    Ricky Rubio (left hand) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Magic.

    Rubio must have picked up the injury sometime during Monday's come-from-behind victory over the Hornets. If Rubio can't go, Tyler Johnson may get the start with Jevon Carter seeing extra minutes behind him.

    Ricky Rubio (back spasms) has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Pelicans.

    Rubio has been struggling with this back issue since missing Monday's game. With Rubio inactive, Tyler Johnson will start in his place. Devin Booker will be a primary ball handler and we'll see some extra run out of Jevon Carter.

    Ricky Rubio (back spasms) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Pelicans, according to head coach Monty Williams.

    Rubio tried to give it a go on Tuesday but was unable to finish the game due to this injury. It sounds like Rubio will warm-up and decide if he is ready to go. Jevon Carter and Elie Okobo will likely see additional minutes if Rubio is forced to sit out. Booker will take over some of the ball-handling and had 8 assists on Tuesday.

    Ricky Rubio is doubtful to face the Pelicans on Thursday due to back spasms.

    Rubio tried to give it a go on Tuesday but was unable to finish the game due to this injury. He has been a tremendous addition to this roster this season, running the offense with great success. Expect Tyler Johnson, Jevon Carter and Elie Okobo to see additional minutes for as long as Rubio is forced to sit out.

  • Elie Okobo

    Elie Okobo received some extra minutes on Tuesday and he provided four points (0-of-3 FGs, 4-of-6 FTs), two rebounds and five assists in 18 minutes.

    Ricky Rubio (back spasms) had to take a seat after the first half causing Okobo to get his extra run. Even if Rubio misses more time, it's hard to trust Okobo to even replicate this performance. Jevon Carter picked up a DNP-CD, but he could play on Thursday, and it was Tyler Johnson that started the second half tonight. Though Johnson had a tough night with just two points, three rebounds and three assists in 18 minutes.

    The Suns are listing Ricky Rubio (back spasms) as questionable for Tuesday's matchup with the Kings.

    Rubio was a lasst-minute scratch on Monday with the back spasms coming out of nowhere. It seems that Rubio is in danger of missing both games to start the week. Jevon Carter would likely get the spot start again while rotating with Tyler Johnson.

    Jevon Carter drew the start for an injured Ricky Rubio (back spasms) on Monday and produced a well-rounded, albeit low-end line of thre points, two rebounds, two assists, one steal, one triple and two blocks in 24 minutes of action.

    Carter has not made fantasy waves since the end of October, but is worth an add for streaming purposes while Rubio is on the shelf.

    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Jevon Carter had a solid outing on Monday, scoring 15 points on 4-of-11 shooting to go with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

    Ricky Rubio starting tonight should have been the death knell for Carter's fantasy value, but he played well and even closed out the game tonight. He got absolutely torched by Donovan Mitchell in the final possession, but he's definitely worth monitoring in deeper leagues if he can get consistent playing time. Mikal Bridges (zero points, one rebound, one assist and one steal) is in a major slump right now and is bordering the drop zone.

    Jevon Carter started in place of injured Ricky Rubio (left knee contusion) and scored eight points in 33 minutes in Saturday's win over the Clippers.

    Carter played well, adding three rebounds, six assists and three steals. Though this was a spot start he played very well and should see an uptick in minutes. Though he should not be owned in any leagues he may be worth keeping tabs on if Rubio's injury remains persistent.

    Jevon Carter will start on Saturday vs. the Clippers with Ricky Rubio out with a left knee contusion.

    Rubio's knee is still swollen and will likely test out his knee for the next game. Carter will share minutes with Tyler Johnson at the point guard. He is still only a deep-league target.

    Ricky Rubio (left knee contusion) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Clippers.

    Rubio downplayed the injury but it seems to be painful enough to cost him a game. Rubio will look to rest up and be ready for Monday's game versus the Jazz. Jevon Carter and Tyler Johnson will see extended run and share the point guard duties.

    Jevon Carter made his Suns debut on Wednesday, logging 18 minutes and chipping in 11 points, three assists, a block and three 3-pointers.

    Carter was the clear backup point guard on the night, but that is expected to change when Ty Jerome gets healthy. For now, Carter's defensive tenacity gives him a feasible pathway to staying on the floor, which puts him on watch lists in 20-team leagues.

  • Ty Jerome
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ty Jerome led the Suns' reserve guards in a win over the Wolves on Tuesday as he dished out four assists and missed just one of his seven shots, good for 12 points in 23 minutes.

    The Suns have a ton of backup guards, and the next best after Jerome was Elie Okobo with 13 points (6-of-8 FGs) in 13 minutes. Jevon Carter predictably had three steals in 20 minutes, and Tyler Johnson had nothing but four missed shots and a steal in 15 minutes. Once the starters are playing starters' minutes, it's going to be nearly impossible for any of these reserve players to get enough action to be fantasy considerations.

    Jevon Carter will be traded to the Suns when the personnel moratorium is lifted.

    Carter was thought to be NBA-ready coming out of the draft but didn't really impress in his 39 games with the Grizzlies last season, who swap him out for the higher upside of De'Anthony Melton in this deal. In Phoenix, Carter will have to split time with Ty Jerome and Elie Okobo behind Ricky Rubio, and while his defensive tenacity can give him a leg up it's not a situation that will lead to fantasy value.
