Fiba.com reports: Spain’s DKV Joventut star Ricky Rubio will miss the first several games of his team’s Euroleague and ACB campaigns after having surgery on his right wrist. The point guard got hurt during the gold medal game at the Olympics on August 24 when the United States beat Spain and he suffered a recurrence of the injury in the pre-season.

InsideHoops.com editor says: Rubio is expected to be one of the top picks in whatever NBA draft he declares eligibility in. He’ll quite possibly go first overall, but he’s not an absolute lock to do that.
