The Rockets will send Corey Brewer and a first-round pick to the Lakers in exchange for Lou Williams.
The Lakers are clearly rebuilding and probably have no use for Brewer, as this trade was all about securing another first-round pick. If Brewer isn't waived by the Lakers, he will provide some depth off the bench behind Brandon Ingram. He's shooting 23.4 percent from deep this season and is not a fantasy pickup. With Williams gone, it makes sense for fantasy owners to add Jordan Clarkson. D'Angelo Russell will also get a nice bump. Feb 21 - 7:45 PM

Date:

Corey Brewer started the second half on Wednesday following Pat Beverley's exit with a groin injury.

Brewer finished with four points, two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 27 minutes tonight. He might get a boost if Bev's injury doesn't heal during the break, but that's not a given. Even without Beverley to start the season, Brewer did nothing to recommend himself outside of very deep leagues.
Feb 15 - 11:33 PM

Corey Brewer scored two points in the starting lineup against the Bucks on Wednesday, adding four rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block in 18 minutes.

That's actually a pretty decent line in limited minutes. He'll be moving to the bench once Ryan Anderson (illness) is healthy enough to start. There's little reason to add Brewer right now with their next game coming on Friday against the Warriors.
Jan 18 - 11:56 PM

Corey Brewer started in place of Ryan Anderson (illness) Tuesday but hit just 2-of-5 shots (both 3-pointers) for eight points, one rebound, one assist and two steals in 26 minutes.

He's been awful as a starter (or otherwise) this season and was averaging just 3.8 points in his six previous starts. Anderson should be back soon, so Brewer's time as a starter should be short lived.
Jan 17 - 10:01 PM

Corey Brewer will start in place of Ryan Anderson (illness) on Tuesday night vs. Miami.

Brewer has started six games for the Rockets this season; however, his stats in those starts are not encouraging. He is averaging 3.8 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 18.6 minutes over those six contests. Brewer's overall numbers are down in 2016-17. He is averaging 4.1 points and has scored more than 10 points just once all season. He should see 20-plus minutes tonight but is still a risky play even as DFS punt.
Jan 17 - 6:06 PM

Corey Brewer played 18 minutes on Sunday without recording a single point, steal, block or 3-pointer.

Brewer scored 15 points vs. the Hornets on Tuesday, but that was easily his season-high and it was just the third time he's cracked double-digits. He's a fantasy afterthought while James Harden, Trevor Ariza, Sam Dekker and Eric Gordon are all healthy.
Jan 15 - 9:09 PM

Corey Brewer scored six points with four rebounds and one 3-pointer in 17 minutes against the Grizzlies on Friday.

If you were using Brewer while Eric Gordon was out, go ahead and cut him.
Jan 14 - 1:25 AM

Corey Brewer played 27 minutes off Houston's bench on Wednesday, scoring nine points on 4-of-9 shooting with one 3-pointer, two boards, one assist, one steal and one block.

Eric Gordon (sprained left big toe) wasn't available tonight, so there were more bench minutes available for Houston's wing players. Gordon wasn't traveling for this game and isn't a lock to play on Friday, but even if he sits Brewer isn't a great streaming option vs. the Grizzlies' defense.
Jan 11 - 11:59 PM

Corey Brewer hit 7-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points, five rebounds and a steal off the bench on Tuesday.

Before you get excited, keep in mind that Brewer had scored a grand total of eight points over his last four games and that Eric Gordon sat this one out with sprained left toe. If Gordon (day-to-day) doesn't miss any more time, Brewer should fade away just as quickly as he arrived tonight.
Jan 10 - 11:27 PM

Corey Brewer did not score off the bench in 16 minutes with two rebounds and three assists.

He won't be playing much while Patrick Beverley is in the lineup. Brewer shouldn't have been added in most leagues.
Jan 6 - 9:22 PM

Corey Brewer is starting again on Monday vs. the Wizards.

Pat Beverley (wrist) will miss his second straight game, but he remains day-to-day. Brewer scored seven points in a start with four rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday, so fantasy owners should be able to do better.
Jan 2 - 7:50 PM

Corey Brewer scored seven points in a start with four rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday.

He just got a spot start for Pat Beverley (wrist) tonight. There's no word of the Rockets saying Beverley needs to be evaluated any further, so leave Brewer on the wire in most leagues.
Sat, Dec 31, 2016 11:02:00 PM

Corey Brewer will start on Saturday against the Clippers.

With Patrick Beverley (wrist) out, Brewer is set to start at the two while James Harden runs the point. In his last start, Brewer played 20 minutes and scored eight points on 3-of-6 shooting.
Sat, Dec 31, 2016 07:26:00 PM

Corey Brewer started with Patrick Beverley in street clothes on Tuesday and hit 3-of-6 shots and two 3-pointers for eight points, three rebounds and a steal.

Beverley is expected back from his thigh injury on Friday, meaning Brewer should return to the bench, and fantasy obscurity, very soon. Ignore him.
Tue, Dec 27, 2016 11:58:00 PM

Corey Brewer will move into the starting five for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks, with Patrick Beverley (thigh) unavailable.

This will be Brewer's third start this season, but it's tough to get too excited here. In his previous three starts, Brewer owns meager averages of 1.3 points, 1.7 boards, 1.0 assist and not much else on 10.0 percent shooting.
