Paul Pierce moved to the bench for Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets, finishing with four points, one steal and one board in 19 minutes.
This is the second consecutive game that Pierce has played less than 20 minutes and it doesn't help that Wes Johnson played well with the starters tonight. Feel free to move on from Pierce if you haven't already. Nov 25 - 12:00 AM

Paul Pierce will move to the bench for Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Pierce started vs. the Raptors on Sunday and played just 19 minutes, but the Clippers will likely continue to shuffle their lineup until they find some success. Pierce is only an option in deeper fantasy leagues. Wes Johnson will draw the start on Tuesday.
Nov 24 - 8:27 PM

Paul Pierce will start Sunday's game against the Raptors, sending Lance Stephenson back to the bench.

Chris Paul, J.J. Redick, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordon will join Pierce in the starting five for today's game. Despite averaging 31 minutes per game as a starter this season, Pierce is only putting up 4.5 points, 2.0 assists and 1.5 three-pointers per game in his previous two starts. Needless to say, he's not worth rostering in most formats.

Paul Pierce (rest) will not play against the Blazers on Friday.

He probably needs the day off after a season-high 32 minutes on Thursday. Pierce has been awful this season and isn't worth owning in almost any league.
Nov 20 - 8:41 PM

Paul Pierce played a season-high 32 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday with six points, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.

Coach Doc Rivers really wanted to use Pierce as much as he could, but it didn't work out. Don't expect Pierce to play nearly as much on Friday against the Blazers. He's only worth owning in deep leagues and will lose value once J.J. Redick (back) returns.
Nov 20 - 1:51 AM

Paul Pierce played a season-high 30 minutes against the Pistons on Saturday with three points, three rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer.

He was only playing 21 minutes per game before this, but coach Doc Rivers basically just bumped Lance Stephenson and have Pierce more minutes. He'll likely be back closer to 20 minutes this week. Pierce is not a great pickup.
Nov 14 - 7:09 PM

Paul Pierce will start on Saturday and Lance Stephenson will come off the bench.

Coach Doc Rivers is putting a shooter out there with Blake Griffin and Austin Rivers. Pierce still probably won't play big minutes, so his output shouldn't change too much today.
Nov 14 - 3:27 PM

Paul Pierce played 20 minutes against the Suns on Thursday with five points, one rebound, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

He did start the second half tonight with Blake Griffin getting ejected. Pierce has been hanging around 21 minutes per game, averaging just 6.0 points, 4.8 boards, 1.5 assists and 0.9 treys in his previous eight games. He can be left on the wire in most formats.
Nov 13 - 1:17 AM

Paul Pierce was held scoreless in Monday's win over Memphis.

Pierce was 0-for-5 from the floor in the win and continued his slow start to the 2015-16 season. The 38-year-old is averaging just 5.4 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 0.7 treys in 21.0 minutes and can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues.
Nov 10 - 9:31 AM

Paul Pierce scored six points with four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 20 minutes on Thursday.

If not for garbage time, he would have been looking at around 24 minutes like he had in the opener. With that amount of playing time, he still won't be worth owning in standard leagues due to all the other scorers on the Clippers right now and a low upside.
Oct 30 - 1:57 AM

Paul Pierce had 12 points and seven rebounds in 24 minutes off L.A.'s bench on Wednesday, helping secure a season-opening victory vs. the Kings.

Pierce played the most minutes of L.A.'s trio of SFs, exceeding Wes Johnson (11 minutes) and even starter Lance Stephenson (19 minutes). It's a good sign for anyone who plucked him off the wire, or took him with a final-round pick, and the 38-year-old vet should have enough juice to be a low-end value if he sustains 24+ minutes per game.
Oct 29 - 2:12 AM

Paul Pierce said that he expects to come off the bench in Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Kings.

Pierce won't have much value this season playing limited minutes off the bench in Los Angeles, so he's not worth rostering in standard formats. Lance Stephenson is expected to start at small forward, but his value isn't great either as he'll likely be splitting minutes with both Pierce and Wes Johnson. This is a situation we'd recommend staying away from in most formats.

Doc Rivers said that Paul Pierce has been underrated for his entire career.

"I think he has been underrated his whole career, in a strange way," Rivers said. "I even told that to him when I first took the job in Boston, that I underrated him. I knew prior that he was good. I just didn’t know he was that good. I never knew he was athletic." Pierce's athleticism has obviously faded significantly in recent years, but he still has a role to play for the Clippers and will be a reliable scorer on the wings. Regardless of whether or not Pierce starts this season, his fantasy value will be limited to deeper leagues.
Oct 24 - 11:17 AM

Paul Pierce caught fire to help the Clippers overcome a 35-point deficit against the Blazers on Thursday, scoring 19 points with two rebounds, four assists, one block and five 3-pointers.

He hit three straight treys on consecutive possessions to get the Clippers caught up. As amazing as this was, Pierce won't be getting many minutes while Chris Paul and Blake Griffin carry the torch.
Oct 23 - 1:39 AM

Doc Rivers said that he will alternate Paul Pierce and Wes Johnson in the starting lineup this season.

"There will be nights when Wes starts, nights when Paul starts," Rivers said, referring to the SF position. "I think we’re versatile enough to be able to do that." The two biggest factors in which player will start are "matchups and Paul's age," according to Rivers. This all but eradicates the fantasy value of Pierce and Johnson, neither of whom will be reliable while see-sawing between the starting five and the bench.
