  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Contract guaranteed

    O'Neale's contract for the 2023-24 season was guaranteed by the Nets on Monday, Michael Scotto of HoopsHype reports.

    O'Neale will make $9.5 million this coming season, giving the Nets another versatile playmaker and defender on the perimeter. The Nets are projected to start Mikal Bridges and Cameron Johnson on the wings, but O'Neale could potentially be the first wing off the bench. Last season, O'Neale averaged 8.8 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.7 assists.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Not on injury report

    O'Neale (knee) isn't on the injury report for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference First Round against the 76ers on Saturday, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    O'Neale missed Sunday's regular-season finale against Philadelphia due to left knee injury management, but he'll be back in action to begin the playoffs. Over four appearances in April, he's averaged 8.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.5 assists in 29.5 minutes per game.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Out Sunday

    O'Neale will not play in Sunday's game against the 76ers due to left knee injury management, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    O'Neale will sit out the Nets' regular-season finale along with Dorian Finney-Smith (wrist), Cameron Johnson (knee) and Seth Curry (ankle). WIth Brooklyn severely shorthanded Sunday, Yuta Watanabe and RaiQuan Gray should each see plenty of run.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Returns to bench

    O'Neale isn't in the starting five for Friday's game versus the Magic.

    O'Neale will be replaced by Dorian Finney-Smith in the starting lineup Friday. O'Neale is averaging 7.7 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 26.2 minutes across his last 10 games coming off the bench.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Excels in place of Finney-Smith

    O'Neale ended with 15 points (5-10 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight assists, seven rebounds and two blocks across 37 minutes during Wednesday's 123-108 victory over the Pistons.

    O'Neale drew the starting nod in place of Dorian Finney-Smith (wrist) and was one of six Nets players to finish with double figures in scoring. He achieved his scoring on efficient shooting from three-point range and supplemented that output with strong marks in three other categories. Finney-Smith is expected to return to the lineup for Friday's game against the Magic, so O'Neale is likely to head back to the bench and see a dramatic reduction in playing time, which will make it difficult for him to replicate Wednesday's magnificent stat line.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Draws start Wednesday

    O'Neale will start Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    O'Neale will draw the start with Dorian Finney-Smith (wrist) sidelined. Across 52 starts this season, O'Neale has averaged 9.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists in 34.1 minutes, but the majority of those starts came when Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving were still with Brooklyn.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Multi-cat performance in loss

    O'Neale accumulated eight points (3-10 FG, 2-8 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists, one block and two steals over 35 minutes during Tuesday's 107-102 loss to Minnesota.

    O'Neale played 35 minutes off the bench, contributing across all major categories. Despite playing as the sixth man for the new-look Nets, O'Neale has been doing just enough to warrant attention, even in 12-team formats. While typically a low-volume contributor, his ability to chip in across the board makes him a sneaky option, especially in roto leagues.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Off injury report

    O'Neale (knee) is off the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

    After sitting out the second game of the Nets' recent back-to-back, O'Neale will get back on the court Wednesday. This month, he's averaging 8.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.2 steals in 27.1 minutes.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Dealing with left knee soreness

    O'Neale (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Magic due to left knee soreness.

    O'Neale played 27 minutes during Saturday's win over the Heat, but he may take a seat for the second half of Brooklyn's back-to-back. If that's the case, more minutes will be available for Yuta Watanabe and Joe Harris.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Out Sunday

    O'Neale (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Orlando, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    O'Neale will hit the sidelines for the second leg of Brooklyn's back-to-back set, which should result in some additional minutes for Yuta Watanabe and Joe Harris. O'Neale's next chance to play will come Wednesday versus Houston.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Quality production off bench

    O'Neale notched eight points (3-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 27 minutes during Saturday's 129-100 win over the Heat.

    O'Neale continues to garner a sizable bench role for the Nets and has appeared in 12 of their first 13 March contests, posting 8.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.2 steals in 27.1 minutes. The veteran forward is a steady contributor in numerous categories on a regular basis, but his overall potential is reliant on his scoring ability, which is usually tied to how well he's shooting the ball from deep. He's made multiple three-pointers in eight of his last nine matchups and is connecting on 43.2 percent of his 4.9 attempts per game during that stretch.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Shines in bench role

    O'Neale notched 12 points (3-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 15 rebounds, two assists and three steals over 36 minutes during Friday's 124-123 overtime win over the Timberwolves.

    O'Neale was tremendous in the win, grabbing a career-high 15 rebounds. That makes back-to-back double-doubles for O'Neale, having now played at least 30 minutes in two straight games. This does not automatically make him a must-roster player, especially since the Nets have a plethora of wing options at their disposal. However, he is worth considering for streaming purposes given his ability to provide out-of-position stats.

  • Nets' Royce O'Neale: Clear of injury report

    O'Neale (knee) isn't listed on the injury report ahead of Friday's game versus the Timberwolves.

    O'Neale was one of numerous Nets players who were rested with different issues during Thursday's game against the Bucks. Most of the regular cast will be back in action Friday, O'Neale included, in the second game of a back-to-back set. O'Neale has settled into a bench role since the trade deadline, averaging 6.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.1 steals-plus-blocks over 24.6 minutes per game in his 10 appearances since the role change.
