Jordan scored 11 points (4-5 FG, 3-4 FT) while adding 15 rebounds, four assists and three blocks in 29 minutes during Sunday's 110-107 win over the Bulls. Moved into the starting lineup by interim coach Jacque Vaughn, Jordan delivered his 13th double-double of the season and his highest block total in a month. The veteran center had been averaging 24.4 minutes a game since the beginning of February, so his workload only increased slightly in his new role, and it's not yet clear whether Vaughn intends to keep the younger Jarrett Allen on the bench moving forward. If Jordan does remain in the starting five, however, his fantasy outlook would get a slight bump.
Interim coach Jacque Vaughn said that Jordan will start at center in Sunday's game against the Bulls, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports. In what amounts to his first major decision since replacing Kenny Atkinson on the bench, Vaughn will drop Jarrett Allen from the starting five to make room for Jordan. The choice is a curious one given that Allen, a 2017 first-round pick, is seemingly a bigger part of the team's long-term plans, but neither player's fantasy outlook may end up changing drastically by the lineup change. Jordan had already been in a rough timeshare with Allen this season, with the former averaging 21.8 minutes per game to the latter's 25.9. It's not clear if Jordan's move into the starting five will result in a notable uptick in playing time, if any.
Jordan posted two points (1-1 FG) and four rebounds across 14 minutes during Wednesday's 118-79 loss to the Grizzlies. The Nets were clearly sluggish on the second night of a back-to-back following Tuesday's overtime win over the Celtics. Jordan had one of his worst performances of the season, taking just one shot in 14 minutes and committing two turnovers.
Jordan posted eight points (3-4 FG, 2-2 FT), 15 rebounds, one assist and one block across 35 minutes during Tuesday's 129-120 overtime victory against the Celtics. Jordan and Jarrett Allen often split time, but Jordan got the vast majority of the action Tuesday. The effort marked Jordan's sixth performance this season with at least 15 boards, and he's averaging 28.7 minutes in those games.
Jordan managed 16 points (6-8 FG, 4-5 FT) and 16 rebounds in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 110-106 loss to the Wizards. Jordan stepped up with Jarrett Allen fouling out in only 18 minutes. Jordan has logged 11 double-doubles through 49 appearances this season, this after managing 12 in 19 games with the Knicks and 30 in 50 games with the Mavericks in 2018-19. His six-year streak of tallying 40-plus double-doubles has come to an end, but Jordan is still serviceable enough to hold some value in deep leagues.
