Neither rain, nor snow, nor gloom of a sprained ankle will keep Jeremy Lin from his appointed round Tuesday against Golden State.

Jeremy Lin proclaimed himself "good to go" to play Tuesday night against the Warriors.

Lin rolled his left ankle during the final minutes of practice Monday and his status for the Warriors game was listed as a ‘game-time decision.’ He's rolled his ankle multiple times this season, but has played through the pain.

"It's annoying," Lin said. "But it happens. It happens during the season. Everybody's going to twist an ankle here and there. So it's nothing serious."

And it won't keep him from playing against the team that gave him that first NBA shot, the Warriors.

"I'm very thankful," Lin said. "I had some great times with them. It was more of a learning process, improvement process during my first year, but they gave me my first shot and I wouldn't be here today if I wasn't able to play my first year with the Warriors."
