Nets' Lin expected to miss season with right knee injury

Nets' Lin expected to miss season with right knee injury

Jeremy Lin's 2017-18 National Basketball Association season looks to be over after the Chinese-American suffered a knee injury that left him writhing in pain on the court in his team's season-opening loss, the Brooklyn Nets said on Thursday. He signed a three-year, $36 million deal with Brooklyn before his abbreviated 2016 campaign.

Lin suffered the injury during the fourth quarter of the Brooklyn Nets' season opener.

The team announced on Thursday that Lin had been diagnosed with a ruptured patellar tendon.

The agency does not issue similar licenses for cable networks such as CNN and MSNBC, or regulate internet news or other websites. It issues licenses to owners of television stations, which must be periodically renewed.

The excitement and hope came crashing down just as Lin hit the floor in IN on Wednesday night. He landed hard behind the baseline after a drive to the basket and was in tears as he clutched at his knee.

Lin injured the knee after landing awkwardly on a layup attempt. He played in only 36 games last season due to a left hamstring injury.

D'Angelo Russell, the young guard they acquired from the Los Angeles Lakers in the Brook Lopez trade, will likely take over starting point guard duties in Lin's absence. "Jeremy remains an important part of this team and will continue to contribute in a leadership role", Nets general manager Sean Marks released in a statement. You can see him mouth the words, "I'm done, bro". As of now, it's projected that Lin will miss the rest of the team's remaining 81 games. We won't go overboard after one nice game vs. a bad defense, but there's no reason Collison can't hold top-100 value in a 30-minute role for Indy. That lasted just 35 games before a season-ending knee injury.
