Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio recorded a triple-double on Monday night.
Insight: He had 18 points, 11 assists, 12 rebounds, along with one 3-pointer, one steal, and two turnovers. Rubio is arguably playing the best basketball of his career.
 
2/27/2015 10:25:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio recorded a double-double during Friday's loss against the Bulls.
Insight: He had 15 points, 10 assists, six rebounds, one 3-pointer, one steal, one block, and one turnover. An even bigger positive was that Rubio was able to play 38 minutes.
 
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.
 
12/4/2014 5:21:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves coach Flip Sainders confirmed to ESPN point guard Ricky Rubio will not return until January.
Insight: Rubio was hoping to play the day after Christmas, but that won't happen according to this latest report. Mo Williams and Zach LaVine will continue to be the point guards for Minnesota until at least January.
 
11/25/2014 7:14:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio (severe ankle sprain) is hoping to be back around Christmas week, according to Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune.
Insight: Mo Williams has played very well the past four games, averaging 13.3 ppg and 7.3 apg over that span and should be expected to continue to play at this level.
 
11/8/2014 7:14:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio will be out indefinitely due to a severe ankle sprain.
Insight: The estimated recovery time is 7-to-8 weeks, which hurts owners a ton. Surprisingly Zach LaVine is starting on Saturday, but we still like Mo Williams as a waiver pickup, as he should still see 25-30 minutes per game.
 
11/8/2014 10:37:00 AM
Description: X-rays on Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio's ankle were negative according to Bleacher Report.
Insight: That is good news but coach Flip Saunders said the point guard is still expected to miss a good amount of time. He looks like the injury Rubio suffered on Friday was a high ankle sprain. This usually keeps players out for multiple weeks, which means fire up Mo Williams in standard fantasy leagues.
 
11/7/2014 8:01:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio left Friday's game against the Magic with an ankle injury.
Insight: Rubio rolled his ankle while driving the lane for a layup. It looked like it could be a serious ankle sprain, but there are no official reports just yet. He had to be helped to the locker room. UPDATE: The Timberwolves are calling Rubio's injury an ankle sprain, and the point guard needs an X-ray.
 
10/31/2014 9:02:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio has agreed to a four-year contract extension with Minnesota, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
Insight: The deal is a $55 million extension, and it makes sense for the Timberwolves to lock up a popular player, after losing Kevin Love in the offseason.
 
10/31/2014 12:28:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio is averaging 11 shot attempts per game over the first two contests of 2014-15 and 11.5 ppg.
Insight: We like that his shot attempts are up from 8.2 last season and his career average of 8.8. At this current level and with his passing ability he starts to garner much more fantasy value.
 
10/18/2014 11:08:00 AM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio needs to take a step forward during his fourth NBA season.
Insight: He just has not broken out like many people have expected him to do. Rubio averaged 9.5 points per game, 8.6 assists per game, 2.3 steals per game, and shot .381 from the field last season. While his assist and steal numbers are good, Rubio has a career-average of 2.9 turnovers per game, and along with a poor field goal percentage, his current ADP in the late fourth round, is a little high for our liking.
 
Hot4/8/2014 9:30:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio had 23 points, seven assists and one steal Tuesday against the Spurs.
Insight: Rubio has helped the Wolves go 3-1 in their last four games despite numerous injuries by averaging 17 points, 9.5 assists and 2.3 steals.
