Rockets' Jeremy Lin out two weeks with knee sprain
The Rockets will be without Jeremy Lin for a few games as he recovers from a knee sprain.
Lin suffered the injury Wednesday against the Hawks.
Without Lin, the Rockets will have to look to replace his production off the bench, where he has begun to excel in his role. Patrick Beverley has remained the starter, but with Lin out he could see heavier minutes, or the Rockets could give minutes to Aaron Brooks, who has been mostly unused this season, except when called upon for injury replacement.
Lin, 25, is averaging 15.3 points and 4.5 assists in 16 games this season.
