Corey Brewer SG/SF MIN 19 Hrs

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.

Brewer scored a team-high 19 points (7-17 FG, 0-5 3P, 5-9 FT) with six rebounds, three assists and three steals in 37 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Bucks.

He also committed seven turnovers, but Brewer is now averaging 14.3 points, 3.5 assists, 2.8 boards and 2.8 steals over his last six games, numbers which would be useful to most fantasy owners.

Corey Brewer SG/SF MIN 30 Days

Brewer had eight points (3-10 FG, 2-3 FT), three rebounds, four assists, and three steals in 32 minutes as a starter in the loss to San Antonio on Friday.

Brewer moved into the starting lineup for Kevin Martin (wrist), but played nearly the same amount of minutes as in his previous two games. He does have nine steals in his last two games, so could be a factor in that column.

Brewer will officially start at shooting guard Friday, the Star Tribune reports.

As expected, Brewer will take over the starting shooting guard spot with Kevin Martin going down with a fractured wrist. He'll split time with Chase Budinger as fill-ins until the Timberwolves settle on who they are going to go with for the rest of the season. As a starter, Brewer will most likely get more minutes than he has all season.
