Jeremy Lin Questionable for Game 3

by April 25, 2013

Houston Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin sat out the entire second half of Game 2 against the OKC Thunder due to a bruised chest muscle. There’s no telling if he’ll suit up for Game 3 back in H-Town. Per the Houston Chronicle: “X-rays were negative, and he is hopeful that he can return on Saturday for Game 3 against the Thunder, but as with his planned return on Wednesday, he knew it was too soon to say. ‘This is easily the most frustrating thing that’s happened this entire season,’ Lin said. ‘I’ve been healthy all season. The second half of a playoff game, on the road, we’re playing well, Game 2, it’s just … yeah, it speaks for itself. It was fine as I was sitting here at halftime. I tried to run out of the tunnel and couldn’t really run. When I did, it would go crazy. We’re supposed to just see what happens tomorrow, how it feels tomorrow. As long as stuff stops spasming, I’m good. I don’t know how any of this stuff works.’ Lin received treatment through the second half but never returned to the bench. He was not sure how he was injured, but by halftime he knew it might be more serious than he realized in the first half. ‘I don’t know who I ran into,’ Lin said. ‘I hit somebody. I thought it would be OK. I came back in for halftime. I put some heat on there and tried to run and couldn’t really run. They’re just saying X-rays are negative. I’ll come in tomorrow and get some treatment.'”
