NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Knicks have claimed guard Jeremy Lin off waivers.

The Knicks are short-handed in the backcourt. Iman Shumpert could miss four weeks with a knee injury, Baron Davis might still be weeks away because of his bulging back disc and Mike Bibby missed the opener with a sore lower back.

The 6-foot-3 Lin was released by the Houston Rockets on Sunday to make room for Samuel Dalembert.

Lin averaged 2.6 points and 1.4 assists in 29 games with Golden State last season, but the Warriors waived him this month. The Rockets claimed him and then waived him again.

Lin played four years at Harvard, where he averaged 12.9 points.
