Knicks guard Jeremy Lin said at Sunday's praetice that he thinks coming back for New York's first round series against Miami is a realistic possibility, according to Marc Berman of the New York Post. During Saturday's Game One loss, the Knicks lost guard Iman Shumpert to a torn ACL, and had starting point guard Baron Davis suffer a minor back injury. The team is in desperate need of back court assistance.
On March 31, the Knicks announced Lin would undergo knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. The timetable for recovery was between four and six weeks, so for Lin to return by the end of his team's first round series wouldn't be a total shock, but before today's comments it wasn't expected.
In his one game against the Heat earlier this season, Lin went 1-11 from the field in one of the worst outings of his short career.
