Jevon Carter drew the start on Friday with the Bucks resting their starters and took advantage finishing with 18 points and eight assists. In 30 minutes, he shot a very efficient 8-for-10 from the field while knocking down both of his three-point shots during the loss.
Carter will get some playing time over the last week of the regular season but unless he starts again he is not worth fantasy consideration. He will be used as a defensive option off the bench during the playoffs with limited fantasy appeal.
Jevon Carter plans to sign with the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday.
Carter has been a solid depth piece for the Nets this year, getting around 12 minutes per game. The veteran guard was waived on Monday to create room for the Nets to sign Goran Dragic, but it didn't take long for him to find a new home. Fantasy managers should pay attention to how much of a role the Bucks decide to give him.
Carter is one of four Brooklyn Nets to newly enter the league's health and safety protocols Tuesday. This comes less than 24 hours after the addition of Nets' forward Paul Millsap to the league's Covid-19 protocols. The Nets will be forced to play shorthanded in their Tuesday night matchup against the Raptors.
Carter should not be rostered in fantasy leagues of any format.
Jevon Carter produced 20 points (7-10 FG, 6-8 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block across 26 minutes off the bench in Saturday's 119-112 win over the Heat.
Carter scored a season-high 20 points in Saturday's win. It was the first time Carter reached double figures since March 8th. The performance came out of nowhere. Carter knocked down six triples and shot a terrific 70 percent from the floor. He will look to build on this performance in Monday's game against the Thunder.
Jevon Carter totaled nine points (2-7 FG, 1-6 3PT, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, four assists, four steals, and one block in 27 minutes in the Suns’ 117-106 win over the Raptors on Tuesday.
Carter logged 27 minutes in the scrimmage finale win over the Raptors, ending with a full stat-line demonstrating what he can contribute to the team as the Suns prepare to compete in the eight "seeding" games. With Elie Okobo being out for two out of the three contests, and Cameron Payne getting back into the "swing" of the game, Carter logged the most minutes at the backup point guard position. Throughout the three scrimmages, he averaged 22.7 minutes of playing time, 8.7 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.3 steals, and 1.0 blocks while shooting 43.8 percent from the floor. As things stand now, it looks as if Carter is the front-runner for the primary backup role, at least until Okobo gets back into form. Even if this is the case, he is too inconsistent in his production to warrant consideration in any fantasy format. He is best left on waivers as he is a natural fade at this time.
