Brooklyn Nets point guard Jeremy Lin is currently recovering from knee surgery, and he is expected to be out of action until early next season. But despite the setback, Lin has been very positive, and he has a positive effect on his teammates. Jeremy finally returned to an NBA court last Tuesday night as he joined the Nets in their shoot-around.
During the Nets' season opener last October, Lin was having a great game against the Indiana Pacers. However, he injured his right knee during a layup attempt late in the game. Lin could be seen crying after the injury to his knee, per Bleacher Report. It was determined the next day that Lin suffered a ruptured patella tendon in his right knee.
It was a heart-breaking moment for Lin and his fans, as his second season in Brooklyn ended quickly. Lin signed a three-year, $36 million deal with the Nets two summers ago, but he has struggled with injuries. Last season, Lin only played in 36 games in his first year with the Nets. Jeremy was hampered by a right hamstring problem all season before coming down with an ankle injury late in the year. According to the New York Post, Lin has decided to remain with the Nets next season, opting in to the final year of his deal.
