Jeremy Lin is headed back to the NBA's Warriors this week


Palo Alto High graduate Jeremy Lin's stay in the NBA Development League is over for the time being. After playing just just four games with the Reno Bighorns, Lin will be returning to the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday in time for the team's game against host New Orleans.

Lin reportedly is being recalled from the Bighorns to replace Acie Law, who has an injured wrist.

"I did talk to Jeremy, but he doesn't know how long he'll be up," said Peter Diepenbrock, who coached Lin in high school and now is the head men's basketball coach at Canada College. "He did very well in D-League. (Warriors') General Manager Larry Riley went to watch him in one of those games when he played very well."

Lin last week was sent down to Reno, the Warriors' affiliate in the Development League. Since making his debut on Dec. 28 with 10 points, Lin has been solid while starting two of four games.

Lin is averaging 18 points, four rebounds and 2.8 assists in those four outings. His best statistical game came Sunday in a 110-103 loss to Idaho, where Lin scored 26 points in 37 minutes with four rebounds, five assists and two steals.

On Saturday, he scored 16 points in 30 minutes with four rebounds, three assists and two blocks.

While Lin was not the team scoring leader in any one game, he did have the highest scoring average during his brief stay.

The Warriors are able to recall a player as many times as they want from the NBA Development League, but they can only officially assign a player to the D-League three times in one season. Lin has been assigned this one time but could end up going back to the Bighorns if Law is able to play.

The Dubs need Lin to fill in for Acie Law while he gets his hand looked at... but Acie is on the floor right now, so who knows?

Go Dubs!!
