Kareem Rush’s Season Comes to an End

Rough night for the Clippers in New Orleans last night, on multiple fronts: “An already subdued Clippers locker room — quieted after a 110-102 loss to the Hornets on Tuesday night at New Orleans Arena — became even more downcast when Kareem Rush arrived on crutches, moving slowly to his spot near the corner. There were a couple of murmurs in the room and finally one of his teammates asked, ‘You OK?’ Said Rush: ‘No.’ Rush then told his teammates that he had a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, which puts him out for the rest of the season. Conclusive word came less than an hour later when the MRI test result came in and confirmed what Rush feared and had told the other players.”

    I feel sort of bad. I LIKE Kareem Rush, and I have no idea why. I think the guy is a solid bench player who gets overlooked despite past success, and he keeps getting hurt. Poor dude.

    i saw the injury live on tv. dang. he was coming off his best game as a clip after not really playing the entire season. it was like dunleavy went, “oh yeah kareem rush is on my team i forgot.”

    tough break. i hope he’s not out the NBA.

    Crazy, his older brother JaRon (played at UCLA) and younger brother Brandon (Indiana Pacers) have done the same thing. Genetics.

    His career may be over… He would be 31 when he would make an attempt at a comeback. I wish him the best!
