Jeremy Lin (low back strain) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. Denver.
Advice: With Taurean Prince (left ankle) also sidelined, the Hawks will be shorthanded this weekend. Trae Young will play all the minutes he can handle at PG. DeAndre Bembry, Justin Anderson and Tyler Dorsey should see an uptick in playing time as well.
Lin (lower back strain) has been ruled out for Saturday after he left Wednesday's game against Washington.
Advice: Lin is averaging 11.0 points and 3.1 assists in 23 games. He recently returned from a two-game absence due to a sprained left ankle.
Jeremy Lin (low back strain) will not return on Wednesday.
Advice: That's not good for the Hawks, who are already short on depth with Taurean Prince (ankle) out. The Hawks were expected to run some two-PG lineups to offset the loss of Prince, so now there should be even more minutes going to DeAndre Bembry. Justin Anderson should see decent minutes now. Lin played just four minutes with two points before exiting.
Jeremy Lin scored two points Wednesday, going 1 of 1 from the field, as the Atlanta Hawks lost to the Washington Wizards 131-117. Lin pulled down one rebound and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -1 in his 3:58 on the floor.
Jeremy Lin scored 14 points (5-of-9 FG, 4-of-5 FT) with five rebounds, five assists and two steals in 24 minutes Monday against the Warriors.
Advice: Lin missed the prior two games with an ankle injury, and his return gave Atlanta a solid playmaker in its second unit. So long as the veteran point guard is healthy he'll serve as Trae Young's backup, entrusted with the task of not only scoring himself but setting up the other four players on the floor. Lin has now reached double figures in scoring in four of his last five appearances.
Jeremy Lin scored 14 points Monday, going 5 of 9 from the field, as the Atlanta Hawks fell to the Golden State Warriors 128-111. Lin pulled down five rebounds and dished out five assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -17 in his 24:13 of playing time. He added two steals.

Jeremy Lin (ankle) will be available to play Monday vs. the Warriors.
Advice: It looks like Lin will be back in action following a two-game absence, which could translate to a reduction in minutes for Kevin Hurter and DeAndre Bembry. Lin was playing pretty well prior to going down with the ankle issue, so deep league GMs will want to keep an eye on him tonight.
Jeremy Lin (ankle) practiced Sunday and hopes to play Monday against the Warriors.
Advice: Barring a setback, the Hawks should get their backup point guard back for Monday's game against the defending champs. They'll be happy to get him back after he's missed the last two games. DeAndre Bembry, Kevin Huerter, and Justin Anderson will all go back to their usual roles.
Jeremy Lin (ankle) is probable to play Monday against the Warriors.
Advice: Lin has sat out the past two games for the Hawks, but he was back at practice on Sunday and barring a setback, it sounds like he'll get back out there for Monday's game. He had been trending up prior to going down, so he could be someone to think about streaming on Monday.
