Wiggins is going to see scoring average soar with Kevin Martin, Rubio and Pekovic out of lineup.
I walked in behind three of injured Twolves - Ricky Rubio, Ronny Turiaf and Nikola Pekovic.
Former UCLA player Zach LaVine at PG for Minnesota with Ricky Rubio and Mo Williams out. Williams out with strep throat and pink eye.
En los Wolves son baja por lesión Ricky (Rubio) y (Kevin) Martin.
During timeout, Ricky Rubio is sitting on the bench in the huddle and talking to players and listening to Flip. That's something right there
Wolves are missing four would-be starters tonight against the Spurs: Rubio, Pekovic, Martin, Thad Young.
Rubio says he's becoming a more vocal leader. "My English is better."
Rubio says his parents are coming for Christmas. He hopes to be playing by then but has really has no idea when he'll be back
The Minnesota Timberwolves _ without Rubio, Young, Pekovic _ are up by 24 on the Knicks in the 3rd quarter
So no Rubio, no Pekovic - and it's not even Wiggins. What we turn on to is Corey Brewer, Robbie Hummel and Shabazz Muhammed going wild?
Mavs (1-3) vs MIN last yr. K. Love is gone & Rubio is hurt. Last yr v DAL: K. Martin (24.3ppg), Pekovic (18P/8.3R), Brewer (14.8 ppg 51% FG)
It should be remembered that this is a radically different team without Rubio and Thad Young.. but Pels playing great.
No Rubio. No Thad. Wolves looking and playing like a team feeling sorry for themselves. Dallas tomorrow night. Woof.
It's a real shame Rubio got hurt. TWolves would be sneaky competitive with him, and very fun to watch.
Basically: Ricky Rubio passes a lot, is very good at it.
Kinda funny how after the last 2 games with Rubio out the people in my timeline who said he wasn't worth 55M have gone a little quiet
