Nets' DeMarre Carroll: Rough game in loss
Carroll produced eight points (2-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds and an assist in 27 minutes Wednesday against the Heat.
Carroll has struggled so far this year after returning from an ankle injury that sidelined him for the first 11 games of the season. The veteran forward had a career year in 2017-18, averaging 13.5 points 6.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.0 threes per game. Carroll is still in the process of getting up to speed -- evidenced by his steadily increasing minute load -- but has a fantastic opportunity to cultivate a larger role with Caris LeVert (foot) out indefinitely. If Carroll is able to return to the form he had last year, he would be worth a look in standard formats.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Shabazz Napier: Plays season-high 25 minutes
Napier contributed 13 points (5-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists and two steals across 25 minutes during Wednesday's defeat to the Heat.
The veteran guard played a season-high 25 minutes while tallying his third-best point total of the season. With Caris LeVert out indefinitely, Napier may be called on for more playmaking responsibilities. That said, Wednesday's performance was more likely due to the Heat blowing out the Nets early, and until Napier is able to provide more consistent value, he isn't a viable option in standard formats....

Nets' Spencer Dinwiddie: Paces team with 18 points
Dinwiddie totaled 18 points (6-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT), five assists, three rebounds and a steal in 29 minutes Wednesday against the Heat.
Dinwiddie outplayed starter De'Angelo Russell by six minutes but had roughly the same statistical output albeit more efficiently. The veteran guard has had a nice season leading the Nets' second unit, contributing 13.9 points, 4.1 assists, 2.4 rebounds and 2.0 threes per game on 47.3 percent from the field, 81.8 percent from the line and 39.4 recent from three on the year. Dinwiddie is scoring at a career-best clip, and although he's passing out 2.0 fewer assists per game this year, he may still be worth a look in standard leagues due to his ability to generate modest scoring and distributional numbers on excellent efficiency....

Nets' D'Angelo Russell: Struggles with shot Wednesday
Russell scored 12 points (6-18 FG, 0-3 3Pt) and accrued five assists, three rebounds and a steal in 23 minutes Wednesday against the Heat.
After scoring 31 points on Monday, Russell was unable to get his shot going against the Heat. The fourth-year point guard is having a modest season, scoring at a career-best clip and shooting over forty percent from three. That said, Russell isn't overly impressive in any one category, contributing 16.8 points, 5.1 assists, 3.6 rebounds, 2.6 threes and 1.1 steals per game on the year. With Caris LeVert out for the foreseeable future, Russell may take on more playmaking responsibilities, although a decrease in efficiency would likely happen in conjunction.... See More ... See Less
