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.
Rush's agent, Mark Bartelstein, said Tuesday that the second year of the contract is a player option for Rush. The deal is pending a physical that Rush will take in the next few days.
