Rush said his knee finally feels 100 percent, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Rush suffered a torn ACL two seasons ago and was clearly still hampered by the injury in 2013-14. He appeared in 38 games for the Jazz but the knee never appeared fully healthy, and he struggled with the mental aspects of a serious knee injury. Now at 100 percent, Rush said he's more comfortable attacking the rim and is gaining confidence in the knee. He signed a two-year deal with the Warriors this summer and is expected to contribute as a swingman off the bench. Rush appeared in 65 games for Golden State in 2011-12, averaging 9.8 points and 3.9 rebounds while shooting 45.2 percent from three-point range.
