Jeremy Lin

  • Jeremy Lin - G - Toronto Raptors

    Jeremy Lin scored nine points on 4-of-9 shooting with seven rebounds, an assist, a block and a 3-pointer on Thursday.

    Lin started for Kyle Lowry (ankle) but still only logged 21 minutes. He's starting to look more comfortable on the Raptors, but the team is too loaded for him to really break any fantasy ground.

  • Jeremy Lin - G - Toronto Raptors

    Jeremy Lin led all Raptors reserves in scoring on Friday with 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting, adding one rebound, three assists and two 3s in 22 minutes.

    Lin finally found his range as a Raptor tonight. Those treys were his first couple since moving to Toronto. He was 0-for-17 from deep before finally knocking down his first. He's been a deep-league option at best lately and has been hit or miss, limiting him to being more of a stream target when the Raps have four-game weeks.

    Jeremy Lin did not play well in his start for Kawhi Leonard as he had just one point on 0-of-8 shooting in 25 minutes of action against the Pistons on Sunday.

    He had a lot of shots roll off the rim and nothing was really going his way this game. All he contributed was one rebound, two assists and one steal. Lin is not worth owning in any formats and the move to the Raptors has hurt his value more than it has helped it.

    Jeremy Lin will start for the resting Kawhi Leonard against the Pistons on Sunday.

    OG Anunoby got the assignment the last time Leonard sat but this move isn't too surprising considering that the Raptors leaned on Fred VanVleet to start whenever one of their core five was out earlier in the season. Now that Lin's had some time to fit in with his new team, he'll fill that role while VanVleet is out. Danny Green will slide down to small forward today as a result.

  • Jeremy Lin - G - Toronto Raptors

    Jeremy Lin made his Raptors debut on Wednesday night, logging 25 minutes and posting eight points (3-for-7 shooting), five rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block.

    Lin got a big ovation when he checked in and stole the ball for his first touch, though he also turned it over trying to set up Pascal Siakam on the break. There was a lot of feeling out in this one but Lin still emerged with a solid line. He could easily play this much every night over the next few weeks with Fred VanVleet out, so give Lin a look if you want to round out your roster with a point guard.

  • Jeremy Lin - G - Toronto Raptors

    Jeremy Lin is officially a member of the Raptors and will play on Wednesday night against the Wizards.

    Nick Nurse said that Lin will be "backup one" tonight, so he's going right into the Fred VanVleet role. We'd expect him to play less than FVV's 26.8 mpg tonight with Norman Powell and Patrick McCaw also stepping up. Lin will shift into more of a combo guard role when VanVleet returns but will be Kyle Lowry's backup for the time being. He's a potential late-round option if you're hurting in the backcourt.

  • Jeremy Lin - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Jeremy Lin is expected to make his Raptors debut on Wednesday night against the Wizards.

    It's not a sure thing, as Lin won't clear waivers until 5:00 PM EST on Wednesday — the game tips off at 7:30. The Raptors would save some cash on their tax bill if they wait to get Lin into the mix, and they could also want him to go through a practice with the team before sending him out on the floor. That said, the injury to Fred VanVleet does make it likely that Lin gets into Wednesday's game. He'll have low-end value for the next three-plus weeks while FVV is out.

  • Jeremy Lin - G - Atlanta Hawks

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Jeremy Lin is finalizing a buy-out with the Hawks and is expected to sign with the Raptors.

    The Hawks are clearly looking to tank the rest of the season away and Jeremy Lin is looking to join a championship caliber contender. It seems to be a good fit as the Raptors just traded Delon Wright and have Fred VanVLeet dealing with a thumb injury. He was only playing 19.6 minutes per game on the Hawks and his playing time and opportunity should definitely be in for a slight boost.

  • Jeremy Lin - G - Atlanta Hawks

    While the Hawks have determined not to buy out any of their veterans unless specifically asked to do so, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports that Jeremy Lin would likely request a buyout if his representation can find a team that would give him more playing time than the Hawks.

    Lin has averaged 19.6 minutes per game this season, the lowest since his 29-game stint with the Warriors as a rookie. He's also seen his minutes cut from 23.3 per game in January to just 16.5 in February, and with free agency on the horizon it'd probably behoove Lin to find a spot where he can show off his game a bit more. A solid depth guard, Lin would figure to be a fairly popular name on the buyout market if he did end up leaving Atlanta.

  • Jeremy Lin - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Jeremy Lin scored 13 points on 3-of-8 shooting with a 3-pointer, four assists and two rebounds on Monday.

    Lin balled out for the Hawks today and it's good to see him looking healthy on the court, but the bad lines come in bunches and the good ones are too rare for us to have him rostered in standard leagues. A trade could give him some decent value, but it's unlikely that he'll be put in a better position than the one he has with the Hawks.

    Jeremy Lin (illness) was left off the injury report ahead of Saturday's game against Boston.

    Lin missed Tuesday's game but we should expect to see him on Saturday. He is at top-200 per game value over his last five games with 13.4 points, 2.4 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.2 triples. He is spot-start worthy but can be left on the waiver wire for the most part in standard leagues.

    Jeremy Lin (illness) was able to go through Thursday's practice session.

    Lin missed Tuesday's game so this is good to see, and it points to him returning on Friday. You'll want to check back just to be safe but Lin should be fine for his usual low-end guard numbers going forward — at least until the trade deadline.

    Jeremy Lin (illness) will not play on Tuesday, and Jaylen Adams will see time at the backup point guard spot.

    It's a nice spot for Adams, especially amidst the trade rumors surrounding Lin. He's only appeared in eight games this year, averaging just 3.4 minutes in the process, and his last game was December 16. He's not a recommended play outside of extremely deep leagues but might hit the radar if/after Lin is traded. This doesn't figure to be a long-term absence for Lin, who has been a low-end guard play in standard leagues of late.

    The Kings are among the teams that have expressed interest in trading for Jeremy Lin, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times.

    Lin figures to be a hot commodity on the trade market but it'd be an odd fit in Sacramento. They already have a capable ball-handler in the second unit in Bogdan Bogdanovic, and Yogi Ferrell and Frank Mason can probably do a good enough job behind him that the Kings shouldn't be spending assets to acquire Lin on an expiring deal. You can never rule anything out with the Kings, but it's a strange set of dots to connect. Expect to hear plenty more about Lin in the coming weeks as every team with eyes on the playoffs should be looking out for more playmakers.
