Sergey Karasev reportedly wants to be traded away from the Nets.

Karasev, who has a played a mere six minutes through the first 12 games of the season for Brooklyn, is unhappy with his lack of playing time and would like to be sent to a better situation. The Nets have already declined his fourth-year option, making it pretty clear that they don't view Karasev as a future piece to the franchise. That being said, it's tough to see Karasev earning meaningful minutes on any NBA team (even the 76ers), so he'll likely be unhappy wherever he winds up.

The Nets will not exercise F Sergey Karasev's 2016-17 contract option, sources told Sheridan Hoops.

Karasev has played a grand total of 2:21 so far this season.
Nov 2 - 11:44 AM

Sergey Karasev (sore right knee) was a partial participant at practice on Saturday.

The Nets have been very cautious with Karasev, but he should be ready to go for the season opener on Wednesday. However, there is a lot of competition for minutes on the wings, and Karasev might not be a big part of the rotation.

Sergey Karasev (sore right knee) sat out Thursday's practice.

Karasev is hoping to be ready for the regular season opener, but he doesn't have much fantasy value after averaging 4.6 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.5 treys in 16.8 minutes per game last season. He can be left on waivers in most fantasy leagues.

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.

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.
Sep 30 - 10:48 AM

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."
