  • Tyler Johnson
    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Tyler Johnson played so well for the Nets that he may have earned himself another hefty pay day, but the team will only be able to add free agents by offering veteran’s minimum contracts, making his stay in Brooklyn a long shot.

    Johnson played very well since joining the Nets and he was one of the more efficient players in the Orlando bubble for Brooklyn, averaging 12.0 points, 3.0 assists and 3.0 rebounds, while playing scrappy defense and shooting a career-best 39 percent from downtown. The Nets though are capped out, having already $139 million in committed salaries for next season, and that doesn’t include Joe Harris who is a free agent. Johnson is still just 28 and he should be able to generate plenty of interest around the league, but unless he takes a pay cut it looks like he won’t be returning to the Nets.

  • Tyler Johnson
    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Tyler Johnson was inserted in the starting lineup for Joe Harris (personal) on Friday and was able to contribute in the scoring categories with little else.

    Johnson finished with 23 points on an efficient 8-of-15 from the field, going 5-of-9 from distance. He added one rebound, three assists and committed one turnover in his 24 minutes of playing time. Johnson could be in line for more shot attempts for as long as Harris is sidelined but there is no reason to believe that the Nets can extend their postseason run past Sunday's potential sweep in Game 4.

    Tyler Johnson will start in place of Joe Harris (personal) on Friday.

    Johnson has played 17 and 22 minutes over the first two games of this series, scoring 19 points on a combined 8-of-18 from the field with three 3-pointers. Losing Harris is a big blow to Brooklyn but DFS players might be able to get some cheap production out of it. Also look for the Nets to reach a little further into the guard rotation with Harris out, which means we might see some spot Jeremiah Martin minutes.

  • Joe Harris
    SF, Brooklyn Nets

    The Nets will be without Joe Harris (personal) and Jamal Crawford (left hamstring strain) for Games 3 and 4 on Friday and Sunday respectively.

    Harris left the campus yesterday for a non-medical personal matter while Crawford has played in less than 10 minutes due to his hamstring injury. Harris' departure is a big hit for a feisty Nets squad as he was one of their most reliable shooters. Expect more minutes to be available for Tyler Johnson and Garrett Temple. The Nets will have to win a game in order for either player to have a chance at returning, something that seems extremely difficult against the defending Champs.

  • Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot replaced Rodions Kurucs in the starting lineup in Game 2 after an impressive performance in the series opener and had another solid game on Wednesday, finishing with 17 points (6-of-16) with two rebounds, one steal, three treys and two turnovers in 36 minutes.

    TLC didn't shoot the ball as well as he did in Game 1 but far outperformed Kurucs for the second straight game. The Nets had an eight-man rotation in Game 2 with Tyler Johnson and Chris Chiozza being the other two players who came in off the bench. Chiozza had four assists in 12 minutes while Johnson pitched in with 12 points, three rebounds, two assists, one block, two 3-pointers and one turnover in 23 minutes. TLC has cemented himself as one of the key rotation players for the remainder of the postseason while Johnson is in the sixth-man role. Kurucs has been very disappointing and has clearly lost his job to TLC.

  • Caris LeVert
    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Caris LeVert (left thigh contusion), Joe Harris (left groin contusion) and Jarrett Allen (left ankle sprain) will all miss Tuesday's game vs. the Magic.

    All three players will continue to be managed leading into the playoffs. After initially being ruled out of Sunday's game, they all took their place in the starting lineup and so this day of rest was certainly on the horizon. There is no clear pickup here, although Tyler Johnson, Chris Chiozza and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot make the most sense.

  • Tyler Johnson
    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Tyler Johnson put up 21 points on 6-of-11 shooting in 30 minutes of action in a 129-120 win over the Clippers on Sunday.

    Johnson knocked down five triples and added four rebounds and one assist to the box score. He came up clutch and scored 13 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter. Johnson has gradually been getting better as the seeding games have progressed, so it is a good sign to see him put up this stellar performance. He is a good source of scoring and triples for deeper leagues.

    Tyler Johnson went for 14 points, three rebounds and two assists in 18 minutes of play in Friday's win over the Kings.

    Johnson shot 5-for-9 from the field and went 2-for-5 from deep — his best game shooting the ball in Orlando thus far. This was the fewest minutes Johnson has logged in a game since the restart but he also produced his largest scoring output on Friday. So go figure. He should continue to see moderate run on a depleted Nets squad.

    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Tyler Johnson started for the Nets on Wednesday but was unable to capitalize on the opportunity as he put up a lackluster performance with seven points, two rebounds, one 3-pointer and three assists.

    Johnson has been a huge disappointment for the NBA restart and has not stepped up despite the wide-open opportunities to shine given the team's injury woes. Leave him on the wire.

  • Tyler Johnson
    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Tyler Johnson was bumped up to the starting lineup on Sunday afternoon but struggled, scoring two points on 0-for-7 shooting with six rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block.

    Johnson played 29 minutes and did check the other non-scoring boxes, so it wasn't a total bust. It is worth pointing out that he was outplayed by the man he replaced in the starting five, Chris Chiozza, who produced 14 points (6-for-8 FG), six assists and two threes in 21 minutes off the bench. Neither is a particularly reliable fantasy option right now but both should be rostered in most resumption formats.

    Tyler Johnson will replace Chris Chiozza in the Nets' starting lineup on Sunday.

    Johnson played decently on Friday, scoring 11 points with four assists and a 3-pointer. Chiozza was invisible in the starting lineup and the Nets got thumped, so it's not surprising to see Jacque Vaughn make a quick change. Johnson's worth scooping up in resumption leagues.

    Tyler Johnson debuted for the Nets on Friday and quietly put up 11 points on 2-of-8 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs with one triple, two rebounds and four assists.

    Chris Chiozza was awful as the starting point guard, so don't be surprised to see Johnson chip away at those PG minutes once he gets into a better flow of things. Until then though, you can comfortably leave him on the wire.

    Tyler Johnson delivered 17 points (7-for-11 FG), two rebounds and three 3-pointers in 18 minutes of action on Saturday.

    Johnson sat out Brooklyn's first scrimmage but looked great today. There are a lot of unknowns with the Nets missing so many players from their usual rotation, but Johnson has a great opportunity in front of him and has the most established NBA track record among the team's backcourt options these days (besides Caris LeVert). It's not out of the question for Johnson to carve out a serious role for this shorthanded squad, which would put him in the mix as a potential late-round option in resumption leagues.

  • Jamal Crawford
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Jamal Crawford, Tyler Johnson, and Justin Anderson, all of whom the Nets signed within the last calendar month, will not participate in Wedneday's scrimmage vs. the Pelicans.

    It's somewhat interesting that Johnson, who signed in late-June, won't be taking the floor but Crawford and Anderson only signed recently. The Nets are badly ravaged by injuries as they try prepare for the NBA's return, and these three guys very likely wouldn't be on the roster if they were at full strength.

    Tyler Johnson has cleared quarantine and was able to practice with the Nets.

    Johnson is an iffy flier choice for resumption leagues, but given how gutted the Nets roster is, it wouldn't be too surprising to see him pop up with some low-end value over the last eight games of the season.
