Jeremy Lin is playing in Game 3 of the playoff series against the Thunder.

Kevin McHale announced about an hour before gametime that Lin had finished with pregame shooting and thought he was good enough to give it a shot.

Lin suffered a bruised right chest muscle during the first half of Wednesday's Game Two when he and Thabo Sefolosha collided. Lin would not return for the second half. He didn't practice Friday and didn't take part in Saturday shootaround, only hoisting 2-3 shots up afterwards.

As for Greg Smith, McHale said it's still a wait-and-see. In other words, Smith is still a game-time decision with his stomach distress that left him ill.
