Jeremy Lin Latest Injury Update: Nets Guard Back In Training, But Not Getting Back On The Court?
Brooklyn Nets star guard Jeremy Lin hasn't played since suffering a strained left hamstring against the Detroit Pistons on Nov. 2. It's unclear when he'll return to the court. Lin suffered the injury during that night's 109-101 victory over Detroit after playing 16 minutes. He said he "took a long step" in transition and planted on his left foot when he felt a tweak in his hamstring. According to News Day, The Nets' priority is to completely heal Jeremy Lin's injured hamstring.
Lin will miss at least the next two weeks with a strained left hamstring. Lin suffered the injury during the first half of Wednesday night's game against the Detroit Pistons. The team announced that they will re-evaluate his injury in two weeks. However, despite the temporary of the said two weeks, Brooklyn Nets have not announced yet when will Jeremy Lin back in the game. Brooklyn Nets general manager Sean Marks sat down with YES Network's Sarah Kustok to discuss his thoughts from the start of the season. Among the topics was the progression of Jeremy Lin.
The Brooklyn Nets broadcasted an interview between Sarah Kustok and Sean Marks on Facebook Live. The assembly included questions about the Nets start to the 2016-17 seasons, surprises and disappointments thus far, and questions from Nets season ticket holders. When discussing disappointments, Marks stated, "I don't know if there's been a whole lot of disappointment, I think one would clearly be the unlucky injuries, namely losing Jeremy (Lin) with the hamstring."
The General Manager of Nets informed the fans that Jeremy Lin is progressing well and is still at practice. Sean Marks confirmed that they have been in touch, and he advised Lin to take time on his own to fully recovered. Though not providing a timetable for Lin's return, Marks noted that Lin is determined to return and has been eager to make a comeback. However, time and patience is the key, and the nets have evidently cautious with Lin.
Lin has been nothing short of impressive in the early goings as a member of the Nets. His will be tough shoes to fill, but the Nets will have to do so for at least the next two weeks. Without Lin, Brooklyn has gone a dismal 3-12 and lost 10 of their last 11 games. The Nets need Lin, but hamstrings are tricky. Everyone will just have to keep in mind that it will be better for Lin to return in full force than half recovered.
