Jeremy Lin Injury Update: Knicks' Guard May Return To Action In Game 5 Vs. Heat

The New York Knicks extended their season with an 89-87 win over the Miami Heat in Game 4 of their 2012 NBA Playoffs first-round series, and now they may get one of their core pieces back. Point guard Jeremy Lin, who has been out of action since early April with a torn meniscus, is eying a return to the court for Wednesday's Game 5 in Miami, according to several reports.

Lin has not played since April 2, but with backup point guard Baron Davis now out for the forseeable future after suffering a serious knee injury on Sunday, Lin's return would come in the nick of time (no pun intended).
