12/3/2014 10:38:00 PM
Description: Wizards small forward Paul Pierce left Wednesday's game with a toe injury according to CSN Washington.
Insight: Pierce did not return. The small forward has been very inconsistent this season anyway, and Otto Porter will likely receive a boost in fantasy value as long as Pierce is out.

He is averaging 13.1 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 2.5 apg, but shooting only 40 percent from the field. Owners should be pleased with Pierce's production.
 
11/9/2014 11:06:00 AM
Description: Wizards small forward Paul Pierce had an abysmal shooting night, but still found a way to to contribute to Saturday's win against the Pacers.
Insight: Pierce shot 2-of-13 from the field, but was 8-of-10 from the line, for 12 points. He also chipped in five rebounds and three assists. Pierce is nowhere near the player he once was, but will continue to be a solid player for Washington, as long as he stays healthy.

Insight: He was 5-of-10 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line. Pierce also had five rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and zero turnovers in 28 minutes of action. Solid all-around game.

10/27/2014 5:41:00 PM
Description: Wizards small forward Paul Pierce will be a starter this season, but time will tell if Pierce remains a major fantasy contributor.
Insight: Pierce will surely have his moments of stardom this season, but the Wizards want him to be fresh for the playoffs, so they will not overwork him. He could be a quality pick late in drafts, but he has virtually no upside.

Description: Paul Pierce will sign a two-year contract for $11 million with the Washington Wizards, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.
Insight: In his one year with the Nets, Pierce averaged 28 minutes, 13.5 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.5 threes and 1.1 steals per game. He should be able to match those numbers with Washington and could improve upon them if the Wizards up his minutes. The departed Trevor Ariza averaged 35.4 minutes last season.

Description: Nets forward Paul Pierce estimates he has one or two years left in his career. SOURCE: Tim Bontemps, New York Post
Insight: Pierce (13.5 ppg, 4.6 rpg in 2013-14) is still good enough to be a starter but he can't carry the load on offense like he used to. If the Nets are unable to re-sign Pierce, the Clippers and Grizzlies would both be great fits for him. Pierce would also welcome a return to Boston but that's unlikely given the team's rebuilding efforts.

Description: Brooklyn forward Paul Pierce is getting the night off Wednesday against Cleveland. SOURCE: Rod Boone, Newsday
Insight: So are veterans Deron Williams, Kevin Garnett and Joe Johnson. Pierce's 28 minutes per game this season respresent a career-low. His fantasy value seems to be shrinking by the minute.

Insight: Pierce, who had been questionable with a shoulder injury, has averaged 13.5 ppg since the All-Star break. That's the same scoring average he had in the first half, though he's been much more efficient in the second half (48.8 percent shooting versus 42.9 before the break).
 
4/15/2014 12:05:00 PM
Description: Brooklyn forward Paul Pierce (shoulder) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.
Insight: The Nets have an "old" roster with six players 30-years-old or older, so this isn't a surprise. Starting any of the veterans on Tuesday will be a risky play. Marquis Teague, Marcus Thornton and Mason Plumlee could play big minutes.
 
4/11/2014 6:40:00 PM
