Caris LeVert posted 16 points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals in 30 minutes as a starter on Sunday.

LeVert made 5-of-9 FGs and 6-of-9 FTs, while committing four turnovers, and he could have played more minutes if it weren't for foul trouble. The Nets pulled out a 116-104 win vs. Atlanta tonight and LeVert looked good with the starting unit -- coach Kenny Atkinson is still piecing things together with Jeremy Lin (knee) done for the season, but it looks like LeVert will emerge with reliable standard-league value.

Jarrett Allen played well in limited minutes off the bench on Sunday, finishing with four points, four boards and four blocks in just 15 minutes of floor time.

Allen played with great energy off the bench, and he managed to rack up his four blocks in just six minutes through the first half, including a highlight-reel swat when he switched onto Dennis Schroder (link below). With Timofey Mozgov being a step slow in the first unit and Quincy Acy starting to play more minutes at the four, Allen could realistically work his way into the starting five sooner than expected. He’s one of the more attractive stashes out there with his enormous upside in the shot blocking department, and now he looks to have some standalone value in deeper leagues.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson was limited by foul trouble during Sunday's win over Atlanta, registering nine points, seven rebounds, one steal and one turnover in 19 minutes of action.

Hollis-Jefferson had a minor ankle tweak during the first quarter, but he only missed a handful of minutes and didn’t look any worse for the wear, so we doubt this will be something that causes him to miss any games. He’s been solid through the first two games of the season, so we'd expect a bit of a bounce-back performance on Tuesday in Orlando.
Oct 22 - 7:20 PM

DeMarre Carroll had a well-rounded game during Sunday's win over the Hawks, registering 17 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and two turnovers in 28 minutes.

Carroll finally looks healthy, and he’s a much better fit in Brooklyn’s ball-movement system as opposed to the iso-ball marathon he went through during his time in Toronto. Through the first three games of the year he’s compiled averages of 14.7 points, 6.7 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.7 steals, 2.0 triples, 0.7 swats and just 1.7 turnovers per contest, which has been good enough for top-55 value in 9-cat leagues. The Junk Yard Dog might be back, so he's worth owning everywhere.
Oct 22 - 7:17 PM

Allen Crabbe played well off the bench on Sunday, racking up 20 points, four 3-pointers, five boards, one steal, one block and one turnover in 26 minutes of floor time.

Crabbe knows that when he’s working with the second unit, his role is to come in and aggressively search for buckets, and that’s exactly what he did today, immediately spurring a 9-0 run when he entered the game. Crabbe has also been very nice on the defensive end this year, contributing 1.0 steal and 1.0 block per contest, and he looks all set up for a career-year as one of the main pieces to the rebuild in Brooklyn. Make sure he's not floating around on your waiver wire.
Oct 22 - 7:12 PM

D'Angelo Russell notched his fourth-career double-double during Sunday's win over the Hawks, tallying 16 points, 10 assists, seven boards, one steal, one triple and four turnovers in 29 minutes.

Russell did an excellent job of getting his teammates involved early, working within the flow of the game, and locking up Dennis Schroder on the defensive end. He also hit a dagger 3-pointer with under two minutes to go to put Brooklyn up by 10, and D-Lo becoming a killer in the clutch has been a fun thing to watch this season. He’s hit the ground running, and has an excellent chance of finishing the year with top-40 value in 9-cat leagues.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (ankle) has returned to Sunday's game.

RHJ missed a handful of minutes as he got checked out in the locker room after a very minor ankle tweak, but he's fine. We'll let you know how he did after the game.
Oct 22 - 4:06 PM

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson appeared to tweak his ankle and he's headed back to the locker room.

Hollis-Jefferson was sporting a slight limp on his way back to the locker room, but it didn't look all that serious and he was able to make his way to the back unassisted. We should have another update shortly, stay tuned.
Oct 22 - 3:51 PM

Allen Crabbe will come off the bench for Sunday's game against the Hawks.

Caris LeVert will be replacing Crabbe in the starting five tonight, and head coach Kenny Atkinson indicated that he's making this move to help monitor Crabbe's minutes as he works his way back from the ankle injury. Still, he has a bit more freedom to fire up shots when working with the second unit, so him operating in a reserve role isn't necessarily a bad thing for his fantasy value.
Oct 22 - 2:53 PM

Caris LeVert will enter the starting five for Sunday's game against the Hawks, sending Allen Crabbe back to the bench.

The Nets will roll out a starting five featuring D'Angelo Russell, LeVert, DeMarre Carroll, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Timofey Mozgov in this one, and the starter designation makes LeVert an intriguing DFS option. Crabbe has actually played better with the second unit this season, and he should still see quality minutes regardless of how he enters the game, so he doesn't necessarily lose value in a bench role.

Isaiah Whitehead will be inactive for Sunday's matchup with the Hawks.

Whitehead should have an opportunity to eventually get into the rotation with Jeremy Lin (knee) going down, but for now, he's irrelevant in all leagues.
Oct 22 - 2:10 PM

The Nets announced that Jeremy Lin had successful surgery Friday morning to repair the ruptured patella tendon in his right knee and will miss the rest of the season.

Fortunately, Lin is expected to make a full recovery and should be fully healed by the start of training camp next October. It is still a brutal blow for the Nets. Among all returning players on the Nets roster from last season, Lin had the highest scoring average, assists, steals, PER and Win Shares per-48 minutes. Lin can opt out of his contract and become an unrestricted free agent next summer, but will now likely pick up his $12.5 player option for the 2018-19 season.

D'Angelo Russell came through in the clutch during a 126-121 win over the Magic on Friday, scoring 17 points with three rebounds, six assists, three steals and eight turnovers in 25 minutes.

Hip-hop fans may know about Brooklyn's own M.O.P. with their classic "Cold As Ice", but now it looks like BK has a point guard that is just as cold when the game is on the line. Russell came through late with six consecutive Nets points in the last three minutes to help earn the win. While those turnovers have to come down, Russell is off to a very good start on his new team and he knows it. "The time is now," he said. Russell looks like a breakout candidate.
Oct 21 - 2:00 AM

Allen Crabbe scored nine points with one rebound, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

He did not se his minutes go up from his 27 on Wednesday. Coach Kenny Atkinson seems to have a lineup for everything, so the Nets having a lead in the fourth quarter is probably why he didn't give Crabbe as much late run as the loss vs. Indiana. Still, Crabbe should be owned in standard leagues.
Oct 21 - 1:49 AM

DeMarre Carroll scored 17 points with eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

Some NFL coaches are known as quarterback whisperers, but coach Kenny Atkinson seems to be the Carroll whisperer. Carroll played well for the Hawks while Atkinson was there and he's being used at both forward spots in this rotation. He looks healthy and is getting a lot of shots, so he should be owned in standard leagues.
