NBA rising star Jeremy Lin ‘Linsanity’ announced on Saturday, March 31, 2012 via a press conference that he may not be able to play for about 6 weeks after suffering from a knee injury, which means he may be out for the remaining games of the NBA 2011-12 season.

As featured at NBA that night, Jeremy Lin told reporters he noticed the injury about a week ago and it did to have gotten worst by Saturday, which he will undergo surgery in New York next week.

“I can’t really do much, can’t really cut or jump, so it’s pretty clear I can’t help the team unless I get it fixed right now,” Lin said before his team New York Knicks played against Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday.

“It’s disappointing for me, it’s hard to watch the games and I think I’d want to be out there obviously more than anything right now.” Lin added, who has already missed three straight games, with the last one against the Atlanta Hawks on Friday.

“But hopefully, it’s a six-week rehab process but I tend to heal fast, so hopefully I can come back as soon as possible and still contribute this season hopefully.” The 23-year old New York Knicks star player explained further.

Earlier that afternoon before Jeremy Lin spoke to the media, New York Knicks (@nyknicks) tweeted about his status, “Jeremy Lin will be out approx 6 weeks after an MRI revealed small chronic meniscus tear”.
