Corey Brewer SG/SF HOU 28 Days

Brewer tied for the team high with 12 points (4-12 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT) in 27 minutes in the blowout loss to the Pelicans on Friday.

Brewer came up big last Sunday with 25 points and six 3-pointers, but has come back to earth in his last three games (10.7 points, 1.0 3-pointers). He is getting consistent minutes off the Rockets' bench, but can not be counted on for consistent production.

Brewer put up 25 points (8-11 FG, 6-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two rebounds, and one assist in 24 minutes off the bench Sunday.

Through his first three games with the Rockets, Brewer has averaged 16.7 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.7 steals, and 3.7 three-pointers in 23 minutes per game. While he has gotten off to a heck of a start with the Rockets, Brewer's production is unsustainable. He's hit 58 percent of his shots from the field and 65 percent of his shots from beyond the arc. If he regresses to his career averages in shooting (43% FG, 29% 3Pt) and continues to play just 23 mpg, Brewer will struggle to maintian enough value to roster consistently in standard leagues. The Rockets have four games this week, so it's worth taking a flier on Brewer, but just know that the law of averages says he'll come crashing down to earth sooner than later.

Brewer will be available to make his Rockets debut Monday versus the Blazers, FOX Sports KRIV reports.

Brewer was dealt to the Rockets last Friday and will thus make his first appearance in new confines. However, he may find difficulty brushing aside Jason Terry and Kostas Pananikolaou for minutes on the wing.

Brewer will not be available to play Saturday against the Hawks.

It was believed that Brewer would be eligible to debut with his new team Saturday, but that's not the case. Troy Daniels, whom the Rockets traded to Minnesota in the Brewer deal, has not yet completed his physical. Fellow Friday trade acquisition Alexey Shved will be unavailable as well.

Brewer did not take part in shootaround, but is available for Saturday's game, the Houston Chronicle's Jenny Dial Creech reports.

From a fantasy perspective, it is probably wise to take a cautious approach with Brewer on his new team, where he may be more of a complimentary piece. It will be interesting to see how many minutes Brewer gets over the next couple games, but he obviously won't displace Trevor Ariza as the primary small forward.

Brewer was traded to the Rockets on Friday, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Brewer has averaged 10.5 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.3 steals in 28 minutes for the Timberwolves this season. The deal appears to send he and Ronny Turiaf to Houston for Troy Daniels. He will likely be used in a similar fashion with the Rockets as he was in Minnesota, though Brewer may see a slight reduction in minutes with his move to a better team.

Brewer could be moved to a bench role Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports.

Head coach Flip Saunders recently said that he is considering benching Brewer in favor of Shabazz Muhammad to give the team another scoring option to start the game. Brewer's move to the bench would likely only result in a slight decrease in playing time in the short-term, but it may also indicate the Wolves' desire to move on from the defensive ace.

Brewer posted a well-rounded line Sunday against the Lakers, contributing 10 points, six rebounds, nine assists, and two steals in 32 minutes of action.

Brewer has been returning mid-round value ever since stepping into the starting lineup. He's averaging 10.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, 5.8 assists, and 3.4 steals over the last five games, and his contribution in multiple categories will be worth taking up until Ricky Rubio (ankle) and Kevin Martin (wrist) return.

Brewer scored 19 points (4-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 10-10 FT), with eight rebounds, five assists and five steals in 38 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Trail Blazers.

Brewer got big minutes, and he produced in a big way for the T'Wolves. When he gets minutes like this it makes him an intriguing fantasy option, but it will all depend on the health of the rest of Minnesota's roster.

Brewer scored 10 points (4-12 FG, 0-2 3P, 2-4 FT) with five steals, four rebounds and four assists in 33 minutes during Monday's loss to the Warriors.

It wasn't a banner night on offense for Brewer, but his owners are willing to put up with weak scoring lines so long as he keeps supplying them with those precious steals.
