Jeremy Lin Nets Injury News: May Return in January, Hamstring Strain Explained

The latest Jeremy Lin Nets news reveal that the star could return to court by January 2017 already after a hamstring strain. This is a disheartening news for the Brooklyn Nets who need Lin badly to bolster their performance.

Jeremy Lin Nets updates reveal that head coach Kenny Atkinson has talked of Lin recovering well. However, fans will still have to be disappointed since no exact timeline has been revealed for the athlete’s return. Lin is still on track with his recuperation procedure.

Parent Herald reports that Jeremy Lin will not play the game against the Trail Blazers on Saturday. He may also miss several other games after that without any specific date for a return. Hamstring strains are known to take several weeks to months before a full recovery is met.

However, Lin has been posting positive messages on social media over the last few days which points to a good recovery.

Jeremy Lin injury updates are hard to come by. Even Atkinson was unclear about when Lin would return to court. Some are speculating that he could return in January though nothing is confirmed yet. The Brooklyn Game has also examined Lin’s hamstring problem in detail.

What The Hamstring Strain Means for JLin?

Lin is set to miss his 8th game in a row after the hamstring strain set in on the 2nd of November. Hamstring strains are pretty tough to decode, particularly since they refuse to go away for quite a long time. Hamstring strains usually need anything between 3-8 weeks for total recovery. However, if it is a major strain, this period could even be longer.

If these strains are not treated suitably and athletes do not get adequate recuperation time, it can be damaging for their careers. The Brooklyn Nets need Lin desperately but they will not risk him until he is ready.
