Paul Pierce scored 25 points with four rebounds and two assists Wednesday versus the Bobcats. Pierce made nine of 11 from the field, including 5-5 from long range.
Over the last 7 games Pierce has returned top-50 value to his owners who stayed patient with the future HOF despite his clearly declining play. Now is the time to sell high and get a guy who can help you down the stretch as Pierce simply cannot keep up at this pace. Just don't expect the market to be "bullish" on Pierce as his decreasing production is common knowledge. ANALYST:
Le'Veon Bell (knee) hasn't been cleared to start running yet.
After an injury plagued 2015 season, Bell is looking to get healthy and be ready for the regular season. He has not yet been cleared to start running but with the Super Bowl not being played yet, Bell has time to get back into shape. Expect him and the Steelers training staff to work hard on getting him ready for the regular season where he should be considered a top fantasy RB. Analysis: Dillon Conklin
Kings are strongly weighing the firing of coach George Karl.
It has been rumored for quite some time that it wouldn't be long before Karl was out as the coach in Sacramento. It seems like that time has come as Karl has lost support in the front office among other riffs with players on the team. There is no doubt Karl is a great coach but this fit with the Kings just wasn't a good one from the start. Analysis: Dillon Conklin
