Hey Brook-Lin fans, guess what? The Lin to our Brook is finally getting close to returning; for real this time. According to Bryan Fonseca on Twitter, Jeremy Lin returned to his first full Nets practice today since injuring his hamstring on November 2 against the Detroit Pistons.
Atkinson said Jeremy Lin looked good in practice today. Still no timetable for any game action. Working on making progress. #Nets
Even though Jeremy Lin is not going to play against the San Antonio Spurs, him practicing in full and playing one-on-one with Caris LeVert and even Coach Atkinson is a great sign. There is still no timetable for his return, but it is looking more and more that it could very well be next week.
So far Lin missed 16 games and Nets are 4-12 without him.
“Just his presence is huge for us,” Atkinson said. “His presence in the locker room, and you have more sway if you’re playing. He’s been great without playing, very supportive of the guys, but it’s just different when you’re out there sweating with the guys.”
