  • Rubio recorded 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 FT), six assists and three rebounds across 28 minutes in Friday's 117-90 loss to the Pistons. The Timberwolves took their second double-digit loss in as many days, but Rubio was among the better performers of the starting five, as he missed only one shot and didn't turn the ball over. Even so, this was just the first time since Nov. 28 that Rubio even hit double figures in the scoring column, and he's still shooting a woeful 36.7 percent on the season. With Rubio's assist totals also lagging behind his marks from previous years, it's nearly reached the point where those in shallower formats may need to consider cutting the point guard.

  • Rubio scored seven points with three assists in 29 minutes in Thursday's loss to Toronto. After scoring nine points with 12 assists Sunday, Rubio's lackluster season has continued the past two games as he's just 4-of-16 from the field and had just nine total assists in his last two games. There's a risk the T-Wolves could begin to use Kris Dunn at point guard more at Rubio's expense.

  • Rubio scored nine points with seven rebounds and 12 assists while playing 37 minutes in Saturday's overtime win over Charlotte. Rubio was just 2-of-7 from the field, but made a key three-point shot late in the fourth quarter in an amazing comeback win. Rubio has had a slow start to the season on offense as he's on pace for a career-low 6.5 points per game and has been benched at times in crunch time late in games. Perhaps Saturday's performance will begin to turn his season around on offense.

  • Rubio scored eight points with six assists and three steals in 38 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Knicks. Rubio had played less than 30 minutes in four consecutive games as he was being benched in the fourth quarter for Tyus Jones. It seemed like head coach Tom Thibodeau was ready to mix up his rotation, but that wasn't the case Wednesday as he stuck with his starters. With Minnesota losing again, it's possible Thibodeau could decide to experiment at point guard.

  • Rubio supplied 11 points (4-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, two rebounds and two steals across 25 minutes in Monday's 112-103 loss to the Jazz. Rubio delivered his most efficient shooting night of the season and turned the ball over just once, but it still wasn't enough for coach Tom Thibodeau to give him a full workload. The 26-year-old has now been held under 30 minutes in four consecutive games, with second-year man Tyus Jones (14 minutes Monday) starting to cut into his playing time. It looks increasingly unlikely that the Timberwolves view Rubio as their long-term solution at point guard, and since he's still shooting just 37.1 percent from the field on the season, he'll need to pick up his play considerably if he hopes to avoid ceding more minutes to Jones.
