Jeremy Lin is set to spend some more time on the sidelines after he re-injured his left hamstring on Monday.
The Brooklyn Nets star sustained the injury in the third quarter of his side’s 120-118 win over the Charlotte Hornets and it has been confirmed that it is the same problem he suffered on November 2 that led to him missing 17 games.
The incident occurred after Lin landed awkwardly after he was fouled while driving to the basket. Despite this, he stayed in the game and actually helped the Nets take a slim lead. But, his time on the court came to an end after he missed a reverse lay-up and walked straight to the bench, saying that he needed to be substituted off.

Lin, who ended the game with 17 points, four assists and two steals against his former team, is averaging 13.6 points, 3.5 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 1.3 steals per game this season.
