Joe Harris (shoulder) will not play on Thursday against the Suns.

The Nets are not revealing too much on Harris. He could be out for a little while longer as he recovers from his sprained shoulder.

Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) will not play against the Suns on Thursday.

This will be his fifth game out of the lineup. The Nets have taken a look at K.J. McDaniels lately, giving him 21 minutes on Tuesday with 11 points. Archie Goodwin has also got some run, but these two are tough to own in most leagues. Caris LeVert should also benefit.

Jeremy Lin (ankle) is probable to play against the Suns on Thursday.

His Sunday ankle sprain looks like it's only going to cost him one game. With Lin back, Spencer Dinwiddie and Isaiah Whitehead will be losing minutes. Lin is probably worth owning, but the Nets may take it easy on him to get a look at their younger guards.
Mar 22 - 4:57 PM

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said he is "hopeful" that Jeremy Lin (ankle) will be able to play Thursday vs. the Suns.

Atkinson said the decision on Lin would be made on Thursday. Even if Lin is able to suit up, he will likely be placed on a strict minutes limit. Nonetheless, Lin's return will greatly reduce the fantasy value of Spencer Dinwiddie and Archie Goodwin.
Mar 22 - 1:50 PM

K.J. McDaniels played 21 minutes and hit 4-of-8 shots and two 3-pointers for 11 points, two rebounds and a block in Tuesday's win.

He hadn't scored more than nine points in a game since Nov. 5 and didn't exactly kill it tonight, so there's no reason to move on him. But with the Nets having nothing to play for, anything is possible over the last few weeks of the season.
Mar 21 - 10:49 PM

Isaiah Whitehead played 28 minutes off the bench on Tuesday and hit 2-of-9 shots for seven points, four rebounds, two assists and a block.

Whitehead has scored eight or fewer points in four of his last five games and the starting job officially belongs to Spencer Dinwiddie, while Jeremy Lin is currently out with an ankle injury. Whitehead's worth keeping an eye on right now, but that's about it. He was outplayed by Aaron Goodwin, who hit 5-of-10 shots for 10 points, five boards, three assists and two blocks in just 18 minutes. In addition to Lin creating some extra minutes for Whitehead, the absence of Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) also works in his favor.

Caris LeVert started, played 25 minutes and hit 5-of-8 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, two rebounds, one assist and a steal in Tuesday's 98-96 win over the Pistons.

LeVert had scored just five points in each of his previous two games, so it was nice to see him get his scoring back on track tonight. But he's averaging just 10.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 1.4 3-pointers on 49 percent shooting over his last five games. He's a borderline player in 12-team leagues right now and is still going to be iffy in back-to-back sets. However, he did play in both games last Thursday and Friday, and may do so again when the Nets play the Suns and Wizards this Thursday and Friday. Watch for updates to make sure he's playing in both of those games if you plan on using him.
Mar 21 - 10:38 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie, who will start at point guard the rest of the way for the Nets, hit 3-of-9 shots for 10 points, eight rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 30 minutes.

Jeremy Lin sat this one out with a sprained ankle and Dinwiddie is worth a look in most leagues, now that we know he's going to start. But don't expect monster numbers from him and look for both Lin and Isaiah Whitehead to steals some of his minutes going forward. Dinwiddie did have 18 points and seven dimes in his previous game, so it's not unreasonable to think that he'll play better than he did in this one on most nights.
Mar 21 - 10:34 PM

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson hit just 2-of-7 shots for four points and four rebounds in 27 minutes of Tuesday's 98-96 win over the Pistons.

He's struggling over his last three, hitting just 7-of-20 shots and averaging 6.7 points and 6.0 rebounds. As long as he's starting, he's worth a look, but for now, he's not a huge part of what the Nets are trying to do offensively.
Mar 21 - 10:31 PM

Brook Lopez hit 13-of-24 shots, including the game-winning jumper at the buzzer, and three more 3-pointers for 29 points, seven rebounds and one assist in 33 minutes of Tuesday's 98-96 win over the Pistons.

Bro-Lo came through in a meaningless game for the Nets, while the Pistons dropped to 1.0 games behind the Heat for the final playoff spot in the East. Lopez passed Mike Gminski for No. 2 on the Nets' games-played list with 551 and now only trails Buck Williams for the top spot. Williams is also the Nets' career points leader, and Lopez also sits behind him in that category.
Mar 21 - 10:28 PM

Kenny Atkinson praised Archie Goodwin and KJ McDaniels on Tuesday and said they would "get some opportunities" in Tuesday's contest vs. the Pistons.

With Jeremy Lin (ankle) ruled out, Spencer Dinwiddie will draw the start but Goodwin will likely see extra minutes off the Nets bench. Archie made his Nets debut on Sunday and played 14 minutes after Lin had to leave the game due to the ankle issue. Goodwin could see 15-plus minutes on Tuesday. However, with Dinwiddie starting and playing the lion's share of minutes, Goodwin still belongs on waivers. McDaniels is averaging 17.5 mpg and that could continue to rise.
Mar 21 - 6:08 PM

Jeremy Lin (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Pistons.

Lin was doubtful heading into this one, so it's not surprising at all to see the oft-injured guard hit the sidelines. Head coach Kenny Atkinson has already said that Spencer Dinwiddie will close out the year as Brooklyn's starting point guard, so Lin figures to lose some value once he's eventually cleared as he'll be confined to a reserve role. Brook Lopez should be more active on offense with Lin watching from the sidelines. Atkinson did say that Lin is "trending positive" when asked about Lin's injury situation, but at this point in the season, we wouldn't recommend clinging to injured players.
Mar 21 - 5:50 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie is looking to secure a role with the Nets next season and beyond.

Dinwiddie's contract has a team option for the 2017-18 season and he hoping the Nets pick it up. He started the second half for Jeremy Lin (ankle) on Sunday and finished with 18 points, seven assists and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes. Coach Kenny Atkinson said that Dinwiddie would continue to start if Lin (ankle) is unable to suit up. Dinwiddie is averaging 8.3 points, 3.1 rebounds and 3.6 assists in the 16 starts he has made this season.
Mar 21 - 10:47 AM

Joe Harris (shoulder) will not play Tuesday vs. the Pistons.

Harris hasn't played since March 3, and it's unclear exactly when he'll be able to return to the court. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 20 - 4:54 PM

Sean Kilpatrick (left hamstring) and Joe Harris (shoulder) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Pistons.

With both these guys set to spend Tuesday night on the sidelines, and Jeremy Lin (ankle) looking unlikely, Brook Lopez will be tasked with the heavy lifting on offense, and there will be more minutes available for guys like Caris LeVert and K.J. McDaniels. LeVert could be someone to consider using as a streamer on Tuesday.
