Given the generally wretched caliber of the competition thus far, the team’s current 10-9 record isn’t exactly cause to strut. But with all their injuries, coupled with the uncertainties generated by a massive upheaval to the roster during the offseason, they could have become the patsy of the patsies, playing at a level beneath the bottom-feeders in the standings. The floor could have been terribly lower.
But this odd opening phase of the Wolves’ season will soon be over. Within the next week, Minnesota’s schedule is going to become a whole lot tougher. Almost simultaneously, the Wolves should begin taking steps that will enable them to play a whole lot better, as they are slowly but surely rejuvenated by the return of Rubio.
And lots of Joan Niesen here.
