    Description: Nets center Brook Lopez started on Saturday and scored a team-high 19 points.
    Insight: He started in place of Kevin Garnett (rest), and went 8-of-15 from the field and 3-of-5 from the line. Lopez also had eight boards, one assist, one block, and one turnover. He has played well of late.
     
    2/6/2015 9:36:00 PM
    Description: Nets center Brook Lopez started the second half, and went on to score a team-high 22 points during Friday's victory against the Knicks.
    Insight: Lopez replaced Mason Plumlee, and went 11-of-18 from the field. He also had nine boards, two assists, and a shocking six blocks. Lopez may have pushed himself into the starting lineup next time out.
     
    2/2/2015 10:11:00 PM

    Insight: Lopez shot 12-of-20 on his way to 24 points. He had seven rebounds with a steal as well. Lopez continues to be a solid fantasy option for points, rebounds and shooting percentage.
     
    1/30/2015 10:21:00 PM
    Description: Nets center Brook Lopez came off the bench Friday and scored 35 points versus the Raptors.

    1/16/2015 10:12:00 PM

    Insight: Lopez was just 8-of-14 from the field, but took 12 foul shots, making 10 of them. Unfortunately, Lopez didn't do much else with three rebounds, two steals and two blocks.
     
    1/5/2015 10:14:00 PM

    12/15/2014 3:58:00 PM
    Description: Nets center Brook Lopez (knee) will be evaluated next weekend, so he'll obviously continue to miss games until then.
    Insight: Mason Plumlee will start and will make for a nice option in daily leagues. He's posted back-to-back double-doubles in the last two games.
     
    12/11/2014 6:55:00 PM
    Description: Nets center Brook Lopez (knee) will not play Friday against Philadelphia.

    12/8/2014 1:05:00 PM
    Description: Nets center Brook Lopez is out for Monday's game against Cleveland with a lower back strain.
    Insight: Lopez (16.1 ppg, 6.2 rpg) is expected to miss about a week, according to the team's site. The guy just can't stay healthy. Mason Plumlee should get the start and could be of low-end fantasy value.
     
    12/5/2014 9:57:00 PM
    Description: Nets center Brook Lopez had a game-high 20 points in the loss to the Hawks on Friday.

    11/14/2014 10:19:00 AM
    Description: Nets center Brook Lopez had 18 points and five rebounds against Golden State Thursday night.
    Insight: Lopez led the team with 17 shots, the most he's taken all season. It's still hard to believe a guy seven-feet tall can only average 5.5 rebounds per game. That total keeps him from being a more valuable fantasy asset.
     
    11/8/2014 8:53:00 AM
    Description: Nets center Brook Lopez had 20 points and nine rebounds against the Knicks.
    Insight: Lopez was flat out dominant at times on Friday. He shot 6-of-10 and made 8-out-of-10 free throws. Lopez also had two blocks, an assist and a steal.
