Courtney Fortson, who was an All-Star in the D-League this season, revealed that he will not play in the D-League next year.
"It's either the NBA, Europe or China for me. But the D-League is not an option right now," he said. It's hard to blame Fortson after he lit up the league and couldn't get a call up, but his small stature is working against him as he tries to climb back into the NBA. Fri, May 3, 2013 08:58:00 AM

The Rockets intend to pick up Courtney Fortson's $762k team option for 2012-13, according to Fortson's agent.

Fortson gives Houston some added depth at PG, but he shouldn't be on fantasy owners' radars.

Rockets assigned PG Courtney Fortson to the D-League.

With Earl Boykins signed to another 10-day and Goran Dragic healthy, there's no room for Fortson to get minutes on the Rockets right now.

Rockets signed PG Courtney Fortson for the rest of the season.

It's a no-brainer with Kyle Lowry's season in jeopardy and Goran Dragic dealing with a sprained ankle. Fortson is actually signed through next season as well, but that year is non-guaranteed.

Rockets sign PG Courtney Fortson to a 10-day contract on Saturday.

Fortson's deal could be a bellwether for the status of Kyle Lowry -- if he isn't re-signed after 10 days, Lowry could return sooner than later. Fortson should be in the rotation, considering Derek Fisher is seeking a buyout, but he shouldn't be owned in fantasy leagues.

Clippers released G Courtney Fortson on Friday.

By releasing Fortson, the Clippers think Chris Paul is showing no ill-effects from his recent hamstring injury and that Eric Bledsoe is just about ready to be called up from the NBADL to take over third-string PG duties behind second-stringer Mo Williams.

Courtney Fortson hit 5-of-10 shots for 13 points, four boards, two assists and a 3-pointer in Tuesday's blowout loss to the Jazz.

He was very active and saw plenty of run in garbage time, as the Jazz were dominant tonight. He's not worth owning in fantasy leagues, but can be put on watch lists in deeper ones.

Clippers signed G Courtney Fortson.

Fortson was called up from the D-League in the wake of Chris Paul's injury, but with CP3 day-to-day his time in the NBA may be very brief.
