Timberwolves' Brandon Rush: Game-time decision Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rush (toe) will have his status for Saturday's matchup with the Grizzlies determined following the team's pregame, Timberwolves' radio announcer Alan Horton reports.

Rush has missed the previous six games with a sprained toe. If he can play, it is unclear if the team will opt to ease him back into action. Shabazz Muhammad is also questionble, so Rush could be needed for some extra minutes if he cannot go.

Timberwolves' Tyus Jones: Set for larger role Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kris Dunn and Jones are expected to split point guard duties Sunday against Denver with Ricky Rubio set to miss the game, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Ricky Rubio will miss the game for a personal issue, but is expected to return Monday. Jones scored four points with four assists in 12 minutes in Thursday's win over the Clippers with Rubio missing time with a sore hip. Despite languishing on the bench, Jones has had stints of significant playing time. However, he'll likely have a limited role Sunday.

Timberwolves' Ricky Rubio: Won't play Sunday vs. Nuggets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rubio (hip) is away from the Timberwolves for personal reasons and won't play in Sunday's game against the Nuggets, Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press reports.

Rubio injured his hip in Thursday's contest but that has nothing to do with his absence currently. It's unclear what the issue he's dealing with is but he's expected to be back with the team Monday and will likely return for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

Timberwolves' Kris Dunn: Minutes extended in Rubio's absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn finished with five points (2-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds and four assists in 25 minutes played Thursday night against the Clippers, when he started the second half after Ricky Rubio was forced to exit due to a hip injury.

Dunn played crunch-time minutes in Minnesota's narrow road victory, proving to be a capable replacement for the injured Rubio. Although it's unclear how Rubio's hip problem will impact his upcoming availability, Dunn's well-rounded, albeit low-volume, performance could earn him more run going forward. In five starts this season, the rookie has averaged 4.4 points, 4.6 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 2.0 steals in 24.0 minutes per game.

Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Seven points in Thursday win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad tallied seven points (2-5 F, 1-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT) and four rebounds over 18 minutes in Thursday's 104-10 win over the Clippers.

Muhammad's modest point total nevertheless paced the T-Wolves' bench, and his four rebounds co-led the second unit as well. The fourth-year pro continues to see a fairly solid allotment of playing time on most nights and is enjoying his best overall month of the season, averaging 9.7 points and 3.7 rebounds while posting double-digit scoring in five of nine January games.
