Caris LeVert had an impressive all-around performance in a win over the Lakers on Tuesday, tallying 22 points (8-of-20 shooting), seven rebounds, four assists three 3s, two steals and one block.
This is LeVert's third straight game where he's scored 22 points or more. He's finishing 2019-20 off with a flurry and has been just outside the fantasy top-40 over the past two weeks with averages of 25.5 points, 2.8 triples, 5.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 1.3 steals per game.

Caris LeVert put up 23 points, six rebounds, five assists, a steal, a block and four 3-pointers on Sunday against the Bulls.
LeVert's counting stats have been sublime lately but his shooting has been all over the map. He went 7-of-14 today and 9-of-16 on Friday, but bookended his 51-point explosion (17-of-26 FG) with 6-for-19 and 6-for-17 performances. There will be ups and downs but LeVert is getting tons of usage and belongs in all lineups.

Caris LeVert notched his first career triple-double on Friday, dropping 27 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in only 31 minutes as the Nets took down the Spurs 139-120.
LeVert went 3-for-5 from deep and 6-of-7 from the free throw line, rounding out another really solid performance from the third year guard out of Michigan. He has made his way inside the top-50 over the past two weeks, partly due to his 51-point effort vs. the Celtics on Tuesday. Hopefully he keeps this up, as fantasy owners have been waiting for this for the better part of the past two seasons.

Caris LeVert couldn't replicate Tuesday's masterpiece, finishing Wednesday's loss with 14 points on 6-of-19 from the field with four rebounds, six assists and a steal.
LeVert might've had tired legs tonight, which is more than acceptable given his 51-point explosion to carry the Nets to victory last night. He's locked in as a must-start option with Kyrie Irving sidelined but nights like this are a helpful reminder of LeVert's floor when the shot isn't working quite right.

Caris LeVert exploded for a career-best 51 points (17-of-26 FGs, 12-of-18 FTs) with five triples and chipped in four rebounds, five assists and a steal in 36 minutes in an overtime victory vs. the Celtics on Tuesday.
LeVert came alive in the fourth with 26 points in the quarter and then scored all 11 of the Nets' points in overtime. He’s getting all the volume he can handle right now, and that has LeVert producing early-round value over the last month. If you can handle a low field goal percentage on a high volume, LeVert is performing like a fantasy star for you.

Kenny Atkinson credits Caris LeVert's recent success to joining the Nets starting lineup.
LeVert has been on an impressive run since entering the starting lineup on February 3. Atkinson states, "getting him into the starting lineup helped his confidence". Over the last month LeVert has posted top-50 numbers averaging 21.2 points, 4.7 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game. As long as LeVert can stay healthy the usage will continue to be there for the remainder of the season.

Caris LeVert (right hand contusion) was off his game on Saturday in a loss to the Heat, hitting just 6-of-17 shots from the field to finish with 15 points, three rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointer, one steal and four turnovers.
It's possible that LeVert was bothered by the contusion on his right hand tonight, which could explain his shooting struggles from the field. The injury is not serious, so hopefully, it's just a matter of time until he bounces back.

Caris LeVert (right hand contusion) is available for Saturday's game against the Heat.
LeVert was added to the injury report this morning as questionable, but he'll be on the floor and aiming to continue his fantastic run since Kyrie Irving exited the lineup. Make sure he's in your lineups going forward, though you might have to deal with some ugly shooting nights in exchange for the gaudy lines.

Caris LeVert (right hand contusion) is questionable against the Heat on Saturday.
LeVert has taken over as the star of the team since being inserted into the starting lineup 10 games ago and has averaged 23.3 points, 2.7 triples, 4.2 rebounds 5.1 assists, 2.1 steals with a 43/42/88 shooting line over that stretch so hopefully this is not a serious injury. Garrett Temple will likely get the start if LeVert needs to miss any time and has been gaining steam regardless with top-50 value coming off the bench the last four games.

Caris LeVert dropped a team-high 34 points (10-20 FG, 5-8 3PT, 9-11 FT) on Wednesday night while tacking on six rebounds, seven assists, and four steals.
This was arguably LeVert's best game of the season. He shot with high efficiencies and padded the rest of his line with solid totals. With Kyrie Irving done for the season, LeVert will have plenty of opportunity for more nights like this.

Caris LeVert chucked at will on Thursday night, going 9-of-29 from the floor to get to his 25 points, six boards, five assists and three triples in a team-high 39 minutes.
LeVert may have shot the Nets out of this game with this abysmal shooting output but he's going to get all kinds of opportunity with Kyrie Irving shut down for the season. We definitely expected more from LeVert this year but it's hard to swallow this horrible shooting. We'll just have to hope he goes on a heater so we can get more high-scoring nights the rest of the way.

Caris LeVert led the Nets in scoring with 20 points (10-of-20 from the floor), adding seven rebounds, four assists and four steals in 36 minutes on Wednesday.
LeVert has scored at least 20 points in four of the past five games and has a big boost in value until Kyrie Irving (knee) returns. LeVert has been a top-30 player in 9-cat leagues since Irving went down but is outside the top-250 on the season. Try and sell high on LeVert after this hot stretch since he's unlikely to have standard-league value when Irving returns.

Kyrie Irving (knee) is being ruled out ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Raptors.
There still isn't a definitive timetable for Irving's return, but he will get another week of rest through the All-Star break, with the hope of being ready against the Sixers on February 20th. Spencer Dinwiddie will get another start at PG, while Caris LeVert will try to continue his recent hot stretch.

Caris LeVert fell back to earth with just 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting, two rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes in a 106-105 road win over the Pacers on Monday.
After three-straight games of scoring at least 23 points, LeVert was bound to revert to his poor-shooting ways. He's a wild card, but his opportunities to put up flashy numbers will be limited once again when Kyrie Irving returns. Joe Harris fared better in the win with 15 points, eight boards, two dimes and four triples in 34 minutes.

Caris LeVert scored a career-high 37 points (12-of-18 from the field) to go with four assists and six triples on Saturday.
LeVert was also a perfect 7-of-7 from the line in one of the best performances of his career. LeVert has scored 29, 23 and 37 points in the past three games. Kyrie Irving (knee) should return soon and will likely end LeVert's run of standard-league value. Try to sell high on LeVert after this hot stretch before it falls apart.
