The Minnesota Timberwolves lost on Friday night to the Los Angeles Lakers, but it wasn't a terrible one considering Kevin Love was held out due to a back injury. The worst part of the game, instead, came in the fourth quarter when a Ricky Rubio injury forced the Wolves point guard out of action with 16 seconds left to play.
There wasn't any sort of initial diagnosis of course, but the word that did come out onFriday night weren't especially promising.
Don't know if there's anything to read into this but...Adelman made a rare trip into training room postgame, emerged quickly looking glum— Jerry Zgoda(@JerryZgoda) March 10, 2012
And then, a bit later, the player himself posted that he's scheduled for an MRI on Saturday.
Tough loss tonight. Im gonna do a MRI tomorrow to see how is my knee. Thank you for ur support I really appreciate it.— Ricky Rubio (@rickyrubio9) March 10, 2012
Hopefully everything turns out okay, but news like this is never fun to deal with -- especially with a player so promising.
