Caris LeVert, despite starting for Allen Crabbe (knee) and playing 24 minutes, had just six points, three rebounds and six assists on Tuesday vs. the Kings.
LeVert is still far from his pre-injury production as he once again illustrated tonight. If you're desperate for assists, he's a good option. But with his recent lack of steals, threes and points, he's just not going to be anything like early-season Caris LeVert.

Caris LeVert had a tough night in Utah on Saturday, scoring just six points on 3-of-12 shooting.
LeVert added four assists and two steals in his 27 minutes. He wasn't the only Net to struggle in the blowout loss, as Joe Harris also scored just six points on 2-of-8 from the field. Brooklyn only had three players crack double digits in this one, and one was end-of-bench guy Theo Pinson (12 points in garbage time).

Allen Crabbe (knee) will not play on Saturday vs. the Jazz or on Sunday vs. the Clippers.
Crabbe hasn’t really been an option this season but his absence might help Caris LeVert (outside the top-200 in 9-cat since his return) get back on track.

Caris LeVert could not get it going in Wednesday's loss to the Thunder, tallying just eight points on 3-of-10 shooting with six boards, one 3-pointer and four dimes..
LeVert has yet to return to his pre-injury form and it may be time to move on. He's had trouble making a splash in fantasy with Spencer Dinwiddie now healthy and playing well. LeVert played just 19 minutes tonight which did not help his cause.
March 11, 2019, 10:12 pmCaris LeVert - G - Brooklyn Nets
Caris LeVert scored 12 points on 6-of-13 shooting with five boards, two assists and a steal in Monday's 103-75 win over the Pistons.
LeVert is looking better each game, but the amount of ball-handling duties is limited due to the Nets having three capable point guards. It'll be hard for him to reach the form he had prior to his injury due to the Nets being at full strength.
March 6, 2019, 10:37 amCaris LeVert - G - Brooklyn Nets
In coach Kenny Atkinson’s latest lineup configuration, Caris LeVert shifted to the second unit and teamed with Spencer Dinwiddie for the best game for each player since they returned last month from respective long-term injuries.
It is a combination Atkinson sounds likely to stick with at least Wednesday night against the Cavs, with Allen Crabbe playing alongside All-Star D’Angelo Russell in the starting lineup. LeVert had been slow to regain his rhythm following a 10-week absence with a foot injury, averaging 9.3 points and shooting 35.1 percent from the floor over his first nine appearances and the move to the second unit has been great so far. The move also helped Dinwiddie who finished with 16 points on Monday, his highest total in three games since returning from a thumb surgery and on 6-for-8 shooting, after missing 17-of-25 shots in his previous two appearances.

Caris LeVert scored 18 points off the bench in a 127-88 win over the Mavs on Monday, adding five rebounds, five assists, a steal and two threes in 27 minutes.
Since this was such a blowout, it's tough to tell what's exactly predictable with Spencer Dinwiddie back. He may need another teammate to go down in order to get back to his early-season dominance. DeMarre Carroll had a big game, going 22-5-4 with five treys on the wing, as well.
March 1, 2019, 10:41 pmCaris LeVert - G - Brooklyn Nets
Caris LeVert scored 14 points, grabbed seven rebounds and handed out four dimes in Friday's loss to the Hornets.
He also hit two 3-pointers and blocked a shot in 24 minutes. Spencer Dinwiddie returned from a 14-game absence and played 23 minutes in what is suddenly a crowded backcourt. LeVert is a hold until we see how the roles play out, but he could take a big hit with Dinwiddie's return.
February 27, 2019, 10:28 pmCaris LeVert - G - Brooklyn Nets
Caris LeVert dropped a major dud in Wednesday's home loss to the Wizards, playing only 20 minutes and missing all five shots to finish scoreless with two rebounds and two turnovers.
LeVert is unlikely to recapture the value that had him looking like a breakout star earlier in the season, but he's in line for some improvement considering he's well below his typical numbers with a .308 mark from the field over the last five. Toss this one in the trash and move on.
February 25, 2019, 10:32 pmCaris LeVert - G - Brooklyn Nets
Caris LeVert showed some signs of life on Monday with 15 points on 5-of-14 shooting to go with five rebounds, seven assists, two triples and a block.
There it is. We've been waiting for him to assume more ball-handling duties and tonight we finally got to see it. He dished out the most dimes since his cake matchup against the Cavs and things are looking bright for the young Brooklyn star. The shooting isn't quite there yet but that's the last thing that gets corrected when a player returns from a lengthy absence.
February 23, 2019, 10:04 pmCaris LeVert - G - Brooklyn Nets
Caris LeVert finished Saturday's win with six points (2-of-8 shooting), five rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block and a pair of 3-pointers in 30 minutes but also stopped Kemba Walker on the final possession to secure a win.
LeVert's offensive game wasn't there tonight but the playing time continues to increase and he brought it on the defensive end tonight. James Borrgeo is upset at the lack of a call on the play but the Nets escaped. Make sure LeVert is in your lineups going forward as he'll look to hit his stride for Brooklyn's playoff run.
February 21, 2019, 10:01 pmCaris LeVert - G - Brooklyn Nets
Caris LeVert started in Thursday's 99-113 loss to the Blazers and scored 12 points on 4-of-11 shooting with an assist, two steals and a triple.
LeVert joined the starting lineup for the first time since returning from injury but only logged 21 minutes. He's getting better with each game and should start to assume more ball handling duties as each game passes. There's still a strong chance that he returns to form in time for the fantasy playoffs as he's still getting his legs under him.
February 19, 2019, 4:39 pmCaris 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.
