Paul Pierce played 22 minutes vs. the Celtics on Wednesday, finishing with six points on a pair of 3-pointers, three rebounds, one assist and one block.
Pierce admitted that this might have been his final game in Boston, and the home crowd let him feel the love with a sustained ovation. If it was the Truth's final game at the TD Garden, he'll finish with a lofty spot in franchise history -- he's fourth in games played, third in minutes, second in points, first in free throws made, six in assists, seventh in rebounds, fourth in blocks, first in steals, and first in 3-pointers.

Paul Pierce (rest) will return against the Celtics on Wednesday.

Of course he's playing in TD Garden after sitting out on Monday. PIerce will take a couple minutes away from Lance Stephenson, Luc Mbah a Moute and Wes Johnson. The Truth doesn't have much fantasy value.
Feb 10 - 6:15 PM

Paul Pierce (rest) will not play against the 76ers on Monday.

It's the second half of a back-to-back after the road win on Sunday. Pierce is likely going to be ready for Wednesday, but he's not worth using in most leagues.
Feb 8 - 5:47 PM

Doc Rivers said that he's uncertain about how his plan for resting Paul Pierce is impacting his performance.

"I’ve never had to do this with Paul," Rivers said. "And I don’t know if we’re doing it the right way or not. It has to be [hard for him]. You could see he didn’t have great rhythm tonight and he didn’t practice and he takes the days off. Again, it’s an imperfect science." With the Clippers doing everything possible to preserve Pierce for whatever he can provide in the postseason, the veteran forward is waiver wire fodder in fantasy leagues.
Feb 1 - 11:54 AM

Paul Pierce failed to score through 16 minutes of action on Sunday, going 0-of-6 from the field and contributing just two assists, one rebound and one turnover to the box score.

At 38 years old, Pierce is no longer capable of helping fantasy teams in almost any setting. He’s averaging just 5.7 points and 1.1 three-pointers per game on 34.4 percent shooting, so it’s safe to leave the veteran on the wire in all leagues.
Jan 31 - 6:41 PM

Paul Pierce will return to the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Bulls, sending Wes Johnson back to the bench.

Pierce was rested on Friday, but he'll be back out there tonight. However, Pierce is averaging just 7.2 points and 1.6 three-pointers per game as a starter on 35.0 percent shooting, so he's not a viable fantasy target in almost any league.
Jan 31 - 3:25 PM

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

He's fine and the Clippers won't need him tonight. This is good news for Wes Johnson and Luc Mbah a Moute tonight. Pierce isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Jan 29 - 8:57 PM

Paul Pierce started Sunday's game but played only 13 minutes, hitting 1-of-6 shots to finish with three points, five boards and one assist.

The Clippers have no intention of wearing out Pierce in January, even if they do need to him spread the court in Blake Griffin's absence, so games like this aren't unexpected. The 10-time All-Star is only worth a glance in very deep leagues.
Jan 10 - 7:41 PM

Paul Pierce made 2-of-10 from the field for four points with two rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 19 minutes against the Hornets on Saturday.

He hasn't been shooting the ball well and the majority of his shots have been treys in his last five. Pierce has only 10th-round value since Blake Griffin (quad) went down, so he's obviously only a short-term asset in deep leagues.
Jan 9 - 6:44 PM

Paul Pierce returned to L.A.'s starting lineup on Wednesday with 17 points, four rebounds, one assist and two steals in 24 minutes, making 5-of-6 shots from downtown.

The Clippers are playing inspired ball without Blake Griffin (quad) available, as they reeled off their seventh consecutive win tonight. Pierce's minutes will be monitored closely and he's subject to random days of rest, which reduces his appeal to deep leagues.
Jan 7 - 1:22 AM

Paul Pierce will start on Wednesday against the Blazers on Wednesday.

He was rested on Saturday and should be ready to roll. Pierce is likely only going to play minutes in the lower 20s, so he's not a great option in most leagues.
Jan 6 - 10:03 PM

Paul Pierce made another start at PF on Wednesday, finishing with 13 points, three 3-pointers, five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 21 minutes.

He's averaging 21.3 minutes in the past three games, which is likely where Doc Rivers would like to keep him. Pierce might have enough gas left in the tank to be relevant in deep leagues while Blake Griffin is out, but he's best viewed as a punt-SF option in DFS.

Paul Pierce played 17 minutes against the Wizards on Monday with nine points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer.

This game was ugly early with the Clippers winning the first quarter 34-20. Pierce will likely be looking at minutes in the lower 20s while Blake Griffin (quad) is out, but he's still not worth owning in most leagues.

Paul Pierce will start against the Wizards on Monday.

He started the second half on Saturday and looked great with 20 points. Pierce probably will get minutes in the upper 20s and there should be plenty of shots to go around. He's still only an add in deep leagues, but give him a look in DFS.
Mon, Dec 28, 2015 05:42:00 PM

Doc Rivers anticipates using more smaller lineups with Blake Griffin (quad) out of the lineup.

Rivers likes how Paul Pierce paced the floor when the Clippers played small ball sans Griffin, and we can expect to see that look more often given the other options on the roster. This is the type of situation that Rivers and the Clippers have been keeping Pierce in bubblewrap for to date this season, but The Truth is not going to set your fantasy roster free.
