    Boston Celtics

    Position
    G
     
    Jersey
    2
    Name  MarShon Brooks
    Born  1/26/1989
    Height  6-5
    Weight  200
    College  Providence
    1/15/2014 2:13:00 PM
    Description: The Celtics shipped shooting guard MarShon Brooks to the Warriors Wednesday in a three-team trade.
    Insight: He'll join his Boston teammate Jordan Crawford in Golden State. Brooks (3.1 ppg) has been bouncing around between the NBA and the D-League this season. We wouldn't expect him to have a major fantasy impact.
     
    6/24/2013 8:51:00 PM
    Description: The Nets and T-Wolves are discussing a deal that would send MarShon Brooks to Minnesota. SOURCE: New York Daily News
    Insight: Brooks was very productive as a rookie (12.6 ppg) but he didn't see much playing time last season after the Nets acquired Joe Johnson in a trade with Atlanta. For fantasy purposes, Minnesota would obviously be a much better environment for him.
     
    4/3/2013 9:37:00 PM
    Description: Nets guard MarShon Brooks made 12-of-16 from the field as part of a 27-point night Wednesday versus Cleveland. He added seven assists and four rebounds.
    Insight: After barely making a sound over the first five months of the season, Brooks has played at least 28 minutes over the last three games. He got his first start of the season Wednesday in place of Joe Johnson and played 37 minutes.
     
    4/3/2013 6:29:00 PM
    Description: MarShon Brooks and Keith Bogans will start for the Nets on Wednesday against Cleveland with Joe Johnson and Gerald Wallace out of the lineup, according to Cavaliers broadcaster John Michael.
    Insight: After barely making a sound over the first five months of the season, Brooks has averaged 10 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 2.3 apg, 1.7 spg and 1.0 3pt over the last three games.
     
    3/1/2013 11:53:00 AM
    Description: Nets guard MarShon Brooks is questionable for Friday's game against Dallas with a sore wrist. He's expected to be a game-time decision after missing Thursday's practice.
    Insight: Brooks could continue to see bigger minutes along with C.J. Watson, if injured Joe Johnson (plantar fasciitis in left heel) can't run, but he's still not reached a fantasy-worthy level.
     
    2/22/2013 4:10:00 PM
    Description: Nets guard MarShon Brooks should get the start for Friday's game against Houston with Joe Johnson out due to plantar fasciitis in his foot.
    Insight: This will be Brooks' first start of the season. he averaged 12.8 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 2.6 apg in 47 starts last season and could be a viable short-term option while Johnson is sidelined.
     
    11/15/2012 8:41:00 PM
    Description: Nets guard MarShon Brooks (ankle) is active Thursday against the Celtics.
    Insight: Gerald Wallace (ankle) is still sidelined sidelined so Brooks should see increase minutes in the team's rotation. However, he isn't much of a fantasy asset at this time.
     
    11/13/2012 1:09:00 PM
    Description: Nets guard MarShon Brooks will miss Tuesday's game against Cleveland due to a sprained left ankle.
    Insight: Brooks could be benefiting from increased minutes with Gerald Wallace (ankle) sidelined. MarShon is averaging 10.3 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 1.3 apg, so isn't starter value at the moment.
     
    11/11/2012 10:50:00 AM
    Description: Nets guard MarShon Brooks (ankle) will be a game-time decision Sunday against Orlando.
    Insight: Brooks could be benefiting from increased minutes with Gerald Wallace (ankle) sidelined but he's also dealing with an ankle sprain.
     
    11/9/2012 12:25:00 PM
    Description: Nets guard MarShon Brooks is questionable for Friday's game against Orlando with a sprained left ankle. He'll be a game-time decision after hurting the ankle at the morning shootaround.
    Insight: Brooks is averaging 10.3 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 1.3 apg and if he plays could be a solid option with Gerald Wallace out of the lineup.
     
    11/5/2012 10:08:00 AM
    Description: If Nets SF Gerald Wallace (ankle) is unable to play Monday against Minnesota, Brooklyn figures to start Joe Johnson at SF with a backcourt of MarShon Brooks and Deron Williams.
    Insight: Brooks didn't do much in the Nets' opener, scoring eight points in 18 minutes, but could double his playing time if Wallace can't play.
     
    10/19/2012 9:34:00 PM
    Description: Brooklyn picked up its team option on guard MarShon Brooks.
    Insight: Brooks had an impressive rookie year for the Nets (12.6 ppg) but could struggle to see playing time during his sophomore campaign now that Joe Johnson and Gerald Wallace are in the fold.
     
    4/10/2012 12:24:00 PM
    Description: Nets guard/forward MarShon Brooks could get a start at small forward against the 76ers on Tuesday now that Gerald Wallace has been forced out of the game with a hamstring injury.
    Insight: Brooks has averaged 16 ppg and 6.5 rpg in the last two contests and should see plenty of court time as both Wallace and Gerald Green won't be in uniform.
     
    4/6/2012 10:04:00 PM
    Description: MarShon Brooks left the game briefly with a neck injury but was able to return later on.
    Insight: Brooks was a trendy pickup earlier in the year but in recent weeks his scoring totals have tailed off quite a bit (7.4 ppg over his last five games). Brooks' recent slump can be partly attributed to Gerald Green's increase in playing time. Brooks had a good game Friday (18 points, six rebounds and six assists) but then again, who doesn't have a good game against the Wizards?
