Aaron Brooks played four minutes on Thursday after missing Wednesday's game with an illness.

He had four points and a turnover, and may see some extra run with Jeff Teague out for the next two-to-four weeks, but Tyus Jones is the guy you want to own in Minnesota for as long as Teague is out.

Aaron Brooks (illness) is expected to be available on Thursday vs. Milwaukee.

Even with Jeff Teague (knee) out, Brooks isn't guaranteed to play. Look for Tyus Jones, Jamal Crawford, and even Jimmy Butler to spend time handling the rock.

Aaron Brooks (illness) is inactive for Wednesday.

He's not in the rotation with Tyus Jones having a solid season.

Aaron Brooks will return to the bench for Sunday's game against the Suns.

Brooks got the start on Friday night with Jeff Teague (Achilles) on the sidelines, but didn't play very well at all and was benched after 13 minutes of action. He'll likely see a similar workload tonight, so Brooks can't be considered a viable target in most scenarios. Tyus Jones will be drawing the start in his place and he's worth a look as a low-end streamer or DFS punt play.

Aaron Brooks started Friday's game in place of Jeff Teague (Achilles soreness), but he was benched to start the second half and finished with three points, two assists and one rebound in 13 minutes.

Brooks did nothing to advance his cause for playing time tonight, and it's no surprise that Tyus Jones leap-frogged him into the starting five after halftime. Even if Teague misses more games, which is uncertain, there's no incentive to add Brooks anywhere.

Aaron Brook will start for Jeff Teague against the Heat on Friday.

Brooks should be splitting the minutes at the one with Tyus Jones. However, it'll likely be Jimmy Butler running the offense more as he looks to stay hot. If you're looking for a speculative add in a deep league, Jones makes more sense.

Aaron Brooks scored four points with three assists in 16 minutes against the Lakers on Saturday.

He looks to be ahead of Tyus Jones for the backup point guard role, but coach Tom Thibodeau said before the game that tonight won't be too important for this position battle. Brooks is unlikely to have fantasy value.

The Timberwolves have signed G Aaron Brooks.

The Wolves will be Brooks' seventh NBA team. Last season he appeared in 65 games and averaged 5.0 points and 1.9 assists in 13.8 minutes per contest for the Pacers. Brooks is not on the fantasy radar.

The Wolves are expected to add Aaron Brooks for training camp.

He has a Tom Thibodeau connection for one season and remains unsigned. Brooks is 32 years old and played 13.8 minutes per game during his 65 outings with the Pacers last season.

The Timberwolves are reportedly looking to add a point guard and wing to round out their roster.

Three players on the Wolves radar are Aaron Brooks, Anthony Morrow, and Alan Anderson, according to the Basketball Insiders report. Minnesota has already added three former Bulls this offseason, so the interest in Brooks and Morrow should not be surprising. The Wolves currently have Jeff Teague and Tyus Jones as their top two point guards. Brooks could add depth there and is capable of playing off the ball in short spurts as well.

Aaron Brooks left Monday's game vs. the 76ers with a sore right knee and didn't return.

He finished with three points, two assists and one triple in 12 minutes. Brooks usually only plays minutes in the teens, but if he misses time, the Pacers will either give his minutes to Lance Stephenson or maybe even Joe Young.

Aaron Brooks scored 10 points with two rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 19 minutes against the Bucks on Thursday.

His fourth-quarter minutes were huge to help the Pacers pull away. Brooks actually took two charges against Khris Middleton in 32 seconds, which basically took the sails out of the sails for Milwaukee. Brooks still has no fantasy value.

Aaron Brooks scored 18 points in 28 minutes on Wednesday, making 6-of-15 FGs with a 4-of-5 mark from downtown in a tough loss to the Grizzlies.

Indiana is tied with Miami for the No. 8 seed and they're just 1.5 games up on the No. 9 seed Bulls, with road games looming vs. the Raptors and Cavaliers this weekend. Head coach Nate McMillan will roll with whichever lineups are working, in other words, and tonight that meant more Brooks over an ineffective Jeff Teague (20 minutes). That's extremely unlikely to become a trend.
Thu, Mar 30, 2017 12:33:00 AM

Aaron Brooks was held scoreless in 13 minutes with three rebounds in Thursday's win over the Timberwolves.

He returned to action after missing a game with knee soreness. Brooks has scored 10 or more points just six times this season and has been held to zero points in six games. He'll only be worth a look if Jeff Teague, who hasn't missed a game this season, were to go down with an injury.
