    Caris LeVert hit just 4-of-10 shots from the field and 3-of-6 shots from the line to finish Wednesday's game with just 12 points, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, three dimes and one steal.

    LeVert is not quite himself just yet and could be worth a spot of patience while he gets his legs back. He's a borderline buy-low guy, if you believe in an eventual bounce-back scenario.

    Caris LeVert was underwhelming once again in 26 minutes off the bench on Tuesday, putting up 11 points on 5-of-13 shooting, two rebounds, three assists, one block and one trey in a loss to the Jazz.

    This was LeVert's fifth game back from injury, and he can be expected to improve. But right now, he's outside the top-250 in 8-cat leagues and outside the top-325 in 9-cat leagues in these five most recent games. Hold onto him or pick him up and hope the Nets get it figured out with him as an integral piece.

  • Kyrie Irving
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Kyrie Irving (right shoulder impingement) finally returned to the court on Sunday and looked great, roasting the Hawks for 21 points on 10-of-11 shooting in just 20 minutes of action.

    Irving missed the last 26 games so we'd expect to see more minutes restrictions for the foreseeable future. He added four rebounds, three assists, a steal and a 3-pointer tonight and he's safe to get back into lineups as long as you're not expecting Kyrie to get back to first-round output. Spencer Dinwiddie started next to Irving in this game and had seven points, four rebounds in eight assists in 25 minutes while Caris LeVert had 13 points and three steals in 22 minutes off the bench. Those two are the most likely to be affected by Irving's return but we'll draw more serious conclusions from a game that isn't a blowout — Brooklyn won by 22.

    Caris LeVert finished Friday's win over the Heat with 11 points (4-for-15 shooting), four assists, three rebounds and three triples across 24 minutes.

    LeVert's minutes are slowly being ramped up, but Rodions Kurucs got the start again tonight adding in 19 points and four triples. It's only a matter of time before LeVert rejoins the starting unit.

    Caris LeVert came off the bench on Tuesday, scoring 20 points (7-of-16 FGs, 4-of-7 FTs) and adding six rebounds, three assists and two triples in 22 minutes as the Nets lost 103-111 to the Thunder in overtime.

    LeVert saw his minutes increase by about six in his second game back from injury. The Nets next play on Friday, so hopefully LeVert will be ready to play and possibly rejoin the starting lineup. Rodions Kurucs kept his starting spot warm tonight but had just four points and four rebounds in 19 minutes.

    Caris LeVert may have his minutes limit bumped up and could even start on Tuesday.

    Coach Atkinson has said that he'll "bump him up a little" and that he's still undecided as to whether or not he'll start. This is great news for LeVert owners, who should be plugging him into all lineups going forward.

    Caris LeVert (sprained right thumb) won't play on Monday but is expected to be available on Tuesday against the Thunder.

    LeVert finally returned on Saturday after undergoing surgery in November. While he averaged 16.4 points last campaign, his production dipped in the early going this season. However, his owners should be able to activate him going forward and Garrett Temple may see fewer opportunities.

    Caris LeVert (thumb) has been ruled out of Monday's game versus the Magic.

    LeVert is just taking a maintenance day after playing in his first game since surgery on Saturday. LeVert is being handled with kid gloves and it may take some time before the Nets give him a full load.

    Caris LeVert (thumb surgery) came off the bench and was on a minute limit in his return to action on Saturday but was looking good as he posted 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting with two triples and one assist.

    LeVert was in shape and probably could have logged more floor time. He should see those minutes increase soon, likely even joining the starting lineup and pushing Garrett Temple (12 points, 4-of-11 shooting, five rebounds, three 3s, three assists) to the bench.

    Caris LeVert (right thumb surgery) will be in the lineup on Saturday against the Raptors.

    LeVert has missed the last 24 games but will play both guard positions upon his return. We'd expect some minutes restrictions until his conditioning gets back to where it needs to be but there's a nice window of opportunity for him to get rolling as a heavy-usage combo guard while Kyrie Irving is still out. He's a nice speculative add in 12-team leagues if you can afford to be patient.

    Caris LeVert (right thumb) has been listed as probable for Saturday's contest against the Raptors.

    LeVert was not playing well before the thumb issue arose this season, but based on his upside he will get scooped up in many leagues. With Kyrie Irving's continued absence in mind, LeVert should not have much trouble sharing possessions with Spencer Dinwiddie. His return would chip into Garrett Temple's role. The Nets will handle the fragile LeVert with kid gloves as he works his way back into the rotation.

    Caris LeVert is expected to return to the lineup on Saturday after missing the last 24 games because of right thumb surgery.

    LeVert was outside the top-150 before he got hurt thanks to some terrible percentages (he's somehow gotten worse at free throws every single season in his career) and increased turnovers, but he might be able to find a groove with Kyrie Irving still out of action. He's not necessarily a must-add guy in 12-team leagues but he probably has more upside than most players you'll see on waivers these days.

    Caris LeVert (right thumb) will not play in Thursday's matchup vs. the Mavs.

    LeVert will miss his 24th consecutive game on Thursday. After only playing in 40 games last season, LeVert is on pace to miss even more games this year. He has yet to prove that he can consistently stay on the court over the last couple seasons.

    Caris LeVert (right thumb) has been ruled out of Monday's game versus the Timberwolves.

    LeVert is on the cusp of returning and has been traveling with the team. He's worth an add wherever he is available. Garrett Temple will likely move to the bench once LeVert is healthy enough to play a starting workload.

    Caris LeVert (right thumb) is traveling with the Nets but unlikely to play on Saturday.

    The Nets simply want LeVert to get some more practices in before he returns to the court. It sounds as though he could be ready to go next week, which means that fantasy GMs should start considering a pickup if LeVert is still on any waiver wires. You may have to deal with poor shooting but LeVert should be able to pump out counting stats, especially with Kyrie Irving still out indefinitely.
