Ricky Rubio (knee) is starting against the Kings on Saturday.

He popped up on the injury report from a Thursday injury, but he got the green light earlier today. Rubio continues to play well and he has the highest net rating on the Jazz among their key rotation players during this insane 20-2 stretch.

Ricky Rubio (knee) is available to play Saturday vs. the Kings.

Rubio was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report, but is on track to suit up Saturday night. Rubio is averaging 12.6 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 6.6 assists in 30.5 minutes in the 11 games he's played since the All-Star break.
Mar 17 - 1:08 PM

Ricky Rubio is questionable for Saturday's game against the Kings due a knee contusion.

This is a new injury from last night and it would be interesting to find out if it's from the fall he had after Marquese Chriss shoved him. If Rubio can't play, we may get to see more Dante Exum after a solid debut on Thursday. The Jazz also signed David Stockton, so that could be fun in garbage time.
Mar 16 - 5:50 PM

Ricky Rubio dished out nine dimes during Tuesday's easy win over the Pistons, adding four points, three boards, one steal and two turnovers in 27 minutes.

Rubio popped off for 30 points on Sunday, but he spent more time in his natural facilitator role tonight, and overall, Utah's ball movement was quite superb in this one. While the scoring tends to come and go with Rubio, he's pretty consistent with the boards, dimes and steals, and he could realistically finish the year as a top-50 player.
Mar 13 - 11:40 PM

Ricky Rubio was terrific during Sunday's road win, scoring 30 points (10-of-22 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs) with 10 rebounds, seven assists and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

Rubio torched Rajon Rondo for his second straight double-double, while turning in his second-highest scoring game of the season. The four made 3-pointers were also his highest since late October. Rubio has reclaimed some offensive rhythm since returning from a hip injury, and is once again posting top-50 value at an ideal time for fantasy owners.
Mar 11 - 7:22 PM

Ricky Rubio filled up the stat sheet on Wednesday with 18 points on 8-of-18 shooting, seven assists, six rebounds, three steals and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

Rubio's shot was off in the first five games after All-Star weekend, but he went 6-of-9 from the field on Monday and came just one shy of his season-high for FG attempts tonight. The supporting stats have been there all along, so it's great to see him staying aggressive offensively.
Mar 7 - 9:46 PM

Ricky Rubio hit 6-of-9 shots for 12 points, four rebounds, eight assists and a steal in 35 minutes of Monday's win over the Magic.

Rubio hasn't been the same guy since returning from his hip injury, but has scored in double digits in four straight and is averaging 11.2 points, 5.0 rebounds, 6.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 0.6 3-pointers on 37 percent shooting over his last five games. The Jazz are hunting the playoffs, playing amazing defense and have gone 8-2 over their last 10 games, and Rubio's shot was falling tonight. He could be getting ready to get hot, which would be a welcomed sight from his fantasy owners.
Mar 5 - 11:54 PM

Ricky Rubio ended up with 13 points across 31 minutes in Friday's 116-108 win against the Timberwolves.

It was a rough go for Rubio, as he hit 3-of-8 from the field, including 0-of-2 from down deep while turning it over three times. He also took a shoulder from Jeff Teague, getting knocked to the floor, and Jimmy Butler was home tweeting his approval. Ouch. Rubio was able to salvage the stat line somewhat with seven assists, five rebounds and a steal. He'll look for better results Sunday in Sacramento.
Mar 3 - 2:52 AM

Ricky Rubio hit 4-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 14 points, three rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block in 27 minutes of Monday's 96-85 loss to the Rockets.

This was easily his best game since returning from his hip injury three games ago, but he hasn't really looked great in any of them. He was absolutely on fire before the injury, but at least tonight was a step in the right direction to getting back on track.
Feb 27 - 12:04 AM

Ricky Rubio hit just 2-of-9 from the field to finish with just seven points Saturday night against the visiting Mavericks.

Rubio helped out fantasy owners with six assists, five rebounds and a steal while turning it over just once, and he ended up with a plus-14 rating. But he is just 4-of-15 from the field in two games since returning after a three-game absence due to a hip injury, and perhaps he is not quite 100 percent yet. He is averaging just 5.7 PPG, 4.3 APG, 3.7 RPG and 1.7 SPG over his past three outings. Despite the struggles you have to stick with him. He was red hot before the hip injury.
Feb 25 - 1:10 AM

Ricky Rubio (hip) returned to the starting lineup Friday against Portland, finishing with just four points over 20 minutes.

Rubio hit just 2-of-6 from the field while adding four rebounds, two assists and three rebounds with no 3-pointers. It was an ugly game for Rubio, but it wasn't a very good outing for the rest of his teammates either in a 19-point loss. He'll look for better results in Saturday's game against the Mavericks as long as he checks out OK after the game with the training staff.
Feb 24 - 12:51 AM

Ricky Rubio (hip) will start on Friday night against the Blazers.

The Jazz didn't miss him too much while he was out and they continue to be the hottest team in the NBA. Rubio is going to have a minutes limit tonight, but he should be back in all fantasy lineups. We should see Royce O'Neale, Jae Crowder and some other bench guys take a hit here.
Feb 23 - 8:23 PM

Ricky Rubio (hip) will be available to play Friday night vs. the Blazers.

Rubio missed Utah's final three games before the All-Star break, but was playing his best ball of the season prior to the hip injury. Over a seven-game stretch from late January through early February, Rubio was averaging 20.7 points, 7.7 assists, 5.9 rebounds and 1.9 treys, while shooting 53.8 percent from the floor. Royce O'Neale played well in Rubio's absence but will see his minutes dip with Ricky back in the mix.
Feb 23 - 1:16 PM

Ricky Rubio (hip) went through practice on Thursday and is questionable to play against the Blazers on Friday.

That's good news after Rubio did not practice on Wednesday. Rubio missed the last three games of the first half, which allowed Royce O'Neale to thrive in the starting lineup. Even if Rubio returns, O'Neale still has a chance to produce useable value in 12-team leagues. Rubio was also red hot before his injury on Feb. 9.
