Knicks' Jeremy Lin Has Torn Meniscus, Will Miss Remainder Of Regular Season

Sunday April 1st, 2012

Linsanity is screeching to a halt -- Frank Isola of the New York Daily News reports that New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin has a partially torn meniscus in his left knee. He will need surgery and will be missing for six weeks, meaning he won't be back unless the Knicks make a deep playoff run.

Lin averaged 14.6 points, 6.1 assists and 3.1 rebounds per game for the Knicks this season before his injury. He became the team's full-time starter at point guard on Feb. 6, instantly leading the team to seven straight wins.
