We're a little more than a month into the regular season, and quite a few players of fantasy significance have yet to play a minute. But that will change between now and the new year.
Minnesota's Ricky Rubio is practicing with the team and could return to action for the Wolves' Dec. 14 game against Denver. Coach Rick Adelman is expected to integrate Rubio back into the rotation gradually. I'm expecting something along the lines of what Adelman did in Rubio's rookie season, when he came off the bench initially and then took over the starting job.
Watch Adelman's substitution patterns closely when Rubio does return. The Wolves have a lot of options in the backcourt, and at least one of them is going to get the short end of the stick.
The Knicks' Amar'e Stoudemire and Iman Shumpert should be back soon after Rubio. STAT is reportedly targeting Christmas Day for his season debut, and Shump could be back in January.
