Corey Brewer drained 9-of-15 shots to finish Sunday's Game 4 loss with 22 points, five rebounds, one steal and one block in 32 minutes off the Rockets' bench.
Brewer hit one 3-pointer and went 3-of-4 at the free throw line. He was a 26.8 percent shooter from downtown during the regular season yet he's averaging 2.0 triples on 60.0 percent shooting from deep in four games vs. Dallas. That's less surprising when you consider that Dallas gave up 9.1 triples per game to opponents this season, the highest mark of any team in the league. The Mavs were also below-average vs. opponent's bench players, so this is a tailor-made matchup for Brewer. Apr 27 - 12:41 AM

Date:

Corey Brewer turned it on down the stretch against the Mavs on Saturday with 15 points, one assist and three 3-poiners in 24 minutes.

He killed the Mavs in the fourth quarter with all three 3-pointers coming in that frame. Brewer's versatility at both wing spots should help him get playing time in the 20s. Trevor Ariza did have some cramping issues, but there's no need to worry about him.
Apr 19 - 12:31 AM

Corey Brewer scored 20 points with five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 29 minutes on Sunday, helping Houston hold off the Pelicans for a 121-114 victory.

Brewer has been nowhere near fantasy value over the past few weeks, averaging just 7.8 points on 32.7 percent shooting, so it was nice to see him make 6-of-11 field goals and 8-of-11 free throws tonight. He's not a 3-point threat and his steals have tailed off lately, so most fantasy owners should leave him on the waiver wire.
Apr 12 - 9:38 PM

Corey Brewer scored 15 points on 7-of-14 shooting, with five rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer, one steal, two blocks and three turnovers through 22 minutes of action.

Brewer continues to find ways to show up in the box score despite only playing 25 minutes per game for Houston. He's averaging 12.3 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 0.9 three-pointers per game through the month of March, making him a quality deep league asset.
Mar 29 - 4:44 PM

Corey Brewer (oblique strain) is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

Brewer hasn't missed any time with his oblique strain, so there's no reason to think he won't be able to give it a go on Friday. We'll let you know if that changes.
Mar 26 - 2:33 PM

Corey Brewer (oblique strain) is probable to play Wednesday vs. New Orleans.

This is the first we're hearing of an oblique injury for Brewer, but with the Rockets listing him as probable, we're not expecting him to miss any time. Brewer has been productive through the month of March, putting in averages of 13.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.0 steal, and 0.9 three-pointers per game on 48.1 percent shooting from the field. He's a good guy to own in deep leagues.
Mar 24 - 4:42 PM

Corey Brewer grabbed 10 rebounds during a 118-108 win over the Nuggets on Thursday with six points, four rebounds, one steal and one turnover on 3-of-9 from the field.

He has suddenly become a rebounding guard and pulled down a career-high 12 boards on Tuesday. Brewer's treys are down and he's slowed down in his last three outings, averaging 8.7 points, 8.3 boards, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks on 37.9 percent from the field. He's more of a steals specialist as long as you're OK with his sub-par shooting.
Mar 19 - 11:28 PM

Corey Brewer snatched a career-high 12 rebounds in 28 minutes off the bench on Tuesday, adding 13 points with one 3-pointer, three assists and one steal.

The Magic shot just 42.7 percent from the field so there were plenty of defensive rebounds to be had, and Brewer continues to find ways to help fantasy owners. He's a reliable source of steals and 3-pointers, and has ramped up his offensive with 16.5 points on 54.1 percent shooting over the past two weeks.
Mar 17 - 11:29 PM

Corey Brewer scored 25 points against the Jazz on Thursday with five rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer on 10-of-15 from the field.

He just keeps feasting in transition and Brewer probably wouldn't be in the NBA if it was only played in a halfcourt -- that goodness that's not the case. He's scored 24.0 points per game over his last three and is one of the hottest bench players in the NBA. He still hasn't done much with his time with the Rockets, so he's not a must-own player. He's worth a look while he's hot, though.
Mar 13 - 12:21 AM

Corey Brewer had 23 points, two rebounds, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers on 9-of-16 shooting in Wednesday's loss to the Blazers.

Brewer went nuts in the fourth quarter and scored 17 straight points for the Rockets, racking up steals and 3-pointers along the way, but couldn't come through at the end. He missed a good look at a three with about eight seconds left in the game, with his team trailing by three points. Brewer is always worth a look in fantasy, but has been unpredictable. He is also hot, scoring 23, 24 and 15 points in each of his last three games, with five 3-pointers to boot.
Mar 12 - 2:24 AM

Corey Brewer dropped 24 points against the Nuggets to lead the Rockets to a 114-100 win over the Nuggets on Saturday.

He added six boards, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes off the bench, but as good as he was tonight, Brewer's role is too inconsistent to rely on outside of deeper leagues. He won't have much value as long as James Harden and Trevor Ariza are healthy, so owners can simply monitor him from the wire for now.
Mar 8 - 12:04 AM

Corey Brewer started for the suspended James Harden on Tuesday, making 4-of-14 shots to finish with eight points, three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 31 minutes.

Brewer has made 71.8 percent of his baskets off assists from teammates this season, and he's converted only 27.6 percent of his jumpshots. He's better suited to being a tertiary scoring option with James Harden leading the offense and is only an option in 14-team leagues with Harden due back on Wednesday.

Mar 3 - 10:42 PM

Corey Brewer will replace James Harden (suspension) in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks.

Brewer will draw a favorable matchup against the Hawks, and he's worth a look as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues. He's averaging 12.0 points, 1.2 steals, and 1.3 three-pointers per game through 24 minutes of action since coming to Houston, so those numbers should make a jump with the increased minutes. Pablo Prigioni could also see some more floor time tonight serving as Brewer's primary backup.
Mar 3 - 6:12 PM

Corey Brewer made 3-of-12 from the field for 11 points with six boards, two assists and five turnovers in 22 minutes on Monday against his former team, the Wolves.

He obviously wasn't going to match his 26-point game from Saturday. Brewer has his random bright spots this season, but his minutes aren't going to be there while Trevor Ariza and James Harden are healthy. He is not worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 23 - 11:33 PM

Corey Brewer scored a season-high 26 points against the Raptors on Saturday with 10 rebounds, two assists, five steals and three turnovers.

He was hot and coach Kevin McHale just rode his coattails. The Rockets had 24 fast-break points, which is a Brewer special. Brewer still can't score when he's not getting buckets in transition and his steals are down, so he's not someone to add after this game.
