Jeremy Lin Out With Torn Meniscus
The breakout season for Jeremy Lin has come to an end. He will miss the remainder of the regular season and have surgery on his injured knee.
Linsanity is officially over. Jeremy Lin will be out for the rest of the regular season, as he has elected to get surgery on his knee for a torn meniscus. Now the New York Knicks will be relying on Baron Davis and Mike Bibby when they need Lin the most. Knicks coach Mike Woodson also said that people can see Toney Douglas playing more as well, and it is unlikely that the Knicks will sign another point guard.
Lin said that it’s a six week rehab process, but doctors say that it heals rather quickly. He hopes to be back soon enough to be able to contribute to his team in some way.
If this was done very early in the year, obviously, I don’t know where my career would be. I could be, would be definitely without a job and probably fighting for a summer league spot.
Right now Lin isn’t very effective for his team. He can’t move as fast, and can’t jump. They said that the swelling in the knee has gone down, but the pain has not. The Knicks will now be without both Jeremy Lin and Amare Stoudemire for an extended period of time.
