Jeremy Lin Will Not Return in the First Round
The New York Knicks are currently without three point guards, Jeremy Lin, Iman Shumpert and Baron Davis. The team was hoping to get one of them back, Lin, before the series ended but it seems as though that will no longer happen.
Lin was aiming to return to the team sometime this series, but coach Mike Woodson said the Harvard grad will not be coming back for this match-up.
“Speaking with medical and Jeremy, he will not play in this series,” Woodson said after practice [NBA.com].
The Knicks will rely on Mike Bibby and Toney Douglas to fill the void and those players need to make sure they’re on their A-Game for the remainder of the season.
