Jeremy Lin refused to rule out a possible return to the Lakers next season.
Lin will be an unrestricted free agent in the summer, but it would definitely be a surprise to see him come back to the Lakers after such a tumultuous first season. He averaged 11.2 points and 4.6 assists per game, but he was outplayed by rookie Jordan Clarkson down the stretch and there was some tension between him and head coach Byron Scott, Lin's knee is also expected to make a full recovery without having a procedure, but we will track his progress very closely this offseason.

Jeremy Lin said that his knee will not require a procedure, and he's close to being cleared for 1-on-1 drills.

Lin added that he's begun running and cutting, and it sounds like he'll be 100 percent healthy for the start of the 2015-16 season. Lin will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and given that he wasn't even able to get into Byron Scott's rotation until both Kobe Bryant and Ronnie Price were ruled out for the season, partnered with the emergence of Jordan Clarkson, it's very unlikely he'll be returning a Laker. Lin said his role and how he fits into a team's system will be his primary concern when selecting a team during free agency.
Apr 14 - 4:46 PM

Jeremy Lin (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season according to head coach Byron Scott.

Lin's knee is still causing him problems, and the Lakers have no reason to risk his health. Lin will be a free agent in the summer, and it's hard to imagine seeing him back with the Lakers next season due to the emergence of Jordan Clarkson. Lin can be cut in all leagues, while Jabari Brown and Dwight Buycks should see a boost in value.
Apr 12 - 7:47 PM

Lakers' head coach Byron Scott said he doesn't expect Jeremy Lin (knee) to play Sunday vs. the Mavericks.

Lin will go through pregame warmups in hopes of playing tonight, but with the Lakers playing for draft picks, it’s very unlikely that he’ll play at less than 100 percent. Jabari Brown and Dwight Buycks will soak up his minutes, and Brown is worth a look in daily leagues after putting up 20 points and seven assists in his last outing.
Apr 12 - 2:15 PM

Jeremy Lin (knee) did not practice on Saturday.

He did some dribbling drills and didn't take contact with the team. An MRI confirmed Lin doesn't have any damage to his knee outside of an "abnormality" because of post-surgery results, but there's a very good chance he's out for the year. Jabari Brown looked great on Friday with 20 points and seven dimes in 38 minutes, so he's a sneaky player to add in all leagues. Dwight Buycks is also worth a look.
Apr 11 - 3:35 PM

Jeremy Lin (knee) has an "abnormality in his meniscus consistent with post-surgery results."

It's not a new injury and the Lakers will re-evaluate him for the final three games of the season. Lin is out tonight and the Lakers will have Jabari Brown in the starting lineup again. Dwight Buycks will also get plenty of run as the backup and is worth a look.
Apr 10 - 4:07 PM

Jeremy Lin (knee) will not play against the Wolves on Friday night.

He is still dealing with some soreness in his left knee. Lin did not play on Wednesday and there is still no word on the results of the MRI for Lin, which should come today. There's a decent chance he is out for the season. Dwight Buycks will bring his exciting brand of basketball to the backup role while Jabari Brown will get more run. On Wednesday, Buycks scored 15 points with five boards, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer while Brown scored 11 points with one 3-pointer on 3-of-12 from the field. Buycks has the higher ceiling and carries more risk.
Apr 10 - 2:14 PM

Jeremy Lin (knee) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

While we're still awaiting the results of Lin's MRI, the fact that the Lakers are listing him as questionable and not doubtful can be viewed as a positive sign. Still, until those MRI results are made available, there's really no telling whether or not Lin will be in uniform tomorrow. If he's out, Jordan Clarkson, Jabari Brown, and Dwight Buycks would benefit. Stay tuned.

Jeremy Lin (knee) will undergo an MRI on his left knee on Thursday.

This is the same knee that Lin had surgery on for a torn meniscus in 2012, so we'll have to hope this news isn't as bad. With the Lakers having nothing to play for, there is a good chance that Lin gets shut down for the rest of the seaon and can be dropped in standard fantasy leagues. Jordan Clarkson will get all the minutes he can handle going forward, while Jabari Brown becomes worth a look in deeper leagues.
Apr 9 - 10:15 AM

Jeremy Lin (knee) will not play against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

It's a late scratch and Jabari Brown will get the start. Lin had some back trouble last month and it's unknown when this injury happened. Give Jabari Brown a look in deep leagues tonight while fantasy owners can consider dropping Lin.
Apr 8 - 8:55 PM

Jeremy Lin struggled vs. the Clippers on Sunday, hitting 2-of-8 shots to finish with six points, one rebound, two assists and three turnovers in just 17 minutes.

Tonight's Staples-center showdown didn't have much at stake and the No. 5 seed Clippers quickly established a huge lead vs. the last-place Lakers. Lin came in shooting just 37.3 percent in five starts since the All-Star break, compared to 45.3 percent as a reserve, and he obviously didn't fare well vs. Chris Paul's defense tonight. Nevertheless, he has enough upside to remain in active lineups as the Lakers drift through their final five games.
Apr 6 - 12:09 AM

Jeremy Lin started after missing his last game with an illness, but hit just 3-of-10 shots for 10 points and three assists in 28 minutes.

At least he played after missing a couple games, but he didn't look great against the Pelicans. Expect him to bounce back on Friday against the Blazers.
Apr 2 - 2:39 AM

Jeremy Lin (illness) will start against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He missed two games due to a respiratory issue and he could be back up to his normal playing time of around 30 minutes. Lin had trouble speaking on Monday due to soreness in his throat, so there's a little risk in starting him in fantasy on a 12-game night. Jabari Brown is much less attractive now.
Apr 1 - 2:23 PM

Lakers' head coach Byron Scott believes that Jeremy Lin (illness) will be able to play Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.

"I don’t think it’s serious. I think he’s just drained," said Scott. Lin is dealing with an upper respiratory infection, and owners can expect to get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. If he is able to go, Wayne Ellington will likely head back to the bench, and Jabari Brown may fall out of the rotation. Stay tuned.
Mar 31 - 5:50 PM

Jeremy Lin (illness) will not play against the 76ers on Monday.

He has an allergy issue and will miss his second straight game. Wayne Ellington will get another start and Jabari Brown will be the sixth man for the Lakers tonight. Expect both to be around 30 minutes and they could also be score in the teens tonight. Jordan Clarkson is also a nice play tonight.
