Vince Carter scored 13 points in 24 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday with six rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer.
He didn't score at all in his previous two games, but a game with the 76ers can bring a lot of guys to life. Carter's minutes have dipped since the Jeff Green deal and he's not worth owning in most leagues. Jan 24 - 11:46 PM

Date:

Vince Carter missed all five of his field goal attempts in Friday's game, finishing with zero points, two rebounds and four assists in 15 minutes.

Maybe he's not ready to start producing just yet. Carter was a low-end asset in fantasy leagues last year but it's not 100 percent clear if or when that's going to happen this year. Outside of deep leagues, he can be left on the wire until he heats up again.
Jan 3 - 3:41 AM

Vince Carter scored 10 points on 3-of-10 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 23 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Add another make or two and this is a typical Vince Carter line and it's looking like he's about ready to get his season going. When you iron out all the wrinkles it typically leads to late-round value, but with little upside he's not a must-add or even must-own player right now.

Vince Carter scored 12 points on 4-of-7 shooting (including two threes) with two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 22 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Carter also dunked on Rudy Gobert and sent the Internet into a brief tizzy. It's very possible that Carter took November and most of December off because he's old, and now he's ready to settle into the role he had last year. Give him a look.

Vince Carter played 41 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday with 18 points, three rebounds, three assists, three steals and five 3-pointers.

He is half-a-man, half-amazing after all. Carter had a 16-point game on Tuesday and the Grizzlies have suddenly turned him loose with the loss of Tony Allen (eye). He was only played 15 minutes per game before this sudden increase, so he's only worth a look in deep leagues for now. Plus, Allen shouldn't be out too long.
Thu, Dec 18, 2014 01:24:00 AM

Vince Carter hit 5-of-12 shots and four 3-pointers for 16 points, four rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Warriors.

He picked the right game to show up, as the Grizzlies needed those 3-pointers to maintain their lead throughout the night. He hasn't done much of anything this season, and while we initially thought he could play like this consistently, it's just not the case. Don't overreact to tonight's nice line.

Vince Carter got a nice tribute in Toronto on Wednesday that moved him to tears, but he didn't have much left for the actual game, finishing with seven points on 3-of-11 shooting.

With Memphis shorthanded due to a flu bug and VC's return to Toronto, we were hoping for big things. He never got it going tonight and his season high is just 11 points, meaning he should be on the waiver wire in your league.

Vince Carter scored a season-high 11 points against the Kings on Thursday with four rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

It's his second decent game following up a six-point, 22-minute game on Tuesday. Carter is not going to be unleashed, so he can remain on the wire in most leagues.

Vince Carter was back in the Grizzlies rotation vs. L.A. on Tuesday, scoring six points with two rebounds, three assists and one steal in 22 minutes.

VC never left the bench in Saturday's game, coincidentally the Grizzlies' only loss this season, but he returned with a season-high for playing time. Memphis finally got some bench production tonight and Carter should slowly improve as the season advances, as he's been limited early on by offseason ankle surgery.
Tue, Nov 11, 2014 11:00:00 PM

Vince Carter played just 15 minutes on Monday, scoring nine points on 4-of-7 shooting (including a three) with two rebounds and no other stats.

Carter is probably just using the beginning of the year as an extended preseason, so keep an eye on him when his minutes start to creep north of 20 per game. Until then, he's a hard guy to roster in standards with very little overall upside.

Vince Carter played just six minutes for three points against the Pacers on Friday.

The highlight of his night was making fun of Chris Copeland's pump fakes after being called for a foul. Carter doesn't look like he'll have fantasy value after only logging 16 minutes in the opener. You can check out the Carter fun in the link below.

Vince Carter recovered his shooting stroke in Friday's preseason finale, scoring 13 points on 5-of-8 field goals, including a 3-of-3 mark from downtown.

Vince also had five rebounds and two assists, though his efficient line was marred by five turnovers in just 22 minutes. He projects as a 25-minute player in a sixth-man role this year, which should be enough to keep him on the radar as a late-round value in roto leagues.
Fri, Oct 24, 2014 11:15:00 PM

Vince Carter hit just 1-of-6 shots for three points, two rebounds, three assists and two blocks on Wednesday.

He played 21 minutes, but didn't do much with them. We were bullish on him coming into camp, but he's struggled throughout most of it. He still has time to turn it around and be a valuable sixth man in Memphis, but for now, he probably belongs on the waiver wire when your draft ends.
Wed, Oct 22, 2014 11:12:00 PM

Vince Carter played eight minutes during Monday's 108-103 loss to Dallas, scoring four points with two rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer.

He only played six minutes on Friday and hasn't been over 13 in any of his four games. Carter played 24.4 minutes per game in his 81 outings last year, so he'll likely be closer to 20. He's not quite worthy of drafting in standard leagues.

Vince Carter (ankle) got back on the floor on Friday night, but logged just six minutes against Flamengo.

We'll let you know if we hear anything for owners to be concerned about, but there's no reason for Carter to push himself at this time of year. The Grizzlies predictably rolled tonight, with a bountiful box score that owners should disregard for projection purposes.
