If the NBA season starts on time, Ricky Rubio's regular-season debut will come at Target Center.

The Minnesota Timberwolves' schedule, released on Tuesday afternoon, begins with a home game against the Atlanta Hawks on Nov. 2.

However, the NBA lockout has the start of the season highly in doubt, leaving it unclear when the Spanish sensation Rubio and his new teammates actually will take the floor.

Other highlights on the Wolves' schedule include home games against the world champion Dallas Mavericks on Dec. 23 and Feb. 3 and LeBron James' Miami Heat on March 13.

The Wolves have four scheduled national television games: Nov. 25 against Kevin McHale, Jonny Flynn and the Houston Rockets on ESPN2; and Dec. 21 against Phoenix, Jan. 25 at Boston and at Portland on March 3 on NBATV.
