Jeremy Lin apologizes for missing Steelers game for first time

Jeremy Lin apologizes for missing his first game for the Kaohsiung Steelers since joining the team in February.

According to Focus Taiwan, Lin missed a game on Friday due to illness. The team said he developed a fever and became dehydrated a few days before the game.

“I can only lie down here. I have no idea when I will be able to recover, and I have no idea whether I will be able to play the game tomorrow,” Lin said, according to Focus Taiwan. “But it’s for sure that I can’t play tonight. I know it’s a bit troublesome, so I’m very, very sorry,” Lin said in the video while promising to return as soon as possible.”

Lin signed for the team back in January. He made his debut on February 12 and lead the team to victory, scoring 21 points with a league-best 13 assists.

The former NBA star said he wants to focus on helping young players in Taiwan. He continues to be an inspiration to players back in the United States. According to Lakers Daily, Lakers guard Malik Beasley recently wore a pair of Lin’s signature shoes last Friday.
