Jeremy Lin (hamstring) has been ruled out for Friday against the Pelicans.
We don't even know when Lin is going to practice yet, so he's out indefinitely. Lin has hinted that him missing games is more than just about him being healthy, so the team may want to look at their younger players. Isaiah Whitehead and Spencer Dinwiddie have split the minutes for the most part, but neither are worth owning in standard leagues. Jan 19 - 6:23 PM

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) will not play Tuesday vs. Toronto.

He's out indefinitely, and we're going to stop updating his status until he clears some sort of benchmark for getting back to the court (he's still not practicing). Isaiah Whitehead and Spencer Dinwiddie will continue to man the point guard position in Lin's absence, but neither guy is worth a roster spot in most settings.

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) will not play on Sunday against the Rockets.

He wants to play in the next week or so, but some comments from the Nets suggest Lin sitting out is more than just getting him healthy. In other words, Lin is likely out for quite a few games despite how he said he's healing faster than his last hamstring strain. If you're going to stash him, you will need some serious patience.

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) will not play Friday night in Toronto.

No surprise here, as Lin has been ruled out indifferently. On Thursday, Lin day say he hoped to return within a "couple of weeks." Lin is a notoriously slow healer, so it should be noted that the team has still not given an official timetable.
Jan 13 - 1:05 PM

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) said in a Chinese-language video he is hopeful to return in a couple weeks.

He said the recovery is progressing faster than last time. Lin has said he's going through some strengthen tests on his hamstring. The Nets obviously won't be rushing him back and there's a chance he is out beyond the two weeks. He's worth a stash, but he doesn't have a specific target date.

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) is out again for Thursday night against the Pelicans.

This will be his eighth game out of the lineup. Lin doesn't have a timetable to return and clearly the Nets won't be in a hurry to bring him back after he aggravated his hamstring strain. With him out, we've seen some Spencer Dinwiddie as the backup point guard and Isaiah Whitehead splitting the minutes as the starter.

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Hawks.

He remains without an official timetable to return, and thus far, we haven't had any reports of him ramping up his activities at practice. It doesn't seem like Lin is close to a return, so he's a cut-candidate in leagues without an IR-spot. Isaiah Whitehead, Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert will continue to split Lin's minutes, with LeVert offering the most upside out of that group.

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday against the 76ers.

While his hamstring strain is not at bad as the last one, the Nets are going to be very, very careful to prevent another injury to their point guard. With Lin out again, Isaiah Whitehead should get most of the minutes at the one after Spencer Dinwiddie laid an egg on Friday.

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) will not play Friday vs. Cleveland.

This is certainly not surprising news, as we learned earlier this week that Lin should be considered out indefinitely and still does not have an official timetable for return. Isaiah Whitehead will likely continue to start, but play sparingly, while Sean Kilpatrick and Caris LeVert remain the biggest beneficiaries.
Jan 6 - 12:45 PM

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) remains without an official timetable to return.

Lin confirmed that this most recent hamstring injury isn't as severe as the one that cost him 17 games on the sidelines earlier in the season and that the injury being in a different area of his hamstring can be viewed as a positive. He's already begun shooting, and he's made that progression quicker than he did the first time around, but Lin also hinted that he'll likely miss at least another week of action. Sean Kilpatrick, Caris LeVert and Bojan Bogdanovic will all benefit in his absence.

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) won't play Monday vs. Utah.

This will be Lin's third straight game on the sidelines, and while Brooklyn has said that this new hamstring injury isn't as severe as the first one, they also haven't even hinted at a timetable. Sean Kilpatrick and Isaiah Whitehead will be splitting Lin's minutes in his absence, with Kilpatrick offering the most upside, and owners in standard leagues without an IR-spot probably need to consider selling Lin for pennies on the dollar or outright cutting him if you're really struggling in the standings.
Jan 1 - 5:38 PM

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) will not play against the Wizards on Friday.

The good news is the Nets say this hamstring strain isn't as bad as the last one. However, the way they talked about the lingering effects of the injury last time suggests they are going to keep him out for an extended period of time. With him out, Isaiah Whitehead should start and get around 20 minutes while Randy Foye and Spencer Dinwiddie get the rest of the minutes at the one. Sean Kilpatrick also gets a big bump and is really the only standard leagues option.

Sean Marks said that Jeremy Lin's strained left hamstring is not as severe as the last one.

The first hamstring injury forced Lin to the sidelines for 17 games, and while this one might not be as severe, the Nets have no reason to rush him back sitting on one of the worst records in the league. Lin has already been ruled out for Brooklyn's two-game road trip, so the earliest we could see him back in action would be Monday vs. Utah, and that feels optimistic. For what it's worth, Marks said that Lin is in "good spirits," and that the injury is in a different part of his hamstring than last time.

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) is not traveling with the Nets for their two-game road trip.

He's already been ruled out for Wednesday's game, and it looks like he'll miss Friday's game in Washington as well. The Nets still haven't updated his status, which isn't all that encouraging, and with Brooklyn sitting on one of the worst records in the Eastern Conference it wouldn't be all that surprising to see Lin get hit with another lengthy absence. Isaiah Whitehead is likely going to move back into the starting five, but Sean Kilpatrick is the true beneficiary here.

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

Lin could be looking at another lengthy absence after aggravating his hamstring injury on Monday, and it'll be Isaiah Whitehead and Sean Kilpatrick picking up the slack in his absence with Kilpatrick offering the most upside. For now, we'll be considering Lin doubtful for Friday's game in Washington.
