Sergey Karasev (illness) is available to play against the Wizards.

He was sick on Thursday and will come off the bench. Bojan Bogdanovic has played well lately, so the minutes won't be there for Karasev.
Jan 16 - 5:28 PM

Sergey Karasev (illness) missed shootaround, and he will be a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Wizards.

Karasev's minutes have been trending down lately, and he only played 2.4 minutes during his last outing, so his absence from the lineup wouldn't mean much with regards to fantasy.
Jan 16 - 11:31 AM

Sergey Karasev played 11 minutes off the bench on Saturday with two points, one rebound and one assist.

The Russian swingman just didn't do enough in the starting lineup. Karasev probably won't get another chance, so his fantasy value is trending down for those owners in ridiculously deep leagues.
Jan 10 - 10:14 PM

Sergey Karasev scored seven points on 3-of-5 shooting (including a three) with four rebounds, five assists and one steal over 34 minutes in another start on Friday.

Karasev has had serviceable games here or there but hasn't been able to string anything of value together. That said, this versatility bodes well for his future if he can continue to take steps forward. Just watch him for now.
Jan 2 - 9:52 PM

Sergey Karasev hit 1-of-5 shots for five points, five boards, three assists and two steals over 30 minutes in Monday's win over the Kings.

Karasev had been providing some low-end production best suited for deeper leagues and tonight's output slows the roll on that. If he heats up we'll let you know.

Sergey Karasev scored seven points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Celtics on Friday.

He has played 29.3 minutes per game in his previous seven starts, averaging 9.1 points, 3.1 boards, 1.7 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.9 treys. Karasev is nowhere near being on the radar in standard leagues, but he's a watch-list guy in deep leagues.

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.

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.
Fri, Dec 19, 2014 06:46:00 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.
Fri, Dec 19, 2014 06:08:00 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.
Fri, Dec 19, 2014 11:19:00 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.

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.
Wed, Dec 17, 2014 12:20:00 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.
Tue, Dec 16, 2014 10:03:00 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.
