Jeremy Lin struggled in Thursday's loss to the Thunder, scoring just six points (2-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go with two assists and one block in 24 minutes of action.
For the first time in eight games, Lin failed to reach double-digits in scoring, while seeing his fewest minutes over that same time frame. Playing along side James Harden in the Rockets backcourt limits Lin's field goal attempts significantly, so when he has a poor shooting night, it really shows in the box score. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Rudy Gay (ankle) will start against the 76ers on Wednesday.
Gay has been playing through an ankle injury, and after being on a slight minutes limit for the last couple of games, he isn't expected to be on Wednesday night against the 76ers. Consider him a solid start going up against a bad team, while featuring an average of 17 points and nearly seven rebounds per game on the season. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Rajon Rondo (toe) will play against the 76ers on Wednesday.
While his fantasy numbers have been solid this season, Rondo has been a turnstile defensively and has brought a bad locker room vibe to Sacramento. Luckily for fantasy owners, the only thing that matters is his statistical production, which has been good so far, so continue to start him on a nightly basis, just like recently saved coach Karl will do going forward.
