Kyrie Irving (personal) and DeAndre Jordan (finger) are not listed on the Nets injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against the Pistons.
Irving is ready to rock after missing Sunday's game against the Knicks to grieve. He's going to be playing with a heavy heart after losing a close friend and is someone to target in DFS lineups for his ability to blow up. DeAndre Jordan may get back into the starting lineup for this one as well.

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said on Tuesday that he isn't sure if Kyrie Irving (personal) will play against the Pistons on Wednesday, but the team is 'optimistic' that he will be out there after he returned to practice on Tuesday.
Keep tabs on the situation as more information rolls in. If Irving sits this one out, Spencer Dinwiddie would start at PG again and maintain peak usage.

Kyrie Irving (personal) will not play in Sunday's game against the Knicks.
Coach Kenny Atkinson shared that one of his players was extremely close with Kobe Bryant and ruled Irving out in the same breath. We send our best wishes to Irving as this news must be hitting him harder than most. Spencer Dinwiddie will get another start, although the Nets' plan is still to bring him off the bench whenever Irving returns to the lineup.

Kyrie Irving was simply marvelous in Saturday's 121-111 win over the Pistons, dropping 45 points with six rebounds, seven assists and only one turnover.
Irving is providing patient fantasy owners first-round value, especially with nights like this. The 45 points are great, as he shot 15-of-30 from the field, but he also went a perfect 10-of-10 from the charity stripe to go along with just one turnover. It would have been a near-perfect game had he gotten a steal or two, but you would be hard pressed to find a fantasy owner who was not thrilled to see this stat line.

Joe Harris scored 16 points in Saturday's win over the Pistons, chipping in six rebounds, two assists and four three-pointers.
After averaging nearly 16 points a game in December, Harris is only averaging 11 points a game in January. As a result of teammate Kyrie Irving's return, Harris is not only taking less shots per game but he is failing to hit on the shot that he makes. His other countable stats have held steady so owners should be patient as he refinds his shooting touch.
January 25, 2020, 10:45 pmSpencer DinwiddiePG, Brooklyn Nets
Spencer Dinwiddie moved back to the bench in Saturday's win over the Pistons, chipping in 10 points, four rebounds, five assists and a steal.
Teammate Garrett Temple drew the start in tonight's game, though Dinwiddie ended up playing more time, registering 37 minutes in overtime action. The sell-high window may be closed for Dinwiddie, but he still offers some value in a sixth-man role.

Spencer Dinwiddie played 30 minutes on Thursday night, scoring seven points, grabbing seven boards and dishing out 13 assists.
Dinwiddie started next to Kyrie Irving in this contest. He had a good run holding down the fort when Irving was out, but Kyrie will eat into his value and usage, making Dinwiddie more of a late-round play for scoring and assists.

Kyrie Irving (hamstring) led the Nets with 20 points on Thursday to go along with four assists and three triples.
It wasn't actually that impressive of an outing for Irving in 33 minutes. The Nets got caved in with Irving on the floor to the tune of a -26. Irving should put up more impressive lines going forward.
January 23, 2020, 1:36 pmKyrie IrvingPG, Brooklyn Nets
Kyrie Irving (hamstring) is being listed as available for Thursday's matchup with the Lakers.
Irving is good to go against in this primetime game against former teammate LeBron James. With three games in four nights, Irving may sit out one game of the upcoming Nets' back-to-back this weekend. It will be a situation to monitor. Fire up Irving as normal for this one.

Kyrie Irving (hamstring) is considered probable for Thursday's game.
Irving missed Monday's contest but is likely to face the Lakers. He has been a force during his first 15 games with the Nets. So far, Irving is averaging 26.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 6.9 assists.

Kyrie Irving was a late scratch on Monday with a tight hamstring after not appearing on the initial injury report, but Kenny Atkinson admitted that the issue has been nagging his point guard for a few days.
Playing it safe with Irving might be wise, considering his health history. He has missed 26 games this season with a shoulder impingement and now the hamstring. It goes without saying that Spencer Dinwiddie should be owned in all formats and we just hope that Irving will be back sooner than later.

Kyrie Irving (hamstring) has been downgraded to out for Monday's game against the Sixers.
Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert will take on more minutes and responsibility with Irving out. It's been a hard year to own Irving, who has been a monster producer when healthy, but that has rarely been the case this season. It is not certain at this moment how much time Irving will miss. We will continue to monitor the situation.
