Mason Plumlee shifted to the bench with Thad Young (knee) healthy on Tuesday, finishing with only four points, three rebounds and one block in 12 foul-plagued minutes.
The Nets won two straight games in Thaddeus Young's absence but he still overtook Plumlee for the starting PF job tonight. Plumlee hasn't been a viable fantasy option with Brook Lopez healthy this season, so it hardly matters where he begins games for Brooklyn. Mar 31 - 10:45 PM

Mason Plumlee moved into the starting lineup for Friday's win over the Cavs, scoring two points on 1-of-3 shooting with eight rebounds and one block in 24 minutes.

Something about Plumlee doesn't agree with Lionel Hollins' system or vice-versa, but he is hit-or-miss when given the minutes and it's usually a miss. There's some opportunity here and Thad Young (knee) is doubtful to play through this weekend, but plenty of risk on an outright add or even a plug-and-play. Give him a bump up in your projections if you're punting free throw percentage.
Mar 28 - 12:56 AM

Mason Plumlee will start in place of Thaddeus Young (knee) on Friday night against the Cavs.

The last time Thaddeus Young was out of the starting lineup, the Nets went with a forward combo of Joe Johnson and Alan Anderson, but they'll go big against the Cavs. Plumlee and Brook Lopez were on the court together for about 12 minutes on Wednesday, so that should continue and both could play for about 20 minutes next to each other. Give Plumlee a look because he'll have a chance at a double-double.
Mar 27 - 5:50 PM

Mason Plumlee played just 17 minutes and missed all four of his shots in Tuesday's loss to the Pelicans, finishing with one point, two rebounds and two assists.

Brook Lopez drew the start again and scored 15 points with nine boards and three blocks, so it's hard to imagine head coach Lionel Hollins putting Plumlee back with the starters. Plumlee does have upside and could potentially log big minutes down the stretch if the Nets continue to fall out of the playoff race, but he is firmly off the radar in standard leagues at the moment.
Mar 10 - 9:50 PM

Mason Plumlee came off Brooklyn's bench on Sunday and finished a disappointing loss to the Jazz with four points, two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 12 minutes.

Utah starts an imposing frontcourt of Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors so this may have been a temporary matchup-based change, but it's just as likely that Plumlee will come off the bench again on Tuesday. He's playing around 20 minutes per game since Thaddeus Young's arrival and can safely be cut for a more promising free agent.
Mar 8 - 8:37 PM

Mason Plumlee played 13 minutes against the Suns on Friday with three points, two boards and one steal.

He lost playing time to Cory Jefferson tonight and his minutes have been wildly inconsistent. In his previous games since the break, Plumlee averaged 9.3 points, 5.9 boards, 0.7 blocks and 0.7 steals in 20.6 minutes. That's not enough to get it done in most leagues even before this bad game.
Mar 7 - 1:21 AM

Mason Plumlee scored seven points on 3-of-7 shooting with seven rebounds and two steals over 22 minutes in Monday's win over the Warriors.

Plumlee has alternated good games with bad games and the end result hasn't been pretty. Until he can keep up the good work, owners can feel free to watch this action from the wire in 12-team formats.
Mar 2 - 11:27 PM

Mason Plumlee double-doubled against the Mavs on Saturday with 14 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and three blocks in 31 minutes.

Brook Lopez only played 15 minutes and Plumlee was the big man who played down the stretch. At first glance, tonight looked like it was coach Lionel Hollins going with the hot hand. Plumlee has really fallen off and has been a letdown because of the Nets keeping Lopez, but feel free to give him a look after tonight.
Feb 28 - 11:25 PM

Mason Plumlee started again on Friday against the Rockets, scoring 15 points on 7-of-10 shooting (1-of-1 FTs) with four rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 22 minutes.

Plumlee racked up four fouls and he's not off the hook for his terrible month, but this is a reminder that he shouldn't be totally written off. If he was dropped give him a look.
Feb 28 - 3:11 AM

Mason Plumlee started on Wednesday, but failed to score and had just three rebounds in 14 minutes.

He had 14 points and five rebounds on Monday, but just four points and five boards on Friday, and it's becoming a mystery why he's still starting over Brook Lopez. Maybe that will change after tonight, as the Nets were terrible out of the gate, missing 13 of their first 15 shots with Plumlee on the floor.
Feb 26 - 12:37 AM

Mason Plumlee scored four points on 2-of-4 shooting with five rebounds, one assist and two steals over 17 foul-plagued minutes in Friday's win over the Lakers.

Plumlee got his fourth foul early and Lionel Hollins never really went back to him. There's such little depth in the Brooklyn frontcourt, even with the acquisition of Thad Young, to write him off after a sub-par month of below the cut line value. He's not a must-own player, but with good upside owners should try to show some patience.
Feb 21 - 4:54 AM

Mason Plumlee was benched to start the second half of Tuesday's game, but still double-doubled with 15 points, 14 boards and three steals in 32 minutes of action.

Plumlee made 6-of-10 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs and his benching may have been a temporary reaction to the Nets' awful start to this game -- they fell behind 15-32 after one quarter in Memphis, and it was the bench that slowly brought them back into the game. He has been slumping lately but owners should at least hang onto him through the trade deadline, as a deal sending Brook Lopez out of Brooklyn would give Plumlee a huge boost.
Feb 10 - 11:51 PM

Mason Plumlee scored 13 points on 4-of-8 shooting (5-of-7 FTs) with eight rebounds, three assists and one block in Monday's loss to the Bucks.

Plumlee had a nice defensive line on Saturday with two steals and two blocks and tonight's line is also another step in the right direction. He has all of the opportunity in the world right now in Brooklyn and he should be owned in standard formats.
Feb 10 - 1:36 AM

Mason Plumlee started on Saturday against the Wizards with six points, seven boards, two steals and two blocks in 23 minutes.

His playing time was up a little from his 17-minute game on Friday. Plumlee's numbers have plummeted over his last five, averaging 7.6 points, 7.6 boards, 0.6 blocks and 0.6 steals on 56.5 percent from the field and 46.2 percent from the line. He's not worth starting now, but he's worth a stash.
Feb 7 - 9:27 PM

Mason Plumlee and Brook Lopez will start against the Wizards.

Kevin Garnett is out tonight due to rest, so Plumlee should see more than his 17 minutes from Friday. He usually posts better numbers without KG and he'll look to bounce back from a quiet couple weeks.
