Jeremy Lin says he'll back for Thursday's game

The Rockets will face the red-hot Portland Trailblazers

An update on the Jeremy Lin injury situation... Your favorite Houston Rockets guard was a full participant in Tuesday's practice, engaging in his first full-contact workout since suffering a right knee sprain nearly two weeks ago. The outlook is good. Jeremy says he's pretty much ready to return to action when the Rockets take on the Portland Trailblazers on Thursday night:

Lin made it through the 75-minute session with no issues and afterward declared himself ready to return when the Rockets take on the Western Conference leading Portland Trailblazers in a primetime showdown Thursday night.

"I feel good, no limitations." Lin said following Tuesday's practice session. "I'll be back (for Thursday's game).

"I'm full go. (I might need) a little conditioning, or maybe I'm not jumping as high off of that right foot, but I never really jumped that high off the right foot, anyway."
Before getting sidelined, Jeremy really seemed to be finding his groove, playing at a high level and putting up some great numbers. Let's hope the injury was just a minor setback and it's a quick return to form.
