Another big name in professional sports suffered a serious injury Wednesday night.

Brooklyn Nets guard Jeremy Lin suffered a patellar tendon rupture in the fourth quarter of the Nets’ season opener against the Indiana Pacers and will miss rest of season, the team announced Thursday.

Lin jumped to the rim and landed awkwardly on the baseline.

Close up video from the game shows Lin clutching his right knee in apparent pain and appearing to say, “I’m done” repeatedly.

Lin was helped off the court, but limped off unassisted.
