Rubio (hip) will be under an unspecified minutes restriction for Friday's contest against the Trail Blazers, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
Rubio missed the team's last three tilts prior to the All-Star break, but the extra time off apparently did him some good. That said, coach Quin Snyder is opting to ease him back into the rotation by limiting his workload. With Raul Neto (ankle) out, Alec Burks is a strong candidate to see an uptick in run.
Rubio (hip) is available to play in Friday's game against the Trail Blazers.
Rubio was back at practice Thursday, and it looks like the extra time off with the All-Star break was enough for him to make his return to the hardwood Friday. While Rubio could be somewhat limited in his return given his lengthy absence, he will likely return to his spot as the team's starting point guard, which could result in less usage for Donovan Mitchell and push backup point guard Raul Neto into a more limited role off the bench.
Rubio (hip) was back at practice Thursday and is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Trail Blazers, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
After sitting out Wednesday's practice, this is an encouraging update for Rubio and obviously means there's a chance he's cleared in time for Friday's contest. That said, the Jazz are heading into a back-to-back set, so there's a chance the team could take a cautious approach with their point guard and hold him out once again. Look for another update on Rubio following Friday's morning shootaround and if he were to be cleared, Royce O'Neale would likely head to the bench and see a role reduction.
Rubio (hip) sat out practice Wednesday, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
Rubio missed the final three games prior to the All-Star break with a hip injury and is apparently not quite over it despite the additional week and a half off for recovery. He wasn't able to practice Wednesday while getting treatment on his hip, though there's still another few days prior to Friday's tilt with Portland. For now, Rubio can be considered questionable for that outing and another update will likely be provided following Thursday's practice session.
Rubio (hip) is out for Wednesday's game against the Suns, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Rubio, who was originally listed as questionable for the contest, will miss his third straight contest Wednesday as he continues to deal with hip soreness. As a result, Donovan Mitchell will seemingly continue to draw the start at point guard, while Royce O'Neale slots in at shooting guard.
