Ricky Rubio, Rudy Fernandez Injured While Playing for Spain

by August 24, 2011

FIBA Europe reports that the Spanish national hoops team had both Rubio and Fernandez get dinged up during EuroBasket play: “Spain brushed aside Slovenia for the second night in a row on Sunday, cruising to a 79-57 victory in Granada. Pau Gasol had 19 points for Spain, who played without Ricky Rubio, with the point guard having sprained his ankle in the first meeting with Slovenia on Saturday in Malaga. Rubio will be evaluated in the coming days. Spain also lost another player to injury on Sunday when Rudy Fernandez hurt his right arm and didn’t play at all in the second half.”
