Lin was removed from Wednesday's game against the Jazz with a right ankle sprain, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Lin scored four points with two rebounds and one assist in 17 minutes before he was forced to leave. Brian Roberts is the next guard up in the rotation in Lin's absence, and Aaron Harrison could get some rare run if Lin is forced to miss substantial time. The severity of the sprain is unknown thus far, so we'll have to wait for further evaluation before we can pinpoint a return date with any certainty.
