The Nets will reportedly release Greivis Vasquez (ankle) on Wednesday.
Vasquez will need to undergo a second ankle surgery, so it could be tough for him to return to the court this season. In a corresponding move, the Nets will sign Yogi Ferrell, and it'll be interesting to see how many minutes he can earn in the rotation while Jeremy Lin (hamstring) is sidelined. Sean Kilpatrick is still the guy you want to pickup sans Lin, and Isaiah Whitehead should continue to see a role in the mid-20s as Brooklyn's starting point guard. Nov 9 - 1:36 PM

Date:

Greivis Vasquez (ankle) will not play Friday against the Hornets.

The Nets are now missing their top two point guards. Vasquez's ankle is a major problem for him, so the Nets won't be rushing him back. It'll likely be Isaiah Whitehead, Sean Kilpatrick and Randy Foye holding down the minutes at the one.
Nov 3 - 3:19 PM

Greivis Vasquez (right ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

Vasquez re-injured his surgically repaired right ankle during Saturday's loss to the Bucks, and this will be his second straight game on the sidelines. He's listed as day-to-day, but will more than likely be brought along very slowly once he's able to get back to the court. Isaiah Whitehead will pick up most of his minutes.
Nov 2 - 10:21 AM

Grievis Vasquez (ankle) is being listed as day-to-day and should be considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

Vasquez will likely be brought along slowly once he is able to get back to the court, but even when he's completely healthy, he won't have a large enough role in Brooklyn to matter anywhere. Isaiah Whitehead will continue to act as Jeremy Lin's primary backup, but that doesn't mean much.
Nov 1 - 2:33 PM

Greivis Vasquez (ankle) will not play on Monday vs. the Bulls.

Yes, this is the troublesome ankle that he needed surgery on. The Nets won't rush him back and he could be looking at an extended absence. Isaiah Whitehead may finally see consistent minutes off the bench behind Jeremy Lin.
Oct 31 - 1:05 PM

Greivis Vasquez will not return to Saturday's game due to a sore right ankle.

This is his troublesome ankle that needed surgery and plenty of time off. Vasquez is likely going to miss time here, which could open up a chance for Isaiah Whitehead or eventually Caris LeVert. There's no need to add either unless you're in a super deep league.
Oct 29 - 9:24 PM

Greivis Vasquez and Randy Foye will be the starting Brooklyn backcourt for Saturday's preseason tilt vs. New York.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Trevor Booker and Brook Lopez will round out the starting unit. With Jeremy Lin resting, the Nets will get an extended look at their other options at point guard, including rookies Yogi Ferrell and Isaiah Whitehead. Foye will be starting for the second straight game, and it's possible he begins the year with the first five. Even if he does, the veteran will carry no real fantasy value.

Greivis Vasquez (ankle surgery) is expected to make his preseason debut vs. the Pistons on Thursday.

Vasquez's minutes will likely be very limited in his first game back from ankle surgery. He'll be serving in a minimal role behind Jeremy Lin and Randy Foye this year, so he's not worth drafting anywhere.
Oct 6 - 6:38 PM

Greivis Vasquez (ankle surgery) is hopeful that he'll be able to suit up for some preseason games.

"Preparation is important," said Vasquez. "I’m looking forward to at least getting my feet wet. I want to go out there and compete." Vasquez did acknowledge that the decision will ultimately be up to the Nets coaches and medical staff, but it's worth noting that he was able to get through a full practice on Friday. As for fantasy hoops, Vasquez's value will be essentially non-existent while Jeremy Lin, Randy Foye and Isaiah Whitehead are healthy.
Oct 4 - 4:54 PM

Greivis Vasquez (ankle surgery) practiced in full on Friday.

He added that he feels "great," so he should be on pace to be ready for the season opener. Vasquez will compete for the backup PG job behind Jeremy Lin, so his fantasy value is limited.
Sep 30 - 1:54 PM

Greivis Vasquez (ankle surgery) is reportedly confident he'll be good to go for the Nets' regular-season opener.

Players tend to be overly optimistic in projecting when they'll be able to return to the court, so take this report with a grain of salt. Jeremy Lin is the starting point guard in Brooklyn, and the development of Isaiah Whitehead will likely be a priority for the Nets, so expect Vasquez to be eased into things. He won't have much fantasy value at all while the team is healthy.
Sep 27 - 6:15 PM

Greivis Vasquez’s (ankle) status for opening night is still up in the air.

He is still recovering from bone spur surgery on his ankle and his rehab has taken longer than expected. This will be a rebuilding season for the Nets, so it's tough to imagine Vasquez playing a lot of minutes with Jeremy Lin and Isaiah Whitehead in town. He's not a fantasy target this season.

Sep 24 - 9:55 AM

Greivis Vasquez (ankle) said he's getting healthier and should be ready in a few weeks.

Training camp is just around the corner, and while his ankle surgery was nine months ago, it's been bothering him for 18 months. It's not a lock that he will be ready for camp and the Nets won't be in a rush to bring him back in a rebuilding season, so expectations will be pretty low for Vasquez this season. If healthy, Vasquez, Randy Foye and Isaiah Whitehead could all spend time at PG this season backing up Jeremy Lin. Fantasy owners should avoid Vasquez.

Sep 5 - 10:56 AM

Greivis Vasquez announced on Friday that he will not play in the Olympics.

He is fully recovered from the ankle surgery that he had in December, but he's not in good shape yet. Vasquez can now focus on the upcoming season in which he will be competing for the backup PG role in Brooklyn.
Jul 29 - 12:25 PM

Greivis Vasquez might not make the final roster for Team Venezuela.

Venezuela's coach suggested that he didn't put him on the court during Venezuela's most recent exhibition vs. Spain because Vasquez is still "concentrating on getting in shape." Vasquez is fully cleared to play, but he did undergo ankle surgery back in December that cost him 56 games, so perhaps he's not quite 100 percent just yet. Team Venezuela will need to submit their official Olympic roster by Saturday, so we'll have official confirmation on Vasquez's status for Rio at that point.
