Ricky Rubio Injury: Timberwolves PG Reportedly Ahead of Schedule, Will Partake In Training Camp

Although he has been forced to sit on the sidelines while his teammates have taken part in the 2012 Summer Olympics, Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio is ahead of schedule in his rehab according to the Star Tribune's Jerry Zgoda, and is expected to be back in some capacity for training camp:

Even though there's a fine line between simply running through a few passing drills and going through a full-blown 5-on-5 scrimmage, it's promising enough that Rubio hasn't suffered any setbacks in his recovery, let alone that he's ahead of his projected timetable. The T-Wolves need every last ounce of his quickness and ball handling skills this season to take the next step as a team, but all indications right now seem to point that he'll be close to 100% to open the year.
