Cory Joseph played five minutes with no stats on Friday.
He would have been a DNP-CD if not for garbage time. With Kawhi Leonard, Patty Mills and Manu Ginobili now back, the Spurs aren't going to need Joseph. He can be cut almost everywhere. Jan 17 - 12:49 AM

Cory Joseph moved to a bench role with Tony Parker (hamstring) healthy on Tuesday, notching seven points, four rebounds, four assists and one block in 27 minutes.

Joseph has been a sneaky fantasy option for the past month and is worth deploying as long as he's logging 25+ minutes per game. Parker logged only 13 minutes before taking a seat on Tuesday, however, and CoJo's owners should expect a steady reduction in his role as Parker and Patty Mills (six points in 21 minutes) see an uptick in playing time.
Jan 6 - 11:23 PM

Cory Joseph made 8-of-10 from the field for 19 points in a 101-92 victory over the Wizards on Saturday with four rebounds, four assists and two blocks.

Tony Parker could get back on the court on Tuesday, so this might be the grand finale for Joseph in the starting lineup. He's been very good and the Spurs are certainly going to be more cautious with Parker knowing they can count on Joseph to fill in. If you have Joseph, you can consider cutting him for a hot free agent.
Jan 4 - 1:20 AM

Cory Joseph played 24 minutes in another start, but had just nine points, three rebounds and zero assists on 4-of-9 shooting in Wednesday's overtime win.

Patty Mills played 29 minutes and hit 3-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for seven points, two rebounds, three assists and a steal, as Tony Parker sat out yet another game with a hamstring injury. Maybe Gregg Popovich was giving Joseph a rest, or maybe he's ready to give Mills the reins while Parker is out. We still don't know when Parker will play again, but the recent return of Mills is officially a concern about Joseph's minutes and production going forward. Let's see what happens on Saturday against the Wizards before potentially burying Joseph.

Spurs PG Cory Joseph made 9-of-13 shots in a losing effort on Tuesday, finishing with 18 points, three boards, three assists, three steals and four turnovers in 31 minutes.

An MRI on Tony Parker's hamstring came back negative but he doesn't have a timetable to return and the Spurs will be cautious with their former Finals MVP, so Joseph should see at least a few more starts this week. Joseph has been a mid-round value over the Spurs' past eight games, due primarily to his rebounds (4.6), assists (4.3) and steals (1.3), not to mention excellent percentages. He's worth deploying for short-term value in 8-cat and 9-cat leagues.

Cory Joseph was terrific as the Spurs' starting PG on Sunday, notching 14 points, one 3-pointer, six rebounds, four assists and one steal in a wild home win vs. the Rockets.

His performance was doubly impressive since it came against the elite defense of Patrick Beverley. He's been excellent all month and should have carved out a reliable spot in the Spurs' rotation all season, but fantasy owners should keep a very close eye on his playing time during the first few weeks of January -- Tony Parker's recent MRI came back negative and Patty Mills (shoulder) made his season debut on Sunday, threatening Joseph's long-term value.

Cory Joseph made 8-of-9 from the field for 20 points against the Pelicans on Friday with three rebounds, five assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

His only miss tonight was a block from Anthony Davis. The Spurs are going to give Tony Parker an extended break, so Joseph likely has a handful of starts coming his way. Patty Mills (shoulder) could also be back in the next few weeks, so his fantasy value certainly has an expiration date. However, he should be worth owning in standard leagues for the next 1-3 weeks.
Fri, Dec 26, 2014 11:56:00 PM

Cory Joseph has played at least 30 minutes in 10 of the Spurs' 12 games this month while Tony Parker (hamstring) recovers.

Joseph is averaging 11.7 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.9 assists on 48.3 percent shooting over nine games as a starter, and he's playing an average of 36 minutes in those contests. Joseph is expected to stay in the starting lineup for however long Parker is forced to miss with Patty Mills (shoulder) out until 2015. Joseph's stats won't jump off the page at you, but he's a steady, low-end contributor in your lineup while he has an opportunity. The Spurs are also encouraging him to shoot more, a sign that he has the trust of the coaching staff.
Mon, Dec 22, 2014 10:33:00 AM

Cory Joseph scored 14 points in 41 minutes during a 99-93 loss to the Mavericks on Saturday with six rebounds, two assists and two steals.

Tony Parker (hamstring) could miss additional time and Patty Mills (shoulder) is still at least a few weeks away, so Joseph does have some short-term value. Keep him in mind in deeper leagues.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 11:47:00 PM

Cory Joseph scored 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting with eight rebounds and seven assists over 43 minutes in Friday's triple-overtime loss to the Blazers.

Joseph has played admirably enough in fill-in duty for Tony Parker (hamstring) and this line was certainly aided by the extra minutes. He's worth a deep league look whenever Parker is out.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 02:10:00 AM

Cory Joseph is set to draw another start on Wednesday in the absence of Tony Parker (hamstring).

Parker currently doesn't have a timetable to return, so Joseph should start for the foreseeable future. In his last start for the Spurs, Joseph tallied 12 points, five boards, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes. He should also be in line for a few more assists on Wednesday, so this kind of production is worthy in most leagues.
Wed, Dec 17, 2014 11:40:00 AM

Cory Joseph scored 12 points against the Blazers on Monday with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

He's been solid in his previous five starts, averaging 12.2 points, 3.8 boards, 4.0 dimes, 0.6 blocks and 0.2 triples on 57.1 percent from the field. Tony Parker hasn't looked like himself since he had a hamstring injury, so there's a good chance Joseph gets another start on Wednesday.
Tue, Dec 16, 2014 02:46:00 AM

Cory Joseph played 35 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Lakers, scoring 16 points on 7-of-14 shooting (including a three) with four rebounds, five assists, four steals and one block.

Joseph has been getting a lot of run lately, averaging 28.9 mpg over his last eight contests with low-end value for 12-team leagues in that span. It's going to be hard to rely on him with so many moving parts in San Antonio, but he's worth a look in deeper formats while he's hot.
Sat, Dec 13, 2014 04:02:00 AM

Cory Joseph started for the Spurs on Tuesday but finished with only seven points and two blocks in 30 minutes of action.

Joseph didn't have a single rebound, assist or steal, and he only started because Tony Parker was out with a hamstring injury. As long as Parker is day-to-day there's no incentive to pluck CoJo off the waiver wire.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 12:18:00 AM

Cory Joseph said he's getting more confident on the court.

Joseph is averaging nearly 13 points on 53 percent shooting over his last four games, and Joseph attributes it to his comfort level. "The more minutes you get, the more comfortable and confident you get." If Tony Parker is forced to miss any significant time, Joseph would be a must-add, must-start player.
