Cory Joseph hit 6-of-9 shots for 14 points, two rebounds and three assists in just 18 minutes on Wednesday.
He's going to play the role of Patty Mills (shoulder surgery) for much of the season and is worthy of deep-sleeper attention in some leagues. Oct 22 - 11:52 PM

Cory Joseph scored 14 points in the starting lineup during a 111-108 overtime loss to the Heat, adding five rebounds, three assists and one turnover.

With Patty Mills (shoulder) out until January, Joseph is going to get minutes. He's not worth drafting now, but will be worth a look should Tony Parker, who rested tonight, miss games.
Oct 19 - 12:00 AM

Coach Gregg Popovich confirmed that Cory Joseph will be his backup point guard to start the season.

Patty Mills (shoulder) is targeting a return to the lineup in January, which gives Joseph a huge chance to show what he can do. He shot a very impressive 51.1 percent on his shots inside the arc and isn't bad at getting to the line, so he has some potential should Tony Parker need to miss time. He'll likely be a solid starter in daily leagues a handful of times this season.
Oct 1 - 2:23 PM

Cory Joseph started at PG on Tuesday in place of Tony Parker (back), scoring 13 points on 4-of-5 FGs and 5-of-8 FTs.

CoJo added two assists and three steals to pacify owners, but he was limited to just 20 minutes of action as the Spurs got blown out in Minnesota. Patty Mills added eight points without any assists in 22 minutes, and Marco Belinelli had just three points in 26 minutes, but all three reserve guards could see heavy playing time with Tony Parker (sprained back) and Manu Ginobili (bruised calf) iffy to play on Thursday or Friday.
Apr 8 - 10:47 PM

Cory Joseph is expected to start in place of Tony Parker (back) on Tuesday against the Timberwolves.

This is not a surprise and we're still thinking Patty Mills has a better chance for a big game tonight, but you just never know with Gregg Popovich. In the last six games Parker has missed this season, Mills is averaging more than 16 points, despite coming off the bench in most of them.
Apr 8 - 12:06 PM

Cory Joseph started in place of Tony Parker (Achilles) on Monday, playing 35 minutes with 12 points, seven boards, five assists, two steals and two turnovers.

Garbage time was also a factor for Joseph matching his season high in minutes and setting a career high in boards. Parker should be back in the lineup on Wednesday and Joseph will likely go back to his role of 8.4 minutes per game off the bench.
Mar 25 - 1:35 AM

Cory Joseph started for Tony Parker (back) and hit 4-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, four rebounds, five assists and three steals in Wednesday's win.

Patty Mills was solid with 16 points and three 3-pointers off the bench, and is a more reliable option than Joseph on nights when Parker is out.
Feb 12 - 10:33 PM

Cory Jospeh will start against the Celtics on Wednesday.

Tony Parker is going to sit this one out and the Spurs will have to use a combination of ball handlers to fill the void. Joseph hasn't been very effective in his 11 previous starts, averaging 8.4 points, 2.5 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.5 triples, so he's not necessarily a strong play based on the starting distinction. Patty Mills being a high-volume guy off the bench might be a better play in a pinch.
Feb 12 - 6:21 PM

Cory Joseph scored a team-high 18 points against the Nets during a 103-89 loss on Thursday, adding four boards, three assists, four steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

He has been in the starting lineup for the decimated Spurs and put up a season-high in points. Joseph has usually been in the lineup for some continuity and doesn't usually get this much playing time, so those taking a look at him should not overreact to one of his best lines ever.
Feb 6 - 10:55 PM

Cory Joseph drew the start against the Hawks on Friday during a 105-79 win, playing 31 minutes with eight points, six boards, three assists, two steals and one turnover.

He started the third quarter on Wednesday after the Kawhi Leonard injury, so it's not a surprise to see him start. While starting is nice, it's never easy for fantasy owners to trust Greg Popovich with any sort of role player. Joseph is only worth a look in deeper leagues for now.
Jan 24 - 11:43 PM

Cory Joseph will start against the Hawks on Friday night.

He started the third quarter on Wednesday and this move isn't really a surprise. Joseph joins Tony Parker, Marco Belinelli, Tim Duncan and Jeff Ayres in the starting lineup. Fantasy owners can ignore Joseph for the most part and Manu Ginobili should get some more playing time. Belinelli is also a beneficiary of Kawhi Leonard's hand injury.
Jan 24 - 7:31 PM

Making a rare start at PG in place of Tony Parker (shin) on Sunday, Cory Joseph notched 12 points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds and three assists in 26 minutes.

Parker's injury isn't serious and he's expected back for San Antonio's next game, so this has no lasting repercussions. CoJo's fantasy relevance is constrained to the deepest of leagues.
Jan 19 - 9:32 PM

Cory Joseph will start against the Bucks on Sunday.

This isn't a surprising move from the Spurs and they've used Joseph as a starter before this season. Even though he will start, Patty Mills is the guy who will likely have more play-making responsibilities. Tony Parker shouldn't miss much time with his shin injury.
Jan 19 - 5:36 PM

Cory Joseph (illness) will not play against the Raptors on Monday.

He has a stomach bug and the Spurs will have to count on Patty Mills to back up Tony Parker. Joseph has fallen behind Mills and isn't worth owning in almost any league.
Mon, Dec 23, 2013 06:49:00 PM

Cory Joseph got the start at point guard for the Spurs on Wednesday, but had just four points and zero assists on 2-of-5 shooting.

Patty Mills ended up being the best point guard for the Spurs tonight, coming off the bench for 12 points, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on 4-of-10 shots in the win. Tony Parker's shin injury will keep him out again in the next one, and while there are no guarantees, the smart money is on Mills to be the most productive point guard for the Spurs again.
