Jeremy Lin filled up the stat sheet on Wednesday with 14 points, five boards, four assists, three steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.
Lin could see his minutes increase after the break if Michael Kidd-Gilchrist's dislocated shoulder costs him significant time. Tonight's game was one of Lin's better fantasy outings all season, however, and he's better suited to teams with 14 or more teams. Feb 10 - 10:16 PM

Date:

Jeremy Lin played 16 minutes against the Heat on Friday with six points, two rebounds, three assists and one block.

He played 12 minutes at point guard and four at shooting guard. Now that the starters are 100 percent, Lin is definitely a cut candidate in most leagues.
Feb 5 - 10:49 PM

Jeremy Lin is likely to move back to the bench on Friday against the Heat.

This will get interesting. While Kemba Walker was healthy, Lin played almost 100 percent of his minutes at shooting guard. When Kemba was out, he played almost all of his minutes at point guard because Nicolas Batum was back. Now that those two and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist are all likely to be back, expect his minutes to take a hit. His owners might be on notice once Walker is announced as a starter.
Feb 4 - 10:39 PM

Jeremy Lin carved up the Cavs while starting for Kemba Walker (knee) on Wednesday, finishing with a team-high 24 points on 7-of-13 FGs and 8-of-11 FTs, eight assists, five rebounds and two 3-pointers.

The Cavs' defense gets credit for Lin's big game, but he's been impressive in 10 previous starts this season, averaging 17.2 points, 1.5 triples, 3.9 rebounds and 4.4 assists, with solid percentages (44.8 FGs, 84.1 FTs). He's worth deploying if Kemba's knee injury costs him more games, but his value takes a significant hit when coming off the bench.
Feb 3 - 10:13 PM

Jeremy Lin (ankle) will start on Wednesday vs. the Cavaliers.

Kemba Walker is sitting this one out with a sore knee, so Lin is going to play heavy minutes even though he is also dealing with a minor injury. He's a solid target in DFS and is a good insurance policy for Walker's owners as well. Get him in lineups and expect Brian Roberts to get a few minutes as the backup PG.
Feb 3 - 6:24 PM

Jeremy Lin (ankle) is available to play Wednesday vs. the Cavs.

Lin played 22 minutes in a start on Sunday, so there's no reason to believe he won't be out there tonight, particularly with Kemba Walker (knee) set to spend Wednesday's game on the sidelines. Lin could be forced into heavy minutes tonight if Nicolas Batum (toe, questionable) joins Walker on the sidelines, so he could be someone to consider in DFS.
Feb 3 - 11:17 AM

Jeremy Lin (ankle) started Sunday's blowout win in L.A., posting six points, five rebounds and five assists in just 22 minutes of action.

Lin suffered what looked like a nasty ankle sprain on Wednesday but it only took him a few days to recover, to the delight of his fantasy owners. He started tonight because Nicolas Batum (toe) wasn't available, and could earn a few more starts with Batum's return date unclear -- he's already aggravated the injury a few times, so Charlotte may opt to play it safe.
Feb 1 - 12:20 AM

Jeremy Lin (ankle) will start on Sunday vs. the Lakers.

The Hornets are going to be missing Nicolas Batum (toe) and Jeremy Lamb (toe), so this is wonderful news for Charlotte. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is back and Kemba Walker is healthy, but Lin should still see minutes in the 20s tonight. We will let you know how his ankle holds up after the game.
Jan 31 - 8:08 PM

Jeremy Lin (ankle) and Jeremy Lamb (toe) are questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Lakers.

Lin's ankle has been bothering him for a while, but he will do everything in his power to play against his former team. Nicolas Batum (toe) has been ruled out, so the Hornets will have to rely on Troy Daniels a lot more if Lin or Lamb can't play.
Jan 30 - 6:49 PM

Jeremy Lin (ankle) will not play against the Blazers on Friday.

His ankle sprain looked horrible on Wednesday and he should be out for a few games. With Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (shoulder) getting close, Lin's fantasy owners might want to move on here.
Jan 28 - 7:32 PM

Jeremy Lin (right ankle) went to the locker room in the third quarter on Wednesday and will not return.

He was in a lot of pain for about 30 seconds, but then walked back to the locker room slowly under his own power. He did put weight on it, but he was moving slowly. Troy Daniels would be the next man up with this game basically over in garbage time. Lin checked out with four points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one turnover.
Jan 27 - 10:43 PM

Jeremy Lin was excellent in Monday's double-overtime win over the Kings, scoring 20 points with 11 assists, seven boards and two 3-pointers in 50 minutes.

Needless to say, the Hornets really need Lin to step up with Nicolas Batum (toe) in a walking boot and Jeremy Lamb (toe) still on the shelf, and he didn't disappoint. His previous season high for assists was seven, and all things considered his owners will happily live with his three turnovers. Lin needs to be in all lineups until the Hornets are back at full strength.
Jan 26 - 1:44 AM

Jeremy Lin bounced back on Saturday against the Knicks with 26 points, five rebounds, five assists, one block, two 3-pointers and five turnovers in 40 minutes.

That's a big turnaround from a sub-par Friday with 30 minutes while not playing in the clutch. Nicolas Batum (toe) is in a walking boot, so Lin should have some value for at least the next week. If you need help at all right now, he's worth a long look. Backcourt mate Kemba Walker also added 26 points.
Jan 23 - 10:32 PM

Jeremy Lin played 30 minutes against the Magic in a start on Friday, scoring seven points with one rebound, four assists and one 3-pointer.

He did not play in overtime with coach Steve Clifford going with Troy Daniels and Brian Roberts over him instead. Lin did come out flat tonight, but he should better going forward. He's not a must-own player because he'll lose value once Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (shoulder) comes back, but he should have value for the next month.
Jan 22 - 10:18 PM

Jeremy Lin and Spencer Hawes will start in place of Cody Zeller (shoulder) and Nicolas Batum (toe) on Friday against the Magic.

This isn't a surprise because Lin is logging almost all of his minutes at shooting guard right now. He should see minutes in the mid 30s and should be able to score in the teens. He's worth owning in standard leagues until Batum is healthy.
