Anthony Tolliver (right knee contusion) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.

Tolliver has appeared in five games this season, averaging 14.2 minutes per contest. Tolliver might steal a few minutes from Kosta Koufus and/or Willie Cauley-Stein, but should have little fantasy impact overall.

Anthony Tolliver (right knee contusion) is listed as questionable for Tuesday vs. New Orleans.

Tolliver hadn't played more than 15 minutes in any game this season. Kosta Koufus and Willie Cauley-Stein will likely see some additional minutes with Tolliver out.

Anthony Tolliver (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raptors.

Tolliver's minutes will be divvied up between Kosta Koufos, Willie Cauley-Stein and Skal Labissiere, which doesn't mean all that much in fantasy hoops.
Nov 6 - 4:41 PM

Anthony Tolliver (knee) will not play against the Bucks on Saturday.

That means the Kings are going to be short in the forward department with Rudy Gay (ribs) out and Matt Barnes (ribs) limited. Omri Casspi should play a ton while Kosta Koufos, Ben McLemore, Willie Cauley Stein and the other starters will have to step up.
Nov 5 - 6:41 PM

Anthony Tolliver scored seven points in 21 minutes on Thursday, adding four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

Coach Dave Joerger actually used Tolliver as a small forward in this game. It's nice to see guys get more position flexibility, but Tolliver won't have much value.
Oct 7 - 1:07 AM

Unrestricted free agent Anthony Tolliver will sign with the Kings on a two-year, $16 million deal.

Only $2 million on the second year is guaranteed. The Kings have a lot of their roster invested on big men, so Tolliver likely won't be getting many minutes while the team is healthy.

Anthony Tolliver would like to return to the Detroit Pistons in free agency.

Tolliver didn't have a big role with the Pistons in 2015-16, but it sounds like there is mutual interest in his return. "I would love to stay here. I’ve been bouncing around a lot in my career," Tolliver said. "I feel comfortable here, and I feel like what I bring to the table fits what this team needs." The 30-year-old average 5.1 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.4 three-pointers in 18.6 minutes in 2015-16 and isn't a fantasy option in standard leagues.
May 3 - 9:46 AM

Stan Van Gundy is open to re-signing Anthony Tolliver and Steve Blake in free agency.

"In just a very general sense, I like the idea of having both of them back," Van Gundy said. "But, and I was honest with them, there are priorities ahead of re-signing them. I told Steve flat-out that we'll look to upgrade that position with a guy who's more of a long-term answer." Tolliver averaged 5.3 points, 3.2 boards and 1.4 3-pointers in 18.6 minutes per game this season, so it's hard to imagine his role growing if he does re-sign with the Pistons.

Anthony Tolliver drained five 3-pointers to finish Wednesday's road win with 15 points, eight rebounds and one assist in 39 minutes.

All but one of the veteran's shots were beyond the arc, which sums up his role -- he's the epitome of a stretch-PF with 85 percent of his attempts coming from downtown this season. He's nothing more than a specialist in deep leagues.
Apr 13 - 11:39 PM

Anthony Tolliver scored a season-high 17 points during a win over the Nets on Saturday with four rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers.

He was hot and coach Stan Van Gundy stuck with him. Fantasy owners can pretty much ignore this line and leave Tolliver on the wire.
Mar 19 - 10:27 PM

Anthony Tolliver played for the first time since Feb. 21, picking up one steal in nine minutes against the Hornets on Friday.

He probably won't be playing much because coach Stan Van Gundy trusts Tobias Harris. Tolliver can be ignored in almost all leagues.
Mar 11 - 10:13 PM

Anthony Tolliver (knee) is available as needed for Friday against the Hornets.

In other words, he probably isn't going to play unless there is another injury or someone gets into foul trouble. Tolliver isn't a fantasy option.
Mar 11 - 5:39 PM

Anthony Tolliver (knee) is a game-time call vs. the Hornets on Friday.

He hasn't played since Feb. 21, but he likely lost his starting spot while he was on the shelf because Tobias Harris has thrived in the first unit. Tolliver said that he will play, but he's only on the radar in very deep leagues.
Mar 11 - 12:34 PM

Anthony Tolliver (knee) and Jodie Meeks (foot) could return to the court for Monday's game against the Wizards, according to Rod Beard of The Detroit News.

Tolliver, Meeks and Stanley Johnson (shoulder) were spotted going through some 3-on-3 work during Thursday's practice, so perhaps they can get back on the court for the final game of Detroit's road trip. However, with Tobias Harris healthy, Tolliver will be a non-factor in fantasy hoops and it could be tough for Johnson to earn enough playing time to matter in standard leagues. Meeks is going to be brought along slowly in Detroit, so there's no reason to own him in most leagues.
