Nets' Jared Dudley: Out again Friday
Dudley (hamstring) was ruled out for Friday's game against the Magic, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
This will be Dudley's third straight absence with a left hamstring injury, and he remains without a timetable for a return. He'll continue to be evaluated on a game-by-game basis until the Nets can provide a more concrete update on his health.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: Limited in return
Hollis-Jefferson (groin) played only seven minutes Wednesday in the Nets' 145-142 overtime victory over the Rockets, finishing with three points (1-3 FG, 1-1 FT) and four rebounds.
As was reported prior to the contest, Hollis-Jefferson was on a strict minutes limit in his return from a seven-game absence due to the strained groin. He'll likely have his playing time monitored carefully for the next couple of games, so the forward probably won't warrant an immediate activation for fantasy managers who had been stashing him while he was dealing with the injury. Once back to full strength, Hollis-Jefferson should step back into a starting role at power forward, which may hurt the respective values of DeMarre Carroll, Rodions Kurucs and Treveon Graham to some extent....

Nets' Treveon Graham: Scores 21 points in shootout
Graham registered 21 points (7-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT) and five rebounds across 32 minutes Wednesday against the Rockets.
Graham posted his most impressive outing of the season, shooting with efficiency in a 145-142 overtime victory in Houston. Although Wednesday's scoring output likely isn't maintainable for the 25-year-old guard, he could see a few more starts with Jared Dudley still on the shelf with a lingering hamstring injury. In Graham's three starts this year, he's averaging 8.7 points and 3.7 rebounds in 29.3 minutes per contest.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Joe Harris: Posts strong final line
Harris totaled 17 points (6-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds and seven assists across 43 minutes Wednesday against Houston.
Harris put together his best scoring output since Jan. 4, knocking home 50.0 percent of his shots from both the field and from beyond the arc. He was a key contributor in a 145-142 victory at home. The 27-year-old forward continues to put up solid numbers this season, averaging 13.4 points, 4.9 boards and 3.1 assists to start January (seven games).... See More ... See Less
Nets' DeMarre Carroll: Impressive showing off bench
Carroll scored 22 points (6-13 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 6-7 FT) and recorded five rebounds along with an assist across 35 minutes Wednesday against Houston.
Carroll put together his best performance of the season, scoring 22 points on 46.3 percent shooting from the field and 66.7 percent from beyond the arc. The 6-8 Missouri product is averaging 15.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists over his previous seven contests despite remaining in a bench role.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Spencer Dinwiddie: Scores 33 in win
Dinwiddie scored 33 points (13-22 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and added 10 assists and two rebounds across 32 minutes in Wednesday's 145-142 overtime win over Houston.
Dinwiddie hit a huge, game-tying three to send the game to overtime and scored seven of the Nets' 14 points in the extra period. The performance was a much-needed one for Dinwiddie, whose fantasy value had been trending down with averages of 10.9 points, 3.8 assists and 2.2 rebounds in 25.4 minutes per game over the previous nine contests. It's worth noting, however, that D'Angelo Russell had a rare off night after a string of excellent outings, so Dinwiddie could see his usage take a hit if Russell is able to bounce back quickly....

Nets' Jarrett Allen: Big double-double in win
Allen had 20 points (10-19 FG, 0-3 3PT, 0-1 FT), 24 rebounds, three blocks and two assists across a season-high 43 minutes Wednesday in the Nets' 145-142 overtime victory over the Rockets.
The high minutes total certainly aided Allen, but even without the extra period, the second-year center would have finished with his best statistical outing of the season. He's really stepped up his contributions on the defensive end over the last three games, recording at least 12 rebounds and two rejections in each of those contests.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: On minutes limit Wednesday
Hollis-Jefferson is on an undisclosed minutes limit Wednesday, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.
Hollis-Jefferson will be on a minutes limit Wednesday although coach Kenny Atkinson wouldn't disclose the exact amount he'll be able to play. This was an expected move as Hollis-Jefferson has missed the past seven games with a strained groin. As long as the minutes limit lasts, Demarre Carroll should continue to see extra run....

Nets' Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: On undisclosed minutes limit
Hollis-Jefferson (groin) will be on an undisclosed minutes limit Wednesday against the Rockets, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Hollis-Jefferson will take the court for the first time since Dec. 29. However, coach Kenny Atkinson will opt to bring the forward along slowly. As a result, Hollis-Jefferson is a risky DFS option.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Shabazz Napier: Available Wednesday
Napier (hamstring) will be available for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.
Napier was held out of Monday's game with a minor hamstring issue, but he'll be back in action Wednesday and will look to pick up where he left off. Over his last seven games, Napier is averaging 15.4 points, 4.6 assists and 3.1 rebounds in 27.0 minutes per contest.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: Available Wednesday
Hollis-Jefferson (groin) is listed as available for Wednesday's tilt with the Rockets, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
As expected, Hollis-Jefferson has been made available to play Wednesday. It will mark his first appearance since he strained his groin on December 29th. Expect the Nets to closely monitor Hollis-Jefferson's playing time so as to not aggravate the issue.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Caris LeVert: Gets up shots at shootaround
LeVert (foot) has progressed to light shooting, Anthony Puccio of Nets Daily reports.
Video emerged Wednesday of LeVert getting shots up at a morning shootaround, so things appear to be trending positively in the guard's recovery. LeVert has been working back from a dislocated right foot since mid-November, with an initial return period set for early February. There's been nothing to indicate that timetable has changed....

Nets' Jared Dudley: Remains out Wednesday
Dudley (hamstring) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Rockets, Ben Nadeau of Basketball Insiders reports.
Dudley is set to miss a third straight game as he continues to nurse a left hamstring injury that he picked up last week. The Nets haven't provided any timetable for Dudley's return, so the veteran should be tentatively considered questionable for Friday's game against the Magic.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Shabazz Napier: Game-time decision Wednesday
Napier (hamstring) is questionable for Wednesday's game against Houston, Ben Nadeau of Basketball Insiders reports.
Napier missed Monday's contest after a hamstring injury flared up, and his status for Brooklyn's upcoming matchup remains unclear. He'll likely test the injury during morning shootaround to gain a better idea of whether he'll be ready to go in Houston.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: Still on track for Wednesday return
Hollis-Jefferson (groin) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Rockets, Ben Nadeau of Basketball Insiders reports.
It was revealed earlier in the week that Hollis-Jefferson was targeting a Wednesday return, and he has a good chance to make that happen after being listed as probable on Brooklyn's injury report. He's missed seven straight contests due to a groin strain, although that streak should come to an end in Houston. Expect the Nets to monitor Hollis-Jefferson's minutes closely in an effort to prevent further issue.... See More ... See Less
Nets' DeMarre Carroll: Double-doubles in win
Carroll finished with 10 points (2-15 FG, 1-9 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 14 rebounds, two assists and a block in 32 minutes Monday against Boston.
Carroll posted his first double-double of the season although it was partially offset due to a horrendous shooting night for the veteran forward. Over his past two games, he's made just 4-of-24 shots from the field and 3-of-14 threes. If he's unable to turn it around soon, Carroll's worth dropping as he generally fails to produce much outside of scoring.... See More ... See Less
