Rondae Hollis-Jefferson failed to score in 14 minutes vs. the Nuggets, going 0-of-6 from the field with three rebounds, one assist, one block and one turnover.

RHJ's offense is a work in progress, to be kind. He's shooting 34.3 percent from the field (27.3 percent from deep) while averaging 2.8 assists vs. 1.5 turnovers. He has interesting rest-of-season potential, as the Nets are likely to turn him loose at some point, but at present he's an anchor in standard formats.

Bojan Bogdanovic sank 8-of-11 shots to finish Wednesday's game with 19 points, one 3-pointer, one rebound and three assists in 34 minutes.

This was Bojan's fourth straight game with at least 13 points and one 3-pointer. That's good news for anyone relying on him, since he offers almost nothing in other categories -- he hasn't blocked a shot since the second game of the season, and he hasn't had a steal since Nov. 15. Bogdanovic tweaked his ankle tonight but he continued to play, so for now we're leaving him off the injury report.
Dec 7 - 11:48 PM

Brook Lopez had a team-high 24 points (7-of-17 FGs, 8-of-10 FTs) with eight rebounds, four assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers during the Nets' home victory on Wednesday.

Lopez helped the Nets pile up 58 points in the paint tonight -- Denver was giving up the seventh-fewest points in that category, but they were terrible in every aspect during a lopsided first half. After a rocky start to the season, complete with precautionary DNP-CDs, BroLo is once again cruising as a top-40 fantasy player.
Dec 7 - 11:47 PM

Caris LeVert (foot) made his NBA debut on Wednesday, coming off the bench with four rebounds and three steals in nine minutes.

LeVert fell to the Nets at No. 20 in this year's draft because of serious injury concerns. He hadn't played in a game since Dec. 20 of last year and Brooklyn will assuredly take every precaution with him -- the 22-year-old guard has had three foot fractures in his brief basketball career. He has intriguing upside for a variety of reasons. He's the first Nets rookie with 3+ steals in his debut since Chris Childs in 1994, coach Kenny Atkinson was raving about him after the game, and the Nets need all the help they can get this season. That said, LeVert is on a strict minute-limit and he's more of a long-term stash at the moment.

Yogi Ferrell (right ankle) was available to play on Wednesday but he didn't leave the Nets bench.

He was a straight DNP-CD tonight. Caris LeVert made his debut tonight and it sounds like Jeremy Lin (hamstring) could be close to playing, which is all the more reason to ignore Ferrell.
Dec 7 - 11:45 PM

Isaiah Whitehead finished Wednesday's blowout win with a career-high 14 points, two 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists, four steals and one block in 29 minutes.

The steals were also a career high for Whitehead, who took advantage of a listless Nuggets defense -- the Nets shot 48.2 percent as a team, with a 58-42 edge in points in the paint. This feels like a fluke against a bad team, and reports that Jeremy Lin (hamstring) is nearing a return make Whitehead an undesirable pickup in standard leagues.
Dec 7 - 11:44 PM

Trevor Booker had another strong performance on Wednesday with 15 points, 12 rebounds, five assists and one steal in 37 minutes.

Booker missed one game due to illness this weekend, but since returning he's averaged 14.5 points, 13.0 boards, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals, while hitting 12-of-21 field goals. If you're waiting for his production to drop off, you might be here a while.

Yogi Ferrell (ankle) is available to play against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

He's not a lock for minutes, especially with coach Kenny Atkinson talking up Isaiah Whitehead pre-game. Ferrell has very little value.

The Nets recalled Chris McCullough for Wednesday against the Nuggets.

He posted 19 points and 13 rebounds in 34 minutes for his D-League game on Wednesday. McCullough is getting a lot of frequent flyer miles, but he's not in the rotation right now.
Dec 7 - 6:01 PM

Yogi Ferrell (sprained right ankle) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Nuggets.

The severity of Ferrell's injury has not been disclosed, but given the way Brooklyn has handled injuries this year, it's probably safe to consider Ferrell doubtful for Wednesday night. If he's out, Isaiah Whitehead and Randy Foye will split the point guard minutes, and Caris LeVert (foot) will have the opportunity to make his regular-season debut.

Sean Marks said he suspects that Jeremy Lin (hamstring) will be able to return to the court "pretty soon," although he'll remain on the sidelines for Wednesday's game vs. Denver.

"He’s so vocal, still at practice, in the locker room and has been from day one when he was out with his injury," said Marks. "He’s progressing well. I obviously don’t want to put a time limit or a day, but I suspect it pretty soon." Lin reportedly looked good while going through his shooting drills on Tuesday, but he's still yet to go through a full practice with the team, and until that happens owners can plan on being without him. He was a top-60 guy before going down, so we'd recommend staying patient.

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.
Dec 6 - 1:15 PM

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.
