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

|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: 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 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.

|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.

|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.
