Rubio (hamstring) has been ruled out for Game 5 against the Rockets on Tuesday.
There appeared to be some optimism that Rubio would return over the last few games, but he's now been ruled out once again Tuesday while he continues to work through a hamstring injury. That Jazz are on the brink of elimination, down 3-1 in their series versus the Rockets, so Rubio's season could be over. With Rubio out once again, Royce O'Neal is in line for another start, barring any sort of lineup changes.
Rubio (hamstring) has been ruled out for Game 4 against the Rockets on Sunday, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
The Jazz were hopeful that Rubio could make his first appearance of the series Sunday, but after testing everything out during shootaround, he was downgraded to out. This will mark Rubio's fourth straight absence and it's unclear if he'll be healthy enough to return in time for Game 5 on Tuesday. Look for Royce O'Neal to start once again after averaging 9.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals across 28.3 minutes over the last three games.
Rubio (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's Game 4 against the Rockets.
Rubio has missed the entire series thus far while recovering from a hamstring injury, prompting Royce O'Neale to enter the starting five and Donovan Mitchell to shift to point guard. It appears Rubio has made solid progress, however, as he's a 50/50 shot to take the floor for Game 4. More information on his condition may arrive following Sunday's morning shootaround.
Rubio (hamstring) has been ruled out for Friday's Game 3 against the Rockets, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
Earlier in the week, there was a glimmer of hope that Rubio would make enough progress to be able to return for Game 3, but he'll ultimately miss a third consecutive contest as the Jazz look to take a 2-1 lead at home. The veteran point guard was on the floor at shootaround Friday morning, but he was limited to shooting work as the team continues to exercise caution with his hamstring. Expect the Jazz to again go with Royce O'Neale in place of Rubio in the starting five, with Donovan Mitchell taking on even more primary ball-handling responsibilities.
Rubio (hamstring) is out for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Rockets.
Rubio will miss another game as he continues to deal with a hamstring injury suffered earlier in the postseason. Royce O'Neale will continue to start in his place. It was initally reported that he could miss 10 days, meaning Rubio should be considered for questionable for Game 3 at this time.
