Jeremy Lin Says He's Lost Weight, Feeling Great

Rockets guard Jeremy Lin says he's lost weight, and he's feeling great, according to Houston Chronicle reporter Jonathan Feigen.

Lin spent his offseason rehabilitating a torn meniscus in his left knee that required surgery in March after signing a free agent contract with Houston.

Lin averaged 14.6 points, 6.2 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 1.6 steals in 26.9 minutes a game for the Knicks last season, before signing a restricted free agency deal with Houston this offseason. He was expected to re-sign with the Knicks, but they declined to match Houston's three-year, $25 million offer sheet.

He made 35 appearances before undergoing the arthroscopic surgery that ended his season. In the time he played, he became a sensation, and briefly revitalized the Knicks, who were without all-star forward Carmelo Anthony at the time.

The Rockets preseason schedule gets underway against the defending Western Conference champion Oklahoma City on Oct. 10 in Hidalgo, Texas.

Their regular season opener takes place Oct. 31 in Detroit against the Pistons.
