At one point in his first real practice in nine months, Ricky Rubio zipped a pass through defender Josh Howard’s legs to an open teammate.
It may take some time for his surgically repaired left knee to get back up to speed. The instincts and court vision that made him such a crucial part of the resurgent Minnesota Timberwolves haven’t gone anywhere as far as Rick Adelman is concerned.
Rubio practiced on Sunday for the first time this season and said his knee responded well. There is still no timetable for his first game, and Rubio is trying to be patient to make sure that he is completely ready when he does return after the first major injury of his career.
