Corey Brewer moved into the starting lineup against the Suns on Friday, finishing with five points, two rebounds, two assists and three steals in 33 minutes.
His energy is his calling card and he brought it on the defensive end tonight. However, with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope returning from his suspension, Brewer is only going to get a handful of minutes going forward. Oct 21 - 2:44 AM

Date:

Corey Brewer will start against the Suns on Friday, moving Luol Deng to the bench.

Luke Walton said a change was coming, but this isn't one that fantasy owners will be excited about. Both Brewer and Deng will be irrelevant when Kentavious Caldwell-Pope returns from his suspension.
Oct 20 - 9:16 PM

Corey Brewer scored two points with three rebounds in 16 minutes against the Clippers on Thursday.

The Lakers need some help on the wing with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope out for the first two, so it's possible Brewer loses most of his minutes after Friday.
Oct 20 - 1:31 AM

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.
