Fields scored four points with an assist in five minutes off the bench Friday.

He's relegated to garbage time minutes at this point when Fields sees the court at all, a situation that isn't likely to change any time soon. Leave him on your waiver wire.

Fields did not play a minute on Saturday against the Celtics.

Fields was relegated to the bench prior to Saturday's contest and he stayed there for the duration of the game. With James Johnson posting a double-double in Fields' place on Saturday, it's possible that Fields will remain in a reserve role.

Fields will move to the bench against the Celtics on Saturday.

Fields is getting replaced by James Johnson against the Celtics. The newly-demoted Fields only averaged 13 minutes on the court over his last two games as a starter, so it's entirely possible that he could retain the limited value that he possessed while still a starter.

Fields played 10 minutes on Thursday and managed just a single foul in the box score.

DeMar DeRozan is expected to return to action from his groin injury sometime next week, which will send Fields back to the end of the bench. If you'd picked him up in a deep league hoping he might parlay his starting spot into some modest production, now's the time to cut him loose.

Fields (Concussion) started, scored two points (1-3 FG), and grabbed three rebounds in 16 minutes against the Warriors Friday.

Friday marked Fields' return after a five-game absence. Even as a starter, Fields rarely approaches 25 minutes per game. With such a limited workload, and no one statistical specialty, Fields has very little fantasy value in most formats.

Fields (concussion) has been cleared to play in Friday's game, the San Francisco Chronicle's Rusty Simmons reports.

He had been seeing between 15 and 23 minutes per game in the week leading up to the concussion, and could assume a similar role until DeMar DeRozan returns from a groin injury. Still, even if he sees about 20 minutes per game in the short term, that won't be enough time for him to be useful in any but deeper leagues.

Fields (concussion) will not play in Tuesday's game.

He will miss his fifth straight game with a concussion, but was not a high-end fantasy option anyway. Fields should be considered day-to-day at best.

Fields (concussion) is officially listed as out for Sunday's game against the Nuggets, TSN Sports reports.

Fields has missed the last three games with a concussion, so this will mark the fourth straight. As long as he's still experiencing lingering symptoms, he'll continue to sit out, as concussions are an extremely serious issue. James Johnson has filled in for him ever since he first suffered the injury, so he'll continue to take his spot in the starting lineup. Consider Fields questionable for Tuesday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Fields (concussion) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Clippers, Josh Lewenberg of TSN reports.

Fields was expected to make his return after missing two games with a concussion, but he's still experiencing lingering symptoms and will not play Saturday. Coach Dwane Casey has not announced a starting lineup, but James Johnson figures to get the nod on the wing alongside Terrence Ross.

Fields (head) is anticipating a return to the lineup Saturday against the Clippers, TSN.ca reports.

Fields missed the Raptors' last two games while under the league's concussion protocol, but the team's decision earlier in the day to assign rookie winger Bruno Caboclo to the D-League suggests that Fields is expected to be available Saturday. Now in the final season of his three-year, $20 million contract with the Raptors, Fields doesn't offer much utility other than occasionally spelling Terrence Ross, James Johnson or DeMar Derozan off the bench. He's averaging just 12.3 minutes per game.
