Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio returned to practice on Friday after missing the last five games with a sprained right elbow.
Rubio stayed in the Twin Cities to rehab his injury during the team’s recent three-game road trip. The Timberwolves have a rare home back-to-back with the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night and the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night. If Rubio responds well after the workout, coach Tom Thibodeau said he could return to the court this weekend.
