NEW YORK (AP) The Brooklyn Nets say Jeremy Lin has had surgery repair a ruptured patella tendon in his right knee and will miss the remainder of the season.

The procedure was performed Friday morning at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. The team says the surgery was successful and Lin is expected to make a full recovery.

Lin was hurt Wednesday during the Nets' first game of the season when he landed hard after a drive to the basket in the fourth quarter of a 140-131 loss to Indiana.
