Jeremy Lin just cannot catch a break after the Brooklyn Nets point guard was injured again on Monday night. Lin left in the third quarter of their 120-118 win over the Charlotte Hornets at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Lin, who signed with Nets last summer, has been slowed down by injuries this season. After recovering from a strained left hamstring, the former Harvard University standout hurt the same hamstring against Charlotte. He missed 17 games earlier in the season before returning to action on Dec. 14 against the Houston Rockets, ESPN reported.

Luckily for the Nets, Lin made an impact before he exited in the third quarter. The veteran playmaker scored 17 points on 6-for-11 shooting, including two three-pointers, in 22 minutes of action. Lin also dished out four assists and tallied two steals for the Nets.

Without Lin, the Nets rallied to score a come-from-behind victory capped by a buzzer-beater from Randy Foye. Down by one with 2.3 seconds left to play in the game, Foye knocked down a three-pointer, helping the Nets snap a five-game skid. After the match, Foye cannot help but get frustrated after their starting point guard went down again.

"It's frustrating," Foye said via NBA.com. "Watching a guy work so hard to get back, just respect, just leadership every single day. On the court, off the court. For him to go out again with the same thing is like, c'mon man."

Bojan Bogdanovic paced the Nets with 26 points on top of four rebounds and two assists. Sean Kilpatrick posted 23 points to go along with five rebounds and four assists, while starting center Brook Lopez posted 21 points, five rebounds and five dimes for the 8-22 Nets.

It remains to be seen whether or not the injury will force Lin to miss games again. The Nets will visit the Chicago Bulls at the United Center on Wednesday night before facing the Washington Wizards on Friday.
