Luke Ridnour Is Out Vs. Orlando For Personal Reasons

Last we saw the Minnesota Timberwolves, they were the latest victim of "Linsanity". As coach Rick Adelman's crew looks to snap a three-game losing streak tonight against the Orlando Magic, the T-Wolves will find themselves down a sturdy rotation player. Point guard Luke Ridnour is set to miss the game for personal reasons, according to Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune:

Ridnour is having another solid season for the T-Wolves, but he hasn't scored more than eight points in his last four games. With Ridnour out, star rookie Ricky Rubio will presumably be asked to carry a bigger load. For Minnesota fans, that could mean good things.
