E'Twaun Moore scored 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting in Monday's loss to the Pacers.
Moore had the hot hand off the bench for the second game in a row after scoring 16 points vs. the Bulls in his previous outing. He added three rebounds, two blocks, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes, but he's likely going to be an afterthought once Tyreke Evans' restrictions are lifted or when Jrue Holiday finds his form. He's only worth monitoring in deeper leagues for now. Jan 16 - 7:57 PM

Date:

E'Twaun Moore scored 16 points with one rebound, two assists and four 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

Revenge game? Moore was red hot early and that start carried him for late minutes over Buddy Hield. Moore only played 19 minutes on Thursday and scored 6.8 points per game in his previous January outings, so we'll need to see him do it again.
Jan 14 - 7:30 PM

E'Twaun Moore scored 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting vs. the Knicks on Friday with four rebounds, two assists and two triples in 27 minutes.

Despite the return of Tyreke Evans, Moore's minutes have actually been safe and he's seen an average of 22.2 minutes over his last five games. He's only averaging 9.6 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.6 3-pointers in that span, so he's strictly a deep-league asset. Evans' workload is expected to rise in the new year, so it remains to be seen if Moore will still be a big part of the rotation.

E'Twaun Moore moved back to the bench against the 76ers on Tuesday with 15 points, two assists and two 3-pointers in 18 minutes.

He played well on the offensive side, making 6-of-7 from the field in the win. Moore looks to have the inside track for the backup wing minutes with Langston Galloway getting a DNP-CD on Tuesday. Still, Tyreke Evans didn't play tonight, so Moore's playing time should remain fairly low.

E'Twaun Moore will return to the bench for Tuesday's game against the 76ers.

Moore drew the start on Friday with Solomon Hill (personal) away from the team, but Hill is back in the starting five tonight, which will prompt Moore to return to the bench. The Pelicans will go with a starting lineup of Jrue Holiday, Buddy Hield, Hill, Anthony Davis and Alexis Ajinca for Tuesday night's game. Moore is too inconsistent to warrant a standard league roster spot.

E'Twaun Moore scored eight points in a start against the Rockets on Friday with three rebounds, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

He just isn't playing well right now. With Tyreke Evans (rest) ready to return for the next one, Moore's playing time should take a hit. He's a drop in most leagues.

E'Twaun Moore will start for Solomon Hill (personal) on Friday night against the Rockets.

The Pelicans are razor thin at small forward, so they'll be rolling with a slew of three-guard lineups with Moore, Langston Galloway and Buddy Hield. Moore has been awful lately, so he's a risky player to use. Hill should be back after only missing one game.
Fri, Dec 16, 2016 08:01:00 PM

E'Twaun Moore played 18 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday with one point, two assists, and one steal.

The playing time continues to drop for Moore. Tyreke Evans coming back and Buddy Hield going off really hurt him, so he may not even have value while Tim Frazier (wrist) is out. Moore is a drop candidate in most leagues.

E'Twaun Moore (toe) finished Sunday's overtime win vs. Phoenix with nine points, two 3-pointers, two rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes.

Moore came off the bench behind a starting backcourt of Jrue Holiday and Buddy Hield. Head coach Alvin Gentry tends to take a hot-hand approach with his backcourt, especially now that they're near full strength, and the situation will only get messier once Tyreke Evans (knee) gets back on the court. Moore isn't worth owning outside of deep leagues.

E’Twaun Moore (toe) will return to action Sunday night against the Suns after missing three games.

Moore is averaging 26.6 minutes, 11.1 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per game this season. He remains a viable option in deeper formats, and his return should cut into the playing time of Langston Galloway and Buddy Hield.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 07:19:00 PM

E'Twaun Moore (toe) is listed as probable for Sunday's game vs. the Suns.

He's on track to return from a three-game absence along with Jrue Holiday (toe). Moore usually plays minutes in the 20s and has season averages of 11.1 points, 3.1 assists, 2.3 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 1.0 triple on 45.4 percent shooting. He's a low-end pickup with Tyreke Evans (knee) nearing a return.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 02:31:00 PM

E'Twaun Moore (toe) will not play on Saturday vs. the Clippers.

This is his third game in a row on the shelf and it probably means he won't play on Sunday vs. the Suns as well. Buddy Hield will start at SG, but Langston Galloway is the better play in fantasy.
Sat, Dec 10, 2016 09:12:00 PM

E'Twaun Moore (toe) is unlikely to play Saturday vs. the Clippers.

Thus, there will be plenty of playing time up for grabs in the Pels backcourt. Tim Frazier will likely start at the point. Buddy Hield has started at shooting guard in each of the last two games, but it has been Langston Galloway that has been the more reliable fantasy player. Galloway is averaging 22.5 points and 4.5 treys over the Pels last two contests.
Fri, Dec 9, 2016 01:56:00 PM

E'Twaun Moore (toe) will not play on Thursday against the 76ers.

That's his second straight DNP. With Moore out, Buddy Hield should get more run at shooting guard while Langston Galloway and Tim Frazier could run some two-guard combos. Plus, this should help Solomon Hill pick up extra run at the three to help offset the loss of wing depth.
Thu, Dec 8, 2016 06:30:00 PM

E'Twaun Moore (toe) is questionable for Thursday's game vs. the 76ers.

He's in danger of missing his second straight game, but he is day-to-day. Buddy Hield would be looking at another start if Moore sits, but he hasn't played well this season. Fantasy owners in deep leagues might be better off giving Langston Galloway a look over Hield, as he scored a career-high 26 points in 36 minutes in the double-overtime loss to Memphis on Monday.
