Knicks' Jeremy Lin Jogging Again, Recovering From Torn Meniscus

Monday April 23rd, 2012

Jeremy Lin took to Twitter today, congratulating his New York Knicks teammates on a hard-fought 113-112 road win over the Atlanta Hawks -- and he also snuck in a minor detail about himself. He's jogging again.

Lin underwent surgery on April 2 to repair the partially torn meniscus in his left knee. He hasn't played since March 24; it's projected that he won't be ready for a return until mid-May. The Knicks would likely need to advance past the first round of the playoffs for Lin to play this season.

Lin played 35 games for the Knicks this season; he averaged 14.6 points, 6.1 assists and 3.1 rebounds per contest. He was the team’s full-time starter at point guard between Feb. 6 and the moment he went down.
