    Irving missed Sunday's contest after the tragic news of Kobe Bryant's sudden death. All signs are pointing to Irving's return to the court on Wednesday so the All-Star can be started across all fantasy formats.

  • Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (illness) is available for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    Luwawu-Cabarrot doesn't get much playing time, but this is confirmation that he'll be an option for the Nets.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Kyrie Irving (personal) and DeAndre Jordan (finger) are not listed on the Nets injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    Irving is ready to rock after missing Sunday's game against the Knicks to grieve. He's going to be playing with a heavy heart after losing a close friend and is someone to target in DFS lineups for his ability to blow up. DeAndre Jordan may get back into the starting lineup for this one as well.

    Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (illness) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    Luwawu-Cabarrot is merely a depth option for the Nets and can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said on Tuesday that he isn't sure if Kyrie Irving (personal) will play against the Pistons on Wednesday, but the team is 'optimistic' that he will be out there after he returned to practice on Tuesday.

    Keep tabs on the situation as more information rolls in. If Irving sits this one out, Spencer Dinwiddie would start at PG again and maintain peak usage.

  • DeAndre Jordan
    C, Brooklyn Nets

    DeAndre Jordan (right middle finger dislocation) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    With Jordan back in the lineup, Jarrett Allen will take a hit as the two will presumably return to splitting C minutes. Nicolas Claxton had seen extra run the past few games, but he will be relegated to deeper-reserve status for this one.

    Kyrie Irving (personal), who missed Sunday's game against the Knicks, participated in Tuesday's practice.

    Irving missed Sunday's game after hearing about the sudden tragic news about his friend Kobe Bryant. The tragedy has shaken the entire sports world. Irving gets the Pistons on Wednesday, in what is sure to be an inspired performance from the oft-injured star PG.

  • Jarrett Allen
    C, Brooklyn Nets

    Jarrett Allen had an off-night against the Knicks on Sunday, tallying five points, five rebounds, two blocks and two turnovers.

    At least Allen had two swats to save his boxscore. Consider this line an anomaly for Allen, who is receiving plenty of minutes as long as DeAndre Jordan is out with a dislocated finger. Allen is one of the few Nets who can actually play with or without Kyrie Irving in the lineup. Allen is a solid mid-round value right now.

  • Joe Harris
    SF, Brooklyn Nets

    Joe Harris put up 11 points (5-of-10 FG), four rebounds, one 3-pointer, two steals and two turnovers against the Knicks on Sunday.

    The low scoring figures continue for Harris, who is going to need to hit more than one 3-pointer to be useful. Try and stay patient as Harris is one of the best long-range shooters around, and the Nets are still feeding him plenty of minutes. Taurean Prince was a bit better in comparison, going for 14 points, four assists, three rebounds and three 3-pointers. If Prince's jumper can get consistent he is going to be a must-add in many leagues, and he is well worth the pickup in 14-team leagues already.

  • Caris LeVert
    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Caris LeVert stunk on Sunday vs. the Knicks, totaling seven points (2-of-12 FG), three rebounds, three assists and one steal over 23 minutes.

    With Kyrie Irving (personal) missing this game there was some reason to hope that LeVert would take on a bigger role, but things went in the opposite direction. If you are running out of options to stay competitive, LeVert is looking more and more like a drop candidate in standard leagues. The wing competition in Brooklyn is making it tough for LeVert to carve out minutes beyond the mid-20s.

  • Spencer Dinwiddie
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Spencer Dinwiddie drew the start on Sunday against the Knicks and led the Nets with 23 points, five assists, four rebounds, two 3-pointers and one block.

    It was a solid all-around effort for Dinwiddie who was number one in the offensive pecking order with Kyrie Irving (personal) sitting out the game. When Irving is out you can count on Dinwiddie for an increased points total, but he will still retain late-round value as he increases his passing figures as an off-ball option alongside Irving.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Kyrie Irving (personal) will not play in Sunday's game against the Knicks.

    Coach Kenny Atkinson shared that one of his players was extremely close with Kobe Bryant and ruled Irving out in the same breath. We send our best wishes to Irving as this news must be hitting him harder than most. Spencer Dinwiddie will get another start, although the Nets' plan is still to bring him off the bench whenever Irving returns to the lineup.

  • DeAndre Jordan
    C, Brooklyn Nets

    DeAndre Jordan (right middle finger dislocation) is being listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Knicks.

    His teammate Nicolas Claxton has already been made available, so perhaps the Nets choose to rest Jordan one more game. His return won't matter much in fantasy, except that it would depress Jarrett Allen's fantasy value.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Kyrie Irving was simply marvelous in Saturday's 121-111 win over the Pistons, dropping 45 points with six rebounds, seven assists and only one turnover.

    Irving is providing patient fantasy owners first-round value, especially with nights like this. The 45 points are great, as he shot 15-of-30 from the field, but he also went a perfect 10-of-10 from the charity stripe to go along with just one turnover. It would have been a near-perfect game had he gotten a steal or two, but you would be hard pressed to find a fantasy owner who was not thrilled to see this stat line.
