Lonnie Walker IV News
Brooklyn Nets guard Lonnie Walker IV (hamstring) won't play on Thursday against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The former Laker combined for 58 points in the three games leading up to Monday's showdown with the Warriors. However, Walker lasted only five minutes before exiting for the rest of the contest because of hamstring tightness. As a result, he missed Tuesday's meeting with the Dallas Mavericks. Nonetheless, Walker's next chance to play will be Saturday versus the San Antonio Spurs. But without Walker on the floor, rookie Jalen Wilson, coming off a 10-point, four-rebound, and one-steal outing in 18 minutes, could remain included in Jacque Vaughn's rotation. Unfortunately, Wilson isn't a reliable fantasy option, although a slight upside is there.
Brooklyn Nets guard Lonnie Walker IV (hamstring) will not play in Tuesday's meeting with the Dallas Mavericks. After playing only five minutes for Brooklyn in Monday's loss to the Golden State Warriors, Walker isn't ready to go on the second night of a back-to-back due to tightness in his left hamstring. The 25-year-old swingman has quietly been one of the Association's most productive reserves this year, serving as a spark plug off Brooklyn's bench with averages of 12.0 points and 2.2 treys while shooting a career-high 47.6% from the floor and 43.6% from downtown. Ben Simmons is a candidate for an expanded role with Cameron Johnson (adductor) also out, making Dennis Smith Jr. a deep-league fantasy streamer for dimes and swipes.
Brooklyn Nets guard Lonnie Walker IV (hamstring) and Dennis Smith Jr. (back) are listed as probable ahead of Friday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Nets have been without Walker since late November. It's a shame because he was playing well before the injury, so hopefully he can provide that spark again once he's healthy. Smith sat out their last game, but it was the second game of a back-to-back set. He'd have a bigger role if Walker remains out. Otherwise, Smith won't be an ideal streaming option with Walker back in the mix on Friday.
Brooklyn Nets guard/forward Lonnie Walker IV (hamstring) won't return to the court Tuesday versus New Orleans. He's been trending towards a return, but unfortunately, still isn't good to go. Walker IV missed the entire December and has been absent for 15 games in total. Before running into health issues, the 25-year-old enjoyed a very good start to the campaign, and he still remains Brooklyn's fourth-best scorer with 14.6 points. Walker IV's next chance to return comes on Wednesday versus Houston.
