Ricky Rubio with Torn ACL, Out for the season

As Minnesota phenom Ricky Rubio goes for MRI on injured knee Saturday, Wolves fear a torn ACL

It's official, he's done. He might miss the Olympics too.

Quote:

Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio’s compelling rookie season is over, ended by a torn anterior-cruciate knee ligament that ends his season, a team source said this afternoon.

Just when the franchise finally had reversed four long, losing seasons by surpassing .500 to become a playoff contender for the first time since 2004, Rubio was injured late in Friday’s home loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Rehabilitation time for such an injury usually is six to nine months, which means Rubio also likely will miss playing for Spain in the London Summer Olympics that begin in July.

That is awful. Hopefully it will only be a sprain. If you are an NBA fan, this is bad news... I don't care who your team is.
