Brandon Rush SG/SF GS Aug 14 '78
Brandon Rush was diagnosed with a torn ACL to his left knee and is expected to miss the rest of the season.
It's a devastating blow to Rush and the Warriors. Rush has been an important part of Golden State's rotation and they lack depth at the wing positions. Harrison Barnes is expected to see his minutes extended and his 3-point prowess puts him right at the top of the list for players to add in all leagues. Barnes played just six minutes of the first half, then followed it up with 17 minutes in the second half. Jarrett Jack could also get more minutes as the Warriors may utilize a three-guard lineup, but Klay Thompson guarding NBA small forwards sounds like a recipe for disaster.
