Brooklyn Nets G/F Caris LeVert took to social media on Sunday to remind his fans that he’s eager to get back on the court after working out hard during the NBA shutdown amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
LeVert posted a picture of himself in the gym where it looks like he’s added a good bit of muscle to his frame during the shutdown. He added, “I hear it all! Believe I’m working.” LeVert seems poised to pick up right where he left off when the season got postponed in mid-March. LeVert had been on fire after the All-Star break, leading the Nets to a formidable record while Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant remain out due to injury. In those 11 games after the break, LeVert averaged 24.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, 5.4 assists, and 1.6 steals per game. He was quietly putting up top-25 fantasy production in 9-cat leagues and should continue to do so while Irving and Durant are likely to remain on the sidelines even if the season resumes.
Caris LeVert scored 22 points (8-20 FG, 3-8 3PT, 3-4 FT), with seven rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block, and only one turnover across 37 minutes in Tuesday night's shocker-special win over the Lakers.
Another solid all-around game for LeVert as he provided the Nets with a spark on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball. He's been incredible since the All-Star break, and in his last eight games, is averaging 25.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists, and 1.3 steals in 33 minutes per game. Brooklyn plays three more games this week, which really gives LeVert owners a huge advantage given his recent production, but beware, the Nets only play two games the following week.
Caris LeVert produced 23 points (7-14 FG, 5-7 FT), six rebounds, five assists, four 3-pointers, one steal, one block over 37 minutes as the Nets beat the Bulls 110-107 on Sunday.
It appears even with the coaching change LeVert will continue to be the go to guy as he had more field goal attempts they any other Nets player. He’s been playing amazing since the All-Star break and will be a vital part for fantasy owners down the stretch.
Caris LeVert scored 27 points (9-16 FG, 3-5 3PT, 6-7 FT), with 11 rebounds, and 10 assists in 31 minutes in Friday night’s blowout win over the Spurs.
LeVert and the Nets made it look easy tonight in a runaway win against San Antonio. Brooklyn was up by as much as 33 points in the first half, and just never looked back. LeVert is having an incredible start to the month of March, first recording a career-high 51 points, and now getting his first career triple double. If we’re being nit picky, the one thing missing from LeVert tonight were the steals, which he averages 1.1 per game on the year. The steals will come, as will more games like this one tonight. He’s been an absolute stud since the All-Star break.
Caris LeVert came back down to earth Wednesday night, scoring 14 points (6-19 FG, 0-5 3PT, 2-4 FT), with four rebounds, six assists, and one steal across 27 minutes in blowout loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.
After scoring a career-high 51 points in yesterday’s come-from-behind victory against the Celtics, LeVert and the Nets struggled mightily against the Grizzlies at home. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, LeVert is not going to drop 51 a night, but he’s still very much a stud. The team as a whole looked completely gassed tonight, shooting only 33.3 percent from the field. It just wasn’t a good night all around for LeVert and the rest of the squad. Brooklyn plays again on Friday against San Antonio, where LeVert will look to get back on track.
