Houston Rockets guard Jeremy Lin was a spark off of the bench for the team and he was playing at a high level, but he suffered a knee injury back on November 27 and has not been able to return to the court since. However, it looks like Lin will be returning to the court soon.
When speaking about his return, Lin said that he expects to be back on the court on Thursday night when the Rockets take a tough challenge from the Portland Trail Blazers.
I feel good. I went through practice today,” Lin said. “Feeling good right now, no limitations…
“I’ll be back (Thursday). I played today and everything’s fine. I’m full go, maybe in terms of a little conditioning.”
He then added jokingly, “Maybe not jumping that high off that right foot, but I never jumped that high on the right foot anyway.”
Having Lin back on the court will provide a huge boost for the Rockets, so hopefully he can return to his old form in his first game back.
