Zgoda: Ricky Rubio Out For Season With Torn ACL

Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports that Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio is out for the remainder of the 2011-2012 season after tearing the ACL in his left knee. The Portland Trail Blazers currently sit 1.5 games behind the Timberwolves in the Northwest Division standings. The two teams had been linked in recent trade rumors involving guard Luke Ridnour, who will now likely step in as Rubio's replacement at starting point guard. Thanks to Noah Traeger, who posted a preliminary report last night in the FanPosts. -- Ben Golliver | | Twitter
