Star Tribune basketball writer Jerry Zgoda has tweeted that Ricky Rubio will not participate in the NBA All-Star Game skills competition next weekend.
"Ricky says he won't participate in the All Star skills challenge. Didn't say why, just said he decided not to," Zgoda tweeted from this morning's practice.
Zgoda also tweeted about Rockets forward Luis Scola talking about Kevin Love's apology after stepping on Scola's face during a game earlier this month at Target center.
