Caris LeVert available to play Saturday vs. Heat [UPDATE]

Nets PG has been on a tear lately scoring the rock. He’s going to shake off a hand injury and play.

Update: Feb. 29, 6:10 p.m. ET — Brooklyn has announced that LeVert is good to go Saturday.

Brooklyn Nets G/F Caris LeVert is questionable to play in Saturday’s game vs. the Miami Heat. LeVert has been arguably the hottest scorer in the NBA in February. He only scored 18 points on Friday night against the Hawks, but before that he had been on a tear.

Over this month, LeVert is averaging 21.7 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.7 assists while shooting over 40% from the floor and 3-point range. It appeared that he was finally over multiple injuries that have held him back the past few seasons. Now, the hand issue is back, though this seems more like a spot in which LeVert will get some rest on the second of a back-to-back. I wouldn’t be overly concerned about the injury. If LeVert is out, Spencer Dinwiddie will handle almost all of the ball-handling duties and usage. He’d be an attractive DFS play. Joe Harris, Garrett Temple and Taurean Prince all get a slight bump as well if LeVert sits.
