Portugal Rui Patricio World Cup Jersey .Rubio was injured in the fourth quarter of Saturday nights loss to the Sacramento Kings. He met with doctors for an MRI on Monday evening, and the test confirmed the teams initial diagnosis of a sprain. With nothing broken, Rubio likely will only have to miss one to three weeks.Rubio is an integral part of a young Wolves team trying to end a 12-year playoff drought. His veteran leadership, passing and defense are needed on a team that has started the season 0-2.With Rubio sidelined, rookie backup Kris Dunn is in line to start the home opener on Tuesday night against Memphis.Next man up, Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau said when asked if Dunn was ready to start this early in his tenure. You dont get here by accident. Youre here, youre a great player, get in there and get the job done.Dunn was the fifth overall pick out of Providence in June and has impressed Thibodeau early with his defensive acumen. The demanding coach has said that the 22-year-old Dunn is NBA-ready from a defensive perspective right now, and he lauded his young point guards effort on that end through the first two games.The bigger challenge for all rookie point guards is organizing and running an offense. With Karl-Anthony Towns, Zach LaVine and Andrew Wiggins at his disposal, it would be up to Dunn to keep the mouths fed and the ball moving if he has to step in for Rubio for any stretch of time.Defensively hes done a lot of good things and I think the more experience he gets the better hes going to play, Thibodeau said. Hes learning. Hes getting better each day. There will be some ups and downs, but his intensity will cover up for things.Dunn said getting those first two games on the road under his belt has helped him adjust to the speed of the NBA game, particularly in the fourth quarter.Ive been playing in some tough situations the last two games and those are the type of games I like to play in, Dunn said. If Ricky doesnt have the chance to play tomorrow night or any other games that go further along, I just have to step up and be ready. Red World Cup Portugal Jerseys . -- Anaheim Ducks captain and leading scorer Ryan Getzlaf has been scratched from Sunday nights game against the Vancouver Canucks because of an upper-body injury. Portugal Manuel Fernandes World Cup Jersey . MORITZ, Switzerland -- Fog prevented downhill racers from getting their Olympic dress rehearsal. .S. Open champion Justin Rose birdied the first hole with a blind shot he hit to a foot of the pin, and he stayed in front Tuesday until he completed a 4-under 67 for a two-shot lead over Jason Dufner in PGA Grand Slam of Golf. FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots and starting right tackle Marcus Cannon have agreed to a five-year contract extension, sources told ESPN on Tuesday.Cannon, who was scheduled for unrestricted free agency after the season, has turned in arguably the best performance of his six-year career. Primarily a top backup in his first five seasons in New England who had proved to be a capable fill-in starter, Cannon has become a full-time starter in 2016 with veteran Sebastian Vollmer unavailable to play all season because of a hip injury.Cannon, 28, was recently lauded by veteran offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia for altering his style of play.The improvement weve noticed has really been this year. We asked him to play a different way and do things differently, Scarnecchia said. Hes such a good guy, he really tries to do them that way, and I think hes made great strides.Hes a big man [6-foot-5, 335 pounds] that moves very well and uses his hands much better in pass protection. He can be a real force in the run game, so Im pleased with where he is. But neither one of us is satisfied, so we just keep moving forward.Asked to elaborate on how the Patriots have asked Cannon to play a different way, Scarnecchia exxplained the change is tied to his 34-inch arm length. Portugal Adrien Silva World Cup Jersey. He hasnt used his length, Scarnecchia said. His arms are really long, but he doesnt use them like a guy that has long arms needs to use them. The more you keep the defenders out and away from you, instead of letting them get into your body and grab things, the better off youre going to be at tackle. He seems to grasp that very well and embrace it. If he will continue to play that way, hell be fine. And he has been fine.Before the regular season, coach Bill Belichick also noted Cannons conditioning.Im sure you noticed in training camp how fit he looks. Hes really in good shape. This is the best condition hes been in since hes been here, Belichick said on 98.5 The Sports Hub. Not that hes ever been in bad condition, but Id say hes in real good condition now, and I think thats certainly helped his overall play and stamina.Cannon, who played at Texas Christian, entered the NFL as a 2011 fifth-round draft choice of the Patriots. He likely would have been drafted higher had he not had non-Hodgkin lymphoma leading into the draft.
