Date:

Vince Carter played 30 minutes against the Clippers on Wednesday with 11 points, seven rebounds, one assist, two blocks and three 3-pointers.

Back in the preseason, coach David Fizdale said he was looking to use Vince as his stretch four, which was his primary role tonight. It's the first time he's hit 24 minutes in a game since Thanksgiving, so the increase in minutes likely had a lot to do with JaMychal Green (face) not playing. If J-Myke is out again, Vince could be a DFS punt against the Warriors on Friday.
Jan 5 - 1:22 AM

Vince Carter scored 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting with four rebounds and four triples in Friday's win over the Rockets.

This was his first game with double-digit points since Nov. 21, so Carter can be left on the wire in standard leagues. Fantasy owners can't rely on a guy who plays anywhere from 15-22 minutes per night.

Vince Carter (hip) returned to action on Tuesday vs. the Cavaliers, scoring three points on 1-of-4 shooting with four assists, two rebounds and one triple in 18 minutes.

He was playing way too many minutes at the start of the season and the Grizzlies will probably want to keep his minutes in the teens or the lower 20s moving forward, especially with Troy Williams and Troy Daniels playing pretty well. Carter belongs on the wire.

Vince Carter (hip) is available to play vs. the Cavaliers on Tuesday.

Carter hasn't played since Nov. 28 and he's unlikely to play heavy minutes tonight, but his return is great news for the banged-up Grizzlies. Tony Allen, Troy Williams and Troy Daniels could all cede a few minutes to Carter, who comes in with season averages of 9.3 points, 3.9 boards, 1.8 assists and 0.8 steals in 26.5 minutes.

Vince Carter (hip) is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Cleveland.

He was reportedly nearing a return last week, but the Grizzlies keep listing him as questionable. If he does return, Tony Allen, Troy Williams and Troy Daniels will all take a hit in terms of minutes and fantasy value.

Vince Carter (hip) has been ruled out for Saturday's game vs. the Warriors.

He is nearing a return, but it won't be tonight. Troy Williams and Troy Daniels (illness) should both see a sizable chunk of minutes against Golden State.
Sat, Dec 10, 2016 07:54:00 PM

Vince Carter (hip) is questionable to play against the Warriors on Saturday.

He's getting closer and the sense around the team is Carter has a legitimate chance to make his return after missing six games. Carter's hip injury could keep him limited in his first game back, so he's unlikely to match his season average of 26.5 minutes per game upon his return. Troy Williams would take the biggest hit.
Fri, Dec 9, 2016 04:36:00 PM

Vince Carter (hip) will not play against the Blazers on Thursday night.

He was listed as questionable on the injury report on Wednesday, but Carter will miss his sixth straight game. Since he's been out, it's been Troy Williams, Troy Daniels and Tony Allen picking up most of the wing minutes. Daniels will have the greatest upside with his red-hot scoring numbers. The Grizzlies aren't on a back-to-back, so Allen could get decent run tonight.

Vince Carter (hip) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Blazers.

He's been ruled out the day before each of the last three games, so this is a step in the right direction. The Grizzlies have won each of their last four without Carter with guys like Troy Williams and Troy Daniels stepping up. If Carter does return, that may take some minutes from the Troys and maybe from Tony Allen, as well. Carter is not worth owning in most leagues.
Wed, Dec 7, 2016 05:02:00 PM

Vince Carter (hip) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the 76ers.

Tuesday will mark Carter's fifth straight game on the sidelines, which will likely result in Troy Daniels and Tony Allen getting all the minutes they can handle, and perhaps Toney Douglas can get into the game for longer than the eight minutes he played Monday night. For now, we'll be considering Carter questionable for Thursday's game against the Trail Blazers.
Tue, Dec 6, 2016 03:57:00 PM

Vince Carter (hip) will not play on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

This will be his fourth game in a row on the shelf. The Grizzlies will only have nine players available Monday, so Troy Williams and Troy Daniels will both see heavy minutes on the wings. Daniels may be the better dart throw in DFS after erupting for 31 points against the Lakers in his last outing.
Mon, Dec 5, 2016 09:15:00 AM

Vince Carter (hip) is out for Saturday against the Lakers.

This will be his third game out of the lineup due to his right hip flexor injury. The Grizzlies have played more Tony Allen while Troy Daniels and Troy Williams have both stepped up lately. Daniels and Williams have similar short-term value with Daniels being more about scoring and Williams doing a little of everything. Allen should be a steals specialist.
Fri, Dec 2, 2016 03:07:00 PM

Vince Carter (right hip) has been ruled out for Thursday night against the Magic.

It'll be his second game out due to a hip flexor injury. The Grizzlies look like they'll be rolling with the Nasty Nine with Troy Williams leading the charge for the small forwards. Tony Allen's playing time may decrease on the second night of a back-to-back set, which suggest there could be more minutes for Troy Daniels and Wade Baldwin IV. Carter can stay on the wire while Williams has some short-term value in standard leagues.
Thu, Dec 1, 2016 02:40:00 PM

Vince Carter (right hip) is doubtful for Thursday's game against Orlando.

Carter is still dealing with a right hip flexor and looks unlikely to suit up for Thursday's game against the Magic. Tony Allen looks to be the biggest beneficiary of Carter's likely absence, while Troy Williams and Troy Daniels should see a minutes boost as well if Carter sits again.
