MIAMI -- One day after cutting and moving laterally on his surgically repaired left knee, New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin says he hopes to return to the court during New York's first-round series with the Miami Heat, possibly as soon as Game 4 on May 6.

"I think I'm gonna evaluate it at the end of the week and see," Lin said after the Knicks' practice on Sunday. "Hopefully I'll feel good by then ... the main thing is to be able to play without thinking about (the injury)."

Lin has already ruled himself out for Games 2 and 3.

The Knicks could also be without center Tyson Chandler (flu) in Game 2 on Monday night. Chandler missed practice on Sunday and interim coach Mike Woodson said the 7-foot-1 center is a game-time decision after his flu symptoms didn't improve overnight.

"I don't know what he's going to feel like tomorrow so hopefully a miracle happens overnight and he' ready to play," the coach said. As for Lin, he played one-on-one with Knicks assistant Kenny Atkinson on Saturday, cutting and moving laterally for the first time since undergoing surgery on April 2 to repair a meniscus tear in his left knee.

On Sunday, Lin noted that he felt "soreness" in his knee. He planned to stay off of it for the rest of the day and re-evaluate the knee on Monday. Lin seemed discouraged about the discomfort on Sunday, calling it a "setback."

"Every day we add something new, so we don't know how it's gonna respond," Lin said.

The second-year guard said he will take contact for the first time this week and hoped to be healthy May 6 when the Knicks host Game 4 at Madison Square Garden.

"I don't really want to make a promise because I just don't know how I'm gonna feel," said Lin, who has been out since March 24. "If I felt good today then that would be more of a possibility, but I didn't feel that great today."

According to the Knicks, Lin was originally expected to return six weeks after surgery. That would set him on course for a return during the second round, but Lin's timetable changed after he played one-on-one with Atkinson on Saturday. Just three days earlier, he had struggled with low-intensity, side-to-side movement and jogging.

"I could do a lot more than I thought I could (on Saturday)," Lin said. " ... It kind of happened really fast."

The Knicks trail the best-of-seven series 1-0 after an embarrassing 33-point loss in Game 1 on Saturday. If the Knicks are down 3-0 going into Game 4, it would make little sense to rush back Lin and risk him re-injuring his knee.

Woodson added that Lin would be playing limited minutes if he returned.

"After going through (surgery), he won't be in basketball shape," Woodson said. "My job is to gauge him ... and make sure he's giving us solid minutes within the short minutes that he plays."

Woodson is dealing with more pressing injuries than Lin's.

Chandler, the Knicks' starting center, has shown little improvement from the flu that limited him to just 21 minutes in Game 1. Chandler was slow to react to rebound opportunities and shots near the rim, finishing with three rebounds, zero points and seven turnovers.

"He's just barely hanging in there," Woodson said of Chandler's condition on Sunday. "He gave 21 minutes but it wasn't the Tyson that we're used to having on the floor."

Woodson also said that Baron Davis (back) may be a game-time decision. The Knicks' starting point guard was limited in practice on Sunday after sitting out most of the second half of Game 1 due to back stiffness.

Davis vowed to suit up Sunday.

"If I wake up in the morning I'm playing," he said.

I hope lin comes back. i think they are worse with him, not to mention he would be very very rusty and probably turn it over a bunch of times.

Worst thing that can happen is they bring him back to soon and he does some serious damage to that knee. Not worth it imo.

Also, what are the knicks record when chandler, melo, amare and lin all play?

If lin was a great defender, and average 10 assists for every 1 turnover, then yeah. Maybe. The Knicks need a lot, but most importantly they need to play under control.

If I were the Knicks I would see where the series is at before I play him. If the Knicks are down 3-0 going into Game 4, the series will be over, no way the Knicks would win that. Why would they bring him back when they are going to lose anyway? I would just have him ready for next season. But if the Knicks are only down 1-2 or somehow have a 2-1 lead I would try it if he is healthy. Seriously, he couldnt hurt.

amare and melo dont work because the spacing is awful, i'm not making **** up here, its just what i see. there is no chemistry between them.

IMO amare needs an elite PG to get the most out of him. Melo is a great scorer but when you have the offesnive game plan woodson had yesterday you saw how easy it was for miami to defend him.

I just hope chandler is feeling better tomorrow, he really should not have played yesterday.

This. I've been advocating moving STAT to the bench for a Harden/KG kind of role for some time now (since Linsanity actually).

IMO amare needs an elite PG to get the most out of him. Melo is a great scorer but when you have the offesnive game plan woodson had yesterday you saw how easy it was for miami to defend him.

I suspect the best way to make them work is move STAT and Lin to play off the bench (maximising STAT and keeping Lin's minutes down some). Of course, with Shumpert out it kind of makes the Starting Unit a bit harder to work out. Would probably have to be something like Melo/Chandler/Fields/Davis and possibly Jeffries.

I just hope chandler is feeling better tomorrow, he really should not have played yesterday.

Agreed. It never bodes well when your All Star defensive center is on an IV before AND After the game.

04-29-2012, 06:52 PM
honestly, why? they will still be swept. just get 100% for next season. but we all know the real reason why this is happening...so casual fans will tune into a most-likely meaningless game 4.

felixng2012
04-29-2012, 06:53 PM
No point in him rushing back. Tyson Chandler has the flu, Baron Davis has a bad back. Stat and Melo can't work well together on the floor due to spacing. Shumpert is done for the season. At best we steal one game at home if even that.

Couple obvious reasons.

1) Woodson is probably pressuring/guilting him to return with Shumpert out.
2) Lin really is close to his team mates, and hates leaving them in the lurch.

That said, unless the series is 2-1 or 1-2, there's no sense in playing him before his knee is 100% unless the medical staff clears him.

If it's 3-0, makes more sense to preserve him since he has a hopefully long career ahead of him unless he's truly 100%.

Yea, not sure woodson will move stat, but if you guys lost tomorrow i can see woody making a move. And honestly, who gives a **** if amare's feelings are hurt becuase he was moved to the bench, the guy is making 20mil out there, probably wearing a ski mask when he picks up his check.

If woodson is rushing for lin to return to try and save his own job(which i dont think is the casse) but if it is then thats crazy

:facepalm: I am a big Lin fan just face the facts. Lin coming off injury won't make much of a difference and its not worth it. Last time he had 8 TOs and minimal impact. What makes you think it will be any different when he is rusty? He would make a big difference against the Pacers but not against the Heat. He still has a lot to improve on. The Heat is probably the team that gives him the most trouble by forcing him to turnover the ball and getting easy fastbreak points.

i'd lean with two, as the major factor with 1 sort of feeding off of that. the knicks brass has to know that they aren't gonna swing this series with or without him. that said, he's also taken a really long time to recover from this surgery. if he is truly 100%, then i guess there's no reason not to. but i doubt he is truly 100%, in which case it's just a silly risk to take esp. after what we saw yesterday. i love me some lin, but i'd rather he just shapes up for next season. i would still prob tune in to see how he did, ffs. oh well.

yeah what i was referring to was before he had elected for surgery, there was some speculation as to whether it was necessary or not. i got that confused with his recovery time, and you're right, he's actually well ahead of schedule considering when they cut him open. which makes me even more reluctant to have him play.

He soid his knee doesn't feel great yet. I doubt he will make it in time.

If he does, that's huge news because we need another guard due to Baron's back problems now and Shumpert's injury. Lin doesn't need to do anything but play 12 minutes of solid ball. I don't want him playing anything more than 20 minutes atleast. Lin and Shump need to be healthy come next season.

He's rushing to come back, because he was a flash in the pan and is not going to live up to this Linsanity hype. Mid season next year, we won't hear from this guy but once a month. If this guy did play, wouldn't it have been worse with all of his turnovers too? He's also not dropping 30, so what's the point? Rest up and try again next season.

I don't want to see him rushing back too soon. Chalmers made him look awful the last time he played down in Miami, I think he had around 7 or 8 To's that game during the peak of his stardom??

He's a nice young player, overrated greatly by the NY fan base, but we are in dire need of some adequate PG play. At least the kid knows how to penetrate the lane, so that would be refreshing to see. However based on the fact he had arthroscopic surgery only a few weeks ago, he should only come back if he really feels 100% healthy.

This series looks to be over soon anyway, no need rushing him back. It would be a disaster if he injured himself again going forward.

I kind of like playing the inserting Lin in a word game.

This series will be LINtastic.

Lin will take a huge LIN on all the Heat players.

The Knicks will now play with some LINtelligence.

If this series is any LINdicator, the Knicks need LIN.

With Lin back, the Knicks will LINterrupt the Heat's offensive and defensive schemes.

The Knicks will LIN game 4 and will LIN the series.

Yeah... didn't have anything to do with the fact that Melo was out that game and the Heat don't respect STAT. Chalmers looked good because of LeBron and Wade's help D, not because he's a good player. He's a backup at best.

If the Heat go up 3-0 and then Lin comes back and leads a 0-3 comeback, the guy deserves a damn movie.

On a more serious note, he probably shouldnt play. Let him rest up and save himself for next year.

Lin
Shumper
Melo
Amar'e
Chandler

If healthy, that squad can easily be the three seed.

Lin leading a 0-3 comeback to win is as likely as Ron Artest coming out of nowhere into the American Airlines Arena during a Knicks-Heat game and elbowing Lebron in the head for no reason.

Lin shouldn't hurry back unless he's 100% and pain free. I don't think he should risk coming back too early, especially when dealing with a knee or ankle ligament problems.

If Lin takes care of the ball and doesn't turn it over too much, then his ability to run the pick and roll will be needed. He can run it with Anthony or Stoudemire and try to get some easy looks for the team. If NY isn't down 3 by the time game 4 comes up, I think it's going to be hard to keep Lin off the court though.

Jeremy Lin reported that he took “a step back’’ Sunday when his knee didn’t react well to his extensive pregame workout on Saturday.

Lin is not considering returning for Game 2 on Monday, or Game 3 in New York on Thursday.

“I’ll see how I feel at the end of the week,’’ he said. “But I don’t want to make a promise.’’

Lin hasn't taken contact since the injury and only run a few times

Don't do it Lin. You'll end up being carried off the court just like Shump!!!

Lin won't be the difference maker in this series so there's NO USE jeopardizing his health and probably setting back his progress in being healthy and ready for next season.

I suspect it will all come down to how close the series is and how good his knee is feeling.

If the series is close (2-1 or 1-2), I can see him jumping in.

If it's 3-0, then I can see him sitting out.

That said, Lin will be rusty and will most likely be played off the bench to relieve minutes for Baron.

As for his last Miami appearance, don't expect the same results. He's rusty and coming off an injury, but if you don't think the coaches and Baron/Bibby weren't working with him extensively so that doesn't happen to him again then you really don't understand how Lin approaches the game.

I expect he'll continue improving. This doesn't mean he'll have a break out game against Miami if he comes back, but don't expect a complete shut down either. He's 23 and far from a static player. Expect that he spent a TON of time going over tape and working on his approach for a rematch.

Not only that, he's looking forward to it...

http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/knicks/lin_aim_game_57xavkDha1Rs3hzmQXicrN


Lin said hes extra motivated because last time he faced the Heat he had a miserable outing after facing a ferocious Miami defense designed to stop him.

My last game against Miami, I was 1 for 11 and a bunch of turnovers, thats obviously in my mind too, Lin said. I dont want that to be my last game.

There's already "trade amare" threads. They've been there all season.

Knicks fans fall pretty much into 3 camps.

1) Trade Amare for what you can get.
2) Trade Melo since you'll get a crappy trade for Amare (not insurable) and you can get a decent number of good players for him.
3) Leave it be and see what happens after a training camp.

There's been occassional murmurs of the 4th option, which is blow the team up, get rid of Amare and Melo, and restart with a much younger team built around Chandler, Lin, Shumpert, etc. Those have been on the fringe (and rarely mentioned), especially since it's more likely to win the lottery than Dolan dumping both Melo and Amare.
