Dante Cunningham played just 15 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday with four points and one steal.
The Scoop:His minutes were cut severely tonight and he looked really bad on defense. Cunningham had back-to-back impressive games before tonight, but Tyreke Evans coming back and pushing Ryan Anderson to more power forward hurt DC. He's only worth owning in very deep leagues.
Dante Cunningham hit a clutch jumper against the Rockets during a win on Thursday, finishing with 15 points, five rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

Dante Cunningham made his season debut on Thursday with two points, three rebounds and one steal in 12 minutes.
The Scoop:He made just 1-of-6 from the field and the Pelicans are in desperation mode in trying to find a wing next to Tyreke Evans. The team was nice enough to give Cunningham a second chance, but he's going to have to play well to stay on the team.

The New Orleans Pelicans Thursday inked veteran NBA forward Dante Cunningham, who had been in search of a team since August when domestic violence charges against him were dropped. Cunningham owns career averages of 6.2 points and 3.9 rebounds over five NBA seasons, the last two with the Minnesota Timberwolves. In that complaint, a woman told police that during an argument at Cunningham's Minneapolis home, he slammed her against the wall and choked her.
