Brooklyn Nets' Lin set to miss season with knee injury

The Brooklyn Nets are mired in a nightmare to start their 2017-18 season after announcing that their starting point guard Jeremy Lin is out for the season, having sustained a ruptured patella tendon during Wednesday's season-opener against the Indiana Pacers.

Jeremy Lin's 2017-18 National Basketball Association season looks to be over after the Chinese-American suffered a knee injury that left him writhing in pain on the court in his team's season-opening loss, the Brooklyn Nets said on Thursday.

ESPN reported there is tremendous concern over his knee in the organization. To see him go down the first game, it has to be tough for him.

According to ESPN, he will undergo an evaluation on his knee in NY with the Nets reportedly concerned over the severity of the injury.

Lin drove aggressively and attacked the basket with the Nets trailing 126-116 with 4:53 to play, going up for a layup in traffic against two defenders. Part of the reason for excitement this season was the fact that point guard Jeremy Lin was finally healthy after playing only 36 games last season. He landed awkwardly and clutched his knee before signaling to the bench and repeatedly mouthing the words "I'm done".

Lin appeared to say "I'm done".
