P.J. Hairston has reportedly agreed to a training camp deal with the Rockets.

The Rockets do have available roster space, so if Hairston impresses during training camp, he could earn himself a spot on the regular-season roster. However, with guys like Eric Gordon and Corey Brewer expected to soak up most of the reserve minutes in Houston's backcourt, Hairston would be nothing more than an emergency depth kind of guy with the Rockets.

P.J. Hairston recently had a workout with the Nets.

Hairston may be able to turn this workout into a camp invite, but even if he does make the regular-season roster, his fantasy value would be more or less non-existent in Brooklyn. The Nets also reportedly brought in Jorge Gutierrez and Kendal Marshall for workouts, although with five point guards already on the roster going into camp, it would be surprising to see those guys earn a camp invite.

P.J. Hairston took part in the Lakers free agent minicamp on Wednesday.

While Hairston could earn a camp invite from the Lakers, general manager Mitch Kupchak said the team isn't looking for rotation players. Even if Hairston ends up with a roster spot in Los Angeles, he won't have much fantasy value for 2016-17.

P.J. Hairston (groin) made his return to action on Friday, logging six minutes off the bench and ending his night with two points and one steal.

He hadn't played since March 15 prior to tonight, so expect the Grizzlies to bring him along slowly. He belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.

P.J. Hairston (groin) will be available for Friday's game against the Mavericks.

Hairston is off the team's injury report and will be available for Friday's game against Dallas. While it will help the Grizzlies to have him back, Hairston has been out since March 15 and can be left on waivers in most fantasy leagues.

P.J. Hairston (hamstring) will miss Tuesday's game against the Bulls.

Hairston is reportedly nearing a return, but will be unable to suit up against the Bulls on Tuesday. While Hairston could return before the end of the regular season, he can be left on waivers in all fantasy leagues.
Tue, Apr 5, 2016 12:03:00 PM

Grizzlies head coach Dave Joerger expects P.J. Hairston (hamstring) to return this season.

Joerger was asked about injured players potentially returning this season and Hairston was on his short list. "I think we'll see P.J. again," Joerger said. Hairston has been out since March 15 and seems to be close to returning after an extensive workout on Sunday before the Grizzlies' loss to Orlando. Hairston's return potential return will boost a Grizzlies squad struggling to hold onto playoff spot, but he can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues.

P.J. Hairston (strained left groin) is still out indefinitely.

Hairston was supposed to be re-evaluated in late March but there have been no updates on his status. It seems likely that he's done for the regular season, with his minutes being soaked up by Lance Stephenson, Vince Carter and Tony Allen.
Sun, Apr 3, 2016 08:48:00 PM

P.J. Hairston (groin) will miss the next 7-10 days and doesn't have a timetable to return.

He is going to be re-evaluated after that 7-10 day span, so he's looking at a lengthy absence. With Hairston out, there should be more minutes on the wing for Matt Barnes and Tony Allen. Lance Stephenson has also been effective at the point.

P.J. Hairston (left groin) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves, as expected.

Hairston is likely to spend the next two weeks on the sidelines as he recovers from a groin injury, so he can safely be sent back to the waiver wire in all leagues. With Vince Carter (calf) and Lance Stephenson (wrist) questionable for Wednesday’s game, Ray McCallum, Briante Weber and newly signed Xavier Munford could be forced into extra minutes against the Timberwolves, with McCallum offering the most upside. Matt Barnes and Tony Allen should carry the load on the wings.

P.J. Hairston (left groin strain) could miss a couple weeks of action.

Wow. The Grizzlies continue to be devastated by injuries which explains why they will sign another player to a 10-day contract in Xavier Munford. With Hairston on the shelf, Tony Allen and Ray McCallum will have to step up while hopefully Lance Stephenson (wrist) and Vince Carter (calf) will be able to return soon.

P.J. Hairston (left groin strain) will not return on Monday vs. the Rockets.

The Grizzlies just can't catch a break and are down to eight active players. He finished with six points, two assists and two boards in 18 minutes. If Hairston misses time, Ray McCallum and Tony Allen will have to play even more minutes.
Mon, Mar 14, 2016 10:19:00 PM

P.J. Hairston was limited to two points on 1-of-8 shooting in 25 bench minutes vs. Boston on Wednesday, adding three boards and one steal without any turnovers.

With Tony Allen (knee) and Matt Barnes (hamstring) both healthy, it was inevitable that Hairston would be demoted. Lance Stephenson and Vince Carter both played north of 20 minutes tonight, and there's simply no reason to approach Hairston in fantasy leagues.
Wed, Mar 9, 2016 10:19:00 PM

P.J. Hairston will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

The Grizzlies will go with a starting five of Mario Chalmers, Tony Allen, Matt Barnes, JaMychal Green and Ryan Hollins for Wednesday's game, and the demotion to the second-unit will queue the end of Hairston's run as a semi-relevant name in fantasy hoops. Leave him on the wire.
