Rockets' Lin exits early
Oklahoma City, OK (Sports Network) - Houston Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin exited Game 2 of the Western Conference quarterfinals against the Oklahoma City Thunder due to a muscle contusion in his right chest.
Lin suffered the injury early in the third quarter and went to the locker room to have it checked out. His return is questionable.
Lin is playing in his first playoff series after signing with the Rockets last offseason. He averaged 13.4 points and 6.1 assists during the regular season, but struggled with four points and four assists in Houston's Game 1 loss on Sunday.
At the time of his injury Wednesday, Lin had logged seven points, three assists and four rebounds.
