Lin suffered a patellar tendon rupture in Wednesday's season opener against the Pacers and will miss the rest of the season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lin played 25 minutes and scored 18 points Wednesday night before going down with the injury. It's a tough blow for the Nets, who had high expectations for their starting backcourt of Lin and newcomer D'Angelo Russell. The Nets will have a few options with Lin out, with Allen Crabbe most likely to get the start at shooting guard in his absence, but Sean Kilpatrick and Spencer Dinwiddie could also see extended minutes in Lin's absence due to their ball-handling capabilities.

Lin had to leave Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Pacers with a right knee injury and he'll undergo further evaluation in New York on Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lin attacked the basket late in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's contest and was knocked to the floor by a pair of Pacer defenders. He was clearly in a ton of pain while holding his knee and eventually limped off the court to the locker room. The Nets fear that Lin's knee injury could be substantial, but he's expected to undergo additional tests Thursday, which should give us a better indication on how severe it actually is.

Lin finished with 16 points (5-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four assists, three rebounds and five turnovers across 24 minutes during Thursday's 107-88 win over the Heat.

EDGE Analysis

Lin bounced back after a subpar first preseason game Tuesday, though struggled to hang onto the ball, committing five turnovers in just 24 minutes. Regardless, he'll likely begin the year starting at shooting guard and will hope to remain healthy this year after playing just 36 contest last season while dealing with a hamstring injury. Lin projects to have value in seemingly every fantasy format after posting 14.5 points, 5.1 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.2 steals last year.

Lin tallied eight points (2-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, three rebounds and one blocked shot across 18 minutes in Tuesday's 115-107 win over the Knicks.

EDGE Analysis

Lin was ice-cold in Tuesday's matchup, shooting only 22.2 percent from the floor. The early trend sets Lin up as the starter opposite D'Angelo Russell in the backcourt, with both players shifting between the 1 and two slots, While Lin will still have some fantasy value, Russell seems poised to be the Nets' go-to offensive weapon, with Lin potentially sharing more time with Allen Crabbe off the bench. It's still too early to see how the former Harvard standout will be utilized, but he only warrants late-round consideration in most fantasy formats.

Lin will be rested for Wednesday's game against the Bulls, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite Lin putting up some excellent performances over the last month of the season, he will be rested for the team's season finale along with fellow veterans Trevor Booker and Brook Lopez. In his absence, look for Isaiah Whitehead and Spencer Dinwiddie to split the time at point guard, with the playing time likely being fairly even regardless of who starts.

Lin scored 26 points (4-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 16-17 FT) with 12 rebounds, four assists and one block across 34 minutes in Monday's 114-105 loss to the Celtics.

EDGE Analysis

Lin recorded season-highs in free throws made and rebounds to secure his third double-double of the year and his first in almost three-and-a-half months. The Harvard product led the Nets in both scoring and rebounds, but his efforts weren't enough to fight back a Celtics team that's still fighting for playoff positioning. Lin will look to keep up his high level of play when the Nets close out their season Wednesday against the Bulls.

Lin scored 32 points (11-20 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 5-6 FT) and added five rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 31 minutes during Thursday's 115-107 loss to the Magic.

EDGE Analysis

Lin missed almost two months with a hamstring injury, and it took him a few games to return to form after returning. Since early March, however, he has been a strong fantasy producer, and his numbers have improved since he missed a game with an ankle injury on March 21. He's providing value in points, rebounds, assists, steals, and threes, though his field goal percentage remains very low.

Lin scored 16 points (6-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding seven assists, five rebounds and two steals in 23 minutes during Tuesday's 141-118 rout of the 76ers.

EDGE Analysis

He was well on pace for his first triple-double in over three years, but with the Nets coasting to an easy victory, Lin and the rest of the starters hit the showers early. The 28-year-old has now scored in double digits in seven of the last eight games, averaging 13.8 points, 6.0 assists, 4.3 boards, 1.4 steals and 1.3 three-pointers over that stretch.

Lin finished with 15 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six assists and six rebounds across 31 minutes during Sunday's 91-82 victory over the Hawks.

EDGE Analysis

Lin will likely continue seeing around 30 minutes per game from here on out. He averages a solid 13.6 points and 5.1 assists per game on the season, making him a potential pick up in a variety of fantasy formats if he's available. Though he didn't rack up any steals Sunday, he had been averaging 2.3 over the past four games, demonstrating his defensive potential.

Lin recorded 19 points (7-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight assists, four rebounds, two steals, and one block in 28 minutes during Sunday's 107-92 win over the Hawks.

EDGE Analysis

Lin continues to reward those who have been patient enough to hold onto him during an injury-plagued campaign, as he is having a solid month of March. He has appeared in as many games this month (14) as he did during the rest of 2016-17 combined, and Lin seems like a safe bet to keep seeing decent minutes during the final nine outings as long as he can stay healthy.
