Cory Joseph scored five points with two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 15 minutes against the Bucks on Thursday.
He's been pretty bad for basically the entire series, but Joseph may have hit the biggest shot of the game with a 3-pointer at the 1:27 mark in the fourth to break an 82-82 tie. He has made an impact against the Cavs before, so maybe not going against a team like the Bucks could get him going again. Apr 27 - 10:25 PM

Cory Joseph played through an illness in Monday's Game 6 win over the Bucks, finishing with 10 points, three boards, one assist and a triple.

He was pulling at his shirt in warmups and looked exhausted at times, and he's reportedly been dealing with this illness for most of the series. He was able to log 20 minutes in his usual role off the bench and finished 4-of-8 from the field, and he will be relieved to know that Game 6 isn't until Thursday. Kyle Lowry played through a back issue and seemed fine, so CoJo likely won't have a major impact in most fantasy leagues for now.

Cory Joseph is feeling a littler under the weather prior to Game 5 vs. the Bucks on Monday.

Joseph was at the morning shootaround and said he was "fine," so it doesn't sound like he's in any danger of sitting this one out. Kyle Lowry (back) did not go through shootaround and is probable to play, but CoJo would have a lot of DFS appeal if the All-Star PG is unable to give it a go.
Apr 24 - 11:25 AM

Cory Joseph played just eight minutes with three missed attempts from the field and two turnovers against the Bucks on Saturday.

Yeah, five ended possessions and no other stats isn't a great showing. He has been pretty bad in his 69 minutes during this series and eight minutes was probably too much today. In fact, his -22.3 net rating in that time is dead last while Norman Powell and Delon Wright are above the team average. Basically, Joseph's minutes should be going to Norm and Delon.
Apr 22 - 6:02 PM

Cory Joseph led Toronto's second unit on Wednesday with 15 points, five rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes of action.

Joseph performed admirably as a fill-in starter with Kyle Lowry (wrist) on the shelf, but Lowry's return tonight is a major threat to CoJo's fantasy value. His minutes and usage were safe tonight, however, and he's worth holding unless there's a very compelling free agent on the wire.
Apr 5 - 10:29 PM

Cory Joseph will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

Kyle Lowry (wrist surgery) is back in the starting five tonight, so Joseph's value figures to take a pretty massive hit. The Raptors don't have any back-to-back sets coming up either, so Lowry should be starting the rest of the way, making Joseph a potential cut candidate.
Apr 5 - 6:53 PM

Cory Joseph played a solid all-around game vs. Philly on Sunday with nine points, six assists, five rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

Kyle Lowry (wrist) was expected to miss 4-5 weeks after having surgery on Mar. 1. He's progressed to shooting with his right hand, and the five-week date lands on Apr. 5, so we could see him back sooner than later. CoJo will obviously take a big hit when that happens, but owners should continue deploying him until we've seen Lowry on the court.
Apr 2 - 8:41 PM

Fresh off a career performance, Cory Joseph notched 18 points on 8-of-14 shooting, seven rebounds, five assists, two steals, two blocks, two 3-pointers and just one turnover in 35 minutes.

Joseph dropped a personal-best 13 assists on Monday, as his team scored 131 points on 59.0 percent shooting, but even his terrific game tonight couldn't prevent a 110-106 home loss. The Raptors are 12-6 without Kyle Lowry, thanks largely to savvy trades, DeMar DeRozan's scoring, and Joseph's efforts as a fill-in starter. CoJo is red-hot, so you might as well keep him active.
Mar 30 - 12:01 AM

Cory Joseph recorded the first double-double of his NBA career with 15 points and 13 assists in Monday's easy win over Orlando.

The 13 assists were a career-high and he also added six rebounds, one block, one triple and five turnovers in 29 minutes. CoJo finished 6-of-10 from the field, but only hit 2-of-4 from the free throw line. The Raptors still haven't announced when Kyle Lowry (wrist) will return, so keep rolling CoJo out there with three more games on the schedule this week.
Mar 27 - 10:48 PM

Cory Joseph scored seven points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Heat on Thursday.

After a whopping 43 minutes on Tuesday, Joseph lost some minutes to Delon Wright in this win. This isn't the first time this has happened, but Wright hasn't really been able to string games together. Kyle Lowry went down 15 games ago and Joseph has barely held value in standard leagues over that span. Most owners will probably want to shoot a little higher, especially if Wright can get it going.
Mar 23 - 10:58 PM

Cory Joseph scored 19 points with two assists, one rebound, one steal and one triple vs. the Bulls on Tuesday.

He logged 43 minutes in the overtime win, shooting 6-of-11 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line. CoJo is only averaging 11.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 triples in his last 13 games since the All-Star break, but with Kyle Lowry's (wrist) timetable still up in the air, he's worth owning as a low-end guard.
Mar 21 - 11:15 PM

Cory Joseph scored 11 points to go along with a career-high nine assists, four rebounds, a steal and a blocked shots in 31 minutes Sunday against the Pacers.

Joseph misfired on just four of his nine field goal attempts while draining his only attempt from beyond the arc. His production has been rather erratic lately, as he entered with single-digit point totals in three of his past four outings. However, Sunday's stat line was nothing for fantasy owners to complain about. The career-high dimes were a treat, and he has six or more in each of his past three outings.
Mar 19 - 9:25 PM

Cory Joseph scored 11 points with two rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday.

The Raptors are losing grip on their home-court advanced in the first round and probably don't have any chance at a top-three seed. Joseph hasn't really done anything special with his starting role, averaging 11.6 points, 3.6 boards, 4.0 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.9 treys in his previous games this month. He has barely had standard-league value, so his owners shouldn't hold on too tightly if a hot free agent pops up. Dropping him for someone like Tyler Ulis is a no-brainer.
Mar 16 - 9:51 PM

Cory Joseph scored six points with three rebounds, one steal and two turnovers in 22 minutes against the Heat on Saturday.

After one of his best games on Friday, he had one of his worst games on Saturday. Since Joseph took over following the Kyle Lowry (elbow) injury, he's been a ninth-round guy and has been slightly disappointing along the way. In other words, he should be worth using this week with four games.
Mar 11 - 11:35 PM

Cory Joseph scored 15 points with two rebounds, eight assists, four steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

It was easily his best game since the Kyle Lowry injury. In his previous games since Lowry went down, Joseph only averaged 11.7 points, 3.4 boards, 4.7 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.7 treys. This was a very favorable matchup and the refs let him get away with some stuff, so there's no need to overreact to this line. He gets a much tougher matchup on Saturday in Miami.
