Nets' Kessler Edwards: Back to G League
Brooklyn assigned Edwards to the G League's Long Island Nets on Wednesday.
Edwards was only with the NBA squad for one day and presumably just practiced with the team before heading back to the G League. Across 22 appearances with Long Island, the 22-year-old is averaging 14.7 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.2 steals in 32.4 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Yuta Watanabe: Probable despite back tightness
Watanabe is probable for Wednesday's game against Boston due to back tightness, Meghan Triplett of GrindCityMedia.com reports.
Watanabe lands on the injury report with a back issue, but it doesn't appear like he's in danger of sitting out Wednesday's game. The fifth-year forward has appeared in 23 straight contests and is averaging 10.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 21.8 minutes over his last four appearances.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Ben Simmons: Won't play Wednesday
Simmons (knee) is out for Wednesday's game versus the Celtics, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.
Simmons will miss his third straight game Wednesday due to left knee soreness. His ongoing absence should continue to afford Day'Ron Sharpe more minutes as the primary backup to starting center Nic Claxton, while Seth Curry is likely to maintain a starting role in Simmons' stead. Simmons' next opportunity to suit up is Saturday's matchup with Washington.... See More ... See Less
Nets' T.J. Warren: Set to miss third straight
Warren (shin) has been ruled out for Wednesday's matchup against the Celtics, Meghan Triplett of GrindCityMedia.com reports.
Warren will miss a third straight game due to a left shin contusion, which likely leaves Yuta Watanabe (back) -- who is listed as probable for Wednesday's contest -- on track to continue handling an elevated role on the Nets' second unit. The severity of Warren's issue remains unclear, but his next chance to suit up will come Saturday against Washington.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Patty Mills: Brings scoring punch off bench
Mills finished Monday's 121-104 win over the Lakers with 21 points (7-12 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three assists and two steals in 26 minutes.
With both T.J. Warren (shin) and Ben Simmons (knee) joining Kevin Durant (knee) on the sideline for the second game in a row, Mills was once again able to handle double-digit minutes with the second unit. He made the most of the opportunity, catching fire from downtown and cleaning up at the free-throw line en route to his second-best scoring performance of the season. Mills can be an appealing streaming option for three-pointers in games when he's guaranteed 20 minutes, but he'll likely be in store for a significant role reduction as soon as at least one of Warren, Simmons and Durant is available to play again....

Nets' Day'Ron Sharpe: Fares well as second-unit center
Sharpe finished with eight points (4-8 FG), 14 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 21 minutes in Monday's 121-104 win over the Lakers.
The absence of Ben Simmons (knee) enabled Sharpe to step in as the second-unit center behind Nic Claxton for the second game in a row, and the second-year big man was able to come through with a fantasy-friendly line. Considering that he played just 14 minutes in a seven-point win over the Knicks two days prior, Sharpe won't be guaranteed a 20-minute role moving forward, even if Simmons misses additional time. With Claxton playing well this season and likely to take on 30 minutes in most games so long as he avoids foul trouble, Sharpe merely remains a name to monitor rather than someone that warrants a pickup in 12-team leagues or shallower....

Nets' Kessler Edwards: Recalled by Nets
The Nets summoned Edwards from the team's G League Long Island affiliate Tuesday, Christian Arnold of Associated Press reports.
Edwards was sent to the affiliate Monday, likely in an attempt to knock some rust off in game action since he hasn't appeared in an NBA game since Dec. 10. The second-year guard has just 13 games under his belt with the Nets and will likely see the vast majority of his playing time in the G League.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Royce O'Neale: Steady production in victory
O'Neale closed Monday's 121-104 win over the Lakers with 14 points (5-10 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block across 28 minutes.
The Nets had a trio of guards score 20-plus points Monday, but O'Neale put up strong numbers of his own from the frontcourt in the victory. The veteran forward made half of his 10 shot attempts -- including three of seven from beyond the arc -- to finish with exactly 14 points for the second straight game. He also contributed across the stat sheet, finishing with multiple steals for the first time in nine contests and adding six boards and three assists. O'Neale is far from a prolific fantasy producer, but he consistently plays major minutes and is averaging career-best per-game marks in points (9.5), assists (4.0) and three-pointers (2.3) through 47 games....

Nets' Cam Thomas: Drops 21 points in win
Thomas closed Monday's 121-104 victory over the Lakers with 21 points (8-13 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and one assist over 23 minutes.
Thomas came into Monday having scored just seven points across 22 minutes over his previous three contests, but he exceeded both those totals against the shorthanded Lakers. The second-year guard logged his most playing time since Jan. 17 and racked up his highest scoring total since he went off for 33 points against Indiana on Dec. 10. Thomas has shown the ability to be a productive scorer at times this season, but his role is too inconsistent to warrant fantasy consideration.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Kyrie Irving: Posts another big scoring effort
Irving ended with 26 points (7-16 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 9-11 FT), seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block across 39 minutes during Monday's 121-104 victory over the Lakers.
Irving led Brooklyn in scoring in the team's 10th consecutive game without Kevin Durant (knee), though the star point guard did see his streak of six straight performances of 30-plus points come to an end. Irving recorded a stellar all-around performance against a shorthanded Lakers squad, also pacing the Nets in assists and finishing third in rebounds while adding a pair of steals and a block. He is averaging 27.3 points per game on the season, just a tick below his career-best mark of 27.4 points per contest, though he played less than 30 games in each of the two seasons during which he set that mark....

Nets' Ben Simmons: Remains out
Simmons (knee) will not play in Monday's meeting with the Lakers, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.
Simmons was held out of the Nets' last contest with left knee soreness and will miss a second straight game due to the issue. Seth Curry slotted into the starting unit in Simmons' place Saturday and is likely to do so again Monday, while Yuta Watanabe could see extended action off the bench. Simmons' next chance to play will come Wednesday in Boston.... See More ... See Less
Nets' T.J. Warren: Ruled out Monday
Warren (lower leg) is out for Monday's contest against the Lakers, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Warren will officially miss his second consecutive game as he tends to a lower leg injury. Joe Harris and Yuta Watanabe emerge as candidates to receive more usage with the veteran forward on the sidelines. Warren's next chance to play comes Wednesday against the Celtics.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Kessler Edwards: Assigned to G League
Brooklyn assigned Edwards to the G League's Long Island Nets on Monday.
Edwards didn't appear in any games for Brooklyn during his latest NBA stint and will head to the G League to presumably get some extended run in Long Island's matchup against the Wisconsin Herd on Monday. Across 22 G League appearances this year, the 22-year-old is averaging 14.7 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.2 steals in 32.4 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Nets' T.J. Warren: Unlikely to play Monday
Warren (lower leg) is doubtful for Monday's game against the Lakers, Chris Milholen of NetsDaily.com reports.
Warren is dealing with a left shin contusion and is considered day-to-day, but it appears as though he'll be forced to miss a second consecutive matchup. If he's sidelined against the Lakers, his next opportunity to suit up would be Wednesday in Boston.... See More ... See Less
