Brown will come off the bench Saturday against the Magic, Anthony Puccio of NetsDaily.com reports.
James Harden is making his Nets debut, and he's starting at point guard with Joe Harris at shooting guard, meaning coach Steve Nash is bringing Brown off the bench. Brown has still seen 20-plus minutes regularly as of late, so it's possible he offers some fantasy production.
Brown went for 15 points (6-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 14 rebounds and two assists across 30 minutes in Wednesday's 116-109 win over the Knicks.
Brown has now produced 15-plus points in two consecutive games for the first time this season. He also contributed a career-high 14 rebounds and is averaging 10 boards over his last two outings. However, with the addition of James Harden on Wednesday, Brown's recent production may be short-lived.
Brown scored 16 points (8-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt) to go with six rebounds, three assists and three blocks across 26 minutes in a 122-116 win over Denver on Tuesday.
Brown earned his fourth start of the season with Kyrie Irving (personal) missing more time. The guard scored 10 points in the second half on a 5-of-6 shooting performance from the field as the Nets fought back for the win. Brown has averaged just 2.4 points during his 11.7 minutes per game so far this season, but a performance like this can go a long way for coach Steve Nash to utilize the 24-year-old more often as Brooklyn continues to experiment with starting lineups.
Brown will start Tuesday's game against the Nuggets, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.
The 24-year-old played only five minutes off the bench Sunday against the Thunder, but he'll rejoin the starting five Tuesday with Kyrie Irving (personal) still sidelined. Brown averaged 4.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 21.3 minutes in his three previous starts this season.
Brown is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's matchup against Utah.
The Nets are shaking up their starting lineup with Kevin Durant (COVID-19) out. Brown is currently posting 1.3 points in 4.3 minutes per game this year.
Brown remained fixed to the bench during Wednesday's 145-141 victory over Atlanta.
Brown's rapid decline continues after what had been a mini-breakout last season. After being traded to the Nets in the offseason, Brown has barely made a whimper for his new team, serving as a benchwarmer on most nights. Barring any major injuries, it is highly unlikely Brown moves the fantasy needle this season, even in deeper formats.
The Pistons traded Brown to the Nets on Monday in exchange for forward Dzanan Musa and a 2021 second-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
A 2018 second-round pick, Brown appeared in 132 games (99 starts) and averaged 6.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 23.4 minutes per game across his two seasons with Detroit. Though he received ample run for a non-contending Pistons squad in 2019-20, Brown's playing time will likely take a hit while he moves on to a Brooklyn team that projects to be one of the Eastern Conference's better outfits in 2020-21 with a healthy Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. As a defensive-minded player capable of playing point guard and on the wing, Brown could end up being a replacement for Garrett Temple, assuming the Nets elect not to exercise his $5.01 million team option for the upcoming season.
Brown underwent surgery in late April to repair a ligament in his right thumb but notes that he'd be ready to play if the NBA season resumes, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.
It's not clear when Brown suffered the injury, but it sounds like he's recovered well. This season, he's averaged 8.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.1 steals across 28.2 minutes.
Brown (ankle) was ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Sixers, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
Brown was considered questionable with a right ankle sprain but won't be available Wednesday. Jordan McRae and Khyri Thomas could see increased run in his absence.
Brown is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Sixers with a right ankle sprain.
The 23-year-old presumably picked up the injury during Sunday's spot start against the Knicks, as he had 16 points (7-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt), six assists and four rebounds over 37 minutes. Derrick Rose (ankle) remains sidelined, so Brown should continue to see plenty of opportunities, if available. Brandon Knight and Jordan McRae are otherwise in line to see increased run.
Brown tallied 16 points (7-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt), six assists and four rebounds across 37 minutes in Sunday's 96-84 loss to the Knicks.
With Derrick Rose (ankle) sidelined for at least a month, opportunities are going to open up throughout Detroit's backcourt. Although Brandon Knight got the first crack at replacing Rose at the point, it's Brown who played the floor general Sunday while Knight sat with a knee injury. Brown possesses a versatile skill set that makes him valuable as a placeholder at several positions, and it's likely that we'll see a lot of the Miami product as the season draws to a close.
Brown will start Sunday's game against the Knicks, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports.
With Brandon Knight (knee) limited, the Pistons will bring Brown off the bench and move him into the starting five. Brown made his return from an injury of his own Saturday night against Utah and finished with five points, five rebounds and seven assists.
Brown (knee) produced five points (2-6 FG, 1-1 FT), seven assists and five rebounds in 25 minutes off the bench Saturday in the Pistons' 111-105 loss to the Jazz.
Brown rejoined the Pistons' rotation after missing the previous four contests with a left knee contusion. He handled what looked to be a relatively normal minutes load in his return, turning in a well-rounded stat line in the process. The Pistons appear set to proceed with Brown as their top wing off the bench moving forward, though he could get some more on-ball work in Sunday's game against the Knicks. Starting point guard Brandon Knight (hamstring) is listed as questionable for the second half of the back-to-back set.
Brown (knee) is not on the injury report ahead of Saturday's action against the Jazz.
A bruised left knee has kept Brown on the shelf across the past four games, but he'll make his return Saturday. In February, he averaged 10.1 points, 7.7 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.0 steal in 34.1 minutes.
Coach Dwane Casey said Brown (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
Casey added that he thought Brown, who has missed the past four games with a left knee contusion, was going to play Wednesday, so all signs point to the 23-year-old returning Saturday against Utah. He should be considered questionable for now, with an update regarding his status likely coming closer to game time.
Brown (knee) is out for Wednesday's game against the Thunder, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.
As expected, Brown will miss a fourth straight game due to a left knee contusion. Newly signed Jordan McRae will be available to help fill some of the minutes.
