Saturday night's alright for fighting -- and for Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio's season debut.

A league source told KSTP that Rubio will play on Saturday at Target Center against Dallas.

Rubio is returning from torn anterior cruciate and lateral collateral ligaments in his left knee that he suffered last March.

The source said the Wolves, while busy receiving trade calls, are reluctant to make any move before they see Rubio with the rest of the team.

The Wolves announced via Twitter that Rubio's debut wouldn't come on Wednesday night against Denver.
