Coming from a report by the Washington Post, Golden State Warriors forward Brandon Rush will miss the entire season after playing two regular season games. Rush went in for an MRI and the results from that revealed that he has a torn ACL in his left knee. From this point, he will get surgery and will not return until the 2013-2014 NBA season. Rush’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, said:
He’s not doing great. He’s devastated as you can imagine. It’s a traumatic thing to go through for anybody. We’re going to figure it out and work with the Warriors and come up with a great plan to get him back. But for the moment, it’s devastating with surgery and rehab ahead of you.
This could truly hurt the Warriors. He helps relieve some of the offensive load with his ability to shoot and just play overall. Missing an entire season has to be heartbreaking. The rehab process is going to be grueling. All Brandon Rush can do now is be hopeful and be strong and come back next season and tear up the stats sheet. Maybe he can hit up Derrick Rose who also has to sit out almost an entire season with a knee injury. Perhaps the both of them can contact Kobe Bryant and see how the German knee procedure can help.
