Rubio: Uncomfortable With Role, Performance

Nothing is coming easily these days for the Spanish wunderkind that once lit the NBA on fire with his behind-the-back passes and reinvigorated a downtrodden franchise with a shot of sunshine right to its heart. In his third season, which was supposed to be the breakout year for him and his young team, Rubio has lost the sizzle that made his game so unique.His Minnesota Timberwolves are off to a disappointing 18-20 start, and Rubio places much of the blame on his shoulders. He’s shooting 34.6 percent and averaging 8.6 points per game, the two lowest numbers of his NBA career. But even worse, the energy, the optimism, the unbridled joy that he brought to the team has gone missing as well.”I’m going to be honest. I’m not feeling comfortable out there,” Rubio told The Associated Press after a light practice on Thursday. “I’m not being myself and the team is noticing. I just have to be back where I was, be myself. I’m working on that. It’s something that’s missing. It’s tough for me, too.”

Cavaliers guard Kevin Porter Jr. is expected to be traded or released following an outburst Friday in the Cavs locker room, The Athletic has learned from several sources with direct knowledge of the events.

Porter, 20, who has not played this season due to personal issues, grew angry when he entered the locker room and realized the team gave his old locker to Taurean Prince, who was acquired in a blockbuster trade Wednesday.

Sources said Porter, whose locker was moved to the wall where the younger, end-of-bench players reside, began yelling and at one point threw food.
