Whitehead spent the week in Long Island while Brooklyn traveled to Atlanta and Mexico City. He'll now rejoin the team in Mexico City for Saturday's game against the Heat, but he is not expected to part of the rotation. Expect Whitehead to ultimately make a return to the G-League unless backcourt injuries call for him to be needed in Brooklyn.
Whitehead has made eight appearances with the Nets in the NBA this season. If he's recalled from the G-League this season, he'll likely continue to receive end-of-rotation minutes since he's buried on the depth chart.
Whitehead finished with 24 points (10-16 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one steal across 27 minutes in Monday's 117-103 loss to Houston.
Whitehead was next man up on Monday, getting the hot hand and finishing with a season-high 24 points on just 16 shot attempts. The Nets are ravaged by injuries, and predicting who gets minutes on a nightly basis is going to be difficult. Whitehead had not even seen to the floor over the last four games, so this is likely an anomaly. Until he can do this again, he can safely be left alone in most league formats.
Whitehead mustered eight points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT), two rebounds and one assist across 13 minutes in Saturday's 114-106 loss to the Jazz.
The 22-year-old saw action for only the third time this season and was efficient with his opportunity, putting up a quick six shots. Whitehead's role figures to be minimal as long as D'Angelo Russell and Spencer Dinwiddie remain healthy, but with the pair suffering from knee and hamstring injuries, respectively, he could be in for some extended run in coming games.
Whitehead was recalled from the G-League ahead of Sunday's game against the Nuggets.
Whitehead has shuttled back-and-forth between the G-League and NBA recently, but he will be called upon to rejoin the Nets for the time being. He doesn't figure to see enough run to be worthy of any fantasy consideration, though.
