T’Wolves Fear Rubio has Torn ACL;Will Have MRI Tomorrow
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, Minnesota fears that rookie and international sensation Ricky Rubio may have torn his ACL during tonight’s contest with the Lakers.
This would obviously be a crushing blow to the young T’Wolves, as Rubio, along with Kevin Love, have been the catalyst to this young, overachieving team. Minnesota has quietly been in the playoff hunt all season, but this would undoubtedly hinder their chances of a playoff run. Rubio has an MRI scheduled for the morning, but anytime torn ACL’s are in play, it is a scary thought.
Rubio has been much better than many, including I, have expected. He has a unique eye for the game, and reminds me of a young Jason Kidd the more I see him play. Hopefully, this is just a minor injury, but a torn ACL would not only end his, and presumably the Timberwolves season, but it would also involve a long recovery road and extensive rehabilitation.
I guess we will have to wait until morning to see. Stay tuned.
