Concerning Ricky Rubio’s potential return to action, the Cavaliers are not going to make any rash decisions.
When guard Ricky Rubio is finally ready to play in a game again
Cleveland Cavaliers will give him all the time he needs to prepare for the best possible comeback and give him all the support they can give him. Since December 2022, Rubio has been unable to play due to an injury stemming from a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament.
According to Cleveland.com, the Cavaliers are taking Rubio’s return to the court slowly and methodically in order to ensure that it will be as seamless as is humanly feasible. It is anticipated that the Spanish defender will make his debut for this season around the end of December or the beginning of January if his condition permits it.
“According to our sources, the Cavaliers are not planning to hasten his return. They are aware of the significant gap that exists between exercise fit and game shape, and they want to ensure that he is well prepared before making his first appearance in the NBA since last season.
It has been 11 months since Ricky Rubio sustained the serious injury that ultimately led to him being traded for Caris LeVert at the trade deadline of the previous season. This week marks the 11-month milestone since the injury occurred. If Rubio, who signed with Cleveland again as a free agency this summer, intends to make his return about one year after undergoing surgery, then he will do it in the latter part of December or the beginning of January at the earliest.

After being traded to the Indiana Pacers in February, Rubio re-signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers in the summer of 2018 on a deal for a total of 18 million dollars over the course of three years. Before he suffered the injury, he was enjoying some of the most productive basketball of his career in the NBA. He was averaging a career-high 13.1 points, in addition to 6.6 assists and 4.1 rebounds per game.
