Basketball Jeremy Lin Re-Aggravates Strained Left Hamstring by Jason Goldstein January 23, 2017 The Brooklyn Nets announced Monday that starting point guard Jeremy Lin re-aggravated his strained left hamstring and will be sidelined for an additional 3-to-5 weeks. “During the course of his rehab, Jeremy re-aggravated his strained left hamstring and will be out approximately three to five weeks as he continues to work towards a full recovery,” general manager Sean Marks said. “We understand and appreciate Jeremy’s competitive desire to get back on the court with his teammates, however, we are going to be cautious with his rehab in order to ensure that he is at full strength once he returns.” Lin has played in just 12 of the Nets’ 43 games this season, averaging 13.9 points and 5.8 assists. He originally strained his hamstring back in November and missed 17 games. He was able to return briefly, but was forced out of action once more after injuring a different part of his hamstring. Lin has not played since December 26. The Nets (9-34) have the worst record in the NBA and would be significantly better with Lin on the court. They are 3-9 with him in the lineup and 6-25 without him. Rookie Isaiah Whitehead has been playing a lot of minutes at point guard for the Nets, with journeyman Spencer Dinwiddie also receiving minutes. Fellow rookie Caris LeVert could also be given a chance to run Brooklyn’s offense somewhere down the line. The Nets, sans Lin, will take on the San Antonio Spurs at home on Monday evening.
