Willie Reed (personal) will not play again for Brooklyn this season.
Reed is stepping away from a ton of opportunity with Brook Lopez (rest) and Thaddeus Young (rest) done for the year, and it's currently unclear exactly what's going on with his personal life. We wish him the best, but with Reed unavailable, Thomas Robinson, Chris McCullough and Henry Sims figure to log heavy minutes for the Nets, with Robinson offering the most upside out of the group.

Date:

Willie Reed will be placed on the inactive list for Thursday's game against the Cavs.

He wouldn't be a major part of the rotation anyway with Brook Lopez active. Leave Reed on the wire.
Mar 24 - 5:55 PM

Willie Reed will return to the bench for Tuesday's game against the Hornets, with Brook Lopez (illness) back in the starting lineup.

Reed may fall out of the rotation entirely with Lopez active, so he can safely be left on the wire in all formats.
Mar 22 - 6:48 PM

Willie Reed scored 13 points with six rebounds and two blocks in 28 minutes during a start against the Pistons on Saturday.

He picked up a lot of run after missing two games due to knee soreness. Brook Lopez did go through warmups before he was ruled out, so chances are Lopez should be ready for Tuesday. Leave Reed on the wire in most leagues.
Mar 19 - 10:04 PM

Willie Reed will start against the Pistons on Saturday.

He did not play on Tuesday due to his sore knee, so he might be limited. Thomas Robinson should also get a nice bump in playing tonight tonight in a favorable matchup.
Mar 19 - 7:06 PM

Willie Reed (sore knee) will not play on Tuesday against the 76ers.

It's a new injury for Reed. He's not in the rotation every night, so there aren't many fantasy implications here.
Mar 14 - 5:12 PM

Willie Reed will come off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Raptors.

Thaddeus Young and Brook Lopez will be back after missing the last game for rest purposes, so Reed may only see limited minutes off the bench tonight. It's possible that Reed could get some minutes down the stretch if the Nets rest their veterans some more, but he's only on the radar in deep leagues for now. He scored a career-high 14 points with eight rebounds, three assists and four blocks in 32 minutes against the Wolves on Saturday.
Mar 8 - 7:04 PM

Willie Reed scored a career-high 14 points with eight rebounds, three assists and four blocks in 32 minutes against the Wolves on Saturday

He's showed some flashes this year and he put up a very encouraging game in his first real chance at minutes. The Nets did rest Brook Lopez tonight, so just keep this line in mind the next time Bro-Lo sits.
Mar 5 - 11:16 PM

Willie Reed will start on Saturday vs. the Wolves.

Thaddeus Young and Brook Lopez are getting the night off on the second game of a bak-to-back set, so Reed and Thomas Robinson are both looking at heavy minutes. The Nets don't have anything to play for, so it's possible that Reed could get some decent minutes down the stretch. For now, he's only worth a look in very deep leagues.
Mar 5 - 6:40 PM

Nets big man Willie Reed had four points, two rebounds and one block in just six minutes on Sunday, his first action since late January.

Reed dealt with a minor groin injury in early February but his recent inactivity was more the result of coach Tony Brown's rotation. The Nets may lean toward player development as the season comes to a close, but Reed is a longshot for value in any format.
Feb 21 - 9:29 PM

Willie Reed (tight left groin) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pacers.

Reed hasn't played in the Nets last three games, so he can be left on waivers in all fantasy leagues even if he's able to play against the Pacers.
Feb 2 - 12:50 PM

Willie Reed (personal) will be active for Saturday's game vs. the Hawks.

He is traveling to the arena as we report this, so there is a chance he won't make it there in time. Regardless, Reed isn't a big part of the rotation anyways, so he belongs on the wire in most leagues.
Jan 16 - 6:28 PM

Willie Reed (personal) will miss Friday's game vs. the Blazers.

Reed isn't a major part of the rotation in Brooklyn, so his absence from Friday's game will go largely unnoticed in fantasy hoops. Maybe Thomas Robinson plays slightly more.
Jan 14 - 3:59 PM

Willie Reed pulled down a career-high seven boards against the Celtics on Saturday, adding six points in 12 minutes.

He was awesome on the offensive glass and has earned some nice minutes at the four and five. Reed is only worth a look in ridiculously deep leagues.
Jan 2 - 6:25 PM

Willie Reed scored a career-high 12 points in 12 minutes in Monday's win over the Bulls.

It appears that Reed has leapfrogged Thomas Robinson (DNP-CD) in the rotation, and that's notable because the Nets could be one of the busiest teams at the trade deadline with their season going nowhere but down the drain. However, this was the first game that he saw double-digit minutes since Dec. 10, so he should only be on your radar in very deep leagues.
