Ricky Rubio says he's sore from last night's return in Miami, but will play in tonight's game at Orlando.

Kevin Garnett will not. He is being rested on the second night of back-to-back games again and Adreian Payne will start at his power-forward spot tonight.

"It's sore but it felt good to be back out there, playing and winning," Rubio said about coming back from four games away injured in time for Tuesday's 103-91 victory at Miami.

He said he's on no specific limitations regarding minutes, etc.

"It defends how it goes," he said. "My body is a little sore, but I'm going to be out there helping the team."

He said after Tuesday's game that he's not 100 percent. Asked before Wednesday's game how close he is to being fully healthy, he said, "I don't know. I can't tell. It goes by feeling. I know sometimes it is more mentally when you get hurt: You don't want to get hurt again so you go a little slower. But like I said, I'm ready to help my team."
