Jeremy Lin will miss six weeks with a meniscus tear. He will have surgery.


Steve Popper ‏ @StevePopper
Knicks call it 6 weeks - but there are not even 4 weeks left in regular season

Season over.

I hate life. We won't make past the month of April with 8 injuries.

D'antoni: "I'm going to ride him like a freakin Secretariat"
Reporter: "Aren't you worried about him playing 44 minutes a game?"
D'antoni: "He's 23, he can rest in the off-season"

I hate him. I hate him so much, I'm glad that joke of a coach is gone.

Umm...

"There might go their chance to get to the second round..." I think is more fitting. Lin wasn't the championship piece to that team...and even with him, if they finish with the 7th or 8th said I'd be hard pressed to imagine them winning that series.

It's not the end of the world for us.. Baron's gonna have to step up his game, Shumpert's gonna have to learn how to play the point a bit better and Douglas needs to be given a chance.

We absolutely blew Orlando out of the water with him and Melo has average nearly 30 and 9 in his last three without Lin.. I'm positive we can still make the playoffs.

Before the injuries we were 2 games behind Philly. So, let's say nobody gets hurt and we won last night and we win tonight, we could have been a 4th seed. So, It would have been realistic for us to get to the ECF and see where it goes.

Lin certainly is the main piece. Because with Melo getting his explosive scoring back, teams cannot double team Lin or Amare which leaves Lin to penetrate and create.

You have 3 guys in a starting lineup that require double teams. I'm sure that isn't going to be easy for any team to handle.

No. But mensiscus problems generally develop over time. They can happen due to sudden trauma...but this sounds like it was a gradual thing. Repetitive and consistent stress on the meniscus can do the trick, and I think that's what happened.

It's not fair to blame Mike for this...but I don't think it's crazy to suggest that him going from playing a few high intensity practice minutes a week to playing 35+ minute NBA games could have played a role in this. He was rode like a racehorse.

It's just too bad about Lin. He has been one of the few bright spots for the Knicks this season. I'm still not sold on him being a top point guard but i think he's proved he can be a starting pg in this league. Hopefully he can come back next year and continue where he left off. I didn't think the Knicks could make it out of the first round prior to the recent injuries. I wouldn't be surprised to see them miss the playoffs now.

This shortened season is really depressing in some ways.

Not only has the quality of the games gone down, but it's burning through athletes on every team at a ridiculous pace.

Injuries up on every team, who knows how many great careers shortened or destroyed? How many promising matchups that became disappointments... that became lackluster with so many athletes playing hurt?

As for Lin, I feel bad for him. He didn't ask to be put on a pedastel or hyped, or become people's personal cause. He didn't ask to be on the SI Covers, or Time, or pasted on every newspaper in sight.

All he did was get on the hardwood and play his heart out.

He just wanted to play ball for a living. Something I would think everyone on this board could relate to, but instead some people prefer to bash him, or wish him ill will, hoping that he'll do badly so the spotlight will move, or so that it will reaffirm their belief that he didn't accomplish anything special.

Some folks complain that Lin is over-rated. They're happy to forget that every player is over/under rated by someone. Lin never claimed to be great or awful. He felt he could play if given the chance. It's the fans and media that placed their expectations upon him -- that he was a superstar in the making, or a fraud waiting to be exposed.

How many times have we heard of teams where the players hate eachother? Where players couldn't wait to leave to chase more money or a ring? Yes, Lin's run was amazing and an anomaly in many ways. It was also some of the most fun basketball I've ever seen. Not just the style of fast passing and ball sharing, but you could really see that the team was having fun. Laughing and cheering eachother on, celebrating at every good play by their team mates, taking the collective blame when they fell short.

It saddens me that some people are happy that he's now injured, that he can't help when his team needs him, the players that so obviously have become his friends on and off the court.

I guess it takes all types of people to make the world go around.

Oh, another troll? You add the "This is so what a Knick fan would say" to fuel absolutely nothing but hot air.

The team was poorly coached even with injuries. It's not a secret, we are 9-2 under a different coach, 3 games away from the 4th seed. You idiot.

The Dallas Mavericks are 4 losses away from the 8th seed. I guess they are a joke too?

The Knicks would be considered unlucky because Amare last year missed the playoff games with a back injury and Billups got hurt in game 1 with a knee injury.

Everything is playing out the same exact way again. The Knicks started the season out with big injuries and they are ending it the same way. Which is considered unlucky circumstances.

I'm not even sure the intelligence level of the forum at this point. It's really sad how many people are jealous and spiteful towards the kid due to his popularity which he has nothing to do with but I'm sure if this was some other star from their team, they would be crying about it.

If he can get back by week 4/5, he can make some first round games.

Of course, no idea what kind of shape he would be in. And given his age, I certainly hope he wouldn't take any silly risks and try to play too soon. It's not worth gambling his knees and future just to play a week or two early.

I'm not even sure the intelligence level of the forum at this point. It's really sad how many people are jealous and spiteful towards the kid due to his popularity which he has nothing to do with but I'm sure if this was some other star from their team, they would be crying about it.

Wow do you know what the word hypocrite means? :D

1. We get the Knicks greatness jammed down our throats.
2. No one hates Lin. Most are actually happy that someone like him could still have success in the NBA. Its a great story. They just hate the fact that fans like yourself keep posted how he is a top five point guard in the NBA.
3. This is a possible thought, teams could still win even with injuries. The Bulls are 12-4 without Rose. The Hawks have a better record than the Knicks without Horford. Good teams get past injuries.
4. It sucks for Lin as he is having a breakout season but if the Knicks were as good as you and fans like yourself say they were I think they'd do just fine with Davis taking the point.
5. How in the world could you blame D'antoni????? Thats silly. If it weren't for him you'd never even know who Jeremy Lin is. Blaming him for starting Lin for a month... :facepalm:

Agree with your post, but point 3 is not quite true in the larger context of things. I'm not that concerned about regular season play, but it's postseason play that is worrisome. Lin will be out and Amare will not be 100%. The Knicks really have no shot in the playoffs now. And neither do the Bulls without Rose or the Hawks without Horford. Not saying they aren't good teams even with those injuries, just that they need those guys healthy to achieve what they expect from the team.

If watching Baron wasn't like walking on eggshells waiting for him to pull or tweak something or he didn't run out of gas after 15 minutes of play on a nightly basis then Knick fans wouldn't be so worried. The thought of Bibby and/or Douglas getting major minutes in the playoffs is sickening to say the least.

Uh, no. Our best defensive unit is one that includes neither Melo, Amare, or Lin (76 defensive rating.) We play our best defense when Smith, Shumpert, and Jeffries are on the floor.

We need those guys for offense, though, definitely.

Losing Lin is a huge hit. No one else on the team can get Chandler, Novak, or other guys set up in their sweet spots like he can.

This team has been hit with a lot of adversity and injures but we're still in a position to win the division. We have to play through it.

This shortened season is really depressing in some ways.

Not only has the quality of the games gone down, but it's burning through athletes on every team at a ridiculous pace.

Injuries up on every team, who knows how many great careers shortened or destroyed? How many promising matchups that became disappointments... that became lackluster with so many athletes playing hurt?

As for Lin, I feel bad for him. He didn't ask to be put on a pedastel or hyped, or become people's personal cause. He didn't ask to be on the SI Covers, or Time, or pasted on every newspaper in sight.

All he did was get on the hardwood and play his heart out.

He just wanted to play ball for a living. Something I would think everyone on this board could relate to, but instead some people prefer to bash him, or wish him ill will, hoping that he'll do badly so the spotlight will move, or so that it will reaffirm their belief that he didn't accomplish anything special.

Some folks complain that Lin is over-rated. They're happy to forget that every player is over/under rated by someone. Lin never claimed to be great or awful. He felt he could play if given the chance. It's the fans and media that placed their expectations upon him -- that he was a superstar in the making, or a fraud waiting to be exposed.

How many times have we heard of teams where the players hate eachother? Where players couldn't wait to leave to chase more money or a ring? Yes, Lin's run was amazing and an anomaly in many ways. It was also some of the most fun basketball I've ever seen. Not just the style of fast passing and ball sharing, but you could really see that the team was having fun. Laughing and cheering eachother on, celebrating at every good play by their team mates, taking the collective blame when they fell short.

It saddens me that some people are happy that he's now injured, that he can't help when his team needs him, the players that so obviously have become his friends on and off the court.

I guess it takes all types of people to make the world go around.


Totally agree..

1. We get the Knicks greatness jammed down our throats.

Big Market will do that along with the haters who do it on purpose for other fans to hate the knicks, lakers, heat, celtics, mavs.2. No one hates Lin. Most are actually happy that someone like him could still have success in the NBA. Its a great story. They just hate the fact that fans like yourself keep posted how he is a top five point guard in the NBA.

There is no real knick fan that really thinks that and again the haters and dupes will say this to make other fans hate us, view us as ignorant fans.
3. This is a possible thought, teams could still win even with injuries. The Bulls are 12-4 without Rose. The Hawks have a better record than the Knicks without Horford. Good teams get past injuries.

The Bulls have won because they have had basically the same team for years and the Hawks the same way. The knicks added so many new pieces didnt get to mesh and the injuries never alowed them to play together.
4. It sucks for Lin as he is having a breakout season but if the Knicks were as good as you and fans like yourself say they were I think they'd do just fine with Davis taking the point.

I think the knicks will be fine, however Davis is coming off a back injury and hasn't gotten his legs under him just yet and Bibby is playing like an 80 year old man.
5. How in the world could you blame D'antoni????? Thats silly. If it weren't for him you'd never even know who Jeremy Lin is. Blaming him for starting Lin for a month... :facepalm:

D'antoni or any other coach would of had to give Lin a shot we had no pg healthy and Lin would of had to play. D'antoni just didnt manage his time correctly and Lin just took so many hits.

NY Knicks hold off on Jeremy Lin injury announcement until after NBA playoff ticket deadline passes


The Knicks were eventually going to get around to revealing the troubling results of Jeremy Lin’s MRI but certainly not before last Wednesday.

That was a crucial day inside the club’s executive offices at Two Penn Plaza because March 28 represented the deadline for season- ticket holders to purchase all four rounds of the playoffs.

In fact, in the email sent to subscribers, there is a picture of Lin leaping in celebration. Yet, it was two days before the deadline when Lin and the Knicks’ medical staff learned that the second-year point guard/cash cow was suffering from a torn meniscus in his left knee and that he wouldn’t be jumping for joy anytime soon.

Although Lin waited until Saturday before formally making the decision to have surgery, it certainly made business sense for the organization to withhold medical information about its marquee attraction. But that doesn’t explain why the Knicks, who are 2 games ahead of Milwaukee for the eighth and final playoff spot with 13 games left, weren’t forthcoming about Lin's condition after Wednesday’s postseason ticket deadline passed.

Nor does it explain why the Knicks contradicted interim head coach Mike Woodson, who first raised the possibility of Lin’s “sore” knee injury being serious enough to keep the Knicks’ starting point guard sidelined for the remainder of the regular season.

It’s not every day that an organization goes out of its way to refute something its head coach says — when in fact Woodson was simply being truthful. On Friday in Atlanta, Woodson told reporters that he didn’t know “when” or “if” Lin would return to the lineup. Within one hour, the Knicks’ media relations staff released a statement to select media outlets contradicting Woodson.

Suddenly, the Knicks’ position was that there was a chance Lin could play either Tuesday in Indiana or Thursday in Orlando. In theory, they weren’t wrong. Lin had yet to decide whether to go ahead with surgery. However, Lin was leaning that way and the fact remains that the club had yet to announce the results of an MRI taken four days earlier. Lin’s knee wasn’t just sore. It is damaged.

Woodson didn’t misspeak, as was reported. He was actually giving reporters and fans a reasonable appraisal of Lin’s status. It will be interesting to see if Woodson’s honesty is appreciated by the Garden since honesty isn’t necessarily MSG policy. Woodson may have to conform if he wants the interim tag removed. Thus far, Woodson has come across as sincere and blunt.

Woodson supports Lin’s decision but when a reporter asked him if he thought there was a chance Lin would postpone the surgery until after the season, Woodson said: “Only he knows his body.”

Neither Woodson nor Lin is signed beyond this season and of the two Lin is all but assured of returning. He’s proven himself as an NBA player while the money he’s making the Knicks in terms of sponsorships and marketing cannot be underestimated.

The Knicks will have to determine if Lin is a starter or whether they should seek an upgrade and make Lin the backup. Baron Davis and Mike Bibby are both free agents this summer and there is a strong chance neither will return.

Steve Nash is also slated to become a free agent and his future with the Phoenix Suns is uncertain. A person close to Nash, the two-time MVP, says he will not rule out the Knicks even though his former coach in Phoenix, Mike D’Antoni, was replaced by Woodson three weeks ago.

The Knicks don’t have cap space to sign Nash and they would have to get creative in order to acquire him. A point guard tandem of Nash and Lin would work for everybody. The Knicks would be elevated to contending status while still making loads of money. They may not even have to remind season- ticket holders of a playoff deadline anymore.
