Cory Joseph (sore left shoulder) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Thunder.
Darren Collison (sore knee) is also questionable to play on Wednesday, and if both those guys are out, we could see Victor Oladipo shift over to point guard with Lance Stephenson moving into the starting five and there would be more minutes available for Joe Young. Check back for another update on Joseph following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Dec 12 - 3:03 PM

Date:

Cory Joseph made a fill-in start on Sunday, going 1-of-7 from the field for two points, five assists and three rebounds in a 126-116 win vs. the Nuggets.

Darren Collison (knee) was out tonight, which gave Joseph his first start of the season. He wound up playing 31 minutes, which matched his season-high, but owners targeting him with DC out were disappointed -- he didn't have any 3-pointers, steals or blocks, and Lance Stephenson actually benefited the most tonight.
Dec 10 - 8:50 PM

Cory Joseph will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Nuggets, with Darren Collison (knee) unavailable.

Joseph has been on a hot streak over the past three with averages of 10.3 points, 3.0 assists, 1.3 steals, 1.7 triples and just 0.7 turnovers per game in 25.3 minutes per contest, so he'll make for a solid streamer or DFS punt play tonight with his minutes likely to increase to the mid-30s. Victor Oladipo will also likely have the rock in his hands more often sans Collison.
Dec 10 - 3:36 PM

Cory Joseph (shoulder) will play against the Cavs on Friday.

He was questionable for Wednesday and was very good with seven points in 31 minutes. Expect him to play minutes in the upper 20s today, but he doesn't really have potent stat lines for fantasy.
Dec 8 - 5:23 PM

Cory Joseph (sore left shoulder) is listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. Cleveland.

Joseph popped up on the injury report prior to Wednesday's game, but he looked fine in that one and even played 31 minutes, his second-highest total of the season. Lance Stephenson and Darren Collison should absorb most of CoJo's minutes if he is ruled out.

Cory Joseph (sore left shoulder) didn't miss a beat on Wednesday with seven points, three rebounds, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

Joseph played 31 minutes, which is the second time all year he's hit the 30-mark, so it's safe to say he didn't have restrictions. For fantasy purposes he's just a steals-and-threes specialist, with a trickle of points and dimes.
Dec 6 - 10:33 PM

Cory Joseph (shoulder) will play against the Bulls on Wednesday.

He avoids the game-time decision tag, so he should be all set for his normal role. Joseph plays the backup point guard minutes and does get some wing minutes on occasion, but he doesn't have much upside.
Dec 6 - 5:19 PM

Cory Joseph (sore left shoulder) is questionable to play Wednesday against the Bulls.

It's unclear exactly when Joseph suffered this shoulder injury, but it wouldn't be all that surprising to see him get the night off against the worst team in the Eat. If he's out, his minutes will likely be divvied up between Joseph Young, Lance Stephenson and Darren Collison. Check back for another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround.

Cory Joseph finished with seven points, four rebounds, three assists and a steal across 22 minutes off the bench Friday in Toronto.

The Raptors crowd gave Joseph a warm reception in his first game back in Toronto. The 26-year-old Canadian spent the past two seasons with the Raps, posting a career-high 9.3 PPG and 2.9 RPG across 80 games in 2016-17. In Indiana, he is not a terribly useful fantasy option unless something happens to force Victor Oladipo out of the lineup.
Dec 1 - 10:15 PM

Cory Joseph scored six points with three assists in 24 minutes against the Celtics on Saturday.

He does play some combo-guard minutes, but Joseph did not really get any extra run with the Victor Oladipo (knee) injury. He's not really the best add.
Nov 25 - 10:16 PM

Cory Joseph finished with 10 points, seven assists, four rebounds and three steals across 29 minutes off the bench in Saturday's win in Chicago.

Joseph has posted at least one triple in each of the past seven outings, and he has double-digit point totals in back-to-back games for the first time this season. Darren Collison had a terrible shooting night, so Joseph stepped up and filled the void. While he is coming off the bench, he has posted at least 20 minutes in each of his 13 outings this season.
Nov 10 - 10:57 PM

Cory Joseph tied his season-high with six assists vs. the Pistons, adding 11 points, one 3-pointer, three rebounds and one block in 29 minutes.

Joseph continues to get minutes alongside Darren Collison, which is big for his value, and you could do worse for an end-of-bench guard in 14-team leagues. He's played a minimum of 20 minutes in each game this season, and has at least three assists and one 3-pointer in all five November games.
Nov 8 - 9:54 PM

Cory Joseph scored a season-high 21 points on 8-of-11 shooting in Tuesday's blowout win over the Wolves, adding five rebounds, two assists, three steals and five 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

He did most of his damage in garbage time, scoring 10 points in the final 11 minutes. Joseph has been getting a good bit of run next to Darren Collison, but was averaging just 8.7 points and 2.0 assists in 24.0 minutes in his previous three games. This has fluke written all over it.
Oct 24 - 11:47 PM

Cory Joseph scored seven points with two assists and one turnover in 20 minutes against the Blazers on Friday.

He's playing behind Darren Collison for almost all of his minutes, which is a little different from how he played with Kyle Lowry in Toronto. Collison seems to have a good grasp on the offense and has been fairly durable in his career, so Joseph isn't the best stash.
Oct 20 - 10:00 PM

Cory Joseph turned the ball over six times in 14 minutes vs. the Pistons on Monday, finishing with 10 points, three assists, two rebounds, two steals and one triple.

Darren Collison has a firm grasp on the starting PG position and has run circles around Joseph so far. CoJo will also have to share the ball with Lance Stephenson in the second unit, so his fantasy arrow is pointing in the wrong direction.
