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.

Willie Reed made his NBA debut on Friday with eight points, four rebounds and one block.

The Nets were getting blown out, so they gave Reed some playing time before garbage time came around. He probably won't be in the rotation most nights.

Willie Reed will be on the active roster for Tuesday's game against the Suns, with Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) on the inactive list.

Reed has yet to make his regular-season debut, and there are no guarantees that will change tonight. He's not worth owning in any format.
Tue, Dec 1, 2015 06:21:00 PM

Willie Reed will not be available for Sunday's game against the Pistons.

Donald Sloan is on the active roster, so Reed will not be available tonight. Reed has yet to make his regular-season debut, and should not be owned in any format.

Willie Reed (left thumb) will be active for the first time this season on Saturday vs. the Cavaliers.

He's been sidelined since October after having surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb, but he recently was cleared for contact and should be ready to play if his name is called. He won't be in the rotation right away, so owners in deeper leagues can just keep an eye on him for now.

Willie Reed (left thumb) was able to do some non-contact work at practice on Friday.

We haven't heard much about Reed' status, but he has been sidelined since October after having surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb. Reed was initially targeting a return to the court in December, so this report does bode well for that timetable. Reed still isn't worth a flier in almost any league, though.

Willie Reed (left thumb) will miss the next 6-8 weeks after having surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb.

It's a tough blow for Reed, who has looked great at times since Summer League. Hopefully, he can make it back before the calendar turns to 2016.
Fri, Oct 16, 2015 04:29:00 PM

Willie Reed suffered a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right thumb during Wednesday's preseason game, and he is scheduled to undergo surgery on Friday.

A timetable to Reed's return will likely be set following his surgery on Friday, but this latest injury may result in him getting cut from the team prior to the regular-season opener.

Willie Reed (quad) returned to practice on Sunday.

Reed hasn't played in a preseason game yet, but hopefully this means he will get some playing time on Wednesday vs. the Celtics. Reed has a lot of work to do just to make the final roster, so he can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Sun, Oct 11, 2015 01:10:00 PM

Willie Reed (quad) will not play vs. the 76ers on Saturday.

Reed is trying to earn a spot on Brooklyn's 15-man roster for the upcoming season, but this injury could really hurt his chances. Even if he does make the team, Reed won't be an option in fantasy leagues.
Sat, Oct 10, 2015 11:46:00 AM

Willie Reed (quad) was limited in practice on Friday.

Despite picking up some momentum during the summer league, this injury could really hurt his chances of making the final roster if he doesn't return to full practice soon. Reed isn't on the fantasy radar.
