OAKLAND, Calif. -- Brandon Rush's season is over after two games.

Rush's agent, Mark Bartelstein, says Saturday that an MRI exam on the Golden State Warriors' top reserve revealed a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Rush will have season-ending surgery.

Rush leaped in the air for a dunk when Zach Randolph fouled him from behind in the first quarter of Golden State's 104-94 loss to Memphis on Friday night. Rush landed awkwardly, and his knee bent badly as he tumbled to the court. He held back tears and had to be helped to the locker room.

Rush signed an $8 million, two-year deal in July after coming over in a trade from Indiana last season. He tore the ACL in his right knee at Kansas in 2007.

I did as well. Rush is someone who is a terrific role player on a championship contender like the Lakers. It's really a shame that he suffered such a brutal injury. He seems like a good guy too. Really hope he recovers from this. I'd love to see him in a Lakers uniform one day if he gets fully back to the player he was pre-injury.

Yes. Essentially the same injury.
