Brandon Rush SG/SF UTA 11 Days
Brandon Rush (knee) returned to action on Friday against the Suns, playing 13 minutes with two rebounds and one assist off the bench.
Rush may take a while to get up to speed this season, and when it does happen it will complicate matters for Richard Jefferson and Marvin Williams. For now, owners should evaluate Rush's role on a game-by-game basis.

Brandon Rush (knee) said that "I think my knee is fine. Everything else is fine. I think I'm ready to go."
The Jazz currently boast the leagues worst record of 2-14 and can use all the help they can get. That being said, Rush is coming off a major knee injury, and will likely be eased back into the rotation, limiting his fantasy value. Use a wait-and-see approach.

Brandon Rush (knee) returned to practice on Wednesday and said that he may return to Utah's lineup for Friday's home game vs. the Suns.
"I think I'm taking a step forward," Rush said. "If I feel pretty good, I'll probably end up playing [Friday]." The Jazz can use all available assistance to improve their 2-14 record but Rush isn't likely to be a fantasy asset while he eases his way back into the rotation.

Brandon Rush (knee) will not play on Monday night.
He played 10 minutes back on Nov. 10, but the Jazz have kept him out of the lineup since then. Rush may have wanted to suit up against his old team, but he'll have to wait until later in the season. Marvin Williams and Richard Jefferson should continue to get more of the minutes at small forward.

Brandon Rush is available to play on Friday night against the Bulls.
He played 10 minutes in his season debut on Tuesday, the was rested in Wednesday's game against the Celtics. Rush is 12 months removed from an ACL tear and teams almost always ease players back into action. Regardless, he's still more of an secondary piece in the rotation and is not worth owning in almost any league.
