Rubio finished with just nine points (3-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds and three assists in 16 minutes during Saturday's 125-85 victory over Orlando.
Rubio returned from a one-game absence due to a minor Achilles issue, and played just 16 minutes. This was due in part to the nature of the scoreline, and is probably not the best gauge of his health for owners. He has not been shooting the ball well over the last two weeks, and this continued against the Magic. Owners will be hoping he can turn it around when the Jazz face the surging Philadelphia 76ers on Monday.
Rubio (Achilles) has been cleared to play during Saturday's game against the Magic and will draw the start at point guard, but carry a 25-minute restriction, Tony Jones of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Rubio missed the first end of a back-to-back set Friday against the Nets while nursing a sore Achilles. He's apparently feeling better, however, and will resume his normal role Saturday against the Magic, albeit with a minutes restriction. As a result of his return, Raul Neto is the candidate most likely to see his minutes decrease.
Rubio (Achilles) is probable for Saturday's tilt against the Magic, Tony Jones of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Rubio missed Friday's game against the Nets due to Achilles soreness, though that has seemingly subsided significantly. More word on his status should arrive closer to tipoff. But, if he's able to play, it would likely mean fewer minutes for Raul Neto. Rubio has struggled over his past five outings, posting just 8.2 points, 4.8 assists and 2.0 steals per contest.
Rubio (Achilles) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Nets, Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
A sore Achilles will keep the veteran out of action Friday, marking his first absence of the season. The Jazz are considering Rubio day-to-day, but considering they're in action again Saturday, it's very possible Rubio could miss another contest. In his absence Friday, expect Donovan Mitchell to take on an even larger playmaking burden, while little-used guard Raul Neto could see a bump in minutes.
Rubio is questionable for Friday's game against the Nets with Achilles soreness, Eric Woodyard of Deseret News reports.
Rubio played 31 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Knicks and is yet to miss a game due to injury this season, so it's unclear exactly where the Achilles soreness stems from. Look for the point guard to test out the injury in shootaround Friday morning before an update on his status is provided for the team's outing in Brooklyn.
