Nets: Kris Humphries (Jul 17 3:04 ET ) Humphries has agreed to a two-year, $24 million contract with Brooklyn.
The Scoop: Humphries will be part of a new-look group in Brooklyn that includes guards Deron Williams and Joe Johnson, center Brook Lopez, and forward Gerald Wallace, who all either decided to re-sign with the Nets this month, or in the case of Johnson, accept a trade from Atlanta to Brooklyn.
Kris Humphries scored two points on 1-of-4 shooting vs. the Jazz on Sunday, adding four rebounds, one assist and one block.
The Scoop:He logged 26 minutes and continues to start ahead of Nene (10 points, six boards in 23 minutes). Fantasy owners should stick with him a while longer in case coach Randy Wittman opts for Humphries as his full-time starter.
Kris Humphries had a nice outing in 27 minutes against the Clippers on Friday with 11 points, eight rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block.
The Scoop:Nene played 23 minutes off the bench, scoring nine points with five rebounds, two assists and two steals. The Wizards were great in the paint and kept the Clippers to just 24 points in that area of the court. Humphries looks like he's stick in the starting lineup for now, so he's worth owning in 14-team leagues.
Kris Humphries started and hit 5-of-12 shots for 11 points, three rebounds and no blocks in 28 minutes of Wednesday'a thrilling win over the Magic.
The Scoop:Nene played 21 minutes off the bench and had 12 points, six rebounds and a block after missing time with a sore knee. Nene could get his starting job back soon, but Humps may have earned at least a timeshare, and might have permanently stolen Nene's job. Humphries had been playing very well with Nene out, but came back to earth with Nene back tonight.
Kris Humphries grabbed 14 rebounds with eight points, one assist, one steal and one block in 32 minutes against the Celtics on Sunday.
The Scoop:He continues to get more minutes than Nene and that'll likely remain for another week at least. Humphries had a 20-point game on Friday and a 20-board game on Wednesday, so it makes some sense to add him in in case you need the boards. Owners in standard leagues might want to shoot for a higher upside.
Kris Humphries made another start for Nene on Wednesday and racked up six points, a season-high 20 rebounds, two steals and a block in 30 minutes.
The Scoop:He had eight points and five rebounds on Monday, but looked like a different player against the Lakers. As long as Nene's out, Humps is worth a look, but he likely had the best game of his season tonight.
Kris Humphries started for Nene (plantar fasciitis) once again in the Wizards' 107-86 blowout win over the Heat on Monday, scoring eight points on 3-of-7 shooting with five rebounds and one steal in 24 minutes.
The Scoop:Humphries has not been able to capitalize on Nene's absence but he is well-positioned to do so since Nene seems like he's out 'indefinitely' rather than on a day-to-day basis. If he gets going owners in need of a big man should be ready to make a move.
Kris Humphries had three points with three rebounds, one assist, one block and one turnover in 23 minutes against the Cavs on Wednesday.
The Scoop:He made 1-of-7 from the field tonight and was 2-of-7 in his first start on Tuesday, so the Wizards are missing Nene (foot) right now. The minutes are not going to be more than 25 while Nene is out, so he's more of a low-end plug and play. We don't expect Nene to be ready this weekend, though.
Kris Humphries may start against the Hawks on Tuesday.
The Scoop:It's going to be him or Drew Gooden in place of Nene (foot) tonight. Humphries has played well in his brief time on the court with averages of 6.8 points, 4.7 boards and 0.5 blocks in 15.6 minutes. He should get minutes in the 20s tonight, which makes him a low-end stream play or an option in daily fantasy leagues. Check back later tonight for the starting lineups.
