Ricky Rubio to Return in December?
Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor knows what Spain was missing at the London Olympics, having to play basketball without Ricky Rubio. The Wolves are expecting to start the season without their second-year point guard, as well.
Taylor said he could only guess when Rubio will be healthy enough to play after coming off March knee surgery. The Wolves will open the season Nov. 2.
“The doctors said he was progressing faster than normal, and normal was supposed to be in January,” Taylor said Tuesday, Aug. 14, a day before heading to China on a two-week charity mission. “Faster than normal would be December. He’s going to start running and stuff in a few weeks.”
