Lakers guard Jeremy Lin frustrated with diminished role


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/26/2015) After not playing in Friday's loss to the Spurs, Lakers guard Jeremy Lin was admittedly frustrated with coach Byron Scott's decision not to play him, reports the Los Angeles Daily News.

"I'm human. I got emotions," Lin said. "I show up and do my best to play and work hard. But it definitely hurts. It's discouraging sometimes and disappointing. All of those emotions, of course. I don't think anybody would feel great after a DNP, no matter who you are."

Lin had a discussion with Scott to talk about his changing role, which Lin said was positive and productive. However, Scott said he will let the game dictate which players he will use.

"I watch and see how the game is going," Scott said. "I have a good idea of what I'm going to do. But I let the game dictate that."

Lin did play 28 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Rockets and scored 14 points with six assists. As Lin's role changes on a nightly basis, he said it can't let him change how he approaches the game.

"The only thing that has been consistent is the amount of inconsistency I've had in my life," Lin said. "I've gone from getting cut in the D-League to starting to playing heavy minutes to all these different roles every week. I have to keep staying aggressive when I get out there."

Lin is averaging 10.5 points and 4.5 assists this season.


Lakers' Kobe will play Wednesday; Price is game-time decision


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Bryant missed the last two games to rest, but it appears his body is feeling well.

"Kobe's good, he said he's ready to go," Lakers coach Byron Scott said. Scott added it will take another 10 to 15 games for Bryant to be fully healthy, which includes sitting out some of those games to rest, reports the Los Angeles Daily News.

Meanwhile, guard Ronnie Price is dealing with an elbow injury and will be a game-time decision at New Orleans. Price has missed the last two games because of the elbow injury. Jeremy Lin will start if Price is out.

The Lakers are 7 1/2-point underdogs.

Kobe Bryant wants Jeremy Lin, teammates to play 'relentlessly'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2014) Lakers shooting guard Kobe Bryant said after Tuesday's loss that Jeremy Lin and his Laker teammates need to learn to play "relentlessly," the Los Angeles Times reports.

"Lin was being more aggressive and taking shots. I think the biggest thing for him to learn is to play relentlessly," said Bryant.  "The most important thing [for my teammates] is that they understand the relentlessness they have to play with. I'll go out there and I'll leave on the floor everything, and compete and not be fearful of criticism or fearful of not playing well or missing shots.  That's the same way I want the guys to play, Jeremy in particular, because he's a really good player.  He's just getting used to playing with that kind of effort and attitude."

Bryant scored 39 points in Tuesday's loss but shot just 37.8 percent from the field. He said the loss "was upsetting, but we have to stay determined."

Fantasy Basketball Blog: Jeremy Lin's new role


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) At the Fantasy Basketball Today blog, we took a look at the Fantasy implications of Steve Nash's injury, and how his absence will impact Jeremy Lin now that he is the de facto lead point guard for the Lakers. Here's some of what I had to say about Lin:

"Lin has appeared in four preseason games in Byron Scott's offense, and has looked to have a solid command. He is averaging 8.8 assists per-36 minutes in his preseason action, and gives this team an element of off-the-dribble creativity that might be sorely lacking if Kobe's athleticism is missing. Lin is going 74th on average in CBSSports.com leagues, and that number should only creep up now that there are no real roadblocks to him getting 30-plus minutes per game."

Lin should be considered a top-30 guard in all Fantasy formats at this point, and he could be good for 15 points and 6 assists per game this season.

Scott could opt to start PG Jeremy Lin over Steve Nash


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) Byron Scott is considering starting Jeremy Lin at point guard for the Lakers this season rather than aging and injury plagued Steve Nash.

The 40-year-old Nash played in the preseason opener before sitting out the second game and pulling himself out of the third game because of injury. He is in the final season of a three-year contract worth $28 million.

"I have no doubt in my mind that if I went to Steve and said tomorrow, 'You know what, I'm going to start Jeremy and the games you're available, we're going to bring you off bench,' he's such a professional that I don't think it would be a problem whatsoever," Scott told the Los Angeles Times.

Nash was limited to just 15 games last season due to a back injury.

That means rookie Julius Randle and newly acquired guard Jeremy Lin will come off the bench, and he is leaning toward bring Nick Young off the bench as well.
