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. Dec 13 - 11:24 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.
Dec 9 - 10:34 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.
Dec 6 - 2:08 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.
Dec 3 - 11:52 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.
Nov 30 - 8:44 PM

Courtney Lee hit 4-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for 10 points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals on Wednesday.

The Lakers generally give it up to opposing guards, but Lee was simply mediocre tonight. Every time he starts rolling he's been slowed by an injury or illness, but he's on track to start putting up bigger numbers soon. Don't panic after his last couple bland performances.
Nov 27 - 2:50 AM

Courtney Lee (flu) was one of five players to return to action on Friday for the Grizzlies, but managed just five points on 2-of-5 shooting with two assists and a 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

Lee has been great this season and we're not about to dog him for tonight's one-sided and strange game. Look for him to get back on track against the Clippers on Sunday.
Nov 21 - 11:39 PM

Courtney Lee (illness) will start against the Celtics on Friday.

He is over his illness just in time for a revenge game. Lee has been phenomenal all season, but he's obviously not going to stay this hot.
Nov 21 - 7:55 PM

Courtney Lee (illness) went through shootaround and said that he'll play Friday vs. the Celtics.

With Tony Allen (illness), Beno Udrih (illness), and Quincy Pondexter (illness) listed as questionable for this one, Lee could see some heavy minutes tonight in a favorable matchup vs. the Celtics. Stay tuned.

Courtney Lee (illness) is questionable to play Friday vs. the Celtics.

Tony Allen, Beno Udrih, Kosta Koufos, Jon Leuer, Quincy Pondexter, and Jarnell Stokes are also being listed as questionable with the same illness, leaving the Grizzlies with six healthy bodies for Friday's game. Vince Carter would be in line for some heavy minutes if all seven players are unable to go, and he would make for a nice short-term option in standard leagues. Tayshaun Prince would also have some increased opportunity, while Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol would get all the minutes they can handle. Stay tuned.

The Grizzlies have ruled out Courtney Lee, Tony Allen, Beno Udrih, Kosta Koufos and Jon Leuer for Wednesday's game, as all of them have the flu.

Memphis has a 10-1 record but they'll be really tested with so many rotation players out vs. the Raptors. Quincy Pondexter emerges as a viable short-term option, as does Vince Carter -- the Raptors will be honoring him in Toronto tonight, giving him a bit of extra motivation.

Courtney Lee (illness) had to go to the hospital because he was so dehydrated but hopes to play on Wednesday against the Raptors.

The Grizzlies will be under the weather tonight and it's probably doubtful to see Lee suit up tonight. Considering it's an 11-game night, his fantasy owners will want to take him out of their lineups. Tayshaun Prince is likely to start, but Quincy Pondexter is the preferred play. Vince Carter could also have a season-high in minutes.

Courtney Lee (flu) is questionable for Wednesday's game against Toronto.

Tony Allen, Kosta Koufos, Beno Udrih, and Jon Leuer are also questionable with the same illness and things are not looking good for the Grizzlies at the moment. If they end up sitting this one out, expect to see a lot of Vince Carter and Quincy Pondexter while rookies Jarnell Stokes and Jordan Adams could get in on the action. Stay tuned.

Courtney Lee will start on Monday against the Rockets.

We're not sure what the Tayshaun Prince experiment was all about, but it never really impacted Lee's value anyway. He should be in all lineups at least until he cools off.
Nov 17 - 7:54 PM

Courtney Lee will once again come off the bench for the Grizzlies on Saturday, while Tayshaun Prince will draw another start.

Lee's owners shouldn't panic, as the Grizzlies may just want a spark off of the bench. Prince started on Thursday but scored just two points in 11 minutes, so owners should ignore him in almost all leagues, while Lee's owners should continue deploying him as usual.
