Gerald Green SG/SF PHO 19 Hrs
Gerald Green played 24 minutes off the bench on Tuesday, shooting 1-of-8 from the field for six points with three assists and one 3-pointer.
He said he was comfortable coming off the bench, but his first game will be one he'll want to forget. On the bright side, he attempted seven shots from beyond the arc and he should be able to carve out a decent role as long as he doesn't struggle badly enough to force coach Jeff Hornacek's hand. He's not a slam-dunk player to own in standard leagues, so his owners can cut him for a hot free agent.
Al Jefferson PF/C CHA 19 Hrs
Al Jefferson had 19 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks in Tuesday's loss to the Mavs.
Jefferson is finally rounding into form after his annoying ankle injury and has strong double-doubles in three straight games. As long as he can stay healthy, he should only get better as he continues to move past the ankle injury. And if you bought low on him from a disgruntled owner, congratulations are in order.
Josh McRoberts PF CHA 19 Hrs
Josh McRoberts had 10 points, eight rebounds, three assists and three steals on 3-of-6 shooting in 30 minutes of Tuesday's loss.
He didn't hit a 3-pointer tonight, but has scored 10 points in back-to-back games after totaling 11 points in his previous three games. He's not a must-own player, but in a four-game week, he can come through for owners with his scoring, rebounding, assists and 3-pointers. And with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist suffering a broken hand tonight, it's possible that McBob could get hot again, despite the fact they play different positions.
Andray Blatche PF/C BKN 19 Hrs
Andray Blatche had 15 points and six rebounds on 5-of-12 shooting in 24 minutes in another loss on Tuesday.
Blatche has arguably been the Nets best player over the past few weeks, but will take a backseat to Brook Lopez and Kevin Garnett whenever they're available to play, like they were tonight. But as long as he's getting 25 minutes a night, he's at least worth a close look in most leagues, and becomes nearly a must-start play whenever Garnett is in street clothes.
Thaddeus Young F PHI 19 Hrs
Thaddeus Young hit two 3-pointers on his way to 25 points in a double-overtime win over the Magic, while adding 12 boards, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 48 minutes.
He's coming back strong from his absence due to personal reasons. In his last four games, Young averaged 22.5 points, 9.3 boards, 1.3 steals, 1.0 blocks and 2.3 triples in 35.3 minutes per game. The treys are the most shocking since he made a combined two over the previous two seasons. Patience is paying off for his owners and his only issue is at the line.
Alan Anderson SG/SF BKN 19 Hrs
Alan Anderson hit 3-of-6 shots for just eight points in Tuesday's start at small forward, but also had four rebounds, three assists, three steals, a block and a 3-pointer.
If you took a flier on Anderson, who is starting for Paul Pierce (broken hand), things could have gone worse. As long as Anderson is starting there is always the potential he'll blow up for a big fantasy line, but when it might happen is anyone's guess.
Tyshawn Taylor PG BKN 19 Hrs
Tyshawn Taylor started at point guard again on Tuesday, but hit just 4-of-12 shots for 12 points, two assists and a steal in 34 minutes.
The minutes have been nice, but he simply hasn't responded for Jason Kidd and the struggling Nets. It will be interesting to see if he continues to start over Shaun Livingston as long as Deron Williams is out, but the truth of the matter is that it probably doesn't matter.
Tony Wroten PG PHI 19 Hrs
Tony Wroten played just 13 minutes in a double-overtime win over the Magic, scoring two points with two boards and one assist.
The move of Hollis Thompson into the starting lineup has bumped James Anderson to the bench as the sixth man, which subsequently costs Wroten some minutes. He was barely holding value with some ugly shooting numbers, so owners in deeper leagues shouldn't be as enthusiastic about keeping Wroten on their rosters.
Mirza Teletovic F BKN 19 Hrs
Mirza Teletovic sprained his left hand on Tuesday and X-rays were negative, but he finished Tuesday's loss with zero points on 0-of-4 shooting in 14 minutes.
It sounds like he avoided a catastrophe and we expect him to have some nice games while Paul Pierce is out with his own hand injury for the next couple weeks. But as long as Alan Anderson is starting and Teletovic is coming off the bench, he's a very risky option in any sized fantasy league. Especially if his injury is worse than it initially appears to be.
