Corey Brewer will not play on Wednesday.
He's likely just getting some rest. Brewer is not very effective in halfcourt sets, so it's hard to imagine him thriving with Kevin Love out of the picture. He's not worth drafting in most leagues. Oct 22 - 6:57 PM

Corey Brewer had five points, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, three assists and two steals as the Wolves' starting SF on Sunday.

The starting wing positions belong to Kevin Martin and Andrew Wiggins, leaving Brewer to mop up minutes with the second unit. He'll be vying with guys like Mo Williams, Zach LaVine and Chase Budinger, so you'll have to crouch to see Brewer's fantasy ceiling this season.
Oct 19 - 9:53 PM

Corey Brewer had two teeth knocked out during practice on Friday, but he's expected to be back with the team tomorrow for Saturday's practice.

With the addition of Andrew Wiggins, Brewer will have a much-reduced role with the Timberwolves this season. It's unlikely he'll be able to return to last season's averages of 12.3 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.9 steals per game, and he's not going to be worth drafting in standard leagues.

Updating a previous report, Corey Brewer is not being discussed in a deal that will send Kevin Love to Cleveland.

There wasn't much credence to the initial report, and Jon Krawczynski (a beat writer for the Timberwolves) shot down the purposed rumor. While it looks all but certain that Kevin Love is headed to Cleveland, Brewer will apparently not be joining him.

Corey Brewer is reportedly being included in a deal that would send Kevin Love to Cleveland.

This smells a lot more like a rumor than a report, but the reported deal would involve sending Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, and a 2018 first-round pick to Minnesota in exchange for Kevin Love and Corey Brewer. Wiggins can't be traded until August 23, so nothing is imminent, but Brewer would be a solid backup to LeBron James in Cleveland.

Corey Brewer decided his run wasn't over in Monday's loss to the Warriors, scoring 22 points on 10-of-13 shooting with three rebounds, five assists and two steals in 41 minutes.

Brewer's favorable schedule and big games have made him a nice pickup over the last week or two, and there's no reason the Wolves won't run him hard on Wednesday. If his stat set fits your needs, he's a solid pickup.
Apr 15 - 1:39 AM

Corey Brewer followed up his 51-point eruption with just 10 points in 30 minutes as the Wolves lost a close game in Sacramento on Sunday.

Nobody was expecting a repeat performance of Friday, and the return of Kevin Martin and Kevin Love cut into his offensive opportunities, but this still qualifies as a major disappointment. Brewer is averaging 12.2 points in 32 minutes per game this season, on an up-tempo team that favors his style of play, so he's unlikely to be any better in 2014-15.
Apr 13 - 11:47 PM

Corey Brewer came out of nowhere for a career-high 51 points on 19-of-30 from the field in a win over the Rockets on Friday, adding two boards, one assist, six steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 45 minutes.

Brewer joined Michael Jordan, Ricky Barry and Allen Iverson as the only players to score at least 50 points with six steals in a game in NBA history. He scored an unbelievable 16 of his 19 field goals from within three feet of the rim and was the main reason why the Wolves had a whopping 39 fast-break points with 27 transition points coming from Brew. Coach Rick Adelman joked after the game that Kevin Love (elbow) and Kevin Martin (foot) have been holding Brewer back and he said he didn't even know what to do with him. Brewer also has four consecutive games with four or more steals, but we don't think he'll have a streak of scoring 50 points or anything.
Apr 12 - 12:34 AM

Corey Brewer made 6-of-9 from the field for 15 points vs. the Magic on Saturday with three assists, five steals and one 3-pointer.

The Wolves are going to need offense wherever they can get it with Kevin Love (back) and Kevin Martin (foot) out, so Brewer might have to expand his role. He's predominately getting his points out of the transition game this season, so his extra chances could be a double-edged sword with a high points output while shooting the ball worse from the field. He's a lukewarm, risky add in most formats.
Apr 5 - 9:45 PM

Corey Brewer scored nine points on 4-of-8 shooting (including a three) with one steal and two blocks in 21 minutes on Monday.

The minutes are a concern but with the Wolves being one of the few teams with four games next week he'll need to really fall off before we consider a drop. It is worth noting, however, that Chase Budinger logged 27 minutes with 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting, one three, five boards, two steals and a block. The second unit got some extra run tonight and we'll have to see if there is any carryover the next time out.
Apr 1 - 1:27 AM

Corey Brewer stayed hot on Sunday, making 9-of-13 shots for 21 points, three rebounds, two assists and four steals vs. the Nets.

Brewer is shooting 46.4 percent on the season, so this hot stretch isn't a total surprise, and as usual most of his buckets came on easy transition opportunities. The Wolves score the eighth-most points in transition and Kevin Love is a prodigious outlet passer, but even with a perfect niche in the offense Brewer is just a borderline fantasy value.
Mar 30 - 8:21 PM

Corey Brewer hit 8-of-16 shots for 18 points, three rebounds, three assists and three steals in Wednesday's easy win over the Hawks.

Brewer failed to even score last Thursday against the Rockets, but has scored 14, 15 and 18 points in each of his last three games. He appears to be heating up, so give him a look if he's on waivers in your league.
Mar 27 - 1:07 AM

Corey Brewer scored 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds and no steals or blocks in Monday's loss.

Brewer fell off a cliff over the last week or so but because of the Wolves' favorable schedule he's worth watching going forward.
Mar 25 - 12:53 AM

Corey Brewer failed to score against the Rockets on Thursday with one turnover.

He missed all three shots from the field including two from downtown. Brewer came into tonight shooting just 18.2 percent from downtown since the All-Star break and coach Rick Adelman might want to ask him to sit the next couple plays out when it comes to making triples. He's a candidate to be cut in just about all leagues right now.
Mar 20 - 10:42 PM

Corey Brewer had five rebounds, three assists and two steals during Tuesday's win vs. Milwaukee, but went cold offensively with four points on 1-of-8 shooting.

Brewer's playing time is up over the past month and he's reduced Chase Budinger (two points in 10 minutes) to a strict backup in Rick Adelman's rotation. The Wolves' fantasy-playoff schedule picks up with three straight four-game weeks beginning in Week 22 (March 24-30), so if you can hang onto Brewer a while longer it should pay off.
