Houston Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin will miss at least two weeks with a Grade 1 right knee sprain and contusion, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.
Lin has had an excellent start to the season for Houston, averaging 15.3 points and 4.5 assists while shooting 50.3 percent overall and 39.0 percent from three. He has spent time as a starter and as a reserve this season, but he has played similar minutes in both roles.
Lin's injury opens up more playing time for Aaron Brooks and Francisco Garcia. Both Brooks and Garcia had big games in the win over Atlanta, with each player scoring 21 points and the duo combining to shoot 16-of-26 overall and 7-of-12 from three.
Lin's knee will be re-evaluated in two weeks to see if he can return to action.
