Lin Undergoes Surgery, Knicks Will Stand Pat

Jeremy Lin underwent successful surgery on his knee today, and may not be back on the floor for the Knicks this season, but New York intends to move forward with its current point guards, according to coach Mike Woodson. Woodson told Marc Berman of the New York Post there's no chance the Knicks sign another point guard in the season's final few weeks.

"Absolutely not, not at all," Woodson said. "What is in uniform is what we’re going with."

Baron Davis is dealing with a pulled hamstring, so the Knicks don't want to push him into playing too many minutes. However, Woodson is hoping that a combination of Davis, Mike Bibby, Toney Douglas, and perhaps even Iman Shumpert can handle the point in Lin's absence.

"There’s a concern," Woodson said. "We got three point guards and we can put the rook to the point guard and we can go four point guards to help us until the time Jeremy might come back. I don’t know. We’ll wait and see."

Amidst weekend speculation that the Knicks might decide to sign a point guard, Mike James expressed a desire to play for the team, while Stephon Marbury said he wouldn't be interested.
