MINNEAPOLIS -- Ricky Rubio's left knee has been slow to come around this season. So have the crunch-time minutes and the victories for his Minnesota Timberwolves.

That all adds up to one frustrated point guard.

Rubio didn't hide his disappointment with sitting the entire fourth quarter in a loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night. He wants to be out there and helping his injury-plagued team close out tight games.

Acting head coach Terry Porter says he stuck with J.J. Barea because the Wolves needed more scoring punch.

On Thursday, Rubio said he understood the logic, but still wants to be on the floor more as he continues working his way back from a torn ACL.

The Timberwolves have lost seven of their last eight games.
