It seems that whenever Rubio has a nagging injury he really struggles. Early this season, early last season, the season before. His shooting has been just awful at these times. Like the worst in the league by a huge margin.
But 2013, late last season and now he has merely been bad. Let's call it 40%.
I still think PG is the #3 need for the Wolves. The key is that bad/injured Rubio has to stop happening.
1) A 20-25 min/gm larger defensive wing allowing the Wolves to split Wiggins and Lavine's minutes and to jettison Bazz during RFA. PJ Tucker?
2) A 20-25 min/gm smaller 4 allowing the Wolves to split Dieng and Towns's minutes. Bjelica continues to show promise but he got injured again.
3) A better starting PG. Tough to find and Dunn likely isn't it. He possesses the same flaws as Rubio.
