More on Ricky Rubio Injury

Adrian Wojnarowski: Cleveland Cavaliers guard Ricky Rubio will get an MRI on his left knee Wednesday, source tells ESPN. There’s obvious concern on the possible severity of the injury. Rubio has been a huge part of Cavs’ success story this season.
Cleveland Cavaliers guard Ricky Rubio will get an MRI on his left knee on Wednesday to assess the severity of an injury he suffered in Tuesday night's 108-104 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Rubio injured his knee with 2 minutes, 20 seconds left in the fourth quarter. As he was driving down the lane, he maneuvered around Pelicans guard Devonte' Graham and slipped as he planted his right foot, and his left knee buckled as he fell to the ground.
When asked about Rubio after the game, Cavs coach J.B. Bickerstaff said Rubio was "still being evaluated." Rubio was having a stellar game before the injury, posting 27 points, 13 rebounds and 8 assists in 37 minutes. The Cavs were playing without Darius Garland, who went into the health and safety protocols earlier Tuesday. Rubio tore his ACL in his left knee during his rookie season in Minnesota in 2012.

He brings a lot of energy,” Thibodeau said.
