The Nets finally gave an update on Jeremy Lin, and it’s not good. The point guard suffered a setback during his rehab from a hamstring injury and is slated to miss another three to five weeks.
“We learned a couple days ago that he re-aggravated it, and we were waiting to see if it calmed down. We’re now taking a conservative, long-term approach, and we’re all on board with this,” Nets general manager Sean Marks said before Monday’s loss to the Spurs. “We’re going to be really cautious where we stand right now. There’s no need to rush him back.”
With Lin signed to be the Nets’ floor leader, the guard’s injuries are a big reason they are an NBA-worst 9-35. He has missed 32-of-44 games, all but one of those due to straining his left hamstring twice and now aggravating it again.
“This third injury has been a hard one to deal with mentally,” Lin said in a statement posted on his Facebook page. “There’s something so draining about the yo-yo effect of going from injured to healthy to injured to healthy that in some ways it would have been easier to have an injury where I knew from the beginning I would be out for a long, set amount of time.”
