Recommendation: The schedule would have Rubio practice three days next week and three or four the week after before playing in a game. That schedule could change based on how Rubio's knee responds to full practices. It's also possible his minutes could be limited early on as he's eased back into action. But barring a setback, he looks set to return in mid-December.
Update: Minnesota has outlined a schedule that would have Rubio (knee) return Dec. 12 if all goes well in his first full-contact practices after being cleared by doctors, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
