OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Houston Rockets say an MRI confirmed Thursday that Jeremy Lin has a bruised chest, leaving his status is day-to-day leading up to Game 3 against Oklahoma City on Saturday night.
Lin was sidelined for the second half of the Rockets' 105-102 playoff loss in Oklahoma City on Wednesday night because of the injury.
Coach Kevin McHale says Lin ``is a tough kid, so for him not to play, especially in a big game like that, it had to really be bothering him quite a bit.''
For the Thunder, All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook did not participate in drill work during the final portion of practice Thursday that was open to the media. Coach Scott Brooks says Westbrook, who has never missed a game in his NBA career, will be fine for Game 3.
