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.
Oct 9 - 9:58 PM

Pacers GM Kevin Pritchard said he hopes to sign Cory Joseph to a long-term contract extension.

Indiana acquired Joesph via a sign-and-trade for C.J. Miles earlier this month. The Pacers also signed Darren Collison in July, and Collison is expected to be named the starter. However, Collison only has a partial guarantee on his contract for the 2018-19 campaign. As far as next season is concerned, it is difficult to project either Joseph or Collison as reliable fantasy contributors, as they will likely split time fair evenly at point guard.
Jul 18 - 9:20 AM

Cory Joseph will join the Pacers in exchange for C.J. Miles as part of a sign-and-trade.

The Pacers recently signed Darren Collison to a two-year deal, so Joseph will likely be a backup for his new team. He averaged 9.3 points, 3.3 assists, 2.9 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 0.6 triples in 25.0 minutes per game last season, so his upside isn't great anyways. As for Toronto, Delon Wright should be the heavy favorite to back up Kyle Lowry and could have some sneaky value next season.
Jul 9 - 1:37 PM

According to Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders, the Raptors have discussed a deal that would send Cory Joseph to the Pacers.

It's not clear what Indiana would get back in this scenario, but it could just be a salary dump for Toronto. The Pacers are in desperate need of a point guard and the Raptors could use the cap space to help them re-sign Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka, so this could make sense for both sides. Joseph would likely be the starter in Indiana based on their current roster, so he would gain a lot of value if this deal goes down. If Joseph is moved and Lowry stays in Toronto, Delon Wright would likely open the 2017-18 season as the backup PG for the Raptors.
Jul 2 - 11:10 AM

Cory Joseph had a 20-point, 12-assist double-double during Sunday's Game 4 loss to the Cavs, to go with six rebounds, one 3-pointer, one steal and two turnovers in 40 minutes.

Joseph got his points efficiently, going 8-of-11 from the field and 3-of-3 from the stripe for an impressive 81.2 true shooting percentage, but with him in the starting five, the Raptors didn't get much of anything from their second unit. Patrick Patterson was scoreless in 10 minutes off the bench and Norman Powell went 3-of-10 from the field for 10 points, six boards, one assist, two triples and three turnovers in his 24 minutes with the second unit.
May 7 - 6:33 PM

Cory Joseph made a start for Kyle Lowry (ankle) and did not play well in a loss to the Cavs, making 2-of-12 from the field for four points with three rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and no turnovers in 33 minutes.

He wasn't doing much on the offense end as the offense went through DeMar DeRozan and even Norman Powell. DeRozan was also able to find Joseph for several wide-open treys, but CoJo couldn't knock them down. If Lowry can't play again on Sunday, expect Joseph to get minutes in the 30s. Joseph has not been very good during the postseason.
May 5 - 9:50 PM

Cory Joseph is starting at point guard for Kyle Lowry on Friday in Game 3.

That's obviously not a good sign for Lowry, who was limping during warmups. There's a decent chance Lowry doesn't play in this game, so we might see some extra Delon Wright.
May 5 - 6:59 PM

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.
Apr 24 - 9:49 PM

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.
