Jeremy Lin scored 18 points with four rebounds, eight assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Hawks on Sunday.
The Nets are actually a respectable basketball team when Lin plays, posting a 9-19 record when he suits up. Yes, that's not great, but a 32.1 win percentage puts them a lot closer to the Knicks than how the Nets have played without Lin. He's also turned it up over his last three since returning from injury, averaging 15.3 points, 2.7 boards, 5.3 assists, .07 steals, 0.7 blocks and 1.0 treys. There is always risk on playing him for weekly leagues, but he makes sense to start in most cases right now. Mar 26 - 5:14 PM

Jeremy Lin scored 14 points with one rebound, three assists and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Wizards on Friday.

He did have a very slight tweak of his right ankle in the first quarter, but he did stay in the game. The Nets will likely keep Lin's minutes under 30, so his fantasy upside isn't the greatest for owners needing volume stats.
Mar 24 - 9:55 PM

Jeremy Lin (ankle) finished with 13 points, five assists, three boards, one 3-pointer and two turnovers in 21 minutes in his return to the lineup against the Suns on Thursday.

Lin ended up missing just one game after spraining his ankle on Sunday. He did not seem bothered by the injury on Thursday. The game was a complete blowout, with the Nets winning by 28 points, or else Lin would have likely played more than just 21 minutes. The good news is that the limited workload tonight probably increases the chances he won't be rested and will play normal minutes on Friday.

Jeremy Lin (ankle) will start against the Suns on Thursday.

His ankle sprain from Sunday will only cost him one game. Lin's playing time was on the rise and he even played 30 minutes last Thursday, so the Nets may get him back up to minutes in the upper 20s. With Lin back, Spencer Dinwiddie will move back to the bench and Isaiah Whitehead will lose playing time. Lin is safe to start tonight, but the Nets may take it easy on him for Friday night.

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said he expects Jeremy Lin (ankle) to play on Thursday vs. the Suns.

"My gut is it’s very positive," Atkinson said. "I like what I see in him shooting etcetera." Atkinson previously said that Spencer Dinwiddie will start the rest of the season, and with Archie Goodwin making a case for more minutes, Lin's workload will likely be monitored. He may have to play off the ball more as well. Lin could be shut down at a moment's notice, so his outlook going forward isn't the best.

Jeremy Lin (ankle) is probable to play against the Suns on Thursday.

His Sunday ankle sprain looks like it's only going to cost him one game. With Lin back, Spencer Dinwiddie and Isaiah Whitehead will be losing minutes. Lin is probably worth owning, but the Nets may take it easy on him to get a look at their younger guards.
Mar 22 - 4:57 PM

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said he is "hopeful" that Jeremy Lin (ankle) will be able to play Thursday vs. the Suns.

Atkinson said the decision on Lin would be made on Thursday. Even if Lin is able to suit up, he will likely be placed on a strict minutes limit. Nonetheless, Lin's return will greatly reduce the fantasy value of Spencer Dinwiddie and Archie Goodwin.
Mar 22 - 1:50 PM

Jeremy Lin (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Pistons.

Lin was doubtful heading into this one, so it's not surprising at all to see the oft-injured guard hit the sidelines. Head coach Kenny Atkinson has already said that Spencer Dinwiddie will close out the year as Brooklyn's starting point guard, so Lin figures to lose some value once he's eventually cleared as he'll be confined to a reserve role. Brook Lopez should be more active on offense with Lin watching from the sidelines. Atkinson did say that Lin is "trending positive" when asked about Lin's injury situation, but at this point in the season, we wouldn't recommend clinging to injured players.

Jeremy Lin (ankle) is doubtful to play Tuesday vs. Detroit.

While Lin has downplayed the injury, the Nets have absolutely no incentive to rush him back to the court, so there's a good chance he could be looking at a multi-game absence here despite being listed as "day-to-day." Spencer Dinwiddie will be drawing the start in his place, and there will be more minutes available for guys like Archie Goodwin and Isaiah Whitehead. Unfortunately, at this juncture in the fantasy season, Lin is a cut candidate in all leagues without an IR-spot.

Jeremy Lin said that he's just day-to-day with his right ankle injury and he doesn't believe it will be a serious issue moving forward.

Lin really played down the injury, calling it just a tweak, and said it wasn't comparable to the hamstring injury. Still, Kenny Atkinson saying on Monday that Spencer Dinwiddie will remain in the starting five to close out the year hints that Lin could be spending at least some time on the sidelines, and if he's brought off the bench once he is cleared, it could be tough for him to have much value in standard leagues.
Mar 20 - 2:37 PM

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said that Jeremy Lin's ankle is still being evaluated.

The Nets aren't being very transparent here, but the "belief" is that Lin is likely day-to-day. The Nets have nothing to play for with the worst record in the NBA all but locked up, so Lin is a prime shut-down candidate going forward. For now, we'll consider him questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Pistons. Spencer Dinwiddie is expected to start at PG the rest of the way, but he's not a great pickup.
Mar 20 - 1:13 PM

Jeremy Lin (right ankle) will not return to Sunday's game against the Mavs.

He tweaked his right ankle on a drive and checked out on the next possession. Lin was on the exercise bike a few minutes later and looked like he was going to try to come back in, but he went to the locker room at some point in the second quarter. It didn't look bad, but of course the Nets will be very careful. Spencer Dinwiddie should play most of the point guard minutes while Isaiah Whitehead gets some added run, too. We might see a little more Archie Goodwin. Dinwiddie is only a lukewarm add if you're desperate for a point guard.
Mar 19 - 12:58 PM

Jeremy Lin scored 10 points with seven rebounds, six assists and two 3-pointers in 21 minutes against the Celtics on Friday.

As expected, the Nets kept Lin's minutes down in the second half of a back-to-back set after his 30 minutes on Thursday. The Nets don't have another back-to-back set until Thursday, so expect to see a few games of Lin getting closer to 30 minutes.
Mar 17 - 11:35 PM

Jeremy Lin scored 15 points with four rebounds, eight assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Knicks on Thursday.

That's the most minutes he's played in a game since returning from injury on Feb. 24. With the Nets at home on Friday night, it'll be interesting to see if coach Kenny Atkinson opts to rest Lin. The Nets are not expected to shootaround on Friday, so his fantasy owners will have to wait until pre-game before we find out his status. If he plays, that would be huge for his value going forward. Lin made it clear he really wants to play.
Mar 16 - 11:13 PM

Jeremy Lin (ankle) practiced on Wednesday.

Lin briefly exited Tuesday's game after rolling his left ankle, but he played through it, and him going through Wednesday's practice is a great sign regarding his availability for Thursday's game in New York. Owners can expect to get another update following Thursday morning's shootaround.
