Ricky Rubio (back) doubtful for Suns on Thursday

Phoenix Suns point guard Ricky Rubio (back) is doubtful for Thursday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans.

What It Means:

Suns head coach Monty Williams said Rubio is a game-time call, but he's listed as doubtful on the injury report. He was limited to a season-low 16.1 minutes on Tuesday while attempting to play through the back issue. If he sits out Thursday, look for Tyler Johnson to start and Elie Okobo to play more off the bench.

The Suns are 4.5-point home favorites and have the second-highest implied total (119.0 points) on Thursday's two-game slate, per numberFire's NBA Heat Map.
