Caris LeVert    G  Nets

 

 

Caris LeVert scored 13 points with two rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 22 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday. His improvement at backup point guard is going to be key for how the Nets handle their rotation. Coach Kenny Atkinson has said he'd like to play D'Angelo Russell next to Spencer Dinwiddie, which means LeVert should continue as the backup one. Although, it may be harder for him to close games, so his owners may want to expect a dip in production. He should still be held in standard leagues, though.

LeVert scored 20 points (8-20 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding seven rebounds, an assist and a steal in 30 minutes off the bench during Monday's 119-104 loss to the Knicks. The entire rest of the Nets bench scored only 27 points, allowing LeVert's third game of the season with 20 or more to go to waste. His production has been hit or miss since he returned from a groin injury that cost him the first two games of 2018, but it looks like the second-year wing is back in top form.

Caris LeVert's shot was off again in Saturday's overtime loss in Washington, but he was able to finish with 12 points, eight rebounds and eight assists over 35 minutes. LeVert had an ugly 5-of-16 shooting night, including 1-of-7 from behind the 3-point line, and he is shooting just 34.4 percent (21-of-61) in five games in the month of January. With his shot not falling, he contributed in other ways, posting a season-high eight boards while his dimes were his third-most of the season. In the second half of the season you can expect the Nets to lean heavily on their younger players, and that means LeVert could see an even larger role down the stretch.

Caris LeVert finished Wednesday's ugly loss with 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting, five rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and six turnovers in 27 minutes off Brooklyn's bench. In addition to simply earning more minutes this season, LeVert is doing more while he's on the court -- his per-36-minute stats have increased in scoring (16.1 points per 36), triples (1.6), assists (5.6), steals (1.8) and blocks (0.5). His turnovers have nearly doubled, however, which is one taking a toll on his 9-cat value. Still, he should only see his role increase as the Nets develop young guys over their final 41 games.

Caris LeVert    G  Nets

 

 

Caris LeVert returned from a two-game absence on Monday vs. the Raptors and really struggled, hitting just 2-of-13 shots for five points, three assists, one rebound, two steals, one block and one triple. There was some obvious rust with a couple airballs, but at least he had his normal explosion. He was supposed to have minute restrictions tonight, but he ended up playing 27 with the game going to overtime. LeVert was averaging 16.3 points, 8.3 assists and 5.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.5 triples in his previous four games before the injury, so his owners should forget about this dud and expect a better performance in his next outing.

Kenny Atkinson said that he will try and "build up" Caris LeVert's (groin) minutes in his return from a two-game absence on Monday. LeVert will be out there for Monday's matchup with Toronto, but it sounds like Atkinson will be monitoring his minutes, making him a risky guy to deploy in daily leagues. He's fine to throw out there in season-long settings, though.

LeVert (groin) will play Monday against Toronto, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports. A groin issue kept LeVert on the shelf for each of the last two games, but the Michigan product confirmed at shootaround that he's "100 percent" ready to return to action Monday night. With DeMarre Carroll (knee) already ruled out, LeVert could see a slight bump in minutes, and there's a decent chance he'll enter the starting lineup in Carroll's place.

Caris LeVert (groin) said he's 100 percent ready to play on Monday vs. the Raptors. The Nets held him out for two games to make sure that he was 100 percent before clearing him. We'll be on the lookout for any word on restrictions, but there's a good chance he sees his normal allotment of minutes. He was on fire before the injury and shouldn't be sitting on the waiver wire, especially with four games on the schedule this week.

LeVert (groin) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Raptors, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports. LeVert has missed the last two games with a left groin strain, but has made enough progress in his recovery that he's expected to return to the court Monday. Look for a final word on his availability to come after the team's morning shootaround, though if cleared as expected, LeVert could be in line for an expanded role right away. The Nets are set to be without DeMarre Carroll (knee), which should open up more minutes on the wing for LeVert.

Caris LeVert (groin) is being listed as probable for Monday's matchup with Toronto. It looks like the groin issue will only end up costing LeVert two games on the sidelines, and with him expected to get back on the court on Monday, there won't be as many minutes available for Nik Stauskas and Joe Harris. LeVert was playing very well prior to going down, so he should be owned in most leagues.
