Brooklyn Nets point guard Jeremy Lin left their game against the Indiana Pacers early with an apparent knee injury. 

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Jeremy Lin would undergo an evaluation on his right knee on Thursday after he landed awkwardly on a drive to the basket. Woj added that there is a “tremendous concern” with the injury.

After Lin went up for his layup attempt, he sat beside the stanchion holding his right knee. A couple of seconds later, he grimaced and shouted “I’m done. I’m done” before coming to tears, falling on his side and pounding on the hardwood. Members of the organization had to help him off the floor. Lin then limped to the locker room.

Brooklyn lost to Indiana 140-131 despite Lin pouring in 18 points in 25 minutes. D’Angelo order tramadol from china Russell added in 30 of his own.

This season is the 29-year-old’s second with the Nets and injuries are nothing new to him. Last year, the Harvard grad suited up for just 36 games after dealing with a nagging hamstring issue. He averaged 14.5 points and 5.1 assists. Brooklyn had a miserable campaign and Lin’s injuries attributed to it; they finished a league-worst 20-62.

After acquiring Russell, DeMarre Carroll and Allen Crabbe in the offseason, along with developing Caris LeVert, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Sean Kilpatrick, the Nets are better equipped to weather the storm if Lin is out for an extended period. Hopefully, that doesn’t happen, but the injury gods haven’t been too kind to start the 2017-18 season.
