Lin starts for Knicks, Davis suffers setback
NEW YORK (AP) — Jeremy Lin was the starting point guard for the Knicks on Monday against Utah, while the player expected to inherit the position had a recent medical setback.
Baron Davis revealed that he stopped his workouts because of an infection in his right elbow. Davis, who hasn't played this season because of herniated disk in his back, hasn't practiced since that happened on Jan. 26 in Miami and it's unknown when he will return.
Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni said it would probably be a week or 10 days from when Davis resumed practicing to when he could play in games.
In the meantime, the Knicks hope Lin can be their answer. The Harvard product scored a career-high 25 points Saturday in a victory over New Jersey.
