In a pre-game discussion with reporters, GM Sean Marks tried to project a positive outlook on Jeremy Lin’s second hamstring injury, calling it less severe. But he could offer no timetable for his return.
Sean Marks said Jeremy Lin injury not as severe as the last one #Nets @jlin7— Brian Lewis (@NYPost_Lewis) December 28, 2016
#SeanMarks says no timetable for .@JLin7 return but injury not as severe as last time also not linked to first ink tho both are left hammy.— Greg Logan (@GregLogan1) December 28, 2016
@jlin7 isn't with the #Nets currently but Sean Marks said he's in "good spirits" & the injury is in a different area of hammy so unrelated.— Brian Lewis (@NYPost_Lewis) December 28, 2016
GM Sean Marks said @JLin7 injured left hamstring in different area than first time. Stresses playing time opp for Dinwiddie, LeVert, Foye.— Greg Logan (@GregLogan1) December 28, 2016
In the meantime, the Nets will lean on rookie Isaiah Whitehead at point guard as well, beginning Wednesday night in Chicago.
