Suns' Ricky Rubio (back) won't play on Thursday
Phoenix Suns guard Ricky Rubio will not play on Thursday in the team's game against the New Orleans Pelicans.
Rubio was able to suit up on Tuesday night with the back ailment, but he was listed as doubtful entering game day. He'll indeed miss Thursday's bout against the Pels, and Tyler Johnson will likely get the nod in his place.
In 11 games this season, Rubio has averaged 12.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, 8.1 assists and 33.3 FanDuel points per contest.
