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.
I expect Jeremy Lin to return for Game 5. His camp is optimistic that he'll be able to play in Miami.— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) May 6, 2012
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).
