Jeremy Lin to have knee injury evaluated amid ‘tremendous concern’
Jeremy Lin is set to have his knee evaluated on Thursday after injuring it in his season debut for the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night.
Lin was driving to the basket and went up for a layup in the fourth quarter against the Indiana Pacers when he landed on his right leg. He went down immediately and was in pain. He even appeared to cry and say “I’m done.”

Lin had 18 points in 25 minutes in the season opener.
This is an awful way to start the season for Lin, who was limited to just 36 games last season because of injuries.
