Nets Lose Lin For Season

Jeremy Lin. @BrooklynNets.

Brooklyn Nets guard Jeremy Lin will miss the entire 2017-18 season with a ruptured patella tendon of the right knee.

The injury occurred during the fourth quarter of Wednesday night’s loss to Indiana on opening night. 

Lin, who was entering his second year with the Nets, can be one of the most dangerous point guards in the NBA when healthy.

Aside from the three weeks of Linsanity he had with the Knicks in February 2012, success has been fleeting as he has struggled to stay on the court with Houston, the Lakers, Charlotte, and the Nets.

Lin's best season was with Charlotte in 2015-16, when he played 78 games and averaged 11.7 points with three assists per game.

Last season in Brooklyn, Lin managed to play only 36 games, with an average of 14.5 points and 5.1 assists.

Nets General Manager Sean Marks said in a statement, “Jeremy worked tremendously hard during the offseason and in training camp and was excited for the prospects of the team this season. We feel awful that the injury will cost him the season, however our entire organization will be there to support Jeremy in every way possible throughout his recovery. Jeremy remains an important part of this team and will continue to contribute in a leadership role.”

Lin had successful surgery on Friday morning. The procedure was performed by Dr. Riley Williams, III at the Hospital for Special Surgery. Lin is expected to make a full recovery.
