Jeremy Lin scored 21 against the Heat on Monday, adding three assists, two steals, three turnovers and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.
The Hornets have not missed Nicolas Batum (ankle) at all and most of it has to do with Lin. He was marvelous in Game 3 and has carried the Hornets second unit while getting 26 minutes next to Kemba Walker tonight. There's a chance Batum can make it back for Game 5, so that would likely hurt Lin. Although, he's been too good and coach Steve Clifford might have to find a way to get him more minutes.

Jeremy Lin propelled the Hornets to a Game 3 96-80 victory on Saturday with his 18 points in 26 minutes off the bench, adding four rebounds, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He scored 13 points in the first half to get the Hornets going early. Lin played close to mistake-free ball with no turnovers and his defense was better than usual, as well. This was huge for the Hornets because Kemba Walker didn't have it with only 17 points, three rebounds and seven assists in 37 minutes. Lin did log 10 minutes as the backup point guard to go with his 16 minutes on the wing. The Hornets won their first playoff game since 2002 and will look to get another win on Monday to tie up the series. Lin should be in the mix yet again now that Nicolas Batum (ankle) is likely out for the series.
Apr 23 - 9:02 PM

Jeremy Lin had another strong game as a fill-in starter for Nic Batum (ankle), posting 10 points, four boards, four assists and two 3-pointers in a critical home win on Wednesday.

The Hornets had a 16-point halftime lead, which enabled Steve Clifford to rest his key players -- Lin logged 21 minutes which was the most of any starter. Lin will return to a smaller bench role once Batum returns, which should be the first game of the Hornets' series vs. the Heat.
Apr 13 - 11:25 PM

Jeremy Lin will return to the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Magic, with Nicolas Batum (ankle) unavailable.

Lin is as inconsistent as they come, but with a favorable matchup and some increased opportunity he's someone to consider deploying as a potential punt play in DFS.
Apr 13 - 7:04 PM

Jeremy Lin was fantastic during a 114-100 win in Boston on Monday, scoring 25 points with seven rebounds, five assists, five steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

Nicolas Batum (ankle) went down after 17 minutes of action and it was Lin to the rescue. He's stepped up the most when Batum has been out, so this isn't a surprise. The Hornets will likely be playing for playoff positioning on Wednesday and Batum is likely going to be out, so Lin could have another nice game. The Hornets are in Orlando for the season finale.
Apr 11 - 10:45 PM

Jeremy Lin missed all six of his attempts from the field during Sunday's 113-98 loss to the Wizards, registering just one point on 1-of-2 shooting from the charity stripe through 22 minutes of action.

Lin also added one rebound, three assists, one steal and three turnovers to his uneventful stat line, and with Nicolas Batum (knee) back in action, Lin's production and minutes just won't be consistent enough for him to warrant a roster spot in most leagues.
Apr 10 - 4:25 PM

Jeremy Lin came off the bench on Wednesday for six points on 2-of-9 shooting, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, three assists and two turnovers in 33 minutes.

Lin was starting in place of Nic Batum (knee) but the Hornets opted for a larger lineup tonight. The playing time was there but Lin just couldn't take advantage of the extra opportunities sans Batum. He's worth a look as a streamer but prospective owners should keep a close eye on the Hornets' injury report.
Apr 6 - 11:10 PM

Jeremy Lin will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

Frank Kaminsky will draw the start in his place, but Lin should still be able to earn quality minutes tonight sans Batum. He was very good in his previous outing, scoring 21 points with a full line, and with a favorable matchup against the Knicks tonight owners should not hesitate to get him active.
Apr 6 - 7:04 PM

Jeremy Lin (right elbow) is a go for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

Nicolas Batum (knee) is out tonight, so Lin figures to earn another start, and he'll make for an intriguing DFS option with a favorable matchup against New York tonight. In 10 career games against the Knicks, Lin owns averages of 14.4 points, 3.5 boards, 4.5 assists and 1.1 steals on 48.5 percent shooting. Go ahead and get him active.
Apr 6 - 6:08 PM

Jeremy Lin (right elbow bursitis) is probable to play Wednesday vs. New York.

Maybe his elbow is sore after draining all those buckets Tuesday night. Kidding aside, the probable tag indicates that he's not dealing with anything serious, and with Nicolas Batum (knee) questionable to play tonight, Lin could be in for another big time performance against his former team. Check back for official confirmation closer to tip-off.
Apr 6 - 11:28 AM

Jeremy Lin started for the injured Nicholas Batum (knee) on Tuesday and went off for 21 points on 5-of-11 shooting with four boards, seven assists, four 3-pointers, one steal and three turnovers in 40 minutes.

Lin had the hot hand early, scoring 15 of his 21 points during the first half, and his 4-of-5 shooting performance gave him a sterling true shooting percentage of 72.3 on the evening to go with his usage rate of 19.7. The Hornets have a playoff spot all locked up, so they may be extra cautious with Batum, meaning that Lin could earn a few more starts in Charlotte. He’s worth a look in most leagues.
Apr 5 - 10:56 PM

Jeremy Lin will start in place of Nicolas Batum (knee) on Tuesday vs. the Raptors.

It isn't clear how long Batum will be out, but Lin could benefit the most in his absence and is worth a look in most leagues since the Hornets play four times this week. We will let you know how he does after the game.
Apr 5 - 7:28 PM

Jeremy Lin (back) returned after missing one game with nine points, four rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and one turnover in 24 minutes on Friday against the 76ers.

He played 12 minutes at point guard and 12 minutes at shooting guard. Lin's minutes figure to be in the low 20s most nights, so that's not quite enough value to start him in standard leagues. Plus, the Hornets are very unlikely to rest players.
Apr 1 - 9:35 PM

Jeremy Lin (back) will play on Friday against the 76ers.

He went through warmups and he's all good. Lin will back up Kemba Walker and probably won't get many minutes at shooting guard behind Courtney Lee. He's not the best fantasy option tonight even in a favorable matchup.
Apr 1 - 5:58 PM

Jeremy Lin (back) will try to play against the 76ers on Friday.

Assuming everything goes well in warmups, Lin will be out there after missing Tuesday's action. He is still not a great fantasy option for tonight because he probably won't play in garbage time anyway. This doesn't really affect Kemba Walker.
