  • Jared Dudley - F - Brooklyn Nets

    Jared Dudley (left hamstring strain) was scheduled to be re-evaluated on Tuesday.

    Dudley has already made it known that he's planning to return right out of the All-Star break, so unless today's checkup revealed some kind of further issue we're expecting him to be ready for Brooklyn's two games this week. His biggest fantasy impact will be taking minutes from more intriguing players.

  • Caris LeVert - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Caris LeVert will undergo an evaluation from the Nets medical staff on Tuesday.

    There's no sign of any setbacks from LeVert but the team will obviously keep a close eye on him after he's returned from a dislocated foot. This shouldn't be anything more than routine maintenance, so fantasy owners don't need to worry about it.

  • Jared Dudley - F - Brooklyn Nets

    Jared Dudley (left hamstring strain) tweeted that he will be back for the next game as long as "everything goes according to plan."

    The Nets will resume their season on Thursday as they host the Blazers. Dudley won't be on any fantasy radars, but he could be a pest by stealing minutes from Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Rodions Kurucs.

  • Joe Harris - G/F - Brooklyn Nets

    Joe Harris was scorching hot during the entirety of Saturday's 3-point shootout as he bested Stephen Curry with 26 made three-point shots in the final round.

    Harris put an end to Curry's storybook ending of winning the 3-point contest in his hometown of Charlotte by besting him and Buddy Hield. It's no surprise that Harris was a dark-horse candidate entering the contest since he's been hot all season long from behind the arc, making 47 percent of his shots. In the past week, Harris has been rewarding his owners with top-20 value with averages of 22.7 points with 4.7 threes per game on 67.6% shooting. If you could sell high on him, now would be the perfect time.

  • Rodions Kurucs - F - Brooklyn Nets

    After missing the Nets' last game with a left elbow strain, Rodions Kurucs took to the court in the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday and posted 10 points (4-of-9 shooting), four boards, five dimes and two triples in 16 minutes for Team World.

    It's a once in a lifetime experience and it was good to see Kurucs healthy enough to make an appearance. He's been a low-end asset in fantasy thanks to his lack of consistent production but is one to watch especially if you're in deep keeper or dynasty leagues as he's shown some flashes of upside when he's had the chance to shine.

  • Joe Harris - G/F - Brooklyn Nets

    Joe Harris played a career-high 48 minutes on Wednesday and scored 25 points on 9-of-12 shooting with four rebounds and two assists in a 148-139 3OT win against the Cavs.

    He made four of his five shots from deep and has been on an absolute tear over the past three games. In that span, he is averaging 22.7 points with 4.7 threes per game on 67.6-percent shooting which is good for top-20 value. He has asserted himself into the must-own category this season and provides solid efficiency, scoring and threes.

  • Rondae Hollis-Jefferson - F - Brooklyn Nets

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson started for Rodions Kurucs (right elbow sprain) and scored 17 points with five rebounds on 7-of-10 shooting in 29 minutes in a win over the Cavs on Wednesday.

    RHJ is having a disappointing season, and now that he is stuck in a bench role he is not going to improve much on his top-320 value. He scored 12 points in the fourth quarter, which is the most points he has scored in a quarter this season and the most points he has scored in a fourth quarter in his career.

  • Caris LeVert - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Caris LeVert started on Wednesday and scored 12 points with seven rebounds and nine assists on 5-of-14 shooting in 31 minutes in a triple-OT win over the Cavs.

    LeVert was still on a minutes restriction, but he is starting to show signs of his early-season form. Do not look too much into the lack of stats he has put up since his return from the gruesome ankle injury. Now could be the perfect time to buy-low if someone in your league is scared that he won’t be the same player he was before he got hurt.

  • Jarrett Allen - C - Brooklyn Nets

    Jarrett Allen double-doubled on Wednesday with 10 points and 12 rebounds, but he also blocked a career-high six shots as the Nets beat the Cavs in triple-overtime.

    Allen is a consistent middle-round option this season whose main value comes from field goal percentage, rebounds and blocks. He played a crucial role in the overtimes as he ended with 42 minutes. The only knock on his performance is that he shot 4-of-11 from the field and 2-of-4 from the line.

  • DeMarre Carroll - F - Brooklyn Nets

    DeMarre Carroll (left knee soreness) suited up on Wednesday and put up 18 points on 5-of-13 shooting with seven rebounds in 46 minutes in a 3OT win over the Cavs.

    Carroll hit a step-back 3-pointer at the buzzer of the second overtime to send the game to the third overtime. He was a crucial part of the Nets' late-game rotation in this one and helped them seal the deal. Carroll has been a late-round value over the past two weeks, and if he could improve his field goal percentage he would be a solid top-100 play. However, he is more of a deep league guy right now as the Nets are almost fully healthy and his role in the offense should slightly decrease.

  • - G - Brooklyn Nets

    D’Angelo Russell dropped 36 points with seven rebounds and eight assists on 13-of-30 shooting in 43 minutes in a triple-overtime win against the Cavs on Wednesday.

    Russell’s regulation stats were not pretty, but he stepped it up for the Nets in the overtime periods and led them to a win. He hit the dagger in Nik Stauskus’ face with under a minute left in the third overtime. He did have seven turnovers and shot just 5-of-15 from deep, but he made the shots that mattered at the end of the game. He has climbed inside the top-50 for the season and anyone who drafted him hoping for a career year should be thrilled with the season he is having.

  • Rondae Hollis-Jefferson - F - Brooklyn Nets

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will start on Wednesday night against the Cavs.

    Hollis-Jefferson is taking the place of Rodions Kurucs (right elbow sprain). It's been a disappointing season so far but RHJ does have top-100 upside buried somewhere in there. The Brooklyn rotation is crowded enough to make us think that he won't surface on the standard-league radar, but it's not impossible.

  • Caris LeVert - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Caris LeVert will move into the starting lineup against the Cavs on Wednesday.

    LeVert is still on a minutes limit (likely 25-30) and is taking the place of Treveon Graham (personal) tonight. Even with a cap on his ceiling, LeVert could be in for a big game in a great matchup.

  • Caris LeVert - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Caris LeVert remains on a minutes limit.

    LeVert played 23 minutes on Monday night against the Raptors so his limit isn't anything that'll preclude him from fantasy value. Expect him to ramp up after the break and get back to his superb early-season production.
