Mirza Teletovic hit 5-of-10 shots and three more 3-pointers for 15 points, seven rebounds, a steal and a block in 24 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.
Bojan Bogdanovic appears to be the starter, but Teletovic should have plenty of lines like this one off the Nets bench. And if BB struggles, Teletovic could be called on to start at any time. Oct 22 - 10:20 PM

Mirza Teletovic had the green light again on Monday with 10 attempts from beyond the arc against the 76ers, making three of them for nine points with 11 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 27 minutes.

He missed all five of his shots inside the arc in this one. Teletovic had 2.8 triples per game in the preseason and he'll have a legitimate chance to make that many while Brook Lopez (foot) is out. He's a sneaky late-round pick for owners who neglected 3-pointers.
Oct 20 - 11:24 PM

Coach Lionel Hollins said Mirza Teletovic would start in place of Brook Lopez (foot).

He's been on fire in the preseason and was one of the top 3-point shooters in the fourth quarter last season. Teletovic is going to benefit greatly from the Lopez injury and is well worth a look at the end of a standard draft.

The Nets won in OT on Wednesday thanks to Mirza Teletovic's shooting display, as he scored a team-high 22 points on 7-of-12 FGs, including 6-of-9 from downtown.

Teletovic added four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in just 27 minutes of action. He's expected to come off the bench behind Kevin Garnett at PF, but KG's minute-limit and Teletovic's sheer upside for 3-pointers make him a player to target in the final rounds.
Oct 15 - 11:10 AM

Mirza Teletovic came off the bench for 13 points, eight rebounds, a block and two 3-pointers on 5-of-11 shooting in 27 minutes of Tuesday's preseason win.

We're in love with Teletovic's game and ability to hit 3-pointers, but there are concerns about his playing time with Kevin Garnett starting at power forward. But if you find yourself desperate for 3-pointers late in your draft, Teletovic is a good place to go fishing.
Oct 7 - 11:26 PM

General manager Billy King said Mirza Teletovic isn't pressing as much and he's been more comfortable.

He's going to come off the bench to start the season, but that could all change once Kevin Garnett needs to miss time. The Nets have the oldest and tallest starting lineup in the NBA, so chances are someone is going to miss time. Teletovic is more of a watch-list player in most leagues.
Oct 6 - 11:20 AM

Mirza Teletovic said coach Lionel Hollins told him he's counting on him this season.

The Nets are thinner at power forward this season with Kevin Garnett as their likely starter, but Teletovic may see plenty of time as the stretch four off the bench. He's expected to see a nice increase and was actually ranked fifth in the NBA for 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, so he's a low-end specialist to grab late in a standard draft.

With Paul Pierce in Washington and Kevin Garnett entering his 20th season (and averaging just six points per game last season), it would appear that Mirza Teletovic is primed for a breakout season.

He came on over his final eight games of the season last year, averaging 11.9 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.8 3-pointers, and he could offer more of the same as a starter this year. The Nets could still make an acquisition or two that would hurt Teletovic, but as of now, he looks like a good bet to be a very nice fantasy sleeper. But a starting lineup of Deron Williams, Jarrett Jack, Joe Johnson, Teletovic and Brook Lopez would likely be a defensive sieve for the opposition.
Jul 17 - 2:20 AM

Mirza Teletovic hit 4-of-7 shots, all 3-pointers, for 12 points and six rebounds in 19 minutes in Saturday's Game 3 win.

Teletovic had 20 points and six treys on Thursday, and he's now hit 13 3-pointers in three playoff games against the Heat.
May 10 - 10:58 PM

Mirza Teletovic scored a team-high 20 points vs. the Heat on Thursday with two boards, two turnovers and six 3-pointers.

His six triples set a franchise record in a playoff game and he was the only real highlight for the Nets tonight. Teletovic has been hot here and there and he's mostly done his damage in the fourth quarter, but they were an absolute joke down the stretch with just 15 points in that frame. Mirza will likely cool off on Saturday in Game 3.
May 8 - 10:25 PM

Mirza Teletovic has missed a couple games after his wife gave birth to twins, but we're guessing he's ready to go for the playoffs.

He might have missed at least one of those games in order to rest, but his family should be situated by the time they face the Raptors in Round 1.
Apr 17 - 12:18 AM

Mirza Teletovic will not play on Wednesday to be with his wife and newborn twins.

While Teletovic and his wife celebrate, the Nets gear up for a game vs. the Cavaliers that could decide their playoff seeding. If the Nets lose and the Wizards win on Wednesday, Washington will take over the No. 5 seed by virtue of a tie-breaker.

Mirza Teletovic will miss Tuesday's game against the Knicks for personal reasons.

Alan Anderson and Shaun Livingston are also out, while Paul Pierce, Joe Johnson and Deron Williams are all listed as game-time decisions. Carmelo Anthony is not expected to play for the Knicks, and this game is setting up to be a bit of a no-name circus. Marcus Thornton, Marquis Teague and Mason Plumlee could all have big games tonight.
Apr 15 - 10:48 AM

Nets PF Mirza Teletovic made 7-of-12 field goals with four 3-pointers on Sunday, while grabbing six rebounds and blocking one shot in 29 minutes off the bench.

Teletovic is shooting nearly 39 percent from downtown on the season and he's picked up the pace in April (42.9 percent), which gives Brooklyn some much-welcomed firepower off the bench. His perimeter shooting makes him an intriguing fantasy player, and we'll keep an eye on him this summer with the Nets' roster likely to see plenty of changes.
Apr 13 - 8:33 PM

Mirza Teletovic started for Paul Pierce (hip) and hit 5-of-17 shots (all 3-pointers) for 17 points and nine rebounds in Wednesday's loss to the Magic.

Teletovic didn't shoot it particularly well but if you saw our blurb announcing him as a starter and put him in your lineup, he gave you exactly what you were probably looking for - points, threes and boards. If he continues to start he's probably worth having in your lineup.
