Ricky Rubio Expected to Miss Two More Games With Stiff Back

by January 02, 2013

Minnesota Timberwolves point guard isn’t likely to play in the next two road games due to a stiff back (which caused him to miss Saturday night’s game against the Phoenix Suns.) Per the Star Tribune: “Rick Adelman said it didn’t make much sense to put Rubio and his spasming back on a plane to Utah and Denver for back-to-back games, the second of which he’s wasn’t going to play anyway. Instead, unless there’s a late change in plans before the team flies today, they’ll keep him [in Minnesota] for treatment and try to get him healthy for Saturday’s game against Portland.”
