Rodions Kurucs arrested Tuesday

Rodions Kurucs was arrested Tuesday for allegedly choking his then-girlfriend in June.

Fantasy Impact

According to reports, the incident came about after an intense argument that “spiraled out of control.” Kurucs is due back in court October 21, and it’s unclear how this will affect his playing time with the Nets. If he misses time, Taurean Prince may have to step up as the starting power forward, with Wilson Chandler already suspended for the first 25 games on a PED violation.

Rodions Kurucs fails to hit a single three in win

Rodions Kurucs struggled from the field on Tuesday night against the Kings as he finished with just six points while shooting 2-for-9 from the field and 0-for-5 from three. Kurucs did add four rebounds, two steals, and two blocks to his stat line.

Fantasy Impact

Kurucs this game might be an outlier for a guy that has been on fire over his last 10 games as he's shooting 52% from the field and 43% from three. The most impressive part is that he's adding one block and one steal over that run as well.

Rodions Kurucs to start on Monday night

Rodions Kurucs is expected to be in the starting five against the Mavs on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Kurucs was a decent fantasy guy earlier in the year when Brooklyn had some injuries to its forwards, so hopefully he can bring that same energy this time with Treveon Graham out of the mix.

Rodions Kurucs (elbow) will not play on Wednesday

Rodions Kurucs (elbow) has been ruled out for Brooklyn's matchup with Cleveland on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Kurucs will only miss one game with the All-Star break coming up, but he's not worth owning anymore anyway. Allen Crabbe or Shabazz Napier will move into the starting lineup with Caris LeVert seeing some more opportunities as well.
