(Reuters) - Golden State Warriors guard-forward Brandon Rush will miss the remainder of the season after tearing a key ligament in his left knee, the National Basketball Association team said on Saturday.
He will undergo surgery and is expected to make a full recovery, the team said.
Rush tore his anterior cruciate ligament during the first quarter of Friday’s loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.
The fifth-year player had appeared in two games this season, averaging 7.0 points
