Brandon Rush (illness) will not play vs. the Pelicans on Friday.
This one is filed under the "who cares?" department for fantasy basketball owners. Rush did play six minutes on Monday, but the move to Utah hasn't helped him after a somewhat impressive start last season with the Warriors before suffering an ACL tear. Apr 4 - 7:41 PM

Brandon Rush (sore throat) is a game-time decision for Friday's matchup with the Pelicans.

Rush has completely fallen out Utah's rotation anyway, as he appeared in just five games in March.
Apr 4 - 12:42 PM

Brandon Rush (knee) returned to action on Friday against the Suns, playing 13 minutes with two rebounds and one assist off the bench.

Rush may take a while to get up to speed this season, and when it does happen it will complicate matters for Richard Jefferson and Marvin Williams. For now, owners should evaluate Rush's role on a game-by-game basis.

Brandon Rush (knee) said that "I think my knee is fine. Everything else is fine. I think I'm ready to go."

The Jazz currently boast the leagues worst record of 2-14 and can use all the help they can get. That being said, Rush is coming off a major knee injury, and will likely be eased back into the rotation, limiting his fantasy value. Use a wait-and-see approach.

Brandon Rush (knee) returned to practice on Wednesday and said that he may return to Utah's lineup for Friday's home game vs. the Suns.

"I think I’m taking a step forward," Rush said. "If I feel pretty good, I'll probably end up playing [Friday]." The Jazz can use all available assistance to improve their 2-14 record but Rush isn't likely to be a fantasy asset while he eases his way back into the rotation.

Brandon Rush (knee) will return to practice on Wednesday.

He made a few brief cameos in mid-November but hasn't been on the court since. It's reasonable to think he'll be on a minute-limit, at least initially, and he doesn't have any short-term fantasy appeal.

Brandon Rush (knee) will sit out again on Wednesday.

His knee may not have reacted well to playing 10 minutes on Nov. 10, and the Jazz are wisely holding him out a while longer. A handful of minutes await him at SG and SF upon his return.

Brandon Rush (knee) will not play on Monday night.

He played 10 minutes back on Nov. 10, but the Jazz have kept him out of the lineup since then. Rush may have wanted to suit up against his old team, but he'll have to wait until later in the season. Marvin Williams and Richard Jefferson should continue to get more of the minutes at small forward.

Brandon Rush will not play for the Jazz on Wednesday.

He's still recovering from knee surgery and has been in and out of the lineup since his return. There are no fantasy implications here.
Wed, Nov 13, 2013 07:28:00 PM

Brandon Rush is available to play on Friday night against the Bulls.

He played 10 minutes in his season debut on Tuesday, the was rested in Wednesday's game against the Celtics. Rush is 12 months removed from an ACL tear and teams almost always ease players back into action. Regardless, he's still more of an secondary piece in the rotation and is not worth owning in almost any league.

Brandon Rush made his season debut from knee surgery on Tuesday, but failed to attempt a shot or score a point in 10 minutes of action.

With Alec Burks in front of him and Rush working his way back to full strength, he should be ignored until further notice.

Brandon Rush (knee surgery) will see minutes in the first half on Tuesday, according to Tyrone Corbin.

Rush may only play one first-half stint and he's unlikely to play many minutes, but it'll be great to see him on the court after a lengthy rehab. With career averages of 9.1 points and 1.4 threes per game, he's worth keeping an eye on in deep leagues.
Tue, Nov 5, 2013 06:29:00 PM

Brandon Rush's (knee) recent tweets indicate that he may play in Tuesday's game against New Jersey.

Though listed as "out" on the team's injury report, Rush tweeted, "might see some action n the game tonight" and was present at the team's shootaround Tuesday morning. Even if Rush does play Tuesday night, he's still not in game shape and won't see major minutes so this isn't a situation that fantasy owners should be getting too excited about.
Tue, Nov 5, 2013 12:17:00 PM

Marvin Williams (Achilles) and Brandon Rush (knee) will both increase their activity during Monday's practice, but neither player's return is imminent.

Both guys played three-on-three last Monday but they should be viewed as 'out indefinitely' until the Jazz provide a meaningful update to their timetables.
Mon, Nov 4, 2013 12:24:00 PM

Brandon Rush played three-on-three Monday as he continues to recover from knee surgery.

He's still not in game shape and there's no timetable for his return as of yet. He should be a part of the rotation once he's ready to go, but it could take him all year to get back into peak condition.
