Omri Casspi will start at small forward in place of Chandler Parsons (wrist, hip) vs. the Pelicans on Saturday.
He played 22 minutes on Friday and will likely get minutes in the 20s again tonight. Casspi has a chance to score in the teens while hitting a couple treys, so he's a decent option for owners looking for something in that neighborhood. Apr 12 - 7:06 PM

Omri Casspi (illness) won't play against the Jazz on Monday.

He didn't play in three of the last four games, so the team is not going to miss him much. Casspi has very little fantasy value in even an extremely deep league.
Mar 17 - 8:17 PM

Omri Casspi played 15 minutes off the bench on Saturday vs. the Pistons with 16 points, three boards, two assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

He had a very minor elbow injury in this game, but he shot the subsequent free throws and it didn't seem to bother him for much more than one minute. Casspi stepped up tonight with Chandler Parsons sitting out due to an illness and has been helpful for the Rockets when they're short on bodies. Parsons should be ready for Tuesday, so there's no need to add Casspi.
Mar 1 - 11:31 PM

Omri Casspi cooled off after a 20 and 12 night on Wednesday, scoring just five points with two rebounds in 18 minutes off the bench on Friday.

This was to be expected with Terrence Jones coming back and even if Jones hadn't played tonight it would've been tough for Casspi to keep it going. He can stay on the wire in most formats.
Jan 25 - 3:25 AM

Omri Casspi hit 9-of-15 shots and two 3-pointers for 20 points and 12 rebounds in Wednesday's win.

Casspi is not a must-own player and scored a total of six points in three games before breaking loose for 15 and 20 in his last two. The absence of Terrence Jones (thigh) is clearly a factor in his explosion, but Casspi has shown signs of breaking out at times throughout the season. Just keep an eye on him, and look for him to fade again once Jones is back from his injury.
Jan 23 - 12:58 AM

Omri Casspi was productive off the bench during Monday's 126-113 win over the Blazers with 15 points, eight boards, two assists and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He played some minutes as a stretch four through the season, but that hasn't been very common due to the breakout of Terrence Jones. Considering Jones' thigh bruise is not serious, fantasy owners can keep Casspi on the wire in most formats.
Jan 21 - 12:20 AM

Omri Casspi played 23 minutes off the bench on Monday with 12 points, six boards, three assists and three 3-pointers.

He had a chance to get some run at small forward with Chandler Parsons out, but he squandered the opportunity. Casspi will continue to serve as a stretch four behind Terrence Jones and won't have much fantasy value.
Jan 14 - 12:10 AM

Omri Casspi bounced back from Friday's scoreless outing, leading Houston's reserves with 14 points and two 3-pointers in an easy win vs. the Wizards on Saturday.

It stands to reason that Casspi will get more minutes and touches with Chandler Parsons (hamstring, calf) out of the lineup. Unfortunately, he only played 18 minutes tonight and he tends to follow up strong games with a sequence of duds. With Parsons day-to-day, fantasy owners shouldn't be rushing to pluck Casspi off the free agent pile.
Jan 11 - 10:38 PM

Omri Casspi came off the bench for 14 points, seven rebounds, a steal and two 3-pointers on 6-of-13 shooting in Wednesday's loss.

Francisco Garcia got the start for Chandler Parsons, who missed his second straight game with a sore back, but had just eight points and two 3-poitners on 3-of-9 shooting. Once Parsons is back both Casspi and Garcia will go back to being hit-or-miss fantasy options. Either player could go off on any given night, but could also do next to nothing, making both of them tough to own, and even tougher to throw into fantasy lineups.

Omri Casspi played 30 minutes against the Jazz on Monday and had 13 points, six boards, two steals and two 3-pointers.

The 30 minutes were a season high and coach Kevin McHale went with Casspi as a stretch four quite a bit tonight. This move may have been motivated by Chandler Parsons not being active, so it's hard to get too excited about picking Casspi up based on this line alone.
Tue, Dec 3, 2013 01:28:00 AM

Omri Casspi scored 16 points off the bench on Monday, hitting 4-of-6 shots (2-of-3 3PTs, 6-of-6 FTs) with three rebounds and one steal in 23 minutes.

Casspi has been a low-end contributor in 14-16 team formats and all this will do is raise his value, but it's still hard to put much faith in his limited role right now. Just know what his baseline production is right now and be ready to move in standard formats if his role expands.
Mon, Nov 25, 2013 11:57:00 PM

Omri Casspi scored five points on 2-of-8 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds and one steal in 17 minutes off the bench on Saturday.

Despite coming off the bench for just 21.4 minutes per game, Casspi has been able to hold low-end value in 14-16 team leagues on averages of 8.2 points, 1.2 threes, 4.0 boards and 1.0 steals per game. Consider that food for thought if he ever steps into a more substantial role.
Sat, Nov 23, 2013 10:32:00 PM

Omri Casspi came off the bench for 16 points, two rebounds, one assist, two steals, a block and two 3-pointers on 7-of-13 shooting in Wednesday's OT loss.

Casspi has been up and down all season, but had a good line tonight. He'll be inconsistent going forward and clearly benefitted from the absence of James Harden. He's probably better left on waivers given his inconsistency, but is also worth keeping an eye on after he had a big preseason.
Wed, Nov 13, 2013 11:03:00 PM

Omri Casspi (knee) logged 26 minutes in Monday's double-overtime win, scoring five points on 1-of-4 shooting (no threes) with six rebounds, four assists, one steal, and one block.

If Casspi could do this every night his shot wasn't falling then he'd be owned in most formats, but the fact is that he can't be counted on for the defensive numbers and in general he needs to heat up before he can be relied upon in standard formats. That said, we're pretty sure his name is getting called around here sometime down the road.

Omri Casspi (knee) said he's playing against the Raptors.

He was expected to play and this report confirms he'll be active. Casspi's minutes have dropped in each of his last two games, so he's a dicey play even in a four-game week.
