Nets' Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: Cleared to play Saturday
Hollis-Jefferson (ankle) will play Saturday against the Clippers.
Hollis-Jefferson missed Friday's game against the Wizards, but needed just a one-game absence to get healthy. Over his past two appearances, he's averaged 14.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.0 block in 25.0 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: Questionable Saturday
Hollis-Jefferson (ankle) is considered questionable for Saturday's contest against the Clippers.
Hollis-Jefferson missed Friday's victory over the Wizards, and now his status for Saturday is in jeopardy. Should he sit out, it would mark his fifth missed game of the year. Jared Dudley and DeMarre Carroll would figure to see slightly expanded roles if that happens. Look for an update on his status closer to tip-off.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Spencer Dinwiddie: Manages team-high 25 points Friday
Dinwiddie totaled 25 points (8-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 6-9 FT), eight assists, four rebounds, and three steals in 31 minutes during Friday's 115-104 victory over the Wizards.
Dinwiddie was excellent Friday, helping the Nets to an 11 point victory over the struggling Wizards. Dinwiddie continues to come off the bench but matched Jarrett Allen with a team-high 31 minutes. He paced the team in scoring, assists, and steals and appears to have been the major beneficiary of the Caris LeVert (ankle) injury. Despite the sixth-man role, Dinwiddie needs to rostered in all leagues.... See More ... See Less
Nets' D'Angelo Russell: Strong shooting effort Friday
Russell had 23 points (8-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-8 FT), six assists, three rebounds, and two steals in 29 minutes during Friday's 115-104 victory over Washington.
Russell bounced back after struggling against the Heat on Wednesday, leaving Washington with 23 points on 8-of-16 shooting. He certainly appears to have benefited from the Caris LeVert (ankle) injury and should continue to have more responsibility, especially on the offensive end of the floor. He will have poor shooting nights but remains a player that needs to be on rosters everywhere.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Jarrett Allen: Double-doubles in return Friday
Allen finished with 16 points (5-11 FG, 6-8 FT), 12 rebounds, two blocks, and one steal in 31 minutes during Friday's 115-104 victory over the Wizards.
Allen returned after missing two straight games with an illness, putting up a nice double-double in the process. It was just his third such performance of the season despite fouling out. The Nets will face the Clippers on Saturday in the second game of a back-to-back and Allen appears as though he should be good to go barring any setbacks.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Ed Davis: Coming off bench Friday
Davis will come off the bench Friday against the Wizards.
With Jarrett Allen healthy and returning to the starting five, Davis will resume his usual role coming off the pine. He's averaging 5.9 points and 8.3 rebounds in 17.5 minutes this season.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: Out Friday vs. Washington
Hollis-Jefferson (ankle) is out Friday against the Wizards, Billy Reinhardt of Nets Daily reports.
Hollis-Jefferson will miss his fourth game of the year Friday. In his stead, Jared Dudley, DeMarre Carroll and Rodions Kurucs could all see expanded roles.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Jarrett Allen: Cleared to play Friday
Allen (illness) will play Friday against the Wizards, Billy Reinhardt of Nets Daily reports.
Allen has missed the past two games due to an illness. He is expected to take back his starting spot Friday. Over his past six appearances, he's averaged 12.2 points, 8.7 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.5 blocks.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: Questionable with ankle injury
Hollis-Jefferson is questionable for Friday's contest against the Wizards due to an ankle injury, Zach Braziller of the New York Post reports.
Hollis-Jefferson has appeared on the injury report following Wednesday's game against the Heat, where he dropped 14 points, nine rebounds, one steal and one block in 23 minutes. More information on his status may arrive following Friday's morning shootaround.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Jarrett Allen: Questionable Friday vs. Washington
Allen (illness) is questionable Friday against the Wizards, Zach Braziller of the New York Post reports.
Allen has missed the past two games while recovering from an illness, prompting Ed Davis to start and total 15 points, 23 rebounds, three assists and two steals across 38 minutes. If Allen returns Friday, he'll presumably take back his starting role.... See More ... See Less
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
Nets' Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: Coming off bench Wednesday
Hollis-Jefferson will come off the bench in Wednesday's game against the Heat, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Hollis-Jefferson got the start at center Wednesday with Jarrett Allen (out) and the team elected to use small ball to begin the game, but with the Heat boasting big man Hassan Whiteside in the frontcourt, head coach Kenny Atkinson will start Ed Davis at center in an effort to go bigger....
