    Chris Chiozza was a bright spot for the Nets in Friday's Game 3 loss, scoring 14 points and racking up three assists, four steals and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes off the bench.

    Chiozza had some beautiful dimes and was throwing in some great ball-fakes. He did a solid job running the offense and generated a lot of good looks — unfortunately the Nets hit just 30-of-90 from the field and 16-of-51 from deep, turning Chiozza's work into rebounds. We'll see if this strong outing leads to rotation changes in Game 4, as the Nets have struggled to create much against Toronto's defense so far.

  • Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot replaced Rodions Kurucs in the starting lineup in Game 2 after an impressive performance in the series opener and had another solid game on Wednesday, finishing with 17 points (6-of-16) with two rebounds, one steal, three treys and two turnovers in 36 minutes.

    TLC didn't shoot the ball as well as he did in Game 1 but far outperformed Kurucs for the second straight game. The Nets had an eight-man rotation in Game 2 with Tyler Johnson and Chris Chiozza being the other two players who came in off the bench. Chiozza had four assists in 12 minutes while Johnson pitched in with 12 points, three rebounds, two assists, one block, two 3-pointers and one turnover in 23 minutes. TLC has cemented himself as one of the key rotation players for the remainder of the postseason while Johnson is in the sixth-man role. Kurucs has been very disappointing and has clearly lost his job to TLC.

    Chris Chiozza was not listed on the Nets' injury report prior to Monday's Game 1 vs. the Raptors.

    Chiozza missed the Nets' final seeding game with adductor tightness, but it appears he is ready to go for the team's first matchup against the defending champions. Chiozza has been a consistent source of dimes, but his upside is capped when Caris LeVert isn't resting.

    Chris Chiozza will miss Thursday's game with right adductor tightness.

    Chiozza had been playing well and was a solid source of dimes, but will rest for the final game as the Nets get ready for the playoffs.

    The Nets may not have their backup point guard, Chris Chiozza (right adductor tightness), on Thursday when they face the Blazers.

    Chiozza has played 21.8 mpg over all seven seeding games so far and has returned top-150 value in 8/9-cat formats. We should expect an update sometime on Thursday prior to the 6:00 PM PST tip-off.

    Chris Chiozza (right adductor tightness) missed practice on Wednesday and will be evaluated on Thursday.

    Chiozza left Tuesday's game with the issue, and his status for Thursday's contest against the Blazers could be in doubt. However, it's not believed to be a severe injury. While Chiozza has been in the Nets' rotation since March, he is not a major factor in fantasy.

    The Nets will have to play the remainder of Tuesday's game without Chris Chiozza (right adductor tightness).

    Chiozza left the game and will not return to action although he is back on the bench so we shouldn't expect this to be too serious. Chiozza should be considered questionable for the team's final seeding game on Thursday vs. Portland until we learn more.

  • Caris LeVert
    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Caris LeVert (left thigh contusion), Joe Harris (left groin contusion) and Jarrett Allen (left ankle sprain) will all miss Tuesday's game vs. the Magic.

    All three players will continue to be managed leading into the playoffs. After initially being ruled out of Sunday's game, they all took their place in the starting lineup and so this day of rest was certainly on the horizon. There is no clear pickup here, although Tyler Johnson, Chris Chiozza and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot make the most sense.

    Chris Chiozza logged 29 minutes off the bench on Friday, finishing with 14 points (5-for-12 FG, 2-for-5 3PT), six rebounds, four assists and a block as the Nets clinched a playoff spot with the win.

    Chiozza has played a lot in Orlando during the Nets' five games there; something that would obviously not be the case if the Nets were even close to healthy. Regardless, Chiozza has made a decent impression with his opportunity. He's lobbying for a roster spot in 2020-21.

  • Jamal Crawford
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Jamal Crawford (left hamstring strain) will not be available for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

    Crawford only lasted six minutes against the Bucks on Tuesday before suffering the injury. Chris Chiozza would end up playing 31 minutes off the bench in that one, but it's a murky situation for the Nets given their depleted roster.

    Chris Chiozza put up his first career double-double in 31 minutes on Tuesday, amassing 10 points, 10 assists and three rebounds.

    Chiozza played a team-high 31 minutes off the bench, flashing his elite passing skills on his way to a double-double. With both Joe Harris (rest) and Caris LeVert (rest) watching on from the sidelines, Chiozza gave us a glimpse of what he could be capable of. He has now recorded 26 points and 19 assists over the first three seeding games and makes for a sneaky pickup if you need dimes in a hurry.

  • Tyler Johnson
    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Tyler Johnson was bumped up to the starting lineup on Sunday afternoon but struggled, scoring two points on 0-for-7 shooting with six rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block.

    Johnson played 29 minutes and did check the other non-scoring boxes, so it wasn't a total bust. It is worth pointing out that he was outplayed by the man he replaced in the starting five, Chris Chiozza, who produced 14 points (6-for-8 FG), six assists and two threes in 21 minutes off the bench. Neither is a particularly reliable fantasy option right now but both should be rostered in most resumption formats.

  • Tyler Johnson
    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Tyler Johnson will replace Chris Chiozza in the Nets' starting lineup on Sunday.

    Johnson played decently on Friday, scoring 11 points with four assists and a 3-pointer. Chiozza was invisible in the starting lineup and the Nets got thumped, so it's not surprising to see Jacque Vaughn make a quick change. Johnson's worth scooping up in resumption leagues.

    With both Kyrie Irving and Spencer Dinwiddie sitting out the NBA restart, Chris Chiozza started at point guard for the Nets on Friday but put up a disappointing effort with two points on 1-of-6 shooting, one rebound and three assists in 17 minutes.

    Chiozza was looking mildly promising in the Nets' scrimmages, but he clearly fell flat tonight when the game really mattered. He's not worth holding in fantasy, so look elsewhere if you're in need of a boost in assists.

    Chris Chiozza and Lance Thomas are set to join Jarrett Allen, Caris LeVert and Joe Harris in the starting lineup on Friday as they face the Magic.

    Chiozza will earn his first NBA start of his career in his second season and could see plenty of opportunity during the resumption season. He is definitely worth a look for resumption leagues and makes for an intriguing DFS play if his price is low enough. Thomas, a nine-year veteran, will also draw the start but has more competition up front with Rodions Kurucs, Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot, Donta Hall and Dzanan Musa.
