Jeremy Lin has opted in to his $12.5 million player option for next season, according to Zach Lowe of

The Nets do have a noteworthy move after all today. Lin has been out since October with a knee injury and he is expected to be ready for camp. Lin was always expected to opt in on this deal and he should still have a chance to be the opening night starter even if Spencer Dinwiddie and D'Angelo Russell are on the roster.

Jeremy Lin (knee) confirmed that he will be ready to participate in training camp for the 2018-19 season.

"You talking about training camp? Shoot. If I am not, there’s issues," said Lin. There was a report last month that Lin could be cleared to run and jump by April, so he should be as close to 100 percent as possible by October. Lin is expected to opt into the final year of his contract, worth $12 million.

Jeremy Lin (knee) could be cleared to run and jump by April.

Lin continues to make solid progress in his rehab, and while he won't return this season, it sounds like he remains on track to be ready for the 2018-19 season. We'll monitor his progress every step of the way.

Jeremy Lin is progressing well in his recovery from knee surgery.

"I’m getting well and can bend my knee now and I can walk normally. The recovery is very good. I wear the knee brace every day," Lin said, getting up off his couch to demonstrate. "So going anywhere, either eating out or working out is very easy now." To be clear, Lin won't be playing again this season, but it's nice to see that he's making solid progress in his rehab without experiencing setbacks.

The Nets announced that Jeremy Lin had successful surgery Friday morning to repair the ruptured patella tendon in his right knee and will miss the rest of the season.

Fortunately, Lin is expected to make a full recovery and should be fully healed by the start of training camp next October. It is still a brutal blow for the Nets. Among all returning players on the Nets roster from last season, Lin had the highest scoring average, assists, steals, PER and Win Shares per-48 minutes. Lin can opt out of his contract and become an unrestricted free agent next summer, but will now likely pick up his $12.5 player option for the 2018-19 season.

Jeremy Lin (knee) suffered a patellar tendon rupture on Wednesday and will miss the rest of season according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The Nets confirmed this reports just a few minutes after. This is a huge loss for Brooklyn and it robs NBA fans of the chance to see their dynamic backcourt pairing of Lin and D'Angelo Russell. Lin has a player option for $12.5 million next season, so it's going to be hard for him to turn that down. He should make a full recovery and will hopefully be ready to roll in 2018-19. With Lin out, Russell will take on most of the ball-handling responsibilities, while Caris LeVert and Spencer Dinwiddie will get a bump as well. Isaiah Whitehead could also get a chance to earn a rotation spot. Get well soon, Lin.

Jeremy Lin (leg) was helped to the locker room on Wednesday.

It did not look good. Lin went up for a layup and landed awkwardly under the basket. He looked over to the bench for a few seconds, but then was in agonizing pain for a minute before being helped to the locker room. Hopefully we get an update soon, but Lin may have to miss time. Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert would gain run while Isaiah Whitehead would likely be back in the rotation.

Jeremy Lin, D'Angelo Russell, DeMarre Carroll, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Timofey Mozgov will start in Sunday's preseason game against the Knicks.

This will likely be Brooklyn's starting five on opening night, and Lin will be looking to bounce back this season after an injury-riddled 2016-17 campaign. He doesn't offer a ton of upside, but Lin will be worth owning this season and is worth a look towards the later rounds on draft day.

Jeremy Lin scored 16 points with three rebounds, four assists, five turnovers and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Heat on Thursday.

He's been sharing the ball-handling duties with D'Angelo Russell, but the Nets should have enough possessions to go around after they led the NBA in pace in 2016-17. While Lin did play just 36 games last year and the Nets were very cautious with him, it's important to remember they played a healthy Brook Lopez basically all year. He's a fine fourth guard to add to your fantasy team.

Jeremy Lin believes that the Nets can make the playoffs next year.

"I still feel like we can make the playoffs. I know everyone will laugh, but that’s not a problem," said Lin. "Hopefully we can perform exceptionally well. Everyone thinks we’ll suck, so I feel like we don’t have a lot of pressure." Lin went on to say that he believes he'll have no issues playing alongside D'Angelo Russell and he thinks the two can share the backcourt with Lin starting at the two-spot.

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.

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.

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.

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.
