Ricky Rubio’s much promising first season in NBA could come to an abrupt end as the Minnesota Timberwolves’ guard fears the worst scenario: that he might have torn his Achilles tendon.

The injury occurred during the dying seconds of the game against Lakers after Ricky Rubio and Kobe Bryant’s knees banged during a defensive effort by the Spanish international guard.

The state of his injury will be re-evaluated today, but there are fears that the player could miss the remainder of the season.

For the record the Timberwolves, who played without Kevin Love, went on to lose the game, 105-102.
