Jarrett Jack scored 11 points (5-9 FGA/ 1-2 FTA) with two rebounds, two assists and two steals in the Nets 121-105 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday.

Of the players who began the game on the bench, Jack tallied the most minutes. He added 11 points, and contributed in the rebound, steals, and assist categories. Jack's fantasy value is rather limited as he doesn't really have a stand out asset.

Mirza Teletovic scored 20 points (8-11 FGA) going 4-for-6 from three-point range with six rebounds, one assist and two blocks in the Nets 121-105 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday.

He was bothered by an ankle injury near the end of the preseason, but he didn't seem bothered by it tonight. Teletovic came off the bench and tallied 20 points in only 23 minutes. He was an efficient shooter on the night, and even added six rebounds. Teletovic will continue to be the scorer with the second unit.

Kevin Garnett scored 10 points (5-8 FGA) with six rebounds and three assists in the Nets 121-105 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday.

The aging Garnett isn't the player he once was. He only played 23 minutes tonight, and he will stay right around those minutes for the season. Garnett is a lower-end fantasy option, but he will still put up some points, and rebound the ball.

Deron Williams scored 19 points (6-16 FGA/ 7-7 FTA) with three rebounds, eight assists, two steals and one block in the Nets 121-105 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday.

Williams can be a great fantasy asset, but every year he seems to battle some sort of injury. If he can stay healthy, owners will cash in on their investment. Williams is an efficient scoring point guard who is never gun shy to shoot the ball. That bodes well for fantasy owners.

Joe Johnson scored 19 points (7-19 FGA/ 3-5 FTA) going 2-for-5 from three-point range with six rebounds, three assists and one steal in the Nets 121-105 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday.

Johnson's age continues to go up, but his production is holding steady. He tied Deron Williams as the second highest scorer for the Nets, but he should contend for the leading scorer on this team by seasons end. Johnson's main contribution is going to come in the points department but it was nice to seem him add in some other ways.

Nets say Markel Brown is also inactive Wednesday night.

Brown has battled injury and illness in recent weeks and won't play during the Nets' opener on Wednesday night. The rookie will look to make his debut in the coming days.

Mason Plumlee was officially named the starting center for Wednesday's season opener.

Although this was expected, it is finally confirmed now. Last season, Plumlee averaged 7.4 pints and 4.4 rebounds in just over 18 minutes per game. Plumlee is going to play some serious minutes during Lopez's absence.

Brook Lopez (foot) has been ruled out of Wednesday's season opener.

The Nets will be without their starting center for their season opener against the Boston Celtics. Mason Plumlee will receive the start, and the majority of the time during Lopez's absence.

Brook Lopez (foot) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's opener.

The Nets have come out and said Miles Plumlee will get the start if Lopez is unable to go as he recovers from an injury to his surgically repaired foot.
