Insight: Lin's scoring average is down for the third year in a row. With Patrick Beverley (10.2 ppg, 2.7 apg, 3.5 rpg) getting most of the minutes at point guard, Lin is a pretty unexciting fantasy option.

Description: Jenny Dial Creech of the Houston Chronicle has confirmed that Rockets guard Jeremy Lin will play Monday against Dallas.

Insight: Lin missed the last four games due to back spasms after sitting out six straight due to a knee sprain from Nov. 29 to Dec. 8. He's missed 10 of the last 12. Patrick Beverley broke his hand Saturday, so Lin will probably start Monday.
