Ricky Rubio: (Knee) Aiming for Saturday Return

Rotowire.com
Update: Rubio (knee) is staying behind in Minnesota for Friday's game in New Orleans, as he is likely aiming for a return to action Saturday against Dallas, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Recommendation: The thinking is that Rubio will get a night of rest and a day to go about his typical routine devoid of any travel through the air. Furthermore, the Timberwolves would like him to avoid playing in back-to-backs when he is able to take the court, so a home debut is the preferable option. Still, it's unclear if he will in fact return Saturday.
