Jeremy Lin a game-time decision for Game 4

Rockets guard Jeremy Lin did not participate in Monday's shootaround, and is still considered a game-time decision for Game 4 against the Thunder. He was a game-time decision for Game 3 with the same chest injury.

Lin tapped out after just 18 minutes during Game 3, and could sit out Game 4 if his chest pain isn't any better. Lin only said he felt "a little better," after bothering his already-bruised chest in Game 3 against the Thunder.

He tallied only 2 points, one assist and one turnover during his 18 minutes on Saturday's 104-101 loss. If his chest injury is the cause for his performance, it would make sense for him to sit for a game and recover.

The Thunder are up 3-0 in the series, despite losing Russell Westbrook. The Rockets need their starters to be healthy and ready to play if they want to avoid a sweep.

If Lin doesn't play,  Patrick Beverley would take over as the starter.
