Vince Carter will be available on Monday vs. the Pistons.
He was away from the team due to a death in his family. He was averaging 6.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.0 triples in March before leaving the team, so there's not much fantasy appeal here. Mar 19 - 1:46 PM

Vince Carter hinted that he'll move on from the Kings as a free agent this summer.

"I’m not going to sit here and deny that I want to play more," Carter said. "Things changed. We aren’t winning and the younger guys need to get better. I get that, but at the same time, I try to make the best of it. That way if it doesn’t work out here, I can still play on another team, maybe a contending team, in a lesser role." Carter will be 42 in what is expected to be his final NBA campaign in 2018-19.

Vince Carter (personal) will not suit up for Saturday's game against the Jazz.

He's away from the team due to a death in his family, so he could miss Monday's game against the Pistons as well. Buddy Hield and Justin Jackson should pick up some extra minutes while Carter is out.
Mar 17 - 7:32 PM

Vince Carter scored nine points, all on 3-pointers, in 24 minutes off the bench Sunday against New York.

Carter also chipped in four rebounds with just one turnover. Due to the Kings' full-on youth movement, though, he's unlikely to see this much playing time on a regular basis down the stretch. Sacramento is respecting the 41-year-old veteran by letting him show what he can do, while also trying to balance using their younger players more while in tank mode. It's a tricky dance.
Mar 5 - 12:51 AM

Vince Carter is expected to spend the rest of the season in Sacramento, as the Kings reportedly prefer not to buy him out.

There were rumors in Toronto that Carter and the Raptors might reunite if VC was bought out and became a free agent this month. However, it appears the Kings want to hold onto their vet. Yet, it sounds like there is an outside chance that the 41-year old Carter finishes his career where it began by signing a one year deal with the Raps over the summer.
Feb 17 - 1:04 PM

Vince Carter returned to action on Sunday with 21 points on 7-of-12 shooting, five 3-pointers, six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 27 minutes.

Carter may be 41 years old, but he's still half-amazing. He'll be subject to frequent DNPs the rest of the season, of course, and is only worth deploying in very deep leagues.
Jan 28 - 10:49 PM

Vince Carter did not play against the Heat on Thursday.

He did play in the previous three games, but it was his turn, apparently. Carter is basically just an extension of the coaching staff and will see plenty of DNPs the rest of the season.
Jan 25 - 10:14 PM

Vince Carter scored six points with three rebounds, one assist, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 19 minutes against the Hornets on Monday.

Both of his field goals came in the first minute to start each half and that was all she wrote. Carter is probably going to be a DNP-CD the next time out.
Jan 22 - 9:28 PM

Vince Carter will be in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Hornets, sending Justin Jackson back to the bench.

In Carter's previous start this season, he posted four points, two assists, one rebound, one steal, three blocks and one turnover in 25 minutes, but we wouldn't expect him to replicate the production in the defensive categories tonight. Jackson's minutes will take a hit with the demotion to the second unit, so he can't be trusted in fantasy hoops.
Jan 22 - 6:32 PM

Vince Carter picked up a DNP-CD on Monday vs. the Thunder.

Coach Dave Joerger said that he will be resting two veterans in every game going forward, so Carter is looking at a lot more DNPs in the second half of the season. Expect more minutes for guys like Buddy Hield and Bogdan Bogdanovic at Carter's expense.
Jan 15 - 11:00 PM

Vince Carter finished with 12 points, eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and a blocked shot in 31 minutes off the bench Saturday against the Nuggets.

The 40-year-old continues to be an important part of Dave Joerger's rotation, as he finds time to use the ageless veteran at the expense of some of his younger players. However, nagging injuries and erratic playing time, as well as the fact he is 40, makes Vinsanity a rather inconsistent fantasy option. He is only worth using in deeper leagues.
Jan 7 - 12:50 AM

Vince Carter said he plans to play one more season.

At 40 years of age, Carter is the oldest player in the NBA, but still managed to score a season-high 24 points in a win over the Cavs earlier this week. As far as future plans, Carter says he believes the 2018-19 campaign will be his final season. "I still say one more year. That is just how I’ve been feeling. It is what it is. One more. I’d like to play one more year. Then, I’d probably just walk away."

Vince Carter scored a season-high 24 points on 10-of-12 from the field with five rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

That 100.0 eFG% in this win makes it one of his most efficient games of his career -- he had a wild 137.5 eFG% last year vs. Milwaukee. This was also the first time VC outscored LeBron James (16 points) since 2007 when Carter was on the Nets. Great story aside for the 40-year-old Hall of Fame swingman, after the game he talked a lot about helping the young guys, so he's really not a strong add in even deep leagues. He's still half amazing.

Vince Carter (ribs) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game against the Clippers.

Whether he's available or not, Carter can't be considered a viable target in fantasy hoops.
Tue, Dec 26, 2017 06:36:00 PM

Vince Carter (ribs) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers.

Carter is averaging just 2.9 points and shooting an abominable 31.9 percent from the floor in 13.9 minutes per game for the Kings this season. He belongs on the waiver wire in all fantasy formats, even when fully healthy.
