OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Brandon Rush's season is over after two games.
Rush's agent, Mark Bartelstein, says Saturday that an MRI exam on the Golden State Warriors' top reserve revealed a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Rush will have season-ending surgery.
Rush leaped in the air for a dunk when Zach Randolph fouled him from behind in the first quarter of Golden State's 104-94 loss to Memphis on Friday night. Rush landed awkwardly, and his knee bent badly as he tumbled to the court. He held back tears and had to be helped to the locker room.
Rush signed an $8 million, two-year deal in July after coming over in a trade from Indiana last season. He tore the ACL in his right knee at Kansas in 2007.
