A broken wrist resulted in the third-year point guard playing in just 41 games last season. When Neto did take the floor, he was in a reserve point guard role behind Ricky Rubio, averaging 4.5 points and 1.8 assists in 12.1 minutes. Notably, he shot 19-of-47 (40.4 percent) from deep. All signs are pointing towards a similar role for the upcoming campaign, especially if Dante Exum remains with the team.
A concussion and fractured wrist limited Neto to just 41 games in his third season with the Jazz, which marked yet another disappointing campaign for the 26-year-old guard. Despite the limited showing, the Jazz are willing to give Neto a qualifying offer, meaning the team can match any offer he receives on the open free agent market starting July 1. Still, it wouldn't be surprising if the Jazz are ultimately able to bring him back on a very cheap contract and that would likely mean he'd be slated to battle Dante Exum for backup point guard minutes behind Ricky Rubio. Exum is also a restricted free agent.
Neto (coach's decision) did not see the floor in Sunday's 112-97 win over the Lakers.
Neto was deemed available to play after having missed the previous 12 games with a fractured wrist, but he ultimately failed to see the floor, even with Ricky Rubio (hamstring) sitting out the second half as a precautionary measure. Dante Exum has performed well in backup point guard duties in Neto's absence, but there's a good chance the latter sees some minutes over the final two games of the season if Rubio is held out in order to get fully healthy for the playoffs.
Neto (wrist) will be available for Sunday's game against the Lakers, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
Neto has been sidelined with a broken wrist over the past 12 games, but has healed well and will be able to take the court if needed Sunday. That said, while he's been out, Dante Exum has taken over reserve point guard duties, averaging a solid 8.7 points and 3.0 assists on 52.9 percent shooting across 15.6 minutes. So, it's not exactly clear what Neto's role will be moving forward.
Neto (wrist) will be reevaluated in another week, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
Neto has been out since mid-March and another week on the sidelines will officially rule him out for the rest of the regular season. That said, the Jazz are currently looking likely to make the playoffs, so there's a chance he rejoins the lineup at some point during that run. Whether he plays or not again this season, Neto likely won't be a viable fantasy option.
