Ricky Rubio

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

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.

Needs to get in the weight room

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...

Top 2

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,

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

Thanks Kant

Yeah that doesn't sound so bad. Day-to-day won't hurt his stock at all, or prevent him from entering the draft.

nope.....

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.

Videos: Some videos you

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.

Rubio wasn't expected to

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

You can follow it live, look for the "Basket (ACB): 20.15 DKV Joventut - Real Madrid" in this web:

http://rojadirecta.com/

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)

Stats

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.
