Mirza Teletovic missed both of his field goal attempts and did not score on Friday, finishing with just three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 17 minutes.
Teletovic hit four triples on Wednesday and this is life with a streaky 3-point shooting big man. He has very low-end value over 23.4 mpg in 12-team standard leagues this season, but with the age and durability of the guys in front of him being an issue he stands a good chance of improving on that mark as he gets more playing time.

Date:

Mirza Teletovic started on Wednesday and hit 5-of-10 shots and four 3-pointers for 14 points, three rebounds and two assists in a loss to Toronto.

Kevin Garnett got the night off and Sergey Karasev was out with an injury, so Teletovic got the start. He's probably worth owning in most leagues for his 3-point prowess, but he's been very inconsistent all season. He also recently missed three straight games with a hip injury and had just five points in his return on Tuesday, and could be headed back to the bench with Garnett slated to return for the next one.

Mirza Teletovic will start for the Nets against the Raptors on Wednesday, replacing Kevin Garnett (rest).

Teletovic just returned from a hip injury on Tuesday, but should be in line for as many minutes as he can handle with KG out of the lineup. Teletovic should be owned in most leagues for his ability to knock down 3-pointers in a hurry, and he should also be considered as a strong plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
Dec 17 - 6:40 PM

Mirza Teletovic returned to action on Tuesday, finishing with five points, one assist and one 3-pointer in 11 minutes.

After missing the previous three games, it is not surprising to see the Nets ease him back into action. Teletovic should see his role increase again soon, and he deserves a long look in most leagues for his ability to knock down 3-pointers.
Dec 17 - 12:23 AM

Mirza Teletovic (hip) will play on Tuesday as the Nets take on the Heat.

He's going to come off the bench, but he'll still see some increased opportunity with Brook Lopez (back) sidelined. However, Teletovic remains a risky play in daily leagues due to his hit-or-miss nature.
Dec 16 - 5:54 PM

Mirza Teletovic (hip) will not play against the Hornets on Saturday.

It'll be his third game out of the lineup. Teletovic's hip pointer has made him questionable for each game, but the Nets have ruled him out fairly quickly. He could be worth a stash, but might be out a little longer. Expect Alan Anderson, Sergey Karasev and Bojan Bogdanovic to get more shots.
Dec 13 - 5:36 PM

Mirza Teletovic (hip) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Hornets.

He has already missed the last two games but could be in for some serious playing time if he is feeling up to it with Brook Lopez (back) out of the lineup and Kevin Garnett dealing with an ailing foot. We should know more shortly and owners will have no choice but to wait patently until we get official confirmation. Mason Plumlee would see all the minutes he could handle if Teletovic sits this one out. Stay tuned.
Dec 13 - 1:47 PM

Mirza Teletovic (hip) is traveling with the team for Saturday's game against the Hornets.

It's unknown if he can play and he should be considered questionable. Teletovic has missed the last two games with his hip pointer and he didn't try to warm up tonight, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him sit. Mason Plumlee had a great game tonight and would be worth a look.
Dec 12 - 10:49 PM

Mirza Teletovic (hip) will not play against the 76ers on Friday.

The Nets will go with Mason Plumlee in the starting lineup again. Teletovic was putting up some decent output with Brook Lopez going down and might be worth stashing for owners needing treys.
Dec 12 - 5:53 PM

Mirza Teletovic (right hip pointer) returned to practice on Thursday.

This is a positive sign for Mirza being able to suit up for Friday's game vs. the 76ers, and he'll have some nice short-term value while Brook Lopez (back) is out of commission. Kevin Garnett (foot) was unable to practice on Thursday, and if he can't play Friday Teletovic (if able to play) could see heavy minutes. Stay tuned.
Dec 11 - 3:01 PM

Mirza Teletovic will not play vs. the Bulls on Wednesday due to a right hip pointer.

The Nets are seriously depleted with Mirza, Brook Lopez (back) and Joe Johnson (flu) all out of commission. Mason Plumlee and Kevin Garnett will be pressed into heavy action against the Bulls' frontcourt, and more minutes should also be available for backup C Jerome Jordan.
Dec 10 - 6:54 PM

Mirza Teletovic (hip) is considered questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls, and will not participate in the morning shootaround.

He made the trip with the team, so we should know something about his status shortly. Teletovic drew the start on Monday, and could see big minutes with Brook Lopez (back) already ruled out for the week. Check back before tip-off, as owners will want to get Teletovic active in their lineup if he is cleared to play. Stay tuned.

Mirza Teletovic (hip) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

Teletovic is traveling with the team, but it sounds like there's a good chance he won't play on Wednesday due to his hip pointer. With Joe Johnson, Andrei Kirilenko, and Brook Lopez already declared out for Wednesday, Kevin Garnett will get all the minutes he can handle while Mason Plumlee, Jerome Jordan, and Bojan Bogdanovic would all see extra playing time as well.

Mirza Teletovic suffered a hip pointer and a facial laceration on Monday and will not return.

Ouch. He needed four stitches for his face and his hip pointer will likely be re-evaluated tomorrow. Hip pointers can be week-to-week injuries or minor, so it's tough to tell if he'll miss time. With Brook Lopez (back) out, the Nets will need to get more out of Mason Plumlee and Jerome Jordan.
Dec 8 - 9:27 PM

Mirza Teletovic will start next to Deron Williams, Bojan Bogdanovic, Alan Anderson and Kevin Garnett against the Cavs on Monday.

Teletovic has played 27 percent of his minutes next to Garnett this season, so this isn't a surprise. He is coming in ice cold, but he should get a decent chance to turn it around. If you're looking for some treys, he's certainly worth a look in standard leagues. Mason Plumlee should still get some minutes and is worth a look in standards, as well.
