Ricky Rubio Expected to Miss Two More Games With Stiff Back

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.”
