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.

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.
Mar 13 - 9:00 AM

Sergey Karasev was diagnosed with a dislocated patella and a torn MCL in his right knee and he will be out indefinitely.

Sadly, this all but assures that his season is over, and we wish him nothing but the best moving forward. Karasev wasn't in the rotation in Brooklyn, so there aren't many fantasy implications here.
Mar 11 - 7:10 PM

Sergey Karasev (knee sprain) will not play vs. the Heat on Wednesday.

The Nets still haven't released a lot of information regarding his injury, but we will be sure to update his status once we know more. Karasev wasn't in the rotation prior to suffering the injury, so it's safe to leave him on the wire in most leagues.
Mar 11 - 1:16 PM

Sergey Karasev (knee) will not travel with the Nets on their upcoming four-game road trip.

The original diagnosis was a sprained knee but he'll have further tests on Wednesday. The injury looked serious and it's not a good sign that he's already been ruled out through Mar. 20, but we'll know more within 24 hours. With Karasev out and both Markel Brown (ankle) and Alan Anderson (tailbone) ailing, there should be copious minutes available for Joe Johnson and Bojan Bogdanovic.
Mar 10 - 10:08 PM

Sergey Karasev was forced to leave Tuesday's game with a right knee injury, and he will not return.

The Nets are calling it a sprained right knee, but Karasev is expected to undergo further tests on Wednesday, at which point we should be able to provide some additional information. The Nets also lost Markel Brown (ankle) and Alan Anderson (tailbone) to injuries tonight, so Bojan Bogdanovic and Jarett Jack could be in line for minutes off the bench on Wednesday vs. the Bucks.
Mar 10 - 9:34 PM

Sergey Karasev (illness) picked up a DNP-CD on Friday even though he was available to play.

Coach Lionel Hollins may have decided to be cautious with Karasev, but his minutes have been declining significantly since being replaced in the starting lineup by Bojan Bogdanovic. Karasev can be dropped in most leagues.
Jan 17 - 9:36 AM

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.
