Courtney Lee scored 16 points with one rebound, four assists, one steal and two turnovers in 41 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.
The Knicks are probably going to start rolling the tank, which could mean more shots for Lee going forward. On the other hand, it's possible he gets some time off to get a look at some of their other younger players. Lee is still worth owning for now and he hasn't been rested yet this season -- he's had two different injury stints. Mar 24 - 12:23 AM

Courtney Lee scored just two points, missing five of his six field goal attempts, in Monday's 114-105 loss against the Clippers.

That's two poor outings over the past three games. Ron Baker picked up the slack in Monday's loss, but it's hard to see him eating into the veteran Lee's minutes just yet. Despite the rough patch recently he has been a solid source of 3-pointers and rebounds for most fantasy owners while also chipping in with a steal or two in rotisserie formats.
Mar 21 - 1:16 AM

Courtney Lee scored 13 points with seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Pistons on Saturday.

While he hasn't shot the ball too well, Lee is getting some heavy run and adding output in the other categories. In his last five games, Lee averaged 13.2 points, 4.6 boards, 1.4 steals and 1.4 treys in 35.8 minuets per game. Lee has been a fourth-round player since the break, so he should be owned in all standard leagues. Although, he only has two games for the upcoming week following Sunday's outing in Brooklyn.
Mar 11 - 8:26 PM

Courtney Lee scored 20 points in Monday's win over the Magic, adding three boards, two assists and one steal.

With Carmelo Anthony (knee soreness) out, Lee logged 41 minutes on the night and was a focal point of the offense. He shot 6-of-16 from the field, but missed all three of his 3-pointers. Lee is prone to duds, but he's been sneaky good for a while and is worth owning in standard leagues, especially if Melo misses more time.
Mar 6 - 9:43 PM

Courtney Lee was held to five points on 2-of-5 shooting during Sunday's loss to the Warriors, adding one 3-pointer, one assist, three steals and one turnover in 29 minutes.

The scoring comes and goes with Lee, but he's pretty consistent with the shooting percentages, steals and 3-point scoring. In fact, Lee has actually been a sneaky top-60 guy over the past month with averages of 11.8 points, 2.8 dimes, 1.4 steals, 1.8 triples and 1.2 turnovers per contest on 52.8 percent shooting. Give him a look if those numbers work for your squad.
Mar 5 - 7:08 PM

Courtney Lee (illness) scored a game-high 25 points against the Cavs on Thursday, adding six rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He was sick this morning, but managed to hit a season high in scoring. Lee has been a sneaky stud in standard fantasy leagues, posting fifth-round value in his last 15 games. While he won't be this good, he should be owned in standard leagues.
Feb 23 - 11:31 PM

Courtney Lee (illness) is in the starting lineup against the Cavs on Thursday.

He was not feeling well this morning and could be limit. If he is, Justin Holiday and Brandon Jennings could see some added minutes. Lee has been a sneaky asset in standard leagues and is a low-end hold.
Feb 23 - 8:13 PM

The Clippers and Knicks have discussed a trade involving Courtney Lee, according to ESPN's Ian Begley.

The Knicks are reportedly looking for draft picks, which the Clippers don't have, so it's unclear how far these discussions have gone. Lee would be a nice real-world addition to the Clippers but it wouldn't help his fantasy stock.
Feb 23 - 1:26 PM

Courtney Lee (illness) is still not feeling well on Thursday.

The good news is he was at shootaround and got shots up. He did not practice on Wednesday and should be considered questionable for tonight against the Cavs. If he can't go, we should see more Justin Holiday while Brandon Jennings will be next to Derrick Rose more often. Of course, the Knicks could be making a trade today.
Feb 23 - 10:54 AM

Courtney Lee (illness) and Joakim Noah (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday.

Head coach Jeff Hornacek said that Lee has been too ill to be able to fly in to New York to rejoin the team, but he's still expecting him to be available for Thursday's matchup with the Cavs. Noah, tweaked his hamstring just before the break and has already been ruled out for Thursday's game, so this isn't at all surprising. In the off-chance that Lee can't give it a go on Thursday, Justin Holiday and Brandon Jennings would likely pickup most of his minutes. Stay tuned.

Courtney Lee (illness) did not practice on Tuesday.

Lee still has another 48 hours before Thursday's game vs. the Cavaliers, but we should know more about his status after Wednesday's practice. If Lee is unable to play, Brandon Jennings and Justin Holiday will benefit the most. Through the first seven games of February, Lee averaged 10.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.6 triples.
Feb 21 - 7:34 PM

Courtney Lee scored 17 points with four rebounds and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

He's been sneaky good for the last two weeks and has always been a high-floor guy in fantasy. Obviously Derrick Rose (ankle) not being around helps, but Lee has fifth-round value in his last 10 games for his standard league owners. He's a solid pickup in eight- and nine-cat leagues.
Feb 4 - 11:25 PM

Courtney Lee scored 17 points on 6-of-16 shooting Sunday, to go with nine rebounds, three 3-pointers, two assists, two steals, one block and one turnover in 52 minutes.

Lee hit a clutch 3-point shot to send the game into the fourth overtime, and he nearly got the game to a fifth overtime period, but his final 3-point shot was just slightly off the mark. Lee isn’t the most exciting guy to own, but he’s been particularly hot over the past few weeks, knocking down 49.3 percent of his shot attempts to go with averages of 11.5 points, 2.4 dimes, 1.5 triples and just 0.4 turnovers per game. If you need a 3-point gunner in a 9-cat league, Lee could be your guy.
Jan 29 - 7:44 PM

Courtney Lee scored 16 points in a "revenge game" against the Hornets on Friday, shooting 7-of-12 from the field.

He was huge in the fourth quarter with nine points in the last five minutes alone. Lee added four assists, three rebounds, three steals, one block and two triples. He's now played well in four straight games and has been a new player since he got his starting job back, averaging 16.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.0 steal in that span. If you need help at guard, Lee is worth a glance while he's rolling.
Jan 27 - 10:03 PM

Courtney Lee scored a season-high 23 points on 9-of-13 shooting vs. Dallas, adding two 3-pointers, six rebounds, one assist, one block and just one turnover in 38 minutes.

Lee has scored 23, 14 and 13 points in his past three games. In the eight games prior to that, however, he never scored more than nine points. He's getting a bit of extra run with Lance Thomas (facial fracture) out of commission, but he's still just a borderline option best suited to 14-teams or deeper.
