Rubio, who missed the Wolves' last two games with soreness in his left ankle, was able to participate fully in Monday's session, and looks to be ready to reclaim his starting point guard role. The Timberwolves should formally clarify whether or not Rubio will be available following pregame warmups, but as of now, it looks like Zach LaVine, who has performed well in his starting opportunities in place of Rubio this season, will head back to a reserve role.
Rich Clune was recalled by the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday.
Joffrey Lupul (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, so Clune will replace him on Toronto's 23-man roster as a depth forward. The 28-year-old winger has suited up for two games with the Leafs this season, registering five PIM and one shot on goal in those contests.
Josh McCown (broken collarbone) will not play again this season, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
The news was confirmed by Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine, who chose not to disclose whether Austin Davis or Johnny Manziel will be the replacement. Davis filled in capably during the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Ravens, but he doesn't offer much in the way of long-term upside. On the other hand, Manziel has made major strides since last season, but his recent off-field controversy led Pettine to drop him from first to third on the depth chart.
Aaron Brooks (hamstring) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice, but will most likely sit out on Wednesday against the Nuggets, Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports.
Brooks has missed five of the last six contests for the Chicago Bulls , battling a strain in his left hamstring. With Kirk Hinrich (hip) likely to miss Wednesday's game as well, E'Twaun Moore will likely pick up the lion's share of the minutes at backup point guard.
Andre Ellington (toe) is merely considered day-to-day, but his availability for Sunday's game against the Rams remains in serious question, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
With Chris Johnson (leg) potentially out for the rest of the regular season, Ellington could find his way to an increased role in the coming weeks, if he's able to get healthy. However, his injury history is far from encouraging, and the recovery time from turf toe can vary from a few days to multiple months. For Week 13, it appears David Johnson will lead the Arizona backfield, though Ellington hasn't yet been ruled out.
