Jeremy Lin G LAL 6 days ago

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 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.

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.

Lin (knee) is a late scratch ahead of tip-off for Wednesday's game and will not play due to soreness in his right knee, Mike Bresnahan of the L.A Times reports.

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) posted 10 points, three rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 28 minutes of action Wednesday against the Pelicans.

Lin had missed the last two games with an illness, but he appears set to play moving forward. He's averaging 14.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, 5.4 assists, and 1.6 steals in March, and is worth owning in standard leagues as a starter.

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. Prior to the brief run of DNPs, Lin was ripping it up, averaging 21.3 points (on 50 percent shooting), 5.5 assists, 4.3 rebounds, 1.8 three-pointers, and 0.8 steals in 31 minutes.
