Jeremy Lin had 12 points, two rebounds, nine assists, four steals and a 3-pointer on 5-of-12 shooting in Wednesday's loss.
Lin is kind of rolling right now, averaging 15.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.2 3-pointers on 44 percent shooting over his last five games. Pick him up if you he's available and you need a point guard. Mar 5 - 1:25 AM

Jeremy Lin sank a late 3-pointer in Charlotte on Tuesday, finishing the Lakers' one-point loss with 23 points, six rebounds, eight assists, two steals and one block in 30 minutes.

Lin made 9-of-16 shots overall and he's been gaining steam with increased minutes and offensive responsibilities since the All-Star break. Despite averaging under 28 minutes in his previous five games, Lin was already helping fantasy owners with 17.0 points on 50.0 percent FGs and 75.0 percent FTs, as well as 2.8 boards, 5.0 assists and 1.2 steals. Tonight's eruption clinches the deal and he shouldn't be floating on your waiver wire.

Lakers head coach Byron Scott said he's happy with the way that Jeremy Lin has been playing recently.

"I am really happy with the way he’s starting to show that consistent effort for every single night," Scott said of Lin after Sunday's loss to the Thunder. "He’s playing the way I think he’s capable of playing." While Lin has had an inconsistent season, he's stepped up his play as of late and is averaging 17.0 points, 2.8 rebounds, 5.0 assists, and 1.2 steals in 27.8 minutes over his last five games. As long as he can continue to his pace, he's worth owning in most fantasy leagues.

Jeremy Lin continued his impressive play in a loss to the Thunder on Sunday, scoring 20 points on 7-of-14 shooting with eight assists, six boards, three steals and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

Distant memories of Linsanity are slowly starting to surface, as Lin has been a new man since the All-Star break, averaging 17.0 points, 5.0 assists, 2.8 boards, 1.2 steals and 0.8 3-pointers in 27.8 minutes per game. While it is highly unlikely that he takes over as the starting PG with rookie Jordan Clarkson playing well, Lin has been playing a lot of minutes at shooting guard which is huge for his value moving forward. Don't look now, but Lin is worth a flier in most leagues to see if he can keep up his torrid pace.

Jeremy Lin scored 14 points on 4-of-10 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds and six assists in 29 minutes off the bench in the Lakers' 101-93 win over the Bucks on Friday.

Lin has hovered around the bottom of the top-150 over the last month but has picked it up over the last week or so. Bryon Scott has said that he's thinking of starting Lin at some point, but that's not necessarily the driver of his value. He's worth a pickup though for the chance he can make a late-season run.

Coach Bryon Scott said he is thinking of starting Jeremy Lin at some point.

The change is not going to happen tonight with the Lakers sticking with the same starting five. Lin may start over Jordan Clarkson or the team could go with a two-PG lineup, as well. Clarkson has played next to Lin for 23.3 percent of his minutes this season, so this isn't too bold and there won't be many fantasy implications here outside of Wayne Ellington being less appealing.

The Lakers stole an overtime win vs. the Celtics on Sunday behind Jeremy Lin, who scored 25 points and handed out six assists in just 30 minutes off the bench.

Lin didn't play during the first quarter and seemed headed for another lousy night, but he caught fire as the game went on and was the difference-maker in L.A.'s comeback victory. The Lakers have won two of their past 18 games and they're headed nowhere this season, which is another reason to distrust Lin's ROS value, but he's at least worth stashing on your bench in deeper leagues.
Feb 23 - 12:56 AM

Jeremy Lin scored 18 points on 6-of-9 shooting (1-of-4 3PTs, 5-of-8 FTs) with one rebound, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes off the bench on Friday.

We don't trust Byron Scott or Lin as far as we can throw them these days, but this is a decent showing for a guy who has been lacking in both confidence and production lately. He's not a must-add player or even a strong add, but he's worth keeping an eye on in case he can get on track with a terribly shallow squad.

Nick Young said that Jeremy Lin should have "focused on passing a little bit more."

"Especially when Kobe was out there, [Jeremy] needed to drop dimes," Young said. This is the least surprising quote of the week. Lin has a somewhat high 20.8 usage rate while he's on the court with Young this season, so Young would probably rather see it fall to like 2.08. Lin hasn't played well at all and isn't worth owning in standard leagues.
Feb 18 - 2:41 PM

The Rockets remain high on Jeremy Lin and they are expected to be one of his primary suitors when he becomes an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of the 2014-15 season.

Lin has not worked well in Byron Scott's system, so the marriage between him and the Lakers will likely be short-lived. However, Lin was traded away from Houston in a salary dumping move to make a bid for Chris Bosh, and it's not clear if Lin would be interested in reuniting with the Rockets for a third go-round. This will be a story to watch during the offseason, but for this year, Lin isn't a great guy to own in standard leagues.
Feb 12 - 4:49 PM

Jeremy Lin came off the bench and missed all six of his shot attempts for two points and two assists in 21 minutes.

This is just another reason that Jordan Clarkson should be owned in all leagues until further notice.
Feb 12 - 1:19 AM

Updating a previous report, Jeremy Lin (stomach flu) said that he will play Sunday vs. the Cavs.

Lin was questionable heading into this one, so he's obviously not 100 percent, and he could have his minutes trimmed a bit today. Lin has played well in the Lakers previous two games, but he's been up-and-down throughout the season, and remains a risky option in daily leagues.
Feb 8 - 2:30 PM

Jeremy Lin is battling gastroenteritis and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cavs.

Lin will warm up to see how he feels, but it's looking like he's closer to doubtful than questionable. If Lin is unable to go on Sunday, look for Jordan Clarkson to get all the run he can handle, with Ronnie Price and Nick Young seeing some extended minutes. Stay tuned.

Jeremy Lin played well off the bench on Friday against the Magic during a 103-97 loss with 14 points, one rebound, three assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 22 minutes.

He bounced back nicely from making only 3-of-15 (20 percent) in his previous two games. Even with Lin playing well, he still didn't play down the stretch in the fourth or in overtime. Jordan Clarkson is clearly the better player to own.
Feb 6 - 9:42 PM

Jeremy Lin came off the bench and played 30 minutes, but hit just 2-of-12 shots for 11 points, three rebounds, six assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer in Wednesday's OT loss to the Bucks.

Jordan Clarkson was benched tonight and Lin has been becoming more relevant over the last few games. Clarkson is still the guy with upside that you want to own, but Lin could be worth grabbing if his minutes trend continues in the right direction.
