The Brooklyn Nets have announced that point guard Jeremy Lin will miss at least the next two weeks with a strained left hamstring. Lin suffered the injury during the first half of Wednesday night’s game against the Detroit Pistons.
The team announced that they will re-evaluate his injury in two weeks.
In a bit of good news, steaming from this injury, it looks as if the Nets will finally get Randy Foye back in the lineup on Friday night, as he has been listed as probable. Otherwise, the Nets are without a veteran point guard, with Lin and Greivis Vasquez both out, and the job landing squarely on rookie Isaiah Whitehead’s lap.
Lin, of course, has been nothing short of impressive in the early goings as a member of the Nets. His will be tough shoes to fill, but the Nets will have to do so for at least the next two weeks, starting on Friday night.
