Mason Plumlee has been promoted to the Team USA National Team.
He was part of the Select Team but a lack of big men prompted executive director Jerry Colangelo to let him compete for one of Team USA's 12 roster spots. It's doubtful that he'll make the cut, but it's a testament to Plumlee's skills and rising profile in the NBA. He's poised to have a solid season in Brooklyn, especially if Brook Lopez is limited by his surgically-repaired feet. Jul 29 - 6:49 PM

Mason Plumlee has been named to the USA Select team.

This is a huge honor for the 24-year-old as he attempts to build off his strong Summer League showing. Plumlee will join his brother, Mason, and 10 other young players who will help prepare Team USA for this summer's World Cup of Basketball. Plumlee will open the 2014-15 season backing up Brook Lopez, but should be able to carve out a role for himself in the Nets' rotation and provide fantasy value to owners in deeper leagues.

Mason Plumlee (sore left foot) will not play against the Sixers on Wednesday.

He has been outstanding in Orlando so far and there was no major sign of an injury prior to today. Plumlee is likely going to earn a role in the rotation, but his playing time figures to be sparse while Brook Lopez (foot) is healthy.
Jul 9 - 5:17 PM

Mason Plumlee made 8-of-11 from the field for 23 points vs. the Pacers on Saturday, adding seven boards, one assist and three steals.

He continues to thrive around the basket and looked great today. Plumlee's rookie season went well down the stretch and he'll look to back up Brook Lopez next season. He won't be on the radar in standard leagues off the bat, but playing time could open up for him.
Jul 5 - 11:32 AM

Mason Plumlee will headline the Nets' summer league roster this month.

He'll be joined by the three rookies, Marquis Teague and Jorge Gutierrez. Cory Jefferson, Xavier Thames and Markel Brown could all see minutes, but Plumlee may be the most interesting player to watch after really improving down the stretch last season.
Jul 1 - 10:56 AM

Mason Plumlee was named to the All-Rookie First Team on Thursday.

He filled in admirably for an injured Brook Lopez and an aging Kevin Garnett during the regular season, averaging 7.4 points and 4.4 rebounds. Unfortunately for Brooklyn, his production in the playoffs plummeted down to 2.2 points in just 11 minutes of action. Despite his postseason failures, he proved that he can perform at the NBA level and has promise as a late-round add in fantasy drafts.
May 22 - 2:33 PM

Mason Plumlee hit 7-of-9 shots for 16 points and nine rebounds in 30 minutes on Tuesday.

He's made a name for himself over the past 30 games and should have another nice one on Wednesday, with or without the regular starters playing for Jason Kidd.
Apr 15 - 11:33 PM

Mason Plumlee hit all six of his field goal attempts on Friday, scoring 17 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 29 minutes off the bench.

Plumlee is cruising right now with averages of 14.3 points, 6.0 boards, 1.5 combined steals and blocks, and 83.3 percent field goal shooting over his last four games. He's averaging 27.4 minutes in that span and it wouldn't be surprising if he keeps it up while the Nets rest their older players. Those numbers are good enough for mid-round value and owners needing a big man should pick him up.
Apr 11 - 11:30 PM

Mason Plumlee blocked LeBron James shot near the end of the game as the Nets held on for an 88-87 win over the Heat to complete a four-game season sweep of the champs.

Plumlee had eight points, eight rebounds, a steal and three blocks, although the one he had on LeBron to save the game certainly could have been called a foul. Plumlee will likely move back to the bench for his next game, as Kevin Garnett is expected to start after sitting this one out.
Apr 8 - 10:56 PM

With Kevin Garnett out on Tuesday, Mason Plumlee will start against the Heat.

Plumlee had 16 points and seven rebounds off the bench on Saturday, and could be a sneaky fantasy play tonight.
Apr 8 - 11:17 AM

Mason Plumlee scored 16 points in his return to the bench on Saturday vs. the Sixers with seven boards and one assist in 23 minutes.

The move to the bench should not hurt him too much because Kevin Garnett is not going to be able to log many minutes. If you've owned Plumlee to this point, he's not necessarily a player to cut. Of course, this line is a bit inflated coming against the Sixers.
Apr 5 - 10:43 PM

Mason Plumlee handed out a season-high four assists vs. the Rockets on Tuesday, adding 11 points and six rebounds with one steal and two blocks.

Plumlee is only averaging 21 minutes as a starter this season, yet he's still scoring 7.4 points with 6.0 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 1.0 blocks in those games. His 62 percent FT shooting is compensated for by an equal 62 percent mark from the field, and his impressive per-minute averages are worth remembering with his role likely to expand next season.
Apr 1 - 11:07 PM

Mason Plumlee's streak of double-digit scoring games ended on Sunday with five points on 2-of-8 shooting, six rebounds, three assists and one steal.

The biggest limitation for Plumlee's fantasy value has been playing time, and he's still averaging only 23 minutes as a starter with Kevin Garnett sidelined by back spasms the past two weeks. Foul trouble is occasionally the culprit, but owners looking ahead to Plumlee's sophomore NBA season should remember his terrific per-36-minute splits -- 14.7 points on 64.1 percent shooting, 8.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.5 steals, 1.6 blocks and only 1.9 turnovers.
Mar 23 - 11:04 PM

Mason Plumlee excelled in another start at center for the Nets during a win over the Celtics on Friday, making 6-of-7 from the field for 18 points with five boards, three assists and three steals in 21 minutes.

He's really turned the corner since the break and leads all rookies in field goal percentage in that span (minimum of 2.0 attempts per game). It certainly wasn't a good day for Duke, but Plumlee has been a nice find for the Nets and he's on the radar as a player to own in standard leagues with Kevin Garnett (back) out for at least three more games.
Mar 22 - 2:49 AM

Mason Plumlee was put into a YouTube video by Gerald Green's monster dunk on Wednesday, but also had 11 points, seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block on 4-of-6 shooting in 19 minutes in another start for the Nets on Wednesday.

Plumlee's worth a deep-league look right now, averaging 12.5 points, 9.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals over his last two games. And over his last five, those numbers come in at 8.6 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.0 blocks.
