Rubio produced 20 points (6-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT), four rebounds, three steals, and two assists in 28 minutes during Saturday's 98-86 victory over the Celtics. Rubio had just his third 20 point game of the season Saturday but also tied his season-low with two assists. Rubio's scoring has been inconsistent, as is normally the case, but he has managed to lift his assist numbers from last season. He has also recorded multiple steals in six games, providing him with some nice overall value.
Rubio had 11 points (3-9 FG, 1-5 3PT, 4-4 FT) in Wednesday's loss to the Mavs. Rubio was Utah's highest scorer in a game the Jazz lost by 50 points, and he also added three assists, three rebounds and four steals, salvaging a decent fantasy outing on what was otherwise a wildly disappointing night for the Jazz.
Rubio recorded seven points (3-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 24 minutes during Monday's 96-88 win over the Grizzlies. Rubio was listed as probable due to back spasms, and gave it a go as expected. He may not have felt fully healthy, though he did foul out, so he certainly wasn't shying away from contact. His jumper has regressed here to start 2018-19 campaign after posting his best field goal and three-point shooting percentages last season. However, while this contest offers little proof, Rubio has regained his swagger in the assist department after posting a career low average in that category last year.
Rubio (back) will play Monday against the Grizzlies, Andy Larsen of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Rubio was dealing with back spasms coming into the day, but the expectation all along was that he'd play. Expect the veteran to be available for his usual workload Monday.
Rubio is probable for Monday's game against Memphis due to back spasms. Rubio didn't appear to be slowed by any sort of injury in Friday's contest, but he's listed as probable on Utah's injury report. If he's unable to take the court, expect Dante Exum to draw the start at point guard.
