Lin was injured on a drive to the basket during the fourth quarter of Brooklyn's 140-131 defeat Wednesday at IN, being helped off the court before limping to the locker room.

Before the injury in 28 minutes of action, Lin poured in 18 points and dished out four assists as Brooklyn looked very risky in the backcourt.

Before leaving the game, Lin had 18 points, 4 assists and made 1 of his 2 three point attempts in 25 minutes.

This is the second season in a row that Lin has been injured. He was limited to just 36 games in 2016-17, mostly because of a left hamstring injury, while Brooklyn finished with the NBA's worst record.

"We feel terrible that the injury will cost him the season, however our entire organisation will be there to support Jeremy in every way possible throughout his recovery".

The Brooklyn Nets didn't just lose their season opener Wednesday against the Indiana Pacers, they lost one of the few players on the roster capable of scoring 30-plus points on a given night. Caris LeVert, in his second year in the National Basketball Association, could get much more time as well. "Jeremy remains an important part of this team and will continue to contribute in a leadership role", Nets general manager Sean Marks released in a statement.

He averaged 20.9 points and 8.4 assists per game in February of that year while leading the Knicks to 10 wins in a 13-game stretch that overwhelmed New York City and caught the imagination of Knicks fans. "We're not playing well here on the road and then an injury on top of it".
