Jeremy Lin (hamstring) played some 1-on-1 with Caris LeVert on Friday.
In case you missed it, he is still out for Saturday against the Spurs. The Nets continue to rule Lin out way before his game action and he doesn't have a target date. Clearly, they're in no rush to bring him back, but Lin makes sense as a stash. Isaiah Whitehead will look to build off his strong Wednesday and has some value in points formats. Dec 9 - 3:16 PM

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) will not play Saturday in San Antonio.

We seem to get frequent reports that Lin is progressing and looking good in practice, only to be told that he is not yet ready to play in games. Throughout his career, Lin has been hesitant to play unless he is 100 percent healthy. This seems to currently be the case. If you have been patient and held onto Lin this long, it certainly makes sense to hold him on your roster and hope he returns sooner rather than later. Isaiah Whitehead played his best game on Wednesday and could get more run, but he's not a strong asset in standard leagues.

Sean Marks said he suspects that Jeremy Lin (hamstring) will be able to return to the court "pretty soon," although he'll remain on the sidelines for Wednesday's game vs. Denver.

"He’s so vocal, still at practice, in the locker room and has been from day one when he was out with his injury," said Marks. "He’s progressing well. I obviously don’t want to put a time limit or a day, but I suspect it pretty soon." Lin reportedly looked good while going through his shooting drills on Tuesday, but he's still yet to go through a full practice with the team, and until that happens owners can plan on being without him. He was a top-60 guy before going down, so we'd recommend staying patient.

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) went through shooting drills on Tuesday, but is not yet practicing fully with the team.

Coach Kenny Atkinson told reporters that Jeremy Lin is progressing each day and that Lin is 'anxious' to return, but the team has still yet to set a timetable. Lin has now missed 15 games due to the hamstring strain. Unfortunately, Lin owners will need to remain patient and hope for good news soon. Isaiah Whitehead will continue to start in place of Lin, but Sean Kilpatrick remains the player to own.

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

Monday will be Lin's 15th consecutive game on the sidelines, and the Nets' haven't given any indication that he's getting close to a return. Isaiah Whitehead will continue to start in his absence, but Sean Kilpatrick remains the primary beneficiary. Lin is worth holding onto in most leagues.

Jeremy Lin (strained left hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's game vs. the Bucks.

This will be the 14th straight game Lin has missed due to his nagging hamstring injury. Isiah Whitehead will likely draw the start on Saturday. Sean Kilpatrick will also continue to see extended minutes. Kilpatrick has been scoring hot of late. Over the Nets last five games, Kilpatrick is averaging 22.6 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 2.4 3-pointers, while shooting 47.6 percent from the floor and 37.5 percent from downtown.
Dec 2 - 1:48 PM

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) will not play against the Bucks on Thursday.

He doesn't a timetable to return. The Nets are really taking it easy on Lin and will wait until he's 100 percent healthy. Hamstring injuries can linger, so that's likely the reasoning to keep him out. Isaiah Whitehead will get at least one more start while Sean Kilpatrick also benefits.

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) still has no timetable to return.

Coach Kenny Atkinson said Lin is "making strides" and that the PG is hoping to return to practice soon. It's probably safe to rule him out for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers because the Nets aren't going to let him play until he goes through a full practice. Isaiah Whitehead and Sean Kilpatrick will continue to benefit while Lin is out, with Kilpatrick being the better fantasy option.
Nov 28 - 1:21 PM

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) remains out for Sunday against the Kings.

The Nets continue to rule him out before game action. The Nets have been saying Lin has been "progressing" since last week, but obviously that doesn't mean much. Isaiah Whitehead looks like he'll have at least a couple more starts, but isn't worth owning in most leagues. Lin should be stashed in almost all leagues.

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

This will be the ninth straight game Lin has missed due to the injury to his left hamstring. It seemed Lin was making solid progress when it was reported that he looked good in lengthy workouts earlier this week. However, the Nets are taking a cautious approach, as hamstring injuries can linger for months if not properly healed. Sean Kilpatrick and Isaiah Whitehead will continue to see the lion's share of minutes at point guard in place of Lin.

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

"I think with all of us, we’re super focused on the long term approach," Kenny Atkinson said of Lin. "I know from a coaching standpoint I prefer to take a cautious approach and I know my performance team agrees with that... We want to make sure he progresses the right way and when he returns to play, he’s ready to go." Hamstring injuries can linger, so this cautious approach does make sense. Lin was able to get in a hard 45-minute workout on Tuesday, so he is progressing, and for now we'll consider him questionable for Friday's game against the Pacers.
Nov 23 - 9:07 AM

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) was spotted going through a hard 45-minute workout during Monday's practice.

Lin reportedly looked good during his workout, and while he remains without an official timetable to return, Wednesday vs. the Celtics seems like a realistic potential return date. Owners can expect to get a few more updates leading up to Wednesday's tip, and if he is able to get back out there, Isaiah Whitehead would return to the bench and Sean Kilpatrick's value would take a hit.
Nov 21 - 2:08 PM

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) will not play Sunday vs. Portland.

Head coach Kenny Atkinson said that Lin has been "progressing well" and he's "on schedule" in his rehab, but he's not ready to put a definitive timetable on Lin's potential return date. Sunday was never a realistic option for Lin's return, but there's a chance we can see him back in action for Wednesday's home game against the Celtics. Sean Kilpatrick and Isaiah Whitehead will continue to man the point guard spot sans Lin, with Kilpatrick offering the most upside.
Nov 20 - 3:17 PM

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

He was re-evaluated on Thursday and the results could be revealed on Friday morning. Lin is still very unlikely to play on Sunday afternoon against the Blazers as he recovers from his injury back on Nov. 2. While he's out, Sean Kilpatrick gets the biggest boost with Isaiah Whitehead and Yogi Ferrell getting minutes behind him.
Nov 17 - 4:10 PM

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) is not expected to play against the Thunder on Friday.

There is some hope he can return in the next few games, but there is no further update on his status. The Nets will have a shootaround in Oklahoma City on Friday morning and could have an updated timetable. If he is out again, Sean Kilpatrick will run the offense while Yogi Ferrell and Isaiah Whitehead fight for the backup minutes.
