Just how crazy has this season been in the NBA? Perhaps its biggest breakout star will now be sidelined for the remainder of the regular season, and potentially the start of the Playoffs, as Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin needs knee surgery, according to multiple reports. Howard Beck of The New York Times has the details:
Jeremy Lin’s magical season has come to an abrupt and untimely end because of a knee injury that will require surgery. Lin, the Knicks’ point guard, has a small, chronic meniscal tear in his left knee, the Knicks announced Saturday night. He will undergo arthroscopic surgery and is expected to miss six weeks, wiping out the rest of the regular season and possibly the first round of the playoffs — assuming the Knicks make it. “It’s a big blow,” Coach Mike Woodson said.
