Jeremy Lin posted on Instagram on his excitement to step onto the NBA floor for the first time after he was sidelined last season after he tore his patellar tendon in the first game. He has rebuilt his body, movement, and cannot wait to go back to play in an actual NBA game, albeit it’s still a preseason game.
It looks like Jeremy will come off the bench, which is not a total surprise since he mentioned he’s still in the “Return to Play” protocol due to his rehab. The most important thing is definitely his health and his ability to play throughout the season to play for a new contract next season so minute restrictions or off-the-bench role would take lower priority.
Lloyd Pierce says that he will start Trae Young, Kent Bazemore, Taurean Prince, John Collins and Alex Len.
