Yesterday, Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Jeremy Lin was very doubtful for Game 5 and it looked like some of the point guard duties for the Knicks would fall to Carmelo Anthony. And some to Mike Bibby.
So of course, Woodson had to be asked about it again on Tuesday, and this time he tried to close the door so he won’t get asked about it again on Wednesday. (Good luck with that, coach). Here is Woodson’s quote, via the AP.
“Speaking with medical and Jeremy, he will not play in this series,” Woodson said after practice.
I think it’s cute that Woodson acts like there might be a Game 6 in this series.
It’s all ending Wednesday night in Miami, likely in a very ugly fashion for the Knicks. The fact that Lin couldn’t play this series — along with Iman Shumpert, Amare Stoudemire and Baron Davis getting injured — sped the demise along and made the series less competitive. But the Knicks got a win in the playoffs, so consider that a step forward.
But Knicks fans will not see Lin on the court until next season.
