DeAndre Jordan has announced that he will not join the Nets when the season resumes again.
Jordan said that he knew he had COVID-19 last night, but reaffirmed with another test today. Jordan's minutes were split with Jarrett Allen, but him sitting out may actually lead to a better rotation for the Nets and it's definitely great for Allen to shine a bit more.

Nicolas Claxton underwent arthoscopic labrum repair surgery on Wednesday and will not join the Nets in Orlando when the season resumes.
Claxton is expected to make a full recovery and be ready for training camp next season. The Nets are not playing for a title this season, so it makes sense to take care of their young player so he can be ready for next season. Claxton only appeared in 15 games this season, averaging 4.4 points and 2.9 rebounds on 56 percent shooting from the field in 12.5 minutes per game. He will struggle to find consistent minutes on the Nets next season with Jarrett Allen and DeAndre Jordan ahead of him in the rotation. Claxton is mobile for a big man and could potentially be a dynamic defender on the perimeter. He has long-term upside and should be watched from a distance in dynasty leagues. If you are rebuilding in 16-team leagues he might be worth picking up to see if he shows some flashes next season.

Jarrett Allen was not much to look at in his 21 minutes off the bench on Tuesday, recording just three points (1-of-2 FG, 1-of-4 FT) with seven rebounds, two steals and one block.
It's a sad state of affairs for Allen owners right now. The move to the bench has not been kind to his fantasy value at all. He's now a drop candidate in standard leagues and a hold in 16 to 18-teamers or deeper.

DeAndre Jordan moved into the starting lineup on Sunday and produced 11 points, 15 rebounds, four assists and three blocks in 29 minutes.
The politicking begins, as this was Jacque Vaughn's first change as Brooklyn's new head coach. It's been reported that Jordan's playing time was an issue among some of the Nets (any guesses on who DJ's good buddies are?), so Jordan got promoted today. He should be able to flirt with middle-round value if he gets near 30 mpg going forward, while Jarrett Allen looks to be in tough. Allen had 11 points, six rebounds and a block in 19 minutes but is looking like a late-round option and glorified blocks specialist if this is his new normal.

Jarrett Allen mustered up just six points and nine rebounds on Wednesday nights.
Allen's rough month continues and tonight he got bullied by the burly Grizzlies frontline. He's been able to keep the rebounds coming in and is still on pace for personal bests in boards and FG%, but right now Allen can be plopped onto benches in standard leagues. He's only a top-200 guy in the last two weeks.

Jarrett Allen was on the bench while the Nets came back to catch the Celtics and put the game away in overtime on Tuesday providing just eight points on 3-of-8 shooting and 10 rebounds in 18 minutes.
Allen’s production has been lacking for the last month or so, coinciding with a drop in minutes. He’s fine to hold if you need the rebounds and field goal percentage he brings. However, Allen has been outside the top-165 for the last month, as his blocks have been below average among centers and his free throw percentage has dropped to punt-level territory. With Allen sitting, it was DeAndre Jordan helping with the comeback, totaling eight points (3-of-4 FGs), 15 rebounds, one assist and one block in 35 minutes.

Jarrett Allen was aggressive on the offensive end of the floor on Saturday, recording 17 points on 7-of-8 shooting with 11 rebounds but failed to record an assist, a steal nor a block.
Allen really needs to find a way to put it all together. He's been a gem to own thanks to some flashes in some parts of the season, but those have been interspersed with hollow, mediocre lines (much worse than tonight). So far, inconsistency has been his biggest bane as a fantasy asset in 2019-20.

Jarrett Allen made all eight of his shot attempts from the field to finish Monday's game with 16 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks with zero turnovers.
This was by far Allen's best line in about two weeks. He's been getting outshined by DeAndre Jordan (six points, eight rebounds, two steals) lately, but tonight's gem puts Allen right back onto the standard-league map. Easily.

DeAndre Jordan put up another double-double on Thursday night to finish with 14 points and 15 boards in 37 minutes.
Jordan took advantage of Jarrett Allen's sheer ineffectiveness in this game. Allen was scoreless with two boards in 13 minutes before being benched at halftime. Jordan isn't going to get this kind of run every night, but he's still a great source of rebounds at the very least.

Jarrett Allen double-doubled on Wednesday with 10 points on 3-of-6 shooting and 13 rebounds in 20 minutes.
DeAndre Jordan scored seven points with 10 rebounds in 23 minutes and has now played more minutes than Allen in four straight games. It is close to a 50-50 split in minutes for the two centers over the past two weeks and both players are ranked just outside the top-100 during that stretch with Jordan having the slight edge. Allen has the higher upside and is the preferable option, which makes him a hold in standard leagues while Jordan is better suited for 14-team leagues.

DeAndre Jordan double-doubled on Saturday with 15 points (6-of-10 from the field), 14 rebounds and three blocks in 29 minutes off the bench.
Jordan outplayed Jarrett Allen (three points and six rebounds in 19 minutes) but Allen is still the center to own in Brooklyn. Jordan is a late-round option in 14-team leagues for big man stats.

Jarrett Allen scored eight points on 4-of-7 shooting to go with eight rebounds, three dimes and two blocks in 23 minutes on Monday.
Allen logged 23 minutes compared to DeAndre Jordan's 23 (eight points, nine rebounds and five assists). Jordan shouldn't be owned in standard leagues while Allen's upside will be capped as long as Jordan is soaking minutes at the center spot. It's not a great spot to be in for Allen, but he's producing enough in limited minutes to ease his owners' frustrations.

Jarrett Allen had himself a good game on Saturday night, notching 13 points on 5-of-6 FGs and 3-of-7 FTs, plus 15 rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 27 minutes.
This is Allen's 22nd double-double this season and he's been overall a better contributor in fantasy despite his ups and downs. DeAndre Jordan came off the bench with eight points, 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in 21 minutes. Both players are worth owning, with Allen being the preferred big man to take to the fantasy playoffs.

Jarret Allen stuffed that stat sheet in Wednesday's 115-125 win over the Pistons, ending with 11 points, six rebounds, two assists, a steal and four blocks.
Allen and DeAndre Jordan split time at C, but Allen got the start and a slight edge in minutes ending with 28 minutes to Jordan's 21. Both had strong nights, but Jarrett Allen was more effective on offense as Jordan was held to four points with eight rebounds, two assists and two blocks of his own. Allen is a strong mid-round fantasy option at this point, and could have a promising future in dynasty leagues.
January 28, 2020, 2:11 pmDeAndre JordanC, 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.
