Brandon Rush tore his ACL, according to agent Mark Bartelstein. "It's devastating, but we'll put a plan together and get him back to 100%"— Rusty Simmons (@Rusty_SFChron) November 3, 2012
I was actually just walking into Oracle Arena last night when Brandon Rush went down with his knee injury and as I was cringing, my heart sank because you knew this was going to lead to devastating news for him and the team.
I don't care what team a player plays for, you never want to see something like that happen. And it's just especially unfortunate in Rush's case because he had really turned a corner in his career last season and was going to be a major part of whatever success the Warriors hoped to experience this season.
All we can do now is wish him the best in his recovery and hope that he does indeed get back to 100% not only for our sakes as Warriors fans but for his as someone who had really begun to establish himself as a major contributor in the league.
