Just a week after his new deal for a four-year, 55 million dollars contract extension with Minessota, Ricky Rubio was hurt badly on Friday’s game against Orlando and an ankle sprain is expected to keep him two months out of action.

That’s according to this report by USA Today, as according to the team the player will be “out indefinitely with a significant sprain”. The good news about his situation are, also according to USA Today, that he suffered no serious ligament or tendon damage.

On a brighter euro-note Giannis Antetokounmpo on Saturday night registered a career high of 18 points which was combined with a 93-92 win of the Bucks over Marc Gasol’s Memphis.
