Chris Copeland failed to record any statistics in less than one minute of action on Tuesday.
Rookie F Damjan Rudez (eight points in 17 minutes) has usurped Copeland's playing time in recent games, and neither guy is worth fantasy owners' attention as they battle for a handful of minutes off the bench. Jan 13 - 10:16 PM

Chris Copeland played 27 minutes against the Warriors on Wednesday with five points, five boards, two assists and one steal.

There were some minutes open at the forward spots tonight and Copeland was the main beneficiary. Still, he has not played well and he'll really need to turn it around if he wants minutes once Rodney Stuckey (groin) is back.
Jan 8 - 2:07 AM

Chris Copeland was arguably Indiana's best player on Monday against the Bulls with 17 points, five rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer on 7-of-10 from the field.

He also provided some nice defense against Jimmy Butler to help overcome a huge deficit, which fell short. Copeland was bumped from the rotation due to poor play, but he might be given another shot. He's still not going to be worth picking up in most leagues, though.

Chris Copeland played 34 minutes against the Nets on Saturday with 12 points, three rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

The Pacers didn't have C.J. Miles or Damjan Rudez due to illnesses and Solomon Hill was in foul trouble, so that explains the high minutes. Maybe Copeland earned more playing time, but he's still not worth grabbing in almost any league.

Chris Copeland picked up another DNP-CD on Sunday.

He was a hot commodity early in the season, as he served an ill-fitting role as a go-to offensive player, but his role has evaporated with the return of guys like David West, Rodney Stuckey and C.J. Miles.

C.J. Miles will replace Chris Copeland in the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Raptors.

This news isn't necessarily bad for Copeland as he was much more effective in the second unit. Through 10 games as a reserve this year, Copeland has averaged 13.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.5 three-pointers, and 2.1 assists per game. Miles is coming off a 30-point game from Wednesday, and he'll look to continue his strong play vs. the Raptors, though he rarely is able to string good games together.

Chris Copeland hit 3-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers for 10 points, one rebound and one block in just 18 minutes on Wednesday.

Copeland hasn't scored more than 10 points in five straight games and if he's not scoring, he's not helping your team. Maybe he'll get it turned around, and most Pacer starters were benched tonight, but Copeland can be dropped if you have your eye on a hot free agent.

Chris Copeland made 2-of-9 from the field for five points with three rebounds and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.

He was snapping out of a slump with back-to-back 60.0 percent shooting games before this one, but he went back to his old inefficient ways. Copeland made just 38.6 percent from the field in his previous 10 and that issue will keep him from the standard league conversation.

Chris Copeland will move back into the starting lineup on Thursday.

He shifted to the bench because he couldn't hit shots, but the Pacers will look to add some size to their first unit. Copeland tends to get a lot of shots when he's on the court, so more minutes would ultimately lead to more fantasy value. We'll let you know how he fares tonight.

Chris Copeland played 25 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday with 11 points, three rebounds, four assist and one 3-pointer.

He was up from 15 minutes on Friday, but Copeland is ice cold as far as his fantasy value goes. With the Pacers getting David West back, it's hard to own him in most leagues.

Chris Copeland played 15 minutes on Friday and scored five points with one three, two boards and two assists.

Copeland had tenuous value at best in a big-minute role and in a pure backup role he's waiver wire fodder.
Sat, Nov 29, 2014 03:12:00 AM

Chris Copeland came off the bench and played just 23 minutes to finish with 12 points, three rebounds, a steal and two 3-pointers on 4-of-10 shooting Wednesday.

David West is finally expected back on Friday from a severely sprained ankle as Copeland's minutes and production have been slipping. Once West is back, Copeland is probably waiver-wire material in standard leagues.
Thu, Nov 27, 2014 02:10:00 AM

Chris Copeland scored 11 points on 4-of-10 shooting with three treys, one board and that's it in 14 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Copeland never had any real value in standard leagues unless you were punting half your categories and who does that. Even though he hit three treys he's waiver wire fodder.
Tue, Nov 25, 2014 12:46:00 AM

Chris Copeland played just 27 minutes against the Hornets on Wednesday with six points, two rebounds and two assists.

His minutes took a significant hit with Rodney Stuckey returning tonight after a 39-minute game in his last outing. Copeland is struggling from the field and has hit just 34.0 percent in his last five, averaging 9.0 points, 3.0 boards, 1.2 assists, 0.4 steals and 1.8 triples in that span. If you're eyeing another hot free agent, Copeland is not a must-own player anymore.
Thu, Nov 20, 2014 12:03:00 AM

Chris Copeland finally turned it around on Saturday against the Bulls, making 5-of-11 from the field for 12 points with one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers.

It wasn't a great line, but going 3-of-4 from beyond the arc had to feel good. Copeland is taking a whopping 7.5 treys per game and is scoring 14 per night, so he should have value in standard leagues.
