News: Lin got the Patrick Beverley treatment Tuesday and struggled his way to seven points (1-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), two rebounds and six assists in 29 minutes Tuesday. Impact: There's no need to panic after a subpar game from Lin as he was matched up against one of the best defensive point guards in the game in Beverley, as well as going against his former teammates. Lin went scoreless in the first half, but looked better in the second and this will likely be a low-point in what should be a productive season for the former Houston player. If Lin was dropped in your league as a result of this, run, don't walk, to the waiver wire to get him onto your squad.(RotoWire, )

News: Lin will start Tuesday's opener against the Rockets. Impact: The absence of Steve Nash presents an opportunity for Lin to assume the vast majority of the point guard minutes, and he'll now step in as the starter when the regular season begins. Ronnie Price may still be in the conversation to start, though, as Byron Scott may prefer to bring Lin off the bench. Whether he starts or not, Lin's fantasy value is close to as high as it's ever been given the players with which he's competing for playing time.(RotoWire, )

News: Lin will likely assume the starting point guard with Steve Nash ruled out for the season, The L.A. Times reports. Impact: While Lin was expected to play more minutes and be the more fantasy relevant player this season, the news of Nash being done for the year still has an impact in his fantasy value. Previously, coach Byron Scott had annointed Nash the starter, meaning Lin would play off the bench and start on the games Nash rested. Now, with more consistency and only rookie Jordan Clarkson and veteran Ronnie Price behind him, Lin is poised to have his fantasy value rise significantly. He'll likely go higher than where his current ADP sits, so jumping on him n the mid rounds is a solid strategy.(RotoWire, )

News: Lin came off the bench in his return from two sprained ankles, scoring 15 points (3-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 8-10 FT) with four rebounds, five assists, and two steals in 24 minutes Tuesday. Impact: Now healthy, it should only be a matter of time before Lin usurps the starting role from Ronnie Price, who has been the placeholder starter of late. With Steve Nash's troublesome back likely to be a constant concern, Lin's fantasy value looks like it will fairly consistent.(RotoWire, )

News: Lin (ankle) posted on his Twitter account that he will be taking the court for Tuesday's preseason game. Impact: His ankles are feeling better, and he posted a picture of him getting taped up prior to Tuesday's contest. Given the lack of another reliable point guard on the team (Steve Nash doesn't qualify due to health concerns), it will be difficult for Lin not to compile relatively solid counting stats this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Lin (ankle) is unlikely to play Sunday, Lakers reporter Mike Trudell reports. Impact: He took shots Saturday while the rest of the team scrimmaged, but the sprained ankle will probably keep him out of action this weekend. 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Lin sprained his right ankle in individual drills Thursday morning, adding to the sprained left ankle that has kept him out of the previous two preseason games, but still hopes to play Sunday against Utah, reports. Impact: With the Lakers' point guard depth stretched to the point that Ronnie Price started Thursday's game, it's imperative Lin gets himself right before the regular season kicks off. Lin said he'd like to take part in the full-court scrimmage Saturday before playing Sunday, but his health is the most important concern, as he'll likely be installed as the team's starter due to Steve Nash's persistent back and nerve issues. Target Lin in the middle rounds of drafts.(RotoWire, )
