Mason Plumlee is shooting under 40 percent from the field and has fallen behind Jerome Jordan in the rotation.
"It's not what I expected," he said. "I want to stay away from the word frustrated, because you just have to look forward, focus on what positives there is and just start playing better." Plumlee is shooting under 50 percent from the free-throw line as well and has been downright awful this season. Nov 24 - 10:31 AM

Mason Plumlee had another game to forget on Monday, hitting just 1-of-5 shots (0-for-5 FTs) for two points, seven rebounds, two assists and a steal in 14 minutes.

Plumlee hasn't gotten off the ground at all this year and until he can find his way he belongs on the wire in most formats.
Nov 17 - 11:57 PM

Mason Plumlee double-doubled in just 16 minutes off the bench on Sunday, putting up 12 points, 10 rebounds, one steal, one block, and one turnover.

That line is impressive given the limited minutes, but Plumlee wasn't doing much up to this point, and is just averaging 5.4 points and 5.2 rebounds on the season. He's going to be difficult to own while Brook Lopez is healthy, but makes sense as a handcuff option for owners of Lopez.
Nov 9 - 7:49 PM

Mason Plumlee played 16 minutes off the bench against the Thunder on Monday with 10 points, eight boards and one assist.

He had a nice dunk at the buzzer in this game, but he'll take a backseat now with Brook Lopez back in the lineup. Plumlee wasn't playing great as the starter, so fantasy owners shouldn't have too tough of a time letting him go in most formats.
Nov 3 - 11:19 PM

Mason Plumlee will head to the bench on Monday as Brook Lopez (foot) makes his return to the starting lineup.

Plumlee didn't do much with his opportunity while Lopez was sidelined, averaging a meager 7.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.0 block over two games. His minutes are going to take a hit, and it'll be hard to own him in standard leagues while he comes off the bench.
Nov 3 - 4:55 PM

Mason Plumlee will likely go back to a bench role with the news coming in that Brook Lopez (foot) is expected to play Monday.

Plumlee was disappointing in his first two starts of the season, and it would be tough to hold onto him in standard leagues with Brook Lopez (foot) returning. However, considering how injury prone Lopez is, Plumlee could emerge again later in the season, so deep league owners should keep tabs on him.
Nov 2 - 1:49 PM

Mason Plumlee posted another quiet line on Saturday, scoring 10 points on 4-of-6 FGs and 2-of-4 FTs, with five rebounds and one steal in 21 minutes.

Plumlee had a tremendous preseason and looked poised for a nice start to the year with Brook Lopez (foot) out of commission, but thus far he's been disappointing. He's made 6-of-8 FGs in two games, but unless his playing time and volume of attempts increases fantasy owners will have to view him as a deep-league option.
Nov 2 - 12:11 AM

Mason Plumlee is expected to start again on Saturday with Brook Lopez (foot) sidelined.

Plumlee only played 11 minutes during his regular-season debut due to foul trouble, and put up just four points and four rebounds. He'll have a tough matchup on Saturday vs. Andre Drummond, so he could be in line for another so-so game.
Oct 31 - 1:33 PM

Mason Plumlee said he needs to work on staying out of foul trouble after struggling in Wednesday's loss to the Celtics.

Plumlee was in the Nets' starting rotation, but only played 11 minutes after picking up two quick fouls at the start of each half. "I picked up a couple early ones and kept fouling," Plumlee said. "I can’t do that if I want to stay on the floor." The 24-year-old has plenty of potential, but he's going to be tough to keep on fantasy rosters if he can't stay on the court.
Oct 30 - 1:42 PM

Mason Plumlee picked up some early fouls and played just 11 minutes in his start against the Celtics on Wednesday, scoring just four points with four rebounds and two blocks.

If he's going to remain in the starting lineup, he'll have to cool it with the fouls. Plumlee may have been close to 30 minutes tonight based on his preseason and how he finished the regular season, so tonight was a major letdown. He should be better his next time out, but isn't a must-own player.
Oct 29 - 10:25 PM

Mason Plumlee will start on Wednesday vs. Boston with Brook Lopez (foot) out.

Plumlee has an excellent chance to rack up stats in as many minutes as he can handle Wednesday. He is definitely worth picking up considering the injury history of Brook Lopez, and the lack of depth in Brooklyn's frontcourt.
Oct 29 - 10:55 AM

Mason Plumlee is expected to see big minutes on Wednesday, even if Brook Lopez (foot) suits up against Boston.

Lopez is still considered doubtful so Plumlee makes a lot of sense as an excellent fantasy option in the short-term. Considering the injury history of Lopez, and the declining Kevin Garnett, Plumlee has a great chance of receiving big minutes this season and is definitely worth an extended look.

Mason Plumlee said he's ready to take open jump shots from "15 feet and in," but coach Lionel Hollins would prefer to see him anchored in the paint.

"I'd rather for him to never shoot a jump shot," Hollins said. "I want him to be more comfortable in the post making moves. He has good footwork, he's quick, jumps well and has a nice jump hook with his right and left hand." Plumlee took 96 percent of his shots within eight feet of the rim last season, so we're not expecting many mid-range jumpers.

The Nets have picked up their team option on Mason Plumlee.

Plumlee is a nice fantasy asset to own while Brook Lopez is on the sidelines. However, when Brook is healthy Plumlee will struggle to find consistent minutes. He's worth a late-round flier in standard leagues, but would probably be served best on the team that drafts Lopez.
Oct 24 - 2:26 PM

Mason Plumlee started and had 15 points, 11 boards, two steals and two blocks on Wednesday.

He'll be a fine fantasy starter as long as Brook Lopez is out with his foot problem, but once Bro-Lo is back in action, Plumlee may struggle for consistency. Lopez should be ready to go around the start of the season, but if you draft him, taking Plumlee as insurance makes sense.
