Foye poured in 13 points (4-6 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added four assists and one rebound across 28 minutes in a 122-104 loss to the Thunder on Tuesday. While it was a nice offensive night from Foye, he had provided a combined five points on 2-of-10 shooting from the floor over the previous three games, so there's not much reason to get invested in him. He's cleared the 20-minute mark just three times in the last 12 games and probably won't stand to gain much playing time over the final month of the season with coach Kenny Atkinson likely eager to evaluate the team's younger options at the two wing spots.
Foye scored 14 points (5-7 FG, 4-4 3Pt) while adding three rebounds, two steals and one block across 16 minutes in Monday's 122-109 win over the Grizzlies. He may have started, but he earned just 16 minutes of action as the guards that came off the bench played efficiently for the Nets. This situation continues to be a committee approach as no one has separated themselves from the others to this point in the season, and with the Nets nearly out of the postseason, they can continue to afford trying out different lineups and see which players have good chemistry together. Foye has only proven to be a sharpshooter from outside, which limits his chances of earning more significant minutes in the future.
Foye gathered 15 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two assists, and one rebound across 26 minutes during Friday's 108-99 loss to the Heat. Foye, like many players on the Nets, has seen his role fluctuate throughout the season, but was able to put together a solid outing Friday against a Heat squad who have now won 13 straight games. Foye had been ice cold from beyond the arc coming into Friday's contest, knocking down only 26.3 percent of his three-point attempts in the previous seven games. That being said, he was able score in other ways against the Heat, shooting only two threes and getting to the foul line four times. His next chance to build on Friday's performance comes Saturday on the second half of a back-to-back set against the 76ers.
Foye put up three points (1-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt), two assists, one rebound and one steal across 23 minutes in a 106-97 loss to the Pacers on Friday. Foye has started the last seven games at shooting guard, but his addition to the top unit hasn't been a solution to the team's ongoing woes, as the Nets have lost all of those contests. The veteran is averaging just 5.1 points (on 31.8% shooting), 3.4 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.0 three-pointers in 23.7 minutes per game, making it exceedingly difficult to wring fantasy value out of him, even in most deeper leagues.
Foye will start at point guard for Monday's game against the Spurs, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports. With Jeremy Lin (hamstring) set to miss at least the next three weeks, the Nets continue to be without their starting point guard. After starting Spencer Dinwiddie on Saturday, Foye will instead jump into the starting lineup at point guard for the Nets, which likely pushes Dinwiddie to the bench. Foye's promotion to the starting five, as well as the absences of both Lin and Joe Harris (ankle), should provide Foye the opportunity to log extended minutes.
