Ricky Rubio Injury: Timberwolves Star Will Undergo ACL Surgery On March 21

Minnesota Timerwolves guard Ricky Rubio will have surgery to repair the torn ACL in his left knee. According to the Timberwolves public relations staff, Rubio will have that surgery on March 21.

The Timberwolves lost Rubio earlier in the month, against the Los Angeles Lakers on March 9. You can see a video of Rubio's injury here.

Losing Rubio really threw the team off track. They have lost three of four games, including the one were Rubio suffered his injury. He was averaging 10.6 points, 8.2 assists and 2.2 steals per game at the time of his injury, exceeding expectations for transitioning to the NBA. The Timberwolves were in the midst of swoon as fans embraced the up-and-coming team and its young star from Spain.
