How’s Jeremy Lin’s knee injury? Will he be able to play this season?

One day after Gordon Hayward’s season effectively ended with a gruesome ankle injury, Nets guard Jeremy Lin exited Brooklyn’s Wednesday night game against the Indiana Pacers with a knee injury.

The Nets announced Lin will miss the rest of the season with what has been diagnosed as a ruptured patella of his right knee.

“Jeremy worked tremendously hard during the offseason and in training camp and was excited for the prospects of the team this season,” Brooklyn’s general manager Sean Marks said in a statement. “We feel awful that the injury will cost him the season, however our entire organization will be there to support Jeremy in every way possible throughout his recovery. Jeremy remains an important part of this team and will continue to contribute in a leadership role.”
