Description: Ricky Rubio had 18 points, 10 assists and three steals for the shorthanded Timberwolves Saturday night at Orlando.
Insight: The Wolves started the game without Kevin Love, Kevin Martin and Nikola Pekovic and lost Chase Budinger to an ankle sprain just one minute into the game, so Rubio had to attempt 18 shots. He has scored double-digit points in three straight games for the first time since Feb. 5-8.

Description: Minnesota point guard Ricky Rubio had a great night on Wednesday posting a triple-double against the Mavericks with 22 points, 10 boards, 15 assists, four steals and one block.

Insight: He suffered the injury in last night's win over Golden State. J.J. Barea (8.6 ppg, 3.5 apg) would make for a nice spot start at point guard should Rubio be forced to sit out.

Description: Timberwolves PG Ricky Rubio had a full statline with 14 points, nine assists, eight rebounds, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer Wednesday against the Pelicans.
Insight: Rubio is only averaging 8.9 ppg on 35.3 percent shooting this season but he still has top-50 fantasy value due to his assists (8.3 apg), rebounds (4.7 rpg), steals (2.8 spg) and free-throw percentage (.854).

Insight: Rubio has shot just 7-of-32 (.219) over his last three games and 35.2 percent for the season. He's still worth owning in all leagues because he's putting up 7.9 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 2.8 steals per game, but he certainly has more value in non-percentage leagues. As for tonight, he has a good matchup with Los Angeles down to their fifth-string point guard.
 
12/20/2013 5:35:00 PM
Description: Minnesota guard Ricky Rubio is questionable for Friday's game due to an illness.
Insight: Rubio has shot just 7-of-32 (.219) over his last three games and 35.2 percent for the season. He's still worth owning in all leagues because he's putting up 7.9 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 2.8 steals per game, but he certainly has more value in non-percentage leagues.

11/2/2013 9:35:00 AM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio scored in double figures and dished out double-digit assists in each of the first two games this season.
Insight: He also picked up eight steals and three triples in that span. Rubio will likely still experience some shooting woes this season which will limit his scoring but he has the potential to average 10 assists and 3.0 steals. That makes him one of fantasy's top point guards.

4/9/2013 12:06:00 PM
Description: Minnesota point guard Ricky Rubio (shoulder) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against Golden State, but is fully expected to play in the game.
Insight: Rubio might some day lead the league in triple-doubles as he looks like the "next" Jason Kidd. The 22-year-old is averaging 10.6 ppg, 4.1 rpg and 7.5 apg in 51 games this season.
 
4/4/2013 9:50:00 AM

Description: Wolves guard Ricky Rubio nearly went for a triple-double Saturday against Memphis.
Insight: The 22-year-old finished with 23 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. That's Rajon Rondo-like. Now that his knee is back at 100 percent, we can expect many more performances like this from Rubio in the future.
