Jeremy Lin returns for Nets vs. Suns

Major tank news.

NBA: Detroit Pistons at Brooklyn Nets Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Fans of the Phoenix tank efforts would like to see the Brooklyn Nets take down the Suns when the two meet at the Barclays Center tonight. Those odds are getting better when the news that Jeremy Lin will be suiting up tonight.

Lin suffered an ankle injury in Brooklyn’s loss to the Dallas Mavericks on March 19th. He missed Tuesday’s game against the Detroit Pistons.

The veteran guard has been plagued with injuries all season. He’s appeared in just 25 games in 2016-17, the fewest since his rookie season.

In 23 minutes per game this season, Lin is averaging 13.7 points, his highest per game average since Linsanity invaded New York and captured the imaginations of a nation.

Phoenix and Brooklyn tip off at 4:30pm PT. Pass the time with this game preview. You won’t regret it.
