Live Rock Rubble

I have live rock rubble that is uncured.

Is there an issue adding small amounts to the established system without curing it first?

You have enough rock. A little in the fuge should be fine.

Edit: If you have a sump just dump the rest in there. And such a young tank you will likely have a mini cycle.
