Brewer scored 20 points (7-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT) with six rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in 27 minutes off the bench Wednesday.

He's having a solid run at the moment, averaging 17.2 points, 5.7 boards and 1.0 steals over his last six games, and Brewer seems to be emerging as Rockets' coach Kevin McHale's preferred sixth man. Despite his lack of a starting role, he could have some real fantasy value down the stretch.

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 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.
