Why havent we got any updates on this guy. He’s a pretty high profile player already 5 weeks into his 4-6 week timetable.

Update came out Dec 3rd that he has progressed to shooting drills and he is with the team on their road trip so he is close. Nets are always vague with their players

After missing the past month-and-a-half, Caris LeVert is finally on the verge of a return for the injury-riddled Nets.

LeVert participated in almost every part of the Nets’ practice on Monday, their last before going on a Christmas break. They didn’t do a full scrimmage, but LeVert finally has been cleared for contact and did some contact work with the Nets coaches.

“I don’t want to get too excited, but he did most everything in practice,” Kenny Atkinson said. “He didn’t scrimmage, but we had coaches’ contact.”

“That’s a real positive step,” Atkinson said. “I’m not going to say the day or the date, but that’s a positive step. It’s trending up.”

He is not playing tonight. I need this guy this week. Maybe Thursday.

Caris LeVert (thumb) has been ruled out for Monday's game in Minnesota.

LeVert is traveling with the team on their road trip, and he's indicated that at this point the only thing he needs to do is get his conditioning back, so maybe he should be back within the next handful of games

Yea I dont get it. A 4-6 week table and it's now been 7. "Needs conditioning " is a piss poor excuse when his injury was a HAND injury. He should've been well up to par with his cardio the whole time

A lot depends on how soon or not soon Kyrie comes back. I expect a big difference between when he plays and doesn't

This was last year in 40 games.  I would expect more minutes per game, like low 30 mpg range when he is fully back.

He kills you in percents and TOs while not contributing much above average in the other cats.  A better real life player than fantasy.  Hopefully if you somehow held onto him this entire time he delivers better than the back end top 300 9 cat production he was at before he went down.

These numbers need to be put in context. We have to remember that before he injured his leg last year (Nov 12) he was averaging 19 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 3.7 apg, 1.3 stls on 47.7% shooting.

He returned on Feb 8 and it took him about a month and a half to get back to what he was at the beginning of the season.

Last 8 games of the 18/19 reg season:

26.6 mpg, 16 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 4.3 apg, 48.9% fg, 1.8 3's, 1.1 stls, 65% ft 

Playoff series against PHI

28.5 mpg, 21 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 3.0 apg, 49.3% fg, 2.4 3's, 1.0 stls, 72% ft

 

I don't think my averages for ros is a stretch by any means. He was actually producing some great popcorn stats leading up to the 2 awful games before getting injured. What hampered his value is his lack of stocks, high TOs and terrible percentages. I expect those numbers to eventually balance out.

Glad to see him back! I'll keep him on the IR till next week. I Imagine he's on a minute cap, although technically he wouldn't need one.

I just hope he gets more steals and curbs his TO's. I have him in a points league so I'm tempering my expectations.

I'd think him on the court with Kyrie off the court would be the ideal best time to start him.

 

Once Kyrie is back it's more of the same as before the injury.

I would guess 20 or less.

 

I wanted to really believe in him because he's in a contract year, but anyone that comes back in 7.5 weeks off a 4-6 week timetable is probably not thinking about the team or our fantasy teams.

 

He seems like a guy that would sub himself out.

 

And yes, I know about his leg injury.

Now that he's back.. time to punt FG FT and TOs LUL. Hoping he has a strong second half of season.
