Jeremy Lin couldn't play in Monday night's 89-80 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks due to a sore knee. Now, he's questionable once again for Wednesday's game against the Orlando Magic, according to ESPN.com.
Lin was missed even in the win a few days ago, with Baron Davis not being able to jump start the offense in a similar fashion. However, Lin knows it's important not to rush back.
"I just want to make sure when I come back that I'm 100 percent," Lin said.
With just a two game lead on ninth-place Milwaukee and only three games behind Philadelphia for the top spot in the Atlantic Division, every game is crucial for the New York Knicks. Lin's return coupled with Carmelo Anthony being able to play tonight would obviously be a huge boon for New York's chances of winning.
The Knicks need to step up and hope Lin can get back on the court sooner rather than later with Dwight Howard and co. coming to Madison Square Garden.
