Lin is out tonight (knee). Baron starting. Shumpert also starting, with Fields at the 3. #knicks— Mark Hale (@HaleMark) March 26, 2012
Lin will join forward Amar'e Stoudemire and backup center Jared Jeffries as being out with injuries for tonight's game. Lin's right knee is sore and he is listed as day-to-day. Stoudemire is out indefinitely while he undergoes non-surgical treatment of a bulging disc in his back. Lin did take part in Monday's workout after sitting out the fourth quarter of New York's win over Detroit on Saturday.
Lin leads the Knicks with 6.1 assists per game this season. Lin is also third on the Knicks in scoring with 14.6 points per game and second on the team in steals (1.57 steals per game).
