Ricky Rubio handed out 15 assists in Tuesday's loss to the Lakers, adding 10 points, two boards and one steal in 29 minutes.
The Wolves have lost five straight games, and other than assists (10.4) and steals (2.2), Rubio has struggled with averages of 7.2 points and 0.2 3-pointers on 36.1 percent shooting from the field in that span. The good news is that Zach LaVine is logging about half of his minutes at shooting guard, so Rubio's role should be safe moving forward if he can stay healthy. Feb 3 - 2:09 AM

Ricky Rubio notched 15 points, nine assists, four rebounds, three steals and one 3-pointer without any turnovers in 29 minutes of action on Sunday.

It was an inverted shooting night for Rubio, as he did well from the field (6-of-7) and poorly from the FT line (2-of-5). The play-making maestro is putting on a clinic over the Wolves' past five games, tallying 49 assists with only four turnovers.

Ricky Rubio scored a season-low three points on 3-of-4 shooting from the line Friday, to go with eight assists, two boards, two steals and one turnover through 30 minutes of floor time.

Rubio is an elite contributor to the assist (8.6) and steals (2.2) categories, but his complete lack of any offensive game (9.4 points on 34.7 percent shooting) keeps his fantasy value in the mid-rounds. Andrew Wiggins also couldn't get his shot to drop on Friday night, tallying a season-low five points on 2-of-11 shooting with just two steals and nothing else. However, both guys will have a much more favorable matchup against Portland on Sunday, so owners can expect a bounce-back performance this weekend.
Jan 29 - 11:35 PM

Ricky Rubio dished out 10 assists vs. the Thunder, while stealing the ball three times, but he scored only four points on 1-of-6 FGs and 2-of-3 FTs.

Rubio racked up his 2,000th career assist during the game and his fantasy value continues to hinge almost entirely on his dimes and steals -- he ranks fifth league-wide in assists (8.6) and third in steals (2.2), but his jump shooting hasn't progressed a whit. It's a situation owners should have resigned themselves to on draft day.
Jan 28 - 12:17 AM

Ricky Rubio scored 15 points during a 106-101 win over the Grizzlies on Saturday, adding six rebounds, 12 assists, three steals and one turnover in 29 minutes.

His defense was great in arguably his best game of 2016. Rubio has put up an underwhelming January, averaging 9.4 points, 3.4 boards, 6.9 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.1 treys on 40.0 percent from the field. He only has seventh-round value this month.
Jan 23 - 11:31 PM

Ricky Rubio dished out 11 assists during Wednesday's OT defeat, but he also shot 1-of-9 from the field while committing five turnovers in 36 minutes.

This was both the good and bad Ricky, who now has at least 10 assists in 13 games this season -- owners will have to live with both aspects of his game. Minnesota has now dropped eight straight road games, and their next three opponents on the road are Cleveland, Utah and Portland.
Jan 21 - 12:01 AM

Ricky Rubio had 15 points, but added just one rebound, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer on 5-of-7 shooting Tuesday.

Rubio's had two of his best scoring games of the season over his last two games, but has a total of just seven assists and three steals in those two games. Expect his scoring to drop and his assists to rise in the near future, as it's unlikely he'll continue to score in double digits for much longer.
Jan 19 - 11:16 PM

Ricky Rubio scored an uncharacteristically efficient 18 points on 6-of-11 shooting Sunday, adding three assists, two boards, two 3-pointers, two steals and three turnovers in just 24 minutes.

The Suns defense against opposing point guards is so bad that Rubio become an effective offensive weapon for the Timberwolves in this one. However, this isn’t a trend that’s likely to continue for a guy shooting 34.7 percent from the field on the season. Rubio is a solid mid-round guy with averages of 8.9 points, 8.7 assists, 2.6 steals and 2.4 turnovers per game on the season, but the poor shooting and complete lack of a 3-point shot will keep him out of the early-round equation.
Jan 17 - 6:28 PM

Ricky Rubio made 2-of-6 from the field for six points during a 113-93 loss to the Thunder on Friday, adding four rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes.

The Wolves have lost nine in a row and their offense has been a nightmare lately. Rubio hasn't helped in his previous eight, making just 36.5 percent from the field because he is having some major trouble finishing around the basket. He's kind of a buy-low guy because this is a bad slump even for him.
Jan 15 - 10:14 PM

Ricky Rubio committed a season-high eight turnovers vs. the Rockets, but he still finished with nine points (3-of-4 FGs, 3-of-5 FTs), five rebounds, 12 assists, four steals and one block in 33 minutes.

Patrick Beverley wasn't active tonight but Rubio still had a rough evening. He had been very stingy with turnovers in January, averaging a mere 1.5 per game, so his 9-cat owners can't be too upset. Rubio is playing well but his team continues to struggle mightily, having lost 12 of their past 13 games.
Jan 14 - 12:37 AM

Ricky Rubio hit just 1-of-5 shots (a 3-pointer) for three points, two rebounds, six assists and one steal in Tuesday's 101-96 loss to the Thunder.

This is as bad a game as you'll see from Rubio. His scoring fluctuates to the dark side at times, but he usually makes up for it elsewhere. He'll bounce back in the next one, but he's now scored in single digits in four of his last five games.
Jan 13 - 12:39 AM

Ricky Rubio scored seven points during a 109-99 loss to the 76ers on Monday, adding 10 assists, three steals and two turnovers in 33 minutes.

He was torched on defense tonight and only made 3-of-11 from the field in the loss. Rubio is really in an scoring funk in his last five, averaging 9.4 points, 3.4 boards, 11.2 dimes, 3.0 steals and 0.8 treys on 31.1 percent from the field. As bad as the scoring is, those steals and dimes make him worth starting in all leagues.
Jan 4 - 11:09 PM

Ricky Rubio was solid in Saturday's loss to the Bucks, scoring 14 points on 4-of-8 shooting in 34 minutes.

Head coach Sam Mitchell recently said that he wants Rubio to stop gambling so much for steals, but he added three more to his name tonight and now has a total of 35 steals over his last 10 games. Rubio also added seven assists, six boards, one block and two 3-pointers, making this one of his best all-around performances of the season. If he can fend off injuries, he should be a top-50 guy moving forward.
Jan 2 - 11:07 PM

Ricky Rubio has a total of 32 steals over his last nine games, and said that he has been able to gamble a little more because he feels good physically.

"I feel good physically, so I can gamble a little bit more," Rubio said. "I mean, I was out for a long time last season and I finally get the feeling of the game back. So I feel pretty good. It’s a matter of being in good position and gamble sometimes." His steal numbers have been impressive, but coach Sam Mitchell actually wants him to gamble less because he said it puts too much pressure on the defense if he doesn't come up with the ball.
Jan 2 - 10:45 AM

Ricky Rubio made 3-of-11 from the field for nine points with six rebounds, eight assists, two steals and five turnovers against the Pistons on Thursday.

After dropping 31 dimes and four turnovers in his previous two, everyone knew he was not going to stay hot forever. Rubio did seem to have a very minor tweak to his leg, but it's nothing to worry about now. Still, if you can sell him at around $1.33 on the dollar in which you drafted him, it's not a bad idea.
