Suns' Tyler Johnson starting in place of injured Ricky Rubio (back)

Phoenix Suns guard Tyler Johnson will start on Thursday night in the team's game against the New Orleans Pelicans.

What It Means:

Johnson is taking the place of Ricky Rubio, who will miss Thursday's game against the Pelicans with a back ailment. Jevon Carter got the nod in the starting lineup the last time Rubio missed, but it'll be Johnson in charge of the first-team offense on Thursday night.

Our models currently project Rubio for 17.3 FanDuel points across 25 minutes of action.
