Date:

Paul Pierce will start in place of Blake Griffin (rest) on Tuesday vs. the Nets.

Pierce has appeared in just two games and played a total of 16 minutes this season. In what will be his final season, this could be the final start of his storied NBA career. Pierce is no longer warrants consideration in fantasy leagues. That being said, he's not a viable target in most settings tonight.
Nov 29 - 6:12 PM

Paul Pierce (ankle) was a healthy scratch on Friday vs. the Grizzlies.

He's healthy again, but he's currently out of the rotation. That should change soon, but Pierce won't be a fantasy asset in what will likely be his final NBA season.
Nov 4 - 11:54 PM

Paul Pierce (ankle) will be active against the Grizzlies on Friday.

It's his first game of the season and chances are his minutes won't be very high. Pierce is expected to play more four this year and likely won't play much all season.
Nov 4 - 6:39 PM

Paul Pierce (ankle) didn't play on Wednesday.

Owners should consider Pierce out indefinitely. With a reinforced bench unit this season, there are no guarantees that Pierce will even match last year's modest 18.1 minutes per game.
Nov 3 - 2:03 AM

Paul Pierce (right ankle) is listed as out for Monday's game vs. Phoenix.

He doesn't have a timetable to return at the moment, and the Clippers won't be rushing him back. Leave Pierce on the wire.

Paul Pierce (right ankle) is listed as out for Sunday's game vs. the Jazz.

He tweaked his right ankle about a couple weeks ago and coach Doc Rivers is expecting him to miss additional time. Pierce will have a very limited role when he returns.

Paul Pierce (right ankle) has been ruled out for the Clippers' regular-season opener against the Trail Blazers on Thursday.

Pierce's absence could certainly extend beyond opening night, but he's completely irrelevant in all settings.
Oct 25 - 4:20 PM

Paul Pierce (right ankle sprain) is expected to miss the season opener.

The Clippers begin their season on the road in Portland on Thursday, but Pierce will not be available. To be honest, he may not have played even if he were healthy, and Doc Rivers added that the veteran won't be practicing for a while, so he's very likely looking at missing more than just one game. Los Angeles will use a mix of Luc Mbah a Moute, Alan Anderson and Wes Johnson in Pierce's (possibly extended) absence.

Paul Pierce (right ankle) was withheld from competing in Thursday's practice.

Pierce injured his ankle when he stepped on a sideline reporters foot, and it's unclear if he'll be ready for opening night. The 39-year-old is not worth drafting in any league.
Oct 20 - 3:39 PM

Paul Pierce sprained his right ankle prior to Tuesday's game vs. the Kings.

He's obviously not playing and he should be considered questionable for the season opener. Pierce will log most of his minutes as a backup four this season, but the Clippers will keep his playing time in the teens. He's not a fantasy asset.
Oct 18 - 11:53 PM

Paul Pierce said that he will retire as a Celtic at the conclusion of the 2016-17 season.

Pierce will go on his retirement tour with the Clippers, and then will likely be traded for nothing to the Celtics over the summer in order to end his career with the team that drafted him. The Truth is The Truth won't have any fantasy value during his final NBA season.
Oct 12 - 3:12 PM

Paul Pierce is expected to play more power forward this season.

The Clippers did add some depth at the four with Brandon Bass and Marreese Speights, so it's somewhat surprising to hear this. Although, both Bass and Speights project as centers in the second unit. Pierce won't have much value in his final season.
Sep 26 - 4:47 PM

Paul Pierce announced on Monday that he will play one more season.

"Just like any difficult decision, I think you’ve got to be at peace with yourself," Pierce said. "I’m at peace with retiring, but I’ve got one more ride left. One more season. One more opportunity." Pierce added that he likes the Clippers' chances of competing for a championship, but it's safe to say that his role will be pretty limited in his 19th and final season. Last year, Pierce played 68 games with averages of 6.1 points, 2.7 boards, 1.0 assists and 1.1 triples, so he's not worth targeting in fantasy leagues.
Sep 26 - 9:08 AM

Doc Rivers does not expect Paul Pierce to decide on his potential retirement until training camp draws closer.

Pierce has been waffling on his desire to play throughout the offseason, and it still doesn't sound like we have much clarity despite some reports suggesting the veteran will be back in the fold. "Paul didn't have the best year last year," Rivers said. "I don't think he wants to go out that way. So I think that's why he's working to try to come back. But he still may change his mind next week. So we just have to wait. I told him if I see him at training camp, I'm assuming he's playing."
