Ricky Rubio (rest) did not play on Wednesday against the Rockets.
The Wolves wanted to get a look at their young point guards, so they gave Rubio his first game off since Jan. 22. Considering how well he played, the Rubio trade rumors should subside this summer, but anything is possible after this team was a disappointment. Apr 12 - 11:44 PM

Kris Dunn will start for Ricky Rubio against the Rockets on Wednesday.

In the season finale, there is a very good chance Rubio gets the night off and Tyus Jones backs up Dunn. Rubio had a great run post break, averaging 16.0 points, 4.6 boards, 10.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.0 treys. Dunn will be a risky DFS play, but he has upside.
Apr 12 - 8:03 PM

Ricky Rubio played 36 minutes and hit just 4-of-13 shots, but still finished with 14 points, 10 assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in Tuesday's 100-98 loss to the Thunder.

Tom Thibodeau doesn't rest his guys - ever. It's possible he could sit his studs in Wednesday's finale at Houston, but it doesn't appear to be a likely scenario. Make sure they're all playing prior to game time and then feel free to unleash the Wolves in DFS play. Tonight's game was meaningless, yet Thibs' four key starters (Gorgui Dieng, Andrew Wiggins, Karl-Anthony Towns and Rubio) each played at least 36 minutes in a two-point loss.
Apr 11 - 10:32 PM

Ricky Rubio misfired on nine of his 10 field-goal attempts in Sunday's 110-109 loss against the Lakers, finishing with just two points.

It's a good thing Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins were on fire, each going for over 40 points. Rubio's offense had been surprising good recently. This deuce in the scoring column looks even worse with Rubio coming off a 26-point effort at Utah against the NBA's No. 1 scoring defense.
Apr 10 - 12:20 AM

Ricky Rubio scored 19 points on 8-of-19 shooting vs. Portland on Thursday, adding seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block in 39 minutes.

Rubio started hot but he and the Wolves struggled down the stretch tonight, failing to play spoiler to the playoff-hungry Blazers. Tom Thibodeau has shown zero inclination to rest his key players in the final games of the season, even though Minnesota has been eliminated from the playoff race, so Rubio should maintain his usual role.
Apr 7 - 1:37 AM

Ricky Rubio led the Wolves to a 110-109 win over the Blazers on Monday, scoring 11 points (2-of-7 FGs, 7-of-9 FTs) with 16 assists, seven rebounds and one block in 39 minutes.

Rubio was on a mission tonight and dished out nine assists alone in the first quarter. He's in a bit of a shooting slump and is just 3-of-17 from the field over his last two games, but it's tough to complain here as the Spaniard has racked up four straight double-doubles. There has been no indication from coach Tom Thibodeau that he will rest his players, so Rubio's owners should be in amazing shape with four more games on the schedule this week.
Apr 3 - 9:39 PM

Ricky Rubio hit just 1-of-10 from the field on his way to 11 points in Saturday's loss to the Kings.

He missed all three of his 3-point attempts, but finished 9-of-10 from the line with 13 assists, six rebounds and two steals. The Wolves are using a lot more two-PG lineups these days, so even though they have nothing to play for expect lottery balls, it doesn't look like Rubio is going to be shut down. His owners will hopefully be able to deploy him for all five games next week.
Apr 1 - 11:23 PM

Ricky Rubio said he feels "the best [he's] ever felt" after scoring a career-high 33 points in Thursday night's win over the Lakers.

"Starting the season, I wasn't feeling that good and now I feel the best I've ever felt," said Rubio. The dramatic spike in Rubio's production has been incredible. In the 17 games played since the All-Star break, Rubio is averaging 16.8 points, 10.5 assists, 4.5 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 1.2 treys, while shooting 46.3 percent from the floor, 43.8 percent from 3-point territory and 91.4 percent from the free throw line. Fantasy owners couldn't possibly ask for more.
Mar 31 - 9:57 AM

Ricky Rubio got hot early and scored 20 of his career-high 33 points in the first half on Thursday, finishing with five rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and four 3-pointers on 12-of-20 shooting.

"He's got a lot of confidence in his shot right now," coach Tom Thibodeau said prior to the game. His confidence level got another boost tonight and after a sluggish start to the season, is now one of the most exciting players in the NBA from day to day.
Mar 30 - 11:02 PM

Ricky Rubio hit just 4-of-12 shots, but also knocked down 13-of-13 free throws on his way to 21 points and 10 assists in 38 minutes of Tuesday's 115-114 win over the Pacers.

He also hit the game-winning free throws late, which should give him a boost of confidence as well. Rubio was struggling pretty badly earlier in the season, but has turned it around to become a force down the stretch. If you bought low or held onto him through the dark period, it's paying off right now. He's averaging 15 points, 10.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.0 3-pointers on 39 percent shooting over his last five games, but also hasn't missed a free throw in his last eight games (38-of-38).
Mar 28 - 10:48 PM

Ricky Rubio scored 16 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

This loss puts the Wolves down six games from the No. 8 spot with only 10 games to go, so they're basically dead in the water. We'll see how coach Tom Thibodeau plays this one with Rubio, but it's obvious more minutes are going to Tyus Jones and Kris Dunn. To be clear, the low minutes today had to do with garbage time. With only three games this week, Rubio's fantasy owners may have to weigh their options.
Mar 26 - 12:57 AM

Ricky Rubio scored 19 points on 5-of-13 shooting with 15 assists, three rebounds, three steals, one block and one triple in Friday's loss to the Lakers.

This was the fifth straight loss for the Wolves and they now trail the No. 8 seed (Denver) by 6.5 games. However, Rubio's owners may not have to worry about DNPs or a potential shut-down just yet -- the Wolves used more two-PG lineups tonight and Rubio logged 25 minutes next to Kris Dunn. Even though Dunn's workload should rise, he will likely take minutes away from Brandon Rush and not Rubio if tonight was any indication.
Mar 25 - 1:59 AM

Ricky Rubio stayed hot on Friday vs. the Heat with 20 points, six assists, two steals and one block.

He finished 8-of-14 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line with three turnovers in 33 minutes. Coach Tom Thibodeau has been encouraging Rubio to shoot more often and it's paying dividends, as he's now scored 20+ points in four straight games which is the longest streak of his career. As long as the Wolves are within striking distance of the No. 8 seed, Rubio's workload will be safe -- they are 4.5 games behind Denver.
Mar 17 - 11:00 PM

Ricky Rubio followed up Monday's massive double-double with 23 points on 8-of-14 shooting, hitting three 3-pointers with seven assists, three rebounds and one steal.

He dished out 19 dimes vs. Washington on Monday, setting a franchise record, and he's been terrific ever since the Wolves opted not to trade him at the deadline. He committed just one turnover in 32 minutes tonight, and over his past three contests he's averaged 22.3 points on combined 25-of-43 shooting (58.1 percent). Let the good times roll.
Mar 15 - 11:14 PM

Ricky Rubio scored 22 points with a franchise record 19 assists and three steals over 39 minutes in Monday's 119-104 win against the Wizards.

Rubio also has 20-plus points in back-to-back games for the first time since March 12-13, 2013. He also tied a season best with six straight double-digit point totals. The Spaniard is averaging 11.8 assists per game over his past nine, three per outing above his season total.
