  • Ricky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz

    Ricky Rubio (mild right hamstring strain) will be reevaluated in one week.

    The Jazz are extremely thin at guard, which means Donovan Mitchell will have to pick up the slack in an even higher volume. The fact the Jazz are listing his hamstring injury as mild is a positive sign, which means he should be held in all formats.

    Ricky Rubio's right hamstring strain is said to be mild and he will be re-evaluated in a week, with Tony Jones of The Athletic reporting that he may be able to beat today's earlier reports of a two-week timetable.

    Rubio's injury isn't as severe as initially thought, which is great news for the Jazz. Raul Neto is going to start for the next week at least and is worth a look if you need assists, while Donovan Mitchell should see some extra playmaking responsibilities as well. With positive updates continuing to come out on Rubio, he's looking like a stronger hold than first anticipated.

  • Ricky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz

    Ricky Rubio will miss approximately two weeks with a right hamstring injury.

    An MRI on Tuesday came back clean, which is good news overall. Dante Exum is expected to miss multiple weeks with a sprained ankle so it'll be Raul Neto elevated into the starting lineup. He's worth a look for any teams in need of assists but might not end up making the grade for 12-team leagues despite starting. Though he's build-dependent for smaller formats, Neto is certainly worth adding in any deeper leagues. Rubio is a hold if you have the room but is only cooking with late-round value this year, so if you need immediate production you might be forced into a move. Donvan Mitchell should also see more playmaking duties, and any extra assists there could give him a small short-term bump.

    Updating a previous blurb, the injury Ricky Rubio sustained in Monday night's game has been amended as a right hamstring injury, instead of "thigh."

    This is not good news as hamstring injuries tend to take longer than ones on the thigh. Depending on its severity, which will soon be determined, Rubio could miss anywhere from a few to several games. Stay tuned for updates.

    Ricky Rubio has been diagnosed with a thigh injury and has been ruled out for the remainder of Monday's game vs. the Bucks.

    Expect to see Donovan Mitchell run things at the one, with Raul Neto backing him up. Other players like Jae Crowder and Kyle Korver should also soak up some of those minutes left by Rubio's absence.

    Ricky Rubio limped to the locker room on Monday vs. the Bucks.

    Rubio got hurt halfway into the first quarter and we will see if he's able to return. If he's unable to do so, Raul Neto should see some run at point with Dante Exum already sidelined for a couple of weeks with a sprained ankle.

  • Ricky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz

    Ricky Rubio posted 18 points on 6-of-13 shooting in Saturday's road win, adding two rebounds, four assists, a steal and a 3-pointer.

    Rubio played tonight, the second half of a back-to-back, after being listed as questionable with a foot injury on Friday. It's safe to say that he's okay to place into all lineups now, and he may be seeing some extra minutes going forward with Dante Exum getting hurt tonight.

  • Ricky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz

    Ricky Rubio played on Friday despite being listed as questionable and ended up posting 15 points (6-for-13 shooting), four rebounds, five assists and three 3-pointers in only 25 minutes of work.

    Rubio's been banged up lately but we're not betting on any of his ailments (he was listed with a foot issue today) being serious, considering the Jazz ran him out there against Cleveland with another game tomorrow. Use him as you normally would. Dante Exum put up 11 points, seven assists and a 3-pointer in 20 minutes off the bench and looks fine for deep-league use.

  • Ricky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz

    Ricky Rubio (foot) will play on Friday night.

    Rubio was initially listed as questionable and had dealt with back and knee issues in the days preceding this, so he's definitely not 100 percent. It likely explains his lackluster performance over the last week or so, and he's still a buy-low option with a likely landing spot in the late-middle rounds by the time the season ends.

    Ricky Rubio (foot) is being listed as questionable going into Friday's game vs. the Cavs.

    Rubio has been horrible lately and is outside of the top-300 over the past week while Dante Exum is the 98th ranked player in that time. The Jazz most likely won't move on from Rubio but maybe some rest and him sitting this one out is needed. If Rubio does miss this one feel free to start Dante Exum vs. a horrible Cavaliers team.

  • Ricky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz

    Ricky Rubio (back, knee) started in Tuesday's loss to the Raptors, scoring 14 points on 6-of-17 shooting with four rebounds, eight assists and one block over 31 minutes.

    Rubio is barely hanging on in 9-cat leagues as he dips toward the bottom of the top-150 for the season but in 8-cat formats the value is clearly in the must-own range.

    Ricky Rubio (back, knee) is available to play on Tuesday.

    Dante Exum will likely head back to the bench as Rubio returns to the lineup. It's been a mildly disappointing year for Rubio, who is only a late-round guy on the season, but he's been good for some big second halves in recent years so we'll see if he can repeat the feat and finish closer to his ADP.

    Ricky Rubio is probable to play on Tuesday against the Raptors.

    Rubio took a hard fall last Thursday and sat out Thursday's game with back and knee issues. Dante Exum was able to register his first career double-double in a cake matchup with the Knicks but will return to the bench with Rubio back in action. Make sure the Spaniard is in your lineups.

    Ricky Rubio (back, left leg) has been ruled out against the Knicks on Saturday.

    Rubio suffered the injuries on a hard fall in Thursday's game and needs a little more time to heal. They do not appear to be serious and his next chance to play would be Tuesday against the Raptors. Donovan Mitchell will handle the ball more than usual with Dante Exum and Raul Neto benefiting as well.
