Jeremy Lin. Pasos de salida y de entrada... vine.co/v/MvHLUYYvEmu

Mark Medina

I presume Lakers' off day hurts Lin's chances of playing tomorrow. Byron wanted Lin to scrimmage + cut + change direction to test ankle

Eric Pincus

Add in Nick Young, Jeremy Lin - that's a lot of missing scoring - maybe some Nash/Henry/Kelly - even some Clarkson, different team

David Locke

Last 10 quarters Lakers have been outscored by 90 points. Missing Steve Nash, Jeremy Lin, Nick Young, Ryan Kelly and Magic Johnson & crew

Eric Pincus

Jeremy Lin is listed as DND [did not dress] - Sprained ankles [plural]

Bill Oram

Wayne Ellington has to play point guard because Steve Nash, Jeremy Lin and Keith Appling are hurt and Magic Johnson is retired.

Mike Trudell

One issue is that LAL can't count on Nash, as Scott said pregame, but they do expect Lin to return soon from his ankle sprain.

Mike Trudell

Another rough quarter for LAL has Utah up 32-20 after 12 min. at Staples. No Lin or Nash isn't helping LAL (35% FG's) get good looks.

Mike Trudell

Ronnie Price has been very solid, especially on D, but doesn't create shots for others like Jeremy Lin (ankle) will.

Arash Markazi

Steve Nash, Jeremy Lin, Nick Young, Ryan Kelly, Jordan Clarkson, Xavier Henry and Jeremy Tyler are all out for the Lakers tonight.

Mark Medina

Lin's availability Tues vs. Phoenix hinges on if he can play full contact on Monday & plant feet, cut, change direction without any issues

Mark Medina

Lakers' Jeremy Lin out vs. Utah bit.ly/1uqYy5X

Mike Trudell

All six Lakers that have been out with injuries — Nash, Lin, Young, Kelly, Clarkson and Henry — will miss tonight’s game, as expected.

Aaron Falk

Nash, Lin, and Kelly won't play tonight. Lakers missing six guys in total.

Gary Lee

The Ronnie Price Show continues. RT @SerenaWinters: As expected, Jeremy Lin will NOT play tonight.

Ryan Ward

Jeremy Lin is OUT tonight, according to @SerenaWinters #Lakers

David Locke

No Jeremy Lin for the Lakers tonight

Mark Medina

Jeremy Lin is out tonight

Mark Medina

Scott said Jeremy Lin is a game-time decision for tonight

Mark Medina

My mistake. Here's the video of Jeremy Lin shooting tout.com/m/qfisli?ref=t…

Mike Trudell

Jeremy Lin's shooting jumpers while the team scrimmages - he's unlikely to play Sunday (sprained ankle), lo... vine.co/v/ObAVndbQili

Mark Medina

Jeremy Lin not in the full court scrimmage right now. He's off to a sore basket shooting

Mike Trudell

Kelly looks like the only possibility for Sunday, with Clarkson and Lin looking at Tuesday and Nash TBD. Henry, Young out for preseason.

Mark Medina

Nash definitively out for tomorrow. Kelly and Lin could play tomorrow but depends on their scrimmage later today

Mark Medina

Lakers' Jeremy Lin tweaks right ankle, still hopes to play Sunday vs. Utah bit.ly/1oeU5GW

Eric Pincus

Byron Scott doesn't expect Lin either for Sunday - as I had guessed, looks like it's Ryan Kelly first back out of injured many

Mike Trudell

Some of those change immediately when Lin and Kelly get back, and when Kobe at times can space on one side of the floor if need be.

Mike Trudell

2/2: no PG penetration (Lin, Nash, Clarkson out); playing PF’s in Boozer/Randle on the elbow; Kobe working out of post/elbow.

Eric Pincus

I'm not as sold that Lin will make it back by Sunday but still obviously a possibility - looks like Ryan Kelly is on track however

Eric Pincus

While working his way back from his sprained ankle - Jeremy Lin tweaked the other one but he said it's very minor - still shoot for Sunday

Ryan Ward

Jeremy Lin apparently tweaked his OTHER ankle yesterday in individual workouts, according to @Mike Bresnahan Still hoping to play on Sunday.

Mike Bresnahan

State of the Lakers these days: Jeremy Lin tweaked his other ankle during individual workouts Thursday. Still hopes to play Sunday.

Mark Medina

Jeremy Lin said he had a mild sprain on right ankle, but still hoping he can play Sunday

Jody Genessy

Well, this whole conversation turned weird. I'm going to go try to sneak up on Jeremy Lin for another stalker photo.

Jody Genessy

I tried to take a sneaky pic of a New York reunion between Jeremy Lin (Lakers) and Steve Novak (Jazz). Lin noticed. http://t.co/SjdWSgyHts

Mike Trudell

Byron Scott: “We can sit here and say Jeremy (Lin) didn’t play, Nick (Young) didn’t play and all that … but (we still did not do our job).”

Mark Medina

Lakers' floor spacing, 3-point shooting & drives to the basket taking a real hit w/ Nick Young & Jeremy Lin still out.

Mike Trudell

LAL are 0 for 3 from 3 (Utah's 3 for 10). Part of the problem: no dribble penetration for kick outs. Need Lin or at least Clarkson/Henry.

Mike Trudell

Player LAL are missing the most: Jeremy Lin (ankle). Really need his dribble penetration to get into the D. He’s hoping to return Sunday.

Mike Trudell

LAL are lacking for playmakers with Lin, Nash, Clarkson, Henry and Young all injured and Kobe on the bench.

Jody Genessy

Out for the Lakers: Jordan Clarkson, Xavier Henry, Ryan Kelly, Jeremy Lin and Nick Young. LA writer @Mark Medina said Nash will try to go.

Mike Trudell

Ronnie Price will still start tonight as Jeremy Lin remains out with his ankle sprain. Nash would come off the pine.

Aaron Falk

It's a long list of Lakers guards who won't play tonight. Young, Clarkson, Henry, Lin & Nash are all out. Expect to see Ronnie Price.

David Locke

No Jeremy Lin or Steve Nash tonight for Lakers against the Jazz tonight #UTAatLAL

Gary Lee

ICYMI: Jeremy Lin is still dealing with an ankle sprain and won't be playing against the Jazz on Thursday night. lakersnation.com/lakers-news-je…

Gary Lee

Jeremy Lin is still dealing with a sprained ankle and has been ruled out against the Jazz via @Lakers_Examiner. lakersnation.com/lakers-news-je…

Eric Pincus

Looks like Lin won't play Thursday - so Ronnie Price - Scott had called Lin 50/50 for Jazz - Sunday could be return of Kelly Clarkson too

Mark Medina

Lin is shooting to return Sunday vs. Utah at Staples Center

Mark Medina

Jeremy Lin ran today, but he ruled himself out for tomorrow against Utah. Looks like Ronnie Price then will start
