Courtney Lee SG MEM 3 Days
Courtney Lee hit 4-of-6 shots and zero 3-pointers for nine points, four rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in 27 minutes in another start on Saturday.
Tony Allen came off the bench for eight points, six rebounds and four assists on 4-of-6 shooting in 22 minutes. The timeshare is on and while both players are still putting up respectable numbers, the fact remains that they're severely hurting each other's value. If you need to drop either player for a hot free agent, it makes sense.

Courtney Lee struggled again on Friday against the Bulls, scoring just six points on 3-of-8 shooting with two rebounds and one block in 28 minutes.
Lee had a nearly identical scoring line on Wednesday but floated his value with three steals that night. While it feels like he has fallen off of a cliff, he's still a top 90-120 value (9/8 cat) over his last four games with averages of 9.5 points, 1.3 treys, 1.3 steals and 0.8 blocks while hitting 48.5 percent of his shots. It certainly looks like his role on offense has shrunk but a shift from offense to defense may have some sustainability. A vote to drop in 12-team, 8-cat formats is akin to a bet he can't keep averaging over 3.0 combined steals, blocks and threes going forward if this role continues.

Courtney Lee started again on Wednesday but hit just 2-of-7 shots (zero 3-pointers) for four points, two rebounds, two assists and three steals in 26 minutes.
He was hot coming in and should continue to start over Tony Allen. But it looks like Allen and James Johnson could eat into his minutes going forward, and we're just hoping tonight didn't signal the beginning of the end for Lee's hot run. Wait and see what happens on Friday against the Bulls before making a final decision on whether to keep or drop him.

Courtney Lee stayed hot against the Cavs on Saturday with 19 points, four boards, one assist, two blocks, one steal and five 3-pointers in 33 minutes.
He's had no problem whatsoever since the return of Tony Allen. Since Allen returned, Lee averaged 13.4 points, 3.8 boards, 2.0 assists, 0.4 steals and 2.2 triples on 49.0 percent from the field. The Grizzlies traded for him for a reason and they're drawing up a lot of plays for him in their offense.

Courtney Lee scored a team-high 18 points against the Lakers during Wednesday's 108-103 victory with two boards, five assists and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.
He's still logging some serious minutes since Tony Allen has returned and looks like he'll be able to hold his value in standard leagues. In his last five, Lee averaged 12.2 points, 3.8 boards, 2.8 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.0 triples. Unless there is an irresistible, must-add player on the wire, his owners should stick with him.

Courtney Lee hit just 4-of-13 shots, but still finished with 10 points, nine rebounds, one assist and a 3-pointer in Saturday's loss to Charlotte.
Lee's minutes could get funky with Tony Allen back, but it was James Johnson who took the minutes hit tonight, playing just 10. Lee was good for 35 minutes tonight, so thus far, he looks like a fantasy hold, despite the poor shooting.

Courtney Lee had just six points, four assists, two steals and a block on 2-of-8 shooting, but started and played 37 minutes on Tuesday.
Tony Allen wasn't back for this one, but is getting close. And Mike Conley was back in action for the Grizzlies tonight. We're going to call it a bad night for Lee, since he could easily have put up big numbers with so many minutes. But once Allen is back, we'll have to see what Lee's role is going forward.

Courtney Lee scored 17 points and added six rebounds, two assists and one steal vs. the Magic on Wednesday, helping the Grizzlies take a two-game winning streak into the All-Star break.
Lee was bothered recently by a nagging ankle injury but it hasn't limited him in recent games, and he'll now get six full days to rest and recuperate. He's been a top-50 player in nine-cat leagues over the past month, but be prepared for his 34 minutes per game to dwindle whenever Tony Allen (wrist) is healthy enough to return.

Courtney Lee's ankle injury didn't limit him much during Tuesday's win over the Wizards with 13 points, one board, one assist, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer.
He had a minor ankle injury on Sunday and showed up on the injury report for tonight's game. Lee was active on both ends and didn't seen affected by the injury during a big win. Things should get interesting for the Grizzlies on the wing with Tony Allen coming back, but Lee owners should see how it plays out before making a proactive move.
