Injury forces Wolves to start rookie Dunn for Rubio

T'Wolves to start rookie point guard Kris Dunn.

The future is now for Wolves rookie point guard Kris Dunn.

Dunn will replace veteran Ricky Rubio tonight in the starting lineup because Rubio is out indefinitely after injuring his shooting elbow Saturday in the Wolves' loss at Sacramento.

Head Coach Tom Thibodeau confirmed the Dunn move this morning on WCCO radio. Rubio is out indefinitely, and according to reports he's going to miss at least a few days.
