Friday night the Minnesota Timberwolves lost to the Los Angeles Lakers. They lost something more than a game.
The Pioneer Press reported that point guard Ricky Rubio tore his ACL. This means his rookie season is over.
The Timberwolves lost their first game in Rubio's absence Saturday. The New Orleans Hornets. "He will be missed. He is a winner and makes winning plays," teammate Kevin Love said. The Timberwolves have had a resurgence this season after many down years in comparison to the rest of the league.
ESPN reported that Ricky Rubio, who is Spanish, will miss the Olympics in London this summer.
