  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Kyrie Irving, who missed time with a facial contusion, practiced on Wednesday and is expected to play on Friday.

    This is good news for his availability going forward. Irving should be selected by the second round this season in most leagues.

    The Nets have signed guards Devin Cannady and CJ Massinburg to unspecified contracts on Tuesday.

    Cannady and Massinburg are not on the fantasy radar.

  • Deng Adel

    The Nets have waived Deng Adel and John Egbunu.

    No surprises here as teams are starting to trim rosters with the preseason slate almost finished. Adel spent time with the Cavs last season and may be able to latch on with another team, while Egbunu is still more of an unknown.

  • Jarrett Allen

    The Nets have exercised their contract options on Jarrett Allen and Dzanan Musa.

    No surprises here, with both players expected to play important roles down the line (Allen is already) to complement Brooklyn's new superstar core. Allen is a decent target in the late-middle rounds, even if he has to split time with DeAndre Jordan, while Musa is only a dynasty option this season.

  • Caris LeVert
    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Caris Levert led the Nets over the Lakers on Saturday 91-77, scoring 22 points to go with four rebounds, five assists and three steals in 23 minutes.

    Levert was questionable for this game after getting poked in the eye on Thursday but that didn't slow him down as put on a show, shooting 8-of-11 from the field and 3-of-4 from downtown. Taurean Prince added 14 points, four rebounds, two assists, a steal and four triples in 21 minutes off the bench as Rodions Kurucs got the start in this one without much to show on the stat sheet, also playing 21 minutes.

  • Caris LeVert
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Caris LeVert (eye) is questionable for Saturday's tilt against the Lakers.

    LeVert left one minute into the last game after he got poked in the eye. The Nets just appear to just be acting cautiously and probably want to take a closer look at some of the newer players at the end of their bench. Expect an update on LeVert's status closer to game time.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Kyrie Irving (facial contusion) has been ruled out for Saturday’s preseason game against the Lakers.

    Irving re-aggravated his facial injury in the first quarter of the last preseason game and it’s fair for he and the team to decide that it was worth sitting the next one out to give it more time to heal. This doesn’t figure to linger with Irving much heading into the season. He is still a borderline first round pick.

  • Spencer Dinwiddie
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Spencer Dinwiddie scored a game-high 20 points with seven assists, three treys and a steal in 24 minutes of action in Thursday's preseason game against the Lakers.

    Dinwiddie is going to get a lot of run whether it comes off the bench or in a starting role as he looks to be ready for the regular season opener. Draft him as you normally would.

  • DeAndre Jordan
    C, Brooklyn Nets

    DeAndre Jordan got the start over Jarrett Allen against the Lakers on Thursday.

    Jordan wound up playing 25 minutes to Allen's 23 in what is likely to be an even timeshare regardless of who starts. Jordan finished the game with five points, seven boards, three dimes, three blocks and a steal. Allen finished with four points, seven boards, four blocks and a steal. They both will have value, but the timeshare caps both men's upside.

  • Caris LeVert
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Caris LeVert left Thursday's game against the Lakers after just one minute after getting poked in the eye.

    Assuming there is nothing more to the injury, LeVert should be ready for the regular season with a little under two weeks to go before the regular season opener.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Kyrie Irving (facial fracture) re-aggravated his facial injury during the first minute of Thursday's preseason game against the Lakers after taking a shot to the face from Rajon Rondo.

    Irving looked to be in pain as he left the game and was ruled out for the remainder shortly after. The early word is that the team doesn't think it is too severe, but this will be a situation to monitor. Stay tuned.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Kenny Atkinson said that Kyrie Irving (facial fracture) will play against the Lakers on Thursday.

    Irving was expected to be ready by opening night anyway but this is even better. The swelling had gone down enough for him to practice on Tuesday with a mask and he should be good to go going forward. There is no word on how long he will be playing with the mask but it is not something new to him as he has done so in both Boston and Cleveland. The game against the Lakers will take place in China where the teams will play a two-game set.

  • Jarrett Allen
    C, Brooklyn Nets

    Jarrett Allen was perfect from the field on Friday night as he posted 12 points, five rebounds, one steal and one block across 20 minutes en route to the victory.

    Allen basically split time with the recently-acquired Deandre Jordan who had 19 minutes off the bench with 11 poins and eight rebounds on 4-for-4 shooting. It will be interesting to see how the Nets handle this timeshare but it can't really help either take a big jump this season.

  • Caris LeVert
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Caris Levert flashed his playmaking ability on Friday night with nine assists to go along with 13 points, three steals and one three as the Nets defeated Franca.

    This could be a big year for Levert, who just needs to stay healthy and should finally enjoy the breakout season everyone is waiting for. The added playmaking can only further increase his fantasy appeal.

  • Spencer Dinwiddie
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Spencer Dinwiddie accumulated 12 rebounds, seven assists, five points, one steal and one three across 22 minutes on Friday night.

    This was an impressive rebounding effort from the 6' 6" guard who should continue to play a prominent role for the Nets either off the bench or in the starting lineup.
