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.
Oct 24 - 2:29 PM

Sergey Karasev, who has been out with a foot injury, played two minutes and failed to score for the Nets on Tuesday.

We're taking him off the injury report, but there's no reason to think about drafting him this season.
Oct 8 - 1:48 AM

Sergey Karasev (foot) returned to practice on Saturday.

He had sat out both Wednesday and Thursday's practice with a sore right foot, so a return to practice on Saturday was a step in the right direction. Karasev is unlikely to become a rotation player during his first season with the Nets, and he can safely be ignored on draft day in all leagues.
Oct 5 - 11:30 AM

Sergey Karasev (foot) missed practice again on Thursday.

He missed practice on Wednesday and doesn't have a timetable to return. Karasev won't be making the rotation this season.
Oct 2 - 8:49 PM

Nets F Sergey Karasev (sore right foot) sat out Wednesday's practice.

This sounds like a precautionary absence, and coach Lionel Hollins has already given days of rest to Deron Williams, Kevin Garnett and Brook Lopez. There's too much competition at SF in Brooklyn to give Karasev a second thought in fantasy leagues.
