Timberwolves' Shabazz Napier: Scores 14 points in Thursday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier amassed 14 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, two steals, and one assist in 19 minutes during Thursday's 118-96 loss to the Bucks.

Napier has proven he can fill up the stat sheet in fairly limited minutes. However, he does have somewhat limited upside unless Jeff Teague has another injury-plagued campaign like last year.

Timberwolves' Shabazz Napier: Efficient in team debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier compiled seven points (3-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt), seven assists and three rebounds across 14 minutes during the Timberwolves' 111-106 preseason loss to the Suns on Tuesday.

Napier made good use of his modest time on the court in the preseason opener, offering a spark off the bench with a team-high assist total. The veteran point guard will serve as Jeff Teague's primary backup to open the season, a role that could yield a solid amount of minutes, especially if Teague proves to be similarly injury-prone to a 2018-19 campaign when he played a career-low 42 games.

Timberwolves' Shabazz Napier: Headed to Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Timberwolves agreed Monday to acquire Napier as part of a three-team deal involving the Warriors and Nets, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

The Warriors initially picked up Napier and Treveon Graham on Sunday as supplementary pieces in the sign-and-trade deal that sent D'Angelo Russell from Brooklyn to Golden State. Russell was the Warriors' only target in the deal, so it's not too surprising that Napier and Graham will be re-routed elsewhere as Golden State looks to free up more cap space. Napier, who has one year left on his contract, may not be long for the Minnesota roster either, but he'll have a better chance of finding minutes with the Timberwolves than he would with the Warriors.

Warriors' Shabazz Napier: Joins Warriors in three-player package
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Warriors acquired Napier and Treveon Graham from the Nets on Sunday as part of the sign-and-trade deal that sent D'Angelo Russell to Golden State, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Brooklyn will get back a future protected first-round pick in the deal, which is expected to be officially announced July 6, when the NBA's signing moratorium ends. The inclusion of Napier and Graham in the deal is likely just a matter of creating salary-cap flexibility for both sides, as the Warriors will bring in Russell on a four-year, $117 million max deal while the Nets came to terms earlier Sunday with Kevin Durant on a four-year, $164 million pact. If he sticks around with Golden State for the start of the upcoming season, Napier isn't a lock to be included in coach Steve Kerr's regular rotation.

Nets' Shabazz Napier: Posts double-double in Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier finished with 11 points (3-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, 10 assists and a steal over 16 minutes Tuesday against Philadelphia.

Napier was efficient shooting the basketball and dished out 10 helpers, but his postseason will come to an end following a 122-100 loss in Game 5. The 27-year-old point guard averaged eight points along with 3.7 assists in three playoff contests.

Nets' Shabazz Napier: Pours in 20 points off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier generated 20 points (7-17 FG, 6-13 3Pt), five rebounds and five assists in 29 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Heat.

Napier returned after a five-game absence to top 20 points for the 5th time this season. Given that the game was well in hand early on, Napier saw more minutes that usual and was able to translate the heightened playing time into one of his better performances of his season. Napier figures to see limited minutes in the playoffs as he slots in behind D'Angelo Russell and Shabazz Napier on the depth chart.

Nets' Shabazz Napier: Off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier (illness) is off the injury report for Friday's game against the Lakers.

Napier hasn't played over the past four games, but he'll be available Friday. That said, it's possible he racks up a DNP-CD.

March 21, 2019 12:12 PM
Nets' Shabazz Napier: Expects to be back Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier (illness) indicated that he expects to play Friday against the Lakers, the New York Post reports.

Napier was held out of Tuesday's game due to an illness, but he made the trip to Los Angeles with the team and should be an option off the bench, though he's fallen out of the regular rotation of late.

March 19, 2019 07:24 PM
Nets' Shabazz Napier: Out with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier is out for Tuesday's contest against the Kings due to an illness, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

Napier has seen his role reduced lately due to the presence of Spencer Dinwiddie, so this absence doesn't mean much for the Nets' rotation. His next chance to play arrives Friday against the Lakers.

March 17, 2019 03:44 PM
Nets' Shabazz Napier: Absent from Sunday's injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier (hamstring) was not listed on the injury report prior to Sundya's game against the Clippers, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

Napier missed the past two games with a hamstring injury, however he no longer appears on the injury report and is set to return. He'll return to his usual role of reserve guard.

Nets' Shabazz Napier: Out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier (hamstring) is out Saturday against the Jazz, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

Despite being listed as probable, Napier will be held out of Saturday's contest. His next chance to play arrives Sunday against the Clippers.

March 15, 2019 03:52 PM
Nets' Shabazz Napier: Probable Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier (hamstring) is probable for Saturday's matchup against the Jazz, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

A hamstring injury prevented Napier from playing in Wednesday's loss to the Thunder, but he should be good to go for Saturday. That said, he's only seen single-digit minutes in his past three appearances.

Nets' Shabazz Napier: Out Wednesday vs. OKC
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier is out for Wednesday's matchup against the Thunder due to a hamstring injury, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

There's nothing indicating Napier is dealing with a serious issue, but he'll sit out Wednesday's matchup. His next chance to play arrives Saturday against the Jazz. That said, his role has been reduced significantly since the return of Spencer Dinwiddie.

Nets' Shabazz Napier: Limited role in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier (personal) logged five minutes in Monday's 103-75 win over the Pistons, contributing zero points and two rebounds.

Even with the game turning into a blowout, Napier handled only a minor role off the bench in a return from a one-game absence due to the personal matter. Now that Spencer Dinwiddie is back in action after missing all of February with a thumb injury, Napier isn't a lock to be included in the Nets' crowded rotation in every game.

March 11, 2019 05:56 PM
Nets' Shabazz Napier: Off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier (personal) is off the team's injury report and will be available for Monday's game against Detroit.

Napier has missed three of the last four contests for the Nets, but he'll be available off the bench Monday night. He's averaging 8.0 points, 1.1 rebounds and 3.0 assists over his previous seven contests.

March 9, 2019 05:44 PM
Nets' Shabazz Napier: Expected back Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier (personal) is expected back for Monday's game against the Pistons, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

Napier is out for Saturday's game against the Hawks, but it'll likely only be a one-game absence for the guard. An official confirmation may arrive closer to game day.

March 8, 2019 04:28 PM
Nets' Shabazz Napier: Out for personal reasons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier won't play Saturday against the Hawks due to personal reasons.

Napier's role has taken a dive since the return of Spencer Dinwiddie, meaning Napier's absence Saturday won't be a major blow to the team. It's unclear if the guard will return for Monday's tilt against the Pistons.

Nets' Shabazz Napier: Plays four minutes in Friday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier saw four minutes in Friday's 123-112 loss to the Hornets.

Napier didn't attempt a single field goal and finished with one turnover across four minutes of action. The return of Spencer Dinwiddie (thumb), who had missed the last 14 games, seems to be the kiss of death to Napier's fantasy value, as he could be used sparingly going forward.

Nets' Shabazz Napier: Leads bench in scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier recorded 22 points (7-14 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 7-7 FT), an assist and a steal over 23 minutes Wednesday against the Wizards.

Napier struggled shooting the ball from beyond the arc, but he still managed to finish with 22 points, his best scoring night of February. The 27-year-old point guard has shown he's capable of putting up big games off the bench, although his consistency is lacking overall.

February 9, 2019 12:52 AM
Nets' Shabazz Napier: Plays 12 minutes in Friday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Napier had zero points (0-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt), one rebound, and one assist in 12 minutes during Friday's 125-106 loss to the Bulls.

Napier was a total non-factor in this one, with each of the other 10 Nets who saw the floor earning more minutes. That list of players includes Caris LeVert (foot), who played 15 minutes in his return to the lineup following a 42-game absence. Napier had been tearing it up recently after being used sparingly over the first few months of 2018-19, but the return of LeVert and the looming return of Spencer Dinwiddie (thumb) will likely limit Napier's fantasy appeal heading into the final third of the regular season.
