News: Pierce (shoulder) will take the court Tuesday against the Knicks, the Bergen Record reports. Impact: Among the menagerie of injuries he's dealt with in his career, Pierce has rarely suffered through a shoulder concern. However, a quick search of his medical history reveals just two other instances across 16 seasons with the particular body part. The output from his last five appearances -- 13 points (on 50 percent shooting), 4.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.2 treys in 25.8 minutes per game -- approximates his potential output. Moreover, don't be surprised if he sits out the second game of the team's back-to-back set Wednesday at Cleveland.(RotoWire, )

News: Pierce (shoulder) is considered a game-time decision to play Tuesday versus the Knicks, the New York Post reports. Impact: Pierce could be rested as a precaution to ensure the veteran is in top condition for Brooklyn's upcoming playoff series. Along with Pierce, teammates Deron Williams (knee) and Joe Johnson (calf) are also game-time decisions, so the Nets could trot out an unfamiliar starting five Tuesday night.(RotoWire, )

News: Pierce (hip) scored 13 points (5-14 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 2-6 FT) with six rebounds and four assists in 29 minutes in the loss to Atlanta on Friday. Impact: Pierce missed Wednesday's loss to the Magic with a hip pointer. He's only hit 3-of-14 on 3-pointers (21.4 percent) in his last three games but shouldn't be discounted in the playoffs.(RotoWire, )

News: Pierce has become the 18th player in NBA history to reach 25,000 points. Impact: 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. (STATS, 7:56pm)

News: Pierce (hip) is expected to play Friday versus the Hawks, the New York Post reports. Impact: Pierce missed Wednesday's win over the Heat with what Brooklyn termed as a right hip pointer, but should play Friday considering coach Jason Kidd said everyone besides Shaun Livingston (toe) would be available. That comes as good news for Pierce's fantasy owners, since the future Hall of Famer is averaging over 14 points and four rebounds, including two three-pointers per game, over his past 10 outings. With Pierce expected to reclaim his starting position, Mirza Teletovic figures to move back to a reserve role Friday.(RotoWire, )

News: Pierce (hip) will miss Wednesday's game against the Magic, ESPN New York reports. Impact: Pierce will miss Wednesday's game with what's being called a right hip pointer.

News: 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. Impact: 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.(STATS, 9:13pm)
