    Ricky Rubio approached a triple-double on Thursday against the Knicks, with 25 points, eight rebounds, 13 assists and four steals.

    Rubio was a huge producer in this big win, tying a season-high with 25. He's one of the best mid-round point guard options because he's so stable as an assist master. He will continue to be a great contributor across the board even if he struggles with his shot.

    Ricky Rubio (personal) is back with the Suns after missing Tuesday's game.

    Rubio was away for the birth of his child, and it sounds like everything went well. Congratulations to the Rubio family, and he's a nice play against a bad Knicks team and might just have a little extra pep in his step, too.

    Ricky Rubio (personal) is expected to rejoin the team ahead of Thursday's game vs. the Knicks.

    Rubio was away from the team as he was awaiting the birth of his child. It appears as if he will be back for Thursday's game but continue to monitor the wire for confirmation.

    Ricky Rubio will miss Tuesday's game against the Hawks as he awaits the birth of his child.

    With Rubio out, Elie Okobo is expected to draw the start, while there will be more minutes to go around for Tyler Johnson, Jevon Carter and Mikal Bridges. Okobo is worth a streaming look in this easy matchup, but it's worth noting that Devin Booker is set up to be the primary playmaker for this game.

    Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Monty Williams said that he expects Ricky Rubio to miss Tuesday's game against the Hawks as he tends to a personal issue, and Elie Okobo would likely take his place in the starting unit.

    The good news is that Rubio's absence is not injury-related, and he will be ready as soon as he is back with the team. It's unclear how long he will be out, but it doesn't seem like a major issue. In addition to Okobo, there will be more minutes to go around for Jevon Carter and Tyler Johnson and Mikal Bridges, while Devin Booker takes on more playmaking responsibility.

    Ricky Rubio (personal) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Hawks.

    Rubio hasn't shot the ball well lately, but he continues to deliver in the assists and steals categories. If he cannot play on Tuesday, Elie Okobo will see more opportunities.

    Ricy Rubio had 11 points (2-for-9 shooting), 10 assists, seven rebounds, three steals and a block in Friday's win over the Magic.

    Rubio has had a much better season in Phoenix than he had in Utah last season and that continued on Friday. Despite the poor shooting, he contributes in enough different categories each night to stay relevant even when his shot abandons him.

  • Devin Booker
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    Devin Booker shot 12-of-21 from the field and 8-of-8 from the line on Tuesday in a loss to the Kings, putting up a game-high 34 points with four rebounds, seven assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

    It's rare to see a high-volume shooting guard hit more than half of his shots for the season, and this improvement in Booker's game is the main cause of his jump into the top-20/30 (8-cat/9-cat). Ricky Rubio had a typical line tonight with eight points, five rebounds, nine assists, one steal and one triple in 35 minutes.

    Ricky Rubio played through left hip soreness on Friday and put up nine points, four rebounds, 10 assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

    It certainly didn't look like Rubio was less than 100 percent, but it's still nice to see him posting a typical line just the same. We had some concerns about his fit in Phoenix but Rubio has delivered an outstanding bounceback campaign and is comfortably posting middle-round value.

    Ricky Rubio (left hip soreness) is active for when the Suns square off against the Knicks on Friday.

    After taking part in shootaround it was expected that Rubio would take the floor. Get him out there, although he may have a tougher time than usual offensively if Frank Ntilikina is the starting point guard for the Knicks. The usual starting point guard, Elfrid Payton (personal), is uncertain.

    Ricky Rubio (left hip soreness) went through Friday morning's shootaround in preparation for the Suns' upcoming matchup vs. the Knicks.

    Rubio was probable coming into this one and this is just one more reason to think that he'll play. He was though to be missing much more time than he actually will be so owners should be ecstatic.

    Ricky Rubio (left hip soreness) is officially probable for Friday's matchup against the Knicks.

    Rubio left Wednesday's game in the first quarter and it appeared as if he might miss additional time as a result of his most recent ailment. However, the probable tag leads us to believe that there is a high likelihood that he will play in the Suns' next contest. It might be wise to steer clear of Rubio when it comes to building a DFS lineup for Friday's six-game card.

    General Manager James Jones spoke on a local Phoenix radio station and said "Ricky Rubio felt good and moved fine today. Said the hope and expectation is that Rubio will be able to play tomorrow."

    Rubio left Wednesday's contest in visible pain but it appears as if he won't miss much time at all. He is somewhere between questionable and probable for Friday's contest and we will learn more when the team releases their official injury report.

    Ricky Rubio was in a lot of pain as he limped off to the locker room in Wednesday's game vs. the Lakers.

    Rubio leaves with just over four minutes left in the game, making it unlikely for him to return. He logged six points on 2-of-7 shooting with five rebounds, nine assists, one 3-pointer and one steal. If he misses time, expect the Suns to use a point guard by-committee with Elie Okobo, Tyler Johnson and Jevon Carter.

    Ricky Rubio successfully quarterbacked the Suns' offense for a 122-116 win over the Blazers on Monday, setting the pace with 18 points (7-of-13 shooting), 13 dimes, five rebounds, one 3-pointer and one steal.

    Rubio is still rolling, flirting with top-50 to top-60 value over the season. His game is tailor-made for the Suns' style of play, so expect him to follow through with this kind of line ROS.
