The All-Star Slam Dunk contest will include Mason Plumlee, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Victor Oladipo, and Zach LaVine.
It's definitely an intriguing group to watch this season, but it's no secret that the dunk contest has lost a lot of steam in recent years, so hopefully these players turn that around. Plumlee, Giannis and Oladipo have been must-own players this season, but rookie Zach LaVine has had a tough time adapting to life in the NBA. LaVine should be in his element for this contest though, and should be considered to be the favorite to win the competition. Jan 27 - 7:11 PM

Mason Plumlee made 6-of-9 from the field and 4-of-11 from the line for 16 points with three rebounds, one assist and two steals in 25 minutes against the Clippers on Thursday.

He put his 11-minute stinker from Wednesday behind him, but did drop his foul shooting below 50 percent on the season with this game. Plumlee should still be a 14-point, eight-board guy while Brook Lopez is around and could approach the 20-point neighborhood once Bro-Lo is dealt. He's still worth owning in standard leagues even with the awful foul shooting.
Jan 23 - 1:31 AM

Mason Plumlee played 11 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday with six points and two assists.

He was in foul trouble against DeMarcus Cousins, which is pretty common these days. Plumlee's minutes are falling off a little bit with just 26.0 per game in his previous two, but the Brook Lopez trade rumor makes him worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 22 - 1:20 AM

Mason Plumlee played 24 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday with 11 points, three rebounds, two steals and five fouls.

Foul trouble was a culprit tonight and it resulted in his fewest minutes since Jan. 4. Plumlee will his a spike in his minutes soon enough with the Nets extremely likely to deal Brook Lopez. He should remain owned in all leagues.
Jan 18 - 12:57 AM

Mason Plumlee started alongside Brook Lopez on Wednesday and hit 7-of-9 shots for 15 points, nine rebounds, a steal and a block in 33 minutes.

Bro-Lo started for suspended Kevin Garnett, but KG should be back on Friday. Plumlee has stolen Lopez's starting gig and should be owned and started in all leagues until further notice.
Jan 14 - 11:28 PM

Mason Plumlee scored a career-high 24 points against the Rockets on Monday during a 113-99 loss with 10 boards and one steal.

It's not often younger big men have success against Dwight Howard, but Plumlee has really been on a roll. He gets most of his buckets right around the basket and is only behind DeAndre Jordan for field goal percentage. As long as you're OK with sub-par foul shooting, Plumlee is a must-own player in shallow formats.
Jan 12 - 10:33 PM

Mason Plumlee grabbed a career-high 15 rebounds against the Sixers on Friday with 15 points, one assist and two steals in 32 minutes during a 90-88 loss.

He sat out way too long in the fourth quarter and that might be part of the reason why the Nets had a horrible loss at home tonight. Plumlee is filling it up over his last five, averaging 13.6 points, 9.6 boards, 1.2 assists and 1.4 blocks, but he really can't make free throws. He's still holding enough value to hold in just about all leagues even if it's just as trade bait.
Jan 10 - 12:32 AM

Mason Plumlee scored 16 points against the Celtics during an 89-81 loss on Wednesday with 12 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 37 minutes.

He was 6-of-11 from the line and that's going to be an issue all season. Plumlee's minutes seem to be safe in the high 20s most nights, but Brook Lopez was so bad that Plumlee played more. He's worth a look in standard leagues.
Jan 8 - 12:53 AM

Mason Plumlee will continue to start ahead of Brook Lopez "indefinitely," according to Lionel Hollins.

Plumlee is averaging 14.9 points, 8.6 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 1.5 blocks on 67.9 percent shooting as a starter, so it's not a tough decision to make. Lopez was falling flat on his face as a starter while Plumlee couldn't find himself in a reserve role earlier this season, so the switch has seemingly benefited both players so far.
Jan 5 - 11:01 AM

Mason Plumlee was at it again with 18 points, nine rebounds, one steal and two blocks in the Nets' road win over the Magic on Friday.

Plumlee hit 9-of-10 shots and missed all three of his free throws as a difference-maker in tonight's game. He has been a solid third round value over the past two weeks and it's well past the time to pick him up. Assuming his role isn't jerked around, he has easy mid-round upside.
Jan 2 - 9:57 PM

Mason Plumlee started Tuesday's game but was benched to begin the second half, finishing with only six points, eight rebounds, one steal and one block in 17 minutes.

Mirza Teletovic took his place as a starter and this could be a sign that Plumlee is headed back to a permanent bench role now that Brook Lopez is healthy. He's worth hanging onto for a few more games if you don't mind his atrocious FT shooting (46.7 percent on 4.6 attempts), but keep in mind that he's been demonstrably better while in the starting lineup.
Tue, Dec 30, 2014 11:23:00 PM

Mason Plumlee scored 22 points on 6-of-7 shooting (10-of-16 FTs) with four rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block in the Nets' 107-99 win over the Kings on Monday.

Plumlee has returned top 40-50 value over the last eight games, that's where his upside is in standard leagues, and he should be owned in all formats. Pick him up if you still can.
Mon, Dec 29, 2014 11:48:00 PM

Mason Plumlee played 32 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday with nine points, eight boards and one block.

He had three consecutive double-doubles before this game and he's earned some playing time next to Brook Lopez. While it's tough to project what Plumlee's season outlook might be, he's at least worth a look for owners in head-to-head standard leagues.
Sat, Dec 27, 2014 11:43:00 PM

Mason Plumlee played a team-high 36 minutes against the Celtics on Friday with 14 points, 12 rebounds, three assists and one block.

Brook Lopez played just 14 minutes and even some of them were next to Plumlee, which is extremely rare. Plumlee looks to be set for at least minutes in the 20s once Lopez is back to full strength, so he might be worth owning in standard leagues. Although, his foul shooting is going to sting.
Fri, Dec 26, 2014 04:08:00 PM

Mason Plumlee earned another start vs. Denver on Tuesday, recording 19 points on 9-of-14 shooting, 13 rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocks in a team-high 40 minutes.

The only bad news is that Brook Lopez (back) returned to action tonight, playing a handful of minutes off the bench, so Plumlee's starting job may not last much longer. Lopez's health is always tenuous, however, and Kevin Garnett is prone to random DNPs, so Plumlee's owners should at least hang onto him until he cools off.
