Via Minneapolis Star-Tribune :
According the the Star-Tribune the Timberwolves’ point guard Ricky Rubio will not travel with the Wolves for their two-game road trip that starts Wednesday in Utah due to back and knee trouble.
* Don’t expect Ricky Rubio to make the trip because of that stiff back that caused him to miss Saturday’s victory over Phoenix.
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 here for treatment and try to get him healthy for Saturday’s game against Portland.
