3/23/2015 8:08:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio will not play on Monday versus the Jazz.
Insight: With Rubio sitting out this game, he has missed four of the last five games with his ankle injury. It doesn't sound like Minnesota is going to rush him back as they try and move closer to the best lottery pick. Rubio can be dropped in standard leagues.

Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio will not play against the Hornets on Sunday due to an ankle injury.

3/18/2015 6:35:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio will play on Wednesday versus the Raptors according to CBS Sports.
Insight: Rubio has missed the last two games probably partially due to the Timberwolves playing him too many minutes in the prior games. Rubio will likely play 28-34 minutes on Wednesday. With Rubio back, though, Zach LaVine is irrelevant.

3/7/2015 10:52:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio recorded 15 assists and nearly posted a triple-double on Saturday night.
Insight: He finished with 13 points, 15 dimes, eight rebounds, one 3-pointer, and just one turnover. Rubio needs to be active everywhere.

2/9/2015 11:34:00 AM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio sat out Sunday, but is expected to return Monday versus Atlanta.
Insight: The day off was the team being conservative after he missed so much time. He's averaging 10.3 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 8.5 apg, 1.4 spg in eight games this season and is a viable fantasy option even against the tough, defensive-minded Hawks.
 
2/6/2015 10:32:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio played well during Friday's win over the Grizzlies.
Insight: He went for 17 points, five assists, five rebounds, three 3-pointers, three steals, and three turnovers. Rubio played 26 minutes, and it looks like his playing time will continue to trend up.
 
2/3/2015 4:11:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio (ankle) came out of Monday's game fine, and is probable for Wednesday.
Insight: Rubio played 20 minutes in his return to action, and managed 10 points and four assists. It will probably take a few games before Minnesota lets him completely loose.
 
2/2/2015 10:55:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio played 21 minutes and scored 10 points in his first action in nearly three months.
Insight: Rubio was 4-of-9 and went 2-for-2 at the line. He missed his only 3-point attempt. Rubio also had four assists, three rebounds and three turnovers. Expect the Timberwolves to continue to bring him along slowly.
 
2/2/2015 7:33:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio will play on Monday versus the Mavericks.
Insight: Rubio will be making his return to the lineup after he suffered an ankle sprain in November. Timberwolves coach Flip Sanders said he expects Rubio to play around 20 minutes.
 
2/2/2015 10:42:00 AM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio (ankle) could return on Monday versus Dallas.
Insight: Even should he return Monday it will be in a very limited capacity, so fantasy owners shouldn't expect him to help them out for a while. In Saunders words "just a few minutes."
 
1/21/2015 2:18:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio will not play on Wednesday versus the Mavericks.
Insight: Rubio has been doing contact drills in practice and hopes to return late in January. Being that it's already the 21st, we are guessing that means next week. Mo Williams will continue to have the greatest spike in fantasy value as long as Rubio is out.
 
1/20/2015 4:08:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio took part in contact drills for the first time Tuesday, according to NBA writer Jon Krawczynski.
Insight: Rubio was injured on Nov. 7. He's going to return soon, so if he was dropped in your fantasy league, pick Rubio and his 9.4 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 10.0 apg, 1.2 spg up right now.
 
12/25/2014 10:54:00 AM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio was hoping to return around Christmas, but will not return until January.
Insight: Rubio has not begun to practice. Mo Williams and Zach LaVine will continue to be the point guards for Minnesota until at least January.
