Timberwolves Ricky Rubio Close to Returning
According to Timberwolves beat writer Jerry Zgoda, Point Guard Ricky Rubio is ahead of schedule and may return within the next few weeks. In the Star Tribune Zgoda says:
David Kahn said he still isn’t putting a timetable on Rubio’s return, as he hasn’t done all along.
But there’s no question Rubio’s return is getting closer, maybe closer than expected, particularly if you weren’t expecting him back until Christmas or later.
He’s been working out quite vigorously on his own before games — just saw him working up a sweat shooting and doing other drills — and it’s certainly possible he could be back in a game perhaps even sometime that first week of December, or shortly thereafter..
The Twolves have recently welcome All-Star Power Forward Kevin Love back into the lineup and will need a healthy Rubio if they hope to contend in the always tough Western Conference.
