The Spaniards Ricky Rubio and Juancho Hernangomez will miss their team’s next game, the Minnesota Timberwolves, who will play at home tonight against the Memphis Grizzlies, due to the health and safety protocols established by the NBA. Hernangomez has gone into isolation and will be quarantined and out for at least 10 days, according to The Athletic’s Jon Krawczynski. Although the Wolves have not officially specified the reason, the forward could have contracted the coronavirus
In the case of Ricky Rubio, a period of time that he will be inactive has not yet been established, but the same sources point out that he could have registered a positive or inconclusive COVID-19 test, or could be in quarantine as a result of the tracking of contacts. This possibility would be very feasible if, as it seems,
His teammate Juancho Hernangomez had contracted the disease since the two spend a lot of time together both in the Wolves’ concentrations and in their daily lives in Minnesota. In 11 games, Ricky Rubio averaged 6.3 points, 2.8 rebounds, 5.4 assists, and 1.4 steals per game starting as a substitute, while Juancho Hernangómez credits 6.6 points and 5.3 rebounds per game starting as a starter at the Wolves.
