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.
Foye (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 105-95 loss to the 76ers on Sunday.
Jeremy Lin remains out with a hamstring injury, but the loss of a key backcourt option hasn't been enough to create more playing time for Foye. With Isaiah Whitehead and Spencer Dinwiddie representing the top two options at point guard and Bojan Bogdanovic and Sean Kilpatrick slotting ahead of him shooting guard, Foye has been squeezed out of the rotation entirely the last two games. Since the rebuilding Nets have no illusions of contending for a playoff spot, the 33-year-old Foye seems unlikely to see his minutes grow as the season wears on.
Foye will move back to the bench for Sunday's matchup with the Trail Blazers, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
With Jeremy Lin (hamstring) still out and Isaiah Whitehead recently recovering from a concussion, Foye was able to get some run as the team's starting point guard. However, he's really struggled during that time, especially offensively, and has combined to shoot just 4-of-13 from the field and 2-of-8 from the three-point line over the team's last three games. Lin remains sidelined, but the Nets have opted to push Whitehead back into the starting five, meaning Foye will come off the bench and could see a decrease in his minutes load.
Foye will start at point guard Friday against the Thunder.
Head coach Kenny Atkinson felt it was time for a change at the lead guard spot, so Foye will move into the starting lineup in place of Sean Kilpatrick. The change could result in a few extra minutes for Foye, but he and Kilpatrick still figure to share the point guard duties in some fashion.
Foye (hamstring) played 14 minutes in Tuesday's 119-110 win over the Timberwolves, supplying three points (1-3 FG, 1-3 3Pt), one rebound and one assist.
After missing the Nets' first six games, Foye ended up settling in as the backup point guard to rookie Isaiah Whitehead in his season debut. Whitehead has performed erratically to begin his NBA career, so once Foye is further removed from the hamstring injury, we could see the veteran cut into Whitehead's workload.
Coach Kenny Atkinson said that Foye (hamstring) would be ready to make his season debut Tuesday against the Timberwolves, Laura Albanese of Newsday reports.
Foye, who has been sidelined since late in the preseason by the strained right hamstring, was listed as probable heading into the Nets' last game Friday against the Hornets, but despite being active for the contest, he failed to see the floor. The Nets may have simply been acting cautiously by holding out Foye an extra game, but with Atkinson indicating that he prefers to use Sean Kilpatrick at his natural shooting guard spot, it's likely that Foye will be asked to immediately enter the rotation as the primary backup at point guard behind projected starter Isaiah Whitehead. With Jeremy Lin (hamstring) expected to miss several more games, Foye will likely see more time than originally anticipated running the offense.
Foye (hamstring) is listed as probable for Friday's game against the Hornets, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Foye has yet to play this season due to the hamstring injury he suffered in training camp, but it appears he is ready to make his season debut Friday night. Foye's expected role has not been revealed, but starting point guard Jeremy Lin (hamstring) is out at least two weeks and Greivis Vasquez (ankle) and Chris LeVert (foot) are also sidelined, so Foye could jump right into the starting lineup Friday night.
Foye (hamstring) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Pistons, Anthony Puccio of Nets Daily reports.
Foye was listed as doubtful heading into the contest, so his absence was fully expected. Bojan Bogdanovic and Sean Kilpatrick will continue to cover most of the minutes at shooting guard, and Foye isn't a certain bet to eat into their minutes once he's cleared to play again.
Foye (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's matchup with the Pistons.
Foye has yet to make his season debut and it appears his absence will extend to five games while he remains bothered by the right hamstring strain. Bojan Bogdanovic has opened the season as the Nets' starting shooting guard and has generally performed well, while Sean Kilpatrick has thrived as his main backup on the second unit, so Foye could have to settle for a limited role off the bench when he eventually returns.
Foye (hamstring) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Bulls, Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders reports.
Foye is still dealing with a right hamstring strain, so he'll be sidelined for a fourth straight game. Bojan Bogdanovic has taken over as the Nets' starting shooting guard to begin the season and has averaged 17.0 points per game, so he could end up sticking in that role once Foye is cleared to make his season debut. Foye should be viewed as day-to-day heading into Wednesday's tilt with the Pistons.
Foye (hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's tilt with the Bucks, Tom Lorenzo of Nets Daily reports.
Foye's season debut will have to wait, as he is still dealing with a nagging hamstring issue. Boban Bogdanavic figures to continue filling in at shooting guard in Foye's absence. He has yet to return to practice, so a specific return date is up in the air, but his next opportunity will be Monday against the Bulls.
Foye (hamstring) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Pacers, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
The Nets are still regarding Foye's injury as a day-to-day concern, but his season debut will have to wait nonetheless while he sits out a second straight contest. Since he has yet to return to practice, it seems doubtful that Foye will be cleared to play in the second half of the Nets' back-to-back set Saturday against the Bucks. Look for Bojan Bogdanavic, who scored a team-high 21 points in Wednesday's loss to the Celtics, to continue starting at shooting guard, though he could surrender those duties once Foye is cleared to play.
Foye has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Celtics with a right hamstring strain.
Foye reportedly strained the hamstring in practice and the ailment is believed to be minor. Foye's next opportunity to play will be Friday against the Pacers, and Bojan Bogdanovic would be in line to start at shooting guard in Foye's place for as long as he is out. Sean Kilpatrick could also get additional minutes in Foye's absence.
Foye will start at shooting guard for Thursday's preseason matchup with the Celtics, Mike Mazzeo of ESPN.com reports.
Foye was held out of Tuesday's outing versus the Heat in order to get an additional day off for rest, but he'll be back in the lineup Thursday and is listed as a starter. Bojan Bogdanovic is currently the favorite to open the season as the team's starting shooting guard, but considering Foye continues to work with the starting unit, the competition between the two could be closer than initially believed.
Foye was held out of Tuesday's 121-100 preseason loss to the Heat for rest purposes, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Foye had started the Nets' first two preseason games, accruing a total of 13 points on 3-of-12 shooting across 39 minutes. It's believed that he was just a placeholder in the starting five for Bojan Bogdanovic, who is expected to hold down a role on the top unit when the regular season begins. Foye's ability to play both guard spots and knock down three-point shots should allow him to hold down a spot in coach Kenny Atkinson's rotation, but it's unlikely he'll see enough minutes off the bench to generate meaningful fantasy value.
Foye contributed nine points (2-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four rebounds and one steal across 21 minutes in Saturday's 116-98 preseason loss to the Knicks.
Foye made his second straight start at shooting guard, perhaps indicating that coach Kenny Atkinson might view him as a candidate for those duties when the regular season rolls around. Even if that ends up being the case, it's more likely than not that Bojan Bogdanovic, who averaged 15.1 points per game after the All-Star break last season, will see the bulk of the minutes at shooting guard over Foye.
