Minnesota point guard Ricky Rubio left the Timberwolves' loss to the Orlando Magic last night with a badly sprained ankle. The team announced that Rubio will be out indefinitely, but now reports are surfacing that he will miss a significant amount of time.
While Timberwolves announced G Ricky Rubio is out indefinitely with a significantly sprained left ankle, I'm told he could miss 7-8 weeks.

Minnesota had just signed Rubio to a 4-year, $56 million extension, and will now turn to backup Mo Williams to take over the starting point guard duties. Explosive rookie Zach LaVine will also see significantly more minutes.
The Timberwolves are 2-3 so far this season and face the Miami Heat tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET.Back to the Minnesota Timberwolves Newsfeed
