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. Oct 8 - 6:12 PM

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.

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.

The Nets and free agent Greivis Vasquez have agreed to a one-year deal.

The Nets missed out on restricted free agents Tyler Johnson and Allen Crabbe, leaving them with more than $30 million in cap space in a rapidly weakening market. Vasquez lends a veteran presence to the backcourt and should earn minutes at both guard spots, allowing the Nets to take it slow with rookies Isaiah Whitehead and Caris LeVert. Vasquez hasn't cracked the top-150 in standard leagues since the 2012-13 season with New Orleans.
Jul 10 - 9:47 PM

Greivis Vasquez is open to joining other teams this summer.

The trade for Vasquez did not go well with the Bucks giving up a 2017 first-round pick and a 2015 second-round pick -- that pick turned out to be Norman Powell. Vasquez will likely be a backup on whatever team he joins next year.
Apr 25 - 2:21 PM

Greivis Vasquez went scoreless again on Sunday, missing two field goal attempts to finish with one assist and no other stats in six minutes.

Vasquez is a combined 0-of-9 from the field in his first three games back from ankle surgery, and he hasn't scored in a game since Nov. 27. He's done nothing to justify the Bucks' decision to acquire him in exchange for a second-round pick (Norman Powell) and a first-round pick in 2017.
Apr 3 - 9:47 PM

Greivis Vasquez (ankle) made his long-awaited return vs. the Suns on Wednesday, going scoreless with three boards and three assists in 13 minutes.

Vasquez missed the Bucks' previous 56 games and will obviously be eased in slowly, especially since Milwaukee is leaning toward player development with just seven games left in their season. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 30 - 11:19 PM

Greivis Vasquez (ankle) is available to play against the Suns on Wednesday.

It's still unclear if he is going to be out there after missing 56 games. If Vasquez does get out there, Jerryd Bayless and Tyler Ennis could see a hit to their playing time.
Mar 30 - 7:22 PM

Greivis Vasquez (ankle) is doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Suns.

Even if he returns to action, his minutes will be very limited. Vasquez did practice on Tuesday, but coach Jason Kidd said he hasn't been cleared to play. Leave him on the wire.
