Warriors F Brandon Rush injures left knee
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Golden State Warriors forward Brandon Rush had to be helped off the floor after he injured his left knee against the Memphis Grizzlies in Friday night's home opener.
Rush leaped in the air for a dunk when Zach Randolph fouled him with 4:09 left in the first quarter. Rush landed awkwardly, his knee bent badly and he tumbled to the floor.
Rush got up on one leg immediately, waved his arms in the air and shook off teammates who tried to help. He covered his face in agony and eventually limped to the locker room with the support of teammate Jeremy Tyler and trainers.
Rush signed an $8 million, two-year deal in July after coming over in a trade from Indiana last season.
