I know, I know, this doesn't pertain to the Nets, Knicks, Lakers, or Heat. Anyways, nice boost for the Wolves in a couple of weeks when they start giving him some minutes. A couple weeks ahead of the timeline initially provided.

Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio has been cleared to participate in full-contact practices with no limitations, the team said Wednesday, Nov. 28.

After consultation with Dr. Richard Steadman in Vail, Colo., Rubio will begin practicing with the team. Rubio and the Wolves medical staff will assess his ability to participate in an NBA game after monitoring his progress during these practices.

I would guess 2 weeks before game action. Probably comes off the bench, 15-20 mpg. By Jan, starting, 25-30 mpg. Feb, 32 mpg or so.

you can make a thread about anything, as long as it doesn't break rules, and if nobody cares, it dies quickly.....

Not sure why so many Lakers/Knicks/Nets/Heat fans in particular cry about a thread being made that doesn't involve their team...

Team "NBA League Pass" is almost back!
Can't wait to see how this team does after he's back.

On a side note, I love his new sneaker commercial. Very funny.

I couldn't believe the letdown in the media, and amongst the players when he went down last year. Rubio is one of the most fun players to watch in the league, and I am not being a homer at all saying that. Everytime he plays, he does something that makes you yell, "damn! that was ****ing amazing!"

I love Rubio, watching him makes me want to go play some ball immediately after the game.
I wish him all the best and a speedy recovery.

haha sometimes he just misses a contested layup, and it even hits rim...

Seriously though I cant wait until he's back even in a limited role. Even if hes at half speed out there it will still improve our backcourt defense. Also very excited to see what our team is really like when hes fully healthy .

This is so exciting, Kevin Love has returned looking like he hasn't lost a step and Ricky Rubio coming back will finally show us how far this Timberwolves team can ago. Albeit, not too far, but a playoff berth sure would be cool. The wolves are a fun team to watch with Rubio playing.

Haha but yeah International Icon Ricky Rubio is a lot of fun to watch and on both ends of the court.

for sure. If he can even become an average, or even slightly below average scorer (jumper and finisher), he enters the top 10 PG convo immediately.
