  • Shabazz Napier - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Shabazz Napier had 20 points, five rebounds, five assists and six threes in Wednesday's finale against the Heat.

    Napier's first season with the Nets looks similar to his previous one with the Blazers. He provided top-235 value per-game, but his real value comes from his ability to put up big numbers like he did tonight when high-usage guards are out of the lineup. Unless you're in a very deep league, Napier is best forgotten fantasy-wise until a starting guard goes down.

    Shabazz Napier (illness) is expected back for Friday's game against Lakers on Friday.

    Napier will return to a reserve role, where there is not much fantasy value.

  • Shabazz Napier - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Shabazz Napier (illness) will not play on Tuesday night.

    Napier has been in and out of the lineup with a hamstring injury lately, so at least it's not that. He's not going to hold fantasy value unless D'Angelo Russell or Spencer Dinwiddie gets hurt.

  • Shabazz Napier - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Shabazz Napier (right hamstring tightness) is not on the injury report for Sunday's game against the Clippers.

    Napier was ruled out on Saturday but should return after the one-game absence. There are no guarantees that he'll be in the rotation, however.

  • Shabazz Napier - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Shabazz Napier (right hamstring tightness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Jazz.

    Napier was initially probable, so this is a fairly surprising change. Napier has been largely out of the rotation with Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert back, however, so most fantasy owners won't be affected in any way here.

  • DeMarre Carroll - F - Brooklyn Nets

    DeMarre Carroll (hyperextended left knee), Shabazz Napier (tight right hamstring) and Treveon Graham (back soreness) are all probable for Saturday’s game vs. the Jazz.

    All can be left on the wire in most formats.

    Shabazz Napier (hamstring) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Napier has been buried in the rotation since the return of Spencer Dinwiddie, playing only 10.6 mpg over the last two weeks. Napier can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

  • Shabazz Napier - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Shabazz Napier (personal) is expected to return to the Nets in time for Monday's game.

    Napier has been at the very edge of the rotation since Spencer Dinwiddie returned so there's no need to monitor his status for fantasy. We hope that everything is okay with his family.

    Shabazz Napier (personal) will not be with the team for Saturday’s game vs. the Hawks.

    Since Spencer Dinwiddie has returned from injury, Napier has basically been out of the rotation and can be left on the wire. Treveon Graham (back soreness) will also miss Saturday’s contest.

  • Shabazz Napier - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Shabazz Napier scored 22 points on 7-of-14 from the field and 7-of-7 from the line on Wednesday night, adding little else with one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes off the bench.

    Napier was one of only three Nets to hit double figures tonight and only saw this much action because Brooklyn was out of it in the third quarter. He's not a fantasy option unless one of the Nets' backcourt starters goes down.

  • Caris LeVert - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Caris LeVert (dislocated right foot) played his first game since November 12 and finished Friday’s loss to the Bulls with 11 points (no 3s) five steals, four assists and zero turnovers in 15 minutes off the bench.

    It was fantastic to see LeVert after initially being feared to have a season-ending injury. He’ll have to work his way into more minutes and Spencer Dinwiddie (thumb) will be back at some point but with all his upside, he shouldn’t be on any waiver wires. Hopefully it won’t be too long before he’s back to his top-85 ways. Meanwhile, Shabazz Napier, who had been playing well, got only 12 minutes off the bench and missed all five of his shots; his short run of magic looks like it’s just ended.

  • Shabazz Napier - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Shabazz Napier started on Monday against the Bucks and scored 15 points on 4-of-15 shooting with four rebounds, four assists and two steals.

    Napier drew the start in place of the injured Joe Harris (sore right hip) and did what he's been doing since Spencer Dinwiddie (left thumb) went down. He threw up 15 shots in 28 minutes and was only second to D'Angelo Russell in usage. Somehow he went 0-for-10 from deep which destroyed his shooting line but we don't expect him to be efficient anyways.

    Shabazz Napier will start in place of Joe Harris (sore right hip) on Monday night against the Bucks.

    Napier will move off his typical point guard position but still makes for a nice fantasy play for as long as Spencer Dinwiddie is out. DeMarre Carroll and Treveon Graham should also pick up some extra minutes on the wings as Harris' absence opens up lots of time for others to absorb.

  • Shabazz Napier - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Shabazz Napier logged 26 minutes in Saturday's 89-102 loss to the Magic and chipped in 15 points on 5-of-13 shooting with two rebounds, three assists, three triples and a steal.

    Napier has been posting top-130 value over the last two weeks, keeping him relevant for owners in standard leagues. He should continue to deliver solid production while Spencer Dinwiddie is on the mend.
