  • Shabazz Napier - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Shabazz Napier made the most of his 15 minutes off the Nets' bench on Friday and dropped 16 points, three triples, two rebounds, one assist and one steal.

    This is the second game Napier has been allotted 15 minutes and he's looking quite impressive. He's worth a look only in very leagues at the moment but that could change if his role in the Nets rotation gets larger. Spencer Dinwiddie had 11 points, three treys, five dimes, a steal and two blocks in 29 minutes, so Napier is not that big of a threat just yet.

    Shabazz Napier tallied eight points in 14 minutes off the bench in his first game of the season and Nets debut on Wednesday in a win over the Cavs.

    Napier will not have fantasy relevance this season as he joined a team with a crowded backcourt of D'Angelo Russell, Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert who will all be getting minutes ahead of him. However, he should play 10 or so minutes a night and be a role player for the Nets.

    Shabazz Napier (hamstring) will play Wednesday.

    Napier is going to struggle getting minutes behind both D'Angelo Russell and Spencer Dinwiddie, who should not see any decrease in playing time. Napier can be left on the waiver wire.

  • Shabazz Napier - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Shabazz Napier (hamstring) will miss Wednesday's season opener against the Pistons.

    Even when healthy Napier is likely only going to see garbage time minutes. The injury shouldn't affect D'Angelo Russell or Spencer Dinwiddie and they both need to be owned.

    Shabazz Napier sat out Thursday's practice.

    Napier's strained hamstring will cost him the entire preseason, opening up a nice chunk of minutes in a crowded Nets backcourt. He's not a great bet for fantasy value, even in deep leagues.

  • Shabazz Napier - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Shabazz Napier has been ruled out of Monday's game.

    Napier's strained right hamstring has sidelined him for the whole preseason. At this point we'd be shocked if Napier returned for the regular season opener. The Nets have a wealth of backcourt options but the big winners here might be Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert — Dinwiddie for the added responsibility and LeVert for the extra chances at backup point guard work.

  • Shabazz Napier - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Shabazz Napier is out for Wednesday's game due to a right hamstring strain.

    Hamstring strains are never easy to fully return from, especially when working with a new team. As of right now, Napier is the third point guard and does not need to be drafted.

  • Shabazz Napier - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Shabazz Napier remained out of practice Monday due to a hamstring injury.

    Napier pulled his hamstring in last Wednesday's practice and was not given a timetable when it happened. There is a chance his absence leaks into the regular season. He does not need to be drafted right now and is losing valuable reps with his new team.

  • Shabazz Napier - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Shabazz Napier pulled his hamstring in Wednesday's practice and is without a timetable to return.

    Napier looks to be the top backup point guard option, so if he has to miss any time it would provide a little breathing room for Spencer Dinwiddie, D'Angelo Russell and even Caris LeVert. The Nets have a deep rotation so if Bazz is sidelined into the regular season we'd likely see his potential minutes spread across any number of players rather than just one guy.
