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.

Date:

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.
Dec 26 - 11:56 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.
Dec 22 - 10:33 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.
Dec 20 - 11:47 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.
Dec 20 - 2:10 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.
Dec 17 - 11:40 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.
Dec 16 - 2:46 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.
Dec 13 - 4:02 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.
Dec 10 - 12:18 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.

Dec 8 - 11:56 AM

Cory Joseph played 33 minutes in a start on Saturday with 18 points, four rebounds, five assists, one steal and no turnovers.

Not turning the ball over is a good way to get on coach Gregg Popovich's good side. Joseph should be able to play minutes in the 30s while Tony Parker (hamstring) is out, which would give him start-worthy value in most leagues. It doesn't sound like Parker will be out for too long, so Joseph is just a short-term add.
Dec 7 - 12:44 AM

Cory Joseph scored 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting with three rebounds and one steal in 23 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Tony Parker left the game with a hamstring injury and is day-to-day, so Joseph could have some appeal as a spot-starter in daily leagues. Manu Ginobili would also pick up extra ballhandling duties if Parker misses any time.
Dec 6 - 2:00 AM

Cory Joseph did his job in the starting lineup on Monday with 14 points, eight rebounds, six assists and three turnovers in 34 minutes.

He was aggressive with the ball and did a solid job on the glass, as well. Tony Parker (ribs) shouldn't be out for another game, but he'll rest at some point. Joseph would be a decent guy to use in daily on days Parker sits.
Dec 1 - 10:33 PM

Cory Joseph will likely start and see big minutes against the 76ers on Monday.

Tony Parker and Tim Duncan are sitting this one out and Joseph will be the only healthy point guard on the roster, and should be backed up by Manu Ginobili. Joseph is getting over an ankle sprain and he's only played 13.5 minutes per game after the one-week hiatus, but should see more than double that tonight and is a solid plug-and-play/cheap daily play.
Dec 1 - 2:08 PM

Cory Joseph (ankle) returned to action on Friday, scoring three points on 1-of-3 shooting with two rebounds and one assist in 10 minutes.

Unless you're in a 20-team league you can ignore Joseph's return.
