Jeremy Lin made the most of his start on Tuesday, racking up 19 points (6-of-11 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), two 3-pointers, two rebounds and seven assists.

It's likely that Lin will start the rest of the season and fantasy owners should plug him into all active lineups. The Lakers are drifting toward the draft lottery but Lin will be playing with a purpose -- his $8.4 million contract expires this summer, setting him up for a nice payday in free agency. L.A.'s upcoming schedule also helps his case, as they're tied with Charlotte for the most remaining games.

Jeremy Lin will start next to Jordan Clarkson on Tuesday against the Thunder with Wayne Ellington moving to the bench.

This move has been talked about for close to a month. Lin is playing terrific ball right now, scoring a season-high 29 points against the 76ers on Sunday. He should be owned in all leagues and will be very helpful for fantasy owners due to his favorable schedule.

Jeremy Lin and Ed Davis could soon begin starting for the Lakers.

Byron Scott previously said that he wanted Lin to get back into the starting lineup before the season concluded, and he's running out of time if he wants to make that happen. Just because both guys could join the starting lineup doesn't guarantee either anything in terms of playing time, but it would certainly add some on-the-surface appeal to each down the stretch. Regardless, both players should be owned in the majority of leagues already. As a starter, Lin is averaging 11.6 points, five dimes, 1.1 steals and 1.1 triples on 44.9 percent shooting.

Jeremy Lin (back spasms) got hot in the second half of Sunday's 101-87 win over the Sixers, finishing with a season-high 29 points on 10-of-16 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs.

Lin made two 3-pointers with five boards, five assists and one steal, and he did it all in just 29 minutes of action. His back was reportedly 6-8 inches out of alignment as recently as Saturday, which makes tonight's sparkling performance even more impressive. He's expected to start the final 10 games of the season, unless Byron Scott changes his mind, which is good news for roto owners and anyone whose season continues until the bitter end. As a late-round value with upside, Lin deserves to be owned in most standard leagues.
Mar 23 - 12:36 AM

Jeremy Lin (back) said he will play against the 76ers on Sunday.

He has been dealing with back spasms and only played 22 minutes on Thursday. Lin has been solid since the break, averaging 12.9 points, 3.0 boards, 5.0 assists, 1.7 steals, 0.7 blocks and 0.7 treys. That's good for top-70 value in standard leagues, so he's worth owning right now.
Mar 21 - 3:41 PM

Jeremy Lin (back) said after Thursday's game that he intends to suit up for Sunday's matchup with the 76ers.

Lin is dealing with back spasms and pain in his right wrist, but he was able to fight through his various ailments and end up suiting up for Thursday's game. He wasn't effective, shooting just 1-of-8 from the field, but head coach Byron Scott praised Lin for giving it a go. Lin will likely sit out Friday's practice in order to give his body time to recover for Sunday's game, and we'll be monitoring this situation closely. Stay tuned.
Mar 20 - 8:56 AM

Jeremy Lin played through a back injury on Thursday against the Jazz, logging 22 minutes with two points, one rebound, four assists, three steals, one block and two turnovers on 1-of-8 from the field.

He didn't close out the game and maybe he's not at 100 percent. Lin has been productive this month before tonight, averaging 12.7 points, 3.7 boards, 5.4 assists, 0.9 blocks, 1.9 steals and 0.8 treys. The Lakers are off until Sunday and hopefully the time off will help Lin get closer to 100 percent.
Mar 20 - 12:57 AM

Jeremy Lin (back) said he will try to play against the Jazz on Thursday.

He's going to come off the bench, so there's always a lot of risk to starting a hurt player who isn't a complete lock to play. Lin may have his minutes cut and does have some back issues in the past, so he's a risky play at any depth.
Mar 19 - 9:35 PM

Jeremy Lin is now dealing with back spasms and is questionable to play against the Jazz on Thursday.

The in-week injuries just won't go away. If Lin does have to miss this game, there will be more minutes for Jordan Clarkson and Jabari Brown in the backcourt. Plus, there should be more minutes for Wes Johnson and Ryan Clark. Clarkson is the only decent play. Considering where the Lakers are in the standings, we're not expecting Lin to play.
Mar 19 - 8:53 PM

Jeremy Lin revealed that he's been playing through a right wrist injury for "weeks."

The injury hasn't cost him any games and he's shooting a solid 45.2 percent since the All-Star break, but is just 31.3 percent from downtown. Byron Scott plans to start Lin during L.A.'s final 10 games but that didn't stop him from criticizing Lin for two costly turnovers vs. the Warriors on Monday, saying, "I don’t know how you get out of making bad decisions." Lin has returned mid-round fantasy value despite playing only 24.6 minutes per game over the past two weeks, and a starting job should morph him into a must-own PG.
Mar 17 - 7:34 PM

Jeremy Lin played only 19 minutes vs. the Hawks on Sunday, scoring seven points (3-of-6 FGs, 1-of-1 FTs) with three boards, three steals and four turnovers.

Lin had the team's worth +/- rating and coach Byron Scott wasn't shy about leaving him on the bench -- this marks Lin's first game under 20 minutes since Jan. 15. He's expected to start L.A.'s final 10 games, beginning Mar. 29, though that may be too late to help owners in typical head-to-head playoffs. Plan accordingly.
Mar 16 - 12:09 AM

Lakers' head coach Byron Scott said that he plans to bring Jeremy Lin into the starting unit for the final 10 games of the season.

While things aren’t official just yet, given this timeline, Lin would slide into the starting unit on March 29. He’s been playing very well off the bench for the Lakers since the break, putting in averages of 14.3 points, 5.6 assists, and 1.5 steals per game on 45.5 percent shooting from the field, so owners can expect those numbers to go up a bit when he enters the starting lineup. When Lin does enter the starting unit, Jordan Clarkson would head to the bench, and his value would take a hit with the demotion to the second unit.
Mar 15 - 2:32 PM

Jeremy Lin scored 14 points against the Knicks on Thursday during a 101-94 loss, adding two rebounds, seven assists and one block.

His defense was awful and the Lakers gave up a lot of points to the Knicks on the wing. Coach Byron Scott wasn't really happy with Lin following the game. "Tonight I put him in the same category as everybody else," Scott said. "I didn't see one guy who came out with the right mindset. "Lin should get minutes in the upper 20s and is worth owning in standard leagues right now.
Mar 13 - 2:53 AM

Jeremy Lin (thigh) went through shootaround, and he will be available for Thursday's game against the Knicks.

Lin has really stepped up during the month of March, putting in averages of 13.0 points, 6.3 assists, 2.2 steals, and 1.0 three-pointer per game. He'll get a fantastic matchup against the Knicks tonight, so go ahead and get him in your active lineups.
