Jeremy Lin will be out for the entire 17-18 season with a ruptured patella tendon in his right knee.
Lin suffered the injury during the fourth quarter of the Brooklyn Nets’ season opener.
Lin is in the second season of a three-year, $36 million deal.
“Jeremy worked tremendously hard during the offseason and in training camp and was excited for the prospects of the team this season,” said Sean Marks. “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.”
