Player News
July 1, 2016
Lin agreed to terms with the Nets on a three-year, $36 million contract Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.Lin is believed to be headed back to New York, but now as a Brooklyn Net. The 27-year-old should get a chance to start for Brooklyn, assuming that the Nets don’t add a better player to their roster, which seems unlikely at this point. The point guard averaged 11.7 points, 3.0 assists, and 3.2 rebounds with 13.8 minutes per game for Charlotte’s 2015-16 season. Overall, this deal looks like an affordable one for Brooklyn, and especially a solid fit for Lin, as he’ll be reunited with coach Kenny Atkinson, a former assistant with the Knicks during the Linsanity years.
June 7, 2016
Lin declined his $2.2 million player option for the 2016-17 season, making him an unrestricted free agent, Chris Haynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.While Lin has expressed interest to remain with the Hornets, he vastly outperformed his contract in his first year with the team and should be due for a sizable raise on the open market. The 27-year-old will likely seek a longer-term deal as the salary cap expands, and he figures to attract several suitors in search of a combo guard off the bench.
April 28, 2016
Lin tallied 11 points (4-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-6 FT), seven assists, and six rebounds across 35 minutes in Wednesday’s 90-88 Game 5 win over the Heat.Though the Hornets welcomed back Nicolas Batum (ankle) from a two-game absence, Lin still saw his most court time of the series, as coach Steve Clifford rode the combo guard heavily while he provided ample contributions across the stat sheet. Lin has been a solid energy guy off the bench all season for the Hornets, but because his early-game performance often dictates how many minutes he ends up receiving on any given night, he’s liable for some volatile production from time to time. Still, he’s been a solid complementary player for the Hornets throughout the series, averaging 14 points (on 44.7% shooting from the field), 3.4 assists, 2.8 rebounds, and 0.6 three-pointers across 29.2 minutes.
April 23, 2016
Lin scored 18 points (7-16 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding four rebounds, four assists and a steal in 26 minutes off the bench during a Game 3 win over the Heat on Saturday.The victory was the franchise’s first in the postseason in 14 years, and snapped a 12-game losing streak. Lin, who’s now averaging 12.7 points, 2.7 boards and 2.3 assists through three games, may need to continue providing a big offensive spark off the bench for the Hornets if they’re going to even the series at 2-2 back home on Monday.
April 23, 2016
Lin is shifting to the bench for Saturday’s Game 3 against Miami.The Hornets will go with a fairly drastic lineup change Saturday, inserting Al Jefferson and Frank Kaminsky in the frontcourt alongside Marvin Williams. Courtney Lee will remain in the lineup at shooting guard, while Kemba Walker starts at his usual point guard spot.
Injuries
  • Elbow
Date: Apr 6, 2016
Status: OUT
Lin is listed as probable for Wednesday’s game against the Knicks due to bursitis in his right elbow.The issue hasn’t cost Lin any time, and he’s on track to suit up for the second half of a back-to-back set, one night after playing 40 minutes and scoring 21 points in a loss to the Raptors. Assuming he does play, Lin would likely be battling discomfort in his shooting elbow, so that could affect his value as a DFS commodity.
  • Back
Date: Apr 1, 2016
Status: OUT
Lin (back) continues to be listed as questionable for Friday’s game against the 76ers.Lin is dealing with lingering back soreness, which already costed him Tuesday’s outing versus the 76ers. He’s in danger of missing a second straight game Friday, although we’ll have to wait till closer to tip off before hearing an official word on his availability. If he’s unable to play, Jorge Gutierrez and Jeremy Lamb could pick up some extra minutes in the backcourt behind Kemba Walker.
  • Back
Date: Mar 31, 2016
Status: OUT
Lin (back) went through practice Thursday, but won’t know until Friday whether or not he’ll be able to play against the 76ers, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.Lin continues to deal with the same soreness in his back that kept him out of Tuesday’s matchup with the Sixers. His participation in practice is a good sign, but the team will wait to see how the back reacts Friday morning before making an official call.

  • Back
Date: Mar 29, 2016
Status: OUT
Lin is doubtful for Tuesday night with soreness in his lower back, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.Look for an official decision to come closer to tip, although it doesn’t seem likely Lin will be on the court come tip. The injury doesn’t appear to be too severe as he isn’t expected to miss extended time. If he is held out on Tuesday, look for Jorge Gutierrez to inherit extra minutes.
  • Ankle
Date: Jan 30, 2016
Status: OUT
Lin (ankle) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Lakers.Lin’s ankle sprain kept him on the sidelines for Friday’s loss to Portland, but he has been upgraded to questionable heading into Sunday’s matchup with the Lakers. Brian Roberts saw most of Lin’s minutes off the bench Friday and that could be the case yet again if Lin is sidelined Sunday.
  • Ankle
Date: Jan 28, 2016
Status: OUT
Lin (ankle) will not play Friday versus the Trail Blazers.Lin was forced to leave Wednesday’s game against the Jazz after 17 minutes of action due to a sprained ankle. He left the game with four points, two rebounds, one assist, and one steal. Given that he is already confirmed out for Friday’s contest, the injury may take a little time to heal. For now consider him day-to-day following Friday’s matchup.

Status: OUT
Lin was removed from Wednesday’s game against the Jazz with a right ankle sprain, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.Lin scored four points with two rebounds and one assist in 17 minutes before he was forced to leave. Brian Roberts is the next guard up in the rotation in Lin’s absence, and Aaron Harrison could get some rare run if Lin is forced to miss substantial time. The severity of the sprain is unknown thus far, so we’ll have to wait for further evaluation before we can pinpoint a return date with any certainty.

Lin is questionable for Saturday’s game against the Bucks due to a sprained right ankle.It is unclear when exactly Lin sprained his ankle in Friday’s game versus the Pelicans, but he appears to be a true game-time decision for Saturday’s tilt with the Bucks. If he cannot go his next chance to play will be Monday versus the Jazz. Expect an update prior to tip-off.
  • Ankle
Date: Jan 10, 2016
Status: OUT
Lin is listed as questionable for Sunday’s matchup with the Nuggets due to a sprained right ankle.Lin is fresh off a 26-point, four-assist showing on Saturday, so this injury is somewhat of a surprise. Lin is currently listed as questionable, so we’ll have to wait till closer to game time to hear an official update on his status. If he’s able to play, he could see another start, as Nicolas Batum is also questionable with a toe injury that’s forced him to miss the last four games.
  • Ankle
Date: Jan 10, 2016
Status: OUT
Lin scored 26 points (9-16 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT) while adding four rebounds, four assists and a steal in 41 minutes during Saturday’s loss to the Clippers.Nic Batum’s toe injury has allowed Lin to start the last four games, and he’s responded by averaging 17.3 points, 3.3 boards, 3.3 assists and 1.5 threes. Batum could return to action as soon as Sunday against the Nuggets, however, and the Hornets are 0-4 with Lin in the starting lineup, so expect him to be back on the bench soon enough.
  • Ankle
Date: Jan 4, 2016
Status: OUT
Lin (ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Monday’s game against the Warriors.Lin missed a pair of games last week with a sprained ankle, but he returned Saturday against Oklahoma City, finishing with 15 points and four assists in 34 minutes. Still dealing with residual soreness, Lin entered the game questionable, but he’s been upgraded to probable after shootaround and appears on track to start alongside Kemba Walker with Nic Batum (toe) out.
  • Ankle
Date: Jan 3, 2016
Status: OUT
Lin is listed as questionable for Monday’s game against the Warriors due to lower back tightness.Lin played 34 minutes in the Hornets’ last game Saturday after missing the previous two contests with the sprained right ankle, but it appears he is still dealing with some soreness. The Hornets will likely make a call on Lin’s status at some point close to tip-off.
  • Ankle
Date: Jan 2, 2016
Status: OUT
Lin (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Saturday’s game against the Thunder, but he will start at the two if he plays.It sounds like Lin will just need to make it through pregame warmups and then he will be cleared to get the start. Nicolas Batum is out with a toe injury, so Lin could see around 30 minutes if he gets the nod.
  • Ankle
Date: Jan 1, 2016
Status: OUT
Lin (ankle) has been ruled out of Friday’s game against the Raptors.Lin will be missing his second straight game Friday as he deals with a right ankle sprain.

Lin (ankle) is questionable for Friday’s game against the Raptors.Lin was held out of Wednesday’s contest against the Clippers due to the right ankle sprain, but the injury doesn’t appear to be anything serious and he could be back as early as Friday.

Lin, who is dealing with a right ankle sprain, won’t play Wednesday against the Clippers, Stephanie Ready of Fox Sports Southeast reports.Lin’s ankle injury forced him to miss practice Tuesday and sidelined him for Wednesday’s morning shootaround, but for the moment, the ailment isn’t considered a serious one. With the Hornets’ top bench option sitting out, look for Jeremy Lamb, P.J. Hairston, and Brian Roberts to assume the bulk of Lin’s minutes. The next chance for Lin to return to the court will come Friday against the Raptors.

Lin (ankle) is nursing a right ankle sprain and is listed as questionable for Wednesday’s contest against the Clippers.Lin’s injury forced him to miss Tuesday’s practice, but the Hornets will likely see how he looks during Wednesday’s morning shootaround before making a call on his status for the game. Nicolas Batum (toe) is also listed as questionable Wednesday, so if either or both players are forced to sit out, the likes of Jeremy Lamb, P.J. Hairston, and Brian Roberts could see an uptick in playing time.

Lin (ankle) is considered questionable for Wednesday’s game against the Warriors.Lin emerged from Sunday’s win over the Bucks with a sprained ankle, and the Hornets will wait until shootaround Wednesday to get a look at the injury before making a call on his status. If Lin, who’s averaging 10.3 points and 2.9 assists this month, is ultimately held out, the Hornets would likely turn to little-used Brian Roberts for minutes off the bench. Jeremy Lamb could also see increased time, as Lin has spent considerable minutes at shooting guard this season.

Lin is dealing with an illness and will not play in Saturday’s preseason game, the Charlotte Observer’s Rick Bonnell reports.It’s not clear how serious the illness is, but for now it seems likely that he will be able to get right in time for the start of the regular season.
  • Knee
Date: Apr 12, 2015
Status: OUT
Lin (knee) will participate in pre-game warmups, but he still appears doubtful to play Sunday Mark Medina of the L.A. Daily News reports.With the Lakers playing for a draft pick at this point, there’s little reason for Lin to play if he’s at all hurt. Expect him to sit the rest of the regular season in order to avoid any type of long term injury.
  • Knee

Status: OUT
Lin (knee) will miss the final three games of the season, Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times reports.A recent MRI revealed an abnormality in the left meniscus that Lin tore back in 2012. He may only need rest to address the issue, but even if that’s the case, the Lakers have no incentive to bring him back for another game or two. Jabari Brown and Wes Johnson should get all the minutes they can handle over the final three games, with Dwight Buycks also a key part of the rotation. The knee issue couldn’t have cropped up at a worse time for Lin, who is set to become a free agent this summer.

Lin (knee) will have his left knee examined Thursday, Mike Bresnahan of the LA Times reports.Lin was held out of Wednesday’s game with soreness in the knee – the same one on which he had surgery in 2012 to repair a torn meniscus. At this point, the MRI should be considered precautionary, but his status for the rest of the season may be dependent upon the result. If he’s held out again Friday against Minnesota, rookie Jabari Brown will likely make another start.

Jabari Brown will replace Lin at shooting guard.
  • Knee

Status: OUT
Lin is still starting in the backcourt for the Lakers, but he played just 24 minutes Tuesday after playing just 17 minutes Sunday.If Lin isn’t going to play at least 28 minutes per game, it’s highly unlikely that he’ll collect enough stats to be worth using in standard leagues the rest of the way. Also, with his minutes unclear, it’d be a poor investment to spend money on Lin in daily games.

Lin (illness) may return to action Wednesday against the Hornets, the LA Daily News reports.An upper respiratory infection has forced two consecutive absences, but coach Byron Scott is of the belief that Lin will be able to gut it out Wednesday.

He and Carlos Boozer will likely continue to come off the bench for the foreseeable future, with Ronnie Price starting at point guard in Lin’s place.

Lin had a sharp pain in his leg that caused him to stop his post-game interviews Sunday, the Los Angeles Times reports.Lin hasn’t performed well enough off the bench to warrant a move back to the starting lineup, scoring just three points with three rebounds and four assists Sunday.

Fortunately, Price struggled just as much and it’s unlikely the journeyman is really the man coach Byron Scott wants running his team. This benching may be just a temporary move and as such, Lin should be held to see what the next week brings.

However, given the fact that Steve Nash (back) is already ailing, Lin should be a strong play to start the season, assuming he’s healthy by then.
  • Ankle
Date: Oct 15, 2014
Status: OUT
Lin (ankle) is in line to become the Lakers’ starting point guard, after Steve Nash’s nerve irritation flared up recently, InsideSoCal.com reports.Coach Byron Scott floated the possibility that Nash will come off the bench when and if he is healthy, saying “I have no doubt in my mind if I went to Steve tomorrow and said ‘I’m going to start Jeremy and the games you’re available we’re going to bring you off the bench,’ he’s such a professional that I don’t think it will be a problem whatsoever. He just wants to help the team win as much as he can. That’s not a concern of mine. But we haven’t talked about it.” If Scott makes the change, Lin’s fantasy value will rise and he becomes a very intriguing mid-late round prospect.

Lin (ankle) will not play in Sunday’s exhibition game.Lin sustained a sprained ankle during Saturday’s practice and was seen walking around very gingerly prior to Sunday’s contest. He’ll be held out, but coach Byron Scott said Lin feels much better Sunday than he did Saturday, which is certainly a positive indication. Consider Lin day-to-day and questionable to play Thursday against Utah.

Lin sprained his left ankle at the end of Saturday’s practice.The 26-year-old will be re-evaluated Sunday morning, but it seems likely the team will take precaution and hold him out of its exhibition matchup against Golden State. Lin has gone 4-for-10 from the field, with seven rebounds and 14 assists in 49 minutes so far in the preseason. He figures to open the regular season as the top option behind Steve Nash.
