Ricky Rubio (Minnesota).

The world of basketball has showed its support to Ricky Rubio after the Timberwolves player sustained a serious injury against the Los Angeles Lakers. Rubio will miss the rest of the season and, in all likelihood, will miss the Olympic Games in London this summer.

Social networks lit up in support of the player and various hashtags have become popular in both the NBA and the Liga Endesa (#AnimoRicky #AnimsRicky and #SpeedyRecovery). Some of Barça Regal’s players like Marcelinho Huertas, Joe Ingles, CJ Wallance and Josep Pérez have joined their voices to other famous basketball players like Pau Gasol, Roger Grimau, LeBron James, Baron David and Kevin Love in support of Rubio.

Here are some of the messages to Ricky Rubio:
