In the background Luke is actually bouncing a ball around, without ever touching it, has some sort of forcefield around his hands. Seriously, look at his left hand and that ball. The Force is with him.

Injured Ricky Rubio accompanied the team to Indianapolis. Adelman prefers Rubio be around the team as much as the doctors will allow him to rehab on the road, even though Adelman had to intervene when Rubio wanted to join his teammates for a half-court shooting contest during Friday's morning shootaround.

"I could just see the headlines, 'Ricky Rubio Hurt Shooting Half-Court Shot for Money,'" Adelman said. "I said, 'Don't think that's a good idea.' I don't want that on me."

I just imagined Adelman as a strict father figure who grounded Rubio :lol:

Adelman said Ricky Rubio is set to see the doctor for a checkup in a few weeks. Rubio's rehab is on schedule, Adelman said.

http://probasketballtalk.nbcsports.com/ ... -recovery/

Ricky Rubio tore his ACL in March. Derrick Rose tore his in April. Both players are point guards who their teams desperately need back on the floor, both face an excruciating journey back to the court. It’s not a race between the two, as the two teams aren’t in the same division, the two aren’t in direct competition for anything, and the two teams aren’t fighting for the same things. But it is notable that, via the Chicago Tribune, Rose is ahead of Rubio’s recovery schedule.
“It’s a tough injury,” Rubio said. “You are like six, eight, nine months without playing your favorite sport. Sometimes it’s just playing basketball where you forget about everything and just enjoy it. I just wish him a healthy recovery.”

Like Rose, Rubio has yet to start cutting. Unlike Rose, who started shooting jumpers weeks ago, Rubio is just progressing from set shots.

“Nobody had the same injury,” Rubio said. “I mean, a little more meniscus or two ligaments or just one. Every player is different. Every recovery is different.”



It’s nice that Rubio has so much empathy for Rose and that they can talk about what they’re going through.

It’s not a huge warning sign or even necessarily a warning sign that Rose is ahead of Rubio despite being a month behind chronologically. The body heals differently, and if it takes longer for Rubio, it takes longer. The focus is on his career, not this season, and Rubio’s still expected to be back in December, along with Kevin Love when his hand heals.

But if you’re factoring in conditioning time to get back up to speed and the curve for getting back to 85 or 90 percent once he’s back playing regularly, might want to pump the brakes a bit. And if not, at least give Rose props for his work to get this far.
