Latest News
July 17 2:36 PM PT3:36 PM MT4:36 PM CT5:36 PM ET21:36 GMT5:36 2:36 PM MST4:36 PM EST1:36 UAE (+1)23:3617:36 ET4:36 PM CT20:36 - The Washington Wizards have officially signed Pierce.
Analysis: Pierce, who turns 37 in October, spent 15 seasons with the Boston Celtics before being traded to the Brooklyn Nets last season. Pierce averaged a career-low 13.5 points last season in his first year with the Nets. But he is a 10-time All-Star who has gained a reputation as one of the best big-moment players in the league
July 12 8:32 PM PT9:32 PM MT10:32 PM CT11:32 PM ET3:32 GMT11:32 8:32 PM MST10:32 PM EST7:32 UAE (+1)05:3223:32 ET10:32 PM CT2:32 - Pierce is on the move for the second straight summer, this time from Brooklyn to the Washington Wizards. The deal is for the mid-level exception, which is about $5.3 million for next season, and includes a player option in the second year of the contract.
Analysis: Pierce averaged a career-low 13.5 points last season in his first year with the Nets after 15 years with the Boston Celtics.
Apr. 11 4:56 PM PT5:56 PM MT6:56 PM CT7:56 PM ET23:56 GMT7:56 4:56 PM MST6:56 PM EST3:56 UAE (+1)01:5619:56 ET6:56 PM CT22:56 - Pierce has become the 18th player in NBA history to reach 25,000 points.
Analysis: Pierce reached the milestone on a 3-pointer with 3:10 remaining in the first half of Brooklyn's game against Atlanta on Friday. He became the fourth active player, and second on the Nets, in the 25,000-point club.
Apr. 9 5:22 PM PT6:22 PM MT7:22 PM CT8:22 PM ET0:22 GMT8:22 5:22 PM MST7:22 PM EST4:22 UAE (+1)02:2220:22 ET7:22 PM CT23:22 - Pierce is dealing with a hip pointer.
Analysis: It's uncertain if he will play before the playoffs.
Mar. 30 6:13 PM PT7:13 PM MT8:13 PM CT9:13 PM ET1:13 GMT9:13 6:13 PM MST8:13 PM EST5:13 UAE (+1)03:1321:13 ET8:13 PM CT0:13 - Pierce scored 22 points as the Nets moved to the brink of a postseason spot by beating the Minnesota Timberwolves 114-99 on Sunday for their franchise record-tying 13th straight home victory.
Analysis: Pierce scored 16 in the first quarter, two nights after putting up 17 in the period. Truthfully, Pierce is too old to play a solid 40 minutes these days. You may want to only use him in the first quarter, if that is possible in your fantasy league.
Mar. 25 9:58 PM PT10:58 PM MT11:58 PM CT12:58 AM ET4:58 GMT12:58 9:58 PM MST11:58 PM EST8:58 UAE05:580:58 ET10:58 PM CT3:58 - Pierce scored 24 in Tuesday's loss at New Orleans, going 4 of 11 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Pierce has scored more than 18 points just twice in his last 15 games, though he's shooting 48.1 percent from the floor in that stretch.
Mar. 9 3:57 PM PT4:57 PM MT5:57 PM CT6:57 PM ET23:57 GMT7:57 4:57 PM MST6:57 PM EST3:57 UAE (+1)00:5718:57 ET5:57 PM CT22:57 - Pierce left the Brooklyn Nets' game against the Sacramento Kings on Sunday night after suffering a sore right shoulder in the opening minutes and was ruled out for the rest of the game.
Analysis: Pierce was guarding Sacramento's Jason Thompson, who was backing him into the paint and then quickly spun around Pierce for a lay-up with 10:55 left in the opening quarter. The impact from the post-up move had Pierce clutching his shoulder and he walked off the court with a Nets trainer.
Feb. 28 9:42 PM PT10:42 PM MT11:42 PM CT12:42 AM ET5:42 GMT13:42 10:42 PM MST12:42 AM EST9:42 UAE06:420:42 ET11:42 PM CT4:42 - Pierce scored 18 points and the Brooklyn Nets rebounded from their worst loss more than 10 years by routing the slumping Denver Nuggets 112-89 on Thursday night.
Analysis: With this lopsided score, no one was going to have a big fantasy night. The Nuggets' non-competitive ways cost Nets' fantasy owners.
Feb. 12 8:36 PM PT9:36 PM MT10:36 PM CT11:36 PM ET4:36 GMT12:36 9:36 PM MST11:36 PM EST8:36 UAE05:3623:36 ET10:36 PM CT2:36 - Pierce broke out of his recent funk with 25 points on 9-of-11 shooting in a 105-89 win over visiting Charlotte on Wednesday.
Analysis: He also went 5 for 5 from 3-point range. The veteran forward had totaled 25 points over his previous three contests.
Feb. 3 8:21 PM PT9:21 PM MT10:21 PM CT11:21 PM ET4:21 GMT12:21 9:21 PM MST11:21 PM EST8:21 UAE05:2123:21 ET10:21 PM CT2:21 - Paul Pierce scored 25 points and the Brooklyn Nets stopped a three-game losing streak by holding on to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 108-102 on Monday night.
Analysis: Pierce did much of his work from the foul line, going a perfect 14 of 14 in the victory.
Dec. 20 8:37 PM PT9:37 PM MT10:37 PM CT11:37 PM ET4:37 GMT12:37 9:37 PM MST11:37 PM EST8:37 UAE05:3723:37 ET10:37 PM CT2:37 - Pierce had 24 points and 10 boards for the Nets in Friday's OT loss to the Sixers.
Analysis: Pierce can still get it done on occasion but he's not in the lineup all the time so it's hard to predict his usage.
Dec. 19 10:31 PM PT11:31 PM MT12:31 AM CT1:31 AM ET6:31 GMT14:31 11:31 PM MST1:31 AM EST10:31 UAE07:311:31 ET12:31 AM CT4:31 - Pierce had a season-high 27 points in a 113-107 loss to Washington on Wednesday night.

Dec. 10 2:57 PM PT3:57 PM MT4:57 PM CT5:57 PM ET22:57 GMT6:57 3:57 PM MST5:57 PM EST2:57 UAE (+1)23:5717:57 ET4:57 PM CT20:57 - Pierce returned to the Brooklyn Nets against Boston, coming off the bench against his former team after a quick return from a broken right hand.
Analysis: Pierce was expected to miss two to four weeks after he was injured on Nov. 29 at Houston, but ended up sitting out just four games before returning to practice Monday.
Nov. 30 6:48 PM PT7:48 PM MT8:48 PM CT9:48 PM ET2:48 GMT10:48 7:48 PM MST9:48 PM EST6:48 UAE (+1)03:4821:48 ET8:48 PM CT0:48 - Pierce will be out two to four weeks with a broken bone in his right hand, the biggest loss yet for the injury-plagued Brooklyn Nets.
Analysis: Pierce had been diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture of the third metacarpal of his right, shooting hand. He was hurt Friday in the first half of a loss at Houston. He is averaging 12.4 points.
Nov. 16 7:07 PM PT8:07 PM MT9:07 PM CT10:07 PM ET3:07 GMT11:07 8:07 PM MST10:07 PM EST7:07 UAE (+1)04:0722:07 ET9:07 PM CT1:07 - The injury-riddled Brooklyn Nets will be without four starters when they play the Los Angeles Clippers. Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez, Paul Pierce and Deron Williams all were injured for Saturday night's game at Staples Center.
Analysis: Williams hurt his left ankle in the first quarter of Friday night's overtime win in Phoenix. Pierce has a groin injury, while Garnett and Lopez have ankle injuries.
Oct. 31 9:13 PM PT10:13 PM MT11:13 PM CT12:13 AM ET4:13 GMT12:13 9:13 PM MST11:13 PM EST8:13 UAE05:130:13 ET10:13 PM CT2:13 - Pierce scored 17 points in his debut with the Nets.
