Courtney Lee was a no-show against the 76ers on Saturday with eight points, one rebound, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.
He only scored one point on Wednesday and has hit rock bottom since the Jeff Green deal. However, Lee was hot in his three previous games, so there is still some hope. Unless it's to grab someone like D.J. Augustin or even O.J. Mayo, Lee is a hold for a couple more games. Jan 24 - 11:54 PM

Date:

Courtney Lee and Jeff Green are starting against the 76ers on Saturday.

Tony Allen will come off the bench. The Grizzlies aren't going to shuffle the minutes too much with these guys, but it'll just be who each guy plays next ty o. There is no need to adjust the projections much here.
Jan 24 - 7:51 PM

Courtney Lee played 29 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, scoring one point with five rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and zero turnovers in 29 minutes.

Lee was very productive in two games off the Grizzlies' bench earlier this season, but he faces a fresh challenge for minutes and touches now that Jeff Green is starting at SF alongside Tony Allen. Lee shot 0-of-3 tonight and is unlikely to hold standard-league fantasy value while playing a diminished offensive role with the second unit.
Jan 21 - 11:42 PM

Courtney Lee scored 17 points against the Blazers on Saturday with two rebounds, three assists and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He's actually red-hot since the Jeff Green trade. In his last four games, Lee averaged 17.3 points, 1.5 boards, 2.3 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.5 triples on 52.0 percent from the field in 35.5 minutes per game. Green's minutes have come from Tony Allen, so maybe the Grizzlies are trying to keep him fresh for later. Lee is worth owning in standard leagues again.
Jan 18 - 1:42 AM

Courtney Lee backed up a solid outing from Wednesday with 16 points on Friday, hitting 6-of-14 shots (including a three) with two rebounds, one assists and one steal.

Lee's fantasy friendly game has managed to hold season-long top 75-100 value despite a pretty quiet month of basketball. He can fly up the rankings pretty quick when he's hot and he should be owned in all standard formats, at least until he cools off.
Jan 16 - 11:30 PM

Courtney Lee hit 7-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 18 points and three assists in Wednesday's win over the Nets.

Lee has been hit or miss all season long, but is playing well again, scoring 18 points in two straight games. As long as he's starting at shooting guard, he has the potential to do this every night, so put him back on your radar if you'd forgotten about him.
Jan 14 - 11:13 PM

Courtney Lee played well in 44 minutes of action on Sunday, scoring 18 points on 7-of-13 shooting with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists and two steals.

Unfortunately for Lee's fantasy owners, he faces a fresh challenge with Jeff Green set to join the Grizzlies' rotation. Tony Allen (12 points in 41 minutes) will soon be angling for more of Lee's minutes at shooting guard, and Lee's subtle fantasy value can't withstand a big drop from the 33 minutes he averaged in December. Cautious owners should already be scouring the waiver wire for replacements.
Jan 11 - 9:21 PM

Courtney Lee scored four points with four rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 28 minutes on Friday.

His minutes are likely going to drop off with the arrival of Jeff Green. Lee wasn't playing well coming into this game and he's put up numbers outside of the top 200 in standard leagues in the past two weeks. It's probably time to move on.
Jan 10 - 1:37 AM

The Grizzlies beat the Spurs on Tuesday, 95-87, with Courtney Lee contributing eight points, one 3-pointer, four rebounds, five assists and two steals.

Lee played his usual solid defense and made intangible contributions throughout his 31 minutes of action, but his fantasy value has undeniably eroded during the month of December. Compared to his November averages, he's down in points (-3.9), FG percentage (-6.6 percent), 3-pointers (-0.8), rebounds (-0.5) and steals (-0.4). Those aren't big numbers, but they're substantial enough to have bumped him from mid-round to late-round value.
Tue, Dec 30, 2014 11:13:00 PM

Courtney Lee shot 1-of-5 from the field in Sunday's road loss, finishing with four points, three rebounds, two assists and one block.

This was Lee's third single-digit performance in the past four games and he played only 23 minutes before taking a seat, but fantasy owners shouldn't over-react. His subtly efficient and well-rounded production has given him mid-round fantasy value this season, and he's played at least 30 minutes in all but one of the Grizzlies' past six games.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 07:11:00 PM

Courtney Lee had 19-point game against the 76ers on Saturday with three rebounds, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He hasn't had a big game in a while and posted just No. 109 value in standard leagues in the past two weeks. Lee has been efficient, adds steals, hits triples and doesn't turn the ball over, so he should be owned in standard leagues.
Sat, Dec 13, 2014 11:24:00 PM

Courtney Lee faded into the background during Tuesday's game, scoring four points with two assists and two steals in just 19 minutes of action.

C-Lee gave way to Tayshaun Prince, who played well in 29 minutes off the bench, but we're not reading too much into this situational dud. Lee averaged 37.5 minutes over the Grizzlies' past two games and has held a reliable starting job all season, so fantasy owners should strive to remain patient.
Tue, Dec 9, 2014 10:34:00 PM

Courtney Lee scored eight points on 4-of-9 shooting with three rebounds and one assist over 38 minutes on Friday against the Spurs.

Lee has been a ghost recently but he was so good earlier in the year that he's still a solid mid-round value on the season. Drop him if you'd like, but the math still suggests that he should be owned in most standard formats.
Sat, Dec 6, 2014 02:08:00 AM

Courtney Lee scored four points with two rebounds, two assists and one block in 24 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday.

He has cooled off a lot over his last five, averaging 10.2 points, 2.2 boards, 2.2 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.2 triples on 47.6 percent from the field. That is still worth owning in most leagues, but we can probably say with some certainty his hot start was a fluke. Plus, his usage rate is among the worst for players with at least 30 minutes per game.
Wed, Dec 3, 2014 11:52:00 PM

Courtney Lee's streak of quiet games continued on Sunday with 11 points, one rebound, one assist and one steal in 32 minutes vs. the Kings.

C-Lee didn't make either of his 3-point attempts, though he was still 5-of-9 from the field overall. A torrid start to the year has buoyed his fantasy stats, putting him in the top-50 for season-long value, but owners should view him more as a top-100 option.
