As expected, Rockets guard Jeremy Lin went through practice on Tuesday and he said he will play against Portland on Thursday.

"I feel good. I went through practice today," Lin said. "Feeling good right now, no limitations.

"I'll be back (Thursday). I played today and everything's fine. I'm full go, maybe in terms of a little conditioning."

He then added jokingly, "Maybe not jumping that high off that right foot, but I never jumped that high on the right foot anyway."

Lin is trying to return to the lineup after suffering a grade-knee sprain on Nov. 27 against Atlanta.

Tuesday was Lin's first full practice since the injury.
