Player News - Nets

Date: Team: Pos:

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) went through shooting drills on Tuesday, but is not yet practicing fully with the team.

Coach Kenny Atkinson told reporters that Jeremy Lin is progressing each day and that Lin is 'anxious' to return, but the team has still yet to set a timetable. Lin has now missed 15 games due to the hamstring strain. Unfortunately, Lin owners will need to remain patient and hope for good news soon. Isaiah Whitehead will continue to start in place of Lin, but Sean Kilpatrick remains the player to own.

Brook Lopez scored 25 points with six rebounds in Monday's loss to the Wizards.

Bro-Lo shot an efficient 8-of-15 from the field with five assists, two triples and three blocks in 31 minutes. This was just his fourth game on the season in which he eclipsed the 30-minute mark, but the Nets are simply monitoring his workload in a rebuilding season. The Nets don't have a back-to-back set until Dec. 22, so his owners hopefully don't have to worry about any maintenance days for a couple weeks.
Dec 5 - 11:15 PM

Sean Kilpatrick scored 21 points on 8-of-12 shooting vs. the Wizards on Monday.

He played a team-high 33 minutes with six rebounds, four assists, one steal, two treys and two turnovers. Kilpatrick has been on a tear over his last five games with averages of 22.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.4 3-pointers on 46.3 percent shooting. He should be a lot of fun to own until Jeremy Lin (hamstring) is finally able to return.
Dec 5 - 11:09 PM

Trevor Booker (illness) returned from a one-game absence in Monday's 118-113 loss to the Wizards and double-doubled with 14 points and 14 rebounds.

He didn't miss a beat, shooting 6-of-9 from the field with one assist, one steal, two blocks and four turnovers in 31 minutes. Booker has been a stud all season and his owners should be pumped that his minutes are safe following the news that the Rockets matched the Nets offer for restricted free agent Donatas Motiejunas.
Dec 5 - 11:04 PM

Trevor Booker (illness) is starting vs. the Wizards on Monday, as expected.

Anthony Bennett will move to the bench. Booker only missed one game and there's no word of any limitations. He's been one of the biggest surprises of the season and the good news is that the Rockets matched Brooklyn's offer for Donatas Motiejunas.
Dec 5 - 6:44 PM

Trevor Booker (illness) will play on Monday vs. the Wizards.

Booker missed Saturday's game but is ready to roll on Monday. He has been quietly consistent and productive all season. Booker is averaging career-highs in points (10.4), rebounds (8.3), steals (2.1), and assists (2.4), while shooting well above his career marks from the field and the free throw line. Anthony Bennett started on Saturday but will be relegated back to the bench (and fantasy obscurity) on Monday.
Dec 5 - 11:37 AM

Yogi Ferrell has been assigned to the D-League.

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) will not play on Monday vs. the Wizards, so this isn't a related move. However, it's possible that this means Caris LeVert (foot) will see his first action as a Brooklyn Net this week.
Dec 5 - 11:06 AM

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Wizards.

Monday will be Lin's 15th consecutive game on the sidelines, and the Nets' haven't given any indication that he's getting close to a return. Isaiah Whitehead will continue to start in his absence, but Sean Kilpatrick remains the primary beneficiary. Lin is worth holding onto in most leagues.

Caris LeVert (foot) will be available to play Monday vs. the Wizards.

The Nets' first-round pick will have the opportunity to make his NBA debut 20 games into the season, but he'll likely be working with a strict minutes limit for his first handful of games. It's too early to stash LeVert in most scenarios.
Dec 4 - 3:52 PM

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson gushed about the recent play of Sean Kilpatrick.

"Sean has a chip, there’s no doubt about it," Atkinson said. "I think there’s an angry chip and a healthy chip, and his is healthy. It’s in a good spirit." The SG is averaging 22.0 points over his last six games with 3.7 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 2.1 treys, and he's also played 27 or more minutes in each of those games. His value will take a hit when Jeremy Lin (hamstring) eventually returns, but he belongs in all standard-league lineups right now.

Sean Kilpatrick made 3-of-13 from the line for 19 points against the Bucks during a 112-103 loss on Saturday, adding one rebound, three assists and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

This is another one of those games where a free throw fest can save the day. Kilpatrick went 12-of-13 from the line tonight, which is the most for a Net since Paul Pierce hit 14 in February 2014. Kilpatrick will likely move to the bench at some point, but he should still have value for how he gets the ball so much. He's a hold.

Joe Harris scored 17 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday.

After never having consecutive NBA games with double-digit scoring output earlier this week, Harris has now done it for three in a row. He actually even subbed in before Rondae Hollis-Jefferson today and may be getting closer to a timeshare with Bojan Bogdanovic than expected. Although, the Nets did go small a bit, so there were more minutes available. He's only a very deep fantasy option, of course.
Dec 3 - 8:07 PM

Bojan Bogdanovic scored 24 points in Milwaukee on Saturday with two rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

He likes to play in Milwaukee this season with a 26-point game coming on Oct. 29. Bogdanovic was able to snap out of a mini slump over his previous for games to turn in his first game over 15 points since Nov. 20. Bogie is also taking more treys with two makes in five of his last six, which wasn't happening as much in November. He's better for points leagues and only has 12th-round value in standard leagues.
Dec 3 - 8:02 PM

Brook Lopez made 3-of-17 from the field for 13 points against the Bucks on Saturday, adding four rebounds, six assists, three blocks, one steal and three 3-pointners in 29 minutes.

He didn't hit his first field goal until there were just 36 seconds left in the third quarter, but he did turn in a season high for dimes. Excluding the wild 43-minute outing in the overtime win over the Clippers on Tuesday, Lopez's minutes have consistently been around 30 this season with a 28 per game average. He's a solid hold and is flirting with early-round value.
Dec 3 - 7:57 PM

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had a typical line against the Bucks on Saturday, scoring five points with nine rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

He hurt his right hand on two different occasions today. Hollis-Jefferson went for a steal and looked to have jammed his fingers, and he also hurt his right hand on the rim later in the game. He was still very aggressive and used both hands on drives after that -- he's a lefty shooter. Expect RHJ to get more run against the Wizards on Monday.
