Nets GM Sean Marks said Jeremy Lin is "definitely" still the leader of the team.
"We’ve got young players. He’s definitely the leader of that clubhouse, with his work ethic and the stuff he does in there," Marks said. "He’s tremendous." Lin has one more year left on his deal with a player option for a second, and Marks made it clear that he "certainly" wants him around. It's going to be interesting to see how he coexists with D'Angelo Russell, but Lin said he's excited to share the court alongside another player who is dynamic because it will make the game easier. The Nets should use plenty of two-PG lineups, so Lin's value should be fine. Jun 24 - 11:55 AM

Jeremy Lin (rest) will not play Wednesday vs. the Bulls.

The Nets are shutting down shop for the season, resting Brook Lopez (rest) and Trevor Booker (rest) as well. Spencer Dinwiddie will likely draw the start on Wednesday. Isaiah Whitehead and Archie Goodwin will see additional minutes off the bench.
Apr 11 - 6:30 PM

Jeremy Lin scored 26 points (4-of-9 FGs) with 12 rebounds, four assists, one block and two triples in a loss to Boston on Monday.

He came out super aggressive tonight and made it to the free throw line 17 times, connecting on a career-high 16 freebies. Lin's owners are probably surprised that he's still playing at this point in the season, but there is a chance he could sit out the season finale on Wednesday vs. the Bulls -- he was grimacing in the fourth quarter and he kept grabbing at his hip. If the Nets do decide to sit him down, Spencer Dinwiddie and Isaiah Whitehead would benefit.
Apr 10 - 10:33 PM

Jeremy Lin scored 12 points with six rebounds, seven assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes during a 107-106 win over the Bulls on Saturday.

The Nets continue to win games and have gone 4-1 so far in April. A lot of that is on Lin as he continues to get his teammates in good position to score. The Nets are not shutting their guys down, so expect Lin to have a solid finish the rest of the way.
Apr 8 - 8:14 PM

Jeremy Lin scored a game-high 32 points in 31 minutes during Thursday's road loss in Orlando, making 11-of-20 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs with five rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 31 minutes.

Lin had 17 points in the first half, his highest total in any quarter this season, but the Nets still found themselves tied against a short-handed Magic squad. They were crushed in the second half but are still finishing the season on a high note, going 6-4 over their past 10 games. It seems as though Brooklyn wants to see how Lin and Brook Lopez complement the team's younger guys, which is an unexpected bonus for his tenacious owners.
Apr 6 - 10:52 PM

Jeremy Lin had 15 points, six rebounds, six assists and two 3-pointers vs. the Hawks on Sunday, doing his damage in 31 minutes.

Lin played both Saturday and Sunday this weekend, and the Nets don't have any back-to-backs remaining. That should protect him from any frustrating DNP-CDs, but it's always wise to double-check his status prior to tip-off.
Apr 2 - 9:09 PM

Jeremy Lin made 3-of-14 from the field for eight points with four rebounds, eight assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against Magic on Saturday.

He didn't count on his jumper too much and had six shots in the paint, but Lin couldn't get it going. Hey, at least he filled the stat sheet. Coach Kenny Atkinson said he won't shut down his starters, but that doesn't necessarily mean Lin won't have a soft minutes limit. With a back-to-back game coming up on Sunday, he'll likely be in the 20s again.
Apr 1 - 9:01 PM

Jeremy Lin scored 14 points with five rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Pistons on Thursday.

He played 30 minutes on Tuesday and has seen a steady increase in playing time this month. The Nets have been cautious with Lin on a back-to-back set, so Lin could be in the upper 20s on Saturday against the Magic. He should still have enough value in that playing time to use in most leagues, but check back to make sure he's not getting a game off.
Mar 30 - 9:59 PM

Jeremy Lin scored 14 points, but hit just 4-of-14 shots in Tuesday's loss to Philly.

At least he's healthy. Lin logged 30 minutes and salvaged his line with seven assists, six rebounds and four steals, but he missed all four of his 3-point attempts and finished 3-of-4 from the line. Lin could be shut down at any time with just eight games remaining, so get into the habit of checking the injury report prior to every game.
Mar 28 - 10:51 PM

Jeremy Lin scored 18 points with four rebounds, eight assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Hawks on Sunday.

The Nets are actually a respectable basketball team when Lin plays, posting a 9-19 record when he suits up. Yes, that's not great, but a 32.1 win percentage puts them a lot closer to the Knicks than how the Nets have played without Lin. He's also turned it up over his last three since returning from injury, averaging 15.3 points, 2.7 boards, 5.3 assists, .07 steals, 0.7 blocks and 1.0 treys. There is always risk on playing him for weekly leagues, but he makes sense to start in most cases right now.
Mar 26 - 5:14 PM

Jeremy Lin scored 14 points with one rebound, three assists and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Wizards on Friday.

He did have a very slight tweak of his right ankle in the first quarter, but he did stay in the game. The Nets will likely keep Lin's minutes under 30, so his fantasy upside isn't the greatest for owners needing volume stats.
Mar 24 - 9:55 PM

Jeremy Lin (ankle) finished with 13 points, five assists, three boards, one 3-pointer and two turnovers in 21 minutes in his return to the lineup against the Suns on Thursday.

Lin ended up missing just one game after spraining his ankle on Sunday. He did not seem bothered by the injury on Thursday. The game was a complete blowout, with the Nets winning by 28 points, or else Lin would have likely played more than just 21 minutes. The good news is that the limited workload tonight probably increases the chances he won't be rested and will play normal minutes on Friday.
Mar 23 - 10:30 PM

Jeremy Lin (ankle) will start against the Suns on Thursday.

His ankle sprain from Sunday will only cost him one game. Lin's playing time was on the rise and he even played 30 minutes last Thursday, so the Nets may get him back up to minutes in the upper 20s. With Lin back, Spencer Dinwiddie will move back to the bench and Isaiah Whitehead will lose playing time. Lin is safe to start tonight, but the Nets may take it easy on him for Friday night.

Mar 23 - 5:48 PM

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said he expects Jeremy Lin (ankle) to play on Thursday vs. the Suns.

"My gut is it’s very positive," Atkinson said. "I like what I see in him shooting etcetera." Atkinson previously said that Spencer Dinwiddie will start the rest of the season, and with Archie Goodwin making a case for more minutes, Lin's workload will likely be monitored. He may have to play off the ball more as well. Lin could be shut down at a moment's notice, so his outlook going forward isn't the best.
Mar 23 - 9:48 AM

Jeremy Lin (ankle) is probable to play against the Suns on Thursday.

His Sunday ankle sprain looks like it's only going to cost him one game. With Lin back, Spencer Dinwiddie and Isaiah Whitehead will be losing minutes. Lin is probably worth owning, but the Nets may take it easy on him to get a look at their younger guards.
