Jeremy Lin injury: Nets star out for season

Trevor Booker of the Nets poses for

The Brooklyn Nets are mired in a nightmare to start their 2017-18 season after announcing that their starting point guard Jeremy Lin is out for the season, having sustained a ruptured patella tendon during Wednesday's season-opener against the Indiana Pacers.

Lin was attacking the rim in the fourth quarter when he landed awkwardly along the baseline.

Nets guard Jeremy Lin had to be helped to the locker room Thursday (AEDT) against the Pacers. The serious nature of the injury was immediately apparent when he yelled out "I'm done", laid on the floor and burst into tears. While it's encouraging that he was able to walk off the court on his own, there's still "tremendous concern".

Lin played just 36 games for the Nets last season due to multiple hamstring injuries.




"We feel very bad 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".

He averaged 20.9 points and 8.4 assists per game in February of that year while leading the Knicks to 10 wins in a 13-game stretch that overwhelmed New York City and caught the imagination of Knicks fans.

According to ESPN, he will undergo an evaluation on his knee in NY with the Nets reportedly concerned over the severity of the injury.
