Houston Rockets guard Jeremy Lin has a bruised right chest muscle, but no structural damage

was found during tests Thursday.

Lin was injured in the first half of Game 2 in the best-of-seven first-round NBA playoff series on Wednesday night against Oklahoma City. He did not play in the second half of the Rockets' 105-102 loss because of the pain.

The Rockets listed Lin as day to day after he underwent an MRI on Thursday. He did not practice with the team during an off day in the series, which resumes Saturday in Houston with Game 3. Houston trails 2-0 after losses in Oklahoma City.

Lin is hoping to be able to play, saying he's working on range of motion. The spasms that he was feeling in his chest Wednesday night are gone.

"I'm not going to make any promises or anything because I just don't know," Lin said. "We'll see how it feels every day and tomorrow we'll re-evaluate it."

Lin played in all 82 games during the regular season and averaged 13.4 points and 6.1 assists per game.
