Ricky Rubio (hamstring) will not play in Game 5 on Tuesday.
He was ruled out a few hours before tip-off for Game 4, but now he's getting ruled out a full day before. There's no word of any setback, but this is rough news for a Jazz team that will also be missing Dante Exum, one of their best options to defend James Harden. The Jazz will have to get creative and we should see a heavy dose of Royce O'Neale again. May 7 - 7:09 PM

Ricky Rubio (hamstring) has been ruled out for Game 4 on Sunday.

Derrick Favors (ankle) remains questionable. The Jazz were hopeful to get Rubio back this evening and he was upgraded to questionable on Saturday, but he's getting ruled out a few hours before tip-off which suggests that he's not as close as they thought. Donovan Mitchell will continue to run the offense, but has had his struggles in this series.

The Jazz are hopeful that they will get Ricky Rubio (hamstring) back for Game 4 Sunday.

He was able to do some running and shooting on Saturday and was listed as questionable shortly after. A team source is optimistic that Rubio will play according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN, but the team will have a better idea after he receives treatment in the early afternoon. Donovan Mitchell has been forced to play out of his comfort zone at point guard, so getting Rubio back would be a huge lift for the Jazz.

Ricky Rubio (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday against the Rockets in Game 4.

He did some agility drills, jogging and got some shots up on Friday, but there's no word of him going through a full practice. Usually, teams like for injured players to go through some contact the day before a game, but the circumstance is a little different with the Jazz needing a win on Sunday in a big way. If Rubio does come back, Royce O'Neale, Alec Burks and Dante Exum would lose minutes. For now, Rubio would likely be limited at best.
May 5 - 6:11 PM

Ricky Rubio (hamstring) did some agility drills and jogging on Friday, but he is officially out for Game 3.

He does not have a target date, but he is doing some shooting drills on the move. Rubio is expected to miss the whole Houston series and he'll likely need to go through a full practice before there's any optimism for a return. Royce O'Neale will continue to start, but Alec Burks and Dante Exum were unsung heroes of Game 2. Both Exum and Burks are in play for DFS.
May 4 - 3:07 PM

Ricky Rubio (hamstring) will miss Game 1 against the Rockets on Sunday and could miss several weeks.

According to ESPN, Rubio could miss 10 days, so multiple sources believe Rubio could miss this whole round. This is bad news after Rubio strained his troublesome hamstring in Game 6 on Friday. He's dealt with this injury before and the Jazz will now have to take it easy on what has been one of the easier injuries to aggravate among soft tissue injuries. Royce O'Neale really stepped up on Friday and would likely start, making him a DFS option. Donovan Mitchell's upside is higher while Alec Burks is likely to see more time.
Apr 28 - 4:43 PM

Ricky Rubio will be re-evaluated after straining his hamstring on Friday night.

In case you missed it, Rubio tweaked his hammy tonight and did not return. It's no surprise he will be re-evaluated after Rubio has dealt with this issue for a good portion of his post-break run. He only missed one game, but he's been unable to complete multiple games due to this issue since late March. If he's out, Alec Burks and Royce O'Neale would step up while Donovan Mitchell's rep would grow bigger.

Ricky Rubio (left hamstring) will not return against the Thunder on Friday.

Not good. Rubio's hamstring problems have limited him on and off for about a month now, and he won't be going back in for what is the biggest game the Jazz have played in years. He only missed one whole game with this issue since the break, but he's had to check out multiple times. Royce O'Neale and Dante Exum will have to step up while Donovan Mitchell will be the man.
Apr 27 - 11:02 PM

Ricky Rubio was the best player on the floor during a 115-102 Game 3 win over the Thunder on Saturday, scoring 26 points with 11 rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

Obviously it's his first playoff triple-double, but he is the first Jazzman to notch one of those since John Stockton in 2001. He was on fire in the first half with 19 points, and he hit a massive 3-pointer at the buzzer to end the third. On the lighter side, Rubio had a man bun today, and it's worth a mention he's put up more points, boards and dimes while being more efficient and posting a 14.5 net rating when he has a man bun compared to without one (H/T SLC Dunk). Hairstyle stats aside, the Jazz are so hot right now.

Ricky Rubio was terrific on Wednesday with 22 points on 6-of-16 shooting, nine assists, seven rebounds and one steal in a Game 2 victory at OKC.

Rubio launched 18 shots in Utah's Game 1 defeat, which tied the third-most attempts he had in any regular season game this year. He wasn't shy tonight, either, and connected on 5-of-6 free throws while knocking down five 3-pointers. The triples tied Rubio's season high and helped Utah escape with a series-tying victory, despite the rest of the roster combining for 4-of-21 shooting from downtown. So far, so good for Rubio in his first postseason run.
Apr 18 - 10:56 PM

Ricky Rubio made his postseason debut on Sunday with 13 points on 5-of-18 shooting, seven rebounds, five assists, four steals and one block in 31 minutes.

Rubio's 41.8% shooting this season was actually a career high, as was his 35.2% shooting from deep, but the Thunder were more than happy to have him launch the second-most shots of any Jazz player tonight. Rubio is in his seventh NBA season and he's played at the highest levels internationally, of course, so the playoff spotlight won't faze him -- and if his shots had fallen tonight, this would have been a tremendous overall stat line.
Apr 15 - 9:24 PM

The Jazz will start Ricky Rubio, Donovan Mitchell, Joe Ingles, Derrick Favors, and Rudy Gobert in Game 1 vs. Oklahoma City.

Just like the Thunder, the Jazz will roll with their traditional starting five to begin the playoffs.
Apr 15 - 5:42 PM

Ricky Rubio (hamstring) was able to play in Sunday's road win against the Lakers, finishing with nine points over 18 minutes.

Rubio was a game-time decision after battling lingering soreness in his hamstring for a while, and he played with a minutes cap in this one. When he was on the court he was very good, hitting 4-of-6 from the field with three rebounds, two assist and two steals with just one turnover and a solid plus-16 rating, second-best on the team. Royce O'Neale and Dante Exum carried a heavier load with Rubio's workload limited, but the veteran Rubio appears to be a go for the postseason.
Apr 8 - 9:00 PM

Ricky Rubio (hamstring) is available for Sunday's game vs. the Lakers.

He was considered a game-time call and has been battling lingering soreness for a while, so the Jazz will be watching him closely tonight. Dante Exum and Royce O'Neale both lose a bit of appeal with Rubio active.
Apr 8 - 5:29 PM

Ricky Rubio (hamstring) is questionable against the Lakers on Sunday.

The Jazz were managing his hamstring soreness on Thursday night with a heat pad, but they ruled him out for the second half. This issue is clearly bothering him since last month, so he could sit. If he is not going to play, that'll likely put Royce O'Neale in the first unit for a prime spot while Dante Exum backs him up. Exum looked terrific on Thursday.
