  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: Will be converted to full NBA deal

    The Nets will convert Edwards to a standard NBA contract in advance of the postseason, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Edwards has been playing on a two-way deal, meaning he would not be eligible to play in the postseason. In order to keep him available for the play-in tournament, and beyond, the Nets will move him to a full NBA deal and part ways with James Johnson in order to clear a roster spot. Edwards, a rookie out of Pepperdine, has appeared in 46 games this season, averaging 5.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.0 threes in 20.1 minutes per contest.

  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: Solid production as reserve

    Edwards notched five points (2-7 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal across 24 minutes during Tuesday's 118-105 victory over Houston.

    With Bruce Brown back in action following a one-game absence due to an illness, Edwards reverted to his usual reserve role, but the rookie actually played five more minutes Tuesday than he did during Saturday's start. The 21-year-old forward struggled offensively, but he grabbed seven rebounds -- his most since Dec. 14 -- and finished with at least one steal and one block in the same game for the seventh time this season.

  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: Back to bench

    With Bruce Brown back in action, Edwards will move back to the bench after starting Saturday's loss to the Hawks. Edwards is unlikely to see enough run to be worth targeting in DFS contests.

  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: Starting Saturday

    Edwards will start Saturday's game against the Hawks, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    Edwards and Patty Mills join the starting five due to absences from Seth Curry (ankle) and Bruce Brown (illness). In Edwards' past nine starts, he's averaged 3.1 points and 4.3 rebounds in 20.6 minutes.

  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: Grabs six rebounds in start

    Edwards closed with three points (1-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt), six rebounds, one block and one steal in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 132-120 loss to the Grizzlies.

    With Seth Curry (ankle) and Goran Dragic (knee) sidelined, Edwards joined the starting lineup for the first time since Feb. 17. Across 21 starts this season, the rookie has averaged 6.6 points and 4.4 rebounds in 27.6 minutes per game.

  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: Joins starting five

    Edwards will start Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.

    With Seth Curry (ankle) and Goran Dragic (knee) sidelined, Edwards will rejoin the starting lineup for the first time since Feb. 17. The 21-year-old is averaging 6.1 points and 3.7 rebounds in 21.5 minutes per game this season.

  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: Gets back on track Tuesday

    Edwards closed Tuesday's 150-108 victory over Orlando with 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one steal across 25 minutes.

    After playing just seven total minutes over the last five contests, Edwards returned to the rotation during Tuesday's blowout win. The rookie scored his most points since Jan. 23 and grabbed his most rebounds since Dec. 16, but his increased playing time and production likely stem from the absences of Cam Thomas (back) and Seth Curry (ankle).

  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: Moves to bench

    Edwards will come off the bench for Thursday's game against the Celtics, Billy Reinhardt of NetsDaily.com reports.

    Edwards will shift to the bench as James Johnson enters the starting five for the Nets' first game coming out of the All-Star break. He should still see plenty of run as a reserve on Thursday.

  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: Rejoins starting five

    Edwards is in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Wizards, Billy Reinhardt of NetsDaily.com reports.

    Edwards is back in the starting lineup after coming off the bench in Wednesday's win over the Knicks. With James Johnson (wrist) ruled out, Edwards could see more usage than he would otherwise. The 21-year-old is averaging 6.7 points and 4.3 rebounds across 24.9 minutes per game this season.

  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: Will come off bench Wednesday

    Edwards will come off the bench Wednesday against the Knicks, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    Edwards had started the previous 18 games at power forward but will come off the bench Wednesday behind veteran James Johnson. Edwards had only averaged 22.0 minutes per game over his last five games, so this may not be a huge downgrade. In the seven games this season in which the 21-year-old came of the bench, he averaged 6.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 17.6 minutes.

  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: Delivers second-best line of season

    Edwards posted 13 points (5-13 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, three steals and one block in 29 minutes Saturday in the Nets' 115-111 loss to the Heat.

    Edwards has started in each of the Nets' last 17 games, but he's typically struggled to turn in meaningful numbers while serving as a low-usage, three-and-D forward. The rookie changed the narrative Saturday, turning in what was his best stat line since he erupted for 17 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and two steals in 44 minutes back on Dec. 14, when Brooklyn was shorthanded due to several COVID-19-related absences. Edwards looks like he'll continue to remain in a starting role at least until Kevin Durant (knee) returns, but the 21-year-old shouldn't be viewed as a roster-worthy option outside of deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: Emerging as defensive stalwart

    Edwards tallied four points (1-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, two blocks and one assist across 32 minutes Saturday in the Nets' 110-106 to the Warriors.

    Though he hasn't come close to matching Kevin Durant (knee) from a production standpoint on the offensive end while replacing him as the Nets' starting power forward over the past seven games, Edwards has impressed with his work on the defensive end. Edwards' efforts were critical in neutralizing Stephen Curry (19 points on 5-for-18 shooting from the field), though the Warriors received enough support elsewhere to come away with the victory. The rookie's value to the Nets is evident in his playing time -- he's logged 30-plus minutes in seven of his last eight appearances -- but it hasn't meant much from a fantasy standpoint. With averages of 8.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.6 three-pointers, 1.0 blocks and 0.9 steals in 34.1 minutes over that aforementioned eight-game stretch, Edwards is best viewed as a streamer for defensive stats.

  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: Efficient against Minnesota

    Edwards ended with 15 points (6-10 FG, 3-7 3Pt) and five rebounds in 29 minutes during Sunday's 136-125 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Edwards remained in the starting lineup for a seventh consecutive game since Kevin Durant (knee) remained sidelined, and he scored in double figures after being held to five points in each of the last two contests. The 21-year-old should continue to have relatively consistent opportunities to produce in Durant's absence.

  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: All-around performance in win

    Edwards contributed 16 points (6-10 FG, 4-5 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists and one block in 37 minutes during Saturday's 120-105 win over the Pelicans.

    Edwards drew his third straight start but was quickly thrust into a bigger role after Kevin Durant left the game with a knee injury after playing just 15 minutes. Durant is slated to miss at least a month after being diagnosed with an MCL sprain Sunday, so the rookie second-round pick could be a candidate for an increased role during the duration of Durant's absence.
