After crushing the Portland Trail Blazers 125-98 last night, the Golden State Warriors have some more good news to be excited about.
Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reported yesterday that injured shooting guard Brandon Rush will be ready for the Warriors’ 2013-2014 training camp.
Brandon Rush, who had left ACL surgery Jan. 16, says his doctors are telling him he’ll be ready for the Warriors’ 2013-14 training camp.

Rush, who tore his ACL and MCL in the team’s home opener on November 2nd, has been rehabilitating his knee in New York and it looks like he is up-to-date with his recovery. He has been off crutches for about three and a half weeks and in another three weeks, he will be doing some light running and jumping.
The former Kansas Jayhawk played beautifully for the Warriors last year in his first season with the team. Rush put up 9.8 points per game and 6.8 rebounds per game to compliment his superb perimeter defense and interior shot blocking.
The Warriors were sad to see their key bench player go down in just their second game of this season, but the reported good news gives the organization a huge sigh of relief.
