Jeremy Lin to miss rest of season after rupturing patella tendon

Report: 'Tremendous Concern' Over Jeremy Lin Knee Injury

Jeremy Lin (knee) leaves Nets' season opener early

The injury is expected to keep Lin out for the entire 2017-18 season.

In the Brooklyn Nets' season opener, Jeremy Lin went down with a knee injury and the Nets announce today that he will miss the rest of the season.

Lin was forced out of Brooklyn's 140-131 loss in IN after he landed awkwardly on his right knee following a driving layup attempt with 4:53 left in the fourth quarter.

Lin was evaluated by team doctors in NY on Thursday before the team announced his diagnosis.

Fuchs, the university president, advised students to shun Spencer and to speak against his "message of hate and racism". Scott's order establishes a "cooperative and coordinated security plan" among state and local law enforcement agencies.

"The injury occurred during the fourth quarter of last night's game at Indiana". The serious nature of the injury was immediately apparent when he yelled out "I'm done", laid on the floor and burst into tears.

"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. He is in the second season of a three-year, $36 million contract he signed with Brooklyn before last season.

Lin started the game at point guard and finished with 18 points and four assists.

This will likely signify Russell's opportunity to play the point guard position once again, likely sliding Allen Crabbe to the starting shooting guard role until a more defined rotation is consolidated by head coach Kenny Atkinson.
