Is Ridnour not capable?

Btw, Ramon Sessions, anyone? A return to glory?

Ridnour is great.

But us Wolves fans want a Ricky Rubio that is developing at an NBA level and speed for the future, right now.

Well, yeah... Of course. I get that.

I was just responding to the post that insinuated that, if the worst news becomes a reality, you guys actually have to go after another PG in order to make a push for the playoffs. I don't think that is entirely necessary.

Ridnour is decent, but he doesn't run the offense like Rubio can. There's also the problem of Barea being out. I actually think Sessions would be a great option for them, ironic considering that they traded him.

Realistically, and this is as a huge Rubio homer, I don't think our chances are hampered too much.

I don't want us to go get a 1-guard. We should get a combo-guard that can score and that's that. I'm confident with letting a guy like Barea or Ridnour take over at the 1 for the remainder of the season just because Rubio wasn't playing that amazing recently.

The worst thing about all of this is that he loses out on a half-NBA season to get better. This kids court vision is absolutely insane and the fact that he's going to miss significant playing time scares the hell out of me.

Rubio being out doesn't impact the Wolves immediately, but it will down the line.

Maybe it's just a sprain. His knee buckled but it didn't turn terribly like a typical ACL tear. Tough break for the T-Wolves.

Same type of injury happened to a local player. 6'8" 230 pound center for my wife's old high school. He didn't get any contact, he just tried to stop from going out of bounds kind of like how Rubio tried to stop to change direction and he just blew his ACL out with a normal basketball move. Missed the rest of the season last year. This year they're 1 game away from state.

Wishing him a speedy recovery. It's such a joy to watch a flashy pass first point guard!

It's a terrible timing for the Wolves but it's not like the injury will linger Rubio for the rest of his career. Even if it does he should do fine as his skillset doesn't rely on athleticism as much.

AD on the other hand is a running back. A lot of history with RBs production decrease after a knee injury. I would be hell of a lot more worried for AD than Rubio if I were you. Don't be surprised if he doesn't ever produce the same type of numbers again.

True. Peterson's injury was horrible.

I just rather get every year out of Rubio's rookie contract...

Rubio is a good kid, but why did he have to anger Godbe?
