Rubio missed 42 games because of the injury. Friday night's win over Memphis was his third game back.

The Timberwolves say he hasn't been cleared to play in back-to-back games, and they host Atlanta on Monday night.

Rubio led Minnesota to a victory Friday, but he appeared to tweak the ankle in the fourth quarter. He was able to return to that game.
