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.

EDGE Analysis

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, Tony Jones of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

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. 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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Rubio managed 10 points (4-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight assists, seven rebounds and four steals across 36 minutes in Saturday's 114-106 win over the Nets.

EDGE Analysis

After posting double-digit shot attempts in eight of his first nine games, Rubio has started to settle into more of the facilitator role he's filled so well over his career. The seven-year veteran dished out eight dimes for the second time in the last three games while also logging multiple steals for the third consecutive contest. Rubio is still managing to keep his scoring totals at decent levels as well, as he's scored in double digits in four of the last five games and also opened November with a season-best 30-point effort. The Spaniard figures to continue filling out the stat sheet moving forward, with the occasional scoring outburst always possible as well.

Rubio tallied 30 points (8-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 11-11 FT), five rebounds, one assist and two steals across 37 minutes in Wednesday's 112-103 overtime win against the Trail Blazers.

EDGE Analysis

Rubio's stat line was decidedly atypical for a player who's traditionally made his living off setting up teammates for scoring opportunities. The roles were reversed Wednesday, as the veteran point guard put the offense on his shoulders, draining a clutch three-pointer from the top of the arc with 30.9 seconds left in overtime to give the Jazz a seven-point lead that they wouldn't relinquish. Rubio's point total was a career high and his assist total was a career low, illustrating how much of an outlier performance he generated. The 27-year-old has been much better offensively since arriving in Utah, however, as his 17.5 points per game, 43.7 percent shooting and 37.2 percent success rate from three-point range are all career bests.

Rubio supplied 20 points (8-15 FG, 4-8 3Pt), six assists, two rebounds and four steals across 34 minutes in Monday's 104-89 win over the Mavericks.

EDGE Analysis

Rubio continues to feature an improved shot, one that's led to career-bests in scoring (15.7) and field-goal percentage (43.0). The 27-year-old is also sporting his best figure in the rebounding category (4.9) since the 2014-15 campaign, even as his assists have suffered a slight downturn. The veteran point guard's bump in usage and improved offense are keeping his fantasy prospects high in all formats at the moment.

Rubio registered 21 points (6-13 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and one steal across 32 minutes in Saturday's 96-81 victory over the Lakers.

EDGE Analysis

Rubio put up a season-high 21 points on Saturday, helping the Jazz to a comfortable victory. Rubio has had a terrific start to his career in Utah, appearing to have formed an instant connection with his teammates. He finished last season with an offensive outburst, and has carried that form through his first six games. Rubio has also been excellent on the defensive end, averaging 1.8 steals per contest. His turnovers are going to be a slight negative on his output, but his other numbers should more than make-up for this.

Rubio posted 15 points (6-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 assists, four rebounds, four steals and a blocked shot across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 97-88 loss to the Suns.

EDGE Analysis

Rubio's performance was marred by seven turnovers, which scaled back his fantasy numbers on the night. He pretty much performed as expected, with moderate point totals and elite assist numbers, a theme which should continue for Rubio as long as he keeps his minutes. He's a great source for assists in roto formats.
