I don't think Rubio's hip injury even if he won't be able to do some individual workouts, any other pre-draft workouts, or team workouts because he's that talented.
What do you think??????Can he drop to top 5 instead of top 2
He seems injury prone...
He's had two injuries, one to the wrist and one to his groin.
That doesn't sound like injury prone. Maybe some wishful thinking on your part for whatever reason.
Eat and lift cause them guys are going to be physical with him. You see what happens to point guards or little guards who attack the hole. They go down like Iverson, Rondo, CP3, and they have to keep getting up. Guys are bigger faster and stronger in the NBA. The Olympics was international rules and style of play. The NBA wont be. He will adjust.
I have a suspicion that he may return to Europe for another year...
I don't think there is any team who wouldn't take Rubio with the number two pick. Maybe the Clippers.
I hope he goes back to Europe for one more year. This is his second (major?) injury but he played through his wrist injury. He needs to prove he can play on a high level without getting hurt.
Does anybody have more information on his injury? How long will he be out? Private workouts?
He's been pro for 4 years, and has only got injured this one. No injury prone, he just slipped.
He's been listed as day to day but he wont be able to play game2 of the spanish playoffs, so it remains unknown at this moment if he will be healthy or not to make game 3 (not even workouts...)
Let's wait for the lottery, but the scouts already have tons of videos to see
Yeah that doesn't sound so bad. Day-to-day won't hurt his stock at all, or prevent him from entering the draft.
No actually I dont like to see ANYBODY get injured, I like to see players at full strength it provides for quality basketball. But he has been playing alot of baskeball right???
They way that scouts and GMs like this guy there is no way he drops out because that injury. He is a good player as people say but i haven't watched much of him play except the Olympics. I was impressed but if he is as good as most people say he is and how people say this is such a weak draft(i dont agree) he should still be a lock for top two.
Some videos you might be interested in:
Most of them are team highlights, but there are one or two listed as "the Ricky show". Even though it is in Spanish, it is not required more than watch the pictures of the video preview.
sergio llull broke his ankles xD
hope he gets better and plays in the nba this year
Rubio wasn't expected to play, but he entered the court at 5 mins of the game and reordered his team. So far, 4 minutes, 2 points, 2 assist, 1 steal.
Looks like he recovered quite fast.
You can follow it live, look for the "Basket (ACB): 20.15 DKV Joventut - Real Madrid" in this web:
In the right corner you have the English language option.
EDIT: You might see some familiar faces: Coby Karl and Mallet are playing for DKV, and for Real Madrid are playing Massey, Louis Bullock, Raul Lopez (ex-Jazz), F. Reyes (undersized international spanish C), A. Mumbrú (starting 3 for Spain) and Sergi Llull (enters the draft this year)
End of the match, a very much needed win for Ricky's team. 82-77 and they'll play to get through @ Madrid.
Ricky was the man of the match coming off the bench to spark the offense with 16 points, 7 rebounds, 4 steals, 6 assists and 6 TO in 30 min, ending with a stat similar to Hollinger's PER with 24 points. The second in PER was his pick&roll mate Moiso with 20. He didn't seem to be 100% healthy, and sometimes he was limping in the court.
