    Timberwolves' Ricky Rubio: Dishes 15 assists Tuesday

    Rubio recorded 10 points (4-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 15 assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 29 minutes during the Timberwolves' 119-115 loss versus the Lakers on Tuesday. Enjoying averages of 7.2 points, 10.4 assists, 3.4 rebounds, and 2.2 steals in 30 minutes per contest over the five most recent games, Rubio now has six double-doubles on the season. The elite passer and defender is shooting 35 percent from the field in 2015-16, which is ugly even when considering that he takes only eight field goal attempts per game. Still, Rubio's ability to contribute decently in most other categories (excluding threes and blocks) makes him useful across all fantasy formats.

    Timberwolves' Ricky Rubio: Career-high 13 free throw attempts

    Rubio scored 15 points with 12 assists and six rebounds in 29 minutes in Saturday's win over Memphis. He matched a career high with 13 free throw attempts (11-of-13). Rubio hasn't improved his shooting in his fifth season as his 35.2 percent from the field would be a career low. However, he could be more of a factor on offense if he can get to the free throw line more by driving to the basket.

    Timberwolves' Ricky Rubio: Scores 18 points on Sunday

    Rubio recorded 18 points (6-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three assists, two rebounds, and two steals in 24 minutes during the Timberwolves' 117-87 victory versus the Suns on Sunday. Rubio is averaging 9.6 points (44.4 FG, 38.5 3Pt, 78.6 FT), 6.2 assists to 3.2 turnovers, four rebounds, 2.2 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 27 minutes per game over the past five contests. His assists and minutes are down of late thanks to the fact that he played only 24 minutes in each of the previous two match-ups. However, after sinking only three three-pointers through the end of November, Rubio made 12 in December, and has already drilled 11 in January.

    Timberwolves' Ricky Rubio: Shoots 3-for-11 from field in loss

    Rubio scored seven points (3-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go with 10 assists and three steals over 33 minutes in Monday's 109-99 loss to the 76ers. Rubio is shooting just 31.3 percent from the field over his past five games, a mark that's awful even by his low standards. The Spaniard has at least averaged 11.2 assists during that same stretch, but any hope that the 25-year-old will eventually fix his broken jump shot has probably faded at this point.

    Timberwolves' Ricky Rubio: Notches season-high 17 dimes in victory Wednesday

    Rubio scored 10 points (2-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT) with 17 assists, three steals, and two rebounds over 36 minutes in a 94-80 victory over the Jazz on Wednesday. Rubio's 17 dimes ties his career high, as the 25-year-old continues to rank among Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo, and John Wall as a league-leader in assists. With Zach LaVine primarily being used as a shooting guard, and Tyus Jones not making much of an impact off the bench, Rubio's court time has never been safer.

    Timberwolves' Ricky Rubio: Dishes 14 dimes

    Rubio posted seven points (2-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 14 assists, four steals, and three rebounds in 37 minutes in Monday's 101-95 loss to the Spurs. Rubio is averaging 8.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, 9.6 assists, and 3.4 steals over the last five games. In spite of his solid assists and steals production, he's been pretty lackadaisical in grabbing boards. Rubio has struggled with consistency throughout his career, but as long as he's staying on the court (without an injury), it's a bonus. Given that he's getting a ton of minutes this season, and has only missed six games due to injury thus far, Rubio seems to be in a good position to hold fantasy value in shallow formats.

    Timberwolves' Ricky Rubio: Pitches in 15 points Saturday

    Rubio pitched in 15 points (6-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine assists, five rebounds and five steals over 37 minutes in Saturday's 102-88 loss to the Pacers. The Timberwolves' point guard managed his second straight 60 percent shooting performance, although Saturday's was the more impressive of the two considering he took double the number of shot attempts as in the first one. The 15 points represented Rubio's second-highest total of December, and third on the season. Despite the well-rounded performance, the 25-year-old is undeniably a pass-first point guard who only occasionally breaks into the teens scoring-wise. However his above-average assist, rebound and steal numbers help supplement his fantasy value, and the occasional scoring contributions are a nice bonus when they do occur.

    Timberwolves' Ricky Rubio: Drops 15 dimes Sunday

    Rubio recorded eight points (1-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 15 assists, four steals, and two rebounds in 28 minutes during the Timberwolves' 100-85 win versus the Nets on Sunday. Rubio has never made a decent percentage of his field goal attempts during his NBA career. Still, he finds a way to make his mark on games and the stat sheet by doing everything else really well, and he makes for a must-start option in most leagues. Rubio's 15 assists matched his season-high, which he set back on Dec. 5 versus the Trail Blazers.

    Timberwolves' Ricky Rubio: Teases triple-double in Friday's win

    Rubio scored 12 points (3-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 Ft) while adding eight assists, seven rebounds and two steals in 32 minutes during Friday's win over the Kings. One game after coming within a point and two steals of a rare quadruple-double, Rubio again lit up the stat sheet Friday. He's also got a career-low 34.0 field goal percentage on the season, though, so while Rubio's been teasing some impressive single-game performances recently, his overall value remains decidedly limited despite his contributions in secondary categories.

    Timberwolves' Ricky Rubio: Gets 12 assists Wednesday

    Rubio scored 5 points (0-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT) to go along with 12 assists and nine rebounds in 33 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Lakers. Rubio had a poor night shooting, failing to make a shot, but he made up for it with strong performances rebounding and passing. He hasn't been a high scorer all season, scoring in double digits just six times, equal to his number of games with double digit assists. Look for him to continue to be shaky in scoring but consistent in assist totals.
