Yes, but could be worse. 2 weeks minimum out, fairly early in the season. Just hope that Lin can recover quick and that this injury has minimal effect on his performance though it probably will have some impact.
From knee injury site:
There are 3 grades of knee sprains:
Grade 1 a few fibres (less than 10%) are damaged/torn. Usually heals naturally
Grade 2 more fibres are torn but the ligament is still intact.
Grade 3 the ligament is ruptured completely torn. May require surgery
Probably wont be out that long but I like that the Rockets are being conservative. I like that they are allowing Harden to heal too. Playoffs are the most important thing, Rockets have depth so they dont need to have players playing with nagging injuries. Next man up
It's weird these situations remind me of Lowry stepping up when brooks got injured and then Dragic stepping up for Lowry and ....
