Fantasy Basketball Add Alert - Nenad Krstic

Nenad Krstic has had an up and down season for the Nets. It started off on a high note as many anticipated Krstic to be ready to comeback strong from knee surgery, and lead a young Nets front court.

Then as the early season wore on, Krstic struggled and it was clear that the knee was not as far along as he or the Nets had hoped it would be. Nenad sat out December and January as he attempted to continue to rehab and strengthen the knee.

He came back in early February and played sparingly, as he continued to get the knee accustomed to the rigors of an NBA game and season. His minutes and numbers were limited throughout February, never doing anything that would warrant showing him any fantasy love.

Finally we got to March, and Krstic finally, began to produce like the Nets had hoped all along. In his last 3 games Krstic is averaging, 12points, 10rebounds, and 1 block in 30 minutes a game. The minutes are there for Krstic to continue this output and it looks like coach Lawrence Frank prefers using Krstic over Josh Boone, who has seen his numbers and productivity take a hit since Krstic's minutes have began to increase.

Go out and grab Krstic if you need a decent fantasy center. He won't block many shots, but he can score, rebound and his free throw percentage won't kill you either.

Great advice. I wholeheartedly agree with you that Krstic is a definite pick up at the Center position.
