Knicks’ Lin improving

 

New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin said Sunday he feels “pretty good” after knee surgery but doesn’t think he could make it back for the first round of the playoffs. “I think unless something goes really well, I wouldn’t get there,” Lin said before the Knicks beat the Chicago Bulls 100-99 in overtime on Sunday. Lin had surgery Monday to repair torn cartilage in his left knee. The Knicks have said the expected recovery time is about six weeks. The playoffs begin April 28. The Knicks, also playing without the injured Amare Stoudemire, went into Sunday’s game holding the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference. Lin won’t rule out a return if the Knicks can advance in the postseason. “It depends on how far and how long it goes,” Lin said. – Associated Press
