Kris Dunn will start instead of Ricky Rubio on Wednesday against the Rockets.
Better late than never, Thibs. We don’t have strong feelings one way or another about Tom Thibodeau’s decision to wait until the last game to give Dunn minutes, but it is a reflection of both Thibs’ style to make rookies earn minutes and Dunn’s inability to do so. All the other starters will remain the same for the Wolves and we’d simply give some of Rubio’s minutes and stats to Dunn. Rubio could very well still be the better play but it’s hard to say on the last day of the year.
