Fantasy News

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Kyrie Irving scored 19 points on 7-for-17 shooting in Friday's 107-123 loss to the Raptors on Friday, adding four assists, three rebounds, two steals and two 3-pointers in a team-high 25 minutes.

    The most important thing to see here is that Irving logged a healthy 25 minutes after aggravating a facial fracture back on October 10. He appears ready to go and primed to return top-15 value on the season.

  • Caris LeVert
    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Caris LeVert scored 10 points on 4-for-9 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists, two 3-pointers and two steals in Friday's loss to Toronto.

    LeVert, who has struggled with injuries in the past, logged 24 minutes on Friday – good for second on the team. It's good to see him play well in extended preseason minutes as the only thing that's kept him from making a jump as a fantasy asset has been his health.

  • Spencer Dinwiddie
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Spencer Dinwiddie shot an abysmal 3-for-14 in Friday's loss to the Raptors while adding 13 points, four assists, three 3-pointers, two rebounds and one steal.

    Dinwiddie's minus-16 was the worst on the team as this was mostly a forgettable evening for the sixth-year man out of Colorado. That said, expect him to continue to produce on the level he did last year and be a solid fantays depth piece offering points, assists and threes on most nights.

  • Jarrett Allen
    C, Brooklyn Nets

    Jarrett Allen got the start over Deandre Jordan on Friday and played 19 minutes as he totaled 12 points (5-for-7 shooting), seven rebounds, one steal and one block in the loss to Toronto.

    Allen virtually split time with Jordan in this one, who played 20 minutes and scored five points with nine rebounds. Having both big men will be good for the Nets but bad for their overall fantasy upside, capping them around top-125 value.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Kyrie Irving (facial contusion) may have his minutes limited but should still receive "significant" playing time in Friday's preseason finale.

    Irving sustained a facial fracture before the preseason began, and despite an aggravation it was never expected to sideline him into the regular season. The playing time news is big for DFS players, so expect Uncle Drew to be a popular pick on Friday.

    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
    PF, Brooklyn Nets

    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
    C, Brooklyn Nets

    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

    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.

    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.
