Jeremy Lin

  • Jeremy Lin - G - Atlanta 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 - G - Atlanta Hawks

    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 - G - Atlanta Hawks

    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.

  • Jeremy Lin - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Jeremy Lin has been downgraded to doubtful for Tuesday's game, but it's because of an illness and not his previous right bicep contusion.

    The flu bug has been hitting a number of players around the league as it always does. With Lin likely out tonight we might see DeAndre' Bembry take on some backup point guard work, while others like Tyler Dorsey and Jaylen Adams could see spot minutes at the position as well.

    Jeremy Lin (right bicep contusion) is probable ahead of Tuesday's game.

    Lin was able to play through the injury on Sunday and logged 26 minutes, so fantasy owners shouldn't hesitate to deploy him if they normally would.

  • Jeremy Lin - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Jeremy Lin was able to play through a right bicep contusion on Sunday, logging 26 minutes and scoring seven points with five assists and a steal.

    Lin didn't appear to change his approach because of the injury, getting up 10 shots in his run today. The problem is that he only hit two of them. We'll see how his minutes are affected when Taurean Prince gets back to full health but for now he's still safe to use for any guard-needy owners.

  • Jeremy Lin - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Jeremy Lin (bicep) will suit up on Sunday vs. the Bucks.

    Lin will play in this game but so will Taurean Prince and although he's only playing 12 minutes tonight Lin might see his minutes drop along with DeAndre' Bembry. When Prince's minutes ramp up Lin will definitely see his drop a little so just beware if you own him.

    Jeremy Lin (bicep) is probable to play on Sunday.

    It's a right bicep contusion, specifically. Lin's been playing rather well of late and we're not too worried about this issue costing him any games, though with his injury history you can never be too careful. His playing time might be coming down with Taurean Prince and Kent Bazemore nearing returns but the Hawks may also keep Lin out there to bump his trade value. He's a solid back-end player in standard leagues as long as he's up around 24 mpg, so keep an eye out as the Hawks get healthy.

    The Blazers, Pelicans and 76ers are inquiring about Jeremy Lin according to a report from the Sporting News.

    All three teams are reportedly willing to move their upcoming first round pick for some depth. With the Hawks going nowhere this season, they'd surely be happy to get a first for Lin, who is a free agent after this season anyway. Nothing is imminent but there is a good chance Lin is on the move come trade deadline.

  • Jeremy Lin - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Jeremy Lin started in Tuesday's game against the Raptors due to multiple injuries for the Hawks, scoring 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting with four rebounds and nine assists over 35 minutes.

    Lin will be productive if given the minutes but that has been the issue with him lately, averaging just 21.3 mpg over the last eight games including this big one. If he plays north of 22-24 mpg he's on the late-round radar and he has a short-term window to do that but we're not betting a ton on it.

  • Jeremy Lin - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Jeremy Lin will move into the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Raptors.

    Lin will slot in for Kevin Huerter (mid back pain) to make his first start of the season. Behind him in the wing rotation are DeAndre' Bembry, Tyler Dorsey, Daniel Hamilton and Justin Anderson. Good luck with anyone there besides Bembry, while Lin is a decent option for short-term value.
