  • Spencer Dinwiddie - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Spencer Dinwiddie went off for 33 points with a plethora of clutch shots to give the Nets a 145-142 overtime win against the Rockets on Wednesday.

    Dinwiddie hit three straight 3-pointers to end regulation and send the game to overtime. The last of these 3-pointers was a 29-foot three in Austin Rivers' face. He also made the game-winning 3-point play late in overtime. Dinwiddie had about as clutch of a game as you could possibly have and forced D'Angelo Russell to stay on the bench due to his explosive play. Russell ended with 10 points and seven assists on 4-of-11 shooting. Dinwiddie was able to add 10 assists to the box score as well. Although Russell has been better on the season, both guys should be owned in all formats and either of them could go off at any given moment.

  • Jarrett Allen - C - Brooklyn Nets

    Jarrett Allen scored 20 points to go along with 24 rebounds and three blocks in a huge overtime win against the Rockets on Wednesday.

    He shot 10-of-19 from the field and missed his only attempt from the free-throw line. However, that miss turned into a crucial Spencer Dinwiddie 3-point play to give the Nets a one point lead late in overtime. Allen took advantage of Clint Capela being sidelined with a thumb injury as he was being guarded by Gary Clark and PJ Tucker for much of this game. He also played a team-high 43 minutes and showed why he has been the highest valued fantasy player on the Nets as he is inside the top-60. He has been a top-20 value over the past two weeks and is showing his early-round potential. Also, he added James Harden to the list of superstars he blocked this season.

  • DeMarre Carroll - F - Brooklyn Nets

    DeMarre Carroll played well in an overtime win over the Rockets on Wednesday as he put up 22 points on 6-of-13 shooting.

    Over the past two weeks, he has been a late-round value after having a rocky start to the season. Joe Harris, who had 17 points with four rebounds and seven assists, and Carroll were two of the five on the court to end this game; Treveon Graham, Spencer Dinwiddie and Jarrett Allen made up the remainder of the lineup. Both Harris and Carroll should be on fantasy radars in deeper leagues as they are a crucial part of the Nets’ rotation and provide good value in points and 3-pointers.

  • Treveon Graham - F - Brooklyn Nets

    Treveon Graham had a breakout game in a crucial overtime win over the Rockets on Wednesday as he put up 21 points with five rebounds on 7-of-9 shooting.

    He made three 3-pointers and had the tough task of having to guard James Harden on a number of possessions in this game. He was on the bench late in this game until Rodions Kurucs, who had 14 points and five rebounds on 7-of-12 shooting, fouled out. Graham guarded Harden on the last possession of regulation and forced him into a tough, contested 3-pointer that he missed. Despite receiving minutes in the upper-20’s since Jared Dudley got hurt, Graham was not able to contribute much to the box score prior to this game. You should not pick him up just yet, but it was great to see him have a performance like this one for the Nets.

  • Shabazz Napier - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Shabazz Napier (right hamstring tightness) is available for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

    Napier returns to his third PG role and really shouldn't be a fantasy consideration unless you're betting big on a blowout.

  • Rondae Hollis-Jefferson - F - Brooklyn Nets

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (right adductor strain) will play on Wednesday night.

    Hollis-Jefferson has missed the last six games with his second groin injury of the season. Treveon Graham has been starting at "power forward" with Jared Dudley also sidelined and that may still be the case tonight with RHJ on an unspecified minutes limit. He's still only an option in deep leagues given his performance this season but there's a track record of standard-league production if you want to toss him onto watch lists.

  • Shabazz Napier - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Shabazz Napier (right hamstring tightness) is questionable for Wednesday's game.

    Napier's working as Brooklyn's third point guard so there isn't a lot for fantasy owners to monitor aside from the occasional outburst. The Nets are deep enough that his minutes will be spread around a handful of players if he ends up sitting out.

  • Jared Dudley - F - Brooklyn Nets

    Jared Dudley (left hamstring strain) will not play on Wednesday.

    This will be Dudley's third straight game on the sidelines and his absence has had minimal effects on fantasy leagues. With Rondae Hollis-Jefferson ready to return, the Nets will be able to comfortably fill the void at power forward that Dudley's left behind.

  • Rondae Hollis-Jefferson - F - Brooklyn Nets

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (right adductor strain) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

    On Monday Kenny Atkinson said he was hoping Hollis-Jefferson could return for this game, and it looks like he'll be back from his six-game absence. Rodions Kurucs has been excellent and should stick in the starting lineup, though RHJ will likely bump Treveon Graham back to the bench. It's been a rough go for Hollis-Jefferson this year and he's only a stash in 14-teamers, though he'd require some quick action if he started stringing good games together.

  • D'Angelo Russell - G - Brooklyn Nets

    D'Angelo Russell scored 34 points on 13-of-26 shooting with seven 3-pointers, five rebounds, seven assist, a steal and a block in Monday's 109-102 win over the Celtics.

    Russell got hot early and set the tone for the Nets who would be up by as much as 26 points in this one. The Celtics were a bit shorthanded, but Russell has been letting it fly lately and he's been hot – over his last five games he's averaging 22.8 points and 3.4 triples on .511 shooting.

  • Rodions Kurucs - F - Brooklyn Nets

    Rodions Kurucs scored 19 points on 7-of-11 shooting with four rebounds, an assist, two steals and two triples on Monday.

    Kurucs was given 33 minutes on Monday, but Rondae Hollis-Jefferson might return to action on Wednesday which will limit his usage. He's a must-own player if any of the forwards in Brooklyn were to miss extended time, but with a healthy roster it's hard for Kurucs to stay consistent.

  • Jarrett Allen - C - Brooklyn Nets

    Jarrett Allen scored 19 points on 5-of-9 shooting with 12 rebounds, two assists, a steal and four blocks against the Celtics on Monday.

    Allen dominated the paint on both ends of the floor tonight and made his presence felt. He was a team-high plus-13 and tonight was a flash of the potential owners were hoping for when they selected him with a mid-round pick on draft day.

  • DeMarre Carroll - F - Brooklyn Nets

    DeMarre Carroll grabbed a career-high 14 boards to go with 10 points, two assists, a block and a 3-pointer on Monday.

    Carroll marred his line with 2-for-15 shooting with a 1-for-9 mark beyond the arc. He's an iffy play at best and with Rondae Hollis-Jefferson questionable to play on Wednesday, which should send Carroll back to waiver wire fodder.

  • Treveon Graham - F - Brooklyn Nets

    Treveon Graham will stick in the starting lineup on Monday.

    Graham's been working as the nominal power forward, and he's become a coaching staff favorite in his first year with the Nets despite missing time with a torn hamstring. We'd expect him to move to the bench eventually, however, and his low-usage role means he's only a target in the deepest of leagues whether he's starting or not.
