well is it not spinning due to the rim hitting the brakepads, the hub completly locked up or what? I have had my chain come off and wrap itself around my fixed cog causing it to lockup. I have also had my axel slip in the dropouts and thus locking up my wheel. I would look at the hub and the brakes. your rim in itself doesn't really have anything to do with the way your wheel spins. Unless of course it's just wrecked.

Take the wheel off and inspect the hub.

If it is is loose ball then you need to adjust the cones on the hub. However on most hubs you need to remove the freewheel to do this. So if you do not have a remover tool, then a trip to your LBS is in order.
