Anthony Tolliver scored 10 points with four rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Thunder on Sunday.
Tolliver started in his fourth consecutive game tonight and has played over 30 minutes in each of his starts. During that stretch, he is averaging 33.3 minutes, 12.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.3 treys per game. Coach Dave Joerger likes to mix it up with his starting five, so at any moment Tolliver could head back to his bench role. However, until that happens, he is worth considering in deeper leagues for fantasy owners in need of 3-pointers and steals. Jan 16 - 12:27 AM

Anthony Tolliver scored 17 points with three triples, four rebounds and three assists in 36 minutes against the Pistons on Tuesday.

The 31-year-old sharpshooter took seven attempts from deep and finished 4-of-11 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line. At first glance this looks like a fluke, but Tolliver actually had 16 points and three more triples in his previous outing. He's played 36 and 32 minutes in those two games, so feel free to give him a glance if you strictly need a couple 3-pointers. Just keep in mind that he's still Anthony Tolliver.
Jan 11 - 1:39 AM

Anthony Tolliver started Sunday's game and finished with 16 points, five rebounds, two steals and 3-pointers in 32 minutes of action.

The veteran displaced Matt Barnes tonight, but he's just as likely to head back to the bench in Sacramento's next game. There should be better 3-point specialists on your waiver wire.
Jan 9 - 12:53 AM

Anthony Tolliver and Garrett Temple will start vs. the Warriors on Sunday, with Matt Barnes and Ty Lawson shifting to the second unit.

The Kings' starting lineup is perpetually in flux, so this is no surprise. Lawson is the only guy in this group with sustained fantasy appeal, but check back after the game to see how Tolliver and Temple fare vs. the Warriors.

Anthony Tolliver did not score in eight minutes against the Clippers with three rebounds.

With Rudy Gay back in the lineup, Tolliver lost most of his playing time. Go ahead and drop him in deep leagues.
Jan 7 - 12:58 AM

Anthony Tolliver started after halftime on Wednesday and finished with 14 points (5-of-6 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs) with three boards, two assists and one 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

Tolliver ranks fourth in the NBA in terms of the percentage of his field goals that are 3-pointers (73.6 percent). Coach Dave Joerger clearly values his ability to space the court at the PF position, but Tolliver is the epitome of a specialist and there are no guarantees that he'll start vs. the Clippers on Friday. Leave him on the wire.
Jan 5 - 2:18 AM

Anthony Tolliver scored 16 points with six rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

The Rudy Gay (hip) story has officially become weird, so it's anyone's guess when he will be back. The Kings have used Tolliver as a stretch four and he has meshed well with DeMarcus Cousins to give the big man some extra space. He's really just a deep-league guy for owners needing more treys.

Anthony Tolliver scored a season-high 17 points on 6-of-9 shooting in 31 minutes off the bench Friday, to go with five 3-pointers and three rebounds.

Tolliver has actually been averaging 30.5 minutes a night over the past six games, and he’s jumped into a mid-round evaluation during that span with averages of 10.9 points, 5.5 boards, 2.2 triples and just 0.3 turnovers per game. That being said, his minutes and production will likely take a hit once Rudy Gay (hip) and Omri Casspi (illness) get back in the rotation, so he’s only on the radar as a speculative pickup in deep leagues.

Anthony Tolliver returned to the bench on Friday vs. the Grizzlies and scored nine points on 2-of-6 shooting in 30 minutes.

He also had two rebounds, one assist and one triple. He still had a large role tonight with Rudy Gay (hip) and Omri Casspi (illness) out, but the return of DeMarcus Cousins (rest) limited his ceiling. Leave him on the wire.
Sat, Dec 17, 2016 01:09:00 AM

Anthony Tolliver started in place of DeMarcus Cousins (rest) on Wednesday, posting 12 points, 10 boards, two steals, two blocks, one 3-pointer and just one turnover in 35 minutes.

With Rudy Gay (hip) and DeMarcus Cousins (rest) both out tonight, the Kings were missing two players with a combined 61.9 percent usage rate. Tolliver and Garrett Temple were the big winners in their absence, but this is a fluky game without long-term repercussions.
Thu, Dec 15, 2016 01:02:00 AM

Anthony Tolliver will start for the Kings on Wednesday with DeMarcus Cousins resting.

Kosta Koufos will stick in the center spot and the fact that Tolliver is starting confirms that coach Dave Joerger doesn't have faith in Willie Cauley-Stein's ability to play the PF spot, or to supplant Koufos at center.
Wed, Dec 14, 2016 07:43:00 PM

Anthony Tolliver scored 10 points with five rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Knicks on Friday.

He was the go-to forward for Matt Barnes (rest) tonight. With Barnes possibly in legal trouble, Tolliver could have some value at some point down the line.

Anthony Tolliver (knee) remains questionable for Thursday against the Lakers.

His right knee contusion had him listed as probable for Tuesday, but he didn't get out there. Tolliver may not be in the rotation regardless.
Thu, Nov 10, 2016 03:18:00 PM

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.
Tue, Nov 8, 2016 06:00:00 PM

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.
