Still no word from the Timberwolves if Ricky Rubio will make his season debut Wednesday night against Denver. Rick Adelman told reporters on Tuesday that he doesn’t “have any idea” of when Rubio will play. Whether or not he plays, one thing is certain: Rubio’s teammates are still raving about how much better he makes everyone on the court.
Even if he doesn’t play against the Nuggets, Kevin Love thinks he’ll be playing “pretty soon.”
Andrei Kirilenko, playing with Rubio for the first time this season, already believes the Spanish Sensation is a “great player.”
Who isn’t a great player? Derrick Williams. His slide down the bench is an ongoing story.
