Lin was the second player to suffer a season-ending injury during the first game of the season, joining Boston Celtics star forward Gordon Hayward at the infirmary.

After a devastating knee injury on Wednesday night's season-opening against the Indiana Pacers, Jeremy Lin will most likely miss the rest of the season. After going up to the basket, he came down awkwardly and hit the floor, immediately clutching his knee. Last season, he only played in 36 games nursing a lingering left hamstring injury. Clutching his right knee, Lin appeared to say "I'm done, I'm done". before bursting into tears.

To replace him, the team could look at soon-to-be-free-agent point guard Jameer Nelson, who was waived by the Denver Nuggets ahead of their season-opener against the Utah Jazz, scheduled to clear waivers on Friday.


The Nets had hoped Lin and recently-acquired point guard D'Angelo Russell could form a high-scoring duo as the team's foundation. Russell's role at the 2 is expected to be filled by some combination of Caris LeVert or Sean Kilpatrick.

According to ESPN, he will undergo an evaluation on his knee in NY with the Nets reportedly concerned over the severity of the injury.
