Vince Carter    G/F  Kings

 

 

Vince Carter picked up a DNP-CD on Monday vs. the Thunder. Coach Dave Joerger said that he will be resting two veterans in every game going forward, so Carter is looking at a lot more DNPs in the second half of the season. Expect more minutes for guys like Buddy Hield and Bogdan Bogdanovic at Carter's expense.

Carter's role will be reduced for the remainder of the season to allow younger players more time on the court to develop, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Carter has only been averaging 15.4 minutes on the court this season, but he, and other veterans, will be asked to take entire games off moving forward to free up more reps for younger players. With him out of the picture on certain nights, players like Malachi Richardson, Justin Jackson and JaKarr Sampson could start finding their way into the back end of the rotation.

Carter tallied 12 points (5-12 FG, 2-7 3Pt), eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block across 31 minutes in Saturday's 106-98 win over the Nuggets. The ageless veteran has now surprised on two occasions over the last three games in which he's seen action, with Saturday's effort marking his second double-digit scoring effort in that span. Carter exploded for a season-high 24 points in 30 minutes against the Cavaliers on Dec. 27, and as he'd done in that contest, he remained aggressive in his extended stretch of playing time Saturday. The 40-year-old equaled the season-high 12 shots he'd put up versus Cleveland while also hauling in a season-high number of rebounds. While the resurgent effort was undeniably eye-opening, it's highly unusual for Carter to see anywhere close to the degree of playing time he logged Saturday -- especially on a rebuilding Kings squad -- making it extremely difficult for him to become relevant in even the deepest of formats.

Vince Carter finished with 12 points, eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and a blocked shot in 31 minutes off the bench Saturday against the Nuggets. The 40-year-old continues to be an important part of Dave Joerger's rotation, as he finds time to use the ageless veteran at the expense of some of his younger players. However, nagging injuries and erratic playing time, as well as the fact he is 40, makes Vinsanity a rather inconsistent fantasy option. He is only worth using in deeper leagues.

Vince Carter said he plans to play one more season. At 40 years of age, Carter is the oldest player in the NBA, but still managed to score a season-high 24 points in a win over the Cavs earlier this week. As far as future plans, Carter says he believes the 2018-19 campaign will be his final season. "I still say one more year. That is just how I’ve been feeling. It is what it is. One more. I’d like to play one more year. Then, I’d probably just walk away."

Carter registered 24 points (10-12 FG, 4-5 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block across 30 minutes Wednesday in Sacramento's win over Cleveland. Carter erupted for 24 points after not registering any minutes in three consecutive games. The surprise performance from the 40-year-old provided the boost that Sacramento needed to take down Cleveland. Carter hasn't been particularly relevant in fantasy for a few seasons now, but it's clear that the guy can still hoop when given the opportunity.

Carter (rib) was available for Tuesday's game against the Clippers but did not see the floor. Carter came into Tuesday nursing a strained muscle in his rib area, and while he was technically an option off the bench for Dave Joerger, the 40-year-old picked up his third straight DNP-CD. Much like several of his teammates', Carter's minutes have been difficult to predict this season. He's averaging 16.6 minutes per game in the month of December when he sees the floor, but he's also been a DNP-CD four times, while playing fewer than 10 minutes on two more occasions. Regardless, Carter can be ignored in fantasy leagues of nearly any size.

Carter (rib) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's matchup with the Clippers, Sean Cunningham of ABC10 (KXTV) Sacramento reports. Carter is dealing with a rib strain, but the Kings aren't all too concerned with it and he's now expected to take the court as usual. That said, Carter hasn't seen a consistent role for much of this season and the fact that he's dealt with a recent injury is not encouraging for his overall workload. Look for another update just prior to tip-off.

Vince Carter (ribs) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game against the Clippers. Whether he's available or not, Carter can't be considered a viable target in fantasy hoops.

Carter is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Clippers due to a rib strain, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports. It's unclear when Carter picked up the injury. If he's held out, Bogdan Bogdanovich is a strong candidate to see extra run.
