“We’ll see how he feels tomorrow,” Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau said. “He moved great (today). . .

He brings a lot of energy,” Thibodeau said.
Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio returned to practice on Friday after missing the last five games with a sprained right elbow. Coach Tom Thibodeau says Rubio looked sharp in practice. If he feels good when he wakes up on Saturday, he could play in the game that night against the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced that Ricky Rubio underwent an evaluation this evening by team orthopedic surgeon Diane Dahm of Mayo Clinic which confirmed the initial diagnosis of a sprained right elbow. Rubio will be listed as out indefinitely and his status will be updated as appropriate. Rubio suffered the injury at the 6:28 mark of the fourth quarter of Minnesota’s 106-103 loss at Sacramento on Saturday.
Ricky Rubio did not practice on Monday because of a sprained right elbow and was scheduled to meet with a doctor later in the day to try to determine the extent of his injury. Rubio was injured in the second half of Saturday night’s loss to the Sacramento Kings, and coach Tom Thibodeau said Monday that they would have to wait for the doctor to evaluate an MRI exam before they knew more about a timeline for his recovery.
