Houston Rockets guard Jeremy Lin was unable to play in the second half of the team's Game 2 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder after sustaining a chest injury. Lin underwent an MRI yesterday that produced a diagnosis of a bruised chest, and the Rockets are considering him day-to-day, according to Jonathan Feigen of The Houston Chronicle.Lin MRI confirmed diagnosis. He's day to day with bruised chest.— Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) April 25, 2013 The spasms in Lin's chest and much of the pain that caused him to miss the second half of Game 2 have subsided, causing him to be cautiously optimistic that he'll be able to return for Saturday's matchup with the Thunder.While he's optimistic, Lin isn't making any promises, as he told reporters that he's learned his lesson from making guarantees. He was referring to last season with the New York Knicks when he expected to return from a knee injury that ultimately sidelined him through the playoffs.Lin did say that everything feels a lot better now. He'll continue working on the chest, as he hopes to increase his range of motion. He'll also look to add jumping today and see how his body responds. It sounds like he'll at least attempt to go on Saturday, as it's a pivotal game for the Rockets.Follow @hoopsinjurynews
