Ricky Rubio may or may not return to Minnesota Timberwolves; having been cleared to play against the Dallas Mavericks Monday night, the outcome of which will decide whether he will continue playing for the Timberwolves.
Ever since Rubio severely injured his left ankle on November 7th, he has missed 43 games. Without Rubio, the wolves fell to the bottom of the league. After Saturday night’s loss of 106-90 against the Cleveland Cavaliers, they fell down to 8-39. After Rubio’s return, the team is planning to limit the time he spends on the court in order to see how his ankle is responding.
Coach Saunders said, “Rubio has seen three specialists, and all have cleared him for Monday, should the exam reveals everything is OK. He’s been given the go ahead to play for a limited time. We are all waiting for Monday”.
