Courtney Lee scored 17 points against the Rockets during a 102-93 win over on Wednesday, adding one rebound, two assists and two steals in 27 minutes.
Revenge game from a guy who played in Houston back in 2010-12? Lee has taken advantage of Jeff Green and Matt Barnes moving up a position, which has raised his minutes while Zach Randolph (knee) has been out. Z-Bo should be back soon and Lee just had a goose egg on Tuesday, so he's not a strong add. Nov 26 - 1:27 AM

Courtney Lee scored 15 points during a 92-82 loss to the Spurs on Saturday, adding one rebound, two steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

He's seen an uptick in playing time in his past two, but that's because Zach Randolph (knee) has been out and the small forwards have shifted to power forward more to open up wing minutes for him. Lee isn't a strong pickup and snapped a seven-game streak of failing to score more than seven points.
Nov 22 - 12:19 AM

Courtney Lee played 17 minutes against the Thunder on Monday with six points, one rebound, two assists and one turnover.

He's seen his playing time take a big dive. Jeff Green is playing well and Mario Chalmers is also taking minutes away from Lee. He can be dropped in most formats.
Nov 17 - 12:10 AM

Courtney Lee made 1-of-7 from the field against the Warriors on Wednesday with three points, six boards, one assist, three steals and two blocks.

The defense is very nice, but Lee is slumping on offense. When he is on, he's a very strong player to own. However, in his last three, he's made just 5-of-23 (21.7 percent) from the field. If there's a hot free agent out there, feel free to dump Lee and maybe give him a look once he starts to heat up again.
Nov 11 - 11:14 PM

Courtney Lee scored 18 points against the Blazers on Thursday with two rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers.

He's a hot-and-cold player and the arrow is pointing up right now. Lee has two good games in a row and the Grizzlies really need a shooter out there. He's certainly capable of being a mid-round guy for weeks at a time, but there are a lot of obstacles in his way with the added depth on Memphis. If you have someone to cut, give him a look.
Nov 6 - 2:03 AM

Courtney Lee scored 10 points with two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one turnover in 29 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday.

Lee was very good before the break last season, but he really disappeared in the last two months and wasn't worth owning. The addition of Matt Barnes is just another hurdle for his playing time for a guy who has averaged a usage rate of just 16.6 in his career. He's not a strong own right now.
Oct 29 - 11:07 PM

Courtney Lee bruised his right knee after banging knees with Jeff Teague on Wednesday, but he said after the game that he'll be fine.

"I'm a little sore. But I'm OK," Lee said. "I'll be trying to get back out there [Thursday]." He was in visible pain as he left the court but fortunately it's not a serious injury, and it doesn't sound as though he even required X-rays. We're leaving him off the injury report. C-Lee finished the game with 10 points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes.
Oct 22 - 12:11 AM

Courtney Lee led the Grizzlies with 18 points on 6-of-12 shooting vs. the Wolves, including a 3-of-4 mark from downtown.

C-Lee continues to hold down the starting SG spot and he should maintain last season's steady averages -- 10.1 points, 1.2 threes, 2.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steals. His percentages are also solid, and he rarely misses games, boosting him into late-round contention for 8-cat and 9-cat owners.
Oct 18 - 9:16 PM

Courtney Lee started at shooting guard and had 11 points and two 3-pointers in 13 minutes of Tuesday's preseason win over the Rockets.

Lee and Jeff Green look like the starters on the wings for Memphis and if that holds true for the regular season, Tony Allen is going to be tough to own this season.
Oct 7 - 12:18 AM

Courtney Lee dropped 20 points in Wednesday's Game 5 win over the Blazers, adding one board, one assist and two steals in 35 minutes.

Lee is on fire right now, and he has now scored 18 or more points in each of his last four games. The Grizzlies desperately need Lee's scoring punch right now with Jeff Green slumping, and owners in daily leagues should take notice while he is this hot. For what it's worth, Lee shot 65.9 percent from the filed in the series, so his numbers will eventually come back down to earth.
Apr 30 - 12:59 AM

Courtney Lee made 8-of-11 from the field for 19 points against the Blazers on Monday with two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

That's a very efficient game with so much playing time. The Grizzlies are even drawing up plays for Lee down the stretch now due to how well he's playing. In his last three, he averaged 19.0 points, 3.0 boards, 1.3 steals and 1.3 treys on 70.0 percent from the field. He won't be this good and it's still hard to count on him based on his somewhat small usage rate this season.
Apr 28 - 1:08 AM

Courtney Lee scored an impressive 20 points vs. the Blazers on Saturday, adding five boards, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

Lee was an efficient 5-of-8 from the field tonight and also connected on all nine of his free throws. He was coming off an 18-point performance in Game 2 on Wednesday, and it looks like he chose the right time to hit his stride with a potential matchup with the Warriors on the horizon.
Apr 26 - 1:44 AM

Courtney Lee made both of his 3-point attempts during Sunday's 100-86 win, finishing with nine points, three rebounds and two assists in 29 minutes.

It doesn't look like much but C-Lee's perimeter shooting is critical for the Grizzlies, who averaged a mere 5.2 three-pointers made this season (29th in the NBA ahead of only the Timberwolves). When they made at least as many 3-pointers as their opponents they had a 22-1 record, but they won on Sunday partly by holding Portland to 30.8 percent shooting from deep.
Apr 19 - 10:50 PM

Courtney Lee scored 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds and three steals in Friday's win over the Jazz.

Lee is starting to heat up and he might be able to keep it up with so many of his teammates banged up. Give him a look for his shooting guard stats.
Apr 11 - 3:49 AM

Courtney Lee scored eight points with four assists, two steals and two turnovers in 35 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

Jeff Green (back) went down tonight and Tony Allen (hamstring) doesn't look close to a return. Lee isn't a high usage guy, but he should see an uptick should Green miss time. Give him a look if you're looking for a well-rounded player to add.
