Breaking News: Ricky Rubio Out For Season With Torn ACL

By 03.10.12

Ricky Rubio knee injury

This sucks. At the end of last night’s T-Wolves/Lakers game, Ricky Rubio ran over to trap Kobe Bryant – when he got there, his knee buckled and Ricky went down in a heap [Watch the video after the jump]. [Watch Rubio’s best passing highlights here]

After scheduling an MRI for earlier today, Minnesota’s worst fears have become a reality as Rubio has been diagnosed with a torn ACL. His season is officially over and he is now looking at surgery and a solid 6-9 months of recovery time, that will almost definitely mean that he won’t be playing for Spain in the Olympics.

Just crappy all the way around for the basketball world in general. Here’s video of the injury:
