While Jeremy Lin will be more deliberate and safer in his movements and landings, he has no plans to change his attacking style. Lin ruptured his patella tendon on opening night in October. "I am not going to change the bread and butter of who I am, which is downhill, attacking, dynamic playmaking. I will always be that player," Lin said. "Maybe the type of risks ... I don't know, I never really saw them as risks, but what we will see is probably a similar style but in a safer way. I will still be in the paint heavy, but I won't be landing on my legs the same way, getting off-balanced unless obviously I am forced to, but the landing, taking contact, being able to engage certain muscles before contact, before I take off, all those things are really, really important ... A lot of other muscles will be absorbing impact that maybe joints shouldn't be." Lin has been rehabbing in Vancouver.
