Jeremy Lin has been in seemingly constant contact with his fans since undergoing knee surgery Monday, sending out a photo of himself recovering in his hospital bed (above) on Twitter and participating in a lengthy Q&A session on his Facebook page after he returned home that night.
The photo itself may not be the most uplifting -- who wants to see their hero hooked up to an IV? -- but the spirit behind it certainly was: “Praise God for a successful surgery…road to recovery! Lets goo. Much love to the fans for your support and kind words," the New York Knicks star point guard tweeted.
According to the Knicks, the surgery on a chronic small meniscal tear in Lin's left knee was successful. He's expected to be out for about six weeks, although he wrote during the Facebook Q&A: "i hope ill be back for the playoffs! its killin me to watch the team without being able to play but i need to make sure my knee is 100% before i get back on the court so we will wait and see"
