UPDATE 7:17 p.m.: Ricky Rubio will play but is probably limited to 20 minutes. Mo Williams will play. Zach LaVine will not play. Chandler Parsons will play.


Ricky Rubio has been sidelined since Nov. 7, when he suffered a sprained left ankle against the Orlando Magic. It was reported over the weekend that Rubio will make his return Monday night against the Mavericks. In Rubio's absence, the Timberwolves used Zach LaVine, Mo Williams, and even Lorenzo Brown as their starting point guard. Rubio is officially listed as probable but expect him to play tonight.

On the other hand, both LaVine and Williams are listed as questionable and missed Saturday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. LaVine, who is slated to appear in the dunk contest later this month, is dealing with a sprained left ankle and Williams has a sore left hip.

Robbie Hummel and Shabazz Muhammad are also out tonight for the Wolves.

As for the Mavericks, it was reported that Rajon Rondo will miss at least three games, including Monday's, with facial fractures.

Chandler Parsons missed the previous two games against the Magic and Miami Heat with an illness. He is officially listed as questionable but is eyeing a return tonight.

We'll update this post when official news is released.
