Jeremy Lin says his basketball future uncertain after nasty head injury in Taiwan game
Hopefully Jeremy Lin can bounce back from this and, most importantly, be his healthy self again.
Lin, the focus of “Linsanity” in New York and now playing for the Kaohsiung 17LIVE Steelers in Taiwan, had to leave a game over the weekend after he took an incidental but nasty elbow to the head from former Nets teammate Chris McCullough (now a member of the Formosa Taishin Dreamers). The blow knocked Lin down, and his head slammed into the ground.
Lin was taken for evaluation at a local hospital, but was back on the bench by the end of the game (one where the Steelers lost and were eliminated).
After the game, Lin sounded uncertain about his future, although he also sounded like a 34-year-old evaluating everything. Here’s his quote, via Focus Taiwan.
His basketball future is secondary, what matters most — what we all are hoping for — is that he gets healthy. Any basketball he plays beyond that is icing on the cake.
