    Due to a left hamstring injury, Raul Neto will not suit up vs. the Wizards on Friday.

    It is a tough break for Neto as he tries to compete for minutes with Trey Burke, but he is unlikely to hold much fantasy relevance either way. He was questionable originally so he may still be ready for the regular season.

    Raul Neto (left hamstring) is questionable for Friday's preseason game.

    Neto is competing with Trey Burke for the backup PG work in Philly, so this isn't good timing. Neither player holds fantasy value outside of serving as Ben Simmons' handcuff in extremely deep leagues.

    There was plenty of praise for Trey Burke after his first practice with the Sixers on Tuesday.

    Ben Simmons said Burke was "amazing today" while Bruce Brown went with "really good today". Burke and Raul Neto are competing for the backup point guard role, and it would appear that Burke may have jumped out in front of Neto who did some good things too, according to Brown. On a team with an irregular point guard in Simmons, the player that wins the role may be used as more than a traditional backup and provide some end-of-roster fantasy value. Keep an eye on this battle.

    Raul Neto could end up being Ben Simmons' backup to begin the 2019-20 season.

    Right now, the two candidates to be the backup to starter Ben Simmons are Neto and former two-way player Shake Milton, a second-year combo guard who earned a lot of minutes at the point in the NBA Summer League. Neto started 53 of the 81 games in which he appeared as a rookie in 2015-16, but only started once over the past three seasons. He has averages of 4.8 points, 1.9 assists and 37.7 percent shooting from 3-point range in 14.2 minutes and it’s highly unlikely that he gains fantasy value even if he earns the backup job.

  • James Ennis III
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    The Sixers have officially signed James Ennis and Raul Neto.

    Ennis returns on a two-year, $4.1 million deal but has a player option on the second season. He'll slot into the second unit, where he emerged as a quality role player for Philly last season. Neto should give the Sixers guard depth and can capably fill 10-15 mpg whenever the team needs him. Ennis is closer to fantasy value than Neto, but neither is more than a deep-league target.

    Raul Neto and the Sixers have agreed to a one-year, veteran's minimum deal per Shams Charania.

    Neto should step into T.J. McConnell's role for Philly and will give them a quality, if uninspiring, guy to keep things in order when Ben Simmons is off the floor.

    The Jazz have officially waived Raul Neto.

    Neto was a solid insurance policy for the Jazz but they needed to open up some salary room to complete the Mike Conley trade. Neto should land as a third-string point guard somewhere.

    The Jazz are reportedly planning to waive Raul Neto in order to complete the Mike Conley trade.

    Neto functioned as the team's third point guard last season but was elevated by yet another injury to Dante Exum. He shouldn't have issues finding a new NBA home as a depth player, but Utah will need Exum to stay on the court this season.

    Raul Neto (left ankle soreness) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Rockets.

    With benches shrinking in the playoffs and Ricky Rubio probable, Neto likely won't see the court too much.

    G, Utah Jazz

    Ricky Rubio (left quad contusion) went through portions of Friday’s practice as did Raul Neto (ankle).

    Rubio missed the last three games due to the quad injury and has been battling with this issue for much of the season. It’s good to see him participating in practice as the Jazz will need him as close to 100 percent as possible as they prepare for a tough matchup with the Rockets starting on Sunday. If he can’t play, look for Royce O’Neale to extended run defending James Harden.

    Raul Neto dealt with a myriad of injuries in 2018-19 but was mostly hampered by a groin strain, limiting him to play in just 37 games with value in the top-350 range in 8/9-cat.

    Neto proved to be a serviceable fill-in starter for Ricky Rubio for a brief time while the Spaniard was sidelined. However, his deep-league value would be short-lived as Neto ended going down with hamstring tightness of his own. Neto ends 2018-19 with averages of 5.3 points, 2.5 assists on .460 shooting in 12.8 minutes per game.

    Raul Neto (left ankle soreness) is out for Wednesday's game against the Clippers.

    With Rubio, Exum and Neto all out for the season finale, the Jazz will likely run their offense through Joe Ingles and Royce O'Neale. The Jazz are looking towards the playoffs so they would like for their injured guys to get a few extra days rest.

    Raul Neto (left ankle soreness) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.

    Neto will miss his third straight game. The Jazz also play on Wednesday, so stay tuned for Neto's status for that game if you're hunting for assists as Ricky Rubio is likely to miss that game.
