LeVert totaled eight points (3-5 FG, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal across 21 minutes in Saturday's 114-106 loss to the Jazz.
LeVert saw Allen Crabbe draw another start at two-guard, but he actually outpaced the latter on the scoreboard. Although the 2016 first-round pick has provided solid production across the stat sheet this season, head coach Kenny Atkinson appears intent on rotating he and Crabbe out of the starting lineup for the time being. LeVert is still seeing solid minutes irrespective of his spot on the depth chart, so he retains fantasy value in all formats.
LeVert will shift to a bench role for Monday's game against the Suns, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
LeVert has been outplayed by Allen Crabbe in recent games, so Crabbe earns the promotion to the top unit Monday, with LeVert headed to a bench role. While LeVert could see a few less minutes as a reserve, it shouldn't cost him too much playing time considering the Nets are still without Jeremy Lin (knee) for the season. Look for LeVert to be the first wing off the bench behind Crabbe and DeMarre Carroll.
LeVert collected 15 points (4-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), eight rebounds, and five assists in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 125-121 loss to the Magic.
LeVert has responded positively to his recent promotion into the starting five, posting well-rounded stat-lines in consecutive games. Jeremy Lin (knee) being out for the season opens the door for LeVert and others to see an expanded role, and thus far it's the versatile sophomore who is making the most of this opportunity.
LeVert will start at shooting guard for Sunday's game against the Hawks, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
With Jeremy Lin going down for the rest of the season with a knee injury, the Nets are experiment with a couple of different options in the backcourt. Allen Crabbe drew the start in Friday's game, but will head back to the bench in an effort to balance his workload after a preseason ankle injury. That allows LeVert to pick up the start Sunday, which means he'll likely be in line for a larger workload. Still, the two will likely share the extra workload for now and it wouldn't be surprising if they were alternated between the bench and starting five at least a few more times to figure out which fit makes more sense.
After going through a full practice Saturday, LeVert was expected to return for Sunday's contest. The former Michigan standout is coming off an impressive 2016-17 campaign, but he may see a limited role this coming season due to the offseason acquisitions of both Allen Crabbe and DeMarre Carroll. Expect LeVert to be eased back into the team's rotation in his return from the ankle injury.
