BROOKLYN – Brooklyn Nets guard Jeremy Lin had successful surgery this morning to repair a ruptured patella tendon in his right knee. The procedure was performed by Dr. Riley Williams, III at the Hospital for Special Surgery. Lin will miss the remainder of the 2017-18 season, but is expected to make a full recovery. Further updates will be made available as appropriate.
Statement from Nets General Manager Sean Marks.
“Jeremy worked tremendously hard during the offseason and in training camp and was excited for the prospects of the team this season. We feel awful that the injury will cost him the season, however our entire organization will be there to support Jeremy in every way possible throughout his recovery. Jeremy remains an important part of this team and will continue to contribute in a leadership role.”
