Description: Nuggets guard Aaron Brooks continues to put up numbers in Ty Lawson's absence.
Insight: His stat line on Sunday included 24 points, 15 assists, eight rebounds and three steals. Wednesday wasn't quite as good (13 points, five rebounds, seven assists), but still fantasy worthy. If Lawson doesn't play, Brooks should be in all lineups.

Description: Nuggets guard Aaron Brooks came within striking distance of his first career triple-double Sunday against Houston.
Insight: His stat line included 24 points, 15 assists, eight rebounds and three steals. Unfortunately, Brooks also committed seven turnovers, his most in a game since November 18, 2009.

Description: Denver's newly-acquired point guard, Aaron Brooks, could see his run of "big" minutes come to a screeching halt as Ty Lawson says he'll play Monday night.
Insight: Brooks has averaged over 30 minutes and posted 11.8 ppg and 4.0 apg over his last five starts. That will come to a quick end if Lawson indeed plays on Monday night.

Description: Denver acquired Aaron Brooks Thursday for forward Jordan Hamilton. SOURCE: Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo Sports
Insight: Houston had too many point guards and Brooks was the odd man out. With Ty Lawson and Nate Robinson both injured, Brooks will actually be entering a pretty decent fantasy situation. He won't be a long term fix but Brooks should be good for double-digit points at least until Lawson (broken rib) comes back.

Description: Houston point guard Aaron Brooks (knee) says he's playing Thursday, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: Brooks is dealing with tendinitis in his knee and missed Wednesday's game. The guard had a few good games this season, but with Jeremy Lin, James Harden and Chandler Parsons all healthy and Patrick Beverley nearing a return he isn't going to see enough opportunities to be of value to fantasy owners going forward.
 
1/16/2014 10:46:00 AM
Description: Houston point guard Aaron Brooks did not play Wednesday due to a knee injury and is questionable for Thursday's game against Oklahoma City.
Insight: Brooks is dealing with tendinitis in his knee. The guard had a few good games this season, but with Jeremy Lin, James Harden and Chandler Parsons all healthy he isn't going to see enough opportunities to be of value to fantasy owners going forward.

Description: Rockets guard Aaron Brooks sprained his ankle Thursday but said he'll play Saturday, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: With Jeremy Lin, Patrick Beverley and James Harden dealing with injuries, Brooks has averaged 22 minutes, 10.2 points, 3.3 assists, 2.1 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 1.8 threes per game since Nov. 23. He'll continue to serve as Houston's backup point guard while Beverley is out with a broken hand.
 
11/28/2013 6:23:00 PM
Description: After Rockets guard Jeremy Lin went down with a knee contusion Wednesday night, Aaron Brooks played 27.5 minutes and had 21 points, four assists, two steals and four treys to help Houston beat Atlanta.
Insight: James Harden has missed the last three games due to a foot injury, allowing Brooks to crack the rotation, and Lin's injury gave him even more playing time. He has scored 20-plus points in two of the last three games and made 11 threes in that span.
 
11/25/2013 10:19:00 AM
Description: If James Harden is out of the lineup again Monday night as expected, Aaron Brooks could be an option for fantasy owners.
Insight: Brooks shot an incredible 10-of-14 from the field including 6-of-7 from downtown Saturday night adding four rebounds and five assists in 25 minutes. We could see a repeat on Monday night in Memphis.
 
11/23/2013 10:41:00 PM
Description: With James Harden out of the lineup, Aaron Brooks stepped up with 26 points Saturday as the Rockets held off Minnesota by a score of 112-101.
Insight: Brooks shot an incredible 10-of-14 from the field including 6-of-7 from downtown. Saturday marked the point guard's highest scoring output since April 7, 2010 when he scored 28 against Utah.

Description: It doesn't look like Aaron Brooks will be on the Rockets next season. SOURCE: Houston Chronicle
Insight: Houston isn't going to pick up Brooks' option for 2013-14. By waiving Brooks before June 30th, the team will save $2.5 million. That money will probably go toward signing a top-tier free agent like Dwight Howard or Chris Paul.
 
3/1/2013 4:48:00 PM
Description: The Kings have bought out guard Aaron Brooks, according to Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld.com.
Insight: Brooks nearly had as many DNP-CDs (8) as points (12) in 12 games in February. He'll be eligible to play in the postseason and has until the final day of the regular season (April 17) to sign with a new team.
 
2/5/2013 5:12:00 PM
Description: Kings coach Keith Smart has settled on Isaiah Thomas and Jimmer Fredette as his two points guards in the last two games, with Aaron Brooks picking up two straight DNP-CDs. "I couldn't play all three of them," Smart said. "(So I'm going to) try to play two guys and keep it consistent." SOURCE: Sacramento Bee
Insight: Smart has juggled his rotation frequently but it seems he is resigned to sitting Brooks for now since the guard has a plus/minus rating of minus-27 in his last two appearances. Thomas is the only one of the three who should get fantasy interest going forward.
 
1/16/2013 11:33:00 AM
Description: Sacramento guard Aaron Brooks is questionable for Wednesday's game against Washington.
Insight: The guard isn't producing fantasy-worthy numbers off the bench this season and is unlikely to get his starting job back anytime soon considering how well Isaiah Thomas is playing lately. The Kings are loaded at guard with Thomas, Brooks, Jimmer Fredette, Tyreke Evans and Marcus Thornton and someone is going to see short minutes. At the moment, it's Brooks.
 
1/14/2013 9:20:00 PM
Description: Sacramento guard Aaron Brooks will play Monday against the Cavaliers despite dealing with the flu.
Insight: Brooks missed Saturday's game against Miami. The guard isn't producing fantasy-worthy numbers as a sub this season and is unlikely to get his starting job back anytime soon considering how well Isaiah Thomas is playing lately.
 
1/14/2013 9:59:00 AM
Description: Sacramento guard Aaron Brooks is doubtful for Monday's game against Cleveland. He's still suffering from flu-like symptoms and missed practice on Sunday.
Insight: The odds of Brooks playing Monday night against Cleveland are pretty slim. Brooks is averaging 9.1 ppg this season, his lowest average since 2007-08 when he was with Houston. Meanwhile, starter Isaiah Thomas used the extra playing time to post a season-high 34 points.
