Kenneth Faried double-doubles for Nets in loss
Brooklyn Nets forward/center Kenneth Faried scored 13 points (5-of-10 field goals, 2-of-2 free throws) with 12 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 1 block, 1 3-pointer, and 1 turnover in 28.6 minutes of a 116-95 loss to the Boston Celtics on Monday.
Faried was a healthy scratch in each of the previous three contests and DeMarre Carroll’s (knee) absence is only expected to last one game, so the Manimal will likely fall back out of the rotation for Wednesday’s matchup with the Atlanta Hawks. The 29-year-old is playing on an expiring contract and could wind up being traded before the deadline.
Faried finished with 33.9 FanDuel points in the loss. He’s averaging 34.5 FanDuel points in the last two games he actually played.
