Love smiled and nodded his head Sunday when asked if he had followed Rubio’s contract negotiations. “He did great. I was very happy for him,” Love said as he gestured toward teammate Anderson Varejao sitting in the stall next to him. “We talked about it in here; Andy and him have the same agent in [Dan] Fegan and I thought [Fegan] really did a great job, and I was happy for Ricky.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Saunders said he’s hopeful Rubio can get on the practice court for 5-on-0 offensive work with teammates by Christmas. “He’s telling me he thinks he can play on Christmas Day,” Saunders said. “That’s not going to happen. But he’s coming. He has sped up [his recovery time] a little bit.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Injured Ricky Rubio has progressed to running extensively on an anti-gravity treadmill that takes the weight off his legs and healing ankle and Friday rebounded for teammates at shootaround. “He’s anxious, he’s chomping at the bit,” said Saunders, who added Rubio probably will be evaluated while on his own weight midway through next week.

Ricky Rubio is dreaming of an active Christmas. It is a wish based more on emotion than fact, of course. The point guard is two weeks removed from a very nasty left ankle sprain suffered in Orlando. He is rehabbing the ankle two, sometimes three times a day. There has been no definite timetable established for his return. But a guy can dream. “I don’t know,” said Rubio, with crutches and a walking boot, after the Timberwolves practiced Thursday. “Maybe January or Christmas. My family is coming for Christmas, so I hope they can see me playing. But I don’t know the time.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Rubio said that while he will push his rehab hard, he will not go overboard; he was cleared to do some light walking the other day. But after walking around at home that night he awoke the next day with more swelling and soreness. “I’ll push hard, but there are limits,” he said. “I always want to go fast, but at the same time I want to make sure the steps I’m taking forward are the right steps. And, first of all, I want to make sure that my ankle is safe and I can play again.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune
