Landry Shamet scored 20 points (7-14 FG, 6-11 3PT) to go along with one assist and one steal in the Nets win Friday over Charlotte.

Fantasy Impact: Shamet has now scored at least 17 points in three consecutive games, averaging over 27 minutes of playing time in that span. He should continue to see this kind of opportunity as long as James Harden (hamstring) is sidelined.

Nicolas Claxton grabbed nine rebounds to go along with two assists, two steals and one block in the Nets win Friday over Charlotte.

Fantasy Impact: Claxton did not score a point, only taking one field goal attempt, but the Nets do not need him to score. DeAndre Jordan started the game, but only played 17 minutes with Claxton seeing 23 minutes of playing time off the bench. After seeing his time on the court take a bit of a hit earlier in the month of April, Claxton is back to seeing his 20-plus minutes of playing time over the last few games.

Blake Griffin scored 10 points (3-5 FG, 1-1 3PT, 3-4 FT) to go along with five rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in the Nets win Friday over Charlotte.

Fantasy Impact: It has been pretty clear that Griffin has understood and played his role off the bench for Brooklyn. The retirement of LaMarcus Aldridge could offer Griffin a little more opportunity moving forward off the bench, but he has played his role efficiently so far in his time with the Nets.

Kyrie Irving scored 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-7 3PT) to go along with four rebounds, six assists and three steals in the Nets win Friday over Charlotte.

Fantasy Impact: Coming off a 37 point performance on Wednesday against the 76ers, Irving had an unusual down night Friday against Charlotte. It wasn't just that he only scored 12 points, but his 11 field goal attempts were down as well despite playing 33 minutes. Joe Harris stepped up in this win against the Hornets. Irving will look to bounce back offensively on Sunday against Miami.

Joe Harris scored 26 points (8-12 FG, 6-9 3PT, 4-4 FT) to go along with two rebounds, one assist and three steals in the Nets win Friday over Charlotte.

Fantasy Impact: Harris bounced back from his six point performance in the Nets last game on Wednesday against the 76ers. Harris should continue to see this type of scoring opportunity as long as James Harden (hamstring) is sidelined.

Kevin Durant scored 25 points (8-12 FG, 3-5 3PT, 6-6 FT) to go along with three rebounds, 11 assists and one block in the Nets win Friday over Charlotte.

Fantasy Impact: Durant played 30 minutes in this win against the Hornets, so he isn't quite at his full playing time quite yet, but Durant once again made the most of his 30 minutes on the court Friday.

Fantasy Impact: After 14 seasons in the NBA, LaMarcus Aldridge is hanging it up. Aldridge said that on April 10th, he played through an irregular heartbeat, causing him to realize that it was time to retire. Aldridge spent nine seasons with the Blazers, six seasons with the Spurs, and five games with the Nets. Aldridge will end his fantastic career having averaged 19.4 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game.


Bruce Brown Jr. scored 14 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3PT, 5-5 FT) to go along with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in the Nets loss Wednesday against Philadelphia.

Fantasy Impact: Brown played the third most minutes (31) on the team Wednesday despite coming off the bench. The defensive presence Brown possesses continues to give him consistent playing time in the Nets rotation.

DeAndre Jordan scored 12 points (6-7 FG) to go along with 14 rebounds, five assists and one block in the Nets loss Wednesday against Philadelphia.

Fantasy Impact: Jordan saw 26 minutes of playing time in the starting lineup Wednesday. Nicolas Claxton played 22 minutes off the bench as Blake Griffin (knee) and LaMarcus Aldridge (illness) were sidelined. This is the second straight game Jordan saw legitimate playing time after not seeing the court since March 31.

Jeff Green scored 15 points (7-14 FG, 1-5 3PT) to go along with four rebounds and one assist in the Nets loss Wednesday against Philadelphia.

Fantasy Impact: Green saw 28 minutes of playing time in the starting lineup with Kevin Durant (injury management) and James Harden (hamstring) sidelined. Green did not play at all in the Nets near comeback victory in the fourth quarter.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson's second 10-day contract was about to expire. He is a solid depth player in the Nets front court, taking advantage of his limited opportunities over the last couple of weeks. He will likely only see legitimate playing time when players like Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge are sidelined.

Chris Chiozza scored 12 points (4-5 FG, 2-3 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go along with two rebounds, eight assists and one steal in the Nets win Wednesday over New Orleans.

Fantasy Impact: Chiozza saw most of his playing time in the final quarter when the game was out of hand. As long as Kyrie Irving is healthy, his role will be limited.

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot scored six points (2-13 FG, 2-13 3PT) to go along with two rebounds, one assist and one steal in the Nets win Wednesday over New Orleans.

Fantasy Impact: It is safe to say that Luwawu-Cabarrot was not shy to shoot the ball Wednesday, launching 13 shots from deep in 26 minutes of playing time, a good number of them coming when the game was already out of hand. He could continue to see a decent role off the bench while James Harden (hamstring) is sidelined.

Nets star guard James Harden (hamstring) will miss at least the next few games and will be re-evaluated in 10 days. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: An MRI Tuesday revealed a hamstring strain for Harden. While he’ll miss some time, teammate Kevin Durant is probable to play on Wednesday after being out since February 13. Look for Kyrie Irving to assume more ball-handling responsibilities while Harden is sidelined.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson suffered a strained right knee on Sunday and will be out indefinitely. With Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, and James Harden all likely to play this week the injury is a bit of a non factor.
