Ricky… you got some playing to do…
Our friend Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN is reporting that Ricky Rubio will return to action Saturday night at home against the Dallas Mavericks:
A league source told 1500ESPN.com that Rubio will play on Saturday at Target Center against Dallas.
Rubio is returning from torn anterior cruciate and lateral collateral ligaments in his left knee that he suffered last March.
The source said the Wolves, while busy receiving trade calls, are reluctant to make any move before they see Rubio with the rest of the team.
I talked to a couple people after Wolfson’s story was posted and they’ve basically said as long as nothing bad happens with Ricky in the next couple of days, they’d be shocked if he didn’t make his debut against the Mavericks. So nothing is a given right now but it’s looking good.
