Kevin Garnett will miss his first game of the season on Saturday to get some rest.

KG is averaging 22.8 minutes per game but he exceeded 30 minutes in Wednesday's triple-overtime loss, and it's not surprising to see the Nets give their veteran PF a night off. Mirza Teletovic should start in his place, making him a terrific fill-in fantasy option, with a few more minutes trickling down to Mason Plumlee.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Nets

Joe Johnson scored just eight points on 2-of-5 shooting with one rebound, three assists, one block and one trey in Friday's road win over the Thunder.

Johnson played 52 minutes on Wednesday and drew some versatile Thunder defenders, so it's not too surprising that he ran out of gas. He had been playing a little bit over his head in fantasy leagues prior to tonight, and he should remain in all lineups going forward.
Nov 22 - 12:31 AM

Bojan Bogdanovic missed all five of his field goal attempts and finished with just three points over 24 minutes in Friday's win.

Bogdan had crept into the 12-team standard league discussion but he's still too much of a secondary option in Brooklyn for our tastes. After he shakes off this game, he'll be on the bubble in 14-team leagues.
Nov 22 - 12:29 AM

Mirza Teletovic scored 13 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 6-of-12 shots (including a three) with seven rebounds, one steal and one block in 28 minutes.

Teletovic is returning top 90-115 value (9/8 cat) on the year, averaging 10.8 points with 1.9 treys, 4.8 boards and a 45.6 percent mark from the field. That's easily enough production to be owned in all standard formats, though owners should expect for him to be streaky.
Nov 21 - 11:54 PM

Jarrett Jack scored 23 points on 8-of-15 shooting (1-of-2 from deep, 6-of-7 from the line) with two rebounds and five assists in 31 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Jack had played himself into late-round value earlier this week and now he's starting to give himself some padding. He should be owned in all standard 12-team formats at least until he cools off.
Nov 21 - 11:51 PM

The Nets could deal Sergey Karasev to the 76ers.

He's not playing for the Nets and there's a decent chance he'll get playing time with the 76ers. Karasev is still not very talented, so he would only be a speculative add in a ridiculously deep league. The Nets are hoping to land a trade exception in the deal.
Nov 21 - 4:22 PM

The Sixers and Nets have been in talks to make a deal involving Andrei Kirilenko and Sergey Karasev.

Russian owner Mikhail Prokorov is probably not too thrilled about this. Kirilenko's time in Brooklyn is about done and he will likely be waived by the 76ers. He's not really worth owning in any league.
Nov 21 - 4:16 PM

Andrei Kirilenko (personal) is not traveling with the Nets on their current road trip, and head coach Lionel Hollins doesn't know when/if he'll return.

Kirilenko has completely fallen out of the Nets rotation, and sources are saying the situation may not be resolved until he's on another team. AK-47 isn't worth owning in any league, as most of his season averages fall on the right side of the decimal point, and when he's in uniform there's no guarantee he steps on the court. It's looking like he may have played his last game wearing a Brooklyn jersey.
Nov 21 - 1:13 PM

Deron Williams scored 18 points in a 122-118 triple-overtime loss to the Bucks on Wednesday, adding five boards, seven assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 52 minutes.

The Nets really needed this game and played their guys big minutes, but it didn't work and they now have a five-game losing streak. Williams is playing just fine and has been a top-30 player so far this season. He could be considered as a sell-high guy just because of the injury risk.
Nov 20 - 12:52 AM

Jarrett Jack played 35 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday with 14 points, nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and three turnovers.

That's four games in a row with double-digit scoring since his massive 10-of-10 breakout game on Nov. 13. Jack seems to have carved out minutes in the mid-20s and he's doing a little bit of everything. Fantasy owners in standard leagues can give him a look for some low-end value.
Nov 20 - 12:48 AM

Brook Lopez played 44 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday with 26 points, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal, three blocks and seven turnovers.

His boards matching his turnovers is not good. On the bright side, the high minutes total suggests his foot injury is behind him for now. Lopez has been putting up sixth-round value on the season and he could get better as long as he stays healthy.
Nov 20 - 12:43 AM

Bojan Bogdanovic played a career-high 47 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday with 19 points, seven rebounds and four 3-pointers.

He attempted 11 shots from beyond the arc and was 7-of-16 from the field overall. Bogdanovic is starting to figure the NBA game out and he's now turned in two good games in a row. He's still not doing much outside of scoring, so the upside isn't really there for owners in standard leagues.
Nov 20 - 12:36 AM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Nets

Joe Johnson played 52 minutes on a triple-overtime loss to the Bucks on Wednesday with 18 points, five rebounds, eight assists and one 3-pointer.

He had a couple chances to win the game late, but it looked like all the minutes may have caused his shot to fall short. Johnson's shooting numbers are starting to come down, but he's still posting mid-round value. Keep him in your lineup.
Nov 20 - 12:33 AM

Jason Collins has announced his retirement from the NBA in a press release on Wednesday.

After averaging 1.1 points and 0.9 rebounds for the Nets last season, it is clear that his age has simply caught up to him and we will no longer see him play in the NBA. After becoming the first openly gay athlete in the league, he will continue to serve as an NBA Cares Ambassador.
Nov 19 - 9:47 AM

Nets' head coach Lionel Hollins said he was in no mood to talk about Brook Lopez after Monday's loss to the Heat.

Lopez has recently said he feels slow and it's showing on the court. The big man continued his recent struggles on Monday as he scored just five points on 2-of-8 shooting with one rebound, one steal, and one block in 22 minutes. "I don't want to talk about Brook right now," Hollins said after the game. "I just don't want to go there right now. It's not a good time for me." His owners have no choice but to hang on to the 26-year-old, but Lopez belongs on fantasy benches for now.
