    I don't know about that! It still hurts I am sure.

    The bigger issue is that they want to make sure they can stabilize the knee. So yeah, he's too valuable to risk putting back in and doing something that results in a more serious injury (ala RG3). Those loosened ligaments need some time to tighten back up.

    I am sure Lin is probably already begun rehab (i.e. weights).

    LOF's on constant attack. They're like killer bees, relentlessly protecting the Lin errr... hive. :grin:

    He is hoping we lose. Tonight LOF's are going to be Nets fans. This is why we all them fake fans.

    Someone claiming Lin is overworked? That's a first.

    We've already needed Lin in some games to save us, and he will be an important part when the games matter later so he needs to get fully healthy, take extra time if necessary. We saw how he played last year when he wasn't 100%.

    I see no need to do anything to the rotation if Harden plays, Brooks just replaces Lin. If Harden is out, maybe Brewer gets some burn, but otherwise no changes needed.

    The good thing is Brooks has been playing very well recently (lol been reminding me of late-2000s AB0 the past 3 games or so).

    Need him to continue stepping up while JLin is out.

    Bummer.

    Get well soon Jeremy!

    Hope we get a chance to see some Cannan in the mean time.

    Not sure what to make of Canaan yet.

    He put up 22 points and 15 assists in his last game. That sounds really impressive, except the final score was 140-139... in REGULATION. :eek::eek:

    Cannan will never be a starter. His max is a sparkplug type role off the bench

    I'm thinking Harden won't play as well. Lin and Harden now the best backcourt on the bench. Moral support

    Brooks doesn't need to create contact going to the hoop, he just scores going to the hoop.

    Hopefully Brooks and the rest of the bench will continue to step up because we will need the scoring.

    get well rested Lin - we need you back later in the season

    I think we can hold out against the Nets without Harden and Lin.

    I hope harden can be back for the Spurs game though.
