Sergey Karasev (abdomen) returned to action in Friday's loss, scoring a season-high 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 37 minutes.
Karasev hasn't shown us much in his career but if Deron Williams (calf) misses some time then he might have some low-end value. It's certainly not a run-to-the-wire moment but he's worth keeping an eye on. Dec 20 - 12:26 AM

Date:

Sergey Karasev will start at shooting guard vs. the Cavs.

He is not going to get a ton of shots in the first unit and isn't really great with the ball in his hands, so he has a very low upside. Karasev can be ignored in most leagues for now.
Dec 19 - 6:46 PM

Sergey Karasev (oblique) is likely going to start on Friday against the Cavs.

Oblique injuries are much more common in baseball players and it usually costs them about a month, but it sounds like Karasev only needed a few days. He's not going to be too involved in the offense and is only worth a look in very deep leagues.
Dec 19 - 6:08 PM

Sergey Karasev (oblique) has been upgraded to a game-time decision for Friday's game vs. the Cavs.

Karasev is averaging 4.0 points and not much else this season, and it's not clear if he would replace Alan Anderson in the starting lineup if he were to play. Bojan Bogdanovic and Alan Anderson would see extended minutes if Karsev is unavailable, but none of these guys make for an attractive in standard leagues.
Dec 19 - 11:19 AM

Sergey Karasev (oblique) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. Cleveland.

Alan Anderson started the last game that Karasev was sidelined, and would likely draw another start on Friday if he's unable to go. Bojan Bogdanovic would also see increased minutes, but neither Bojan nor Anderson can be considered viable options in standard leagues.
Dec 18 - 5:38 PM

Sergey Karasev (left oblique) will not play in Wednesday's game vs. the Raptors.

He is dealing with a strained left oblique and it is unclear when he will return to action. He matched his career-high of 11 points before leaving the game Tuesday, and he had started to come alive in the starting lineup for the Nets. However, owners in deepr leagues can now look elsewhere with this news, and we can expect Bojan Bogdanovic and Alan Anderson to benefit the most.
Dec 17 - 12:20 PM

Sergey Karasev (sore left side) will not return to Tuesday's game vs. the Heat, finishing with 11 points, three boards, three assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

He was seen getting looked at on the sidelines before making his way back to the locker room, and it is unclear how severe the injury is. Karasev just recently moved into the starting lineup for the Nets, and has emerged as a decent option in deeper leagues. We should know more about his status shortly, but if he misses any time Bojan Bogdanovic and Alan Anderson will both benefit.
Dec 16 - 10:03 PM

Sergey Karasev started again for Brooklyn on Saturday, but struggled mightily by scoring just three points to go with one assist, one board, one steal and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

He had a decent game on Friday against the 76ers in which he scored 11 points in 28 minutes, but he disappeared against the Hornets and couldn't get anything going. However, as long as he is starting he will be worth monitoring in deeper leagues, but he is still a long ways away from standard league consideration.
Dec 13 - 10:43 PM

Sergey Karasev played well against the 76ers on Friday during a start with 11 points, two rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

He's outplaying Bojan Bogdanovic right now and is taking his minutes. Karasev still has a lot of work to do in order to climb into the conversation in standard leagues and is only on the radar in very deep leagues.
Dec 13 - 12:32 AM

The Nets will start Deron Williams, Sergey Karasev, Joe Johnson, Kevin Garnett and Mason Plumlee against the 76ers on Friday.

Karasev has passed Bojan Bogdanovic on the depth chart for now and it could stick unless Bogdanovic turns it around. Of course, this news only concerns owners in extremely deep leagues.
Dec 12 - 6:44 PM

Sergey Karasev started at small forward for the Nets on Wednesday but hit just 3-of-8 shots for six points, six rebounds and a steal in 31 minutes.

He was 0-of-3 from downtown and had played a total of 35 minutes on the season coming in. He did score 11 on Monday, so just put him on your radar in case they stick with him.
Dec 10 - 11:38 PM

Sergey Karasev will start against the Bulls on Wednesday.

It's unclear if the owner had an influence on the Russian starting tonight. Karasev has been on the court for just 35 minutes on the year, but he had a nice 11-point game on Monday. He'll need to stay hot to remain in the lineup, but he's not a fantasy option in most leagues.
Dec 10 - 6:58 PM

The Nets could deal Sergey Karasev to the 76ers.

He's not playing for the Nets and there's a decent chance he'll get playing time with the 76ers. Karasev is still not very talented, so he would only be a speculative add in a ridiculously deep league. The Nets are hoping to land a trade exception in the deal.
Nov 21 - 4:22 PM

Sergey Karasev will be inactive for the Nets on Sunday.

Karasev likely won't have a large enough role in Brooklyn to matter in most formats, so he can safely be ignored in almost all leagues.
Nov 9 - 1:55 PM

The Nets have picked up their team option on F Sergey Karasev.

Karasev will serve as emergency depth for the Nets as the teams' fourth-string small forward, but he's useless from a fantasy perspective.
