LIN FEELS “VERY WELL” AFTER KNEE SURGERY
Tue, 10 Apr 2012 01:34 PM EDT

Point guard Jeremy Lin said his knee rehab is going well, but he doesn’t expect to play in the 1st round of the playoffs, if the Knicks qualify.

“I feel unless something goes very well I would not get there,” Lin said before Knicks-Bulls game.

Lin underwent surgery to mend a meniscus tear in his left knee. He’s been walking and riding a bike and intends to have a full range of motion soon.

The 2nd-year guard hesitated to forecast he’d be back earlier than 6 weeks, which was the 1st schedule offered by the N.Y Knicks, who entering Sunday stood a half-game in front of the Bucks for the 8th and last playoff spot in the East.

“All the doctors are saying this is normal,” said Lin, who hopes to resume running the week after next. “After about 1½ to 2 weeks is when you can see how well you are doing.”

Lin doesn’t want to rush his come back to the court. He also didn’t want to risk hurting the team’s chemistry if he returned in the middle of the playoffs. Baseball betting lines

“I wish to get to 100% and then come back, hopefully see what I can do. By then it’ll be a different team identity, chemistry, so it gets difficult, too,” Lin said.

A telling sign in Lin’s recovery will be when he begins to cut laterally and jump. Football odds

“I’m trying hard to be cautiously hopeful I guess,” claimed Lin, who will not travel with the team this week. The surgery last week put a pause on Lin’s storybook season.

NY signed the undrafted guard and previous Harvard standout after he was waived by 2 teams in the preseason. Lin was buried on the Knicks bench for his 1st 6 weeks with the team, even spending a short stint with the Knicks’ D-League affiliate. But given an opportunity to play in late February, he led N.Y to 7 straight wins and attracted global attention in the procedure.

Lin played intensive minutes when he took over as the Knicks starter. He said that the condensed schedule created wear and tear on his knee.

“Really, that’s what it was as the games came so fast. Playing 2, 4 games a week, there had been actually never a week apart from All-Star,” declared Lin, who logged 35.1 minutes per game in Feb. and 30.8 minutes per game in March after playing just 24 total minutes in his 1st month with the team.

Lin will be a limited free-agent next season. The Knicks are anticipated to be in a position to match any offer to Lin, because of a clause in the collective negotiating contract. Some have reasoned that NY could also make a run at Steve Nash, who is anticipated to check free agency.

Lin did say that he’d take another strategy to the offseason now that he knows he’ll play extended minutes.

“We’re already creating the plan to get my legs prepared and my back,” Lin said. “… Hopefully next year is going to be a great deal different in terms of my body having the ability to keep energy at a superior level.”
