Player News - Nets

Date: Team: Pos:

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, the Wizards have some interest in Bojan Bogdanovic.

The Wizards are looking to upgrade their bench at the deadline and have also been linked to Lou Williams. The Nets are looking for draft picks to speed up their rebuild, and the Wizards "have shown an inclination" to give up a future first-round pick for the right deal. Bogdanovic would surely lose value on a team like the Wizards, but his absence could open the door for Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Caris LeVert to have a larger role in Brooklyn's offense.
Feb 19 - 10:00 AM

Caris LeVert struggled again in Monday's 129-125 loss to Milwaukee, finishing with just two points, four assists, two rebounds and two turnovers in 13 minutes.

This was LeVert's second consecutive dud. He has scored a total of four points on 1-of-9 shooting over the Nets last two contests. The rookie is certainly talented, and he's flashed promise when given playing time, but he needs to start producing in order to make a case for a roster spot in fantasy leagues.
Feb 15 - 11:09 PM

Trevor Booker finished with 18 points (on 7-of-8 shooting), five rebounds, three assists, one steal and three turnovers in Monday's loss to Milwaukee.

Booker was listed as questionable due to a sore knee prior to the contest but looked to be moving well all night. Despite being relegated to the bench and having his minutes reduced a bit this month, Booker is still averaging 13.0 points (on 57.4 percent shooting), 8.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 25.4 minutes over the Nets last six games.
Feb 15 - 11:02 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie scored a season-high 19 points and matched a season-high with eight assists in a defeat to the Bucks on Monday night.

Dinwiddie also chipped in five rebounds, two steals, one 3-pointer and didn't commit a single turnover. This is two impressive performances in a row from Dinwiddie, who scored 17 points and knocked down four 3-pointers on Monday. However, with Jeremy Lin (hamstring) on track to return to the Brooklyn lineup in the Nets first game back after the break, Dinwiddie will be bumped back to the bench and will see his playing time significantly reduced.
Feb 15 - 10:54 PM

Brook Lopez posted a historic stat line in the Nets loss to Milwaukee on Monday night, as he became the first player in NBA history to make at least six 3-pointers and block eight shots in a game.

Lopez scored 36 points on 12-of-20 shooting, including 6-of-10 from 3-point territory. In addition to the eight blocks, he also added four rebounds, one assist and one steal. The eight blocks tie a career-high. Lopez had made a total of three 3-pointers over the first eight years (487 games) of his NBA career. He enters the All-Star break this season having knocked down 90 treys in 51 games.
Feb 15 - 10:09 PM

Trevor Booker (knee) is available to play against the Bucks on Wednesday.

He was questionable for this game due to a sore knee. Booker has been playing well, but he may be slightly limited to allow more minutes for Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. Booker is clearly trending down, but he's still a hold in standard leagues.
Feb 15 - 5:55 PM

Quincy Acy (ankle) will not play Wednesday vs. the Bucks.

This will be the fifth straight game Acy has missed due to the ankle injury. He is averaging just 11.2 minutes in the 12 games he has played for the Nets this season, so the fantasy impact here is minimal. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Justin Hamilton could end up seeing a few extra minutes apiece.
Feb 14 - 6:28 PM

Trevor Booker (knee) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Milwaukee.

Booker has been coming off the bench and playing fewer minutes in February, but has still managed to post respectable numbers. He is averaging 11.4 points, 8.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists through seven games this month. However, a knee issue would only dampen his already decreasing fantasy appeal. If Booker does not play Wednesday, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will see an uptick in playing time.
Feb 14 - 6:27 PM

Coach Kenny Atkinson said he expects Jeremy Lin (hamstring) to play in the Nets first game following the All-Star break.

Brooklyn embarks on an eight-game road trip immediately following the All-Star break. Their first contest is Friday, Feb. 24 at Denver. Lin has not appeared in a game since the day after Christmas. He is obviously injury prone, but Lin did average 13.9 points, 5.8 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 1.3 3-pointers in the 12 games he has played this season. He's worth a stash if you have room on your roster.
Feb 14 - 1:05 PM

Sean Kilpatrick finished with 15 points, six rebounds, three assists and three treys in 25 minutes in Monday's loss to Memphis.

Kilpatrick's up-and-down season continues. He has just five points and four boards on Friday and hadn't scored more than 10 points since Feb. 5, but scored 18 points in consecutive contests prior to that cold streak. It's this unpredictable inconsistently that makes Kilpatrick hard to hold in standard leagues.
Feb 13 - 11:15 PM

Caris LeVert struggled in Monday night's loss to Memphis, finishing with just two points, two assists and two rebounds in 21 minutes.

LeVert was just 1-of-6 from the floor and 0-for-4 from downtown. It was a forgettable night for the rookie, who is working his way back from a knee injury that has slowed his progress. He's a tough player to own at the moment, but his upside over the second half of the season is still intriguing.
Feb 13 - 11:06 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie scored a season-high 17 points, with four treys, three rebounds, one assist and zero turnovers in 29 minutes in Monday's loss to the Grizzlies.

It was a nice bounceback game for Dinwiddie, who was held scoreless on Friday night vs. the Heat. However, coming into Monday, he was averaging just 4.0 points (while shooting 28.6 percent from the floor) and 4.0 assists in the Nets previous four games, so there is no need to grab him off the waiver wire until he consistently earns 25-plus minutes a night.
Feb 13 - 10:59 PM

Brook Lopez needed 18 shots to score 17 points in Brooklyn 112-103 loss to Memphis on Monday.

Lopez was just 7-of-18 from the floor, including 1-of-5 from 3-point territory. Lopez did dish out a team-high five assists, but grabbed just three rebounds and failed to block a shot. Lopez had scored at least 20 points and hauled down at least five boards in each of the Nets five previous contests, so there is no need for Lopez owners to worry about this relatively disappointing performance.
Feb 13 - 10:51 PM

Updating a previous report, Trevor Booker will come off the bench on Monday vs. the Grizzlies.

The Nets listed the wrong starting lineup, so there's nothing to see here. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will continue to start.
Feb 13 - 7:18 PM

The Nets have recalled Chris McCullough for Monday's game vs. the Nets.

He's still not in the rotation, but that should change in the near future. McCullough isn't worth stashing in most leagues yet.
