Paul Pierce said he is "50-50" on whether or not he will retire.

The Truth has two more years left on his deal with the Clippers, but he will be 39 years old in October and just had the worst season of his career by far. He averaged just 6.1 points, 2.7 boards and 1.0 assists in 18.1 minutes per game during the regular season, so he won't be a fantasy option next season if he decides to keep playing.

Paul Pierce was an unexpected starter for the Clippers on Wednesday, but he failed to score in just 10 minutes of action.

Pierce's 3-point shooting may have been the difference in Doc Rivers' thinking, as well as the fact that Jeff Green could provide some much-needed scoring for a depleted second unit. The 18-year veteran shot 0-of-3 in limited minutes tonight, however, and there are no guarantees that he'll start over Green and Wes Johnson during Game 6 on Friday.
Apr 28 - 1:06 AM

Paul Pierce will start Wednesday's game in place of Blake Griffin (quad).

Jeff Green was the odds-on favorite to start in place of Griffin, and either way Green should earn more playing time than Pierce tonight. Wes Johnson is also in the mix for playing time and all three guys have significant risk as DFS targets.
Apr 27 - 10:02 PM

Paul Pierce said it was difficult to accept a DNP-CD in Wednesday's Game 2 win over the Trail Blazers.

While Pierce isn't going to ruffle feathers, he said it was difficult to watch his team from the bench ."It is what it is," Pierce said. "It is what it is. It's difficult. As a competitor, you want to compete and help your team win." Head coach Doc Rivers said Pierce will help the team during the playoffs, but he's not worth using in daily fantasy leagues.
Apr 21 - 9:49 AM

Paul Pierce scored 11 points with three boards, one assist and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes vs. the Grizzlies on Tuesday.

The Clippers have been cautious with Pierce all season, so he could get another maintenance day on Wednesday vs. the Suns. Even if he's active, he's not worth deploying in fantasy.
Apr 13 - 1:04 AM

Paul Pierce (ankle, rest) will not play Sunday vs. the Mavericks.

Pierce suffered a minor ankle tweak while logging 33 minutes on Friday night, and with the rest of the Clippers starters getting back on the court tonight, it's far from surprising to see the 38-year-old veteran take the night off. Wes Johnson (foot), Jeff Green and Luc Mbah a Moute will split his minutes, but none of those guys are great targets in most settings.
Apr 10 - 2:07 PM

Paul Pierce did not look like a 38-year-old during Friday's overtime win over Utah, registering 18 points on 7-of-12 shooting to go with four 3-pointers, two boards, two assists, three steals and five turnovers in 33 minutes.

Pierce's usage rate spiked to 24.7 in this one with all of the Clippers' studs taking the night off, and he clearly made the most of his increased opportunity. He did, however, briefly exit the game with an ankle tweak, and with the rest of the Clippers starting lineup set to return to action Sunday vs. Dallas, it would be far from surprising to see Doc Rivers hand out a rest day to the veteran. He's not worth owning in most leagues.
Apr 9 - 3:00 AM

Paul Pierce will be in the starting lineup for Friday's game against Utah.

Pierce will be joined by Pablo Prigioni, Jamal Crawford, Luc Mbah a Moute and Cole Aldrich in the first unit, and with just seven players on the active roster for tonight's game, Pierce could be looking at a decent amount of minutes tonight. He's still not worth anything more than a punt in DFS.

Paul Pierce (ankle) returned to action on Wednesday with nine points on 4-of-8 shooting, hitting one 3-pointer with one rebound in 20 minutes off the bench.

Pierce missed over a week to rest a sprained right ankle and bruised right knee, and the Clippers' sole focus is having him healthy for the postseason. He's not a viable fantasy player and is a safe bet to sit out one of L.A.'s final games on Apr. 12/13.
Apr 7 - 1:12 AM

Paul Pierce (ankle) will play vs. the Lakers on Wednesday.

Pierce is feeling better after a week of rest and he might get a few extra minutes with Wes Johnson out tonight, but this only has real fantasy implications in the deepest leagues.
Apr 6 - 9:08 PM

Paul Pierce (ankle) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

The good news is that Pierce might return on Wednesday vs. the Lakers. He only plays minutes in the teens, so this doesn't have any fantasy implications. Leave him on the wire.
Apr 5 - 8:58 PM

Paul Pierce (ankle) is doubtful to play against the Lakers on Tuesday.

The Clippers will likely hold him out again. Now that Blake Griffin is back, guys like Wes Johnson, Luc Mbah a Moute and Jeff Green are not in good spots for fantasy value. Although, some starters could rest on Wednesday.
Apr 4 - 5:38 PM

Paul Pierce (ankle) is doubtful to play against the Wizards on Sunday.

There have not been any encouraging signs on Pierce and the Clippers won't need him with Blake Griffin (hand) back. Pierce shouldn't be owned in any leagues right now.
Apr 2 - 2:26 PM

Paul Pierce (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Timberwolves, as well as Thursday's game against the Thunder.

Jeff Green and Wes Johnson will pick up some extra minutes in Pierce's absence, but neither guy is consistent enough to warrant a roster spot in standard settings. Pierce will likely be back in action for Sunday's game against Washington, but he's a non-option in most leagues.
