Nets’ Lin will miss at least 2 weeks
Nets point guard Jeremy Lin will miss at least two weeks because of a strained left hamstring, the team announced Thursday.
Lin suffered the injury during Wednesday’s 109-101 victory over the Pistons.
Lin, 28, is averaging 15 points and 6.2 assists after signing a three-year, $36 million deal as a free agent during the summer. Because of the injury absence, he will miss games against his former teams: the Hornets today and the Knicks on Wednesday at Madison Square Garden.
The Nets are thin at point guard. Randy Foye has a hamstring injury and Greivis Vasquez (Maryland) an ankle injury, but Foye is expected to return against the Hornets today.
C Timofey Mozgov doesn’t have a facial fracture or concussion but has a bruise around his left eye that will be evaluated daily, the Lakers announced. Mozgov suffered injuries, also including a cut inside his mouth that required four stitches, during Tuesday’s 115-108 loss to the Pacers. He didn’t play in Wednesday’s 123-116 victory over the Hawks and is doubtful for tonight’s game against the Warriors in Los Angeles.
