actually watching the replay again, it doesnt look like they touched it. A non-contact injury that just happened when landed.

Sadly that usually means ACL.

YUP..... some Chinese Tencent/ESPN reporters reporting the match there live had reported it could be a season-ending ACL injury that required surgery !!! :cry: :cry: :cry:

Let's pray IT'S NOT !!!

time to foloow the CBA and the shanghai sharks

BROOKLYN - Brooklyn Nets guard Jeremy Lin had successful surgery this morning to repair a ruptured patella tendon in his right knee. The procedure was performed by Dr. Riley Williams, III at the Hospital for Special Surgery. Lin will miss the remainder of the 2017-18 season, but is expected to make a full recovery. Further updates will be made available as appropriate.

Dr. Riley Williams, III supposed to be one of better doctors

Kenny Atkinson when interviewed during yesterday's practice

“I think my sole, singular thought is for his health, his well-being, his family, it’s really a tough time,” Kenny Atkinson told reporters at Thursday’s practice. “I’m really thinking about him, I’m not even thinking about coaching or what our rotations look like but I just told our guys today, today is about supporting him. Here’s a guy that came back from an injury last year, really worked hard this summer, and to have something like that happen, it’s like the Gordon Hayward thing – you’re just sick about it. You’re physically sick.”

Atkinson went on to explain how Lin approached him after the game to re-assure the second-year coach.

“The great thing he said to me – ‘hey listen, I think we’re better equipped this year. We have more depth’ – and that’s the type of guy he is. He’s obviously going through a tough time and to say that shows what kind of leader he is and how much he cares about the organization.”

Atkinson wouldn’t discuss any new rotation — “Out of respect for Jeremy,” he explained. It’s a particularly tough blow for the coach who helped develop Lin with the Knicks, then brought him to Brooklyn. A big part of the Nets plan this season was to have the 29-year-old Lin mentor the 21-year-old D’Angelo Russell.

“I think that’s part of the frustration. It’s amazing how much those two [Russell and Lin] talked on the court. I think I’ve already said, but it was like, when I’d call a play, they’ve already discussed it. They usually pick the right play. That was an exciting thing to see, how well they were communicating and talking about what was going on – they’re really ultimate professionals in terms of collaborating.”

It’s a tough break on many levels. Lin is a leader for the team on and off the court. He helped with younger players like Russell and serves almost as a ‘player-coach’ for Atkinson. His leadership and work ethic spoke for themselves. Those are the things the Nets will miss with Lin being gone the entire season ... and out of the gym.

“I think the things we’re going to miss are his competitiveness – he really sets the standard with his competitiveness. How much he improved as a defensive player from the time he was with the Knicks up to now is amazing – and then just his leadership by example … his understanding of what the staff wants, what the coaching staff wants. We’ve got to call it what it is, it’s a big blow.”

Like last year, Lin will have to be a leader from the sidelines, once he recovers from imminent surgery.

“He was great last year. He was around all the time. He was in my offense telling me what plays to run. I know he’s going to be active. He’s so invested. He put so much work into this organization. When Sean and I were building here he signed up, maybe when he could’ve gone into some other places. The fact that he committed to us. He’s one of us. He’s a Net. The more he’s around, the better for me.”

Throughout the interview, Atkinson constantly used the word “brothers” and “family”. It’s part of the culture the Nets are trying to build, and one for which Lin helped set the precedent. So, it stung for everybody on the team because nobody wants to see family go down like that. DeMarre Carroll described the plane ride home as, “mild mannered”.

“Obviously, we’ve got to give him some space and figure it out,” Atkinson said. “I think the important thing here is family. I think he needs that support, there’s nothing like family support. I want him to know that this is his second family. We’re here. I want him involved as much as possible. But I could definitely see him saying ‘hey, listen, I need some space. I need some time to get away.’ I think as a group we’ll see what that looks like.”

“They’re so close to it. Watching the clip again – as soon as he went down it seemed like they knew. They ran over there because they don’t want to see their brother, their teammate gets hurt. To get hurt in that manner I think is pretty traumatizing for these guys. They understand how lucky they are to be in this league, how lucky well all are to have our health. I think there’s a lot of emotions for all these guys.”

Still, despite the deflating news, Atkinson and the Nets remain optimistic that they’re headed in the right direction. It isn’t the best situation, but the coach feels the adversity will help the team grow.

“I think we’re in a good place as an organization. We’re strong enough top to bottom, Sean (Marks) all the way down. We’re moving in the right direction; I think as a group together. We’re going to grow from this. It’s not the most fortunate situation but we’ve got a great locker room. I know Jeremy is going to support us.”

well that's step 1. the surgery was the step 1 of what had to go well

now Lin can go into healing, then rehab, then conditioning

which will mean he can play

and then questions about what % back he is, and how durable he will be

Jeremy facing a long battle but I believe in him, good luck dude.

as for I think mal or someone's comments. Lin is different from Yao because Lin's injury is known. the procedure is one of 3 standard procedures or so, it's really a question of how his body responds.

Yao, the surgeon definitely had not worked on any other 7'4" 300 lb subjects. it was about the load, and Yao was to a degree a guinea pig for this theory on how to reinforce Yao's foot. his injury wasn't necessarily a 1 time impact injury but a consequence of how his body offloaded the impact on the court and Yao's long schedule. when Yao came back one of those Yao had no control over it would be the same as what caused his injury and the other one was the doctor exercising in practice what his theory was based on different body types and situations than Yao. in short the guy might have ****** up Yao's surgery or even diagnosis and treatment plan to begin with. with Lin as far as the repair if the guy says it went well it's been done thousands of times on similar injuries

don't give up on Lin yet

totally understandable. I won't be watching any other Nets games this year other than to see how Lin does in the role of Assistant Coach. I'm glad I didn't purchase the NBA League Pass.
