Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (right ankle sprain) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Wizards.

This explains his brief exit from Wednesday's game and the 'questionable' tag suggests it's not serious. If he can't suit up we should see more DeMarre Carroll at power forward and some extra minutes for Kenneth Faried with the second unit.

Jarrett Allen (illness) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Wizards.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (right ankle sprain) is also questionable and we'll have to wait for updates on both guys after the Nets' shootaround in D.C. Allen has already missed two games so hopefully he's had enough time to recuperate and get back out there.
Nov 15 - 3:26 PM

Allen Crabbe got the start at SG on Wednesday and chipped in six points with two 3-pointers, two steals and one rebound in 26 minutes.

Caris LeVert's dislocated ankle will cost him at least 2-3 months, leaving 29.3 minutes per game for coach Kenny Atkinson to fill. Crabbe has done nothing to benefit owners this season, with his 1.4 triples easily outweighed by 25.5 percent shooting, but a big opportunity has been gifted to him. Grab him if you need triples in deep leagues, but most owners can take a wait-and-see approach.

D'Angelo Russell shot 6-of-18 from the field without any 3-pointers or free-throw attempts, adding five assists, three rebounds and one steal in 24 minutes.

Yikes. Caris LeVert (ankle) was averaging 53.4 touches per game, second-most for Brooklyn behind Russell, and those touches have to go somewhere. It stands to reason that Russell will get a big chunk of them -- now he just needs to make more than 41.3% from the field to make the most of his opportunities.

Ed Davis - F/C - Nets

Ed Davis had eight points, nine rebounds, one assist and one steal as a fill-in starter vs. the Heat on Wednesday.

Jarrett Allen (illness) was out tonight so Davis was the next-man-up for Brooklyn. Allen was a game-time decision and gets another day to rest before Friday's road game in D.C., so this doesn't mean much for Davis going forward. Just file away the fact that he'll start if anything happens to Allen.
Nov 14 - 10:47 PM

Shabazz Napier played a season-high 26 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, scoring 13 points with two boards, two assists and two steals.

Spencer Dinwiddie also fared well with 18 points and five dimes, but we'd caution against reading too much into this game -- it was a blowout and coach Kenny Atkinson is still putting his rotation together without Caris LeVert (ankle) for at least a few months. Dinwiddie should already be owned and Napier is more of a 'watch-list' guard in 12-team formats.
Nov 14 - 10:47 PM

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson returned to Wednesday's game after a brief exit, finishing with 14 points, nine rebounds, one steal and one block in 23 minutes.

RHJ had a vague leg injury early in the game, causing the Nets some momentary concern, but they wouldn't have let him return if it was serious. He grabbed five offensive boards and was one of the only bright spots in an otherwise lousy home loss, so hopefully the injury doesn't set him back. We're considering him closer to 'probable' for Friday's game, but will leave him off the injury report.
Nov 14 - 10:46 PM

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson returned in the third quarter on Wednesday.

He got tied up as he tried to go for a steal and apparently everything is OK with RHJ. He'll see minutes at the four and five tonight and should start trending up now that the Nets are missing their best player for a while.
Nov 14 - 9:14 PM

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (leg) was helped to the locker room on Wednesday.

It looked to be a non-contact injury for Hollis-Jefferson, and he needed assistance to get to the locker room. There wasn't anything too awkward about him trying to get a steal off Wayne Ellington, so he may have pulled a muscle. If he's out, Kenneth Faried will get minutes while DeMarre Carroll may have to play more.
Nov 14 - 8:47 PM

Allen Crabbe will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Heat.

Crabbe will be the guy to move into the starting five with Caris LeVert (foot) out indefinitely, and he could see some more shots coming his way while LeVert is out. Crabbe can be a steady source of points and triples when given the minutes and touches, so he's on the radar in deep leagues.
Nov 14 - 7:03 PM
Ed Davis - F/C - Nets

Ed Davis and Allen Crabbe will start against the Heat on Wednesday.

It makes a lot of sense to start Davis against Hassan Whiteside tonight, so this isn't a surprise. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson should still see some minutes at the five or it could be a night we see some Kenneth Faried. Davis could be looking at his biggest opportunity of the season, but he won't have much fantasy value going forward because Jarrett Allen (illness) should be back this weekend.
Nov 14 - 7:00 PM

Jarrett Allen (illness) will not play vs. the Heat on Wednesday night.

This illness will now keep him out for at least two games, which is unusual by most standards. He should be back for the weekend, though. With him out, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is likely to get minutes at the five again while Ed Davis could play more, too.
Nov 14 - 5:56 PM

The Nets recalled Rodions Kurucs and Dzanan Musa for Wednesday against the Heat.

Kurucs was assigned to the G League earlier today and yesterday Musa was listed as out for G League assignment, but chances are both won't play even with the Caris LeVert (foot) injury.
Nov 14 - 3:34 PM

Rodions Kurucs has been sent down for a G-League stint.

Kurucs hasn't been able to crack the rotation in Brooklyn, so he'll head down to the G-League for some much-needed experience.
Nov 14 - 11:41 AM

Jarrett Allen (illness) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Heat.

Allen missed Monday's game vs. the Timberwolves, which resulted in Rondae Hollis-Jefferson earning the start at the five-spot and Ed Davis saw his minutes in the 20s. We'll have a better idea on Allen's status following shootaround, but if he's out again, RHJ and Davis will again have the opportunity for extended minutes.
