Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
There was speculation that Ricky might play on Wednesday vs. the Nuggets at the Target Center, however a few hours before tipoff head athletic trainer Gregg Farnam ruled him out.
Now, the TWolves play the Hornets in New Orleans on Friday. Rubio could play, however he's said he wants to make his debut at the Target Center in front of the TWolves faithful.
That means, barring any kind of setback--Ricky will play his first game of the 2012-13 campaign on Saturday night vs. the Dallas Mavericks at the Target Center.
It remains unseen whether or not he'll be placed directly into the starting lineup. Adelman could continue to start Ridnour and Lee and bring Ricky off the bench for the time being, perhaps Rick goes back to that Rubio-Ridnour lineup he used the majority of last season or (hopefully) we may get to see that Rubio-Shved backcourt. I'm thinking that Adelman decides to bring him off the bench for these first few games (if sitting on the bench following warmups doesn't make that knee 'stiff' or 'sore').
