Unrestricted free-agent guard Ricky Rubio (knee) continues to rehab after tearing his left ACL in December. However, that doesn't seem to be stopping the Cavaliers from looking to add him back to the roster, assuming the price is right. The 31-year-old played 38 games for Cleveland last season, averaging a respectable 13.1 points, 6.6 assists, 4.1 rebounds and 1.4 steals. But after sustaining the injury, he was traded to Indiana ahead of the deadline. Nonetheless, although it may not be until January, it's unknown when Rubio will officially be available to return to the court. Still, if he ends up in Cleveland, he'll likely receive a generous serving of minutes off the bench. Additionally, factoring in Darius Garland and Collin Sexton's inability to stay healthy over the years, Rubio could also get some starts here or there in 2022-23.
The Pacers are trading guard Caris LeVert and a 2022 second-round pick (via Miami) to the Cavaliers. In exchange, Cleveland will be sending Ricky Rubio (knee), a 2022 first-round pick (lottery-protected), a 2022 second-round pick (via Houston), and a 2027 second-round pick (via Utah) back to Indiana. After Collin Sexton (knee) was lost for the year, Rubio was instrumental in the Cavaliers' success. He averaged career-high 13.1 points (tied) to go along with 6.6 assists, 4.1 rebounds, and 1.4 steals. However, a torn ACL also ended his year. Nonetheless, Rubio still has some gas left in the tank. Yet, it's unknown where he will land during the 2022-23 campaign, but he is expected to remain relevant on the fantasy end, at least for a few more seasons.
Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Ricky Rubio (knee) has been diagnosed with a torn ACL in his left knee, ending his 2021-22 season, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Rubio sustained the injury during Tuesday's game, which was arguably his best of the season, delivering 27 points, 13 rebounds, and nine assists. The loss of Rubio deals a further blow to the Cleveland backcourt, which has already been without Collin Sexton (knee), who will miss the remainder of the year, and is currently down Darius Garland (health and safety protocols) as well. Some combination of Kevin Pangos, RJ Nembhard Jr., and Malik Newman is likely to take over PG duties, while Isaac Okoro and Denzel Valentine have short-term assists upside. Rubio is set to become an unrestricted free agent at season's end.
Cleveland Cavaliers guard Ricky Rubio (knee) was injured during Tuesday's matchup against the Pelicans. Rubio was having a fantastic evening before succumbing to the ailment, finishing with 27 points, 13 rebounds, and nine assists. He will have an MRI on his left knee on Wednesday, but fantasy managers should at least expect him to miss Thursday's meeting with the Washington Wizards, although his absence could be much longer. With the team down Darius Garland, Cedi Osman, and Jarrett Allen because of COVID-19 health and safety protocols, Isaac Okoro and Kevin Pangos may handle the ball-handling duties for the next game or so until Garland or Osman can make it back.
