The whole "85%" issue was not saying Lin was 85% healthy to play (and thus physically able to play and probably should have played). He said he was 85% to being at the physical threshold of being able to play (meaning he was still in too much pain to suit up). Whenever he moved, he had pain and he couldn't even touch the rim. Lin has refuted this 85% thing a few times but some people keep saying, "He was healthy and was 85% to being perfect, near 100% health" and that's not what happened.
