Jeremy Lin out for Rockets in Game 4 vs. Thunder, according to report

Tuesday April 30th, 2013

Jeremy Lin will be out for the Houston Rockets' Game 4 matchup with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday night, Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reported.

Lin has a bruised chest and was listed as day-to-day on the Rockets' injury report. Lin's absence means that the matchup looks even more daunting for the Rockets, who already trail the Thunder 3-0 in the best-of-seven series.

Lin had been a non-factor through the first three losses of the series — the last two of which both came by just three points. Lin had only 4.3 points and 2.7 assists per game, while shooting 25 percent from the field. He also had 2.3 turnovers per game.

Francisco Garcia will start in Lin's place. Garcia scored 18 points in the Rockets' Game 3 loss.
