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

Date:

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.
Oct 1 - 12:52 PM

Sergey Karasev is happy that he was traded to the Nets.

"I want to prove to everyone that I just don't happen to be in the league," said Karasev, who spent most of last season in the D-League. "I loved Cleveland, but the move to Brooklyn, I believe, is a positive step. Andrei Kirilenko plays there. There's Mikhail Prokhorov and a lot of Russians. I'm sure I will be comfortable." Karasev will still likely be buried on the bench in Brooklyn, and he's not currently on the fantasy radar in standard leagues.
Jul 27 - 10:36 AM

The Cavaliers traded G/F Sergey Karasev to the Nets in a cap-clearing move on Wednesday.

Karasev's inclusion was more about the math than on-court production, and the 6'7" swingman isn't likely to play more than a bit role under coach Lionel Hollins. After being drafted No. 19 overall in 2013, Karasev averaged only 1.7 points on 34.3 percent shooting a rookie -- lucky for him, Anthony Bennett's spectacular failure deflected most of the criticism away from Karasev.
Jul 9 - 10:56 AM

Sergey Karasev is available in a trade to clear cap space.

He's not going to fetch anything noteworthy and it's all just an attempt clear enough cap space to bring in LeBron James on a max deal. Karasev was a first-round pick last year and finished with averages of 1.7 points, 0.7 boards and 0.3 assists in just 7.1 minutes per game.
Jul 7 - 10:27 AM

The Cavs have assigned guard/forward Sergey Karasev (knee tendinitis) to the D-League.

Through 21 games this season Karasev has averaged seven minutes a game, and 1.8 points. Needless to say, there are no fantasy implications here.

Apr 6 - 9:23 AM

Sergey Karasev (knee tendinitis) will not play vs. the Thunder on Thursday.

This leaves the Cavaliers with nine healthy players, and with Luol Deng (ankle) among the wounded there should be plenty of playing time available for Alonzo Gee as the fill-in starting SF. Karasev won't be worth fantasy owners' attention even when he's completely recovered from his tendinitis.
Mar 20 - 2:21 PM

Sergey Karasev has been recalled from the D-League by the Cavaliers.

Karasev has been effective in his time with the Canton Charge this season, but will likely again serve as emergency depth for the Cavs. The 20-year-old played 20 games with the Cavs this season and has only averaged 1.7 points in 7.3 minutes per game, so it goes without saying that his fantasy value is nonexistent.
Mar 11 - 11:10 AM

Sergey Karasev was recalled by the Cavs for Wednesday game.

He'll serve as emergency depth for the Cavs despite getting some minutes earlier this year. Karasev has no fantasy value and has several holes in his game in his rookie season.
Feb 12 - 6:57 PM

Sergey Karasev will go to the D-League this week for two games with the Canton Charge.

He's only playing 8.9 minutes per game with numerous DNP-CDs along the way. Karasev has no fantasy value.

Sergey Karasev was undressed in his first NBA start in Friday's loss to the Celtics, posting just one point with one steal and one assist in 15 minutes.

Karasev got punished on both ends of the floor and he's simply not ready for the NBA just yet. He's too slow to play shooting guard and he's not strong enough to play small forward.
Sat, Nov 30, 2013 02:46:00 AM

Sergey Karasev will get his first NBA start on Friday.

He's played 20.0 minutes per game, but only scored 5.5 points on 33.3 percent shooting in losses to the Heat and Spurs. Karasev has size at 6'7", but he doesn't really have much of a shot and hasn't really shown he can get penetrate defenses yet. Matthew Dellavedova will move back to the bench.
