Knicks' Lin out for first round

The SportsXchange

New York guard Jeremy Lin won't play in the first-round series against the Miami Heat, even if the Knicks avoid elimination Wednesday, interim head coach Mike Woodson told reporters.

The Knicks are already without guards Baron Davis and Iman Shumpert, but hoped Lin would be able to return from April 2 surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee.

"Speaking with medical and Jeremy, he will not play in this series," Woodson said after practice.
