  • Ricky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz

    Should Ricky Rubio not remain with the Jazz next season, there will be more than one potential landing spot for the Spaniard point guard.

    Rubio averaged 12.7 points, 3.6 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 1.3 steals in 27.9 minutes and 68 games, shooting 40.4 percent from the field, 31.1 percent from deep and 85.5 percent from the free-throw line. Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey was not enthusiastic about the possibility of Rubio returning to the team next season with the Pacers, the Bulls and the Suns looking like potential landing spots if he decides to walk.

    Speaking at the exit interview on Thursday Ricky Rubio said, "I honestly have no idea. … It depends on a lot of things. … I'm gonna look for the best situation for me with the coach and the team…"

    Earlier in the interview, Rubio mentioned how the trade rumors that were leaked got to him. We'll have to wait and see how the market shapes up in the offseason, but it's possible that Rubio could be wearing a new jersey come next fall.

  • Ricky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz

    Ricky Rubio scored 17 points (7-of-15 shooting) to go with 11 assists, two rebounds and three steals in Wednesday's Game 5 loss in Houston.

    Rubio turned it up a notch over his last two games, double-doubling in both, but his efforts were not enough to extend the series past Game 5. The free-agent PG will now head into an off season where there will be questions abound about who the Jazz should pair with Donovan Mitchell for the long term.

    Ricky Rubio scored 18 points on 6-of-17 shooting while adding 11 assists, three rebounds, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer in Game 4 on Monday.

    Rubio played much better defense on Houston's guards tonight but was still unable to stretch the floor with his shooting as he went 1-for-7 from deep. If he can make incremental improvements on his defensive assignment while hitting a couple more triples, the Jazz have a good shot at extending this series.

  • Ricky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz

    Ricky Rubio finished Saturday's Game 3 defeat with 10 points, four rebounds, six assists and two steals in 31 minutes.

    Rubio clanked both of his threes, and Utah's misses on open looks have effectively cost them the series at this point. He also deployed the bold tactic of playing on James Harden's back outside the 3-point line to try and force him into Rudy Gobert's help at the bucket, but Harden got just enough whistles to keep Utah at bay. We'll see if the Jazz tweak the defense in Game 4 — most of the issues tonight were their own on offense. Rubio also committed a team-high five turnovers, with Utah letting a fantastic chance at a win slip through their fingers with some sloppy play and awful shooting.

  • Ricky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz

    Ricky Rubio put up 17 points with four rebounds, nine assists and four steals in a loss to the Rockets in Game 2 on Wednesday.

    He shot 7-of-17 from the field and had the unfortunate matchup against James Harden for much of this game. Harden hit him with a crossover that sent Rubio to the floor, but he missed the shot. The Jazz have been getting good performances from Rubio and Derrick Favors, but the inconsistent play from the remainder of their roster has left them with a two-game series deficit. The Jazz are heading back to Utah for Game 3 as they will try to steal their first game of the series.

  • Ricky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz

    Ricky Rubio put up 15 points with six assists on 5-of-11 shooting in a loss to the Rockets in Game 1 on Sunday.

    He added three rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer to the box score. Aside from Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert, Rubio might have been the most reliable offensive option, which is rare when Donovan Mitchell is playing. Rubio should produce near his season averages of 13 points and six assists throughout this series.

  • Ricky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz

    Both Ricky Rubio and Raul Neto are available in Sunday night's Game 1 clash against the Rockets.

    We can expect both Rubio and Neto available to be given their normal allotment of minutes, barring any setbacks. Rubio should have his hands full trying to contain Chris Paul, and if he can get through this game unscathed, it will bode well for the Jazz and their hopes of moving onto the second round.

    Ricky Rubio (right quad contusion) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Rockets.

    Rubio is a key piece for the Rockets in this series, as he will be deemed with the task of guarding James Harden. A probable listing is a good sign for the Jazz.

    Ricky Rubio (left quad contusion) went through portions of Friday’s practice as did Raul Neto (ankle).

    Rubio missed the last three games due to the quad injury and has been battling with this issue for much of the season. It’s good to see him participating in practice as the Jazz will need him as close to 100 percent as possible as they prepare for a tough matchup with the Rockets starting on Sunday. If he can’t play, look for Royce O’Neale to extended run defending James Harden.

    Ricky Rubio ends the 2018-19 season with 87/128 8/9-cat per-game value across 68 games played, missing the last game of the season with a left quad contusion.

    Rubio's injury-riddled season was due to a variety of injuries but what kept him away from the floor the most was a recurring hamstring soreness and tightness that he simply could not easily shake off. He regressed this season, seeing a 20-point drop, mostly dragged down by his .404 shooting and 12.5 points per game.

    Ricky Rubio (left quad contusion) will not suit up in Wednesday's matchup against the Clippers.

    With the 5th seed already locked up, the Jazz have no reason to rush any of their star players back from injury. Rubio hurt his quad in Friday's game against the Kings but expect him to be available for their first round matchup against either the Blazers or Rockets. In his absence, look for Royce O'Neale to get a lot of the point guard responsibility while Joe Ingles can also help run the offense.

    Ricky Rubio (left quad contusion) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets.

    Rubio has played just five minutes over the last three Jazz games. Royce O'Neale, Donovan Mitchell, and Joe Ingles should continue to handle the ball a bit more in his stead.

    Ricky Rubio (left quad contusion) will not play on Sunday against the Lakers.

    The nagging injuries have always been there in his career and it's disappointing how his hampers his game. Royce O'Neale will be feasting with the minutes that will be available for him since a lot of rotation of players from the team are out or questionable.

  • Ricky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz

    Ricky Rubio (left quad contusion) left Friday’s game vs. Kings in the first quarter and will not return.

    At least it wasn’t his hamstring. All kidding aside, Rubio has been banged up for the better part of two years and can’t seem to shake the nagging injuries. With Raul Neto and Dante Exum unavailable, look for Royce O’Neale to get more run. Rubio finished with four points, two rebounds and a turnover in five minutes of action.
