Brandon Rush Out For the Season With a Torn ACL

Some sad news out of the Warriors organization this weekend, as the San Jose Mercury News reports Brandon Rush will miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL: “Brandon Rush is out for the rest of the 2012-13 season with a torn left anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), the Warriors announced. Saturday’s MRI confirmed what many already suspected after Rush injured his left knee in the first quarter of Friday’s 104-94 loss to Memphis. Members of the organization described Rush as devastated and distraught. But it seems the fifth-year swingman is resolved to make a return. ’Been thru this before. Just gonna make me an all-around better player,’ Rush posted on Twitter. Surgery is not yet scheduled but a Warriors official said Rush is expected to make a full recovery. He tore his right ACL in 2007 while playing for the University of Kansas.”

    Easily one of my personal top 5 players in the league that I love watching play. I just love his all around game and effort.
