Brandon Rush left knee injury in home opener Golden State Warriors vs. Memphis Grizzlies 2 November 2012. Brandon Rush will have season-ending surgery.
Brandon Rush leaped in the air for a dunk when Zach Randolph fouled him from behind and instead hit him in the head, throwing the Golden State Warriors forward off balance and sending him crashing to the court in a scary fall.. Rush’s left leg landed awkwardly, his knee bent badly and he tumbled to the floor.
Brandon Rush got up on one leg, waved his arms violently in the air and shook off teammates who tried to help as the announced sellout of 19,596 halted to a hush. He covered his face in agony and openly wept, eventually limping to the locker room with the support of teammate Jeremy Tyler and trainers.
Zach Randolph put his arm around Rush at one point. Randolph said he “went over there and told (Rush) I was sorry and that if he needs me, I’m there for him, whatever he needs.”
