Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving recorded a nice 28-11-8 line in Wednesday's loss to the Raptors, shooting 10-for-21 from the field and 6-for-6 at the charity stripe. He capped things off with three steals and one block while committing three turnovers and shooting 2-for-5 from deep. Kyrie continues to cook up good lines on the regular, and he has a revenge game next when Boston comes to visit. Irving hasn't been kind to his former employers this season, posting a 40-point game and a 37-point game with 63.6 percent shooting.
Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving scored a team-high 32 points in Tuesday's 134-129 victory over New Orleans, shooting 12-for-19 from the floor and 5-for-6 at the foul line. He was 3-for-7 from downtown with eight assists, two rebounds, one steal and six turnovers. James Harden (hamstring) has reportedly had a setback in his recovery and is now out indefinitely and Kevin Durant (thigh) struggles to stay on the court, which sets the stage for Kyrie to shine. It looks nailed on that he will produce his 15th 30-point game of the season in Wednesday's meeting with Toronto.
Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant (thigh) will miss Tuesday's game against the Pelicans. Durant suffered a bruised thigh during Sunday's game and had to leave the contest early after playing just eight minutes. It's not surprising that the Nets opted to sit Durant, given that James Harden (hamstring) is also banged up. The onus will fall to Kyrie Irving, who has been quiet offensively in his last two games, though he scored 37 points on April 14.
Brooklyn Nets guard James Harden (hamstring) remains out on Tuesday. Harden seems to be nearing a return, as he has ramped up his activity- as well as traveled with the team on their current road trip. It seems likely that he'll be able to rejoin the starting five at some point this week. In his absence, expect Kyrie Irving, Joe Harris, and possibly even Bruce Brown to benefit from increased usage.
Brooklyn Nets guard Landry Shamet finished with a season-high 30 points along with two rebounds and three assists in a season-high 38 minutes off the bench during Sunday's loss to Miami. Shamet notably knocked down seven three-pointers in the contest. The 24-year-old is only averaging 8.8 points per game this season but has now posted at least 17 points in the past four games. This increase in scoring is likely due to injuries on the team but it's still encouraging and now puts Shamet on the fantasy radar going forward. He has an excellent chance to build on these performances on Tuesday against a bottom-five New Orleans defense.
