Brook Lopez led the Nets with 17 points, 14 rebounds, two steals and zero turnovers in 36 minutes on Sunday, hitting 6-of-7 field goals and 5-of-6 free throws.
BroLo averaged 19.7 points and 9.2 rebounds after the All-Star break and he'll need to have a huge series for Brooklyn to hang with the top-seeded Hawks. His offense was even more critical tonight with backup center Mason Plumlee going scoreless without any field goal attempts in 12 minutes. Apr 19 - 8:28 PM

Brook Lopez played well in a win over the Magic on Wednesday, scoring 14 points with seven boards, one assist, four steals and three blocks.

The Nets won themselves the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference tonight, but they don't have time to celebrate as they will be taking on the Hawks in the first round on Sunday. Joe Johnson also did his part with 16 points, seven boards, six assists and two 3-pointers, while Thaddeus Young contributed 16 points, nine boards, three assists, two steals and one block.
Apr 16 - 1:01 AM

Brook Lopez was held in check vs. the Bucks, finishing Sunday's road loss with 12 points (3-of-8 FGs, 6-of-7 FTs), 10 rebounds, two steals and one block.

He only turned the ball over once in 31 minutes and this isn't a total wash for Lopez's fantasy owners. The Bucks have been very stingy against opposing centers over their past 10 games, allowing a mere 16.5 points on 47.4 percent shooting (third-lowest in the NBA), so it's not shocking to see BroLo struggle. He gets another tough matchup vs. Chicago on Monday.
Apr 12 - 5:58 PM

Brook Lopez scored 26 points with nine rebounds, one steal, one block and no turnovers in 32 minutes against the Wizards during an easy 117-80 victory.

He just keeps putting up big lines. In his last 13 games, Lopez averaged 26.2 points, 9.6 boards, 0.9 assists, 2.4 blocks and 0.6 steals. Lopez and the Nets are on the brink of clinching a postseason berth and have a big game in Milwaukee on Sunday.
Apr 10 - 11:00 PM

Brook Lopez hit 8-of-17 shots and 10-of-10 free throws for 26 points, 10 rebounds, a steal and three blocks in Wednesday's loss to the Hawks.

Bro-Lo has been on a tear, averaging 23.4 points, 9.8 rebounds and 2.0 blocks over his last five games, and might be carrying fantasy teams right now. Keep running him out there as long as he's playing for the Nets. Brooklyn is fighting for a spot in the postseason, so there's a good chance Bro-Lo keeps it going through the end of the season.
Apr 8 - 11:11 PM

Brook Lopez continued his magnificent run on the stat sheet during a 106-96 win over the Blazers on Monday, scoring 32 points with nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.

The Nets have gone 8-1 in their last nine games and have won five straight at home, so they're suddenly starting to look like a playoff team at the right time. As for Brook, he has six 30-point games in his last 11 games and only Russell Westbrook and James Harden have more 30-point games since Mar. 1. After he looked shot in the 2014 part of this season, Lopez is earning himself some serious money this offseason.
Apr 6 - 9:50 PM

Brook Lopez scored 30 points with 17 boards, two assists, one steal and one block in 44 minutes against the Raptors on Friday.

He's been one of the most productive players since the break and is a big reason why the Nets are sitting in the seven spot. It's hard to imagine Lopez even logging 44 minutes and he didn't looked winded tonight either. His rebounds are also way up since Thaddeus Young arrived, which is probably even a bigger surprise than the high minute total. If you bought low just before the All-Star break, you are probably doing quite well in fantasy.
Apr 4 - 1:13 AM

Brook Lopez hit 9-of-15 shots for 18 points, seven rebounds and five blocks in Wednesday's win over the Knicks, and also hit a follow-up jumper with two seconds left to win the game.

The Eastern Conference Player of the Week last week came through with the points and blocks, and it seems silly to think that he used to come off the bench for this team. The Nets blew a 16-point lead against the NBA's doormat, but Bro-Lo was there to save the day.
Apr 1 - 11:14 PM

Brook Lopez lit up the Lakers for a game-high 30 points during Sunday's 107-99 home win, adding 11 boards, one assist and four blocks without any turnovers.

Lopez is averaging 29.2 points in his past six games, including Sunday's impressive 13-of-22 shooting display. He's helped Brooklyn earn a crucial three-game win streak with a playoff berth in the balance, and his fantasy owners must be thrilled that his best play of the year has arrived during fantasy playoffs. Lopez could exercise a $16.7 million player option this summer, but it stands to reason that he'll test the market as a free agent.
Mar 29 - 6:01 PM

If Brook Lopez opts out of his contract this summer and becomes an unrestricted free agent, the Denver Nuggets could pursue him again.

The Nuggets tried to obtain Lopez before the trade deadline, but the Nets' asking price was too high and they weren't willing to absorb JaVale McGee's contract. Lopez has certainly boosted his stock this season and he will be in a for a huge payday as long as he avoids injury. This will be a story that we will monitor very closely in the offseason, but Jusuf Nurkic's upside next season would be limited if Lopez came to town.

Brook Lopez took advantage of the poor defense (and the sore knee) of Al Jefferson and went off for 34 points, 10 rebounds, two steals and three blocks in Wednesday's win over Charlotte.

The Hornets needed this game, but Bro-Lo was just too much. It wasn't a season high, nor was it even his best game of the season, which came on Jan. 30. But he's cooking right now, scoring 31 or more in three of his last four games, while averaging 26.6 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.8 blocks on 63 percent shooting over his last five - just in time for the playoffs. It doesn't seem right that the Bro-Lo owner is likely cruising through the playoffs, but he's playing well enough to carry teams right now.
Mar 25 - 11:12 PM

Brook Lopez said he's undecided about exercising his $16.7 million player option for next season.

It's an interesting decision for the big man since he has a history of foot and ankle injuries and is unlikely to command that annual figure on the open market, but he would have no problem getting a multi-year commitment in free agency. If he does opt out, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him land elsewhere.
Mar 23 - 10:48 AM

Brook Lopez scored 26 points against the Pacers on Saturday with four rebounds and four blocks in 31 minutes.

He didn't have an 18-board game like Friday, but there has been an upward trend in his rebounds lately. According to the Nets' broadcast, Lopez said he's better on the glass with Thaddeus Young out there spacing the floor. Whatever it is, Lopez is playing great right now and is a must-start player.
Mar 21 - 9:57 PM

Brook Lopez turned in his best game of the season during a 129-127 triple-overtime win over the Bucks on Friday, scoring 32 points with 18 boards, two assists and five blocks in 42 minutes.

He's the first player this season to drop a 30-15 line with five blocks and his boards were a season high. Lopez was already fairly hot before this game, averaging 15.3 points, 8.7 boards, 1.4 blocks and 0.6 steals in his previous March games. The Nets do get a back-to-back road game in Indiana, so fantasy owners with an older Net on their roster might want to make sure their guy(s) are good to go.
Mar 21 - 12:56 AM

Brook Lopez grabbed 14 rebounds against the Heat on Wednesday with 15 points, one assist and one block in 33 minutes.

That's three double-doubles in his last four games, which is almost shocking based on some of his paltry rebounding numbers in his career. Lopez has put up big numbers after the break even before tonight, averaging 16.2 points, 8.8 boards, 1.4 blocks and 0.5 steals. He's a must-start player right now.
