Kareem Rush’s Season Comes to an End

by November 18, 2009

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.”
