Jeremy Lin and the Brooklyn Nets agreed to a three year contract this offseason, but the start of this season hasn’t exactly started the way the two sides imagined.

Lin hasn’t played since Nov. 2 when he and the Nets took on the Detroit Pistons at home in a 109-101 victory. The Nets have been dreadful without the 28-year-old point guard posting a 2-9 record without him including a current seven game losing streak. The Nets now have the worst record in the Eastern Conference at 4-12, tied with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Lin will in fact miss his 12th consecutive game according to reports this Tuesday against the Los Angeles Clippers. Lin has not yet recovered from a strained hamstring injury, and he’s not taking any chances. There is no exact timetable for Lin’s return, but the team has said that he will “miss an undetermined amount of time.” Nets Head Coach Kenny Atkinson has been asked constantly about Lin’s status, but he has not given any indication about when we could see the young point guard return.

Although no exact timetable or return date has been given for Lin, Newsday has reported that Lin has been “making strides” referring to his rehab process. It has also been learned that Lin has not yet returned to full practice, meaning his return more than likely is not imminent.

Lin is the only player on the Nets this season averaging more than three assists per game, which has created a huge concern at the point guard position.
