Jeremy Lin played 15 minutes with nine points, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer against the Warriors on Saturday.
Just like on Friday, he was right at 15 minutes again. That doesn't really feel like a coincidence for the oft-injured Lin and the Nets will obviously take it easy on their highest-paid guard. If you want to pick him up, just remember that he will be seeing a ton of maintenance days going forward. Feb 26 - 1:09 AM

Jeremy Lin played in his first game of 2017 with seven points, two rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer in 15 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

He looked fine and obviously the Nets were going to manage his minutes. He is expected to play in the second half of a back-to-back on Saturday, but expect his minutes to be limited against the Warriors in a homecoming game. He's not a complete must-own player in shallow leagues due to how the Nets will be careful with him.

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) will start Friday night vs. the Nuggets.

This will be Lin's first game action since Dec. 26. He has played in only 12 games this season for the Nets but is averaging 13.9 points, 5.8 assists, 3.1 rebounds, 1.3 treys and 1.3 steals in those contests. Spencer Dinwiddie, who had a few nice games prior to the All-Star break, will get bumped back to the bench. Lin will also play on Saturday vs. the Warriors, assuming he doesn't suffer a setback.

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) is not listed on the injury report and is expected to play Friday night vs. the Nuggets.

Lin has not appeared in a game since the day after Christmas. And he has played in just seven games since the start of November. Being injury prone obviously makes him a risky add, especially because the Nets will err on the side of caution and limit his minutes the rest of the way. However, he has averaged 13.9 points, 5.8 assists, 3.1 rebounds, 1.3 treys and 1.3 steals in the 12 games he's played in this season. He's worth a flier if you have room on your roster.

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) was at practice on Wednesday.

He is expected to play on Friday night to start his second half. Lin has suffered three hamstring strains and the Nets are a near lock to be last in the NBA, so there is little incentive to play him. He is almost certainly going to be limited for the foreseeable future, but feel free to pick him up to see what happens.

Coach Kenny Atkinson said he expects Jeremy Lin (hamstring) to play in the Nets first game following the All-Star break.

Brooklyn embarks on an eight-game road trip immediately following the All-Star break. Their first contest is Friday, Feb. 24 at Denver. Lin has not appeared in a game since the day after Christmas. He is obviously injury prone, but Lin did average 13.9 points, 5.8 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 1.3 3-pointers in the 12 games he has played this season. He's worth a stash if you have room on your roster.
Feb 14 - 1:05 PM

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) won't play vs. the Grizzlies on Monday.

Why the Nets don't just rule him out through the All-Star break is a mystery. He doesn't have a timetable and even when he does return the Nets are likely to give him precautionary DNP-CDs and a minute-limit. The sheer uncertainty of his situation makes it hard to stash him without an open IR spot.
Feb 12 - 4:32 PM

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

He still doesn't have a timetable for a return. Interestingly, Lin was on CNBC this week and he talked about how the team is using data to monitor his load in practice and how the team should continue to keep tabs on him the rest of the way. In the non-TV news side of things, he is taking some shots pregame, but the Nets still won't reveal any plan to get him back yet. If you're stashing him, it could be a while until he's back.
Feb 9 - 2:22 PM

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

The good news is he is coming along. Lin is doing some pre-game shooting during warmups, so he is getting at least somewhat healthy. Still, the Nets keeping Lin on the sidelines isn't all about his health as they really want him to avoid aggravations while also giving their young guys minutes. Maybe he'll be back after the break. Maybe.

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

He was hopeful to return before the All-Star break, but there really doesn't appear to be much hope for that to happen. His fantasy owners should have probably moved on because he would likely be limited upon his return. Isaiah Whitehead is actually playing better these days and is now on the radar, depending on your team needs.

Jeremy Lin stated on Tuesday that he hopes to return to the team within 2-3 weeks.

Last Monday, the Nets announced that Lin had suffered a setback in his rehab and would be sidelined for another 3-5 weeks. It's been eight days since that announcement. The Nets play seven games over the next two weeks, with their final game before the All-Star break being Feb. 15 vs. the Bucks. They then have a full nine days off before their next game (Friday, Feb. 24 in Denver). If they hold Lin out until after the break, it would be a four full weeks since the Nets announcement last week. It's safe to assume Lin and Brooklyn will target the Feb. 24 date.
Jan 31 - 6:09 PM

The Nets announced that Jeremy Lin will miss another 3-5 weeks after aggravating his strained left hamstring.

"During the course of his rehab, Jeremy re-aggravated his strained left hamstring and will be out approximately three to five weeks as he continues to work towards a full recovery," Nets GM Sean Marks said. "We understand and appreciate Jeremy’s competitive desire to get back on the court with his teammates, however, we are going to be cautious with his rehab in order to ensure that he is at full strength once he returns." If you don't have an IR spot, Lin's owners can move on unless they're in a great position in the standings. Spencer Dinwiddie and Isaiah Whitehead have been splitting the PG minutes in Lin's absence and will continue to do so, but standard-league owners should look elsewhere for production.

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) won't play vs. the Spurs on Monday.

Lin has missed 31 games and counting, after missing just 23 games prior to this season during his NBA career. There's no indication of when he might get back on the court, and his absence could be due to more than just his hamstring injury, so he's a hard guy to hold without an IR spot.
Jan 22 - 7:36 PM

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.

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.
