Nets' Jarrett Allen: Questionable Wednesday
Allen (illness) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Heat, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Allen missed his first game of the season with an illness Monday, and his status for Wednesday is still up in the air. Allen's chances of playing Wednesday should become more clear based on his participation in shootaround, so look for an update on that in the morning.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Caris LeVert: Diagnosed with dislocated right foot
LeVert was diagnosed with a dislocated right foot and is expected to make a return this season, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
This is great news for LeVert considering how gruesome the injury initially looked, and the lack of surgery will make for a much faster rehab process for the shooting guard. It's still an unfortunate circumstance for LeVert, who was in the midst of having a breakout season with the Nets. The team will likely have an update on his timetable shortly, but for now, Allen Crabbe and DeMarre Carroll should both be in line for extended roles on the wing in LeVert's absence.... See More ...

Nets' Ed Davis: Pulls down another 14 rebounds Monday
Davis produced seven points (2-4 FG, 3-4 FT), 14 rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 21 minutes during Monday's 120-113 loss to Minnesota.
Davis continues to rebound the ball extremely well in limited playing time, adding another 14 in just 21 minutes Monday. Jarrett Allen (illness) missed this game which did allow Davis some additional run. Davis is more of a rebounds streamer but if Allen is forced to miss another game, Davis could be a nice DFS play.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Spencer Dinwiddie: Has 14 points Monday
Dinwiddie totaled 14 points (5-10 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, and one steal in 28 minutes during Monday's 120-113 loss to the Timberwolves.
Dinwiddie once again provided solid production off the bench Monday, delivering 14 points in 28 minutes. The stat line is far from spectacular but with Caris LeVert (leg) set to miss some time, Dinwiddie could find a way to additional playing time moving forward. No one player is going to pick up all the slack left by LeVert's injury, however, Dinwiddie could be one of a committee of players to benefit.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: Has nice line in start Monday
Hollis-Jefferson had 14 points (5-10 FG, 4-6 FT), six rebounds, five assists, three steals, and one block in 26 minutes during Monday's 120-113 loss to the Timberwolves.
Hollis-Jefferson moved into the starting lineup, replacing Jarrett Allen (illness) who was sitting this one out. Hollis-Jefferson was solid during his 26 minutes on the court, able to produce in a number of categories. The biggest takeaway here was the Caris LeVert (leg) suffered what appeared to be a serious leg injury and looks set to miss a lengthy amount of time. Hollis-Jefferson could remain in the starting lineup indefinitely if LeVert indeed misses time. If he was dropped in your league, it makes sense to grab him as a speculative add.... See More ...

Nets' D'Angelo Russell: Hits career-high nine triples Monday
Russell finished with 31 points (10-22 FG, 9-15 3Pt, 2-5 FT), six assists, two rebounds, and two steals in 32 minutes during Monday's 120-113 loss to Minnesota.
Russell went-off for 31 points Monday, draining a career-high nine triples in the process. Despite the impressive shooting, his performance was overshadowed by the injury to Caris LeVert. LeVert looks set to miss a lengthy period of time which is going to mean Russell should see an uptick in his usage moving forward. Just be prepared for an associated dip in his efficiency if the shot attempts increase.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Caris LeVert: Suffers gruesome injury
LeVert was forced to leave the court in a wheelchair after suffering what appears to be a significant ankle injury Monday against Minnesota, Kent Youngblood of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
LeVert went down in a heap and was unable to make it off the court without assistance. It's safe to assume he won't return to Monday's contest, and his availability for the remainder of the season is certainly a concern at this point. The team hasn't released any details regarding the injury just yet, but expect more information to surface after further evaluation. DeMarre Carroll and Allen Crabbe would likely see an uptick in playing time if LeVert is indeed sidelined for an extended period of time.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: Draws spot start Monday
Hollis-Jefferson will get the start at center Monday against the Timberwolves, Greg Logan of Newsday reports.
The Nets will elect to go with a smaller lineup after Jarrett Allen was ruled out due to illness. Hollis-Jefferson has been in a bench role so far this season, averaging 8.4 points along with 4.9 rebounds and 1.5 assists over 20.3 minutes per contest. He figures to revert back to the bench Wednesday, assuming Allen manages to return to the starting five.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Caris LeVert: Not on injury report
LeVert is not on the Nets' injury report in advance of Monday's game against the Timberwolves.
LeVert tweaked his knee during Saturday's loss to the Warriors, but he downplayed the issue afterward, and the fact that he never landed on the injury report indicates that it's nothing serious.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Jarrett Allen: Ruled out Monday
Allen (illness) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Timberwolves, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Allen is set to miss his first game all season due to an undisclosed illness. In his place, Ed Davis and Kenneth Faried are candidates to see increased run. Allen's next chance to play will come Wednesday against the Heat.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Jarrett Allen: Listed as questionable Monday
Allen is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Timberwolves due to an illness, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Specifics regarding the illness remain unclear, but look for Allen's status to clear up closer to game-time. This would be a tough blow for the Nets if Allen can't play, as the big man is averaging 11.4 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game this season. If Allen is ruled out, look for Ed Davis and Kenneth Faried to see some extra run.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Caris LeVert: Exits early with knee scare
LeVert exited midway through the third quarter of Saturday's 116-100 loss to the Warriors with a knee injury and didn't return, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports. "It feels OK," LeVert said of his knee after the game. "I just fell on it a little bit, but I'll be fine for the next game."
LeVert had been playing through a head cold coming into the day and finished with just four points (1-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT) and two rebounds across 21 minutes before departing. It sounds like LeVert's removal was mostly precautionary, as coach Kenny Atkinson confirmed after the contest that the young guard should be good to go for Monday's game in Minnesota. LeVert's early departure Saturday opened up more run off the bench for Shabazz Napier, who tallied 14 points (4-7 FG, 6-9 FT), one rebound, one assist and one steal in 20 minutes.... See More ...

Nets' Shabazz Napier: Plays 20 minutes off bench
Napier played 20 minutes off the bench in Saturday's loss to the Warriors.
Napier was a DNP-CD in the Nets' previous game Friday, and it sounds as though he'll be on the fringes of the rotation going forward now that DeMarre Carroll is back healthy. "I think it's tough to play more than 10," coach Kenny Atkinson said. "I don't say it's out of the realm of possibility. These are the tough decisions because Shabazz played well for us. It's just that we want to integrate DeMarre and figure out where he is and how he can help us. ... Is he going to play more at the wing? Is he going to play more at the four? It's to be determined."... See More ... See Less
Nets' Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: Marginal production Saturday
Hollis-Jefferson contributed just two points to go with three rebounds, one assist, and one block in 17 minutes during Saturday's 116-100 loss to the Warriors.
Hollis-Jefferson was non-existent Saturday, barely troubling the statisticians in his 17 minutes on the court. Since returning from injury he has yet to find any sort of rhythm on either end of the floor. The Nets have begun the season quite well and numerous other players have made advancements in their games. He remains a borderline hold in standard leagues but it is getting tough not to start looking elsewhere.... See More ... See Less
Nets' D'Angelo Russell: Limited production in loss Saturday
Russell had 12 points (5-16 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 22 minutes during Saturday's 116-100 loss to Golden State.
Russell got off to a hot start in this one but could not keep things going as the Warriors overpowered the plucky Nets. Russell continues to have some issues with his efficiency but on the whole, has had a solid start to his season. The biggest takeaway from the season so far is that he appears healthy and will hopefully be able to play in the majority of games for both the Nets and his owners.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Joe Harris: Scores team-high 24 points Saturday
Harris finished with 24 points (9-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two assists, one rebound, and one steal in 20 minutes during Saturday's 116-100 loss to Golden State.
Harris played just 20 minutes Saturday but managed to record a team-high 24 points on 9-of-12 shooting. If the game had been closer, Harris could have had a much nicer line but those with him on their roster should be thrilled with his production. Those who keep waiting for the drop off might need to accept the fact that he can be a good fantasy player. Despite a limited skillset, Harris warrants rostering in standard leagues at this stage....
