If You're Drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves, Expect to Have a Major Injury

Ricky Rubio’s torn ACL has ruined Minnesota’s promising season. As noted by Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune, Rubio’s the latest in a long line of first round picks by the Timberwolves since 2005 to suffer a major injury.

2005: Rashad McCants (knee) – Missed 45 games in his second season.
2006: Randy Foye (kneecap) – Missed 43 games to start his second year.
2007: Corey Brewer (ACL) – Missed 67 games in his second season.
2008: Kevin Love (Broken hand) – Missed 22 games in his second season.
2009: Ricky Rubio (ACL) – Spectacular rookie season ruined by Kobe Bryant.

The good news is that the Wolves don’t have a 1st round pick in 2012. The Hornets got it in the Chris Paul trade.

Because you want to see it first!
