Coach Kenny Atkinson said Jarrett Allen's minutes will go up "if he keeps playing well."

He played a career-high 24 minutes on Friday and even played down the stretch. Allen's per-minute numbers have dropped a tad, but he still has 2.1 blocks per 36 minutes and his fouls are coming down. With the Nets likely done with Timofey Mozgov and really just Tyler Zeller as Allen's main obstacle, it makes sense to add Allen in competitive leagues.

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 23 points with four rebounds, six assists, one block, one steal, four 3-pointers and no turnovers in 31 minutes during a 127-125 loss to the Blazers on Friday.

The zero turnovers is impressive and he almost hit a would-be, game-winning triple, but it was short after the Nets got off to a fast start today. Besides an eight-point dud on Wednesday, Dinwiddie has been cooking with gas over his last four with three 21-plus scoring games to go with some full stat lines, averaging 19.3 points, 3.0 boards, 8.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 3.5 treys on 46.3 percent from the field over those four. He should be a difference maker in all leagues for the next month and possibly beyond.

Trevor Booker (ankle) returned off the bench on Friday with 10 points, eight rebounds, two assists and one block in 20 minutes against the Blazers.

After the Nets used him as more of a center, they went with him as more of a four man in this game. Jarrett Allen looking good and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson having a career year has pushed Booker to the background, but he should find a way to get around 20-24 minutes most nights. Considering the pace of the Nets, he could still have some value as long as he avoids the DNPs.

Joe Harris - G/F - Nets

Joe Harris handed out a career-high five assists against the Blazers on Friday, adding 13 points, two rebounds and three 3-pointers.

He's been under the radar, but Harris is having himself a nice season. He said his goal is to make 40 percent from deep this year, but he's just a shade behind at 38.4 percent. He's also coming off a revenge-filled 18-point game against the Cavs, so he could be a sneaky deep-league play until D'Angelo Russell gets back.
Nov 24 - 2:36 PM

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored 17 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 30 minutes against the Blazers on Friday.

He's coming in fairly hot on offense with a 20-point game on Wednesday. The return of Trevor Booker didn't really affect RHJ too much and once again coach Kenny Atkinson used Hollis-Jefferson at the five today. Not having D'Angelo Russell (knee) around likely explains the slight uptick in scoring, but RHJ is headed for a career year as he flirts with top-50 value.
Nov 24 - 2:28 PM

Jarrett Allen played a career-high 24 minutes against the Blazers on Friday, scoring nine points with eight rebounds, one block and two steals.

He made an impact yet again and he played down the stretch in this tight game. Allen has been the best pure center on the roster and he's meshed nicely with the up-tempo style of coach Kenny Atkinson. While the Nets do sit guys out if they're 99 percent, Allen's upside is undeniable for blocks and he's seen his minutes increase in each of his last two games. If you're hunting for blocks, Allen is worth a look in standard leagues.
Nov 24 - 2:26 PM

Caris LeVert scored 14 points with six rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes against the Blazers on Friday.

He's getting some decent backup point guard minutes and he's also found his shot recently. Over his last five games, LeVert averaged 12.2 points, 4.4 boards, 3.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.4 treys on 54.5 percent from the field. LeVert can probably hang around these averages until D'Angelo Russell (knee) gets back, so LeVert is worth a look in standard leagues.
Nov 24 - 2:24 PM

Trevor Booker (left ankle) is available to play Friday vs. the Blazers.

Tyler Zeller will draw another start at center on Friday. Booker, who was sidelined on Wednesday, will split minutes off the bench with Quincy Acy and Jarrett Allen.

The agent for Timofey Mozgov said the Nets informed him they planned to rest Mozgov, whom they felt was worn down from the FIBA European championships this summer.

Mozgov played in a total of 20 games (11 of them were "friendlies") this summer. The hope is that added rest will help Mozgov gain strength and improve his conditioning. Mozgov has been a DNP-CD for three straight games. Even when he was fully healthy and starting, Mozgov played more than 18 minutes just once this season. Despite his hefty salary, Mozgov won't play significant minutes for the Nets anytime soon. He should be left on the waiver wire.
Nov 24 - 9:23 AM

Trevor Booker (left ankle) is probable for Friday's matinee game with the Blazers.

We get a Friday game at noon EST and we should have more info on Booker at about 10:30 in the morning. He did not play on Wednesday despite what looked like a minor ankle issue. If he's back, that could mean Tyler Zeller moves from a Wednesday starter to out of the rotation. Jarrett Allen could still be in the mix, but it's not certain.
Nov 23 - 7:06 PM

Allen Crabbe followed up Sunday's 25-point game with 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting, three 3-pointers, four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 30 minutes.

Crabbe is starting to find a groove after a slow start to the season. "Just being more aggressive," he said, explaining the improvement. "I don’t think I’m thinking too much ... I’m just letting it flow." He's boosted himself into top-100 value on the season, thanks largely to his play over the past five games -- 14.8 points, 3.2 triples, 4.8 boards, 2.2 assists and 0.8 steals. There's no reason why he can't keep it up.
Nov 22 - 9:56 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie chipped in eight points, 10 assists, one rebound, one steal, one block and a pair of 3-pointers during a road loss vs. the Cavs on Wednesday.

D'Angelo Russell (knee surgery) is out indefinitely, and Jeremy Lin (knee) is already done for the season, which means Dinwiddie should be owned in all but the shallowest leagues. We were hoping for more scoring tonight, since Jose Calderon was defending him, but the 3-pointers and defensive stats make it a decent line for roto.
Nov 22 - 9:55 PM

Jarrett Allen came off the bench for six points, four rebounds, two assists and one block in 19 minutes on Wednesday, making 3-of-3 field goals with one turnover.

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said recently that the 19-year-old Allen can only play "15, 20 [minutes] max" right now. He's working his way back from a recent foot injury, while navigating the rigors of an NBA season, but we do expect the rebuilding Nets to eventually feed him minutes late in the season. He's a nice stash option in deep leagues, but most owners can just keep an eye on him.

DeMarre Carroll was quiet in 35 minutes on Wednesday, finishing with 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting (0-of-6 from deep), five rebounds and one assist.

Kenny Atkinson recently praised Carroll's leadership on this young Nets team. "He’s been the guy not playing, he’s been in the G-League, he’s experienced that," Atkinson said. "Those guys can relate to him [and] he can relate to them. He’s kind of a rags-to-riches story." Carroll spent a lot of his energy defending LeBron James tonight, and the minutes were there, so he deserves a pass.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored a team-high 20 points on 8-of-11 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs on Wednesday, adding six boards, two assists and one turnover in 25 minutes.

RHJ came in as the Nets' leading scorer among healthy players, at 14.3 points per game, which says plenty about Brooklyn's injury woes. He'll continue to handle the ball more now that D'Angelo Russell (knee) is out indefinitely, and has been a very pleasant surprise for owners who rolled the dice on draft day. Among other highlights, he's scored 20+ points three times this season after doing it just twice before in his career.
