Andray Blatche had 20 points and 12 rebounds in a rare start for the Nets on Wednesday, who appeared to be trying to lose recent games in order to draw the Raptors in Round 1 of the playoffs, instead of the Bulls.
Mission accomplished. Whatever the case, the starters were all rested and Blatche was finally allowed to have one of his better games in recent memory. Marcus Thornton also started and scored 20, while little-known guard Jorge Gutierrez started, and was the only other Net in double figures tonight with 13. The Nets haven't exactly looked great over the last few weeks, but then again, maybe they just weren't trying. The Raptors have surely taken notice at how things have gone down, and their first-round match up should be fun to watch. Apr 16 - 11:41 PM

Andray Blatche played only seven minutes in Sunday's home win vs. the Magic, scoring four points with one rebound.

Jason Kidd said before the game that he may shorten his rotation for the playoffs, excluding one of the Nets' centers, and tonight's game suggests that Blatche is low man on the totem pole below Kevin Garnett (19 minutes) and Mason Plumlee (26 minutes).
Apr 13 - 8:33 PM

Andray Blatche (flu) was a DNP-CD after being declared available prior to Friday's game.

Perhaps a report will trickle in that Blatche was too sick to play or simply being rested, but that's not a foregone conclusion at this point and we're taking him off the injury report. Until he can post a worthwhile line, he's droppable in all formats.
Apr 11 - 11:27 PM

Andray Blatche will return from his illness against the Hawks on Friday.

He missed two games due to the illness and it sounds like he's all better. Mason Plumlee has been outplaying Blatche and it's kept his minutes down to just 22.9 minutes per game since the break. He's a low-end play tonight in a decent matchup.
Apr 11 - 6:02 PM

Andray Blatche (illness) will not play against the Magic on Wednesday.

He was a game-time decision about 10 minutes prior to this update and he must not be feeling well at all. This will be his second game out of the lineup and the Nets will likely use plenty of Mirza Teletovic in the starting lineup. Mason Plumlee could also help out on the bench. Blatche should be considered questionable for Friday.
Apr 9 - 6:00 PM

Andray Blatche (illness) is a game-time call to face the Magic on Wednesday.

He is still under the weather and the team might hold him out. They are already without Paul Pierce at forward, so that means Mirza Teletovic could see a nice chunk of playing time. We'll let you know Blatche's availability as soon as it's available.
Apr 9 - 5:51 PM

Andray Blatche won't play on Tuesday due to an illness.

Like the news of Josh Smith's patella soreness, this came out of nowhere, and much too late for owners to do much about it. Why these types of issues aren't made public earlier remains a concern, especially when fantasy championships are on the line. With Kevin Garnett also out tonight, Mason Plumlee and Mirza Teletovic should be poised for good things tonight.
Apr 8 - 7:46 PM

Andray Blatche led the Nets' reserves on Sunday with 14 points on 7-of-11 shooting, six rebounds, two steals and two blocks in just 21 minutes of action.

Blatche also committed five of the Nets' 20 turnovers, but they used a big advantage behind the arc to pull away for a 114-99 victory. With Kevin Garnett's return from back spasms still somewhat up in the air, Blatche should continue to play solid minutes as a backup PF/C until further notice.
Mar 30 - 8:24 PM

Andray Blatche had just nine points and four rebounds in his 29 minutes off the bench on Monday, but he did manage to get two steals and a block while hitting 4-of-7 shots.

Blatche has been a mid-to-late round value over the last two weeks and his 0.8 turnovers per game over that span tilts favorably toward 9-cat formats. He's a bit of a roller coaster but playing in a less-than-competitive frontcourt that type of value should be owned in most formats.
Mar 10 - 11:04 PM

Andray Blatche played 26 minutes in Sunday’s win vs. Sacramento, but he scored only four points on 2-of-7 shooting with three rebounds, two assists and two turnovers.

Blatche didn't put up any defensive stats in what was a thoroughly disappointing stat line. His inconsistency may be outweighed by the Nets’ favorable rest-of-season schedule, especially while Kevin Garnett (back spasms) is out of commission and Mason Plumlee is struggling as a starter, so owners in need of a low-end big man should keep him on the radar.
Mar 9 - 8:42 PM

Andray Blatche played 28 minutes off the bench during Monday's 96-80 win over the Bulls, scoring 11 points with five boards, three assists and three steals.

His shooting line of 4-of-11 from the field isn't great, but the minutes serve as an endorsement that coach Jason Kidd is comfortable playing Blatche a nice chunk of minutes. He's had some conditioning issues in the past and perhaps he's been able to shake them. Fantasy owners can give him a look and hope he stays near the 30-minute mark.
Mar 3 - 11:39 PM

Andray Blatche played 30 minutes off the bench and hit 5-of-12 shots and 9-of-9 free throws for 19 points, 13 rebounds, two assists, three steals and a block on Saturday.

Mason Plumlee drew the start in the absence of Kevin Garnett (back), but Blatche got the minutes and production, as Plumlee played just 11 minutes. Blatche has had trouble getting consistent minutes from Jason Kidd, but may have helped his cause with tonight's performance. Keep an eye on him in case KG misses more time.
Mar 1 - 11:37 PM

Andray Blatche played just 14 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, finishing with three points and two rebounds on 1-of-6 shooting.

The game was a major blowout and Jason Kidd played 13 guys tonight. Only three of them scored in double digits and Deron Williams was the leading scorer with 12 points. There is nothing to learn from this one, but you can expect Blatche to bounce back. He had hit double digits in scoring in three straight games coming in, but the Nets threw in the towel shortly after tip off in the 124-80 loss.
Feb 27 - 2:47 AM

Andray Blatche had 14 points, eight rebounds and two steals on 6-of-9 shooting in 28 minutes off the bench on Saturday.

Blatche got popped in the nose, but played through it with some sort of tissue stopping the bleeding. He should be good to go in the next one, but watch for updates in case he suffered a broken nose tonight.
Feb 23 - 1:19 AM

The good version of Andray Blatche showed up in Utah on Wednesday night with 25 points, six boards, one assist, one steal and one block in 31 minutes.

He's been all over the place with his minutes, including a six-minute outing back on Feb. 9. Blatche has shown some major promise here and there, but the inconsistency makes him a tough player to own in standard formats. If you're thinking about picking him up, tonight's line shouldn't be the only factor.
