Paul Pierce played his final NBA game on Sunday, finishing the Clippers' loss to Utah with six points on 2-of-4 shooting, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 22 minutes.
"I gave every ounce I could, each and every day," Pierce said after the game. "And I have no regrets, even to the last day." Pierce exceeded 20 minutes once during the 2016-17 regular season, but he hit that mark three times in the playoffs as coach Doc Rivers leaned on him with Blake Griffin (toe) unavailable. Pierce finishes with career averages of 19.7 points, 1.6 threes, 5.6 boards, 3.5 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.6 blocks. He was the Finals MVP during the Celtics' championship season in 2008, made the All-Star team 10 times, and is a guaranteed first-ballot Hall of Famer. Apr 30 - 7:19 PM

Coach Doc Rivers said Paul Pierce or Marreese Speights will start Game 6 on Friday.

If Pierce does start, he has played 35 of his 58 postseason minutes next to Chris Paul. The Truth has not been very good in that small sample as far as fantasy performance goes with only a 10.5 usage rate and a 30.0 true shooting percentage, but the Clippers do have a +6.7 net rating -- also a snail's pace of 84.8. Even if Pierce does start, he's still a risky DFS play.
Apr 27 - 3:13 PM

Paul Pierce scored two points with six rebounds and one turnover in 16 minutes off the Clippers' bench on Sunday.

Pierce has been a DNP-CD more often than not this season, but he's been in the rotation for each of the past seven games. Doc Rivers might be trying to find him some rhythm with the playoffs on the horizon, but either way he's no longer a fantasy asset.

Paul Pierce scored three points in his final game at the TD Garden on Sunday.

Pierce started, but was only on the floor for a total of five minutes, despite constant pleas from the Boston crowd. With the game out of reach, Doc Rivers threw Pierce back onto the court for the Clippers' final possession, and he drained a triple with the clock winding down to the delight of the Celtic's crowd. "At least I can say I put one last bucket in," said Pierce after the game. "These are the best fans in the world. I've never felt anything like this."
Feb 5 - 5:18 PM

Paul Pierce will get the start at TD Garden on Sunday afternoon.

Of course Doc Rivers had to start Pierce in what is almost certainly his last game at TD Garden. Pierce is the all-time leading scorer at that venue by a country mile, leading all players with 12,154 points with Antoine Walker extremely far behind him at 5,550. He'll be getting quite the ovation today, but leave him on the wire.
Feb 5 - 1:11 PM

Paul Pierce scored five points in a start against the Thunder on Saturday with three rebounds in 16 minutes.

The Clippers didn't have Wes Johnson healthy and they needed their wings to play the guard spots more often, so Pierce had to fill in. He was a DNP-CD in the previous two games.
Jan 1 - 12:10 AM

Paul Pierce will start vs. the Thunder on Saturday.

After two DNP-CD the last two games, Pierce will be in the starting lineup for the Clippers. Even with the start, he will not help your fantasy team.

Paul Pierce was a DNP-CD on Monday vs. the Nuggets on Monday

It was the second night of a back-to-back set so he was simply rested. Even when active, Pierce won't help your fantasy team and that's the truth.

Paul Pierce finished Sunday's loss to the Lakers with five points and three rebounds in 12 minutes.

Blake Griffin (knee surgery) was out so it was Pierce starting again, with Brandon Bass (eight points, four rebounds) logging 19 minutes off the bench. Pierce's strict minute-limit relegates him to the waiver wire in nearly all leagues.
Mon, Dec 26, 2016 01:40:00 AM

Paul Pierce will start again on Thursday night to face the Spurs.

It'll be his second game in a row as the starter while Blake Griffin (knee) is out. It's worth a mention that Austin Rivers said he didn't start on Wednesday because of the size of guys like Danilo Gallinari, so getting Pierce out there against Kawhi Leonard makes sense. Pierce only played 18 minutes, so he doesn't have much value.
Thu, Dec 22, 2016 08:52:00 PM

Paul Pierce started on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets, scoring seven points on 2-of-6 shooting with one rebound and two triples in 18 minutes.

With Blake Griffin (knee surgery) out several weeks, coach Doc Rivers said before the game that he will shuffle his lineups most nights based on the matchups. "Most likely, we’ll probably go more opponent-based," Rivers said. "That’s what we did last year at times too and that’s what we’ll do this year. Like Paul will start tonight, there will be a night that Brandon [Bass] starts, there will be a night that Austin [Rivers] starts. Even if Pierce was the full-time starter, he wouldn't be worth picking up in standard leagues because the 39-year-old isn't capable of playing big minutes.

Paul Pierce will start on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets.

Head coach Doc Rivers confirmed Pierce as the starter after he was listed as the starting PF on the game notes. We're not expecting a heavy workload from Pierce in his age-39 season, so fantasy owners should look the other way. A combination of Brandon Bass, Marreese Speights and Austin Rivers should see a bump in value for as long as Blake Griffin (knee surgery) is out.
Tue, Dec 20, 2016 08:48:00 PM

Paul Pierce is being listed as the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets, with Blake Griffin (knee surgery) unavailable.

While the game notes are notoriously unreliable, Doc Rivers has used Pierce as a starter in the past sans Griffin, so this report does have some merit. Still, Griffin's minutes will likely be split up between Pierce, Brandon Bass and Marreese Speights, and none of those guys stand out as an obvious DFS pick. Pierce only managed to put up five points, three boards, one steal and a triple in his last start, so he's not a viable target in almost any scenario despite the increased opportunity.

Paul Pierce drew the start for Blake Griffin (rest) on Tuesday and had five points, three rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer on 1-of-7 shooting in 29 minutes of a double-overtime loss to the Nets.

This is about what we were expecting for Pierce, who is basically riding off into the sunset. It will be interesting to see if this ends up being the last start of his storied NBA career.

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.
