Geez, fate leaning to Lin/Clarkson? - Lakers: PG Ronnie Price injured right knee in 1st Q of preseason finale vs. Kings - via @SportsCenter

Jinno Rufino

3 missed FT's cost Lakers their final pre-season game. Nice work though by Lin, Davis, Randle, Clarkson, and yes even Sacre

Jason Jones

Lin makes 1 of 2 FTs, Kings down 92-91, 10.2 seconds to play.

Gary Lee

At the end of 3, Lakers lead 76-64. Four Lakers in double figures led by Jeremy Lin’s 13. Check out the highlights. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Ryan Ward

Solid night from Jeremy Lin. 13 points, 7 assists and a steal in 26 mins thus far. #Lakers

Jason Jones

Jeremy Lin, Wesley Johnson and Laker backups having their way this quarter against the Kings.

Gary Lee

LINSANITY: LAS VEGAS.

Eric Pincus

The notion of Lin coming off the bench was tied to Nash as part time starter - now? Different situation - likely will be starting soon

Mike Trudell

Spending time w/my newborns; back 4 opener. Lin/Randle/Davis

Gary Lee

Antawn Jamison and James Worthy have as much chemistry as Jeremy Lin and Ed Davis, @TWCSportsNet.

Jason Jones

Ronnie Price (sore right knee) is done for the night for the Lakers. More Linsanity for us all.

Gary Lee

Lakers are attacking the paint tonight. Nice finishes by Jeremy Lin and Julius Randle. 32-27, Lakers.

Mark Medina

Mitch Kupchak said he is "okay" with pg depth w/ Lin, Price & Clarkson. Mitch: "Will we look to get another backcourt player? I don't know."

Mike Bresnahan

Lakers not looking to add another PG at this time. They like Lin, are pleased with Ronnie Price. And of course, there's the rookie, Clarkson

Arash Markazi

Jeremy Lin said his time in Houston taught him nothing is guaranteed. He wants to start but said he has no idea if he will with Nash out.

Arash Markazi

Lin: "One thing I’ve learned is nothing is guaranteed in this league, just because he’s out that doesn’t mean I’ll be playing a lot."

Arash Markazi

Ronnie Price will start for the Lakers tonight with Jeremy Lin coming off the bench. Byron Scott hasn't decided on opening night lineup yet.

Kurt Helin

Byron Scott says Lakers may need to trade for point guard. For now, Ronnie Price starts, Jeremy Lin off bench. dlvr.it/7JfYCz

Mark Medina

Byron Scott also said Ronnie Price will start tonight over Jeremy Lin. But that situation is fluid bit.ly/1rsTyvM

Alex Kennedy

With Steve Nash out for the season, this is Jeremy Lin's time to shine, writes @Yannis Koutroupis: basketballinsiders.com/rumors-jeremy-…

Mark Medina

Lin: "What I went through in Houston has prepared me for this year." As mentioned before, Scott will pick starting PG once season starts

Mark Medina

Jeremy Lin expressed sympathy about Nash's injury and sounded respectful to Scott about not starting.

Mike Bresnahan

To clarify, Lin's not complaining about not starting. But he said his experience in Houston is preparing him for a backseat if necessary.

Mike Bresnahan

Ronnie Price starts for Lakers tonight at PG. Lin, who will come off bench: "One thing I've leaned...nothing's guaranteed in this league."

Mark Medina

Byron says he's starting price because he has played well through preseason and Lin is just coming off injury. But this is not set in stone

Chris Palmer

Jeremy Lin quietly has a Top 15 NBA handle.

Eric Pincus

I'm learning there's a real history with Lin, Rockets, fans, blogs, message boards, etc. - all new to me - very lively crowd on Twitter

Eric Pincus

Eventually Nick Young will return - I'd expect Scott to play with the rotation then - many reasons why Lin should start- right now, I get it

Eric Pincus

Otherwise Lakers have no offense - nada - if Kobe or Lin isn't on the floor - worked vs. Blazers 2nd/3rd unit w/Price w/o Kobe but come on

Eric Pincus

I think Lin fans need to look at Kobe as starting pg - backed by Lin - best way to look at it - Kobe played de facto pg most of career

Tas Melas

Those picking up Jeremy Lin in fantasy right now disgust me. Let's have a moment of silence for Steve Nash, please.

Chris Mannix

Nash's injury opens up most of the point guard minutes for newcomer Jeremy Lin. Ronnie Price seems likely to assume the backup role.

Linsanity 2: Electric Boogaloo RT @zooread: @Amin Elhassan (opens the door to Linsanity)

Eric Pincus

The Jeremy Lin/Omer Asik contracts were not poison pill - they were quirks of Early Bird/Gilbert Arenas provision @BBallInsiders

Eric Pincus

For time being, I get Lin off bench - even if he may be Lakers' 2nd best player - greater concern who closes games latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Eric Pincus

My argument here is that 1st unit can survive w/Kobe as primary scorer - but no Young, 2nd unit dead w/o Lin latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Eric Pincus

There are some SERIOUSLY passionate Lin fans who are very angry that Jeremy Lin is not starting - didn't quite grasp the scope til now

Eric Pincus

Magic Johnson suggests Lakers point guard Jeremy Lin should start - I suggest it could happen, eventually but not yet latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Eric Pincus

Is Ronnie Price better than Lin? No. Does Byron Scott think that? No. But weak roster currently - Lin is desperately needed on 2nd unit

Eric Pincus

I just expect Byron Scott to delay that for now - Lin starting

Eric Pincus

Ultimately, I don't expect Nash to be a major part of Lakers this year - and Young will return to be scorer for 2nd unit - so Lin may start

Eric Pincus

So if Steve Nash is starting, then Lin getting time now w/ 2nd unit is about building that unit

Eric Pincus

How long that will last is TBD - I would imagine Nick Young returning to floor makes it easier to start Jeremy Lin

Eric Pincus

Right now the Lakers can get scoring in their top unit with Kobe and cast - they have almost nothing in 2nd unit - which is why Lin there
