Allen Crabbe (right knee) is being listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Hawks.

If he's out again, Rodions Kurucs could be looking at another start with a dream matchup against Atlanta, which would put him on the DFS radar. In his first career start on Friday, Kurucs came through with 15 points, six rebounds, one assist and one triple on 83.3% shooting. Stay tuned.
Dec 15 - 3:06 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 27 points during a 126-118 win over the Wizards on Friday, adding four rebounds, six assists and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

He's some story and the Bulls probably shouldn't have cut him for R.J. Hunter. Dinwiddie said he's going to use his new three-year, $34 million deal to help his parents retire, and he looks like he's going to be a bargain. He has now scored in double figures in 23 straight games he's appeared in off the bench, which is the second-longest streak in Nets history (longest streak: 32 straight games for Bubbles Hawkins in the Nets' first season in the NBA, 1976-77). Dinwiddie also leads the NBA in scoring off the bench, and is a must-start player in fantasy.

Rodions Kurucs did not disappoint in his first NBA start against the Wizards on Friday, scoring a career-high 15 points with six rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

His six times were also tied for his best. Kurucs got the start for Allen Crabbe (knee), and before the game coach Kenny Atkinson made it sound like Crabbe was assured of staying in the starting lineup, but Kurucs may put a little extra pressure on the coach. He's still only worth a flier in deeper leagues for now.
Dec 14 - 11:59 PM

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored 15 points with nine rebounds, six assists and one steal in 32 minutes against the Wizards on Friday.

He's finally healthy and he is getting minutes at center again, too. Hollis-Jefferson is going to be at the mercy of the hot-hand approach of Kenny Atkinson, and he does struggle to score at times. However, he does enough in the non-scoring departments to be worth owning in standard leagues.
Dec 14 - 11:50 PM
Joe Harris - G/F - Nets

Joe Harris scored 19 points with two rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Wizards on Friday.

He was free money in DFS today in a favorable matchup with Allen Crabbe (knee) out and LumberJoe came though. Harris has some strong position flexibility as the most consistent shooter on the team, so he should continue to see big minutes in the first unit while healthy. He's a fine hold in standard leagues.
Dec 14 - 11:47 PM

Rodions Kurucs will get his first NBA start against the Wizards on Friday.

Allen Crabbe is not going to play due to a minor knee issue, so coach Kenny Atkinson will reward the rookie for his strong play. He'll be the youngest non-American to get a start for the Nets in franchise history, and he should have a shot at 24 minutes. He's coming off a strong 13-point, three-steal game on Wednesday, so he's an option as a DFS punt tonight. He's not a bad stream either.
Dec 14 - 6:52 PM

Caris LeVert (foot) has been doing some on-court work and is on schedule according to the rehab team.

He is not sprinting yet, so he still has a long way to go in his recovery. The Nets have not shed any light on a possible target date, which is nothing new for them after they weren't doing it for D'Angelo Russell for much of last season. He's expected to be back at some point, but not sprinting yet likely means he's not going to be back until at least January.
Dec 14 - 6:04 PM

Allen Crabbe (knee) will not play Friday against the Wizards.

Coach Kenny Atkinson said Crabbe banged his knee, but is confident it’s a short term issue. Crabbe has been hot and will undoubtedly be back in the starting lineup upon his return, so he is still a hold. For tonight, Spencer Dinwiddie should be in the starting lineup while DeMarre Carroll, Shabazz Napier, Rodions Kurucs and Joe Harris pick up a few extra minutes. Dzanan Musa has also been called up for today.
Dec 14 - 5:59 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie and the Nets have agreed on a three-year, $34 million contract extension.

The third year is a player option and it's a solid deal for both sides, with Dinwiddie emerging as a linchpin of coach Kenny Atkinson's rotation. The timing is perfect, too, since Dinwiddie fresh off scoring a career-high 39 points vs. Philly on Wednesday. There's no reason to think he'll stop providing reliable value for roto owners, at least until Caris LeVert (ankle) gets back on the court.
Dec 13 - 5:17 PM

Allen Crabbe (sore right knee) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Wizards.

Crabbe has had a few minor left knee injuries during his career but this is the first we've heard of his right knee being an issue. We'll know more after Friday's shootaround, but if he can't suit up we'd expect Spencer Dinwiddie and Shabazz Napier to pick up the slack.
Dec 13 - 5:00 PM

DeMarre Carroll scored six points (1-of-5 FTs, 4-of-4 FTs) with seven rebounds and one assist in 22 minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday.

Carroll's been playing low-20s minutes most nights, but has yet to really post any consistent production this season. The veteran was hampered by an early season ankle injury, which cost him the first 11 games of the season. He's not worth owning in most leagues.
Dec 12 - 10:50 PM

D'Angelo Russell scored 12 points (5-of-10 FGs) with seven assists and two 3-pointers against the Sixers on Wednesday.

Russell matched his season-low of 22 minutes on Wednesday, a number his played three times now. The low total didn't really have much to do with how he played as it was mostly because his teammate Spencer Dinwiddie had it rolling and scored a career-high 39. Russell has dished at least five assists in 24 of 29 games this season and is averaging a career-high thus far.
Dec 12 - 10:46 PM
Joe Harris - G/F - Nets

Joe Harris scored 14 points (5-of-9 FTs, 2-of-2 FTs) with one rebound, two assists, one block, and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday.

Harris has put up double-digit points in three of his last four games now. He doesn't offer much outside of threes and points, but he's still worth owning in standard leagues because of his consistent role in the starting lineup.
Dec 12 - 10:33 PM
Ed Davis - F/C - Nets

Ed Davis scored seven points (2-of-4 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs) with 10 rebounds against the 76ers on Wednesday.

Davis played a season-high 30 minutes, while Jarrett Allen saw a season-low 16. Coach Kenny Atkinson chose to roll with Davis because of how he was helping to slow Joel Embiid in the second half. He ended up playing most of the fourth quarter, while Allen didn't leave the bench. However, this is just a one-off instance due to game flow and Davis is just a rebound-specialist in super-deep leagues.
Dec 12 - 10:28 PM

Jarrett Allen scored eight points (3-of-4 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs) with five rebounds and two assists against the 76ers on Wednesday.

Allen played in a season-low 16 minutes and didn't play at all in the fourth quarter. Coach Kenny Atkinson elected to roll with Ed Davis at center because he was having success against Joel Embiid, who scored 23 in the first half and only 10 in the second half. There's no need to worry about Allen, who already has 11 double-doubles on the season.
