Jeremy Lin of the New York Knicks is to undergo surgery on his left knee that could potentially bench him through the rest of the regular season, according to NY1. The 23-year-old point guard has missed the last three games due to what he thought was a sore knee. But an MRI revealed that it was actually a torn meniscus. Lin addressed reporters, explaining that the surgery will allow him to play again.
I can't really do much. I can't really cut or jump. So it's pretty clear that I won't be able to help the team unless I get this fixed right now, said Lin.
In the meantime, Baron Davis will fill in as the team's starting point guard. Lin is expected to return to the court in about six weeks.
