Thaddeus Young has been shut down for the remainder of the season, joining Brook Lopez.
The Nets don't have anything left to play for, but it should be noted that Young is still healthy. The Nets want to get an extended look at the rest of their roster, so Thomas Robinson and Chris McCullough should see a bump in minutes at the four moving forward. Robinson needs to be added everywhere for his excellent rebounding numbers. Apr 3 - 11:21 AM

Thaddeus Young (rest) will not play on Friday against the Knicks.

It'll be the second rest day in his last three games. Young should be back for Sunday's game against the Pelicans. Thomas Robinson will play most of the minutes at center while Chris McCullough should step up, too.
Apr 1 - 6:07 PM

Thaddeus Young scored 18 points with eight rebounds, one assist and five turnovers in 28 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.

His 18 shots from the field are the most he's had since a 40-minute effort back on Mar. 11. Young does have a chance to rest on Friday, so his fantasy owners will want to make sure he's good to go.
Mar 31 - 10:24 PM

Thaddeus Young is in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Cavs.

Young was rested on Tuesday, but he was never expected to miss Thursday's game. Shane Larkin, Wayne Ellington, Boban Bogdanovic and Henry Sims will join Young in the starting five. Go ahead and get him active, as he'll likely be extremely involved offensively with Brook Lopez (rest) taking the night off.

Thaddeus Young (rest) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Magic.

Thomas Robinson will see some increased opportunity tonight with Young unavailable, and with a favorable matchup against the Magic, he'll be someone to consider as a streamer option or punt play in DFS. Young should return to action Thursday vs. the Cavs. Daily Slant: When Young rested back on March 5 against Minnesota, Thomas Robinson started and played 40 minutes (18pts, 17reb, 5ast, 4stl). While he almost certainly won't have similar success tonight (Brook Lopez also missed that game), he and Chris McCullough should both see fairly meaningful time at PF. Robinson hasn't played in any of the past three games (Willie Reid has sat for the last four), so there is considerable risk in rostering any of the Nets backup bigs. Robinson has the highest ceiling of the group and is a viable GPP target, while Lopez's value also shoots up.
Mar 29 - 5:35 PM

Thaddeus Young made 10-of-12 from the field for 20 points against the Heat during a 110-99 loss on Monday, adding nine rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block.

He made his first 10 shots from the field in a terrific start to his four-game week. Although, the Nets certainly could rest Young on Tuesday in Orlando, Thursday in Cleveland or Friday in New York. He'll flirt with top-50 value most nights, but his owners will definitely have to make sure he's good to go.
Mar 28 - 10:01 PM

Thaddeus Young hit just 5-of-12 shots and committed six turnovers for 10 points and eight rebounds in Tuesday's loss to the Hornets.

Young went off for 24 points on Saturday after racking up double-doubles in three straight games, but never got it going tonight. He didn't play well early tonight and turned the ball over a lot, so he didn't see his normal allotment of minutes. He should bounce back, but keep in mind the Nets have nothing left to play for, and Young's been in the league for a long time.
Mar 22 - 10:14 PM

Thaddeus Young scored 24 points during a 115-103 loss to the Pistons on Saturday, adding nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks in 26 minutes.

He snapped his three-game double-double streak in this loss. Young's rebounding has been the story all season with his 9.2 per game destroying his previous career high of 7.5 back in 2012-13. Brook Lopez (virus) did not play in this game, so that explains the above-average point total. Young should be an early-round player going forward.
Mar 19 - 10:12 PM

Thaddeus Young came through with 14 points, 16 rebounds, two steals and three blocks in Tuesday's easy win over the Sixers.

He torched his former team for a nice line and is heating up again, recording double-doubles in each of his last two games. He's averaging 16.5 points, 9.8 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.0 blocks over his last four, so just keep rolling him out there.
Mar 15 - 10:41 PM

Thaddeus Young scored 21 points during a 95-89 loss to the 76ers on Friday with nine rebounds, two assists and two steals in 40 minutes.

His production fell off in his previous March games, averaging 16.3 points, 8.0 boards, 1.7 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 turnovers in his previous three March games. Young should be a major force in fantasy as long as he doesn't get too many nights off like last Saturday.
Mar 11 - 10:05 PM

Thaddeus Young returned to action on Tuesday and had 14 points and four rebounds in 32 minutes of a loss to the Raptors.

He sat out the second game of a back-to-back on Saturday and while he wasn't at his best tonight, it should be safe to get him back in your lineup.
Mar 8 - 10:12 PM

Thaddeus Young (rest) will start Tuesday vs. the Raptors, sending Thomas Robinson back to the bench.

Young was withheld from the second game of a back-to-back set on Saturday, but he'll be back out there tonight. Robinson isn't worth consideration in most leagues while coming off the bench in Brooklyn.
Mar 8 - 6:53 PM

Thaddeus Young (rest) will not play against the Wolves on Saturday and Thomas Robinson will start.

No revenge game for Thad here and he'll be ready to go for the next one. With Young out, the Nets are going to have fill 37 minutes per game with a lot of boards and decent usage. Robinson is worth a look in DFS.
Mar 5 - 6:37 PM

Thaddeus Young scored 16 points on 8-of-16 shooting Friday, to go with five boards, two assists, two steals, one block and one turnover in 39 minutes.

Young has been cruising along as a third-round stud over the past month, owning averages of 15.3 points, 9.6 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 0.7 swats and 1.9 steals during that span on 51.6 percent shooting. There really isn't anyone on the roster to question him for playing time, so Young should have no trouble closing out the year as a top-50 asset with early-round upside.
Mar 5 - 12:30 AM

Thaddeus Young double-doubled vs. the Lakers on Tuesday with 19 points, 15 boards, two assists and one steal in 34 minutes.

The Lakers' interior defense is very weak, so it wasn't a surprise that Young went off. It should be noted that Young was icing his hand after Monday's game vs. the Clippers because he jammed his fingers, but that didn't appear to be an issue tonight and he should be fine moving forward.
