Sharpe totaled 19 points (5-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks during Saturday's 114-110 win over the G League Raptors. Sharpe was a menace on both sides of the ball, contributing in multiple stat categories. Unfortunately, that also includes five turnovers. Nonetheless, the big man has put up a double-double in both of his G League contests, and he should remain a solid piece of Long Island's starting five while he bides his time for a return to the NBA.
Sharpe (personal) rejoined the Nets on Monday and will be available for Tuesday's game against the Warriors, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports. The rookie big man is back with the team after missing Sunday's 120-96 win over the Thunder while attending to the personal matter. Sharpe hasn't been featured in the Brooklyn rotation this season, and that's unlikely to change Tuesday even with Paul Millsap (personal) and Nicolas Claxton (illness) both sidelined.
Millsap is out at Oklahoma City on Sunday due to personal reasons. Sharpe is sitting out at least one game. Fantasy managers will not have benefited from the center anyways, considering he averaged 4.0 minutes across his last six Nets matchups.
The Nets recalled Shape from the G League's Long Island Nets ahead of Monday's game against the Bulls, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports. Sharpe will give the Nets some additional depth in the frontcourt ahead of the second half of a back-to-back set. Brooklyn hasn't released an updated injury report ahead of Monday's contest, but one or two of Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge could be candidates to sit for rest purposes. Even if that's the case, Sharpe likely wouldn't handle much more than a minor rotational role Monday.
Sharpe (toe) is off the injury report for Friday's game against the 76ers. Sharpe was unavailable for the opener due to a sprained right toe, but he's good to go for Friday. That said, it seems likely he'll be out of the rotation to start the year.
