This was hinted a couple of days ago by Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune. But now he’s cleared to do full-contact practices. So playing games could only be a short time away.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are 6-7 and are not playing that well. They broke their five-game losing streak last night after they won at Sacramento behind the strength of Kevin Love’s 21 points and 24 rebounds. They’re still missing Chase Budinger, who recently had knee surgery and could be out ’til February of next year. But Rubio coming back will give the Wolves a boost.

The Wolves had been starting Luke Ridnour at the point guard spot, who has done a pretty good job as he is averaging 11.2 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 4.4 assists. But Rubio’s masterful court vision and fantastic passing are hard to beat. He is one of the best at setting his teammates up. Not only that but he plays very good defense at the point guard spot as his wiry arms can disrupt any ballhandler. His shot needs work but he can keep defenses a little honest with his three-point shot.

Ricky Rubio averaged 10.6 points, 8.2 assists, and 2.2 steals last season in 41 games. He was the only legitimate challenger to Kyrie Irving in last year’s Rookie of the Year race but he tore his ACL last March in a game against the Los Angeles Lakers while defending Kobe Bryant. Minnesota took him with the 5th pick overall in 2009 but also took another point guard in Jonny Flynn with the very next pick (6th overall) in case Rubio couldn’t get to the NBA that season. They were right as Rubio stayed in Spain before he made his way to the U.S. to play in the NBA for the 2011-12 campaign. Rubio was also the back-up point guard for Spain in the 2008 Olympics.
