NEW YORK (AP) - Jeremy Lin is missing the Brooklyn Nets’ game against the Los Angeles Lakers because of lower back tightness.

Lin had just returned from a 17-game absence with a strained left hamstring. Coach Kenny Atkinson says the point guard’s back tightened up Wednesday morning and Lin was ruled out shortly before the game.

Rookie Isaiah Whitehead started at point guard for the Nets.
