Brooklyn Nets guard Jeremy Lin will likely miss the entire season due to a ruptured patellar tendon, the team announced Thursday.
Lin was injured when he landed awkwardly on a drive to the basket during the 4th quarter of the Nets’ 140-131 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night.
“Jeremy worked tremendously hard during the offseason and in training camp and was excited for the prospects of the team this season,” Nets general manager Sean Marks said in a statement Thursday.
“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.”
