Nets’ Lin will miss at least 2 weeks

Baltimore Sun - - BASEBALL - News ser­vices

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.
