Vince Carter said he's planning on playing for two more years.
The 40-year-old veteran is set to become a free agent this summer and is hopeful to re-sign with the Grizzlies. He still has some gas left in the tank and averaged 8.0 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.5 triples in 73 games, and he played nearly 25 minutes per game with Chandler Parsons (knee) on the shelf for most of the season. If he comes back, he won't be worth drafting in standard fantasy leagues. May 7 - 10:40 AM

Vince Carter said he wants to keep playing and staying in Memphis is up to the Grizzlies.

"It's a pleasure coming to work here with the fans, atmosphere," Carter said. He's a free agent and is 40 years old, but he did show he can still play with 12 points in 32 minutes during Game 6. If Chandler Parsons (knee) can stay on the court, Carter likely wouldn't play too much in Memphis.
Apr 28 - 2:26 PM

Vince Carter scored 12 points in 32 minutes against the Spurs on Thursday, adding four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He had the unenviable task of guarding Kawhi Leonard for some key minutes and had a big steal against him. Carter is 40 years old, but he showed he still has plenty left in the tank. Carter is a first-ballot Hall of Fame player as one of the league's best players over the last two decades.
Apr 28 - 12:33 AM

Vince Carter looked to have banged knees late in Saturday's game against the Spurs.

He hobbled off the court and hopefully he'll be able to recover for Tuesday. If not, there will be more minutes going to James Ennis, Andrew Harrison and Troy Daniels.
Apr 22 - 11:48 PM

Vince Carter finished with six points across 22 minutes in Sunday's 103-90 loss against the Pistons.

Carter was playing in his 1,346th NBA game, tying Kobe Bryant for 13th on the NBA's career regular season games played list. The 40-year-old is averaging 9.0 points per game over his past four outings, and he has hit at least two 3-pointers in each of the games. While Carter is no longer someone to lean upon regularly in fantasy, he still serves a purpose in deeper rotisserie formats.
Apr 9 - 10:29 PM

Vince Carter (rest) returned from a one-game absence on Tuesday vs. the Spurs, scoring eight points with two rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

Carter could easily be rested on Wednesday vs. the Thunder, but his status could hinge on the availability of Tony Allen (eye). Carter is a low-end asset anyways and there should be several better options on your waiver wire.
Apr 5 - 1:20 AM

Vince Carter (rest) will not play against the Lakers on Sunday.

This news was coming from a mile away with VC playing big minutes lately and the Grizzlies clinching the postseason on Friday. With Carter out, Troy Daniels, James Ennis and Tony Allen figure to pick up some added run. If Andrew Harrison is OK, he may be in the mix, too.
Apr 1 - 8:16 PM

Vince Carter scored 21 points with eight rebounds on Wednesday, hitting 5-of-8 field goals and 7-of-7 free throws with four 3-pointers in 33 minutes of action.

In the process, Carter passed Ray Allen for 22nd in NBA history for career points -- next up is Patrick Ewing, who is 304 points ahead of the ageless VC. Chandler Parsons' season-ending knee surgery has vaulted Carter into a critical role for the playoff-hungry Grizzlies -- they're currently holding the No. 7 seed, which would likely mean a first-round matchup vs. the Spurs.
Mar 30 - 12:37 AM

Vince Carter scored 10 points with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two triples in 30 minutes vs. the Spurs on Saturday.

He also hit a pair of free throws and seven of his shot attempts came from beyond the arc. Since moving into the starting lineup on Mar. 13, VC is averaging 11.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 2.3 triples, but keep in mind that those averages include his fluky 24-point game with six triples vs. the Bucks. He's a low-end streaming option and the Grizzlies only play three times next week.
Mar 19 - 12:45 AM

Vince Carter hit 1-of-2 shots for three points, one steal and two blocks in 29 minutes in Thursday's win over the Hawks.

His perfect game last Monday, when he had 24 points and six 3-pointers without missing a shot, has already been forgotten, as he's averaging 5.0 points and 0.5 3-pointers in his two games since then. If you picked him up after Monday's explosion, you should probably throw him back on the waiver wire and try someone else.
Mar 16 - 10:43 PM

Vince Carter scored seven points with three rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Bulls on Wednesday.

Coach David Fizdale did say he was going to be aware of Carter's minutes, so he should be looking at minutes in the upper 20s going forward. Carter could have some value in favorable matches, but it's never easy to count on a 40-year-old player in fantasy. He's more of a deep-league guy.
Mar 15 - 11:54 PM

Coach David Fizdale said he won't wear out Vince Carter with heavy minutes.

The Grizzlies are starting Carter, Mike Conley, Tony Allen, JaMychal Green and Marc Gasol again on Wednesday. VC was out of this world for a 40-year-old with his 24 points on perfect shooting in 30 minutes. Carter has played 23.7 minutes per game, so getting him to the upper 20s may not be too much to ask. He could wind up scoring in the teens most nights, but he's still a volatile fantasy property.
Mar 15 - 7:00 PM

Vince Carter finished with a season-high 24 points in Monday's win against the Bucks, sinking all eight of his field-goal attempts, all six of his 3-point attempts and both of his free throw tries.

Carter is the first 40-year-old playing to make six 3-pointers in an NBA game. It was vintage Vinsanity in Monday's game, as the old man showed he still has a little something left in the tank. Don't get too carried away trying to add him for the stretch run, though, as he entered with just 35 total points over his past six appearances with six total 3-pointers during the stretch. This is more of an anomaly than anything else and he remains useful only in deeper seasonal formats.
Mar 13 - 10:58 PM

Vince Carter will start in place of Chandler Parsons (knee) on Monday vs. the Bucks.

Parsons is dealing with knee soreness yet again, but it's not clear how long he will be out. Carter's minutes have been trending up for over a week, but he's not a great pickup outside of very deep formats. Over his last five games, he's averaging 5.8 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.2 treys in 23.2 minutes per game.
Mar 13 - 6:40 PM

Vince Carter was ejected from Tuesday's game vs. the Suns with two technical fouls.

He lasted just two minutes in the first quarter before he was tossed, finishing scoreless with one shot attempt -- he threw an elbow into Devin Booker's face. Troy Daniels and James Ennis will get a small bump the rest of the night.
