Rubio (ankle) will not play Sunday, but could go Monday, Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports

Even if Rubio is able to return Monday, it remains to be seen how much court time he will actually get.

Rubio was questionable for Monday's game against the Jazz but didn't end up playing in the contest. There's little reason to think he'll suit up Wednesday, given that he's been downgraded to doubftful. With Gary Neal (ankle) also doubtful and Kevin Martin (hamstring) questionable, the T-Wolves may need to heavily lean on Zach LaVine, Lorenzo Brown and Chase Budinger. All three of those guys logged 39 or more minutes in Monday's surprising overtime victory over the Jazz.
