Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurucs will start Friday's game against the Kings, Greg Logan of Newsday reports.

This is Kurucs' second start of bubble play. In his five stars this season, he's averaging 9.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 21.6 minutes.

Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Starting vs. Milwaukee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurucs will get the start at center Tuesday against Milwaukee, Anthony Puccio of Nets Daily reports.

With a number of regulars, including Jarrett Allen, sitting out, the Nets will be severely undermanned Tuesday. Kurucs will move into the lineup alongside Lance Thomas in the frontcourt, while Donta Hall will come off the bench. In 17 minutes of action against Washington on Sunday, Kurucs posted two points, four assists and three rebounds.

Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Playing in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurucs (hip) is available for Friday's restart opener against the Magic, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

As expected, Kurucs has recovered enough from his bruised left hip to take the floor. With so many players not joining the Nets in Orlando, Kurucs should see an expanded role. In the six games this season in which he's garnered at least 20 minutes, he's averaged 8.8 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.0 steals.

Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Probable for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurucs is probable for Friday's game against the Magic due to a left hip contusion, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

It's unclear whether Kurucs suffered the injury during the team's final scrimmage or during practice. Either way, he'll still likely play in the opener. With so many players not joining the Nets in Orlando, Kurucs should see an expanded role. In the six games this season in which he's garnered at least 20 minutes, he's averaged 8.8 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.0 steals.

Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Scores 17 as substitute
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurucs notched 17 points (5-7 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 25 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 124-119 scrimmage win over the Spurs.

Kurucs registered 46 starts during his rookie season in 2018-19, and he is widely expected to feature as the team's starting power forward once the Nets resume their season July 31 against the Magic. This performance should undoubtedly boost his confidence after posting averages of just 4.2 points and 2.5 rebounds in 12.8 minutes per game across 39 appearances in 2019-20.

Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Could take on starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurucs is expected to step in as the Nets' starting power forward when the team resumes its season July 31 versus the Magic, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

The Nets have ruled out seven players for the season as the team trains in Orlando in anticipation of the NBA's restart at the Walt Disney World complex, and the personnel losses loom especially large in the frontcourt. Brooklyn will be without four potential options at power forward in Kevin Durant (Achilles), Taurean Prince (illness), Wilson Chandler (personal) and Nicolas Claxton (shoulder), while the recently signed Michael Beasley will have to serve a five-game suspension before he's eligible to play. All of those missing players leave Kurucs in a good position to handle a starting role moving forward, and head coach Jacque Vaughn confirmed that the 22-year-old worked on the top unit at Sunday's practice, per Greg Logan of Newsday. Kurucs has moved in and out of the rotation throughout his second NBA season, but he acquitted himself well in 46 starts as a rookie in 2018-19, averaging 9.0 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.1 triples and 1.0 assist in 23.0 minutes per game in those contests.

Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Left out of rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurucs (coach's decision) didn't see the floor during Wednesday's 101-91 win over the Raptors.

Kurucs has played in just two games here in February, and while he earned 27 minutes in his most recent appearance, he combined for five minutes in the two tilts before that. As such, the 22-year-old sophomore can be avoided in most fantasy formats.

Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Scores 12 points in 21 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurucs notched 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 21 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 110-97 loss at the Knicks.

This was just Kurucs' second double-digit scoring game of the season; for the most part, he's been unable to produce at a high level coming off the Nets' bench. With Kurucs rarely exceeding 25 minutes per game and showing no sign of forcing coach Kenny Atkinson to give him more time on the court, he has very little upside in most formats.

Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurucs is not on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against Philadelphia.

Kurucs departed Saturday's loss to Milwaukee with an apparent injury, but it doesn't look like he's dealing with anything of concern.

Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Heads to locker room
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurucs went to the locker room during Saturday's game against the Bucks, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

It's not clear what type of injury Kurucs suffered. He should be considered questionable to return.

Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurucs will start Saturday against the Bucks, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

With Joe Harris (back) sidelined, Kurucs will enter the starting five. In three previous starts this season, he's averaged 10.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.0 steal in 20.0 minutes.

Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Accomplishes season high in points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurucs accrued 19 points (7-9 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and a steal across 23 minutes in Friday's 117-113 win over the Heat.

Only three minutes were needed for the 21-year-old to tie his season high in points (nine) before he scored 10 more the rest of the way. The sophomore forward got a second straight start with teammate Garrett Temple out (knee) and delivered his career-best shooting performance (78 percent under a minimum nine shots). Kurucs has mostly played this year in the G League, so fantasy owners shouldn't be too hasty, but continuing performances like these may warrant a regular NBA roster spot for him.

Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Back in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurucs is starting Tuesday's game against Oklahoma City, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

Kurucs has come off the bench in his team's last two contests, but he'll rejoin the starting five Tuesday night, replacing Garrett Temple. He finished with eight points, three boards and three times in his last start Thursday against Dallas.

Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Returning to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurucs will come off the bench Saturday against the Raptors, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

With Garrett Temple and Caris LeVert both healthy, Kurucs will resume his usual role off the bench after drawing a spot start Thursday. In his previous 17 appearances off the bench, he's averaged 2.8 points and 2.3 rebounds in 10.5 minutes.

Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Scores eight points in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurucs managed eight points (3-10 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 18 minutes during Thursday's 123-111 loss to Dallas.

Kurucs was a member of the opening five for the first time this season but only played 18 minutes. It has been somewhat of a fall from grace for Kurucs who was coming off a decent season in 2018-19. Caris LeVert (thumb) appears as though he could return this weekend and so Kurucs' limited value is likely to regress even further.

Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Joins starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurucs is starting Thursday's game against Dallas, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

Kurucs will draw his first start of the season with Garrett Temple (knee) sidelined. The former second-round pick out of Latvia has struggled to see consistent playing time this year, averaging 10.6 minutes and 2.8 points over 17 games.

Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Plays 19 minutes in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurucs ended with eight points (2-4 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds in 19 minutes during Thursday's 94-82 loss to New York.

Kurucs took advantage of garbage time, notching 19 minutes in the embarrassing loss. It was the most court time he has seen since late October, basically summing up what has been a disappointing season. Kurucs is not even an every night part of the rotation and only those in deeper formats need to pay attention to his movements.

Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Well-rounded line Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurucs supplied 14 points (6-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-4 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and a steal in 31 minutes during Monday's loss to the 905.

It was a good bounce-back game for Kurucs, who'd struggled in his past two appearances for Long Island. Though he was brought up to the NBA briefly last week, it appears that the majority of Kurucs' opportunities will come in the G League this season.

Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Back to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nets assigned Kurucs to the G League's Long Island Nets on Monday, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

After a promising rookie season, Kurucs has seemingly fallen out of favor in 2019-20, appearing in just 10 of Brooklyn's 23 games to date and averaging just 9.8 minutes. He'll head to the G League in order to pick up some much-needed playing time.

December 2, 2019 12:44 PM
Nets' Rodions Kurucs: Solid all-around line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurucs supplied 16 points (6-12 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds four assists, three steals and a block in 32 minutes during Sunday's loss to Maine.

The Latvian forward had a second-straight solid outing, managing to contribute in every category while posting a plus-seven net rating. The second-year pro's struggled to match his impressive numbers from his rookie year but finally appears to be getting up to speed after a rough first month. He has a good chance to rejoin Brooklyn relatively soon if he's able to maintain his strong play.
