That is from the official Twitterfeed of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Ricky Rubio has been out since March. He tore his ACL in a game against the Los Angeles Lakers while defending Kobe Bryant. He was cleared to practice in late November and it set the stage for his return later on tonight against the Dallas Mavericks.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are actually doing pretty well at 11-9. They have been starting Luke Ridnour at the point guard spot and he’s filled in pretty well, averaging 11.9 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 4.2 assists. I assume they’re going to bring in Rubio slowly so Ridnour will probably start the next few games until then.

Rubio’s court vision and excellent passing are hard to beat, though. He also plays very good defense at the point guard spot with his length that can disrupt the opposing ballhandlers. While he’s not the greatest three-point shooter (shot .340 from behind the arc last season), he can keep the defenders honest enough. One notable three-pointer was when he made a game-tying three against the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center (Kevin Love would eventually win it for Minnesota with a three-pointer of his own).

While Minnesota is good, they have a chance to be very good with Rubio. The Wolves were 21-20 and contending for a playoff spot with Rubio but went 5-20 the rest of the way as injuries to Rubio and Kevin Love doomed the team.

Ricky Rubio averaged 10.6 points, 8.2 assists, and 2.2 steals in his rookie season. He finished second overall in the Rookie of the Year race last season to the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Kyrie Irving. Rubio was picked 5th in the 2009 NBA Draft by Minnesota but stayed in Spain for two more years before finally making his debut with the Timberwolves in the 2011-12 campaign.
