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.
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.
Fri, Dec 26, 2014 04:16:00 PM

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.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 12:26:00 AM

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.
