutes.

Brewer might have played more if the game were close, but the veteran got a long rest with the score out of hand in the second half. He's not a fantasy option, even if Ingram misses more games.
