MIN coach Rick Adelman made it sound like Ricky Rubio is behind D-Rose in rehab. Rubio not cutting yet & just started shooting jumpers.
"It's a tough injury," Rubio said. "You are like six, eight, nine months without playing your favorite sport. Sometimes it's just playing basketball where you forget about everything and just enjoy it. I just wish him a healthy recovery."
Like Rose, Rubio has yet to start cutting. Unlike Rose, who started shooting jumpers weeks ago, Rubio is just progressing from set shots.
"Nobody had the same injury," Rubio said. "I mean, a little more meniscus or two ligaments or just one. Every player is different. Every recovery is different."
Does this mean that Rose is ahead of Rubio recovery-wise?
I know that Rubio, unlike Rose, tore his LCL too, but he did it seven weeks before Derrick came down. It's weird that Derrick is ahead of him, isn't it?
