Houston point guard Jeremy Lin is listed as day to day with a bruised right chest muscle he suffered in a Game 2 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Lin was injured in the first half of the 105-102 loss on Wednesday night and didn't return in the second half.

He underwent an MRI on Thursday which did not reveal any damage beyond the bruise right chest muscle.

The Rockets host Game 3 on Saturday night down 2-0 in the Western Conference first-round series.

Teammate Chandler Parsons expects Lin to be ready for the game, saying he doesn't "see Jeremy not playing. He's a tough kid and he obviously wants to play."
