Corey Brewer is focused primarily on improving his perimeter shooting this offseason, according to Mark Medina of the O.C. Register.
"It’s a work in progress," Brewer said of his shooting. "I feel like by the time the season starts next year, I’ll be ready to go." The 31-year-old veteran hasn't shot better than 29.6 percent from deep since 2010-11, despite recent seasons with a Rockets team that emphasized 3-pointers, so a perimeter renaissance is doubtful. It's hard to envision him having a fantasy impact in L.A. Jul 26 - 10:23 PM

Corey Brewer scored five points with one rebound, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday.

He started the second half because Brandon Ingram (knee) had a restriction on his minutes. Brewer could get minutes on Friday, but his upside isn't worth stashing in almost any league.
Apr 6 - 12:03 AM

Corey Brewer returned to the bench on Saturday vs. the Clippers and scored six points with three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 10 minutes.

Brandon Ingram (knee) looked healthy in his return with 18 points, so Brewer will be irrelevant the rest of the way if the rookie holds up.
Apr 1 - 7:09 PM

Corey Brewer will move to the bench with Brandon Ingram back in the starting lineup.

After playing just 18 minutes in the starting lineup on Thursday, Brewer might be falling all the way out all the rotation. David Nwaba has played well enough to be earn more minutes and could still hit the 24-minute mark.
Apr 1 - 2:42 PM

Corey Brewer will remain in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against Washington, with Brandon Ingram (knee) unavailable.

Brewer put up three points, two boards, one assist, one steal, one triple and two blocks through 19 minutes as a starter his last time out, so he can't be considered a viable target in most leagues.
Mar 28 - 2:16 PM

Corey Brewer started Sunday's game in place of Brandon Ingram (right knee), finishing with three points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one 3-pointer and two blocks in 19 minutes.

Brewer might have played more if the game were close, but the veteran got a long rest with the score out of hand in the second half. He's not a fantasy option, even if Ingram misses more games.
Mar 27 - 12:38 AM

Corey Brewer will start Sunday's game in place of Brandon Ingram (patellar tendinitis).

David Nwaba should also get a significant boost with Ingram on the sidelines, and we might even see Nick Young or Metta World Peace get a few minutes. This is a situation to avoid in the vast majority of fantasy scenarios.
Mar 26 - 9:05 PM

Corey Brewer scored nine points with nine rebounds and a steal in 19 minutes off the bench in Sunday's loss against Cleveland.

Brewer had his best game in months, but it is still unlikely to move the needle for most fantasy owners. He is nothing more than a depth play in deeper fantasy leagues.
Mar 20 - 12:23 AM

On his 31st birthday, Corey Brewer chipped in four points, two rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 16 minutes off L.A.'s bench on Sunday.

Brewer is playing well when he's on the court, but he hadn't logged more than 13 minutes since being traded to the Lakers. Suffice to say, he's not a fantasy option at any depth.
Mar 6 - 12:17 AM

Corey Brewer scored two points in four minutes in his debut for the Lakers on Friday vs. the Thunder.

That just about sums up what his fantasy value will look like on the rebuilding Lakers. Leave him on the wire.
Feb 24 - 10:20 PM

Corey Brewer is available to play against the Thunder on Friday.

He is not a lock to play in this game. The Lakers are expected to go with a youth movement, so Brewer likely won't be featured on his new team. He is under contract for next year, though.
Feb 24 - 6:51 PM

Corey Brewer is with his new team but is a "long shot" to make his Lakers debut Friday vs. OKC.

Brewer has struggled mightily this season, averaging career-lows in points (4.2), rebounds (2.0), steals (0.7) and minutes (15.9). With the Lakers in rebuilding mode, the 30-year old Brewer is expected to see only limited minutes off the L.A. bench. He can be left on the waiver wire.
Feb 24 - 1:00 PM

Corey Brewer went through practice on Thursday.

Coach Luke Walton doesn't expect Brewer to play many minutes in his debut on Friday. There are some minutes available with Lou Williams in Houston, but there's no need to add Brewer almost anywhere for fantasy.
Feb 23 - 6:04 PM

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.

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.
