Rubio has officially been ruled out for the Timberwolves' preseason opener Wednesday night. Here's more from Marcus R. Fuller of the St. Paul Pioneer Press:[Timberwolves coach Sam] Mitchell will have Rubio sit out Wednesday night's exhibition...

Now, he's starting his fifth year (and fifth preseason) on the wrong foot—or the wrong quad...

T'Wolves GM: We’re not talking about trading Ricky Rubio

Heading into his fifth NBA season, Minnesota point guard Ricky Rubio is caught in a bit of a basketball limbo for the Timberwolves. He’s too old to be considered a true member of the Wolves raw, young core (though with Rubio being just 24, that’s more a testament to the absurd pool of fresh talent on the team than anything). But he’s not old enough to be considered a veteran...

Ricky Rubio blasts Rudy Gobert as classless after Spain defeats France

Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio is like the benevolent puppy dog of the NBA. He tells teammates to be happy, he inspires marvelously idiosyncratic Christmas gifts, he loves scooters, and he’s fantastic with kids. Plus, he makes faces like this: Rubio just seems like the epitome of peace on earth and goodwill towards men. So when he calls you out for being classless, that’s...

Ricky Rubio is 'confident' the Timberwolves won't trade him

Ricky Rubio has heard his name in some trade rumors this offseason, though there has been nothing substantial.We've heard more interest in him from other teams than we have any desire for Minny to deal him. That might be why Rubio is so comfortable where he stands with the team that drafted him in 2009. Rubio, who is currently in Dubai for the BasicBall Academy summer camps, spoke...

Ricky Rubio on playing with Garnett: 'He kills for you'

Kevin Garnett probably isn’t a guy you want to play against on the hardwood. But play with? Now that’s a different story. The future NBA Hall of Famer is regarded as one of the best teammates in the NBA — as long as you’re working just as hard as him (though, frankly, that’s probably pretty difficult to do). It’s a lesson that one of Garnett’s Minnesota Timberwolves...

The Ricky Rubio Files: Revisitado

To start this off-season’s player profiles, I feel it’s essential to review and amend my attempt at this same project from last October. Most of The Ricky Rubio Files largely remains applicable. That article speaks for itself. Unfortunately, what is no longer applicable, isn’t exactly any more positive than before. This year, I’ll toss in some additional comments with reference...

Ricky Rubio welcomes Towns, tells him to pick up dry cleaning

The Minnesota Timberwolves made the selection near-universally expected with the first pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, tabbing Kentucky standout Karl-Anthony Towns as the latest young talent on a roster already loaded with youth and potential. T’Wolves point guard Ricky Rubio welcomed the 19-year-old big man to the organization by cracking wise on Twitter and...Read More The post...

Minnesota Timberwolves trade rumors: Will the team make another move?

The trade deadline is tomorrow at 2 p.m, and despite completing a couple trades last week, the Minnesota Timberwolves are still involved in a few trade discussions regarding their veteran players. It is no secret that the Minnesota Timberwolves are forming a team to win in the future and not this year, so it makes sense that the team would consider trading away the veterans on the...
