Clipper update: Rush has torn ACL

November 17, 2009 |  8:43 pm

Clippers guard Kareem Rush suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during Tuesday night's game, tests revealed.

Rush will be lost for the season, yet another blow for the injury ravaged team.

Rush injured his knee late in the first quarter in New Orleans against the Hornets, and he had to be helped off the court. Results of an MRI exam came back late Tuesday night, showing the tear, according to the Clippers.
