Yeah, I just read that.

Minnesota fans can't win... They finally have a season filled with optimism and potential and now this... I just hope it turns out to be less severe than what is being reported. If it is a torn ACL, you are talking about a potentially career-altering injury.

FUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCC

I feel for you Wolves fans... I truly do. Hopefully, the team is talented enough to endure this kind of injury and continue on to make a playoff run... which it may be.

Sucks for Rubio. At least the injury won't take away from his passing skills. He should come back better than ever and maybe he can work on his shot while he is immobilized.

David West tore his ACL March 25th last year, and was ready to go at the start of this season. Ricky is much younger than him, I doubt he would miss even 2 months of next season.

Baron Davis tore his ACL his freshmen year in College, and was still explosive after he recovered, it's not the career death sentence it used to be.

I am quite hopefully it is not the ACL. I have a hard time deciphering that video. I can't quite tell if the injury occurred due to the lockup of his leg or from the contact with Bryant. Traditionally, one will not suffer an ACL injury from contact, but it does sort of appear that his leg hitched prior to hitting Bryant.

I must be honest, I was not too pumped about Rubio's arrival prior to this season. There was so much talk, hype, anti-hype, what-have-you, that I was just tired of the idea of him. However, I've very much enjoyed what he's done here with the Timberwolves thus far. I hope he's alright. If he's not, I wish him the speediest of recoveries.

It looks pretty bad here:




No contact when it first buckled.

Certainly not... The medical profession has made incredible strides in being able to repair what used to be a career-ending injury. However, there are still varying degrees of ACL tears and it also depends upon whether or not the guy has a body that responds well/quickly to treatment and rehab.

There are a lot of variables. It is just a sad situation if it is a tear. The best case scenario still probably includes missing time at the beginning of next season.

Just too many variables involved with torn acl.

Really depends on how much damage there is inside (catilage, meniscus).

The biggest blow though is to the psyche. I hope he rebounds very well.

The more I watch that gif, the more my stomach turns. It just doesn't look good.

I'm hoping for the best, but expecting the worst.
