  • Nets' Jevon Carter: Gets garbage-time burn

    Carter posted six points (2-4 FG, 2-4 3Pt) and one rebound in nine minutes off the bench Monday in the Nets' 118-104 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Brooklyn ran a nine-man rotation for most of the night, as Carter didn't check into the contest until the Nets trailed by 26 with 9:24 remaining in the fourth quarter. The fourth-year guard hasn't been able to find consistent playing time since exiting the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols Dec. 23, and with Kyrie Irving expected to debut as a part-time player beginning Wednesday in Indiana, Carter's path to minutes will become even more blocked during road games.

  • Nets' Jevon Carter: Exits protocols

    Nets head coach Steve Nash said Thursday that Carter has cleared the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    In addition to Carter, James Harden and Paul Millsap were cleared to end their quarantines and rejoin Brooklyn, but Nash said that rookies Cam Thomas, Kessler Edwards and David Duke have all entered the protocols. As a result, Brooklyn is still without the league-required eight available players, which prompted the postponement of Thursday's game against the Trail Blazers one day earlier. Assuming Brooklyn is able to clear at least two more players in the next two days, Carter and the Nets will return to action Christmas Day against the Lakers. It's unclear how Carter looks from a conditioning standpoint after missing the team's past three games, but the Nets may not have the luxury of easing him back in with a light minutes load Saturday.

  • Nets' Jevon Carter: Lands in protocols

    Carter entered health and safety protocols Tuesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    The Nets now have five players in COVID-19 protocols. While Carter himself hasn't played a significant role lately, averaging just 4.6 minutes per game over the Nets' last eight contests, the team could certainly use all the depth it can get at this point. For now, the Nets still have enough available players to continue playing their scheduled games, but that could change if the outbreak continues to spread.

  • Nets' Jevon Carter: Back in bench role

    Carter is coming off the bench for Monday's game against Washington, Billy Reinhardt of reports.

    Carter drew the start Sunday against Charlotte but was held to three points across 26 minutes. He's averaged 22.7 minutes through his first three contests, so he should still see around 20 minutes even off the bench.

  • Nets' Jevon Carter: Starting vs. Hornets

    Carter is in the Nets' starting lineup Sunday versus Charlotte.

    The Nets are having Blake Griffin rest and utilizing a guard-heavy starting lineup Sunday. Carter will try to redeem himself after scoring three points across his last two games.

  • Nets' Jevon Carter: Scores 13 points off bench

    Carter recorded 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and two steals across 20 minutes during a 119-115 preseason win Friday versus Milwaukee.

    Carter scored more points than any other Nets bench player did. Those indicate what he could do but may not be enough. Carter is competing against proven veteran Patty Mills only to back up James Harden, a younger and less injury-prone superstar than Chris Paul.

  • Suns' Jevon Carter: Traded to Brooklyn

    Carter was traded to the Nets from the Suns on Thursday, along with the 29th pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, in exchange for Landry Shamet, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    The two teams swap reserve guards, but the deal also lands the Nets an extra late-first-round pick, giving them five total selections in Thursday night's draft. Carter, a former star at West Virginia, saw his role fluctuate throughout most of last season, but he was essentially dropped from the rotation once the postseason began. Across 60 regular-season contests, Carter averaged 4.1 points, 1.5 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 0.5 steals in 12.0 minutes. He scored in double figures five times, headlined by a 19-point, 10-rebound, nine-assist, three-steal eruption in 43 minutes against the Spurs in the regular-season finale.

  • Suns' Jevon Carter: Nearly triple-doubles

    Carter scored 19 points (9-22 FG, 1-6 3Pt) to go along with 10 rebounds, nine assists and three steals across 43 minutes in Sunday's win over the Spurs.

    Carter drew his first start in the season finale with Chris Paul and Devin Booker resting. He recorded a career-high 43 minutes, which led to his first career double-double and just one assist short of a triple-double. Carter averaged only 11.4 minutes in 59 games prior to Sunday's contest, and he should fill a similar role as the Suns progress into the playoffs.

  • Suns' Jevon Carter: Making first start of season

    Carter will start Sunday's finale against the Spurs.

    The Suns are resting Chris Paul and Devin Booker, so Cameron Payne and Carter are starting in the finale. In the seven games this season that Carter has seen at least 20 minutes, he's averaged 9.3 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.4 steals. Sunday is his first start of the season.

  • Suns' Jevon Carter: Leads Suns with 17 points

    Carter finished Saturday's loss to San Antonio with 17 points (7-11 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 0-2 FT) and one steal across 25 minutes.

    Suffice to say, few predicted that Carter would be Phoenix's leading scorer in the battle between Western Conference teams. His opportunity came partly as the result of offensive struggles by Chris Paul (six points) and Devin Booker (15 points) and largely due to the blowout nature of the contest. Carter has notched double-digit scoring only four times all season, with three of those instances coming in his past five games. His arrow seems to be pointing up, though Carter's lack of peripheral stats and his inconsistent playing time still make him a non-factor in fantasy leagues.

  • Suns' Jevon Carter: Limited minutes since break

    Carter is averaging 2.6 points, 0.7 steals, 0.4 rebounds and 0.2 steals in 6.9 minutes while shooting 47.4 percent from the field in his last nine games.

    Carter's been listed as a healthy DNP in seven of his team's last 16 games, receiving double-digit minutes in only three of the nine games he's played in. The guard has shot well given the inconsistent playing time, making one of his roughly two shots per game over the nine-game stretch. While the 25-year-old has had an off-year compared to last season's stats and minutes, it's an encouraging sign that he's been able to hang around a deep Suns rotation.
