From our Wolves:
The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced that guard Ricky Rubio has been cleared to participate in full-contact practices with no limitations after consultation with Dr. Richard Steadman in Vail, Colorado. With the final medical hurdle being cleared, Rubio will now practice with the team. Rubio and the Wolves medical staff will assess his ability to participate in an NBA game after monitoring his progress during these practices.
But considering the intensity of his backyard wrestling bouts, this probably comes as no surprise. This means that we might just see Ricky Rubio in an NBA basketball game in the coming weeks. What version of himself he’ll be when that day comes remains to be seen.
