Reed has been a DNP-CD in each of the Nets' last eight games. The Saint Louis alum held down a minor bench role last month, but he hasn't played since Jan. 26 and appears to be stuck at the end of the bench for the foreseeable future. The Nets took a flyer on Reed, who impressed during summer league, this offseason, but they have little invested in the 25-year-old, so it's unlikely the team makes a point to get him more run after the All-Star break.
Reed (personal) returned to the court in Saturday's 114-86 loss to the Hawks, finishing with three points (1-2 FG, 1-4 FT), two rebounds, one assist, and one steal. Reed missed Friday's game against the Trail Blazers, but rejoined the Nets in time for the second half of their back-to-back set. He's seen only marginal playing time as a member of the Nets' second unit this season, averaging four points and 2.8 rebounds across 9.6 minutes per contest.
Reed will miss Friday's game against the Trail Blazers due to personal reasons, Mike Mazzeo of ESPN.com reports. The loss of Reed on Friday won't be too significant, as he is only averaging 10 minutes per game through 20 games this season. Fellow power forward Thomas Robinson is a likely benefactor of his bench minutes for the night. Reed's next chance to return to the court will be on Saturday when the Nets visit the Hawks.
Reed posted two points (1-2 FG) across four minutes in Sunday's 100-85 loss to the Timberwolves. Reed has seen the floor in six straight games to solidify a low-end spot in the Nets' rotation, but it'll be difficult for him to attain much fantasy appeal when he's consistently seeing under 10 minutes. Over his eight appearances this season, Reed is averaging just 3.3 points and 2.5 rebounds.
Reed (finger) is active for Saturday's game in Cleveland. He had been out all season after tearing the UCL in his right thumb during the preseason. While Reed is active Saturday, he is not a lock to see much action, and it would be best to take a wait and see approach in fantasy leagues.
