The Houston Rockets super-sixth man Jeremy Lin hasn’t played since Nov. 27. He returns on Thursday night against the Portland Trail Blazers.
“I feel good. I went through practice today,” Lin said. “Feeling good right now, no limitations…
“I’ll be back (Thursday). I played today and everything’s fine. I’m full go, maybe in terms of a little conditioning.”
He then added jokingly, “Maybe not jumping that high off that right foot, but I never jumped that high on the right foot anyway.”
It was fun, Aaron Brooks.
Prior to the injury, Lin had been shooting a very nice 39 percent from three-point range and has provided the offensive-punch (15.3 PPG) that the Rockets need off the bench. He’ll return to that role and should continue to flourish. He’ll have his hands full in his first game back, against a red-hot Blazers squad.
