OKLAHOMA CITY -- Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin has come out of Game 2 of Houston's playoff series against Oklahoma City because of a muscle contusion in his chest.

Lin was wincing as a trainer worked on his right shoulder near half-court during halftime. Lin lined up as though he was going to continue playing, but then pulled himself out of the game just before play was set to resume.

Lin went to the locker room and was replaced by Carlos Delfino.

The Rockets said Lin's return was questionable.
