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. Dec 20 - 6:20 PM

Date:

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.
Dec 20 - 12:01 PM

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.
Dec 19 - 2:36 PM

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.
Dec 19 - 10:29 AM

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.
Dec 18 - 8:05 PM

Corey Brewer is back on the trade block with the Rockets and Cavs as the frontrunners to acquire him.

The Wolves should be getting their banged-up players back soon, so they don't need Brewer quite as much. He's playing around 32 minutes per game for the Wolves right now, so the team would look to guys like Shabazz Muhammad and Chase Budinger to help out. Brewer owners should plan on him losing a ton of fantasy value.

Dec 17 - 8:55 PM

Corey Brewer hit just 2-of-7 shots for four points, four rebounds, an assist and a steal in 30 minutes.

Brewer really hurt his owners tonight and Shabazz Muhammad would have been a better daily play in hindsight. He's coming off two really strong games and owners should still give him consideration in starting lineups.
Dec 16 - 9:56 PM

The Rockets are reportedly still trying find a deal that would net them Corey Brewer, though nothing is imminent.

The Rockets' coaching staff likes what Brewer can offer to the team, but if he did land in Houston, his value would go in the tank. However, with nothing being imminent, this is just something to note for now.
Dec 16 - 5:25 PM

Corey Brewer scored 10 points and set a new career high with nine assists vs. the Lakers on Sunday, adding two 3-pointers, six rebounds and two steals in just 32 minutes.

The Lakers' porous defense deserves some credit for Brewer's assist total, and he's been handling the ball far more than usual with Ricky Rubio (ankle) and Mo Williams (back) both on the sidelines. Brewer is essentially a steals specialist with enough upside to merit ownership in 12-team leagues, especially while Kevin Martin is on the sidelines.
Dec 14 - 10:56 PM

Corey Brewer scored six points on 3-of-8 shooting with five rebounds, eight assists, four steals, one block and six turnovers in Friday's loss.

Brewer's production may be a little funky from night to night but he's a must-start player until further notice.
Dec 13 - 1:34 AM

Corey Brewer admitted that it's not easy playing on a rebuilding team like the Timberwolves.

Brewer has been a stabilizing veteran presence on the injury-riddled Timberwolves, but he admitted on Wednesday that is hasn't been easy. "It’s tough for me, I’m not going to lie," Brewer said. "When I came back here, I wasn’t expecting this, to rebuild again. It comes with the territory. It’s business." The veteran is averaging 11.6 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 3.0 steals, 0.6 blocks, and 0.6 three-pointers over his last five games and is a must-start fantasy option while Kevin Martin is out.
Dec 11 - 10:30 AM

Corey Brewer torched the Blazers for 19 points, eight rebounds, five assists, five steals and a 3-pointer on 4-of-11 shooting on Wednesday.

He hit 10-of-10 free throws in his best game of the season and is averaging 11.6 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 3.0 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.6 3-pointers over his last five games. He's also had five steals in each of his last two, and along with Andrew Wiggins, is nearly a must-start for as long as Kevin Martin is out.
Dec 11 - 12:26 AM

Corey Brewer had a productive night with 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting (no threes) with four rebounds, four assists and five steals in Monday's loss to the Warriors.

Brewer hasn't been as good as owners hoped he would be following the Ricky Rubio injury, but he has picked it up since Friday and might be available in your standard 12-team format. With the Wolves banged up and a big window for him to be productive in, he should be owned in most formats.
Dec 9 - 1:39 AM

Corey Brewer slowed down during a 123-101 loss to the Spurs on Saturday with seven points, two rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

The Spurs put this game away in the third quarter and Brewer didn't get to play in garbage time. He was coming off a huge game on Friday and the Wolves are very shorthanded, so expect Brewer to be better on Monday.
Dec 7 - 12:39 AM

Corey Brewer had some extra ball-handling responsibilities against the Rockets on Friday, scoring 15 points with seven rebounds, six assists, two steals, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes.

It's one of his best lines of the season and the Wolves allowed him to run a lot of plays tonight. There's no reason to think he won't have a similar chance to do the same on Saturday against the Spurs with Mo Williams (back) not traveling, so his fantasy owners should have him locked in to their lineups for that one.
