Rush collected 12 points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal across 37 minutes during Monday's 110-109 victory over the Timberwolves. Prior to Monday, Rush had only been seeing 18.0 minutes per game over the past six contests with coach Tom Thibodeau opting to give reserve point guard Kris Dunn some run next to starter Ricky Rubio. It appears that coach Thibodeau may have opted to go back to his usual rotation Monday, with Rush seeing around 35 minutes per contest. The situation could be worth monitoring, especially with most fantasy leagues in their playoffs.
Rush (illness) will start at shooting guard Friday against the Warriors, Kyle Ratke of Timberwolves.com reports. Rush only missed one game with the illness, and it looks like it won't jeopardize his standing as a starter, a role he's held since Zach LaVine suffered a season-ending ACL tear in early February. Shabazz Muhammad, who tallied 17 points, six rebounds and one steal in 26 minutes Friday, will move back to the bench to accommodate Rush's return and will likely see his playing time take a hit.
Rush (illness) took part in Thursday's practice and is considered probable for Friday's game against the Warriors, Kent Youngblood of the Minnesota Star Tribune reports. It looks like Rush will only miss one game due to the illness, which prevented him from suiting up in Wednesday's win over the Clippers. Look for Rush to reclaim his starting role at shooting guard Friday, resulting in Shabazz Muhammad heading back to the bench. Rush won't necessarily be in store for starter-level minutes, however, as coach Tom Thibodeau could opt to divvy up the minutes at shooting guard between Rush, Muhammad, Tyus Jones and the newly-re-signed Lance Stephenson.
Rush (illness) will play in Friday's game against the Warriors, Jerry Zgoda of the Minnesota Star Tribune reports. Rush sat out Wednesday's win over the Clippers due to an illness, but he was able to log a full practice Thursday and take part in morning shootaround Friday, prompting the T-Wolves to clear him for a return. Look for Rush to assume his typical role as the team's starting shooting guard and play around 25 minutes, which will likely translate to less time for Shabazz Muhammad, Tyus Jones and Lance Stephenson.
Rush is dealing with an illness and has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Clippers. Rush attempted to make it through pregame warmups, but is still not feeling well enough to take the court, so he'll get the night off Wednesday. Shabazz Muhammad will jump into the starting lineup in his place and should see a bump in minutes for the duration of Rush's absence. Rush could be back as soon as Friday's game against the Wizards.
