Anthony Tolliver failed to score in 25 minutes vs, the Celtics on Sunday, missing all seven of his attempts from the field.
He did record three assists, two boards and one block, but it's tough to sugarcoat this performance. Tolliver was simply awful tonight, and the only good news is that he still saw 25 minutes of action. There is no telling when Greg Monroe (knee) will return, but Tolliver is still worth a look in deeper leagues for his 3-point shooting. Expect him to bounce back on Tuesday vs. the Raptors.

Anthony Tolliver didn't make any treys during a 107-91 win over the Bulls on Saturday, scoring four points with six boards, one assist and one steal in 22 minutes.

He was in foul trouble, so he squandered a chance for more playing time with Shawne Williams (illness) and Greg Monroe (knee) out. Monroe is out for Sunday and could miss more time, so Tolliver is a sneaky player to own in deep leagues.
Mar 21 - 10:59 PM

Anthony Tolliver scored nine points with five rebounds, one block and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday.

This morning it seemed like Greg Monroe (knee) was going to be ready tonight, but now there's talk of him missing both games this weekend. Tolliver scored 15 points in 32 minutes on Tuesday and could score in the low teens against the Celtics and Bulls this weekend. Give him a look if you need some points, boards and treys.
Mar 18 - 9:41 PM

Anthony Tolliver started Tuesday's game and finished with 15 points (4-of-12 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs), four 3-pointers, seven rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes.

He scored 14 points off the bench on Saturday but was shooting just 29.0 percent in his five previous games, and won't help fantasy owners with more than a handful of 3-pointers most nights. Monroe is expected to play on Wednesday so there's no reason for Tolliver to budge from the waiver wire.
Mar 17 - 10:20 PM

Anthony Tolliver will slide into the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Grizzlies with Greg Monroe (knee) unavailable.

Tolliver is capable of scoring in the teens while draining some 3-pointers, and he's worth a look as a streamer option. He will however have a tough matchup against the Grizzlies, so that's something to consider for those playing daily leagues. Shawne Williams will also likely get some extended run tonight.
Mar 17 - 6:14 PM

Anthony Tolliver started the second half against the Jazz on Saturday, finishing with 14 points, three boards, one assist and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

The Pistons lost Andre Drummond to a concussion, so we could have a couple games of Tolliver getting close to 30 minutes. The team really doesn't have a lot of depth and coach Stan Van Gundy loves floor-spacing guys, so Tolliver is worth a look in deep leagues.
Mar 15 - 3:09 AM

Anthony Tolliver did not score in his 21 minutes off the bench during a 100-91 win over the Bulls, adding five rebounds, two assists and one turnover.

His minutes are somewhat safer now and he was the first man off the bench. Tolliver obviously isn't a fantasy savior or anything, but he'll be a decent plug-and-play guy in deep leagues. He's not a DFS option, obviously.
Feb 21 - 1:14 AM

Anthony Tolliver got hot in 25 minutes vs. the Hornets, finishing with 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting, three 3-pointers, four rebounds and one assist.

The Hornets' frontcourt was overmatched all night, but the low-point may have been watching Tolliver repeatedly blow by defenders for easy buckets. He's emerged with a steady enough bench role for specialist value in deep leagues, averaging 8.0 points, 1.3 triples, 3.3 rebounds and 0.5 steals in February.
Feb 10 - 9:29 PM

Anthony Tolliver scored 15 points in a 34 minutes of action on Sunday, falling one point shy of his season-high in a disappointing home loss to the Wolves.

He made 4-of-8 field goals and 4-of-4 free throws with three 3-pointers, four rebounds and one assist, and picked up more minutes than usual with both Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond in foul trouble. Tolliver's steady barrage of 3-point attempts is enough for value in deep leagues, but most owners should leave him on the waiver wire.
Feb 8 - 9:15 PM

Anthony Tolliver played 21 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday with 12 points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

He was running some pick-and-roll plays with John Lucas III, which is something nobody imagined a couple months ago. He was out there for spacing, but his minutes are going to be limited as long as Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe are healthy. Give him a look in deep leagues, though.
Feb 4 - 9:45 PM

Anthony Tolliver played a season-high 33 minutes on Wednesday, finishing a win vs. the Magic with nine points, one 3-pointer, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.

The 29-year-old journeyman has carved out a dependable role under Stan Van Gundy, but his playing time is likely to fluctuate based upon matchups. The Pistons scored a season-high 128 points tonight vs. Orlando's hapless defense, which also aided Tolliver's cause, and he's little more than a 3-point specialist in deep leagues.
Jan 21 - 10:21 PM

Anthony Tolliver approached his season-high in playing time on Tuesday, scoring three points with five rebounds and one steal in 23 minutes vs. the Spurs.

He missed all four of his 3-point attempts but coach Stan Van Gundy seemed to prefer Tolliver's court-stretching shooting range, which allowed Andre Drummond to dominate the paint. There's no reason to touch Tolliver outside of the deepest fantasy leagues.
Jan 6 - 11:28 PM

Anthony Tolliver came off the Pistons' bench on Tuesday for five points, one 3-pointer and two rebounds in 11 minutes.

Stan Van Gundy's appreciation for 3-point shooters is well-known, which gives Tolliver intriguing deep-league upside now that he's in Detroit. He still faces stiff competition from Jonas Jerebko and Caron Butler for reserve forward minutes, and belongs on the waiver wire until further notice.

Anthony Tolliver will be active for Tuesday's game against the Magic.

The Pistons recently acquired him in a trade with the Suns, and coach Stan Van Gundy is said to be a fan of his ability to stretch the floor. That being said, Tolliver likely won't be a big part of the rotation right away and owners in deep leagues can use a wait-and-see approach here. We will let you know how he fares after the game.
Tue, Dec 30, 2014 07:13:00 PM

Anthony Tolliver is expected to be active in Detroit's next game on Tuesday against the Magic.

Tolliver should have been active for Sunday's win, but a clerical error prevented that from happening. "A screwup on our part," Stan Van Gundy said.
