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. Oct 21 - 10:53 AM

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.
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.
