  • Rubio (knee), along with a 2022 first-round pick and two future second-round picks, was traded to the Pacers in exchange for Caris LeVert on Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Rubio suffered a torn ACL at the end of December and will miss the rest of the season, so his expiring contract was likely only added in the trade to match LeVert's salary. The veteran point guard finished the 2021-22 campaign averaging 13.1 points, 6.6 assists, 4.1 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 28.6 minutes per game. With the injury being late in the season, and given the fact that Rubio is 31-years-old, it may impact his ability to be ready for the 2022-23 campaign. It's unclear what the Pacers will do with Rubio, but it's likely that they'll allow him to enter free agency this offseason.

  • Rubio will miss the remainder of the 2021-22 season after he underwent an MRI on Wednesday that confirmed he sustained a torn ACL in his left knee, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Rubio got hurt late in Tuesday's 108-104 loss to the Pelicans, with the serious knee injury casting a shadow over a dominant performance in which he posted 27 points, 13 rebounds, nine assists, two steals and two blocks across 37 minutes while filling in as the starting point guard for Darius Garland (COVID-19 health and safety protocols). The injury is a gutting one for the surging Cavaliers and Rubio, who previously tore his ACL in the same knee as a rookie with the Timberwolves in 2011-12. With that in mind, Rubio's rehab could extend into the 2022-23 campaign and significantly affect the outlook for the rest of his career. With both Rubio and Garland out, rookie Kevin Pangos is projected to step in as the team's starting point guard in the short term.

  • Rubio will undergo an MRI on his left knee Wednesday after he exited late in Tuesday's 108-104 loss to the Pelicans, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Rubio required assistance off the floor from his teammates after being unable to put weight on his left leg when he left with 2:20 remaining in the fourth quarter. Before sustaining the injury, Rubio delivered a huge outing while stepping in as the starting point guard in place of Darius Garland, who entered the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols prior to the contest. Rubio finished with 27 points (10-25 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 13 rebounds, nine assists, two steals and two blocks across 37 minutes, boosting his season-long averages to 13.1, 4.1, 6.6, 1.4 and 0.2 per game in those respective categories. With Collin Sexton (knee) already done for the season, Cleveland could end up even more shorthanded in the backcourt if Rubio is diagnosed with a serious injury. It's worth noting that Rubio suffered a torn ACL in the same knee during his rookie season with the Timberwolves in 2011-12.

  • Rubio was helped off the floor with an apparent leg injury during the fourth quarter of Tuesday's game against the Pelicans, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports. Rubio was in the midst of a fantastic game with 27 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists. He was holding his left knee after going down, and he wasn't putting any weight on his leg while being helped to the locker room by his teammates. It certainly seems possible Rubio suffered a serious injury, which would be a huge blow to the team since he's having a great year for the succeeding Cavs. For the duration of his absence, with Darius Garland in protocols, more minutes will be available for Kevin Pangos, Denzel Valentine and other backcourt options.

  • Rubio will start Wednesday's game against the Celtics, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Rubio will make his first start since Nov. 18 for the shorthanded Cavaliers, who have been hit by COVID. In his four starts this season, Rubio has averaged 20.2 points, 6.0 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 34.2 minutes.
