MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Minnesota Timberwolves sent an update on freshman star guard Ricky Rubio’s condition Thursday morning.

The team said Rubio had undergone successful surgery to reconstruct his torn ACL and LCL, or his anterior cruciate ligament and his lateral collateral ligament.

Rubio injured his leg during the team’s March 9 game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Before his injury, Rubio ranked third in the NBA in steals and fifth in assists.
