Corey Brewer hit 6-of-13 shots and two 3-pointers for 20 points, six rebounds, three assists and a steal in Wednesday's loss to the Warriors.
This was a garbage-time special and he was helped by Josh Smith's early ejection. Make no mistake, Brewer was a big part of a somewhat impressive comeback waged by the Rockets, but they were never in the game and it truly was a meaningless stat line. Don't take the bait and think this will become a regular occurrence. Jan 22 - 1:41 AM

Corey Brewer has received a flop warning from the league for his flop against Andre Iguodala during Saturday's game.

The flop was obvious, and his next violation will result in a $5,000 fine. Click the link below if you'd like to see the flop for yourself.

Corey Brewer scored just seven points on Monday, hitting 3-of-6 shots (including a three) with one rebound and two assists in 19 minutes off the bench.

With Houston's secondary players like Josh Smith and Donatas Motiejunas getting 26-27 minutes a piece, the pie shrunk and Brewer was the loser. The steals and threes specialist looks a lot like last year's version -- a low-end value best suited for 14-team leagues.
Jan 6 - 12:11 AM

Corey Brewer scored 12 points on 4-of-12 shooting (no threes) with two rebounds and one assist in 27 minutes off the bench in Friday's blowout loss.

Brewer cooled off on Wednesday and though owners shouldn't overvalue the impact of a blowout game like this, he has a very small margin for error in his new digs. The good news is, however, that the Rockets appear to be willing to deploy him in a 25 mpg role and with that comes a chance at late-round value.
Jan 3 - 1:16 AM

Corey Brewer finally cooled off on Wednesday, hitting just 2-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for five points, three rebounds and two assists.

It was going to be very tough for him to keep up the amazing pace he was on off the Rockets bench, and he was due for an off night. We're not ready to write him off just yet, but it won't be easy for him to keep playing at such a high level as long as he's coming off the bench behind guys like Trevor Ariza and James Harden.

Corey Brewer played 28 minutes off the bench on Monday, scoring 15 points on 5-of-13 shooting (including two threes) with three assists, two steals and one block.

Brewer doesn't look like a bit player so far in Houston and while he won't handle the rock as much as he was earlier this year, he could have the low-end value he showed at times in past Minnesota campaigns. Owners in 12-team leagues should feel free to give him a look.

Corey Brewer scored a season-high 25 points (8-of-11 FGs) off the Rockets bench in Sunday's road loss, while tying his career-high with six 3-pointers in a mere 24 minutes of action.

Brewer is now averaging 16.7 points on 58.1 percent shooting, 3.7 triples, 2.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.7 steals and 0.7 blocks in three games with Houston. He's averaging 23 minutes off the bench and his current numbers appear unsustainable (he had eight 3s all season with the Wolves), but he's worth a speculative pickup if you're in need of scoring, 3-pointers and steals.

Corey Brewer was terrific in his first game with the Rockets with 12 points, four rebounds, four assists, five steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

This came out of nowhere and there's a good chance this will be his best game with the Rockets all season. It actually had nothing to do with garbage time and he had most of his work done in the first half. Brewer is not worth owning in standard leagues and will need to stay very hot to be worth a look.

Corey Brewer and Alexey Shved are expected to be available on Monday against the Blazers.

Both players were recently traded to the Rockets and were unavailable on Saturday, but both guys should be ready if called upon on Monday. Brewer receiving meaningful minutes and a rotation role is expected, while Shved will likely sit at the end of the bench.

Timberwolves President Flip Saunders said he decided to trade Corey Brewer after learning the swingman would waive his player option for next season.

Additionally, the development of sophomore Shabazz Muhammad allowed the team to pursue a deal that opened up minutes on the wing. Muhammad is the biggest winner of the trade from a fantasy standpoint and should be owned in all leagues at this point.

Corey Brewer will not be active for Saturday's game against the Hawks.

He was just recently traded to the Rockets from Minnesota, but he wasn't cleared in time for this contest. However, Brewer lost a lot of fantasy value in this trade, and won't see many minutes as long as Trevor Ariza and James Harden are healthy. Owners in standard leagues can move on.

Corey Brewer and Alexey Shved missed shootaround on Saturday, but they are expected to be available against the Hawks.

Brewer will likely be used off of the bench in relief of James Harden and Trevor Ariza, so he won't see a lot of minutes. Brewer lost a lot of value with this trade, and owners in standard leagues can move on. Additionally, Shved likely won't be in the rotation at all, and can be cut across the board.

Corey Brewer has been traded to the Rockets for Troy Daniels, Ronny Turiaf, two second-round picks and cash.

This has been in the works for a few days and was expected to get done today. Brewer will come off the bench to help a very thin second unit for the Rockets right now. He's a great fit in reality, but it's certainly not going to translate to solid fantasy value. Cut him in most leagues. Meanwhile, Shabazz Muhammad will get some extra minutes and is worth a look, especially in points leagues.

The Rockets, Clippers, Cavaliers, and Heat are all in pursuit of a trade that would net them Corey Brewer.

Flip Saunders is reportedly trying to get a first-rounder in exchange for Brewer, but for Brewer, none of these destinations can been seen as a positive from a fantasy perspective. It seems to be only a matter of time until he is dealt, so owners may want to try selling high. Shabazz Muhammad and Chase Budinger would be the primary beneficiaries if/when Brewer is sent elsewhere.

Corey Brewer could be traded to the Rockets before the weekend.

He would go from a guy seeing around 30 minutes to being a backup to two high-minute guys in Trevor Ariza and James Harden. Brewer would be a great fit, but the vast majority of his offense would have to come in transition. If he's on your team and Marcus Smart is out there, it makes sense to switch them and think ahead. Shabazz Muhammad is also an option, but it better suited for points leagues. Ariza would not be affected much. Harden wouldn't either, but you knew that.
