Jeremy Lin missed all six of his shots and finished with two points and one assist in 17 minutes off the bench in Monday's blowout loss.
Lin has been an inconsistent mess this season but the fact remains that he's still putting up late-round value in 12-team leagues and probably at the low-end of his productivity potential. We wouldn't blame you if you dropped him, but with very little true point guard competition it wouldn't be surprising if he's back in fantasy lineups at some point. Dec 16 - 12:54 AM

Jeremy Lin came off L.A.'s bench again on Sunday, finishing a 100-94 road win vs. the Timberwolves with eight points, three rebounds, six assists and two steals in 20 minutes.

The low playing time is a serious concern, but Lin was coming off a 14-point, eight-assist performance in 30 minutes on Friday and he has enough upside to be worth holding a few more weeks. There are no guarantees that Ronnie Price (two points, two assists in 25 minutes) will keep the starting PG job, though immediate changes are unlikely with the Lakers riding a three-game win streak.

Jeremy Lin got back on track with 14 points on 6-of-14 shooting, two threes, two boards, eight assists and one block in 30 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Lin got a cut recommendation from us on Wednesday afternoon and it looks like we jumped the gun. With no real competition at the point guard position he should be owned until he goes through a cold streak of at least a week and probably more. He has mid-round upside and a late-round likelihood.
Dec 13 - 3:45 AM

When asked about Kobe Bryant playing point guard late in the game, Jeremy Lin said he doesn't expect to be in the game.

"I’m assuming I won't be in the game if that’s the case," Lin said. The Lakers are really cooling on Jeremy Lin and he's played in just 20.6 minutes per game in his last four. It's about time to cut him in standard leagues.
Dec 10 - 4:03 PM

Jeremy Lin came off the bench again on Tuesday, finishing with just three points, four assists, one rebound and one steal in 22 minutes.

Things are not looking good for Lin and the fact that he has lost his spot to Ronnie Price speaks volumes. He isn't a must-own player in standard leagues, but owners should give him a couple more games to turn it around before releasing him. Lin said on Sunday that he felt a "sharp pain" in his leg, which may still be bothering him, but there have been no indications that he will miss any time.

Jeremy Lin may now be dealing with a leg injury.

In addition to getting demoted, Lin may now have an injury as well. In his postgame remarks to the media, Lin felt a "sharp pain" in his left leg before going back to the trainer's room for treatment. The Lakers can't afford any more injuries, especially at point guard, so this is definitely something to watch.
Dec 8 - 10:13 AM

Jeremy Lin said his initial tenure with the Lakers is not representative of him as a player.

Lin cited all of the new things going on with the Lakers as one reason he's struggling, and he expressed a clear disappointment about losing his starting job in the process. Lin has had a few nice nights with the Lakers, but he's mostly struggled with both his game and confidence. We'd give Lin at least another three to four games to prove himself.
Dec 8 - 9:51 AM

Jeremy Lin played 20 minutes off the Lakers' bench on Sunday and finished with only three points on 1-of-5 FGs and 1-of-3 FTs.

He added three boards and four assists with one turnover and zero steals, and is now averaging just 20.0 minutes over the Lakers' past three games. It's hard to envision Ronnie Price keeping the PG job and this demotion could just be a wake-up call for Lin, though he appears to have hit the 'snooze' button on Sunday. Fantasy owners in 12-team leagues and deeper should give him another week before making any drastic moves.
Dec 8 - 12:26 AM

Jeremy Lin will move to the bench against the Pelicans on Sunday.

His 0-of-10 from Wednesday probably had a little to do with this, but the Lakers have just been destroyed on the perimeter. Lin's minutes shouldn't dip too much and a move to the bench might help his usage rate, so his owners shouldn't consider him as a must-drop or anything. He is the No. 110 player so far this season and will probably stay in that neighborhood.
Dec 7 - 2:39 PM

Jeremy Lin hit 5-of-8 shots (including a three) for 14 points but managed just two assists to round out his stat line in 19 minutes of action.

Lin is going to deal with a lot of road bumps this year but when it's all said and done he's the only real point guard option the Lakers have. Just hang on, bench him when he gets real cold and try to lean toward using him in four-game weeks.
Dec 6 - 12:21 AM

Jeremy Lin admitted during a recent interview that he doesn't feel comfortable in Byron Scott's Princeton-based offense, but he's learning to make it work.

Lin has been inconsistent during his inaugural season in LA, but he's currently averaging 11.8 points, 5.1 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.1 three-pointers per game. Lin can be viewed as a low-end point guard in standard leagues, and with no one to question him for playing time, he'll continue to offer serviceable numbers as the season goes on.
Dec 5 - 10:16 AM

Jeremy Lin missed all 10 of his shots and failed to score on Wednesday, finishing with five points before being benched for Ronnie Price down the stretch.

John Wall basically destroyed Lin tonight, which shouldn't come as a surprise. He'll bounce back and the benching probably isn't permanent, but it is a situation to keep an eye on just in case. Price hit all four of his shots and had 11 points and four assists off the bench.
Dec 3 - 10:44 PM

Jeremy Lin scored 18 points on 8-of-15 shooting (including two threes) with two rebounds, 11 assists and four steals in Friday's home loss to the Wolves.

Lin is playing at a top 65-85 level after a terrible start and as long as he stays healthy he'll probably return solid mid-round value.
Nov 29 - 4:38 AM

Jeremy Lin continues to play through a tender back and hit 4-of-9 shots for 14 points, four rebounds, five assists, two steals, a block and two 3-pointers in Wednesday's loss to the Grizzlies.

Despite the back issue, Lin has averaged 31 minutes, 13.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.2 3-pointers on 57 percent shooting over his last five games. And that's a vast improvement over his early-season struggles.
Nov 27 - 2:57 AM

Jeremy Lin (back) wasn't limited in Sunday's disappointing loss to Denver, scoring 17 points on 8-of-15 shooting with three rebounds, five assists, two steals and three turnovers in 36 minutes.

Lin missed Saturday's practice as a precaution but his status was never truly in doubt, and he'll get a few extra days of rest before Wednesday's game vs. the red-hot Grizzlies. After a slow start to the season, Lin has steadily improved over the past four games, averaging 13.3 points on 60.5 percent shooting, with 2.5 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 1.3 steals.
