Anthony Tolliver started the second half in place of Stanley Johnson on Saturday, hitting 3-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for eight points, four boards, two assists, a steal and two blocks in 26 minutes.
Now that's a full stat line. We're not too excited about the random start over Johnson after the break, but it could also be possible that the Pistons might move Johnson to the bench and start Tolliver going forward. If it happens, the 32-year-old journeyman will be worth a look in deeper leagues. Johnson had nine points, four boards and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes, so it might have been his defense that got him benched tonight. Oct 29 - 1:17 AM

Anthony Tolliver picked up a DNP-CD during Wednesday's win vs. the Wolves.

Stan Van Gundy said before the game that he's still experimenting with his rotations. "This has been a period for us of constant evaluation — not just in terms of personnel, but in terms of our offense and what we want to do and defensive schemes." Tolliver has long been a favorite of SVG's, but as tonight shows, that's no guarantee that he'll be in the rotation every night.

Anthony Tolliver logged 21 minutes off the bench on Friday, going 0-of-3 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line to finish with three points, four rebounds and one assist.

Tolliver turned 32 years old in June and he might not be in the rotation if Stan Van Gundy didn't love his ability to stretch the court. The veteran hasn't been a standard-league fantasy option since playing for the Warriors in 2009-10.

Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said that Anthony Tolliver is "one of the highest-character guys in the NBA."

"What he will do in terms of leadership is important to our team, but it’s important that he’s a guy who can go out and play," Van Gundy said. "It’s tough to be a leader who’s not playing, and Tolliver still plays at a high level." Tolliver will give the Pistons a much-needed 3-point threat off the bench, but he's unlikely to make a fantasy impact while battling for minutes with Jon Leuer and Henry Ellenson.

Anthony Tolliver has reportedly agreed to a one-year, $3.3 million deal with the Pistons.

Tolliver adds some emergency depth to Detroit's frontcourt, but he won't see enough consistent minutes with the Pistons to make a difference in fantasy hoops.
Jul 11 - 4:55 PM

The Pistons are reportedly interested in unrestricted free agent Anthony Tolliver.

The Pistons are looking to fill their 14th roster spot, and with them looking at both Tolliver and Jonas Jerebko, it would appear they'd like to bring on another power forward. That's an interesting standpoint for the team to take with Tobias Harris, Jon Leuer and Henry Ellenson already on the roster, but apparently, Stan Van Gundy can never have enough stretch-fours.

Kings waive F/C Anthony Tolliver.

The Kings got plenty of burn out of Tolliver last season with 1,477 total minutes in 65 games, averaging 7.1 points, 3.6 boards and 1.4 treys. Tolliver had a June 1 guarantee for next season, so the Kings will save some money here and elect to stretch the $2 million still owed to the big man. Tolliver is still 32 years old and he'll likely wind up at the end of a bench as a stretch four.
Jun 1 - 5:17 PM

Anthony Tolliver (rest) will not play Wednesday against the Clippers.

He played 22 minutes on Tuesday, so that opens up more run for Georgios Papagiannis and Skal Labissiere. Tolliver's contract for next season is not guaranteed.
Apr 12 - 4:58 PM

Anthony Tolliver (hip) is probable for Sunday's game vs. the Rockets.

He only played 15 minutes in his last outing, so there's just no fantasy appeal here. A DNP could be coming on Tuesday or Wednesday as well.
Apr 9 - 1:47 PM

Anthony Tolliver (hip) returned to action on Friday vs. the Lakers and finished with zero points, three boards and two assists in 15 minutes.

There's a good chance that the veteran is rested again on Sunday vs. Houston, so he's safe to leave on the wire.
Apr 8 - 1:39 AM

Anthony Tolliver (hip) is probable to play on Friday against the Lakers.

It's not really clear if the Kings will play Tolliver. With him being probable, it does make Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis slightly risky in deep leagues or DFS.
Apr 7 - 4:45 PM

Anthony Tolliver (rest) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Mavs.

Tolliver is going to be rested more than he plays for these final five games of the season, so he's safe to leave on the waiver wire in all settings. Skal Labisseire and Georgios Papagiannis will split most of his minutes.
Apr 4 - 2:45 PM

Anthony Tolliver (rest) returned to the lineup on Saturday vs. the Wolves, finishing with eight points, four rebounds, three assists and three blocks in 28 minutes.

The Kings were playing him down the stretch over Skal Labissiere, but coach Dave Joerger has always had a soft spot for his veterans. Tolliver is going to be rested too much going forward to matter in most fantasy leagues.
Apr 1 - 10:44 PM

Anthony Tolliver (rest) will not play Friday vs. the Pelicans.

This is the third time the Kings have rested Tolliver over the past two weeks. There will likely be another game or two he sits out before the regular season wraps up. Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis should get a bump with Tolliver out.
Mar 31 - 1:02 PM

Anthony Tolliver returned from a rest day to finish Sunday's thrilling comeback victory with 15 points 5-of-6 shooting, with all of his attempts coming from downtown.

Tolliver added three rebounds and one block in 23 minutes of action tonight. He's going to get occasional DNP-CDs down the stretch, even if the Kings don't eventually shut him down, which makes him undesirable even as a 3-point specialist.
