How much longer for Lin return?

Jeremy Lin isn’t playing Sunday and there’s no date set for his return. Moreover, there were hints Sunday that it could be a while before he steps on the court. In a Facebook video Saturday, Lin thanked his fans for all their prayers but gave no indication of when he might return. In fact, the setting of the video, a recovery session in what appeared to be his apartment suggested he’s not close. Here’s what he said... his legs encased in Normatec Pulse attachments which use compressed air to massage athletes’ limbs after workouts or rehab. What up, guys! Thank you for your...

Key stats show how dearly the Nets miss Jeremy Lin

INDIANAPOLIS — Nets fans are going to be thankful whenever Jeremy Lin returns. With each passing game — and each lopsided loss — it’s increasingly clear that Brooklyn’s point guard problems aren’t going away until Lin’s hamstring heals, And that the team may not be competitive until that happens. The Nets have dropped five straight...

For Atkinson, an afternoon of good news, bad news

What do you want first, the good news or bad news? If you answered bad news, then you’re in luck. Unfortunately for Brooklyn Nets fans, there’s still no timetable for Jeremy Lin’s return, per head coach Kenny Atkinson. Lin has been out for eight games since an abrupt hamstring injury sidelined him, and there’s no immediate return in sight. However, he did work out this afternoon, taking jumpers at about 80% speed and running the floor finishing with lay-ups after Nets practice as he looks to quicken his road to recovery. “I think with all of us, we’re super focus on the long...

Power Rankings: It was fun while it lasted

It was fun while it lasted... the Nets power rankings surge, but a four-game losing streak has consequences and Brooklyn, which was as high as No. 18 a week ago, is now back near the bottom, although some pundits have been kind, citing the continuing absence of Jeremy Lin. It will be nice to see what this team can do with Lin and now Caris LeVert. Could get interesting ... again. So here ya go. It should be noted that three of the pundits —Moke Hamilton, Andrew Lynch and Grant Hughes— put their list together Friday John Schuhmann, NBA.Com (26) The Nets certainly miss Jeremy Lin,...

The scary stats that prove how much the Nets need Jeremy Lin

The Nets aren’t saying when injured Jeremy Lin will be able to play again. But it can’t be soon enough. They’re 2-3 with their starting point guard, but have lost six of eight without him. And the advanced statistics tell an even grizzlier story. With Lin on the court, the Nets’ offensive rating is a...

Nets missing Jeremy Lin ... with no date for return

It's been two weeks since Jeremy Lin went down with a hamstring strain vs. the Pistons. The Nets won that game, but have only won two of seven since. In the interim, his main backup, Greivis Vasquez, was released and underwent surgery; one rookie, Isaiah Whitehead, started two games but missed three others to a concussion; a second rookie, Yogi Ferrell, was signed and played well (enough) in five games; Sean Kilpatrick, a swingman who had never played the point before, started four games with mixed results; and Randy Foye, the 33-year-old combo guard, started last night. If you're counting,...

More proof the Nets need Jeremy Lin now more than ever

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Nets were done in again by their Achilles’ heels: rebounding and defending the point guard. The Thunder and Russell Westbrook mercilessly abused them on both fronts on Friday night. The Nets made a change at point guard, but it wasn’t reinstating Jeremy Lin, who is still recovering from a left hamstring...

Nets’ struggling defense now has to deal with Russell Westbrook

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Nets’ point guard woes have been well-documented, and Jeremy Lin will miss Friday’s trip-ending game against the Thunder. Now, after being torn up by the Clippers’ Chris Paul and the Lakers’ D’Angelo Russell, here comes Russell Westbrook. Westbrook is off to an all-time start this year, averaging nearly a triple-double as...

Sean, Kenny ... and Jeremy helping Nets bottom line

The Nets are 27th in attendance and 23rd in percentage of seats sold (still better than last season), and Brett Yormark thinks he sees better days ahead. And it’s about what Sean Marks, Kenny Atkinson ... and Jeremy Lin, of course, are bringing to the Nets. That is, culture. “Fans seem to be very accepting, and not only accepting but are encouraged by the new culture, the grit with which the team plays and the hustle. And it’s leading to increased sales,’’ Yormark, the CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment, the Nets’ parent company told Brian Lewis on Wednesday in Los...

For the Nets under Kenny Atkinson, the difference is quite clear

Ben Dowsett writes about the work Kenny Atkinson is doing with the Nets, noting how the Nets rookie coach has borrowed from his mentors in places like Houston, New York and Atlanta. Despite the team’s recent losses to the Knicks, Clippers and Lakers (all without Jeremy Lin), Dowsett thinks that “through roughly an eighth of the season, Atkinson has this group playing, well, real basketball.” He isn’t, of course, the first to note how Atkinson has taken a group of supposedly untalented players and turned them into a competitive TEAM. But Dowsett offers and encyclopedic set of...

To live and die in L.A. - the frustrations of late nights and the hope for the future

Never forget, Nets fans: It’s ALL about development. Two tough nights in L.A. Two losses, one a blowout, one failed comeback. Frustrating no doubt and the uncertainty of Jeremy Lin’s return only adds to it. But despite the Nets’ surprising start, the goal has never been a set number of wins, a trip to the playoffs. It’s been about development: of young players, of Brook Lopez’s range, of Bojan Bogdanovic’s aggressiveness. And whenever that’s the goal, you have to know that there will be up’s and down’s, fits and starts. And right now, despite the L.A. losses (the Nets...

At the 5, an efficient duo helps the Nets

If there’s any position where the Nets new thinking —performance, sports science, analytics, development— has produced big dividends, it’s the 5, the center position. Brook Lopez and Justin Hamilton are an efficient duo, producing big numbers while balancing production with rest. Here’s some data points that Greg Logan and Brian Lewis highlight Friday, as the Nets set off for a four-game west coast road trip in Phoenix, Los Angeles and Oklahoma City. —Resting Lopez had produced results, particularly since Jeremy Lin went down. According to Elias Sports Bureau, Lopez ranks...
