March 18, 2019, 12:22 amD'Angelo Russell - G - Brooklyn Nets
D'Angelo Russell put up 32 points on 13-of-25 shooting with five rebounds, 10 assists and six 3-pointers against the Clippers on Sunday.
The Nets went on a 10-0 run with 1:02 left in the fourth quarter to tie the game. They did all of that just for Lou Wiliams to hit a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer. Russell continues to be the best player on the Nets and boasts top-60 value on the season. The Nets will need him to stay on top of his game if they want to make it into the playoffs in the Eastern Conference.
March 18, 2019, 12:16 amDeMarre Carroll - F - Brooklyn Nets
DeMarre Carroll played well on Sunday in a loss to the Clippers as he had 22 points on 8-of-13 shooting with seven rebounds.
He made all five of his attempts from the stripe and went 3-of-6 from deep. Carroll has been a deep-league shooting specialist this season and remains in that conversation as long as he remains on the Nets bench.
March 18, 2019, 12:11 amSpencer Dinwiddie - G - Brooklyn Nets
Spencer Dinwiddie shot just 2-of-16 from the field on his way to 13 points in a loss to the Clippers on Sunday.
He shot 8-of-12 from the line and added four rebounds, three assists and one block to the box score. He has been playing well as of late, so he gets some slack for the bad performance. Expect him to bounce back with a better, more efficient performance next time out there.
March 18, 2019, 12:07 amRodions Kurucs - F - Brooklyn Nets
Rodions Kurucs got in foul trouble on Sunday as he fouled out in just 13 minutes, but he was able to get two steals and three blocks before exiting the game.
He scored five points with two rebounds on 2-of-3 shooting as well. He definitely has an Andre Kirilenko type skill set and has the potential to end up as a dominant defensive player. He has put up top-70 value over the past two weeks and is worth owning in standard leagues for the remainder of the season for his shooting and defensive abilities. He should be able to provide late-round value at the very least.
March 17, 2019, 3:56 pmShabazz Napier - G - Brooklyn Nets
Shabazz Napier (right hamstring tightness) is not on the injury report for Sunday's game against the Clippers.
Napier was ruled out on Saturday but should return after the one-game absence. There are no guarantees that he'll be in the rotation, however.

D'Angelo Russell put up 20 points, five rebounds, four assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in Saturday's loss to the Jazz, shooting just 8-for-25 in the process.
It was an ugly night if you had anything riding on efficiency, but most of the Nets were barely present as they got smacked by Utah. Spencer Dinwiddie chipped in 22 points with three triples and a steal on 7-of-16 from the field. Both of Brooklyn's guards are must-start options til the end.
March 17, 2019, 12:38 amJarrett Allen - C - Brooklyn Nets
Jarrett Allen scored four points in 21 minutes on Saturday night but salvaged his line with five rebounds, two steals and four blocks.
Allen's settled into comfortable top-80 value, give or take a few spots, but he's sitting in the top-50 in 9-cat leagues over the last two weeks. That's being buoyed by a .793 mark from the field but Allen will still be a plus shooter even when he reverts to his norm. As long as the blocks are there his floor is safe.
March 17, 2019, 12:35 amDeMarre Carroll - F - Brooklyn Nets
DeMarre Carroll (hyperextended left knee) returned from a one-game absence on Saturday and shot 2-of-9 from the field in 20 minutes.
Carroll had five points, five rebounds, three assists and a triple. He's only a deep-league asset these days.
March 17, 2019, 12:32 amTreveon Graham - F - Brooklyn Nets
Treveon Graham (back soreness) returned from a five-game absence on Saturday night against the Jazz, posting three points, three rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer in 24 minutes.
Graham lost his starting job to Rodions Kurucs when he got hurt and we're not expecting him to take it back. He's a nice depth piece but Graham belongs on the wire in fantasy.
March 17, 2019, 12:30 amCaris LeVert - G - Brooklyn Nets
Caris LeVert had a tough night in Utah on Saturday, scoring just six points on 3-of-12 shooting.
LeVert added four assists and two steals in his 27 minutes. He wasn't the only Net to struggle in the blowout loss, as Joe Harris also scored just six points on 2-of-8 from the field. Brooklyn only had three players crack double digits in this one, and one was end-of-bench guy Theo Pinson (12 points in garbage time).
March 16, 2019, 7:30 pmShabazz Napier - G - Brooklyn Nets
Shabazz Napier (right hamstring tightness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Jazz.
Napier was initially probable, so this is a fairly surprising change. Napier has been largely out of the rotation with Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert back, however, so most fantasy owners won't be affected in any way here.

DeMarre Carroll (hyperextended left knee), Shabazz Napier (tight right hamstring) and Treveon Graham (back soreness) are all probable for Saturday’s game vs. the Jazz.
All can be left on the wire in most formats.

March 15, 2019, 3:44 pmAllen Crabbe - G/F - Brooklyn Nets
Allen Crabbe (knee) will not play on Saturday vs. the Jazz or on Sunday vs. the Clippers.
Crabbe hasn’t really been an option this season but his absence might help Caris LeVert (outside the top-200 in 9-cat since his return) get back on track.

March 13, 2019, 10:19 pmSpencer Dinwiddie - G - Brooklyn Nets
Spencer Dinwiddie was the lone bright spot for the Nets in their 96-108 loss to the Thunder on Wednesday as he recorded a team-high 25 points on 8-of-17 shooting.
Dinwiddie logged 27 minutes off the bench and added five rebounds, two assists, two 3s and one block to the box score tonight. Dinwiddie continues to be the Nets guard to own with top-120 value over the past week. D'Angelo Russell struggled, shooting 6-of-18 from the field to end the night with 14 points, four rebounds, seven dimes, two 3s and three steals.
