Description: Wizards small forward Paul Pierce (sore right toe) will not play on Tuesday against Minnesota.
Insight: Otto Porter will start in Pierce's place. Consider him day-to-day.
 
12/8/2014 10:19:00 PM
Description: Wizards small forward Paul Pierce led Washington past Boston, 133-132, in double overtime on Monday.
Insight: Pierce shot 9-of-12, including going 4-for-5 from the 3-point line and a perfect 6-for-6 at the line on his way to score 28 points. Pierce also had seven rebounds, three assists and two steals.
 
12/3/2014 10:38:00 PM
Description: Wizards small forward Paul Pierce left Wednesday's game with a toe injury according to CSN Washington.
Insight: Pierce did not return. The small forward has been very inconsistent this season anyway, and Otto Porter will likely receive a boost in fantasy value as long as Pierce is out.
 
11/26/2014 9:33:00 PM
Description: Wizards small forward Paul Pierce scored 15 points in Wednesday's loss to the Cavaliers.
Insight: He was 4-of-5 from the field and 7-of-10 from the line. Pierce also chipped in three rebounds, three assists, and three turnovers.
 
11/23/2014 11:06:00 AM
Description: Wizards small forward Paul Pierce turne back the clock during Saturday's win against the Bucks.
Insight: He was 8-of-16 from the field, 5-of-7 from the line, and 4-of-5 from beyond the arc for 25 points. Pierce also had 10 rebounds and two assists before fouling out. He is averaging 13.1 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 2.5 apg, but shooting only 40 percent from the field. Owners should be pleased with Pierce's production.
 
11/9/2014 11:06:00 AM
Description: Wizards small forward Paul Pierce had an abysmal shooting night, but still found a way to to contribute to Saturday's win against the Pacers.
Insight: Pierce shot 2-of-13 from the field, but was 8-of-10 from the line, for 12 points. He also chipped in five rebounds and three assists. Pierce is nowhere near the player he once was, but will continue to be a solid player for Washington, as long as he stays healthy.
 
11/4/2014 10:01:00 PM
Description: Wizards small forward Paul Pierce scored 17 points in Tuesday's win over the Knicks.
Insight: He was 5-of-10 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line. Pierce also had five rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and zero turnovers in 28 minutes of action. Solid all-around game.
 
10/29/2014 10:22:00 PM
Description: Wizards small forward Paul Pierce played well in his team debut.
Insight: He played 33 minutes and was 6-for-10 from the field, including one three-pointer, for 17 points. Pierce also had six rebounds, five assists, and two steals, making it just another night on the court for him.
 
10/27/2014 5:41:00 PM
Description: Wizards small forward Paul Pierce will be a starter this season, but time will tell if Pierce remains a major fantasy contributor.
Insight: Pierce will surely have his moments of stardom this season, but the Wizards want him to be fresh for the playoffs, so they will not overwork him. He could be a quality pick late in drafts, but he has virtually no upside.
 
7/13/2014 3:52:00 PM
Description: Paul Pierce will sign a two-year contract for $11 million with the Washington Wizards, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.
Insight: In his one year with the Nets, Pierce averaged 28 minutes, 13.5 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.5 threes and 1.1 steals per game. He should be able to match those numbers with Washington and could improve upon them if the Wizards up his minutes. The departed Trevor Ariza averaged 35.4 minutes last season.

Description: Nets forward Paul Pierce estimates he has one or two years left in his career. SOURCE: Tim Bontemps, New York Post
Insight: Pierce (13.5 ppg, 4.6 rpg in 2013-14) is still good enough to be a starter but he can't carry the load on offense like he used to. If the Nets are unable to re-sign Pierce, the Clippers and Grizzlies would both be great fits for him. Pierce would also welcome a return to Boston but that's unlikely given the team's rebuilding efforts.
 
4/16/2014 6:37:00 PM
Description: Brooklyn forward Paul Pierce is getting the night off Wednesday against Cleveland. SOURCE: Rod Boone, Newsday
Insight: So are veterans Deron Williams, Kevin Garnett and Joe Johnson. Pierce's 28 minutes per game this season respresent a career-low. His fantasy value seems to be shrinking by the minute.
 
4/15/2014 7:10:00 PM
Description: Nets power forward Paul Pierce is ready to go Tuesday against the Knicks. SOURCE: Stefan Bondy, New York Daily News
Insight: Pierce, who had been questionable with a shoulder injury, has averaged 13.5 ppg since the All-Star break. That's the same scoring average he had in the first half, though he's been much more efficient in the second half (48.8 percent shooting versus 42.9 before the break).
 
4/15/2014 12:05:00 PM
Description: Brooklyn forward Paul Pierce (shoulder) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.
Insight: The Nets have an "old" roster with six players 30-years-old or older, so this isn't a surprise. Starting any of the veterans on Tuesday will be a risky play. Marquis Teague, Marcus Thornton and Mason Plumlee could play big minutes.
 
4/11/2014 6:40:00 PM
Description: Brooklyn forward Paul Pierce (hip) will return to the lineup Friday, the Nets announced via Twitter.
Insight: Pierce got a night off to rest on Wednesday. He'll start alongside Jorge Gutierrez, Alan Anderson, Joe Johnson and Kevin Garnett against the Hawks.
 
4/9/2014 5:44:00 PM
Description: Brooklyn forward Paul Pierce will sit out Wednesday, according to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News.
Insight: Mirza Teletovic will start in Pierce's place. The 36-year-old Pierce played 32 minutes Tuesday at Miami and will get a rest.
 
Hot3/30/2014 9:52:00 PM
Description: Brooklyn forward Paul Pierce has scored 22 or more points in three of his last four games.
Insight: Pierce had 22 points, five rebounds, five threes and two steals Sunday against the Timberwolves. The forward has made 15 triples in his last four games.
 
3/12/2014 10:18:00 PM
Description: Brooklyn forward Paul Pierce's 29 points Wednesday at Miami were his most since Jan. 27.
Insight: Pierce entered Wednesday averaging just 11.2 ppg and 24.7 mpg in March, though that included March 9 when he left after just one minute due to injury.
 
3/10/2014 6:08:00 PM
Description: Brooklyn forward Paul Pierce is active for Monday's game with Toronto. SOURCE: The Record
Insight: Pierce played just one minute Sunday after injuring his shoulder. He's averaging less than 12 ppg since the All-Star break (11.9 ppg in ten appearances).
 
3/10/2014 10:56:00 AM
Description: Nets PF/SF Paul Pierce hurt his shoulder again in the first half Sunday against Sacramento and is questionable for Monday's game against Toronto.
Insight: He's been dealing with a sore shoulder and apparently aggravated it in the first minute of the game. With Pierce out, veteran Andrei Kirilenko played at the PF spot, but he too was injured and will be questionable for Monday.
