Sergey Karasev (knee) could return to action in Saturday's game vs. the 76ers.
Karasev has been sidelined since March after recovering from a torn MCL, but his knee has responded well in training camp and hopefully he get can some minutes on Saturday. The Nets have a lot of competition for minutes on the wings, so Karasev isn't worth a look in most leagues yet. Karasev averaged 4.6 points, 2.0 boards, 1.4 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.5 3-pointers in 16.8 minutes per game last season. Oct 10 - 11:57 AM

Sergey Karasev (knee) sat out of the scrimmage portion of practice on Tuesday, but he is expected to scrimmage on Wednesday.

Karasev practiced for two hours straight prior to yesterday's scrimmage, so the Nets are simply being cautious. "I don’t want to do two hard days in the beginning and then have my knee get sore, then take a day off," Karasev said. "Just every day we can build off everything, and go from there." Karasev should be ready for the start of the season, but he has a ton of competition for minutes on the wings and isn't worth drafting in most leagues.

Sergey Karasev (knee) tweeted on Sunday that he's 100 percent ready for training camp.

Karasev's 2014-15 season with the Nets was cut short after he tore his MCL, but he's had ample time to recover and looks to be 100 percent heading into camp. That being said, there's just too much congestion on the wings in Brooklyn for Karasev to have any realistic shot at fantasy value, so he can safely be ignored in all leagues on draft day.
Sep 27 - 5:15 PM

Billy King said on Tuesday that Sergey Karasev (knee) will play this upcoming season.

Karasev should be good for training camp after ending his season early last year with a torn MCL. However, with plenty of depth on the wings in Brooklyn, and an unappealing game for fantasy hoops, there's no reason to draft Karasev in any league.
Sep 22 - 5:45 PM

Sergey Karasev (knee) is expected to return to 5-on-5 workouts this week.

Six-plus months after a torn MCL and dislocated patella, Karasev is just around the corner from a return. We don't expect much from him considering his health, his lack of 3-point shot and the competition for minutes on the wing in Brooklyn.
Sep 14 - 1:09 PM

Sergey Karasev (knee surgery) dunked for the first time on Tuesday, and teammate Willie Reed tweeted that Karasev is "close" to returning.

He was expected to resume on-court activity in August so it appears that he's on schedule, leaving him probable for training camp. The Nets have until Oct. 31 to pick up Karasev's $2.5 million option for the 2016-17 season, a reasonable salary for the 21-year-old SF. From a fantasy perspective, Karasev can be ignored on draft day -- he shot under 30 percent beyond the arc last season and faces too much competition from Joe Johnson, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Bojan Bogdanovic and Wayne Ellington.

Sergey Karasev (knee) said that he should be ready for full-contact scrimmaging in August.

Karasev wasn't ready in time to play in Eurobasket with Russia, but the extra time off will only speed up his recovery. He averaged 4.6 points, 2.0 boards, 1.4 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.5 3-pointers in 16.8 minutes per game last season, so he won't be on the fantasy radar unless he earns a larger role during training camp.

Sergey Karasev (knee) will not play for Russia during Eurobasket.

Karasev is still recovering from knee surgery, but the good news is that he is still on course to be ready for training camp. He averaged 4.6 points, 2.0 boards, 1.4 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.5 3-pointers in 16.8 minutes per game last season, but he won't be an option in standard leagues unless he carves out a bigger role in Brooklyn.
Aug 5 - 9:45 AM

Sergey Karasev worked out on Sunday for the first time since having knee surgery in March.

Doctors told Karasev that he might not be game-ready until "the end of August or mid-September," so he still has a long way to go in his rehab. The good news is that he should be ready for training camp and there's no doubt he'll be available on opening night.
Jul 5 - 4:24 PM

Sergey Karasev's rehab from his March knee surgery could keep him from basketball activities until around September.

"It is difficult to give an accurate forecast," Karasev said. "Doctors say it could be the end of August and mid-September. We need to see how the knee reacts to the load. The main thing we are gradually moving towards this goal, and I feel the progress."

Sergey Karasev (knee) said that he won't rule out playing for Russia during Eurobasket this summer and that it all depends on his rehab.

Karasev had surgery to repair a dislocated patella and a torn MCL in his right knee in March, and he is still targeting a return to contact basketball in August (Eurobasket begins in September). It is highly unlikely that he ends up playing for Russia and it should also be noted that he was seen walking with a slight limp this week while practicing free throws. Regardless of what happens, Karasev should be ready to go by training camp.
Jun 3 - 11:05 AM

Sergey Karasev (knee) said he's working hard to prep for what he hopes will be a big 2015-16 season.

Karasev said his surgically-repaired MCL is progressing well and is hoping to have a breakout season in what will be his third year in the NBA. "This year, I felt that there was progress, getting playing time, being in the starting five for a month and a half and feeling that I could safely play in this league," the 21-year-old said. "Then it so happened that I went back to the bench, and then came this injury. I think I made gains this season. All the same if you play in this league, it is not possible to deteriorate, because everything here is top notch." While Karasev showed flashes in his second NBA season, he'll need to earn more consistent minutes before he lands on standard league fantasy radars.

Sergey Karasev (knee) is targeting a return to contact basketball in August.

He is still not running yet from his surgery last month. Karasev hopes to be able to travel with the team for summer league, but he won't be playing. He's unlikely to be in the rotation.
May 1 - 5:36 PM

Sergey Karasev will miss the remainder of the 2014-15 season after undergoing surgery Thursday, but he is expected to be ready for training camp next season.

"Sergey underwent successful right knee surgery to repair damage that occurred in association with a patellar dislocation on Thursday night," read a statement released by Dr. Riley Williams III. "The surgery included the removal of several loose bodies as well as the repair of the medial patella femoral ligament and the medial collateral ligament. A full recovery is anticipated, and he is expected to be ready for training camp next season."

Sergey Karasev underwent surgery to repair his dislocated patella and torn MCL on Thursday.

While the Nets have yet to release an official timetable on Karasev, it's safe to assume he will miss the remainder of the 2014-15 season. Karasev posted a photo to his Instagram account post-surgery with the caption "long rehab ahead," and we wish him the best in his road to recovery.
