Andrei Kirilenko will start Monday in place of Mirza Teletovic.

The Nets are still tinkering with their starting lineup, which is why Kirilenko is getting the start on Monday. However, Teletovic is the better player to own in fantasy because he can hit three pointers and score a bunch of points, while AK-47 will not a get a lot of playing time and will eventually get hurt.

 Kevin Garnett and Markel Brown will not play Monday against Philadelphia as each are sidelined with a stomach virus.

This will be the second straight game that Garnett has missed with this stomach bug. There has been no change to Garnett's status to start the season, but his minutes won't be much higher than 20 per game. Fantasy owners in most leagues can ignore him unless it's a plug-and-play on a light Thursday night or something.

Kevin Garnett (stomach virus) will not play Sunday against the Celtics.

This does not sound like anything serious. If Kevin Garnett misses significant time, Mirza Teletovic would go from a borderline play to a must-own in 10-team fantasy leagues.

Kevin Garnett (stomach virus) and Joe Johnson (rest) did not practice on Saturday.

Just some time off to rest; nothing more than that. Both will be on the court for the start of the regular season.

Brook Lopez (sprained midfoot) did not practice on Friday.

Lopez is expected to miss roughly two weeks with soft tissue damage in his surgically repaired foot, so his absence from practice is not surprising. Lopez has had chronic issues with his foot and ankle dating back to 2011. He's an unbelievably talented player who just seems to have an issue with staying healthy. Mason Plumlee will fill in for him during his absence.

Kevin Garnett did not practice Friday because of a stomach virus. 

A stomach virus is minor in the grand scheme of things and shouldn't hold Garnett out for more than a day, two tops if he's dealing with any dehydration. Consider him day-to-day.

Brook Lopez might miss the next 10 days to two weeks with a soft tissue injury in his surgically repaired right foot.

It's better to miss time in the preseason than it is during the regular season, so that is one positive surrounding this injury. Lopez may miss a few regular season games if he's on the high end of that timetable but it shouldn't be much more than that. With that said, he does have a history of injuries, so keep your fingers crossed.

Alan Anderson (abdominal) will not play on Saturday.

Andreson missed Tuesday's exhibition game and practice Thursday, so his absence due to the same abdominal issue isn't much of a surprise. Consider him day-to-day for now, but continue to monitor him to see when he is able to get back on the court.

Alan Anderson is still not practicing as he deals with a sore right abdominal muscle.

Anderson was an important part of the Nets' rotation last season, averaging 22.7 minutes and 7.2 points per game on 40 percent shooting from the field. He has little fantasy value, however. If this injury lingers into the season Jarrett Jack would be the most likely candidate for increased minutes.

Coach Lionel Hollins said Bojan Bogdanovic is starting Tuesday night.

It is too early to read too much into this move by Coach Hollins. However, there has been some rumblings that Hollins will use Bogdanovic in the starting lineup. The starting spot alongside Joe Johnson could be his if he performs well in the preseason.
