Brook Lopez scored 25 points with six rebounds in Monday's loss to the Wizards.
Bro-Lo shot an efficient 8-of-15 from the field with five assists, two triples and three blocks in 31 minutes. This was just his fourth game on the season in which he eclipsed the 30-minute mark, but the Nets are simply monitoring his workload in a rebuilding season. The Nets don't have a back-to-back set until Dec. 22, so his owners hopefully don't have to worry about any maintenance days for a couple weeks. Dec 5 - 11:15 PM

Brook Lopez made 3-of-17 from the field for 13 points against the Bucks on Saturday, adding four rebounds, six assists, three blocks, one steal and three 3-pointners in 29 minutes.

He didn't hit his first field goal until there were just 36 seconds left in the third quarter, but he did turn in a season high for dimes. Excluding the wild 43-minute outing in the overtime win over the Clippers on Tuesday, Lopez's minutes have consistently been around 30 this season with a 28 per game average. He's a solid hold and is flirting with early-round value.
Dec 3 - 7:57 PM

Brook Lopez has already set career-highs in 3-pointers made and attempted this season, and will continue to shoot from downtown.

Lopez is 22-of-60 from deep in 11 games this season, smashing his previous career-highs in makes and attempts. To put it in perspective, he had 31 attempts – and three baskets – in the first eight years of his career. "I’m surprised how he’s embraced it," coach Kenny Atkinson said. "Brook is all in. I like the buy-in, that’s just the type of guy he is. He works on it religiously. That’s another thing why we give him freedom." Thanks in part to the increase 3-point production, Lopez is off to a phenomenal start this season. He currently ranks 34th overall in nine-category fantasy leagues, one spot behind Blake Griffin and one ahead of DeMar DeRozan.

Brook Lopez scored 15 points during a 111-93 loss to the Bucks on Thursday, adding four rebounds, two assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers.

Those three treys get him to 35 on the season, which ties him with Anthony Morrow's 2011-12 season for the most 3-pointers made in the first 16 games of a season as a Net. Yes, this is the same Brook Lopez who had a grand total of three 3-pointers in his first eight years combined. The long ball in basketball is cooler than it is in baseball these days.

Brook Lopez hit 11-of-20 shots and four more 3-pointers for 27 points, eight rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in 43 minutes of Tuesday's thrilling double-OT win over the Clippers.

Bro-Lo's 3-point shooting is not only a thing of beauty, but one of the biggest surprises in the NBA this season. He's hit 32 of them so far and is averaging 19.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.4 3-pointers on 47 percent shooting over his last five games. To put it in perspective, he hit more 3-pointers in tonight's game than he had hit in his entire career prior to this season.
Nov 29 - 11:16 PM

Brook Lopez shot 5-of-15 from the field on Sunday, finishing with 17 points, seven rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

Lopez has a defensive rating of 110.8 this season, which is the 14th-highest among players averaging at least 20 minutes per game. He was duly torched by DeMarcus Cousins (37 points) as Brooklyn's losing streak stretched to seven games, but there's a silver lining for BroLo's owners -- the 30 minutes tonight were his most in nearly two weeks, and he hasn't had a DNP-CD since mid-November.
Nov 27 - 9:18 PM

Brook Lopez scored 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting in Friday's loss to the Pacers.

He only played 24 minutes due to the lopsided score, so he was headed for a big night. Lopez added four rebounds, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers, and he's now hit at least one triple in each of his last five games. The Nets don't have another back-to-back set until Nov. 22, so he could have a monster month for his fantasy owners.
Nov 26 - 12:02 AM

Brook Lopez scored 21 points on 8-of-14 shooting during Sunday's blowout loss to Portland, adding six rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block, two 3-pointers and two turnovers in 29 minutes.

Through the first 11 games of the season, Lopez leads the Nets in 3-points made (22), which is pretty crazy to think about when you realize that prior to this season he had made a total of three 3-pointers through his first eight years of NBA experience. He’s also in the top-6 in 3-point percentage (35.7) amongst big men, and is a top-15 guy in blocked shots. He’s trending up.
Nov 20 - 6:14 PM

Brook Lopez scored 22 points with four rebounds, two assists, two blocks, one steal and four 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Thunder on Friday.

He had just three made treys in his career before this season started, but Lopez somehow has 2.7 treys per game in November. He's been awesome as a scorer and is putting up top-40 value per game even with the minutes dip. Surprisingly, the Nets do not have a back-to-back set until Dec. 22. While there's still a chance Lopez sits out until then, this might be a good chance for him to put up great fantasy value over the next month.
Nov 19 - 12:25 AM

Kenny Atkinson implied that Brook Lopez's maintenance program won't be going away any time soon.

"There’s a lot of information coming at us," Atkinson said. "We consult a lot of people. We consult our doctors, we consult our performance team, we consult our coaches, we consult Brook. It’s a collaborative process and a pretty well thought out plan." While Atkinson did acknowledge that the constantly changing lineups have hurt Brooklyn's on-court chemistry, he seems committed to adhering to a strict maintenance program for BroLo during the early goings of the 2016-17 season.

Brook Lopez (rest) returned from a one-game absence vs. the Lakers on Tuesday, scoring 30 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, three blocks and four triples in 31 minutes.

He had a dream matchup and made the most of it, shooting 10-of-25 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line, matching his career-high of four triples in the process. Things are looking up for Lopez, as the minutes were a season high and the Nets don't have another back-to-back set until Dec. 22 against the Warriors and Dec. 23 against the Cavaliers.
Nov 16 - 1:21 AM

Brook Lopez is starting against the Lakers on Tuesday as expected.

Justin Hamilton will move to the bench. Lopez rested on Monday vs. the Clippers and may continue sitting out one game of back-to-back sets moving forward. He should see his normal workload in a favorable matchup with Timofey Mozgov Tuesday.
Nov 15 - 10:38 PM

Brook Lopez (rest) won't suit up for Monday's game against the Clippers.

It's the first game of a back-to-back set, so head coach Kenny Atkinson will rest his franchise center. Justin Hamilton will likely draw the start tonight, and the offense will run through Sean Kilpatrick, Bojan Bogdanovic and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. In Hamilton's previous start he put up six points, three boards, one assist, three steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers, but he'll have a very tough matchup against DeAndre Jordan tonight. Lopez should return to action Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Lopez out, several Nets will see an uptick in DFS value. Sean Kilpatrick has taken the reins of the offense with Lopez and Lin off the floor this season, racking up a 31% usage and 1.02 FP/min rate. He's playable in any format tonight, and shouldn't be at much risk of losing playing time due to a blowout. Justin Hamilton should draw the start and is GPP playable.

Brook Lopez scored 21 points on the second night of a back-to-back set on Wednesday, adding four rebounds, one assist, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

The Nets are playing some solid ball and almost won this game after they beat the Wolves on Tuesday. Lopez has boosted his trade value and the Nets clearly know they need more assets due to their horrible deal with the Celtics. To be clear, nothing is imminent or even close at this point regarding a Brook deal. With Lopez likely to be rested throughout the year, his fantasy owners will have to keep their eyes peeled.
Nov 10 - 12:26 AM

Brook Lopez will play Wednesday vs. the Knicks.

There was some fear that Lopez could sit on the second half of a back-to-back set, but he'll be out there, so owners in season-long settings can go ahead and fire him up. That being said, Lopez did log 28 minutes on Tuesday, so his minutes may be constrained tonight, making him a risky DFS target.
