Corey Brewer said he's working on finding confidence in his shot.
Brewer is shooting just 30.3 percent from the field, but is working on getting his confidence back. "We have to get our confidence back. We've been struggling all year. Now, I feel like we're getting in the flow. Once we start making shots, we're going to be tough." While Brewer isn't a must-own option in standard leagues, he can still provide some value to owners in deeper fantasy leagues. Nov 24 - 10:15 AM

Corey Brewer (thigh) played on Friday against the Kings, scoring four points on 1-of-1 shooting with one rebound, one assist and one steal in 17 minutes.

Whether it has been the thigh contusion or not, Brewer just hasn't been able to take advantage of his teammates' absences. He'll cruise along the top-150 range when he gets everything going, and that makes him a deep league asset only.
Nov 7 - 2:37 AM

Corey Brewer (left thigh contusion) is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. Sacramento.

He's simply dealing with a thigh bruise, so he should be out there on Friday. He could see some extended minutes with Patrick Beverley (concussion) unavailable, but he's not more than a steals specialist in deep leagues.
Nov 5 - 2:28 PM

Corey Brewer (toes, rest) returned to practice on Thursday.

Brewer should be fine when the regular-season begins on October 28, but as a reserve player for the Rockets, he can't be viewed as much more than a steals and 3-point specialist in deep leagues.

Corey Brewer is a game-time decision on Monday.

It appears to be for rest after Brewer sat out on Saturday, and we'll let you know if it's something more than that.
Oct 19 - 12:03 PM

Corey Brewer (rest) will not play vs. the Heat on Saturday.

There is no report of an injury and Brewer is simply just getting a day off to rest. Brewer figures to be the first wing off the bench behind James Harden and Trevor Ariza, and he has looked very sharp in the preseason so far. He will be hard to rely on in terms of fantasy while the Rockets are at full strength, so he is more of a deep league option.
Oct 17 - 12:12 PM

Corey Brewer had 21 points, three rebounds, three assists, seven steals and three 3-pointers on 6-of-12 shooting in 31 minutes on Tuesday.

Wow. He'll likely be playing behind both James Harden and Trevor Ariza this season, and it's important to note that Harden was out tonight, nursing his sore knee. As long as the two starters are healthy, Brewer's good games are going to be outweighed by his bad ones.
Oct 14 - 1:52 AM

Corey Brewer had a solid outing for the Rockets on Sunday, scoring 20 points (5-of-9 FGs, 8-of-9 FTs) with three rebounds, three steals, two 3-pointers and two turnovers in just 22 minutes of action.

Brewer got some extended run tonight with James Harden taking an early seat on the sidelines due to a minor knee injury, and he also had the benefit of going up against a young Orlando team that wasn't very interested in playing defense. He is capable of the occasional outburst, but he doesn't do it enough on a consistent basis to warrant the attention of owners in standard leagues. Brewer is better served as a steals and 3-point specialist in deep leagues.

Corey Brewer said he's happy that the Rockets traded for Ty Lawson.

Brewer knows Lawson well from their time in Denver together and said he's excited to play with his former teammate again. "I was really happy," Brewer said. "I had some good years in Denver with Ty so I know how to play with him and I love the way he plays because he plays fast like I do and he's going to push the pace, push the tempo. That's what we need here. That's what we like to do. We like to run." While Lawson should help Brewer's game a bit, his only real fantasy value comes in the steals category, so he's not much more than a specialist in standard fantasy leagues.

The Rockets will be re-signing Corey Brewer to a three-year, $24 million deal.

The Knicks, Celtics and Kings could've had a shot, but the Rockets make a great case. He thrives in their system and may have more opportunity next year. Brewer's inconsistency in halfcourt sets will make him tough to own in standard leagues.
Jul 3 - 6:06 PM

The Knicks are meeting with Corey Brewer on Friday.

The Knicks were 16th in the NBA for percentage of points scored off turnovers and were just 28th in pace, so Brewer wouldn't be a great fit with them. Of course, they could tweak their system, which might not be a bad idea after their horrific 2014-15 season.
Jul 3 - 11:57 AM

Corey Brewer has already met with the Rockets and has meetings with the Celtics and Knicks on the horizon.

He is an unrestricted free agent and all three teams could use some wing depth. The Rockets have bigger fish to fry, so they probably won't be as aggressive on Brewer than the Knicks and Celtics. Still, Brewer blossomed from being more than just a transitional scorer.
Jul 1 - 2:22 AM

Corey Brewer is reportedly looking for a long-term deal as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Brewer said that he will be open-minded in re-signing with the Rockets, but it's not clear at this point if Houston will be able to give him the kind of offer he is seeking. Brewer is the prototypical 3-and-D player, which is all the rage in the NBA right now, so he should get plenty of offers this offseason. It'll be interesting to see where he winds up, but in fantasy hoops, he won't be much more than a steals and 3-point specialist wherever he lands.
Jun 28 - 5:05 PM

The Rockets will try and re-sign Corey Brewer as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

The feeling is mutual as Brewer has gone on record saying that he loves playing in Houston, and hopes the team can remain together. Brewer had a nice run with the Rockets, averaging 11.9 points, 1.1 steals and 1.0 three-pointers on 42.9 percent shooting during the 2014-15 season, so he's good for some low-end value in standard leagues.
Jun 28 - 3:14 PM

Corey Brewer stated his desire to return to the Rockets next season.

"I love playing [in Houston]," Brewer said. "I hope we are back together. We made the Western Conference finals and hopefully everything works out and we are all back together next year." Brewer waived his player option as a condition the trade that sent him from Minnesota to Houston, so he's going to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. He earned himself a nice role with the Rockets this year, but with averages of 11.9 points, 1.1 steals and 1.0 three-pointer per game on 42.9 percent shooting from the field, he's not much more than a low-end asset in standard leagues.
