Jeremy Lin came off the bench again on Wednesday and had 13 points, three rebounds, five assists and a block on 5-of-9 shooting in 25 minutes.
We still don't know if Lin or Ronnie Price will start on opening night, but we're still listing Lin at No. 1 on the depth chart. Even if he comes off the bench, he should get the majority of minutes and is still the guy you'll want to target on draft night. We're hoping he's coming off the bench as a precaution for his tender ankle, but it sounds like Byron Scott is considering using Lin with the reserves. Stay tuned. Oct 23 - 12:40 AM

Jeremy Lin returned from two sprained ankles on Tuesday, notching 15 points (including 8-of-10 FTs), four rebounds, five dimes and two steals off the Lakers' bench.

Ronnie Price started at PG and coach Byron Scott said he likes how Lin has played with the second unit. Lin was returning from injury and we still expect him to get the nod on opening night. He'll hold solid value even if he does begin the season the focal point of the second unit's offense, and the return of Nick Young could also bump him back into the starting five. If you drafted Lin, or plan to, there's no need to panic.

Jeremy Lin, who has missed three straight games with a sprained ankle, said he will start on Tuesday, but it's not going to happen.

Ronnie Price will start in his place, but Lin is expected to return from a three-game absence with a sprained ankle off the bench. The Lakers are running very thin at point guard and if Lin can stay healthy this season, he's going to get a ton of minutes and production. He looks like an enticing sleeper pick once the big names are gone.

Jeremy Lin (sprained ankles) will return to action during Tuesday's exhibition vs. the visiting Suns.

"Ankles are finally feeling better," Lin wrote. "Excited to get back on the court tonight!" Steve Nash's ongoing sciatica pain has him questionable for the start of the regular season, and the starting PG job should belong to Lin all season regardless of Nash's health. He has enough statistical versatility to return mid-round value, and his late-round ADP makes him a solid value in most fantasy drafts.

Jeremy Lin (ankle) will sit out Sunday's exhibition, as expected, allowing A.J. Price to start at PG.

Lin is likely to start at PG even if Steve Nash's nerve damage subsides prior to opening night, which seems very doubtful. He averaged 15.6 points, 1.4 threes, 3.3 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.2 steals on a 36-minute-per-game basis with Houston last year, which should set fantasy owners' expectations for 2014-15.

Jeremy Lin's exit from Houston was not how he envisioned it, but he's not bitter towards the franchise that traded him for close to nothing.

"When I first got [to Houston], I was supposed to be the guy and they were supposed to kind of hand the torch to me," said Lin. "And I ended up getting traded away basically for nothing. Actually, they had to give up a draft pick to convince someone else to take me. Pretty much given away for nothing. Definitely not how I envisioned it." Jeremy Lin is now in a much better situation in LA, and with Steve Nash unable to stay healthy, Lin will see heavy minutes in the Lakers' rotation. He makes for an excellent late-round selection with plenty of upside.

Jeremy Lin (ankle) is unlikely to suit up for Sunday's exhibition against the Jazz.

He was spotted getting up some jumpers at Saturday's practice which is a good indication that he is making progress from his recently sprained ankle. We expect him to be ready for the season opener and the Lakers are just being cautious at the moment. Lin projects as a solid late-round selection as he should see plenty of minutes in LA's backcourt this season.
Oct 18 - 4:25 PM

Jeremy Lin (ankle) is hopeful that he'll be able to suit up for Sunday's preseason game vs. the Jazz.

The Lakers could certainly use him back, as they've been running with Ronnie Price as their starting point guard with both Lin and Steve Nash (back) on the sidelines. While Lin may not enter the season as the team's starting point guard, he still makes for an intriguing late-round selection with some upside, as there's basically no way Nash makes it through a full season. Lin should be able to offer some assists, steals, and 3-pointers to a fantasy squad, while hitting free throws at an efficient rate.
Oct 17 - 3:54 PM

Jeremy Lin (ankle) will sit out the Lakers' preseason game against the Jazz on Thursday.

Lin started some light running, and is targeting Sunday for a return to action on the court. Resting his ankle may become an even bigger priority for the Lakers now that Steve Nash's health is already a major concern. His fantasy value jumps dramatically if he indeed takes over starting duties.
Oct 16 - 4:14 PM

Jeremy Lin (ankle) did some light running at practice on Wednesday and hopes to return to game action on Sunday.

He's getting closer to a return and he should have plenty of minutes on his plate. Lin will be asked to drive a lot and it should help him facilitate the offense. Fantasy owners will probably have to reach a round or two in order to pick him up, but it looks like it could be worth it.
Oct 15 - 4:50 PM

Jeremy Lin is now looking like the starting point guard for the Lakers, especially given the fact Steve Nash is already sidelined again with a "sciatica problem."

Nash is dealing with serious nerve-related pain and it's unclear how much he'll be able to play this season. Expect to see Lin out there on opening night and we doubt he gives up the starting point guard job as long as he can stay healthy.
Oct 15 - 1:18 AM

Jeremy Lin (ankle) did not practice on Tuesday, but coach Byron Scott confirmed that he may start at PG ahead of Steve Nash this season.

With Nash already battling nerve-related pain, the decision could be made for Scott before opening night. Lin would inject some much-needed penetration into L.A.'s lineup, and he's worth a late-round pick for anyone in need of a competent PG. On a per-36-minute basis last year, he averaged 15.6 points, 1.4 triples, 3.3 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.2 steals.
Oct 14 - 4:23 PM

Jeremy Lin (ankle) did not practice on Monday, and will be a game-time decision for Thursday's preseason game vs. the Jazz.

Byron Scott said that Lin has a 50-50 chance of suiting up, so this injury doesn't sound very serious. Steve Nash is currently penciled in as the starter, but it's extremely unlikely he can make it through a full 82-game season, and once Nash goes down Lin will get all the minutes he can handle. Lin has some decent upside, and makes for a solid late-round target.
Oct 13 - 3:59 PM

Jeremy Lin (sprained ankle) will not play in Sunday's exhibition.

Byron Scott said that Lin could return Thursday vs. the Jazz, so it doesn't sound like a serious sprain that would jeopardize his status for L.A.'s season opener. Steve Nash has looked good throughout the preseason, but that shouldn't dissuade owners from drafting Lin in the late rounds.
Oct 12 - 8:27 PM

Jeremy Lin sprained his left ankle on Saturday.

He reportedly suffered the injury at the end of practice on Saturday and is expected to be re-evaluated on Sunday. Lin has looked sharp during pre-season and could be in line for a lot of minutes considering Steve Nash's injury history. He should be one of your targets late in standard formats.
