It always makes me curious why when players unintentionally (badly) injure other players on the opposing team, they don't apologize. I know the game is supposed to be really competitive and what not. I'm not saying they should kneel down next to them and be like "oh are you alright? i'm so sorry i didn't mean to do it." A simple "sorry" would do. Anyway, maybe that's just me.

Too bad for him and the Wolve's playoff chances. He has certainly surprised some people with how well he's done considering it's his first year in the NBA. Hopefully he makes a 100% recovery and be back ready for the next season's opener later this year.

And my dreams come true! Kid isn't as good as advertised. Place him on a better team that doesn't have like 2 total good players and his numbers decrease all across the board. That high waiver spot I used on Luke Ridnour for my fantasy league looks better every day!

SADLY, I am pissed about this, WE NEED MINNY TO WIN, the more they win the worse that draft pick is and the worse the pick the better that CP3 trade works for us. At this point we could be looking at New Orleans getting the 11-14th pick in the draft ( its a deep draft but still, it had top 5 potential and any of the top 5 guys could go #1 either last year, this year or next year ), Gordon may complain so much and go on strike the Hornets have to sign and trade him, or let him go, Kaman is surely gone at year's end either back home to Michigan or to a playoff team, and Aminu is just crap awful. If CP3 for some crap reason turns out to be a 2 year rental, probably better than a 2 game rental the Hornets may only get out of Eric Gordon haha.

He'll recover fully and be back next year to kick some butts I'd imagine. Do not be at ALL surprised if Nash retires and spends time working with Rubio, he's a big fan and that's a big compliment.

very unfortunate news. hope he comes back stronger than ever.

but now's the time for blake to take over the PF top spot (klove's production should take a tumble and aldridge's blazers are in a downward spiral)

Love is still going to go nuts because the T-Wolves are crap awful outside of Rubio and Love. Love played without Rubio last year and went ballistic. I'd expect his numbers to remain the same.

Remember, Luke Ridnour is now the starting PG rather than the starting SG. Ridnour is no slouch at PG over his career.
