08:09 AM ET 12.11 | Sorry, Wolves fans -- it's time to reset the clock. Two weeks ago, the Timberwolves internally set Wednesday's game against Denver as the target date for Ricky Rubio's long-awaited return from March knee surgery. On Monday, coach Rick Adelman said he still doesn't know if Rubio will return against the Nuggets, Saturday against Dallas or somewhere there beyond. He said that decision will depend on strength and endurance testing of Rubio's left knee and a consensus between management and the medical staff about what's best given that the team will play four games in five nights -- three of them on the road -- after Wednesday's game. "He could go out and play some right now, but is that the smart thing to do?" Adelman asked.

If he can play, why not play him?......

Minn has no shot at a championship this year.

They should just rest Rubio for the rest of the season and have him come back next season 100% :-/ .......

If he can play, why not play him?Let him come back slow, but if it is structurally sound, its time to play him.....cause no matter what he will have to be transitioned in slow..no matter what hes going to be hurting...so lets get him out there already

to many good players came back to soon,, best to ease him in very slowly. Even waiting a yr wouuld be better then ending up like hardaway or hill

Better record Wolves or Lakers? And which player adds more upon his return (basketball skills only, no sports psychology)?
