NEW YORK (AP) — The Brooklyn Nets say Jeremy Lin has a strained left hamstring and will miss at least two weeks.

Lin was hurt Wednesday while helping the Nets to a 109-101 victory over the Detroit Pistons. The Nets announced the point guard’s status on Thursday.

Lin will miss Friday’s home game against the Charlotte Hornets. He spent last season as a backup to Kemba Walker in Charlotte before signing with the Nets in July.

He is averaging 15 points and 6.2 assists through five games.
