REPORT: Ricky Rubio Set to Return to Action on Thursday


Ricky Rubio could reportedly return to the Cleveland Cavaliers lineup as soon as Thursday when the Cavs play the Trail Blazers, according to NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

If all goes well when Rubio practices with the team on Wednesday, then he will play against Portland, per Woj. The Cavs (26-16) will welcome Rubio’s vaunted playmaking abilities and veteran presence on a team looking to lock in their playoff spot after All-Star weekend. Before he tore his ACL, Rubio helped lead Cleveland to a 20-14 start.

When he was last healthy, Rubio averaged 13.1 points, 6.6 assists, and 4.1 rebounds per game. Rubio is known as one of the most popular teammates in the NBA and was a close friend of Donovan Mitchell while they played on the Utah Jazz.
