Wolves could be without Rubio tonight in L.A.


Ricky Rubio may not be on the court tonight when the Wolves play the Lakers in Los Angeles.

According to the Star Tribune, Rubio did not participate in this morning's shootaround because he was feeling ill.

Wolves President of Basketball Operations Flip Saunders told KFAN's Dan Barreiro that Rubio might have food poisoning.

If Rubio can't play, the point guard duties will be blended between J.J. Barea, Alexey Shved and A.J. Price.

Kobe Bryant (fractured knee) will not play for the Lakers.

The game tips off at 9:30 p.m. Central Time.
