Jeremy Lin remains sidelined due to a hamstring injury. The Asian-American guard will miss his 13th straight game when the Brooklyn Nets face the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday night at Barclays Center.
The Nets are 3-9 since Jeremy Lin suffered a hamstring injury on Nov. 02. According to CBS Sports, Lin will not play in the Nets’ upcoming game against the Bucks. The Nets initially put Jeremy Lin on a two-week recovery timetable. However, recent reports revealed that he has no specific timetable for return.
As of now, Isaiah Whitehead served as the Nets starting point guard while Randy Foye and rookie Yogi Ferrell grabbed the backup role. However, none of them could fill the void left by Jeremy Lin. The Asian-American guard proves to be a great leader on and off the court.
The Nets finally ended their seven-game losing streak with a double-overtime victory against the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday. Brook Lopez takes the leadership role on the court while Jeremy Lin shows support in the bench. While recovering, Lin still finds a way to help his team. Coach Kenny Atkinson revealed that Lin takes some notes every game.
“Linology,” Atkinson said. “It’s beautiful. It’s his way of showing he cares. He asked me if he could do it, and I said, ‘Yeah, sure.’ And he just does it, and he hands it to me after every game, and then I hand it too — you know, I’m not exactly sure where it goes.”
However, Atkinson prefers to see Lin on the court than just taking down notes on his side. The Nets are 5-12 and projected to suffer another disappointing season. Lin has been yet to bring his “Linsanity” back in Brooklyn, but he proves to be a big factor for the Nets this season.
