  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Not on injury report

    O'Neale (knee) isn't on the injury report for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference First Round against the 76ers on Saturday, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    O'Neale missed Sunday's regular-season finale against Philadelphia due to left knee injury management, but he'll be back in action to begin the playoffs. Over four appearances in April, he's averaged 8.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.5 assists in 29.5 minutes per game.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Out Sunday

    O'Neale will not play in Sunday's game against the 76ers due to left knee injury management, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    O'Neale will sit out the Nets' regular-season finale along with Dorian Finney-Smith (wrist), Cameron Johnson (knee) and Seth Curry (ankle). WIth Brooklyn severely shorthanded Sunday, Yuta Watanabe and RaiQuan Gray should each see plenty of run.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Returns to bench

    O'Neale isn't in the starting five for Friday's game versus the Magic.

    O'Neale will be replaced by Dorian Finney-Smith in the starting lineup Friday. O'Neale is averaging 7.7 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 26.2 minutes across his last 10 games coming off the bench.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Excels in place of Finney-Smith

    O'Neale ended with 15 points (5-10 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight assists, seven rebounds and two blocks across 37 minutes during Wednesday's 123-108 victory over the Pistons.

    O'Neale drew the starting nod in place of Dorian Finney-Smith (wrist) and was one of six Nets players to finish with double figures in scoring. He achieved his scoring on efficient shooting from three-point range and supplemented that output with strong marks in three other categories. Finney-Smith is expected to return to the lineup for Friday's game against the Magic, so O'Neale is likely to head back to the bench and see a dramatic reduction in playing time, which will make it difficult for him to replicate Wednesday's magnificent stat line.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Draws start Wednesday

    O'Neale will start Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    O'Neale will draw the start with Dorian Finney-Smith (wrist) sidelined. Across 52 starts this season, O'Neale has averaged 9.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists in 34.1 minutes, but the majority of those starts came when Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving were still with Brooklyn.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Multi-cat performance in loss

    O'Neale accumulated eight points (3-10 FG, 2-8 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists, one block and two steals over 35 minutes during Tuesday's 107-102 loss to Minnesota.

    O'Neale played 35 minutes off the bench, contributing across all major categories. Despite playing as the sixth man for the new-look Nets, O'Neale has been doing just enough to warrant attention, even in 12-team formats. While typically a low-volume contributor, his ability to chip in across the board makes him a sneaky option, especially in roto leagues.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Off injury report

    O'Neale (knee) is off the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

    After sitting out the second game of the Nets' recent back-to-back, O'Neale will get back on the court Wednesday. This month, he's averaging 8.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.2 steals in 27.1 minutes.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Dealing with left knee soreness

    O'Neale (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Magic due to left knee soreness.

    O'Neale played 27 minutes during Saturday's win over the Heat, but he may take a seat for the second half of Brooklyn's back-to-back. If that's the case, more minutes will be available for Yuta Watanabe and Joe Harris.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Out Sunday

    O'Neale (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Orlando, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    O'Neale will hit the sidelines for the second leg of Brooklyn's back-to-back set, which should result in some additional minutes for Yuta Watanabe and Joe Harris. O'Neale's next chance to play will come Wednesday versus Houston.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Quality production off bench

    O'Neale notched eight points (3-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 27 minutes during Saturday's 129-100 win over the Heat.

    O'Neale continues to garner a sizable bench role for the Nets and has appeared in 12 of their first 13 March contests, posting 8.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.2 steals in 27.1 minutes. The veteran forward is a steady contributor in numerous categories on a regular basis, but his overall potential is reliant on his scoring ability, which is usually tied to how well he's shooting the ball from deep. He's made multiple three-pointers in eight of his last nine matchups and is connecting on 43.2 percent of his 4.9 attempts per game during that stretch.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Shines in bench role

    O'Neale notched 12 points (3-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 15 rebounds, two assists and three steals over 36 minutes during Friday's 124-123 overtime win over the Timberwolves.

    O'Neale was tremendous in the win, grabbing a career-high 15 rebounds. That makes back-to-back double-doubles for O'Neale, having now played at least 30 minutes in two straight games. This does not automatically make him a must-roster player, especially since the Nets have a plethora of wing options at their disposal. However, he is worth considering for streaming purposes given his ability to provide out-of-position stats.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Clear of injury report

    O'Neale (knee) isn't listed on the injury report ahead of Friday's game versus the Timberwolves.

    O'Neale was one of numerous Nets players who were rested with different issues during Thursday's game against the Bucks. Most of the regular cast will be back in action Friday, O'Neale included, in the second game of a back-to-back set. O'Neale has settled into a bench role since the trade deadline, averaging 6.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.1 steals-plus-blocks over 24.6 minutes per game in his 10 appearances since the role change.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Won't play Thursday

    O'Neale is out for Thursday's game versus the Bucks due to left knee soreness, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    O'Neale is set to miss his first game since Jan. 2 on Thursday. Dorian Finney-Smith, Yuta Watanabe and Joe Harris are candidates to receive extended minutes in his absence. O'Neale's next chance to suit up is Friday's matchup with Minnesota.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Solid line in 34 minutes

    O'Neale finished with 10 points (4-11 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, three assists and one steal across 34 minutes during Friday's 115-105 victory over Boston.

    O'Neale scored in double digits for just the second time in his last 10 games. His offense and defense have trailed off in recent weeks. In that same stretch, O'Neale is only averaging 0.6 steals and 0.3 blocks.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Not starting Saturday

    O'Neale will come off the bench for Saturday's game against the 76ers, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    Saturday's tilt will mark O'Neale's first appearance off the bench this season, having started in each of his 52 appearances. Although the Nets traded Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant prior to the deadline, the returns of the superstar duo included a surplus of capable wing players. Because of this, it's unclear where O'Neale fits into the rotation, but he should not be considered in standard leagues after averaging 9.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists across 34.1 minutes.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Strong game from deep in loss

    O'Neale had 15 points (5-9 FG, 5-7 3Pt), one rebound and three assists over 35 minutes during Monday's 124-116 loss to the Clippers.

    O'Neale was one of two Nets players to connect on five or more threes, finishing as one of four players in double figures in scoring Monday. O'Neale has finished with at least five threes in three games this season, and Monday's performance was his first of that sort since Dec. 23.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Steady production in victory

    O'Neale closed Monday's 121-104 win over the Lakers with 14 points (5-10 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block across 28 minutes.

    The Nets had a trio of guards score 20-plus points Monday, but O'Neale put up strong numbers of his own from the frontcourt in the victory. The veteran forward made half of his 10 shot attempts -- including three of seven from beyond the arc -- to finish with exactly 14 points for the second straight game. He also contributed across the stat sheet, finishing with multiple steals for the first time in nine contests and adding six boards and three assists. O'Neale is far from a prolific fantasy producer, but he consistently plays major minutes and is averaging career-best per-game marks in points (9.5), assists (4.0) and three-pointers (2.3) through 47 games.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Limited impact Thursday

    O'Neale racked up three points (1-7 FG, 1-5 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one steal over 29 minutes before fouling out of Thursday's 130-122 loss to Detroit.

    O'Neale dealt with a sore left hip ahead of Thursday's matchup, but the issue didn't prevent him from playing. However, he got into some foul trouble and was held under 30 minutes of playing time for the first time since Jan. 17. He's been held to single-digit scoring totals in four of the last six matchups and has averaged 8.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 32.0 minutes per game during that time.
