Jeremy Lin’s remarkable breakout season may now be over as he will have surgery that will in all likelihood sideline him for the remainder of the season.According to an Associated Press report (via SI.com), Lin will have knee surgery and will be out six weeks.
There are only four weeks left in the regular season. So unless the Knicks, who are clinging to the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference, pull a huge upset in the first round of the playoffs, it is unlikely that Lin will see the court again before the 2012-13 season.
Since his first big game back on February 4th, Lin has averaged 18.5 points and 7.6 assists per game.
