Courtney Lee scored 19 points vs. Portland on Sunday, making 6-of-8 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs with a pair of 3-pointers, three rebounds, three assists and one steal.
C-Lee didn't commit a single turnover in 30 minutes and this was an unexpected bonus for deep-league owners who started him despite his recent struggles. Lee didn't score in his last outing and he's scored double-digit points just three times in his past eight games. Jeff Green's arrival in Memphis has scuttled C-Lee's promising start to the season and he's best suited to the waiver wire in standard leagues. Feb 22 - 11:47 PM

Courtney Lee did not score against the Thunder on Wednesday with two fouls and no other stats.

His numbers look pretty bad over his last five, averaging 7.4 points, 2.0 boards, 1.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.6 treys on 39.5 percent from the field. He's seen a decrease since the team picked up Jeff Green, so his fantasy owners shouldn't be too attached if there's something promising on the wire.
Feb 11 - 11:11 PM

Courtney Lee scored 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting (including a three) with one rebound, one assist and two steals on Friday.

Lee has a fairly fantasy friendly game and he can get going in a hurry, but he has been slumping lately and isn't a must own player. He gets added consideration in 9-cat formats.
Feb 7 - 2:13 AM

Courtney Lee hit just 1-of-4 shots for two points, five rebounds, one assist and one steal in Wednesday's win.

Lee hasn't scored more than seven points in his last three games and is averaging just 7.8 points and 0.8 3-pointers over his last five. If you're wondering why he's sitting on your waiver wire, here's your answer.
Feb 5 - 1:54 AM

Courtney Lee was quiet in Monday's win, scoring just six points on 2-of-4 shooting with one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block in 32 minutes.

A top-100 value on the year, Lee has been a borderline player to own in 8-cat leagues for the last month and a solid late-round value in 9-cat formats. He's going to look like a dead man walking on many nights, but his game translates to fantasy very well in standard formats.
Feb 3 - 3:16 AM

Courtney Lee scored 11 points in 26 minutes against the Magic during a 103-94 win on Monday with two rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers.

The Grizzlies are shuffling their starting unit with Lee, Jeff Green and Tony Allen (ankle), but with Allen out it was easily going to be the Lee-Green combo. Lee does have some intrigue for his per-minute value, but he's not a must-own player.
Jan 26 - 11:32 PM

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

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.
