DeAndre Jordan News
Free-agent center DeAndre Jordan recently finalized a contract buyout with the Pistons and, upon clearing waivers, is expected to ink a deal with the Lakers. The veteran underwhelmed from a statistical perspective during the 2020-21 campaign while with the Brooklyn Nets, averaging 7.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks throughout 57 games. However, he could see an uptick in production in Los Angeles, and he will likely see minutes as a member of the starting lineup this season. However, Jordan's health has been an issue over the years, and it's apparent his best days are behind him. Still, the upside is there for managers who select him later during fantasy drafts.
Brooklyn Nets center DeAndre Jordan will not pursue a buyout with the organization despite falling out of the rotation. Head coach Steve Nash mentioned that Jordan needs to continue to be ready for when his number does get called. The organization is aware that they have a lot of centers, but they're still working through what their rotation will look like come playoff time. The addition of LaMarcus Aldridge and Blake Griffin have pushed Jordan out of the rotation. Brooklyn also needs to find playing time for Nicolas Claxton, who is having a breakout year. It's safe for fantasy managers to leave Jordan on the waiver wire going forward.
Brooklyn Nets center DeAndre Jordan scored 14 points on 7-for-8 shooting in Saturday's game against the Detroit Pistons. In addition, he grabbed nine rebounds and blocked one shot. Jordan also recorded a steal. He'll play the Knicks on Monday, who allow opponents to grab the 18th-most rebounds in the NBA while shooting the eighth-lowest percentage from two-point range. Jordan's fantasy ceiling will be fairly low in that matchup, so don't invest heavily in him in DFS contests.
Brooklyn Nets center DeAndre Jordan has been tabbed to start Tuesday's game against Sacramento in place of Jeff Green (shoulder). Jordan logged his third double-double of the year in his last outing, with the Kings' struggles at containing the opponents' center only enhanced by his recent success. DFS managers shouldn't expect a massive minutes jump for Jordan, but he should be viewed as a sound cash play option so long as Green is out of the mix.
